Scott Derrickson’s Sinister was clearly one of the standout horror films of 2012, and those anxiously awaiting a follow-up were probably elated when Sony’s Screen Gems decided to move his upcoming Beware the Night forward to 2014, giving it a release over the 4th of July weekend – not a weekend where we normally get to see horror or genre movies.
While talking to Eric Bana for his upcoming war drama Lone Survivor, ShockTillYouDrop.com talked with him about the supernatural thriller and working with Derrickson.
A&E offered an all-too-brief tease for Bates Motel season 2 a few weeks ago, but now we have a pair of extended teasers that actually have some meat on them. In this case, we’re actually getting some footage featuring Norman and Norma Bates.

Names we know. Protagonists we love. Some of them final girls. Others tortured protagonists or men asked to step up against horrific scenarios. We recognize the faces. Maybe we can quote them. The important thing is: They’re memorable.
The examples I used here are just some incredibly well-known genre characters. They’re some of my favorites. Horror is populated with a bunch more. But when you look back at the last 20 years who do you think of (beyond Sidney, who stands out)? It’s kind of a problem, because I have a hard time thinking of anyone.
