2016

horror movies to look forward to in 2016!

upcominghorror2016

Whether or not we want to admit it, 2015 is nearly over. We’ve had some hits and misses this year when it comes to movies, It’s almost as if for every great film, such as Krampus, we get a pile of garbage as well. I mean, if we’re being honest, The Human Centipede III was not a great film..at all. [but I trust that you knew that already, right?] With 2016 starting on Friday, I figured now was the best time to go back to our roots, and discuss some of the horror movies that I’m most excited for in 2016. Because this list is strictly horror, it goes without saying that I’m excited for some of the superhero films coming too – such as Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. As with many things I write, spoilers are always a given..even if there are not, it’s good to give a warning just in case.

tikdfsnThe Forest:

Start the year off right on January 8th, 2016 with The Forest – a film that follows an American woman who wanders into Japan’s very own Suicide Forest in order to find her sister. What makes this creepier is knowing that Aokigahara, or The Suicide Forest is an actual place..which is where this movie takes is said to take place.

The Witch:

Even though I’m tired of possession movies, I’ve been interested in this movie since I saw the trailer. On February 26th, The Witch follows a family in 1630s New England, who gets torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession. It looks like it will have a real disturbing vibe.

Rob Zombie‘s 31:

I mean, come on. Don’t tell me that you didn’t expect to see this one on here..especially with how it got an NC-17 rating..twice. I’ve talked a ton about this movie, and the internet seems to love the idea of it, so I won’t say much – just imagine killer clowns chasing a group of people. I’m predicting Halloween as a release date for this one.

The Boy:

Also coming sooner than the others is The Boy. [coming January 22nd, 2016!] As someone who thinks dolls are creepy enough as is, The Boy follows an American nanny who shocked that her new English family’s boy is actually a life-sized doll. After violating a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is alive.


Of course, these are just a few of the many movies that are coming out this upcoming year. With more coming every day, it’s a wonder if I’ll see all the ones I’m interested in. 2015 felt underwhelming since I didn’t see as many movies as I usually do, especially cause a lot went down this past year. Hopefully 2016 will change that. With many things to come in 2016, I wanted to end this by thanking each and every one of you readers who have stuck with me this whole ride: it’s been crazy, and [as much as I say it a lot] I’m thankful there’s people out there that share my thoughts on movies, or at the very least – are willing to talk with me about them!

Tom Six’s NEWEST film is COMING: & It’s NOT another “Human Centipede” sequel!

Whether you love him or hate him, Tom Six has made a name for himself in Hollywood; with a trilogy of films that people aren’t exactly proud to say they know by name. With Six’s grand finale – The Human Centipede III: Full Sequence, coming to DVD/Blu ray on October 27th, [read my review on the third film here!] the director is now officially ready to release yet another treat for fans: this time, in the form of his debut film: [which was initially released in 2008!] What The F**k?!, [which is also known as “I Love Dries” in some countries] which will also be coming to home video, with English subtitles, in the near future.. though no exact date has been confirmed as of yet. But, knowing that international audiences are getting a film [albeit, almost 8 years later!] tells me that Six was waiting for the perfect time to re-release it. And Who knows? It’s possible this is a decent film, which’ll help sooth the feeling of how bad Final Sequence was.. There’s no trailer for this film released yet, though I’m sure if you were to dig deep into Youtube, you might be able to find something related from it’s initial release. However, we do have a synopsis for the film, which after reading it, it naturally sounds fucked up! [though, what do we really expect from the man who gave us Human Centipede?] Curious? Read on!

“What the F**k?! is an hilarious black comedy about famous Dutch singer Dries Roelvink, who is kidnapped by his two biggest fans to their trailer in the middle of nowhere. They don’t want an autograph though, but something completely different. As it turns out, the couple’s biggest wish is to have a baby of their own, but the husband is infertile. Dries is forced to live with this gruesome twosome until he gets the woman pregnant..”


If that’s not interesting, I don’t know what is! [I use the term ‘interesting’ very lightly] Because we don’t have anything we can really work with yet, I’ve included the film’s poster and a few screenshots from the film itself below! This way, you can decide for yourself if the film looks worthwhile; or a waste of time..The part that truly raises questions to me, is why Dries Roelvink agreed to play himself? Especially, based on the story! It doesn’t help that reviews I’ve seen online have been somewhat positive..though, the viewers may enjoy this kind of thing..






Once again, no trailer has been released for the film yet – at least, not an international one [don’t hold me to that, there might be no trailer at all.. yet!] but the film has an interesting concept..at least as far as Tom Six goes. The one thing that has me concerned is that it’s a black comedy, [much like Human Centipede III was] meaning it could go either way. Also, being as this is a re-release of Six‘s first film; who knows where it’ll go? As I said above, I’ve read a few positive reviews on this film, and that could be a good thing..or not.

How do you feel though about What The F**k?! ? Is it a unique concept, that will make it become a good watch/a cult classic? Or is it something that’s going to make Tom Six‘s name skyrocket through Hollywood.. as one of the worst directors of this day and age? Let me know in a comment or two! I’m both genuinely concerned, but also curious about the film.. I’ll probably watch it – just to say I did; but for no other reason!
