The last decent Egyptian mummy film was 1999’s The Mummy, and that was anything but scary. The Pyramid could be the first genuine mummy horror in a very long time. A team of archaeologists uncover a new pyramid in the Egyptian desert, but from the offset things start to go less than well.
Despite what seem like fairly obvious signs that maybe this should be a no-go area, the brave team head into the pyramid to uncover its ancient secrets. We’ll have to wait and see whether The Pyramid can bring back some life to the genre, or whether it should stay buried in the desert.

[Rec] 4: Apocalypse
The fourth and final instalment in the Spanish zombie series, [REC] 4: Apocalypse looks set to end things in a blaze of glory.
Featuring the return of Manuela Velasco as Ángela Vidal from the first and second films, [REC] 4 changes location to an oil tanker refitted as a quarantine zone.
Zombie infections and tight spaces don’t mix very well, so Ángela finds herself once again fighting for her life against the infected. [REC] 3: Genesis had a less favourable reception than the first two films, so [REC] 4 has some work to do in order to end the series on a high note.

If you go down to the woods today, the last thing you expect is to run into a very mean and aggressive Sasquatch. Unfortunately for a group of young Texan friends, that’s exactly what happens.
A man in an ape suit is a ballsy basis for a horror film, but with director Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) at the helm, this might be something to watch out for. Hopefully it isn’t too blurry.

We’ve seen many attempts at creating the next Leatherface or Jason Voorhees over the years, and most have been forgettable. Charlie’s Farm is the latest attempt, this time from Australia. After the success of Wolf Creek, it seems that the Outback is prime territory for psychotic serial killers.
At first glance there definitely seems to be a strong influence from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, so let’s hope Charlie’s Farm brings something fresh to the table rather than simply being a relocation of a rehashed story.
