This summer hasn’t really been a great one for horror, but thankfully there seem to be some more promising entries on the horizon as fall rolls around. One on our radar is The Hallow, a British-Irish supernatural thriller that got some good reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The story follows a British conservationist (Joseph Mawle) who’s sent to rural Ireland, wife (Bojana Novakovic) and infant son in tow, to survey a forest for development. Locals warn him that the woods are teeming with malevolent spirits and supernatural creatures, and he realizes too late that they’re probably right. Watch The Hallow trailer after the jump.

One intriguing film that’s currently making the rounds at TIFF is the grief drama Burning Man, starring Matthew Goode. Written and directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, the film centers around Tom (Goode), an English chef in Australia who falls into self-destructive behavior following a crushing personal tragedy. Trying to save Tom from himself are his 8-year-old son Oscar (Jack Heanly) and a rotating slate of beautiful ladies — because if you look like Goode and are an incredible cook, women will flock to you even if you’re being kind of a dick. Bojana Novakovic, Rachel Griffiths, Essie Davies, and Kerry Fox also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Universal Pictures have released the first teaser trailer for Devil, which is being dubbed as coming “From The Mind of M Night Shyamalan.” The first released under “The Night Chronicles” banner, Devil is directed by Quarantine helmers the Dowdle Bros from a story by M. Night Shyamalan and script by Brian Nelson. The story reported involves a group of people who are trapped in an elevator, and one of them is the devil. We’ve also been told that the security guard is trying to convince the policeman to get them out of the elevator, and that he is the chosen one to save the people. The trailer uses the wording “One of these five people, is not, who they appear to be.” The film stars Chris Messina, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend and Caroline Dhavernas.
Watch the teaser trailer after the jump. I really love the up-side-down arial transitions. The trailer seems to give away way too much about the story, as it seems like the type of movie which depends upon the surprises.
