With some of the most incredible releases of 2017 like ‘It’, ‘Annabelle: Creation’ and ‘The Evil Within’, Hollywood seems to have finally found its success mantra in the horror genre. Such is the effect that now almost every director wants to take a detour to the imaginary land of the demented, messed up, gruesome and vile murderers and spirits. 

The latest edition to join this journey is director Mickey Keating, who is all set to creep our senses out with his upcoming horror movie ‘Psychopaths’. And the recently released trailer gives us a low-key glimpse of how messed up the movie is going to be.

What happens when multiple serial killers cross paths over one single night? Mere blood and gore doesn’t cut it as what actually ensues is way worse and bloodcurdling than one can imagine. The movie revolves around a serial killer, whose soul descends back to Earth and possesses his followers under the full moon. Ashley Bell who was earlier seen in ‘Carnage Park’ plays Alice, an escaped mental patient who believes that she is living in the glamorous times of the 1950s. 

The other serial killers are Blondie, a seductress who lures men down into her suburban basement; the Midnight Strangler and a masked contract killer. Who survives this bloodbath and how long the night is going to be, weaves the rest of the plot. 


Other stars include James Landry Hébert, Mark Kassen, Angela Trimbur, Larry Fessenden, Jeremy Gardner, Ivana Shein, Helen Rogers, and Sam Zimmerman. This movie brings some of the most amazing brains under one roof and it will be interesting to see whether they manage to live up to the hype that ‘It’ and ‘Annabelle: Creation’ have created for the horror genre. Along with Keating, Jenn Wexler, William Day Frank, Cam McLellan, and Al Lewison; will also produce this film. ‘Psychopaths’ is slated to release in the US on December 1.

When it comes to horror movies, most of them never fail to frighten and entertain us, at the same time. With the onset of filming dreadful plots along with a captivating storyline, the filmmakers have used every opportunity to scare the audience. The essence of fear and what might go wrong is in itself, a thrilling experience. With a reliance on special effects and 3D sound effects, such movies can be extremely potent film forms, tapping into our dreams and invading our nightmares. 

Director David Sandberg is here with his new film ‘Annabelle: Creation’, another terrifying story to the paranormal demon-hosting doll franchise. ‘Annabelle: Creation’ is the third time the doll has been on the silver screen, after a guest appearance in ‘The Conjuring’ (2013) and as the lead in ‘Annabelle’ (2014). In many ways, this film is probably the scariest of the lot.

Back in 1940’s, a doll-maker and his wife, played by Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto living in the demonic bungalow in the suburbs, suffers the loss of their only daughter in a tragic accident. The wife, Esther Mullins is a simpering loner and Samuel Mullins is in a bizarre state of lament. Still grieving the death of their daughter, they both decide to open up their California farmhouse as an orphanage to young girls.

The couple don’t realise that they are giving the demon exactly what it wants, more hosts! Finding the house open to the victims of its terrifying tricks, the doll starts terrorizing the youngsters using jump scares, deafening audio stabs, flickering bulbs and more supernatural events. As it is in most movies, the evil doll preys on the weak first, and this one is no different.

Mr. Mullins seems to be a good man but his wife is more discreet, injurious and bed-ridden. The focus falls on Janice, who finds the damned doll in an abandoned room and feels connected to the dark side. The possessed doll tries to contact her and preys on her. Before they know it, souls are being fought over and crosses are being subverted everywhere. It is revealed later in the film, the same doll was in the hands of their little daughter when she died. Her tormented spirit is hijacked by the demon who uses the same doll to get a foothold on Earth. The movie shows a trail of monstrously awful instances affecting the lives of those girls and their family. 

However dark or primitive the plot may be, viewers are always attracted to the horror genre. And, for the most part, ‘Annabelle: Creation’ keeps the fear alive.

The first trailer for ‘Annabelle Creation’ gave out a few plot lines for us to sink our teeth into. The movie is supposed to trace the origins of the ghoulish doll and how she came to be the dreaded toy that she is.

The second trailer didn’t have much to offer either. A few spooky scenes here and there look nice but nothing aesthetically exciting. The story revolves around a couple, who were doll makers and lost their daughter in a tragedy. Post the demise, Annabelle, the spooky doll creates havoc as the house now serves as a shelter home for orphaned kids and you know what happens when a ghost haunts kids. You’re going to get a creepy film, for sure.

The movie is slated for an August release and we can’t wait to experience a few goosebumps!
