Most Anticipated Horror Films Of 2015

Taking up residence on the twenty-fifth floor, Laing discovers a world of complex loyalties, and also strikes up a relationship with Royal’s devoted aide Charlotte (Sienna Miller). After Laing befriends Richard Wilder (Luke Evans), a documentary filmmaker relegated to the second floor who is determined to provoke the class injustices inherent in the high-rise, a dangerous social situation develops and the high-rise eventually fragments into violent tribes.

Hundreds of years old, the vampires are finding that beyond sunlight catastrophes, hitting the main artery, and not being able to get a sense of their wardrobe without a reflection-modern society has them struggling with the mundane like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts.

31

How many of these are aimed at or starring teenagers? Some sound fairly interesting but I'm too old to enjoy teen romps anymore.

IMO, most of these sound horrible. I agree, most sound like they are aimed at teenagers. Maybe mainstream horror really is dead, and for those that are mainstream releases, .

None of these sound too interesting, though I have read good things about 'What We Do In The Shadows'.
'31', not excited about it but will give it a watch. Zombie is usually terrible, always mildly interesting.

It Follows, The Final Girls, and Green Inferno are easily my most anticipated.

I've also very much been looking forward to Cooties and Cub.

Tales Of Halloween could be fun, and I'm hoping Muck will deliver some guilty pleasure slasher goods.

Also hoping Creep and On Air (Radio Silence) will be released this year, as I'm eager to see both again.

I'm sure why some of you are so convinced that these are mostly "teeny bopper" horror. But hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

"It Follows" had some early buzz ("scariest movie of 2015"). We shall see about the others.
I've been kind of curious about The Strangers 2 ever since they announced the sequel back in 2009, but I guess that one won't ever happen. And while I'm at it, are they still doing the Trollhunter remake?

The one that I was anticipating until it was pushed to June 2016 was The Conjuring 2
