Get Scared ‘Half to Death’ This October

This morning we told you that Universal and Sony Pictures shifted Leigh Whannel’s Insidious: Chapter 4 out of its October date and into 2018. There’s good news attached to that announcement, though, with word that Universal’s Half to Death will take its spot.

So, yes, you will have a chance to be scared half to death this Halloween season, when the film hits theaters everywhere on October 13, 2017.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones‘ Christopher Landon directs the film that sounds like a horror version of Groundhog Day.

‘Half to Death’ follows a girl who must relive the same day over and over again until she figures out who is trying to kill her and why.

Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, and Rachel Matthew star alongside Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard.

Christopher Landon is directing from a script he co-penned with Scott Lobdell. Landon, who penned Disturbia and several Paranormal Activity sequels, also directed Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paramount’s Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.

Filming took place in New Orleans.

    Welp, this film is gonna be bad.

    • Shinobi

      That one was kinda bad, but on the other hand ‘Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse’ was awesome.

  • Cody

    Wonder how well this one will do. Before I Fall was pretty similar and that flopped earlier this year.

    • pablitonizer

      You mean “Before I wake” ?? I really liked that one, but yeah it flopped hard

      • Cody

        No I meant Before I Fall. I’ve seen Before I Wake as well though. Before I Fall is about a teenage girl who keeps living the same day over and over either dying or someone else dying until she figures out how to end it cycle for good.

          Oh, must have missed that one, I’ll try to find it. Do u recommend it?

          • Cody

            For what it was I didn’t mind it. And critics seemed to think it was decent but they didn’t praise it. Keep in mind though it’s not a horror movie but a drama.

  • I love time travel movies, I’m sure I’ll watch this one.
    By the way, can you suggest me GOOD films like this, I’ve watched The Butterfly Effect, Source Code, Looper, 12 Monkeys, Donnie Darko, Groundhog Day, Back to the Future, The Jacket, Interstellar, Project Almanac, About Time.

    Sounds more slasher than paranormal, if so I’m down!!

  • Alanmac

    Ground Hog Day horror! Moving Insidious if fine by me. That series sucks.

  • Gambit

    I immediately thought of Triangle, if it’s half as good as that film I’ll be happy!
