Upcoming Horror Movies 2012 - Part 6

I was asked if I could find any more horror films coming up this year that a lot of people may not have heard about yet, and the answer is that yes I actually have a list of well over 100 of them. The problem with most is that there just aren't enough solid details for me to post about. But I have decided to add a Part 6 to this list (and there may even be a Part 7) so read on, and hopefully you can find something worth looking forward to this year.


I pity the demon who gets in the way of Danny Trejo. Trejo will play a priest and hopefully we will get to see him kicking some serious demon ass. No specific release date yet.

Synopsis: Action/horror story centered on a secret organization formed by the Catholic Church to counteract the rising number of cases of demonic possessions across the country. The story follows a young godless man who is being recruited into the cloth in order to prepare a new generation with the tools needed to stop the rise of the ultimate evil; Beelzebub.


Not exactly a movie as you might expect, MURDERDROME will actually be a free to watch 5 part roller derby slasher. Currently in post production it should be available to watch on Youtube in the near future. Check the Facebook page for more info.

Synopsis: Cherry Skye just wants to skate, but the vengeful ghost of a killer has plans for her soul. Trapped between the wrath of love scorned and supernatural evil, Skye races towards The MurderDrome at breakneck speed. When she gets there there's no guarantees anyone is coming out alive.

Welcome to The MurderDrome, it's not a game anymore..


This film written by Oren Peli (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) is due in theatres in only a couple of months but strangely I haven't seen the slightest hint of a trailer or even a poster. Directed by Brad Parker, CHERNOBYL DIARIES is set for a May 25th release according to its IMDb page or May 28th according to Bloody Disgusting. Let's just say the end of May then.

Synopsis: A group of friends become stranded in an eerie and desolate city. Years before in the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, nature has begun to reclaim everything. As the sun sets on this radioactive ghost town, inhuman cries cut through the night air. It seems they are not alone.


Tobe Hooper's DJINN will be more of a supernatural horror than a thriller or slasher according to German producer Danielle Tully, "It is a tale told with a lot of respect for the Emirati traditions and it will stay with you for a long time.
There are apparently already plans for a prequel and sequel as well. Filming should end in April with a release date to follow.

Synopsis: The film is set in 2015 and follows the story of Khaled and Salama, a couple who return home from America to discover their apartment in a luxury high-rise, built on the site of the deserted fishing village, is also home to malevolent beings.


DAMNATION will be a full CG animated sequel to RESIDENT EVIL: DEGENERATION. Once again Leon Kennedy will be the main character and the story is said to revolve around bio-organic weapons used in the European war zone. A 3D release is expected sometime this year.


Eduardo Sanchez's LOVELY MOLLY has been getting some positive feedback from festival screenings and is set for a limited theatrical release starting May 18th.

Synopsis: Newlyweds Molly (Gretchen Lodge) and Tim (Johnny Lewis) move into Molly’s deceased father’s house in the countryside. An ex-addict with a deeply troubled past, Molly is strong in her new life of recovery. Unexplained disturbances in the night unnerve the couple, and when her husband goes away for business, Molly is
left in a house that holds many painful memories. Her isolation is soon shattered by a mali­cious presence that unleashes a physical and mental assault. As she struggles to regain footing in her simple existence, Molly’s grip on reality begins to waver. Her erratic behav­iour is a warning sign to her friends and family, whose interventions drive her further into solitary torment and spur a deep, dark infidelity within her.  Lovely Molly explores the thin line between demonic possession and psychosis.  It starts off as a simple horror film about things that go bump in the night but slowly turns into a thriller about the evil power that exists inside one troubled young woman.


I wasn't a huge fan of OUTPOST but it did have a great premise, and who doesn't like Nazi / zombie / ghost films? Hopefully this sequel will take the ideas from the first movie and improve on them. No official release date yet, but keep a look out for it. A third movie is also in the works titled OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ.

Synopsis: The year is 1945, the closing stages of WW2, and a German scientist by the name of Klausener is working on a frightening new technology that has the power to create an immortal Nazi army. Flash forward to present day, and a NATO task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path. But this is no ordinary foe. Only Helena, a gutsy investigator on the trail of the notorious war-criminal Klausener, accepts the reality of that they are facing a battalion of Nazi Storm-Troopers, a veritable zombie army on the march. With the help of Wallace, a man who's been chasing Nazi secrets for years, the two of them team up with a Special Forces Unit to venture deep behind enemy lines. Their mission to fight their way back to the source of this evil army and prevent the seemingly inevitable rise of the 4th Reich.


So far I have been less than impressed with every Syfy film I've seen. Here comes another one about a future world where vampires outnumber humans and a synthetic blood has been created so that they can live 'peacefully' side by side. As if that's going to work. I'm guessing that the filmmakers watched DAYBREAKERS before coming up with this one. Expect it to premiere on Syfy this year.

Synopsis: Bucharest, Romania. The not-too-distant future, but an entirely different city. The human population is dwindling. The vampire population, meanwhile, is exploding. Having emerged from the shadows a decade earlier, vampires now walk openly amongst the human population, as a precarious peace exists between the two. A peace made possible by the introduction of a synthetic blood substitute, dispensed by the Romanian government, making traditional vampire feeding, and preying on humans, no longer necessary. But even so, it's not a peace that everyone is entirely comfortable with...


Apparently a vampire thriller which takes place at a Gothic boarding school, THE MOTH DIARIES looks like it might be aimed more at the TWILIGHT crowd than horror fans. Although after watching the trailer it does in a way remind me a little of GINGER SNAPS as well, so maybe it won't be too bad. IMDb has a release date set for April 20th.

Synopsis: Rebecca is suspicious of Ernessa, the new arrival at her boarding school. But is Rebecca just jealous of Ernessa's bond with Lucie, or does the new girl truly possess a dark secret?


"A fresh twist on the zombie genre" I sure am tired of hearing that line to describe every single zombie movie ever. Still this Canadian horror / comedy (going by the trailer it's a lot more comedy than horror) may just live up to that description after all. Release date on IMDb just says 2012 at the moment so keep an eye out.
