V/H/S: VIRAL and Alexandre Aja’s THE PYRAMID Both Due Later This Year

     July 8, 2014

After Deliver Us From Evil failed to live up to Sinister’s standards, news that we’ve got two new horror movies with some serious potential heading our way later this year couldn’t have popped up at a better time.  With The Conjuring spin-off, Annabelle, in the mix, October is looking pretty good for Halloween-appropriate new releases.  After Annabelle drops on the 3rd, we’ve got both Ouija and Paranormal Activity 5 on the 24th and then ABCs of Death 2 gets a limited release on the 31st.

But that’s not all.  The latest installment of the V/H/S series, V/H/S: Viral, just took a spot on the October line-up as well.  Find out when and where you’ll be able to catch it after the jump.

And now we’ve also got The Pyramid, which will enjoy a similar set-up in the month after.  If you’re unaware of this one, it might be because the title was once Site 146, but even then, there’s been so little talk about the project lately, it easily could have fallen off your radar.  However, now it’s back because, according to Box Office Mojo, 20th Century Fox has just set the Alexandre Aja-produced film for a December 5, 2014 release.  The Pyramid marks Aja’s longtime collaborator, Grégory Levasseur’s directorial debut and stars Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare, and James Buckley.

Here’s the film’s synopsis via Silvatar Media:

“A team of U.S. archaeologists unearths an ancient pyramid buried deep beneath the Egyptian desert. As they search the pyramid’s depths, they become hopelessly lost in its dark and endless catacombs. Searching for a way out, they become desperate to seek daylight again. They come to realize they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.”
