NAJOČEKIVANIJI HORORI 2017.

   
Dok ima života, ima i nade. Tako bar kažu. Pa, dobro. Evo čemu se imamo nadati od horora i hororoidnosti koje bi trebalo da postanu dostupne našem gledanju tokom ove godine.
Namerno sam ovom prilikom malo proširio granice toga šta sam uvrstio u izbor, jer iz opisa i najava nije uvek moguće precizno odrediti koliko će „mračno“ i „zlokobno“ određena storija biti ekranizovana, pa zato u donjim naslovima sasvim sigurno ima i filmova koji su možda više SF, ili triler, ili nekakvo neodredivo arty ludilo nego što su čisti horori – ali, tim bolje!
Na ovom blogu se ionako ne forsira žanrovska ortodoksija, i ne očekujte da na ovoj listi vidite nove nastavke KONJURINGA, VIDŽA TABLE, ANABELE, PETKA 13-OG i ne znam ni ja kojeg više rimejka i reimadžininga. Stavio sam samo nekolicinu –vrlo malo- od te generičke, holivudske sorte, malo iz zezanja (Tom Kruz protiv Mumije!), malo iz krhke nade da ne-znam-više-koji-nastavak možda bude gledljiv (novi Čaki)... Ali, naglasak je na onome što lično preferiram i na blogu promovišem – a to su manje znani, nekonvencionalni, žanrovski i estetski smeli, originalni, granico-probojni filmovi.
Opise sam nalazio sam širom neta, na najrazličitijim mestima, i editovao ih po svojoj ćudi (skraćivo, kombinovao, popravljao...), da budu što koncizniji i precizniji, sa naglaskom na najbitnijim detaljima zapleta i ekipe (ko režira, ko glumi). Oni su uglavnom praćeni mojim kratkim komentarima, tamo gde sam imao potrebu nešto da dodam ili naglasim.
Poređani su otprilike po visini očekivanja – od onih od kojih očekujem prilično mnogo, do onih od kojih ne očekujem skoro ništa sem da se mogu pogledati do kraja, bez gašenja.

Raw
Director: Julia Ducournau
With Raw, French director Julia Ducournau hasn't just made one of the best horror films of the year to come, she's also managed to make its best coming-of-age movie, too. Young Justine (Garance Marillier) is a first-year veterinary-school student following in the footsteps of the rest of her family. Unfortunately, despite being raised as a strict vegetarian, she soon realizes that she’s got a taste for flesh — all kinds of flesh.
Mudri koji su se zatekli u Beogradu u vreme Autorskog festivala jesenas ovaj divan film već su overili, a oni koji nisu, za sada imaju moj rivju, i da čekaju da procuri na net. U Americi kreće 10. marta.

Madame Hyde
Director: Serge Bozon
Isabelle Huppert, José Garcia, Romain Duris
About an an eccentric teacher who is despised by her colleagues and her students. One stormy night, she is struck by lightning and faints. When she comes to, she feels completely different… but will Mrs. Géquil be able to control the powerful and dangerous Mrs. Hyde who also now lives inside her?
Najbolja živa glumica i dobitnica Zlatnog Ghoula, Izabel Iper, igra Džekil-Hajd gospu? KUPLJENO!


The Void 
Directors: Jeremy Gillespie & Steven Kostanski
In the middle of a routine patrol, officer Daniel Carter happens upon a blood-soaked figure limping down a deserted stretch of road. He rushes the young man to a nearby rural hospital staffed by a skeleton crew, only to discover that patients and personnel are transforming into something inhuman. As the horror intensifies, Carter leads the other survivors on a hellish voyage into the subterranean depths of the hospital in a desperate bid to end the nightmare before it's too late.
Iako sam oprezan zbog minulog rada tvoraca ovoga, ipak rivjui, trejler i opisi deluju više nego primamljivo; uz malo sreće, možda dobaci čak do 3+


A Cure for Wellness
Director: Gore Verbinski
An ambitious young executive (Dane DeHaan) is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps but soon suspects that the spa's miraculous treatments are not what they seem.
Krvavi Verbinski (RINGmejk, PIRATI KARIBA…) radi weird triler-horor – trejler deluje obećavajuće! Može biti lepa trojka od ovoga.


