There was a lot of skepticism going into A&E’s Bates Motel. “Who wants to see a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock‘s classic? Why do we need to see Norman Bates’ origin story? How can this sustain itself for five or more seasons?” The show ultimately proved to be a success with viewers. However, after season one, it’s struggled to prove those skeptics wrong.
Bates Motel returns this March. Watch the Bates Motel season 4 teaser trailer.

When The Conjuring originally opened in 2013, I couldn’t help but feel a little guilty placing it on my top ten of the year. After all, horror fans can be a desperate lot – we see something passable in an ocean of junk and latch on to it like it’s the second coming. As much as I loved James Wan‘s creepy, classy, and perfectly assembled haunted house movie, I was worried it wasn’t going to stand the test of time. I was worried that repeat viewings would reveal it to be something interesting but lackluster, a well-executed but empty experience.
Boy, was I wrong. Several years later, the first trailer for The Conjuring 2 is here and I have enough viewings of the first movie under my belt to know that this is the sequel to one of the best horror movies of the millennium. The second cinematic adventure of real-life paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren already has a place on my list of most anticipated movies of 2016.

Director James Wan has posted a new batch of photos from the set of his sequel to The Conjuring and now we can’t help but wish this movie was titled An American Exorcist Couple in London.
Dumb jokes aside, these images do give us a tiny taste of the upcoming sequel, which is actually called The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist and is set in England in the mid-1970s. Originally shared on Wan’s Twitter and Instagram pages, these photos show off the cast in period costume, Marylebone Station transported a few decades into the past, and even a tease of the film’s Christmastime setting.
You can check out the Conjuring 2 photos for yourself after the jump.

No horror film in recent memory has demanded a sequel more than The Conjuring. James Wan‘s 2013 haunted house extravaganza remains one of the smartest, spookiest, and classiest mainstream genre films of the past few years, with husband-and-wife paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren being the most exciting horror protagonists to emerge in quite some time. So yeah, of course you’ll want to take a look at a new photo taken on the set of The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, especially since it features Patrick Wilson rocking some killer sideburns.

There’s nothing quite like a death in the family to bring the living members of the family back together. Or at least that seems to be a running theme at the movies this year, between Are You Here, This Is Where I Leave You, and now the new The Judge trailer.
Robert Downey Jr. leads the drama as hotshot attorney Hank Palmer, who returns to his childhood home after the death of his mother. When he gets home, he discovers that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), an esteemed judge, has been accused of murder. Watch The Judge trailer after the jump.
