Good day, magnifiers of all this maudlin. I wish I could say I was writing this from Austin while getting ready to spend the day watching great movies with the city's finest at SXSW, but alas I’ve been sitting here in the same chair and wearing the same outfit for like a week now, and I think my socks are actually becoming one with my feet. Perhaps I’ll get some sun/exercise/food/soap once I’m done with this week’s edition of The Fear Monger.

Mark Bomback, one of the screenwriters behind The Wolverine and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has been hired by TWC-Dimension to handle writing duties on their feature adaptation of Ira Levin’s Broadway thriller Veronica’s Room. That’s potentially good news, but not nearly as horrifying as Jersey Shore’s Jenni "JWOWW" Farley executive producing Paul Tarnopol’s "three years too late" horror comedy Jersey Shore Massacre, due out in June. But save most of your disgust for Tom Six’s upcoming The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) , which debuted its first still with EW recently. Thankfully it’s only of actors Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey, and not the 500-person centipede that Six has been touting for years.

Oculus Pulls Freaky New Trailer and Clip From Behind the Mirror
Though there’s a small chance Mike Flanagan’s upcoming supernatural horror Oculus will be disappointing, I have huge hopes for this flick, and this trailer is exactly what I’m looking for in jump-scare-heavy thrillers. The preview does a great job of letting viewers into the trippy story itself without seeming to sacrifice any of the major twists and turns that arise. Any film that features someone eating a light bulb instead of the preferred apple gets my vote of approval. Check out the film’s recently released poster below.

In Oculus siblings Kaylie (Karen Gillan) and Tim Russell (Brenton Thwaites) are teenagers when their mother (Katee Sackhoff) brings a haunted mirror into the home that plays a large part in both parents’ murders, which Tim is accused of. (Rory Cochrane plays the father.) Ten years later, Tim is released and Kaylie is determined to prove that her brother was a patsy to something much more evil and inhuman. The mirror appears to do quite a number on everyone’s minds, as time fluidly floats back and forth between the past and the present. It’s a device that’s paired with the "it’s only a dream" trope in the clip seen below.