The Killing Of A Sacred Deer
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos (Očnjak)
Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Alicia Silverstone
A surgeon takes a young boy under his wing, only for the boy to turn out to be more sinister than he imagined.
Ludi Jorgos i do sada je često obigravao oko mrakova skoro hororičnih – krajnje je vreme da malo dublje zaroni u tu teritoriju. Naravno, ovo će biti arty „triler“ a ne klasični horor (valjda!), ali tek treba videti u čemu se sastoji „sinister“ misterija vezana za tog dečaka...



Alien: Covenant

Director: Ridley Scott (Alien)
Cast: Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender
The crew of the spaceship the Covenant discover a world that might be a paradise, but its sole inhabitant, android David, the only survivor of the doomed Prometheus mission, has a dire warning for them.
A second chapter in an Alien prequel trilogy.
Dekica Skot nas je debelo razočarao svojim Promotejom, pa zato s velikim oprezom ali i nešto nade očekujem ovaj film za koji je naglašeno da će biti čisti horor a ne debilna SF denikenovština: deda je u komodu ostavio svoje velike „ideje“ i rešio da proba opet da nas plaši, kao nekad. Ima li u starcu udarca? Sumnjam, ali ovo ću ipak gledati prvog dana kad dođe u bioskop, u najranijem mogućem terminu!


Suspiria
Director: Luca Guadagnino
Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth
A ballet dancer discovers that her Berlin dance school is a cover for something much more sinister. A remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria (1977). Set in Berlin.
Reditelj solidne arty drame A BIGGER SPLASH uzeo na sebe da rimejkuje nerimejkljiv, unikatan, duboko autorski film? Da vidimo i to čudo! Samo da ne bude „in name only“ jadnost, poput THE WOODS, ili film za fusnote i studije, tipa Van Santovog PSIHA.


Strolling Invader
(that title might not stick)
Director: Kiyoshi Kurosawa
The film concerns Narumi (Masami Nagasawa), who is experiencing difficulties in her marriage with Shinji (Ryuhei Matsuda). But when he disappears and suddenly returns, his entire demeanor has changed and soon reveals he is an alien involved in a mission to invade Earth. At the same time, a family is murdered, leading an investigator (Hiroki Hasegawa) into the fold.
Kijoši + vanzemaljci + ubistva celih familija? Zvuči kao recept za dobru zabavu!


Okja
Director: Bong Joon-Ho (Snowpiercer)
Cast: Ahn Seo-hyun, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal
A young Korean girl travels the world trying to protect her best friend, a giant creature called Okja, from a malevolent corporation. Something somewhere between The Host and E.T.
Ovo će, izgleda, više da naginje benevolentnom monster muviju, ali – ko zna? Možda bude i nešto mračnije, godzilasto ili čak i hostično?


Annihilation

Director: Alex Garland (Ex Machina)
Cast: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh
Four women, the Biologist (Natalie Portman), the Psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the Surveyor, and the Anthropologist, venture into an environmental disaster zone known as Area X and begin to make some haunting discoveries. Adaptation of a book by Jeff VanderMeer.
Rađeno prema SF-horor-weird romanu istaknutog Lavkraftomrsca i umišljenog, arogantnog skota, ali – premisa je zabavna, treba očekivati biljo-životinjsko-ljudske kreature, mutante i čuda, plus Garland je tu...


