It is being reported that Blumhouse is unsurprisingly moving forward on a sequel to last years Halloween film. Collider has revealed that writer Scott Teams is being brought on to write the script for Michael Myers next "adventure". No timetable for release or who is sitting in the director's chair this time out just yet, or even who from the cast would return. What say you ghouls? DO we need another Halloween?
A new Christmas-themed scarefest titled I Trapped the Devil will see limited theatrical release and release OnDemand same day on April 26th.

A trailer for the horror mash-up Broken Ghost debuted online. The film releases OnDemand next Tuesday.
Desperate for a new life, Imogen and her family move to Montana in an attempt to escape a secretive past from the big city.
