Two geneticists combine human and animal DNA to create an entirely new being, which grows from deformity into a beautiful female. It bonds with its scientist-parents, Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, but then things turn deadly. From the director of Cube, this is produced by Guillermo del Toro.
Release Date: TBA 2010
Starring: Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chaneac, David Hewlett
Director: Vincenzo Natali

A Nightmare On Elm Street

The most anticipated/dreaded horror movie of the year. Platinum Dunes, the producers of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday The 13th remakes, have got rid of Robert Englund, but replaced him with serious acting talent in Jackie Earle Haley. The movie is going for scares over camp, a good move, but the trailer suggested a lack of imagination in the dream sequences. The make-up is likely to prove controversial as the new look Freddy looks a little too much like a real life burns victim.

Release Date: 30 April 2010
Starring: Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara
Director: Samuel Bayer

The Crazies

In this remake of George Romero’s 1973 chiller, a plane crash spills a biological weapon into the water supply of a small Kansas town, causing the inhabitants to turn murderously insane. Imagine a small town version of 28 Days Later. Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell are capable actors, but can the director of Sahara do horror?
Release Date: 26 February 2010
Starring: Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell
Director: Breck Eisner

Best Horror Movies 2010

It’s time to look at the potentially great horror movies of 2010. The line-up features the usual mix of sequels (Resident Evil: Afterlife), remakes (A Nightmare On Elm Street), sequels to remakes (Friday The 13th: Part 2), and original fare (Daybreakers). Japanese horror and torture porn have gone. Big name old school slashers are back in business, as are cheesy 80’s remakes, and 3-D. But overall the horror movie genre is still in flux, waiting for the next big trend.
