The longtime fan of my movie previews will recall that, each January, I induct a new film into the Shitty January Horror Movie Hall of Fame. This prestigious list includes Devil’s Due (2014), A Haunted House (2013), The Devil Inside (2012), The Rite (2011), Daybreakers (2010), The Unborn and The Uninvited (2009), One Missed Call (2008), The Hitcher (2007), Hostel (2006), White Noise and Hide and Seek (2005) and Win a Date With Tad Hamilton (2004). The 2015 inductee, TWIB2: AOD, replaces Daniel Radcliffe with a group of schoolchildren and their teacher, who must survive the Eel Marsh House’s haunt.
