Summit Entertainment is pushing hard to get their fingers into the horror genre. The effort is noted, even though they really don’t have much of a track record yet.
This past year they started off strong taking a big chance on Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer’s Drive Angry 3D, a super fun movie that nobody saw (what’s wrong with you!). Other than that they continually pushed The Darkest Hour to the brink of death and saw yet another Twilight film in theaters.
Next year’s lineup isn’t all that impressive either, although who doesn’t want to see more of Amanda Seyfried in a genre pic? I’m also quite curious to see what All the Boys Love Mandy Lane director Jonathan Levine can pull off with zombies.

The thriller revolves around a young woman named Jill (Seyfried) who returns home from her night shift to find her sister’s bed empty. She’s convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years before has come back to finish the job. But the police do not believe Jill, who knows time is running out. With no one to turn to, she sets off to find her sister and face her abductor once and for all.
The story centers on an existentially tormented zombie who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims and starts a chain reaction that will transform him and his fellow zombies.
The story follows a journalist who moves his family into a house where another family was murdered. After moving in, he uncovers found footage that leads to clues about the murders.
Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to Jacob Black, Bella Swan has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences.
