Editorial: The Change in the Horror Industry

Adam Green
The horror industry is changing, it's going through a change of age. Wes Craven, John Carpenter and other noteworthy directors are getting up there in age and sadly wont be around in the next 30 years. So who's next ? who will take the torch? well, we have already seen the change. Directors like Ti West (The House of The Devil, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever) Adam Green (Hatchet series, Frozen, Holliston) and Adam Wingard (V/H/S, S-V/H/S, Your Next) along with Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, Holliston) have already started there career in the horror industry and those are the people who show great potential to be the next great thing in horror. We have also seen the great Blumhosue Production rise up, being a powerful force since Paramount acquired the Paranormal Activity rights. With hits like the Paranormal Activity series, Insidious and Sinister all being a huge money maker as well as receiving acclaim from the horror industry. Jason Blum and his production company Blumhouse productions are driving force in this industry.
The next couple years though I expect we will see a movie break out like Paranormal Activity did to the public (Horror fans knew about way before Paramount picked it up) and the director of that particular movie break out as Oren Peli and Jason Blum did.
Fede Alvarez 
And i think this has already happened with director Fede Alvarez with his Evil Dead remake. With the announcement of Evil Dead II Fede Alvarez could rise up higher then Jason in terms of his films recognition. Hell, I'd give this guy The Exorcist rights cause i bet he would do one fucked up remake of it that would be welcomed by the horror junkies all over the world. Its going to be an interesting change in the industry that were gonna being seeing in the next 10 to 15 years.
