The Clovehitch Killer promises a chilling drama / mystery / horror that centres around a picture-perfect family. One that’s shattered when the work of a serial killer hits too close to home.

Directed by Duncan Skiles; key cast includes Charlie Plummer, Dylan McDermott, Samantha Mathis…

I want to see this because the premise is compelling. The absolute nightmare of realising that your own parent is a monster. Almost too hideous a reality to comprehend.

The Clovehitch Killer Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US)…

In new crime / drama / mystery The Mule, Clint Eastwood is a  90-year-old horticulturist and WWII veteran who gets caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine for a Mexican drug cartel.

Also directed by Clint Eastwood, additional key cast includes Bradley Cooper, Michael Peña, Laurence Fishburne…

Firstly, well done trailer maker! Second, following the success of their last pairing for American Sniper (2014), it’s really great to see Eastwood and Cooper working together again.

Seeing how vulnerable Eastwood’s character appears to be, it’s clear that this movie will likely be emotionally taxing – though I’m hoping also quite worth it.

Taissa Farmiga, Clifton Collins Jr., Manny Montana, Dianne Wiest, Alison Eastwood and Dianne Wiest also star.

The Mule Release Dates: December 14th, 2018 (US)

I’m quite sure that I won’t have time for this new show but I’m sharing this trailer anyway because it’s a 9 minute teaser that gets more and more interesting, leading to at least one truly wow moment.

Created by Jeff Rake and Matthew Fernandez, Manifest is a new NBC drama / mystery series starring J.R. Ramirez, Josh Dallas, Jack Messina, Melissa Roxburgh to name just a few.

Following a turbulent, but routine flight, the passengers and crew of flight MA828 discover that the world has changed in a most unexpected way, and soon a deeper mystery unfolds…

Wasn’t that compelling?

Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, Alfredo Narciso and Julienne Hanzelka Kim also star.

Manifest series Premiere: September 24th, 2018 (US)

In new M. Night Shyamalan horror / mystery, Glass, James McAvoy is Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty personalities and Bruce Willis plays the security guard who uses his supernatural abilities  to track Crumb down…

The cast and the hope of seeing a well executed story that features key characters from Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016) come together… that’s why I’m in.

Fauna Hodel was given away by her teenage birth mother to a black restroom attendant in a Nevada casino in 1949. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel…

Directed by Pattie Jenkins (Wonder Woman (2017); and based on true events, I Am The Night is a drama / mystery that stars Chris PineIndia EisleyGolden Brooks, Jefferson Mays, Dylan Smith… 

This one isn’t a movie but a six part TV mini-series  I just had to feature it because it looks pretty good and if I’m completely honest, I really find the sound  and music in this trailer to be quite magnificent. I like it so much I’d actually appreciate a three minute long version to listen to more than 3 times.

If I had to guess, I’d say that that spine tingling instrument that comes in near the beginning and definitely at the very end is a xylophone.

Jay Paulson, Shoniqua Shandai, Quintyne Lawrence, Justin Cornwell, Alexander Kanellakos and Hayley Marie Norman also star.

Set in the summer of 1947, Dr Faraday, a respectable country doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall where his mother once worked. Little does Faraday know that he’s about to find out just how closely and terrifyingly the family of his new patient’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

From director Lenny Abrahamson, The Little Stranger is based on the novel by Lucinda Coxon and Sarah Waters. Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter star…

The mystery intrigues me. Yet it’s mainly Poulter and his character that have me most interested.

A world-renowned dance company is the setting and the story is about a darkness that swirls at its centre. One that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist.

Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Mia Goth star while Luca Guadagnino directs…

The slight Black Swan (2010) vibes help; however it’s really Swinton and my curiosity for seeing Johnson doing well in a film outside of the Fifty Shades of Grey movies; these are  my reasons for watching.

Lutz Ebersdorf, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven and Elena Fokina also star.

Suspiria Release Dates: November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick and Linda Cardellini are the stars of Paul Feig’s latest, a Crime / Mystery / Thriller, A Simple Favor. 

Kendrick is a a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend’s sudden disappearance…

I only really know Feig for his hit comedy films. Namely Bridesmaids (2011) and  Spy (2015). May his transition to the non-comedy category also prove fruitful.

I  can’t say that I’m a fan of the various moments of ‘dialogue minus imagery’ in this trailer, yet I am intrigued and I like Lively and Kendrick enough to take a chance.

Henry Golding, Rupert Friend, Eric Johnson and Sarah Baker also star.

A Simple Favor Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US); September 21st, 2018 (UK)…
