Original PARANORMAL ACTIVITY House Haunting Prank [Video]

The original Paranormal Activity (2007) house was used to film a series of pranks on unsuspecting people, and they were scared out of their minds. This prank video is hilariously funny, and I felt empathy for some of the girls who looked terrified towards the middle of the video. Enjoy the video and do not forget to like and share. Congratulations to the FX team, you made this all possible and delivered a fantastic scary prank video.

Christopher Walken Reads Edgar Allen Poe's THE RAVEN

Listening to Christopher Walken read Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven is a memorable 8-minute long experience. The 1845 classic horror poem receives new life from Walken.

Annabelle Writer Returns for ANNABELLE 2

Annabelle Writer Returns for ANNABELLE 2

Gary Dauberman returns to write Annabelle 2, but director John Leonetti will not be returning to direct the Annabelle sequel. Many thought that Annabelle (2014) was a pretty forgettable film that lacked that extra something to make it rememberable. Hopefully, the returning writer can inject some memorable scenes into the sequel now that the origin story of Annabelle is done. Are you happy that Dauberman is returning to write the script for the sequel? I thought that the scary doll had some good scenes and that the “scary scenes” did have some potential but needed some extra lighting.

Guillermo del Toro Wants to Remake Stephen King's PET SEMETARY

Guillermo del Toro Wants to Remake Stephen King's PET SEMETARY

Guillermo del Toro remaking Stephen King‘s Pet Semetary would be phenomenal! Guillermo del Toro would make a fantastic remake, but he just has no time. The director recently wrapped up Crimson Peak (2015) and is already on continuing Pacific Rim, also having some issues. Hellboy 3 is on the thoughts of everyone if a studio would back the huge financial costs. Do we add this to the already long list of films we want Guillermo del Toro to work on? We all know that a Pet Semetary remake is going to happen eventually, but directors like Alexander Aja and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo have also been associated with it to have their association fizzle into past memories. What do you think of this news?

Top 7 Demon Exorcisms in Movies

Top 7 Demon Exorcisms in Movies

Demon exorcism scenes can be remembered by viewers for years if executed right to the point where it leaves viewers with a bone-chilling experience. The exorcism ceremony is the meat of demon exorcism movies that determines if the movie is worth seeing. Religion can be a scary thing at times when dealing with possession and then thinking that there is higher powers and judgments than us. I cannot imagine what it feels like to have something taking up residence in me, can you? Can you imagine if that evil entity living in you controls you and forces you to do unrealistic gymnastics and speak in a different voice? What is exorcism: “Exorcism is the practice of evicting demons or other spiritual entities from a person or an area they are believed to have possessed.”
