Blumhouse and Adam Robitel‘s Insidious: Chapter 4 (2018) has a new release date for January 5, 2018, by Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures.

Starring in Insidious: Chapter 4 are Javier Botet, Lin Shaye, and Spencer Locke.

First Look at Eli Roth's South of Hell TV Series [Video]

Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Eli Roth finally has a first look teaser trailer video for new horror TV series South of Hell Season 1. WEtv’s South of Hell Season 1 premieres November 27, 2015, with a fantastic Netflix feel of airing the complete seven episodes right after the other so you can binge watch the entire series. You will still be able to watch the series on a weekly basis, but I thought it was really cool that all seven episodes would air right away. Eli Roth executive produced the new horror TV series and also directed the pilot episode. Other episodes were directed by Ti West (House of the Devil, The Sacrament), Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who, Tank Girl), Jennifer Lynch (The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf) and Jeremiah Chechik (Helix, Reign). That is a long list of talented directors on one short TV series so I am especially excited to see what they pulled off.

Cannot wait to hear more details on the upcoming film and when I do, we will post updates to Sleepwalker.
