Just in time for Halloween season, we're going to rank the Top 7 Scary Movies Made In Shreveport and Bossier!
Yes, a lot of movies and TV shows have been filmed in our area, but looking at the percentage of those productions that have leaned into the horror/suspense/thriller world appears to outweigh other genres.
Just look at the TV series list...two of the biggest ever are True Blood and Salem.
But for now, just in time for the Halloween season, we're going to focus on the movie side of the entertainment world. There have been almost 20 mid-to-big-budget movies filmed locally. But we're going to focus on just the best right now.
HUGE WARNING: There's NSFW language, content, and concepts in the trailers ahead...Let's get rolling:
This one probably features the biggest star on our list, with Sandra Bullock staring in this one. But the conversation can probably center around whether this counts as a "horror" movie. It's definitely a supernatural thriller, but no real "monster" creature.
Ah, what the hell, this is a suspense thriller that fully counts for this list, and definitely should make your watch list for the Halloween season.
Just by watching the trailer, you can see parts of the Shreveport area all over this one.
It has a decent pedigree, with Producers from the updated Texas Chainsaw series, and the Hostel series, and the director of 2 Final Destination movies, and a cast of up-and-comers. The movie also made a decent number at the box office. But...
...and maybe this just me, but the shark thing doesn't work here. Unless they're in a tornado.
So we had Sandra Bullock on the list, and I thought she might be the biggest star on here, but Charlize Theron is pretty big too. But she's not the only star here...Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), and Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie) are also in this one.
The movie is based on a novel written by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the insanely popular Gone Girl.
This isn't a "horror" movie in the paint-by-numbers sense, but it's fast-paced, and gets between your ears.
What Louisiana movie list wouldn't be complete without a Nicolas Cage movie?
Which is why I'm stretching this movie into the horror realm. It does feature witchcraft, but as a movie, it probably shares more with A Knight's Tale than Friday the 13th.
This movie is a remake of the 1978 cult classic, which was so graphic that it was banned in multiple countries. This version, not that impact-full.
Like most horror movies, it didn't get positive reviews from critics, and didn't do too well at the box office. But honestly, it did far worse than expected at the box office, not even cracking the $1 million mark.
But don't let that take away from the fact that it's still a creepy-as-hell thriller that's perfect for this time of year.
Look, when you tell me there's a new Texas Chainsaw movie, I'm down. But I already know some things about it:
1. There's going to be bad reviews from critics
2. There's going to be a ton of blood
3. There's probably going to be some nudity
If you're like me, and know these things will come together in a Texas Chainsaw movie, then you are good to go with this one! Especially with the cast they put together, with Alexandra Daddario, Scott Eastwood, and Bill Moseley, who was in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 back in 1986.
You knew that a movie based on a Stephen King story, directed by the man who would bring The Walking Dead to TV, staring some of the strongest names on screen 10 years ago, was going to make this list.
The Mist might be the most successful movie on this list, and one of the most successful ever filmed in our area.
