If you’re a fan of found footage horror, there are two movies in the genre coming soon that look satisfyingly creepy and set in unique locations. First up is Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, the seventh film in the Paranormal Activity franchise but a reboot that has nothing to do with the previous continuity. In Next of Kin, a documentary crew follows their friend Margot (Emily Bader), who travels to Amish country to meet her biological family for the first time but soon discovers that something sinister is going on in the community that may have something to do with what happened to her mother. William Eubank, who directed the surprisingly fun Underwater from last year, is directing with PA veteran Christopher Landon writing the script. The movie is a Paramount+ exclusive and arrives on the service on October 29th, just in time for Halloween.
Shortly after Halloween on November 5th, The Deep House arrives on Epix and on digital platforms. Directed by the team of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who previously directed Leatherface and Kandisha, The Deep House stars Camille Rowe and James Jagger as a social media influencer couple who set out to explore a house that has been perfectly preserved at the bottom of a remote lake. While inside the house, a sinister force is revealed and the couple needs to escape before they run out of air or are dragged into the depths by the evil within. It’s a cool premise that adds the nerve-wracking claustrophobia of scuba diving into a traditional haunted house scenario.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
