Typically the horror genre avoids the summer months, but leading into fall, studios begin to unload their darker fare. Usually known as “dump months”, genre films have stolen that identity and given late August/early September strength in numbers — we still see movies when school starts (most of us need something to forget about the looming year of homework and bus rides).
This year is one of the strongest when it comes to “dump month” as there are literally several straight weeks where we’ll be getting a brand spanking new genre film – one week even has two!
Looking through our coming soon database, I started to ponder which I was personally most excited for and thought I’d take it a step further and propose a challenge to you: Of the following films, if you could ONLY SEE ONE, which would you choose? Vote inside. Starting August 5 we’ll see Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Final Destination 5, Fright Night 3D, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Shark Night 3D, Apollo 18, Contagion and Straw Dogs, respectively. It all comes to an end on September 16. That’s nearly two straight months of horror (fear boner!)
Explain your pick below.
