In the spirit of Netflix show Stranger Things, here comes the horror movie Summer of ’84, directed by the trio behind Turbo Kid; Anouk Whissell, Francois Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell.

Think Cargo meets Here Alone, and you’ll get something like the French zombie movie The Night Eats the World.

After falling asleep in a back room of his ex-girlfriend’s apartment, Sam wakes up to discover that the world – or at least Paris – has been overrun by a zombified populace. Barricading himself inside the building, he faces life as the sole survivor of the plague, gathering the supplies he can as the ghouls stagger and slaver outside. He can sustain his body, but can he sustain his mind as the days alone in a world gone to hell stretch out endlessly before him?



Horror/Thriller What Keeps You Alive is a Hitchcockian movie with a LGBT twist, written and directed by Colin Minihan (It Stains the Sands Red).

True love can’t always be trusted. This discomforting life lesson is learned in the most pulverizing way when Jules (Brittany Allen) finds herself barely escaping death at the hands of her wife Jackie (Hannah Emily Anderson), deep in the country on the eve of their one-year wedding anniversary. Shocked, heartbroken and terrified, she tries to piece together the whys and whats of her situation while doing everything she can to simply stay alive.

The writer of I Saw the Devil is back with The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion, which should deliver sci-fi thrills, surprising twists and a climactic bloodbath that will leave you gasping.

A high school student with amnesia tries to uncover what has happened to her. All leading her into deeper troubles ultimately revealing a darkness she could not have imagined.

I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
