It's very rare to see Horror and Westerns cross over, but Bone Tomahawk looks to combine them with great effect.

 

Featuring a very respectable cast including Kurt Russell (The Thing, Death Proof), Patrick Wilson (Insidious, The Conjuring) and Matthew Fox (Lost, World War Z), Bone Tomahawk features a group of men heading out into the Wild West to save some captives from cannibalistic natives. Think True Grit meets Cannibal Holocaust

 

It’s had positive reviews since its release last month, so Bone Tomahawk is probably worth checking out!

 

Release date: Out now in limited theatres

Badoet

It's not often we get an Indonesian film on this list! Badoet makes use of something that should be funny but is more than often scary: clowns.

 

Creepy kids, torture and jump scares make up this somewhat artsy trailer for Badoet. Following closely behind the recent Eli Roth-produced Clown, Badoet has a tough act to follow, but we’ll have to wait and judge for ourselves when it gets an international release date.

 

Release date: TBA

 

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The Jane Austen classic novel Pride and Prejudice was severely lacking in zombies, but thankfully in 2009, Seth Grahame-Smith decided to rectify this mistake and released the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

 

Now we get a film adaptation, and it looks to be as mental as you would expect it to be.

 

A grand combination of period romantic drama and over-the-top zombie horror, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is certainly going to break new territory in an otherwise saturated genre.

 

Release date: 12th February 2016 (UK)

 

Freaks of Nature

It seems that ever since Shaun of the Dead revitalised the horror-comedy genre, America has been attempting to one-up the UK. From Zombieland to the currently showing Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, it feels like there are just constant, formulaic attempts at creating the next cult-classic horror-comedy. 

 

Freaks of Nature is the next in line, aiming to up the stakes by adding vampires and aliens to the mix. Unfortunately, it looks like this film might share the same problems as all the others; it’s that shallow one-upmanship that seems to have poisoned American comedies in recent years, turning them into toilet humour-level parodies of themselves. But I may be talking out of my arse.

 

At least Zombieland had some grounding to it, Freaks of Nature looks like it will be painfully stereotypical and unfunny, but there’s only one way of knowing.

 

Release date: TBA (2016?)