Safe Neighborhood
Director: Chris Peckover
Cast: Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Olivia DeJonge (The Visit)
Virginia Madsen leads this colorful home-invasion-with-a-twist, which is best viewed knowing as little as possible about the premise. Spoiler-free, Safe Neighborhood takes place in silent suburbia, when a lone babysitter is forced to protect a young boy from an unconventional home invasion. Expect fireworks.
Best described as Home Alone meets Michael Haneke’s Funny Games, the sadistic horror comedy Safe Neighborhood is the kind of film that’s tough to categorize but easy to enjoy, especially if you like watching teenagers do some very twisted things for the holiday season.
Medsenovu obožavam (njena uloga u Kendimenu je jedna od deset, ako ne i pet, najboljih ženskih performansi u hororu svih vremena) a zaplet zvuči intrigantno. Istina, Virdžinija ovde ima epizodnu ulogu, ali sve kritike ovog filma zvuče vrlo napaljujuće.


A Dark Song
Director: Liam Gavin
Cast: Steve Oram, Catherine Walker
This small Irish film premiered at Fantastic Fest 2016 where it was incredibly well received, and it sounds like an eerie, disturbing foray into the horror of the occult.
The film follows Sophia, a young woman who insists on renting an old house in the remote countryside so that she can hire an occultist. She needs him to perform an ancient invocation ritual, the Abramelin, to summon up Sophia’s Guardian Angel so her wish can be granted - to talk to her murdered child.
The ritual is an extremely arduous one. They are to seal themselves in the house for months as it plays out. As they get deeper into the rite they run the risk of turning on each other, of going mad. But when Solomon finds out that Sophia has not been truthful about her wish, a greater danger threatens them. In the dark, they find that they are no longer alone in the house. They are now in the world of real angels, and real demons.
The less known before going into this movie the better, so we won’t disclose any more details here, but the ritual itself sounds incredibly freaky.


Strangled
(A martfüi rém, 2016)
Director: Árpád Sopsits
Smešten u ruralni deo Mađarske šezdesetih godina prošlog veka, govori o seriji svirepih ubistava mladih devojaka i mladiću koji je pogrešno optužen kao počinitelj. Istovremeno pratimo odlučnog detektiva koji postaje opsednut slučajem. Film Árpáda Sopsitsa tek je naizgled običan psihološki triler o serijskom ubici. Iako poseduje sve klasične žanrovske karakteristike, od proseka ga odvaja besprekorna kamera Gabora Szaboe koji nokturalnim tonovima izuzetno dojmljivo pridonosi mračnom ugođaju filma, odlična rekonstrukcija vremena i mesta radnje te efektan prikaz društvenih prilika i situacija socijalističke Mađarske. Baziran na istinitoj priči.
Mađarski psiho-horor? Yes, please! Ta suicidalno-mizantropsko-bezdušna nacija morala je do sada da dâ daleko veći doprinos filmskom hororu!


Heretiks
Director: Paul Hyett (The Seasoning House)
Cast: Michael Ironside, Clare Higgins
The Witch and A Field in England showed that there is still a great audience for period horror, and  Paul Hyett is dishing up some good old evil nun action with Heretiks. A young woman is rescued from execution, but encounters something far more terrifying in the depths of a 17th century convent.
Zlokobni samostan u 17. veku + najbolja Zla Maćeha ikada – Kler Higins iz Helrejzera kao Glavna Mama Na Opatice?! DA, DA, DA!


Seclusion
Director: Erik Matti
Catholic priests assailed by inner demons fall under the spell of a mysterious child healer in veteran Filipino genre director Erik Matti’s skillful reworking of the Omen conceit, in the elegant, nostalgic style reminiscent of Spanish horror films like The Devil’s Backbone. Like that film, Seclusion features a war-torn backdrop that serves as a bleak allegory on blind faith and the lure of false gods in a land overrun by fascism. By setting the yarn in 1947, the screenplay summons a bygone era when piety and superstition were equally prevalent. 
Four deacons are sent to a monastery in the provinces for their obligatory seven-day retreat shortly before being ordained in the priesthood. They are warned by the bishop that this is the time when they are most vulnerable to temptations of the devil. Before long, the confined space and solitude start to play tricks on the novices’ minds. Matti whets one’s appetite with flashes of ghoulish visions but makes them ambiguous enough to be mere hallucinations.


