Good day, avengers of all things closet-bound and feared. Hollywood kicked off the Halloween season with the Conjuring prequel Annabelle and audiences were ready to watch it. The supernatural thriller brought in an estimated $37.2 million over the weekend, taking second place to David Fincher’s mystery thriller Gone Girl. How about we get a mash-up between the two where a doll gets possessed by the spirit of Ben Affleck and turns a young innocent family into Oscar winners?

In smaller news, Robbie Pickering’s long-delayed comedy horror Kitchen Sink has been pushed back from its January 9, 2015, release date and will now hit theaters on September 4, 2015. The similarly long-delayed Mockingbird, from director Bryan Bertino, now has an official release date of October 7 for VOD outlets, with a Blu-ray/DVD release coming exclusively to Walmart (of all places) on October 21st. And for parody fans, Blacula and Scream, Blacula, Scream are coming to Blu-ray for the first time through Shout Factory.

And now, a Bigfoot project.

First Look at Bigfoot in Woodsy Horror Exists
Indie cinema is weird. This year we’ve already seen Bobcat Goldthwait’s Willow Creek, a Bigfoot tale that harked entirely too much back to The Blair Witch Project, and now we’re waiting on Blair Witch co-director Eduardo Sanchez’s Bigfoot horror Exists. We now have our first look at the cryptozoological beast’s back, as well as a clip from the film that may or may not show audiences the film’s inciting incident. The plot here isn’t complicated: five friends head out into Texan wilderness and get into an accident, one that puts them in the crosshairs of the legendary beast, who wants to murder them. Check out the clip below.



The first rule of summer vacation is "Don’t hit a fucking Bigfoot with your car," but I guess these guys never got that memo. It’s hard to get entirely excited for Exists, as it looks like basically any "group of people heads to a place and interrupts evil" flick that’s clogged cinema over the last decade or so. But the still seen above is encouraging, as it proves these guys are comfortable with sticking to practical special effects. A CGI Bigfoot would be embarrassing for all involved. Starring Chris Osborn, Dora Madison Burge, Roger Edwards, Samuel Davis, Denise Williamson and Brian Steele, Exists will hit VOD and a limited theatrical run starting October 24th. Call up your best abominable snowman friends and check it out.
