March 2016: A Preview of the Month in Horror!

Whether it be movies or TV shows, as the year wears on, the releases are getting bigger and better on all fronts.

Below, we've listed 10 or so of the best Movies & TV Shows that are seeing Theatrical, Blu-ray & DVD, VOD, or TV releases this March; they're the biggest and (potentially) best of them, and at the very least, they are the ones that we're most excited to check out. And yes, we've listed them in order of our anticipation.

"Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on Superman, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It's up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis."

Just as Deadpool ruled the Box Office in February, so will Batman v Superman in March... or at least the last week of March, because it doesn't come out until the 25th. so it will rule some of March, and all of April.

The point is, this movie is going to be HUGE. HUUUUUGGGGEEEE.

"A woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) discovers the horrifying truth about the outside world while living in an underground shelter with two men (John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr.)."

An unofficial sequel to Cloverfield, that doesn't seem to have any sort of monsters in it at all? J.J. Abrams has done a great job at keeping a tight lid on this movie, and we have a feeling that when it's released, it's going to surprise a lot of people.

We can't wait to see just how much.

"A squad of unsuspecting cops goes through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building."

Not only is Baskin one of the few Horror movies to come out of Turkey (at least on a large scale like this), but if advanced reviews are to be believed, then it's also one of the most revolting, uncomfortably disturbing movies to come along this year.

Say no more. We're there.

"A family lives an idyllic existence abroad until a tragic accident takes the life of their young son. The inconsolable mother learns of an ancient ritual that will bring him back to say a final goodbye. She travels to an ancient temple, where a door serves as a mysterious portal between two worlds. But when she disobeys a sacred warning to never open that door, she upsets the balance between life and death."

Produced by Alexandre Aja, this is one Hollywood Horror movie that actually has us excited. Not just because it's Rated-R, or because it has a solid cast going for it, but because it looks like it's going to be scary. Let's hope that it's the effective slow-burn that advanced reviews has claimed it is.

 "A blind lawyer, with his other senses superhumanly enhanced, fights crime as a costumed superhero"

We loved Season 1 of Daredevil, and with the addition of John Berenthal as The Punisher, not to mention Elektra and Bullseye to the mix, we're fully expecting Season 2 to rise to another level, and kick our asses in the best of ways.

Man, the 18th can not get here fast enough.

"Bates Motel" is a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film "Psycho," and gives a portrayal of how Norman Bates' (Freddie Highmore) psyche unravels through his teenage years."

Another TV show returning for a new season is A&E's Bates Motel. Four seasons in, and we're finally to the point in the show where Norman Bates is about to go full ham, and kill everyone around him, including his mother. Maybe. Hopefully.

This is a consistently solid show, and we can't wait to see where it takes us by the end of the year.

"After discovering his origins, Damien Thorn must cope with life as the Anti-Christ."

Looking to provide a compelling 1-2 Supernatural punch with Bates Motel, is the premiere of A&E's newest show, Damien. And yes, it's that Damien.

In the show, Damien Thorne is all grown up, and he's realized that he's The Antichrist, which we're sure will lead to all kinds of crazy moments of angst, murder, and creepy shit.

We'll be watching this one closely, and hoping that it's worth a spot on our DVR's.
"A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young college co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old! Pieces is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded horror fan."

Pieces is a perfect slice of 80's Horror; it's got that creepy 80's Slasher flick vibe, it's bloody, it's exploitative, it makes absolutely no sense, the dubbing and dialogue are laughable ("Hey, that's my Kung Fu Professor!"), the acting isn't much better, and it's got the usual "What in the hell was that?!?" ending that was so prevalent in that era, s basically, it's awesome.

Feel free to read our review of Pieces (the movie, not the Blu-ray) below for our full breakdown. Oh, and then add this one to your shopping carts on Amazon.... although it already looks like it's back-ordered.
There are plenty of solid titles hitting VOD in March as well. To highlight just a few...

  • Ava's Possessions looks like it might be fun. 
  • Emelie looks downright chilling. 
  • The cast of Road Games is enough to make us want to see it, as Frederic Pierrot is one of the best French actors that we've ever seen on-screen, and Barbara Crampton is a classic. The trailer was cool too.
  • Directed by the guy who gave us Fritt Vilt, The Wave is a Norwegian disaster movie that we're genuinely excited for. 
  • Excess Flesh and They Look Like People are two Indie efforts that we've got our eyes on. 
  • Mockingjay is what it is. 
  • And we've already chimed in on Baskin (above.)