Mother
Director: Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan)
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Domhnall Gleeson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris
A young couple receive some uninvited guests in their home.
Aronovski radi kućnu invaziju? Hm, tu mora biti neki zanimljiv engl ili tvist...


It
Director: Andrés Muschietti
Cast: tamo neka deca (među njima jedan klinac iz STRANGER THINGS)
A group of small-town Maine schoolchildren, the Losers' Club, fighting an ancient, shape-shifting evil that terrorizes the town of Derry every 27ish years. They return to Derry as adults for a rematch.
Opšteobožavani Kingov roman meni je oduvek bio bezveze (detinjast, nestrašan i napadno plitak). Opšteobožavana TV serijica po njemu bila mi je mlaka i nikakva (osim Tima Karija u naslovnoj ulozi). Od ovoga sam imao izvesna očekivanja dok je Cary Fukunaga bio u igri kao reditelj. Sad, kad su, kako izgleda, krenuli rutinersko-odradek rutom, i ovoga najurili zbog „kreativnih neslaganja“, moja očekivanja su splasnula. Pazi samo: reditelj govnaste MAME i scenarista negledane ali opštepopljuvane ANABELE... Jedino što obećava jeste to što film slika Čanvuk Parkov stalni dir. fotografije, Chung-hoon Chung, pa možemo očekivati bombonicu za oko. Ali teško da ćemo dobiti mnogo više od toga.


Housewife
Director: Can Evrenol (Baskin)
The first English-language feature from Turkish director Can Evrenol. The new movie will continue to explore the themes of his previous work — sexuality, family, social claustrophobia, and nightmares — except this time, there will be a female lead, a woman who starts to lose her grasp on reality 20 years after her mom killed her sister and father. If Baskin was his John Carpenter homage, Evrenol says, Housewife will be a nod to Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci


It Comes At Night
Director: Trey Edward Shults (Krisha)
Cast: Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough
A father must protect his family from a mysterious presence terrorizing them in their home.


The Dark Tower

Director: Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair)
Cast: Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey
An 11-year-old boy is transported to a dimension called Mid-World, where he aids gunslinging knight Roland on a quest to the titular dark tower as they’re pursued by a malevolent sorcerer.
Nikad nisam otkidao na ovu Kingovu franšizu: prva KULA (u formi zbirke povezanih priča) mi je bila OK, ali već drugu sam besno bacio o zid kad je ono neko bezveznjačko čudo iz čista mira izgmizalo iz bare i odgrizlo revolverašu dva prsta, i nikad me više nije ni zanimalo da mu pratim dalje „avanture“ u ovoj fantazi sapunici. Ipak, film bi mogao biti gledljiv (kilava trojka kao maksimum, verovatno). Uostalom, dobitnik Zlatnog Ghoula, Mekonahej, igra negativca!


Get Out
Director: Jordan Peele
Jordan Peele makes his directorial debut with this horror film about a black man meeting his white girlfriend’s parents for the first time at their country home. It’s all very awkward but well-intentioned — until the boyfriend starts recognizing the other people on the property and realizes they're all missing persons. Comedian Jordan Peele's race-based horror movie combines genuine thrills with a no-holds-barred critique of black-white relations.
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner meets The Stepford Wives. But it’s the fact that Peele doesn’t pull a single one of his punches that makes his Blumhouse-backed debut a must-see event.
Crna komedija (pun intended)! Samo izvol'te!



Killing Ground 
Director: Damien Power
Camping is once again very bad for your health in Damien Power's outwardly familiar but harrowing thriller. In the movies, it’s almost invariably a terrible, if not downright fatal, decision to go camping — as we have learned over and over in films like The Hills Have Eyes and Blair Witch, to name just a couple. But Tasmania-born Damien Power’s impressive first feature, Killing Ground, transcends the cliches even as the film uses plenty of familiar tropes, laying down a solid hour of effective buildup to a duly hair-raising, prolonged climax.


