April 2013 looks to be the month for us horror fans..

Seriously. There is a good number of horror films [that actually look good; not like that "Cockney's vs Zombies" crap, that's playing right in the theater where I work right now- even if that's for the film festival..] that are coming out in April, and there are two that I'm actually looking forward to. Back on January 5th 2013, I mentioned how Carrie was being pushed til October making us [I say 'us', because I'm sure I'm not the only one who's excited] have to wait a little longer than expected. However, there is TWO horror movies, that have actually been pushed forward, rather than back. Below, I mention which ones, and my thoughts.

NUMBER 1; The Evil Dead [remake]

 

So I won't lie; when I first heard this was being remade, I got upset.. I knew for a fact that Hollywood has become obsessed with remaking almost every movie that I hold dear [forgive my abrupt rant] and ruining it dearly. and now my 2nd favorite horror film [first being 'A Nightmare On Elm Street-original] is being remade. HOWEVER, after the red band trailer came out, which can be found here, I changed my mind drastically. I had some of the same feelings watching the trailer, as I did watching the original film.. [Also, keeping a close eye on Bruce Campbell's tweets helped as well.] This film has been pushed forward a week now being released to theaters on April 5th, 2013.

on Twitter, he actually claimed he's proud of the remake, & fully approves of the end result. fuck yes!

NUMBER 2; The Lords Of Salem

 
With an official trailer for this film which just came out the other day, [you can see it in all it's glory, here] I figured that this film needs to be mentioned. I first mentioned this movie on December 20th, 2012; and talked about how stoked I was for it because it's [finally] an original Rob Zombie flick. [probably the first 'original' from him since 'The Devil's Rejects'- which is quite superb, if I may say.] It features a lot of actors/actress I've never even heard of; [except the always wonderful, Sheri-Moon Zombie, as seen in the poster above.] It was meant to be released on April 26th, 2013; however, many people demanded sooner [hopefully this won't ruin the quality of the film, due to being rushed.] and now it's actual release date is April 19th, 2013 [also a week earlier than before] There was also a collection of posters made for this film, rather than just the one with Sheri-Moon Zombie on the front, and those can be seen below;
