Dimension Films is struggling to get their feet under ‘em and have full intentions of running full steam ahead. Last year they got Scream 4 in theaters, along with Apollo 18. But they didn’t hit the jackpot with either, and have changed the faces behind the curtain multiple times. The decision-making is looking more and more like a game of pin the tail on the donkey (only with scripts) with the future remaining fuzzy.
When I prepped this article, Dimension had slated a few horror films for 2012, now, everything is labeled TBD (to be determined). There’s a ton of great stuff in the pipeline, but who knows if any of it will come into fruition.

Billed as a “dark romantic fairy tale,” “Livid” turns on three young men who decide to rob an elderly woman’s house in the Irish heathlands…. It’s young Lucy’s first day as a trainee in-house caregiver. She visits Mrs Jessel, an old woman who lies in cerebral coma, by herself, in her large desolate house. Learning by accident that Mrs Jessel, a former dance teacher of repute, supposedly possesses a treasure somewhere in the house, Lucy and friends William and Ben decide to search the house in the hope of finding it. At night, they get into the house, which reveals itself to be increasingly peculiar. Their hunt for Mrs Jessel’s treasure leads them into a horrifying supernatural series of events that will change Lucy forever…
There’s something in the water… again. And this time no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the best summer attraction, The Big Wet Water Park.
My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry directing and writing duo, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, reunite to bring us Michael Myers in 3-D. The movie has yet to go behind cameras, so odds are this will shift to a 2013 date.
‘The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes’ showcases the events after the time of the original ‘The Amityville Horror’ book and movie through found footage dating back to 1976. An ambitious female television news intern, on the verge of breaking the most famous haunted house case in the world, leads a team of journalists, clergymen and paranormal researchers into an investigation of the bizarre events that will come to be known as The Amityville Horror … only to unwittingly open a door to the unreal that she may never be able to close.