78/52
Director: Alexandre O. Philippe
A hypnotic film-geek doc about the 'Psycho' shower scene digs deep into the mystique of the Hitchcock film that shook the world.
More than anything, though, 78/52 is a movie about watching Psycho. It features a galvanizing litany of insights and fan theories from the likes of Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, Peter Bogdanovich, Karyn Kusama, Walter Murch, Danny Elfman, and Elijah Wood, plus a smattering of academics and film historians.
Ceo film o jednom minutu koji je promenio moderni horor! Bring it ON!


The Belko Experiment 
Director: Greg McLean (Wolf Creek)
Are you ready for an adult Hunger Games? Or maybe Office Space meets Battle Royale? Belko finds a group of happy-go-lucky office workers whose day takes a turn for the horrible when their whole building locks down and a dispassionate voice comes over the intercom demanding that they murder each other. (As usual, everyone's got secret chips in their heads that will kill them if they don't.) This looks like one for the gore hounds.
MekLin je radio svašta u zadnje vreme, ponešto doslovno negledljivo, pa s oprezom pristupam i ovom umereno obećavajućem filmu.


Thoroughbred
Director: Cory Finley
Cast: Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Anton Yelchin.
About a pair of teenage girls who, in the process of rebuilding their estranged friendship, discover an affinity for killing. Being a teenager can be a horror show on its own, and being a teenage girl entangled in toxic friendship with another teenage girl is truly one of society’s great natural terrors. Taylor-Joy and Cooke both have the stuff to play some seriously weird disaffected youths, and if their chemistry pops, this could be a wonderfully weird emotional journey — with murder!


Berlin Syndrome 
Director: Cate Shortland
Australian thriller. Teresa Palmer, coming off an excellent lead performance in the summer surprise Lights Out, stars in this movie about a woman who has a one-night stand with an alluring man and wakes up to find she’s been locked in his apartment.
Shortland’s intensely elegant claustrophobic thriller, the ugly subversion of seductive exteriors is built into the film’s very narrative, as a heady, sexy holiday hook-up turns overnight into an abusive abduction — cuing a nightmarish game of sexual control and captivity, in which toxic masculinity calls the shots.


The Mimic
Director: Huh Jung (Hide and Seek, 2013)
Cast: Yum Jung-ah (A Tale of Two Sisters, 2003), Park Hyuk-kwon (Secret Reunion, 2010)
A story of the Jangsan Tiger, who mimics human voices to lure them close, and a family affected by the creature.
Plot details are scant, but director Huh Jung impressed with his debut Hide and Seek and adding in a mystical element here could bend well with his style.


RV: Resurrected Victims
Director: Kwak Kyung-taek (Friend, 2001)
Cast: Kim Rae-won (Gangnam Blues), Kim Hae-sook (The Thieves, 2012)
Seven years ago, a man saw his mother die in front of him. She returns as an RV (Resurrected Victims), coming back to avenge her unpunished murderer. For her, that means she’s after her own son.


Bluebeard
Director: Lee Soo-young (The Uninvited, 2003)
A tale of a bankrupt doctor who becomes involved in a case of series murders when a woman's dismembered body is found in a thawing river.


The Bye Bye Man
Director: Stacy Title
The Conjuring meets a Final Destination sequel in this okay chiller about a spirit who's harmless until you say his name. In a rural area just outside Madison, three students at the University of Wisconsin — tall sexy geek Elliot (Douglas Smith), his come-hither girlfriend Sasha (Cressida Bonas), and his smooth jock BFF John (Lucien Laviscount) — arrange to room together off-campus in a rundown old mansion with rooms as big as barns. There is, of course, a spectral demon-monster on hand. As it turns out, though, he’s more like the film’s guiding spirit. He’s called the Bye Bye Man, and if you say his name out loud, even once, then — boom! — you’re doomed. He will enter your soul and turn you into a killer.
Also with: Doug Jones, Faye Dunaway, Carrie-Anne Moss


From a House on Willow Street
Director: Alastair Orr
After a young woman is kidnapped, her captors soon come to realize that in fact they may be the ones in danger and this young woman has a dark secret inside her.
Viđali smo već ovakav zaplet, ali trejler obećava lepo-izgledajući, dinamičan i nadahnut film.


