Linda Cardellini, Patricia Velasquez and Raymond Cruz are the stars of The Curse of La Llorona, a new Michael Chaves directed horror / mystery.

Set in 1970s Los Angeles, a social worker and her small children are drawn into a frightening supernatural realm after they ignore the warnings of a troubled mother…

In the name of my mission to watch more scary movies this year, I’m drawn to this one because of Cardellini. I mean, did you see how well she sold the moment that happens soon after 1:00 into this trailer? Wonderful actress!

Sean Patrick Thomas, Tony Amendola and Madeleine McGraw also star.

The Curse of La Llorona Release Dates: April 19, 2019 (US); Mar 3rd 2019 (UK)…

Directed by Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer and based on the bestselling Stephen King Novel of the same name, Jason Clarke, John Lithgow and Amy Seimetz are the stars of new horror / thriller Pet Sematary.

The story centres around the Creed family who move into a new rural home, and soon learn of the ‘Pet Semetary’ located close by. After their cat is killed by a truck, said cat is laid to rest in the mysterious pet cemetery. The Creeds don’t fully know it yet but the cemetery is not quite as it seems. In fact, it soon proves to them that sometimes, dead is better…

I’ll start by saying that I already love the ‘…sometimes, dead is better‘ line. So spooky!

Having definitely not read the book, I’m drawn in by how clever this story seems to be. I’m interested in the thrills and maybe a few scares… but really, mostly the thrills, because I’m scared.

Naomi Frenette, Maria Herrera, Obssa Ahmed, Bailey Thain, Sonia Maria Chirila, Jeté Laurence and Hugo Lavoie also star.

Pet Sematary Release Dates: April 5th, 2019 (US & UK)…

THE PRODIGY (2019): New Trailer From Taylor Schilling, Brittany Allen, Colm Feore, Jackson Robert Scott…

In new horror / thriller The Prodigy, Taylor Schilling is a mother worried about her son’s increasingly disturbing behaviour and suspects the supernatural…

Directed by Nicholas McCarthy; other key cast includes Brittany Allen, Colm Feore, Jackson Robert Scott, Olunike Adeliyi…

This trailer is certainly more intriguing than the teaser trailer released a little earlier.

I’m curious about which thriller will be better, The Prodigy or The Hole In The Ground (2019). You know, since both seem quite similar. Both movies seem to be calling for an exorcist. The Prodigy especially reminds me of a movie I never should have seen at age 12… The Omen (1976).

The Prodigy Release Dates: February 8th, 2019 (US), March 15th, 2019 (UK)…

THE WEDDING GUEST (2018): New Trailer From Dev Patel, Radhika Apte, Jim Sarbh…

Written / directed by Michael Winterbottom, The Wedding Guest stars Dev Patel as a mysterious British Muslim on a journey across Pakistan and India…

I’ve never really pictured Patel as a bad guy macho kind of character. Having seen this trailer, I’m now convinced he’d probably do quite well in such roles. One might even go as far as to say… ‘Patel for James Bond!’

Did I take that too far? I took it too far didn’t I? Either way, I still wouldn’t object. Especially when you look at how many people objected about Daniel Craig. Now consider the giant success of his run as Bond.

Anyway, I digress. Patel is playing a different kind of character than I’m used to expecting from him and that’s why I’m drawn to this; along with all the mystery too, of course.

Harish Khanna, Nish Nathwani, Meherbaan Singh and Sidhu Manpreet also star.

The Wedding Guest Release Dates: March 1st, 2019 (US)…

Witten / directed by  Sarah Daggar-Nickson, Olivia Wilde is the star of A Vigilante, a new drama / thriller about a woman once in an abusive marriage, that now helps victims escape their domestic abusers.

It’s been a while since I saw Wilde in a movie, let alone one where she gets to kick behinds that are deserving of a good kicking.

So far in this trailer, Wilde’s fighting abilities look rather convincing; always a quality I always appreciate

Tonye Patano, Betsy Aidem, Kyle Catlett, Judy Marte, Cheryse Dyllan, Jim Ford and David Shumbris also star.

A Vigilante Release Dates: March 29th, 2019 (US)…

EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE (2019): New Trailer From Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Angela Sarafyan, John Malkovich…

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019), Zac Efron, Lily Collins

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is a new Joe Berlinger directed biography / crime / thriller that chronicles the crimes of American serial killer Ted Bundy.

Starring Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Angela Sarafyan and John Malkovich, the story of Extremely Wicked is told from the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer…

I want to believe I’ll be more impressed with the finished film than I currently am with the music choice and edit of this trailer, not that it’s terrible.

I also haven’t yet figured out whether releasing this trailer around the same time as the Netflix Ted Bundy documentary is a good idea. Either way, I want Efron to do well in this role.

Kaya Scodelario, Haley Joel Osment, Jeffrey Donovan and Jim Parsons also star.

JOHN WICK – CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM (2019): New Trailer From Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Jason Mantzoukas…

Directed by Chad Stahelski, Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry and Jason Mantzoukas are among the stars of John Wick – Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

This time the Super-assassin has has become the target of hit men and women everywhere, thanks to the $14 million price tag on his head. That sort of thing tends to happen when you’re on the run because you killed a member of the international assassin’s guild…

I can’t wait to see just how fun Stahelski can make this instalment because I’m expecting lots of badass fight sequences, as well as bullets flying around at all times.

There’s also the cinematography; I love the colours, the moment on the horse, Halle Berry’s entrance and how well her character teams up with Wick towards the end.

Anjelica Huston, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Robin Lord Taylor and Lance Reddick also star.

Co-written and directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, in new action / drama / thriller, Woman At War, Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir is Halla, a woman on a risky mission to prevent the local aluminium industry from disfiguring her beloved country, Iceland.

Unexpectedly, Halla’s situation changes with the arrival in her life of a small orphan girl…

I’m in because this is a better than average trailer and I simply want to know more about Halla as well as find out how she came to the decision to risk everything.

The action / thriller element looks like fun and I cant wait to see all the ways she manages to avoid getting caught.

Woman At War Release Dates: March 1st, 2019 (US)…
