New Netflix Horror Movies 2015 - August 2015 Week 3 Update
Netflix has been rather light on the new horror movies they have added to their library. We have included mostly horror films, with some movies a little more on the Sci-Fi end. I am sure we will see many more horror titles added in September. Netflix might even be planning a tremendous VOD update for this Halloween 2015. Tell us in the comments what you think about these movies and TV series Spooksville. Our full list of VOD movies included below.
First Look at Chris Hemsworth in GHOSTBUSTERS Reboot
Chris Hemsworth‘s dorky first look in Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters (2016) is priceless. Glad to see that Hemsworth will also get to see some action unless this is the vehicle to run the daily Ghostbusters chores. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones along with Bill Murray will star in Ghostbusters (2016), the Ghostbusters reboot.
The 9 Best Unsolved GAME OF THRONES Mysteries
HBO’s Game of Thrones TV series is such an epic story that spans vast lands that sometimes things are left unanswered. IGN recently released an excellent video covering the best Game of Thrones unsolved mysteries so far. This video is riddled with spoilers, be warned. HBO has caught up with the story from the books and will be in the lead from now on with storytelling. After watching this video, I have to admit, I have to watch the entire Game of Thrones TV series again soon.
Mike Flanagan Announced to Direct Ouija 2
Mike Flanagan has been selected to co-write with Jeff Howard and direct the upcoming Ouija 2 (2016) which is a direct sequel to Ouija (2014).

Flanagan is a horror director who has been producing some good horror movies in the recent years. The official plot is still to be revealed, but Annalise Basso (Oculus (2013)) has been confirmed to star in Ouija 2 (2016). Are you excited that Mike Flanagan has joined Ouija 2?
Trailer for Live-Evil with Tony Todd
Ari Kirschenbaum‘s Live-Evil (2015) now has a trailer attached to the movie.

Live-Evil is featuring at the Diabolique International Film Festival 2015, on September 25-27, the Horror in the Hills Film Festival 2015, on October 17, and the North Carolina Festival 2015. Honestly, the trailer needs some work and features a lot of the twisted humor of the film which saves it a little. Charlene Amoia, Vladimir Kulich, and Tony Todd star in Live-Evil.
Dark Was the Night DVD Release Date Details
Jack Heller‘s Dark Was the Night (2014) is getting a DVD release this upcoming September 1, 2015, via RLJ Entertainment. The DVD cover art has not been released yet, but we will post it once it is released. Steve Agee, Nick Damici, and Kevin Durand star in Dark Was the Night.
Insane-Action ATTACK ON TITAN Live-Action Movie Trailer - Best Trailer Yet!
If you were already satisfied with the previous trailers for Shinji Higuchi‘s Attack on Titan (2015), then this new action-packed trailer is going to blow you away. I was still a little worried how some elements of the horror anime would translate to the live-action adaptation movie, but this trailer completely squashed those thoughts. There are lots of Titans, blood, gore, fights and pure awesomeness. Seriously watch this trailer now, even if the audio is in Japanese, you can still enjoy this trailer. Haruma Miura, Kiko Mizuhara and Kanata Hongo star in Attack on Titan.
Friday the 13th TV Series Coming to The CW!?
The CW President Mark Pedowitz confirmed that they are developing a Friday the 13th TV series. Imagine Jason Voorhees as a weekly horror TV series character? The TV series is already being coined as a “sophisticated, horror/crime thriller” that could follow “the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake.” Will this new Friday the 13th TV series coexist with the new Friday the 13th movie coming out May 13, 2016, from Paramount? Nothing is 100% final yet, but more news as this TV series matures.
First Poster for Don't Knock Twice - New Demonic Witch Movie
Director Caradog W. James has revealed the new movie poster for Don’t Knock Twice. Don’t Knock Twice is going to be a fun horror movie about a supernatural vengeful witch. The poster looks incredibly creepy with that long thin witch arm. Katee Sackhoff leads the cast including Javier Botet and Nick Moran. I am stoked to see the trailer already, but I am also curious if you are also interested in this new horror movie.

DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY w/ Martin Scorsese & Leonardo DiCaprio
Erik Larson's Devil in the White City is one of the most wondrous and horrifying real-life stories you can ever read. At the "good" end of the spectrum, you have the White Fair in Chicago in the early 1890's. The beautiful white city and debut of the Ferris Wheel. The Devil in the White City is played by serial killer H.H. Holmes. Paramount has decided to pick up this incredible tale again with Leonardo DiCaprio starring as H.H. Holmes, and Martin Scorsese set to direct. This news is fantastic, I have been waiting for a movie adaptation since I first read the book a decade ago.

I am all about the bonus features but although there are a lot of featurettes, the only bonus feature that I am looking forward to is the deleted scenes. The Blu-ray cover art looks extra creepy with the image that was chosen, the right choice. Cast in Insidious: Chapter 3 is Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Angus Sampson, and Lin Shaye.
[Fan Film] Spawn: The Recall - Best Live Action Spawn Film
Spawn has had a very rough time, both in the live action adaptations and the animated versions. Thankfully, Irissee has created one of the most wonderous and beautiful Spawn films ever. You have to wait until around half of the video to see Spawn, but the special effects do him justice. We also see “The Witch” who is another character with incredible powers. Enjoy the video and leave your comments below.

[Marvel Fan Film] She Thor VS Zombie Hulk
In what can only be described as a great piece of Marvel fan film and originality, we have She Thor vs Zombie Hulk. Milton Pool of Miltonius Arts released this gem of a short film that took him six months to create. The art, color, attention to detail and action all mesh beautifully well. This is an excellent film that I hope gets many more added to the series.

[Video] History of Freddy Krueger / A Nightmare on Elm Street in 5 Minutes
Idiomanic was so kind to post a 5-minute video that touches on all the important lore and myth from the Freddy Krueger franchise A Nightmare on Elm Street. As a big fan of the original series, I had to watch this video and was entertained by the narrator. Most of these details may have forgotten over the many years by most fans but check out the video for yourself and tell us what you think.
[Horror Short] Strange Thing - Strange Doors and Other-Worldly Things
Alrik Bursell‘s horror short film Strange Thing comes complete with a poster, synopsis and of course, the short video. What is it about people and opening strange doors. The short film does build up in time and is a little boring in the beginning as the suspense/story develops. The ending was done nicely. I thought the acting spoiled some of the elements for me. The poster, acting and setting are all expected with a low budget film so that must be remembered when judging. Watch the short for yourself and tell us what you think of it.