Without Name
Director: Lorcan Finnegan
It’s a non-specific kind of a place, says a local of a mysterious Irish forest in Lorcan Finnegan’s debut feature Without Name, but he may as well be talking about the film itself, an eco-horror curiosity that defies not only genre expectations, but any discernible sense of purpose, too. Through a beguiling combination of chiaroscuro lighting, optical trickery, and a busy soundscape, Finnegan and his skilled technicians turn the woods into a verdant hell of swaying trees and sinking soil. But potent atmospherics alone are not enough to animate this green menace, which aspires to reflect the fraying psyche of a middle-aged land surveyor, but fails to suggest a complex and turbulent inner life. Finnegan strikes a match under wet leaves, resulting in a slow-burn thriller.
Šumski horor? Pakao se kaže šuma? Super, to je moj fetiš: bring it ON!


Jeepers Creepers 3
Director: Victor Salva
Cast: Gina Philips, Jonathan Breck
The plotline focuses on original Jeepers Creepers character Trish. She desperately tries to prevent her son meeting the same fate as her brother, and sets out to stop The Creeper once and for all.
Trish Jenner is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago. Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son suffers the same fate as her brother did, killed by the Creeper.
Trisha's son borrows one of her cars to drive across countryside to meet up with his girlfriend. She lives out in the country. When Trisha learns her son is driving alone out in the country whilst the creeper is out there, she decides to come with Tubbs and the task force on their hunt for the creeper and find it before it finds her son.
Tinejdžer u opasnosti od Prljavog Starca (Kripera) – zvuči kao vintage Salva!


Death Note
Director: Adam Wingard (Veštica iz Blera)
with Willem Dafoe
A student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone begins a crusade against evil in order to rule the world as a benevolent human god. Then a deadly game of cat and mouse begins when a reclusive detective begins to track down the young man, attempting to end his reign of terror once and for all.
Prema mangi koju je nedavno objavio Darkwood na srpskom. I prema japanskom filmu koji sam nekada davno započeo, smorio se i nikad ga završio... Ali, trebalo bi.


XX
Directors: Karyn Kusama (The Invitation), Roxanne Benjamin, Jovanka Vuckovic and Annie Clark.
Omnibus bez zajedničke teme, stila, ili ičega što bi ga povezivalo – osim što su sve pričice režirale ŽENE. Wow! Ajde, cure, da vidimo šta znate! Prvi rivjui nisu baš obećavajući, ali to je samo zbog viševekovnog izrabljivanja od strane gnusnog patrijarhata: čekajte samo, za sto, najviše dvesta godina i žene će praviti vrhunske horore isto kao muškarci! Ne može to odjednom! Jer: tiranija falusa!


Cult of Chucky
Director: Don Mancini
Cast: Fiona Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Alex Vincent
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions - an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face - a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.


Offensive
Director: Jonathan Ford
Cast:
A mature couple move to rural France only to find their picturesque retirement shattered by a gang of local thugs. When it becomes clear that the petty hooliganism is turning deadly, this mild-mannered elderly couple have no choice but to take their bloody revenge. A vicious, gory battle of the generations ensues.


Deathgasm Part 2: Goremageddon
Director: Jason Lei Howden
If you loved the gore and twisted metal of Deathgasm, the sequel has promised to go harder, better, faster, grosser with ''more gore in the first 10 minutes than the entire first Deathgasm.''
Prvi je imao veći potencijal nego što je završilo na ekranu; nadajmo se da će ovaj da izmuze više. I ne samo više krvi...


Cadaver
Director: Diederik Van Rooijen
Cast: Shay Mitchell, Stana Katic
Shay Mitchell stars as a disgraced ex-cop and recovering addict who takes a job at the morgue of the hospital in which she got sober. Soon after a mysterious and brutally massacred body is delivered, she begins to witness terrorizing and violent murders, leading her to face off against an evil entity.
Varijacija na AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE? Što da ne! Možda kraj bude manje glup!

