Upcoming 2012 Horror Releases to Keep Your Eyes On!!
I was scrolling around on YouTube the other day and came across a plethora of horror movies slated to come out sometime in 2012. Some I’ve heard of, others this is the first exposure I’ve had to. Check them out and tell me what you think (they are presented in no special order):
Directed by Marco Ristori and Luca Boni and written by Ristori, Boni, and Guglielmo Favilla, this is based on the 1988 videogame. Here’s the plot:
A bacteriological weapon – developed by the US Government to create a super soldier – spreads an epidemic in a quiet little town in the middle od Eastern Europe. All citiziens have been turned into infected zombies. The plan is: to bring an atomic bomb into the nuclear plant of the city to pretend a terrible accident. No one has to know the truth. A commando of mercenaries is hired to do the mission. The battle is on. Hordes of monsters against a bunch of men.
Who will survive?
The next chapter in nordic horror folklore is here! “Thale” trailer has finally been released and this is so much more than we ever expected. We always knew that trolls and other nordic tales creatures are kinkier than zombies and vamps, and thus the Huldra tale is soon to be told over screens.
Told through the written and illustrated journal of Edward Young as he battles his way through an unexplainable outbreak of the walking dead a decade after the American Civil War. After returning home from a hunting trip to find a horrific re-animation of his wife Julia, and that their son Adam has disappeared, Edward starts to record his experiences with the walking dead as well as the unexplainable outbreak that has torn his family apart, and threatens all of mankind. Throughout his harrowing journey Edward finds friendship, guidance and love amongst chaos and despair, when all else seems to be lost in a world robbed of its humanity.
EXIT HUMANITY looks pretty kick ass!!
A TV crew is making a documentary about this new pathology. It’s the Gerber syndrome, a highly contagious virus with devastating effects. Through the testimony of three people that are directly involved with the disease (a doctor, an infected girl, a young security agent) the truth is revealed, and it is way more terrifying than what the authorities want us to believe.Because the Gerber syndrome is already between us. And it’s very, very contagious…
Check out their Facebook page. Here’s the trailer:
Instead of dumb helpless Americans (that’s for you Lindsay), we got some happy, wild, life-loving sexy Brazilian teens, venturing to the beautiful Island on the eastern coast of Brazil, for a VIP party. The invitation to the party comes in a small video camera that they would have to wear around their neck during the party. The cameras would record randomly so the guests never know when they are on. In the end, they return the cameras to the event organizers, which will make a movie from all the kinky stuff caught…
But then – the horror comes
In the middle of an extremely hot summer in Moscow, snow starts falling and zombies attack a pre-election protest march (which actually now occurs all around Russia!).
Konstantin – a Moscow journalist, hides from the onslaught with the daughter of a local tycoon in a hardware store. Captain Igor Knyazev kranks up the only working tank, whilst his lover, Dasha is running away from her angry husband, who has learned of the pair’s betrayal, and wants revenge, regardless of the weather…Faced with horrifyingly gripping news material, a dedicated cameraman, Vlad, captures the strange events on video as priest Father Michael gets out his trusty axe …
A disparate group of young urban offenders and their care workers embark on a community service weekend in the strange, remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with some local inbred youths rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare for all involved…
In the wake of the end of the world, a family of four desperately tries to survive against insurmountable odds. Their goal: escaping the city and traveling to the rural community they once called home, Dover’s Bend. The constant threat of a violent death forcing them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest, soon to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries.
A twisted horror take on The Legend Of The Donner Party….”Donner Pass” has a well-known and gruesome history — the place where George Donner and his party of settlers got stuck in the winter of 1846 and had to resort to cannibalism to survive.
Some say the Donner Party left its mark on those mountains. They say a curse remains to this day — a hunger that can make anyone capable of unspeakable evil.
For seven teens that head up for a ski weekend, it’s just a scary story to tell around the campfire. But when one of the group turns up not only dead, but half-eaten, they’re forced to confront the possibility that the legend may be true.
Nothing — and no one — is what it seems in this tightly woven dark thriller. And history doesn’t always stay in the past.
Samuel Gradius has lived too long. In his 500 years on earth he has seen empires rise and fall, changed the course of history with his bare hands and witnessed countless revolutions with his own eyes. Samuel Gradius is a vampire, perhaps the only vampire, and he’s had enough. He wants to die.
No longer content with the idea of simple suicide, he makes the decision to go out in the ways of old. He wants a warrior’s death. THE ETERNAL follows Samuel on the pursuit of his own personal oblivion, he hopes, at the hands of someone worthy. An action-packed horror/thriller with a vicious sense of humor.
These are just a few of the interesting looking horror flicks coming out (hopefully) sometime in 2012. I’ll be keeping my eyes on all these!!
