Another year has come and passed, and here we are — somehow, already living in 2015. This past year has been an interesting one, with it’s ups and downs; but here we are. Looking back, a lot has happened: Stephanie and I are moving, [by the end of this month] workplaces have changed, and a good chunk of interesting films have come out. 2015 is looking to be no different; with a new theme on this blog, a new roof above me next month, and a new side project [more on that on a later day] to go along with warrenisweird — 2015 is going to be a good time, I can feel it! [yay! positivity!]
As I said above, there’s a lot of good horror films coming out this year — and today, I’m going to be talking about some of the ones I’m most excited for this year; starting with a film known as “It Follows“.
By now, I’m assuming most people have heard of this one. The movie is about a girl named Jay, who believes fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after an [what she thinks is an] innocent encounter, she finds herself seeing strange visions and an having indescribable sense that someone, or something, is following her every move. Faced with this horrible feeling, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind them. What makes this movie seem so appealing is the fact that it has mostly unknown actors in it, and if that’s not enough: people who have seen it at film-festivals are already giving it a 10/10. It Follows is set to be in theatres February 4th, 2015.
Remember way back when I talked a little crowd-funded clown-infested, horror movie called “31” ? Well, it’s officially coming this year! [presumably on Halloween] Taking place just days before Halloween, five people are kidnapped and held hostage in a place called “Murder World”. While trapped, they must play a violent game called ’31’ where their mission is to survive 12 hours against a gang of evil clowns. “KILL OR BE KILLED”. I’m a huge Rob Zombie fan — both in film and music and with him calling this his “most brutal film to date” gets me all the more excited [even if there are clowns involved..]
Probably the one I’m most excited for, if just for the plot: Cooties is about a mysterious virus hitting an isolated elementary school, the kids inside transform into a feral swarm of mass savages. An unlikely hero must lead a band of teachers in the fight of their lives. Basically, we have a zombie flick..with kids as zombies! Throw in the fact that Rainn Wilson and Elijah Wood are in this, and I’m down! [did I mention that Leigh Whannell— writer of SAW and INSIDIOUS wrote this?!]
clearly, this isn’t all the movies that I’m excited for coming up in 2015: but with being at the beginning of January, I’m sure there will be loads more to talk about when the time is right. Here’s to a new year on warrenisweird and if you’ve been here since the beginning or even if you just got here by accident: I want to thank each and every one of you. as always,