Ovo je trebalo da izađe još pre dve godine, pa nije. Ili mnogo smrdi, ili je mnogo dobro. Ali sa Dž. Dž. Li to ne može biti loše! Mada, trejler smrducka...


A Storm In The Stars

Director: Haifaa al-Mansour (Wadjda)
Cast: Elle Fanning, Douglas Booth
The story of the love affair between Mary Shelley and Percy Bysse Shelley, and how it inspired her to write the classic Frankenstein. Penned by Australian writer Emma Jensen and Irish playwright Conor McPherson.
Dobro, ovo svakako neće biti horor, i sigurno ne očekujem novi GOTHIC, ali pošto se bavi nastankom ključnog gotskog horor romana, svakako vredi overiti i ovu verziju te slikovite storije.


Prevenge
Written and directed by Alice Lowe
Starring: Alice Lowe, Jo Hartley
Lowe plays Ruth, a very pregnant woman with some very significant emotional baggage. The father of her child is not in the picture. Alice is awkward, and keeps to herself. Also, she kills the owner of a rare-pets store within PREVENGE’s first five minutes. From there, Lowe allows us to get to know Ruth, with all of her anger and possessiveness. She seems like a sweet, young, pretty mom-to-be, if slightly aloof—but as she becomes closer to term, we see her grasp on reality start to slip away.
All of this could have easily fallen into farce or bad slasher-film territory (which might have been fun, admittedly), but Lowe maintains the severity of Ruth’s condition as the major turmoil in PREVENGE. Ruth is not nutty for the sake of our entertainment; rather, she is an unbalanced woman dealing with profound loss. She is not well, and therefore not a protagonist to laugh at—though Ruth’s curt dialogue and seduction of a truly terrible DJ are ripe territory for laughs at times.
Premisa – o bebi koja trudnjači komaduje da ubija – mogla bi da se odlično upotrebi, ali trejler mi ne baš ne obećava da je to ovde slučaj. Ipak, pisala i režirala ko-kreatorka vrlo dobrog SIGHTSEERS.


Maniac Cop
Director: John Hyams
Cast:
Follows a murderous cop who returns from the dead to patrol the New York City streets and kill those who turn to him for help.
Original director William Lustig is co-producing with Nicolas Winding Refn. Comic book hero Ed Brubaker has penned the script, so expect a slick-yet-gritty movie that'll tickle your noir side.


Angelica
Director: Mitchell Lichtenstein (Teeth)
Cast: Jena Malone
A period horror piece. Constance experiences bizarre, supernatural events after the birth of her child. A Victorian marriage is destroyed by gender divisions and attitudes towards female sexuality. Some shockingly phallic nightmares that threaten both her, and her daughter's life. Visually, Angelica is a sumptuous phantasmagoria of extravagant period details and costume design. Sadly, the tone is diluted by the erroneous presence of some shoddy CGI. Superficially a Victorian ghost story that draws its influences form classic Gothic literature, the psychosexual themes of the film remain pertinent to this day, yet amongst all the snickering and giggling evoked by the overzealous employment of melodrama and the frankly ridiculous manifestations Constance's repression takes, the message gets lost amongst the farce.
Also boasts a crew of two-time Academy Award® nominee cinematographer Dick Pope (Mr. Turner and The Illusionist), Academy Award® nominee costume designer Rita Ryack (Casino, Apollo 13) and Academy Award® winning production designer Luciana Arrighi (Howard’S End). Two-time César winner Zbigniew Preisner composed the score.


Personal Shopper
Director: Olivier Assayas
Cast: Kristen Stewart
Maureen is a young American in Paris making her living as a personal shopper for a celebrity. Also, she may have the psychic ability to communicate with spirits, just like her twin brother, Lewis, who recently passed away. Maureen soon starts receiving mysterious messages coming from an unknown source.
Ni ovo nije zaista horor, ali bavi se duhovima i ima i nekih navodno jezivih scena; ipak, ne očekujte klasičan horor. Kritike su kontroverzne, može biti smor, ali ko zna?


