Snapshot: Chloe Moretz as "Carrie"

The first images of the "Carrie" remake are hitting the web and I must admit, I'm starting to get excited for this. Chloe Moretz is stepping into the iconic role of the telekinetic teenager in the upcoming remake of the 1976 classic and she's definitely pulling off the drenched in pig's blood look. The remake, which will be directed by "Boys Don't Cry" director Kimberly Peirce, is described as a modernized, more character driven adaptation of the Stephen King novel.

Snapshot: "Smiley" (2012)

I'm not gonna lie, the killer from the upcoming movie "Smiley" is pretty freaky looking. And the plot sounds pretty decent too: After learning of an urban legend in which a demented serial killer named "Smiley" can be summoned through the Internet, mentally fragile Ashley must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley's next victim. The film, which is being distributed by Fever Productions, will be using a new hybrid approach for distribution.

Snapshot: "Silent Night" (2012)

In what is being described as a loose remake of the 1984 horror classic "Silent Night, Deadly Night", director Steven C. Miller brings us "Silent Night", starring Malcolm McDowell, Jaime King, Donal Logue, and Jamie Kennedy. If you're unfamiliar with the storyline, the film takes place around a small towns annual Santa Parade, which has brought record numbers of the jolly fat man to town.

Snapshot: "Sadako 3D" Truck

Apparently this creepy truck has been spotted around Tokyo to help promote the recent release of the next installment of "The Ring" series, "Sadako 3D". Marketing stunts like this have been making an appearance throughout Japan in a creative approach to help promote the movie. Also used to promote the film? These figures emerging from monitors, walking around and passing out flyers as seen in the video below:

Snapshot: "American Horror Story" and "Glee" Actresses Featured in Horror Photo Shoot

With his new hit TV Show "American Horror Story" gearing up for it's second season, its clear that creator/director Ryan Murphy is a fan of the genre. In a recent spread for Elle Magazine, Murphy teamed up with some of the actresses from both of his hits, "Glee" and "American Horror Story", to recreate scenes from classic horror films. Some of the movies tackled in the photo shoot? "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", "The Birds" and "Carrie" (pictured above).

Snapshot: "House at the End of the Street" (2012)

Fresh off her success in "The Hunger Games," the first photos have surfaced of Jennifer Lawrence starring in the upcoming "House at the End of the Street", a new horror movie scheduled to be released this fall. The film centers around a mother (Elisabeth Shue) and daughter (Jennifer Lawrence) who move in to a new community and find themselves next door to a house with a terrible past.

Snapshot: "Blind Alley" (2012)

In a tiny laundromat hidden down an alleyway, Rosa finds herself trapped, completely isolated and unable to escape the nightmarish situation of being attacked by a serial killer. At the break of dawn and after hours of anguish, immersed in the sadistic game of cat and mouse the killer has subjected her to, the young girl will discover something even more disturbing about the nature of her aggressor. "Blind Alley" is the directorial debut of Antonio Trashorras, co-writer of "The Devil's Backbone", and will be released later this year.

Snapshot: "Childish Games" (2012)

Kids are creepy. Want proof? Read the synopsis for the Spanish film "Childish Games":

Daniel does his best to get rid of him and tries to forget the incident. That same night his friend commits suicide.

Snapshot: "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter"

I'd be more excited about this if I didn't think it was going to further destroy our children's grasp on actual history. Remember that time Eli Roth killed Hitler? That was awesome.

Snapshot: "The Devil Inside" (2012)

The new year brings the next in a long line of found footage films that are coming our way. Director William Brent Bell of "Stay Alive" fame brings us "The Devil Inside," a movie about demonic possession, religion, science and mental illness. The good news: This one actually looks like it might be pretty promising. The movie is about a woman named Isabella who is trying to find out the truth behind an exorcism performed on her mother years ago that resulted in the murder of three people.
