The Conjuring 2
Paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren head to North London to deal with “the English Amityville” in The Conjuring 2. There, they finda single mother’s four children being haunted, possessed and tormented by malevolent spirits living in their home, and while at first, this seems like any of their other disturbing cases, Lorraine promptly realises that all isn’t quite as it seems….
Starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, The Conjuring 2 is based onthe true narrative of The Enfield Poltergeist, which was investigated by the Warrens in 1977.
When the trailer for this seemingly spooky sequel first made the web, horror fans quickly lauded it as one of the scariest ever … Ensure if you agree with that qualification 😛 TAGEND The Conjuring 2 hittings UK screens on the 17 th June .
On their way out of the white supremacist bar that they( while pretty hungover) agreed to play at, a punk band stumbles upon the murder of a young girl. The neo-Nazis responsible for this don’t exactly want any witness, and so- to avoid being killed too- the band barricade themselves into the titular Green Room , and try and figure out a style to escape.
Standing in their style? A murderous Patrick Stewart, along with henchman armed with big puppies and various sharp objects … This indie horror is violent, tense and very gory. Check out a trailer here 😛 TAGEND Green Room reaches UK screens on the 13 th May .
The Shallows ensures Blake Lively attacked by a great white shark and stranded on a boulder, 200 feet away from the coast. Can she out-swim a hungry shark? Likely not. But withno one around to save her- and no assist on the way- if she wants to survive, thenit’s up to her to find a way back onto dry land..
While thislooks more like a thriller than a traditional horror, it should be fast-paced enough to really get your blood pumping .. And, if nothing else, we’re intrigued to see how The Shallows willmeasure up to the great shark films that have come before it. Will it be the new Jaws ? Watch the trailer, and decide 😛 TAGEND The Shallows makes UK screens on the 12 th August .
