He’s Out There

Directed by Dennis Iliadis

Set at a remote lake house, a mother and her two young daughters must fight for survival after falling into a terrifying and bizarre nightmare conceived by a psychopath.

 

Psychopaths

Directed by Mickey Keating

Starring Ashley Bell, Jamie Ann Burke, Larry Fessenden

Horror indie darling Mickey Keating graces us with another written/directed by feature starring horror vets Ashley Bell and Larry Fessenden. Across the course of one night, the soul of an executed serial killer will come back to possess various followers and leave a path of mayhem in his wake. Each killer plays by their own twisted rules and not all of them may survive until the morning.

The Shape of Water

Directed by Guillermo Del Toro

Starring Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer

Del Toro takes us back to Cold War era America to a hidden government Lab where Elisa's life is changed forever when she happens upon a long hidden secret experiment. The movie already has strikingly beautiful visuals, just from what the trailers has shown us, and though I'm sure we all wish it was the secret Abe Sapien spin-off/The Creature from the Black Lagoon reboot, we will be just as pleased with Del Toro's wild imagination being brought to life by creature man Doug Jones.

Bright

Directed by David Ayer

Starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace

This is a big deal. Netflix landed Bright, starring Hollywood heavy hitters Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as well as international sensation Noomi Rapace. The film follows two officers that begrudgingly team-up in the streets of L.A. to stave back a seedy and dark magic fueled underworld of crime.  Oh yeah, Joel Edgerton is an orc, fairies exists, and the polarizing and eccentric Max Landis is scripting. This should be fun.
