Some interesting stuff coming in 2014…

Angelina-Jolie-as-Maleficent

I don't generally announce forthcoming horror films unless they have some connection to witchcraft, paganism or the occult, and of course I also prefer arthouse and foreign films to mainstream Hollywood stuff, so my initial forecast for 2014 is that there isn't that much coming down the pipeline just yet.
