For many years now, Hollywood has savored the merits of horror films. Cheap to make + A filmgoing public with an insatiable appetite for scares and thrills = Low Risk & High Rewards. As such, a new round of sequels and reboots are on the way. In today’s case, the latest installments of the Friday The 13th, Paranormal Activity, and The Ring franchises have gotten new dates. So when will you be able to go to a theater and experience the latest round of jump-scares and awkward crowd laughter? Read on!
A new Friday The 13th film has been kicked around for a while, with rumors of it adopting the “found footage” format. At one point it was going to come out on March 13, then that became November 13. It now looks like we can expect to see the latest misadventure of a bunch of camp counselors next year on May 13.
The Paranormal Activity franchise, which has seemingly cooled off a bit- or at the very least has attempted to let crowds catch their breath to avoid fatigue- also has a new date. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension will now open during this year’s Halloween horror window on October 23.
Rings, the third installment of the Ring franchise- adapted from the Japanese horror film Ringu– will be coming into theaters on November 13, now that Jason packed up his hockey mask and moved to 2016. The film will be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez, who left the Crow reboot in order to do this instead.
Which one are you most looking forward to?
