Technically, the new Marvel movie, Venom, isn’t a horror movie, but its twisted plot deserves a spot on October’s scary release list. This is the latest superhero film, starring Tom Hardy as Venom and supporting roles by Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed (just to name a few). The movie has had cautious hype behind it, so we’ll see what director Ruben Fleischer has in store for this Spider-Man villain. Venom is in theaters Friday, October 5. Go see it to find out for yourself!
LARS alumnus, Robert Thomas Pedroza (ASRA 2013), worked as a rigging electrician on the film.
He has an impressive list of credits including Ozark, The Walking Dead, Insatiable, Good Girls and other productions.

It’s back (again). The latest film in this long-standing franchise actually does away with the previous sequels with a blink of an eye and links itself to John Carpenter’s original 1978 horror classic. It brings back Jamie Lee Curtis as her character, Laurie Strode, encounters her final showdown with the crazed killer, Michael Myers. This is the eleventh Halloween movie in the franchise and is directed by David Gordon Green, yes, the same director of Pineapple Express and Eastbound & Down. Don’t worry horror film fans, David Gordon Green got his blessing from John Carpenter. Halloween movie hits theaters Friday, October 19.

The disturbing new horror film from director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name; A Bigger Splash) follows a world-renowned dance company led by a fearsome director and her timid troupe. The trailer leaves you uneasy and wanting to watch this reboot of Dario Argento’s 70s mystery/horror movie. Word is that the ballet scenes match the intensity and mood of the sinister secrets the school hides. Suspiria hits theaters Friday, October 26.
