October is probably my favorite month because it gives me an excuse to watch a lot of horror films to get in the mood for Halloween. (Not that I need that much of an excuse.) It also means there’s a slew of new horror films ready to be released in theaters. If you’re wondering which will be worth checking out this month and which will just be more of the same cheap scares, keep reading for a breakdown of all the horror coming your way in October.

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Danny Moltrasi]

David Fincher is a personal favourite of mine. Fight Club is, in my opinion, one of the most important film of the 90s…and in cinema history (and thus, was fairly ignored at time of release), which automatically makes every project he does of a fair amount of interest to me. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was loved by the Oscars, and has pretty much completed Fincher moving from having his first film in the limelight (Aliens 3), to moving away from it (Se7en, The Game, Fight Club), and then back to the mainstream (Benjamin Button). Very little in the year 2010 is more mainstream than Facebook, and that is exactly what Fincher is tackling in his latest movie, The Social Network. The trailer itself does not tell anything new about the story, which itself is a fairly interesting story about a company that everyone in the Western world knows. The subject matter should secure it as a box office success, but will it get the same love that Benjamin Button got from the award givers…? I doubt it, but it does not seem to be too bad, I certainly hope that Fincher can make something with a bit more depth than maybe another director may have done. Hopefully Fincher can make it something more than just a story about Facebook, but we will just have to wait and see. To be fair to Fincher, he has given himself an uphill battle here, at least from cinema-snobs. Social Networks are bound to be a matter of hate for them, and having Justin Timberlake in an important role is just asking for a backlash! But, I am sure Fincher can do something pretty interesting with The Social Network.
