Three impending horror movies, all involving chicks, or “women.” This is not a new thing as it turns out every horror movie since the beginning of time had women, or “chicks” in ’em. That’s an impressive statistic. You go, girl(s)!
Anyway, here’s the what’s what…
THERE ARE MONSTERS (Releasing 2016)
Mother and daughter trapped and tormented in a black forest by a screeching creature – it is unlike anything we have heard before. Not human. Not animal. Like a thousand horses, like a mother’s clamor, a baby’s wail. Only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, can save her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness.”
A screeching creature. An argument can be made that it’s another female nagging her ex about missed alimony payments.
THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER (Releasing July 2016 on Direct TV)
Joan makes a bloody and determined pilgrimage across a frozen landscape toward a prestigious all girls prep school where Rose and Kat find themselves stranded after their parents mysteriously fail to retrieve them for winter break. As Joan gets closer, terrifying visions begin plaguing Kat while Rose watches in horror as she becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter was originally titled February. That’s not very scary OR marketable. But hey, not my movie. If it was I’d call it The Daughter’s Blackcoat. Chicks/women/ladies/gals dig fashion, so my title makes waaay more sense.
THE OFFERING (Releasing May 6, 2016)
When Jamie, a successful reporter, finds out that her sister has died mysteriously, she travels to Singapore to uncover the truth. There, she discovers multiple deaths linked to her sister and must join forces with her sister’s husband in order to defeat a demonic entity that is using new technology to complete an ancient mission.
A demonic entity who is tech savvy. I’ve experienced just such a thing, as indicated by that foul spirit who lives in my digital toaster and always makes the toast burn. (I set it on 3 but it always comes out looking like a 12.)
I should’ve made this movie and called it Burnt Offerings and… Oh, wait – already been done in 1976. That one should’ve been about a possessed toaster that blackens the bread, and they have to call in a “breakforcist” to scrape the soul clean. Heh.
