The newest addition to horror television is WGN America’s Salem. Set during the witch trials of the 1600s, Salem premiered a long-form trailer at the Television Critics Association conference. After watching the footage, I am all-in. This is not going to be a mushy modern-day witch show with ties to the Salem Witch Trials; this is not a romance that is aided by a little nose-wiggle and a sprinkle of fairy dust. This is looks brutal.

Imagine waking up in a deep pit full of decaying, dead corpses, but with no recollection of who you are, how you got there or what the hell transpired. That’s John’s (Sharlto Copley) horrific situation in the creepy thriller, Open Grave. To make matters worse, he stumbles across a group of strangers suffering from a similar amnesia. As their memories slowly return and events unfold, they realize the truth is far more frightening than anything they could have conceived. Among the group is Brown Eyes, played by Asian actress Josie Ho. Ho spoke to me about her mysterious character and ramping up the intensity for this film.

In Joshua Waller’s Raze, superstar stuntwoman Zoe Bell goes in front of the camera again to play Sabrina, a prisoner in an underground fight club made up entirely of captive women. Overseen by a maniacal pair (the marvelously-cast Doug Jones and Sherilyn Fenn), Sabrina has to fight her fellow captives to the death or watch her loved ones be killed instead. Waller and Bell’s film had its Windy City premiere at the Chicago International Film Festival and the pair sat down to talk about their grindhouse flick, the balance of extreme violence within it, and the importance of a little movie called Kill Bill.

A few weeks ago, we ran a story about a little girl's journal in which she described her new best friend, Lisa. While the little girl didn't know any better, you and I knew she was talking about a ghost. It was a chilling story that was too good (or too scary) to be true, so I wanted to look for the truth. And I found it.