The Mummy
Director: Alex Kurtzman
Cast: Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe (as Dr. Henry Jekyll!)
An ancient princess is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.
Ovo smrdi po gnjusobi posle koje ćemo od blata praviti Somersovu bljuzgextravaganciju sa Brendonom iz džungle. Ali, mumiji su promenili pol, bacili grdne milione na to, ubacili u čorbu i dr Džekila (jer to je sad moderno – trpaj sve što ti padne na pamet!) pa 'ajd da vidimo...



Flatliners
Director: Niels Arden Oplev
Cast: Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries) and Ellen Page (Hard Candy)
Medical students discover how to journey into the afterworld and then resurrect themselves — but, as often happens when anyone attempts to cheat death, things begin to go amiss – with disastrous consequences.
Rimejk filma koji nisam naročito voleo ni kad je bio „originalan“...


Sky Sharks
Director: Marc Fehse
Cast: Tony Todd, Barbara Nedeljakova, Lynn Lowry
A team of Arctic geologists stumble across an abandoned laboratory in which the Nazis developed an incredible and brutal secret weapon during the final months of WW2. Deep in the ice, they accidentally awake a deadly army of flying zombie sharks ridden by genetically mutated, undead super-humans, who are unleashed into the skies, wreaking their bloodthirsty revenge on any aircraft that takes to the air. An elite task force is assembled to take on this deadly threat and stop the Sky Sharks from conquering the air, but as time runs out, the task force realises they will have to fight fire with fire, and the stage is set for the greatest flying super-mutant zombie shark air battle the world has ever seen...
Ovo će da bude nešto između jedva-podnošljivog Iron Sky i negledljivog Sharknado. Ipak, zbog tog sumanutog koncepta, daću mu šansu...


A Ghost Story 

Director: David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon)
Cast: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck
Defying horror movie conventions in this delicate portrait of a restless spirit.
Lowery’s film offers an alternative view of the supernatural — and audiences expecting a straightforward horror movie will be disappointed. In fact, A Ghost Story could actually be better suited to a museum setting, where this intermittently effective conceptual experiment’s patience-testing approach might be most appreciated. Although audiences don’t have to wait long for the ghost to arrive, the story advertised by the film’s title proves more elusive.
Sve je jasno – ovo NIJE horor, ali jeste priča o duhu (i to, po svemu sudeći, dosadna); ipak, pogledati moram, jer to je moj križ.

A evo šta mi je u vrhu najočekivanijih za 2018: Lars von Trier is back with a new serial-killer thriller, “The House That Jack Built.” The Danish filmmaker’s new feature stars Matt Dillon and Bruno Ganz and follows the highly intelligent Jack (Dillon) over the course of 12 years, introducing the murders that define his development as a serial killer.

evo filma koji je maltene niotkuda iskočio na sam vrh moje liste: BRIMSTONE! "It’s like a satanic version of The Passion of the Christ by way of von Trier’s Breaking the Waves and Antonia Bird’s Ravenous." Read more at http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/reviews/820117-brimstone-review#/slide/1

Čini se kao tip filma koji gledaš zbog komentara iz negativnih recki. Makar što se tiče toga ovaj je spot-on.

The Void sam pogledao još pre dva meseca jer sam pisao članak o njemu za RUE MORGUE. Spremite se za razočaranje: slabo je to režirano i još slabije slikano, te divne kreature čije fotke možete videti na netu - NE MOŽETE VIDETI u filmu jer su nestale u mraku, senkama, prebrzoj montaži... Glavni 'glumac' je živi užas od mrtvog puvala, ritam je nepostojeći, film je dosadnjikav, atmosfera tanka, akcija slabunjava... Od mene - 2+ (a i to najviše zbog efekata maske i par scena). Danas je procurio na net pa proverite i sami.
