GALLERY: The Creepiest Movie Posters Ever

When going in to see a scary movie, you usually know what you're getting, not just because you've seen the trailer or heard the buzz, but because the posters advertising the movie are completely terrifying.

The poster for the upcoming horror flick "The Last Exorcism Part II" is one of the freakiest, and the sight of Ashley Bell bending backwards (really, really backwards) inspired us to go searching for other posters that are just as creepy as the movies. We've learned that if you want to make someone have nightmares before they even step into the theater, be sure to include eerie children, missing body parts or creepy crawlies on the poster.

We recommend keeping a light on as you flip through these photos.

The Year in Facial Hair: Our 12 Favorite 'Staches and Beards of 2012

The year 2012, or, as we like to call it, the beard 2012, is drawing to a close. Awards nominations are being handed out left and right, top 10 lists being written and superlative statements being made all around. It felt only right that we here at NextMovie draw up our own list, one honoring the best examples what we feel was 2012's most ubiquitous accessory: facial hair.

So here, it is, our salute to the greatest flavor savers, 'staches, soul patches and beards that graced the screen this year, broken down by month.

Liam Neeson in "The Grey"

We're not sure whether the beard makes the eyes or vice versa, but can we just say that we shiver in awe of their combined effect? Neeson's character in the film may have a way with killing wolves, but we're only human — and we are slayed. Get More »

The Post-Potter Roles of Our Favorite Wizards and Witches

Our seven years at Hogwarts are long over and done with, and we're seriously missing our favorite wizards and witches. Sure, the books and movies will always be there, but it's just not the same as having new installments to look forward to, is it? Where's the thrill now that Voldemort is gone and the Boy Who Lived, well, lived? Where are we supposed to get our magical fix now?

Luckily, the actors and actresses behind the wands and invisibility cloaks are still going strong, and we can have fun watching them on screens big and small. We saw Daniel Radcliffe drag us back into the world of the eerie in "The Woman in Black" earlier this year and now Draco Malfoy Tom Felton is getting his creep on with "The Apparition."

In their honor, we've decided to check in on all the Gryffindors, Slytherins, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs to see just what they're up to, post-Potter. Get More »

Happy Birthday, Daniel Radcliffe!

It seems like only yesterday we met Daniel Radcliffe as the titular boy wizard in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Now, more than 10 years later, the "Harry Potter" series has ended and Radcliffe is on his way to a successful post-Potter movie career. Yes, "the boy who lived" has become a man, and he turns 23 today.

While getting the chance to play the movie version of one of the most famous characters of the 21st century would be enough to make anyone happy, Radcliffe's not letting one iconic role define his career. After "Potter" wrapped, he went on to star in the spooky "The Woman In Black" and take the stage as the lead role in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" on Broadway. Up next, Radcliffe will star in the horror flick "Horns" and the indie rom-com "The F Word."

We're psyched to see what new movie magic Radcliffe turns out as a mature leading man. Happy birthday, Daniel! And here's hoping you celebrate with all the butterbeer and chocolate frogs you want.

Daniel Radcliffe 'Might' Return for 'Woman in Black' Sequel

Daniel Radcliffe might truly be the boy who lived. After the final "Potter" flick wrapped, the future of its titular character remained unclear: would Radcliffe ever be more than Potter? And now, it seems, the answer is yes.

Radcliffe did a bang up job (if you ask us) as a young lawyer in slightly over his head in the 2012 hit thriller, "The Woman in Black." Now, just before the original releases on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK, there are rumblings of a sequel—and Radcliffe's possible return to the budding franchise.

Hammer's CEO, Simon Oakes, announced, "We are working on not a sequel but a continuation of 'The Woman in Black.'" (OK, so we thought a sequel was a continuation of the story, but we stand corrected.) "Susan Hill wrote an outline story about what happened 40 years later to the woman in 'The Woman in Black' and the house and all of that. It's completely different. It's completely different."

'The Woman in Black' Becomes a Frightening Franchise with 'The Angels of Death'

Woman in Black
CBS Films

Are you ready to take a trip back to Eel Marsh Manor? The sequel to "The Woman in Black" won't feature Daniel Radcliffe as a dapper Edwardian era lawyer, but its title alone is enough to send a shiver down our spines.

"Angels of Death" is currently in development over at the House of Hammer with help from author Susan Hill, who wrote the novel upon which "The Women in Black" is based.

"Angels of Death" is an original work by Hill that takes place 40 years after Radcliffe's trip to the haunted manor, when a couple find themselves in thrall to the house's rather unwelcoming resident. Story editor Jon Croker will adapt Hill's story into a screenplay. Get More »

Daniel Radcliffe Reveals the Dark Side of His 'Harry Potter' Fame

When "Harry Potter" and"The Woman in Black" star Daniel Radcliffe first revealed last summer that he had recently overcome a drinking problem, many fans shrugged it off as just another "boys will be boys" moment. You know, kids, growing up, it happens.

But now Radcliffe is speaking out in detail about his troubles with alcohol -- and it turns out that the problem was much more serious than previously believed, including nightly blackout binges and even showing up drunk on the set of "Harry Potter."

Forget Lord Voldemort, Radcliffe's biggest enemy was himself. Get More »

'Chronicle' Writes Success Story At Box Office

Chronicle
20th Century Fox

Unheralded sci-fi/horror flick "Chronicle" wrote its own success story at the box office this weekend as the story about a group of high school students who suddenly develop superpowers topped the box office with a surprisingly strong $22 million debut according to Hollywood.com.

That was just enough to edge out fellow newcomer "The Woman in Black," which also took in a greater than expected $21 million thanks to a young audience made up mostly of female fans, no doubt due to the presence of "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe.

So how did returning films such as Liam Neeson's "The Grey" and Kate Beckinsale's vampire epic "Underworld: Awakening" fare? For the full box office report, including figures for the pro-whale weepie "Big Miracle," head to Hollywood.com.

GALLERY: Daniel Radcliffe Outgrows His Wizard's Robes

Once upon a time, Daniel Radcliffe was an unknown kid picked to play an iconic wizard. Ten years later, the "Harry Potter" franchise ended, and we all cried a little. Or a lot.

But Radcliffe now has a chance to put his wizarding ways behind him, and he's taking advantage, starring as a ghost-hunting lawyer in "The Woman in Black," a thriller based on the 1983 Susan Hill novel.

The boy has become a man, indeed. Radcliffe isn't the little kid who seemed swallowed up by his glasses in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" anymore. Take a look at the grown-up star this handsome lad has become.
