Our Top 30 TBA Films of 2016!

There always seems to be an endless amount of new Horror & Genre movies on the horizon that for one reason or another, take forever to see the light of day; they get delayed, shifted around, moved back and forth, or just flat-out shelved. Whatever the cause of their delay, they are all labeled as "Coming Soon."

As lovers of all things Horror, we're dying to see the new movies that we're teased with, and we know that they're coming "soon," but without an actual distribution plan in place, all we can do is sit and wait. And hope.

The movies below are the ones that we're most curious about that don't have actual Release Dates in place. Some of them, we've been waiting for what seems like forever; while others, we barely know anything about. All of them have promise though, and we'll be in line when they finally do see proper release.

For now, they are nothing more than movies living in To Be Announced limbo. 

Our TBA criteria:
  • Festival showings do not count as Release Dates.
  • "The Fall" or "2nd Quarter of 2016" are not Release Dates either. They're guesstimates.
  • Until a movie is released in the U.S., it’s still TBA to us. Because that’s where we live.
  • If a a movie that is scheduled or rumored to be released in 2016 doesn't have a poster, we're not including them on our list. Know why? Because release a simple little placeholder poster until your "good ones" are ready, movie people! That’s why.

May's Blu-ray of the Month: The Witch (2016)

"New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. 'The Witch' is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil."

The Witch currently sits at 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, and at a healthy 7.1 on IMDB, which is to say that it was a hit with both critic and audiences alike. It certainly is one of our favorite movies of the year so far, and it's one that we can't wait to revisit when it hits Blu-ray. We need some more Black Phillip in our lives!

This release doesn't look as if it's packed with a ton of Bonus Features, but that commentary and that mini-documentary should be fun. Plus, we're hoping that it comes with subtitles, so that we can finally understand everything that was said in the movie.

So check out our full review and/or pre-order it below, and get ready for some witchy goodness!



Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Robert Eggers
  • The Witch: A Primal Folklore
  • Salem Panel Q&A
  • Design Gallery

ICYMI: Our April Reviews!

Of the 12 movies that we reviewed this month, two of them ended up being A+'s; two of them were A's; and one was an A-. Considering that only two movies, The Girl in the Photographs and Deadly Weekend fell into below average territory, I'd say it was a pretty good movie-watching month for us.

On a fun note, three of the movies we reviewed this month, two of them had “10” in the title,  and two of them had “Midnight” in the title. Coincidence? I think not. Then again, four of them have "The" in the title, so maybe I'm just jumping to conclusions.

So here they are listed in graded order, from “best” to “worst.” If you haven't read through them yet, feel free to do so now, and enjoy!
