Paranormal Activity 4

So, you want to see a horror movie. But with the influx of new films slated for this fall, where do you begin? Drowning in trailers? Sick of reading reviews?

We’ve broken down each of this fall’s new horror movies into its primal elements so you can quickly and effectively find your perfect match.

House at the End of the Street

Release Date: Sept. 21

Rating: PG-13

You should see it if… You think blonde Jennifer Lawrence is far superior to brunette Jennifer Lawrence (but let’s face it, you’re basically obsessed with her always, especially when she’s wearing a white tank top). You prefer the “I’m stuck in an abandoned cabin in the woods with a ghost” sub-genre of horror, and you’re okay with never living in rural America again. You are a Twitter fiend and love titles that are basically excuses to use a hashtag with a reflexive acronym (#HATES).

SinisterSinister

Release Date: Oct. 5

Rating: R

You should see it if… You regularly put your own ambition ahead of the safety of your family and you always forget that curiosity killed the cat. You have a borderline unhealthy fascination with pagan symbols and supernatural serial killers. (Who’s Bagul? How could you ask such a question!) You think Ethan Hawke deserved an Oscar for Gattaca.

V/H/S

Release Date: Oct. 5

Rating: R

You should see it if… You think VHS tapes are way scarier than DVDs. Found footage horror films are totally your jam; you and your friends rewatch The Blair Project every Halloween. You suffer from ADD and therefore support stories that are told in brief fragments.

Paranormal Activity 4

Release Date: Oct. 19

Rating: Not Yet Rated

You should see it if… You think every movie deserves a sequel… and threequel… fourquel. You think children are terrifying. You think being safe in your home is overrated and you’re positive there is something wrong with your new neighbors. Are your lights flickering even though you’re sure you paid the electric bill? First, leave your house immediately. Second, watch Paranormal Activity 4 and learn things.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
