The first trailer we saw for Hammer's "The Woman in Black" was stately, quiet, and unnerving. This new UK trailer for the ghostly flick amps up the action and shows how young lawyer Arthur Kipps ("Harry Potter's" Daniel Radcliffe) races to uncover the dark secrets of one English village and a mysterious woman who keeps appearing in the mansion he has come to work in.
It features not just one creepy dead girl ghost, but three — and lots of atmospheric, jumpy chills. You'll be able to meet the woman in black on February 3, 2012 — but in the meantime, see what other horrific things await you in this week's Horror Bites after the jump.
Our friends across the pond will finally be able to revel in Tom Six's gruesome sequel to last year's intestinal favorite, "The Human Centipede."
Part two — which hits US theaters this Friday — was banned in Britain due to "sexual violence" and other atrocities. UK censors have approved the movie's release after making 32 cuts, which amounted to removing 2 minutes 37 seconds of footage. Some of the gory details that were axed include the "graphic sight of a man's teeth being removed with a hammer; graphic sight of lips being stapled to naked buttocks." In a statement, Eureka — the movie's overseas distributor — said they feel " … that the storyline has not been compromised and the level of horror has been sustained." UK horror fans will have to let us know if they agree with that or not.

Hardcore "Fright Night" fans have had mixed reactions since the new trailer for the vampire remake debuted earlier this year. The horror comedy's original cast has some big shoes to fill – especially where the roles of fanged fiend Jerry Dandridge and vampire killer extraordinaire Peter Vincent are concerned. DreamWorks' new international trailer has arrived and gives us a better look at some of our principal players – namely Charlie's (Anton Yelchin) idol and partner in staking, the new Peter Vincent ("Dr. Who's" David Tennant) who is now a Las Vegas magician instead of a horror TV host.
The trailer also delivers more on the horror front – opening like a snarky comedy before it digs into the dark stuff. Colin Farrell seems to fit the bill as the sexy and scary vamp that retaliates against Charlie for being a nosy neighbor. When the high schooler and his horror-obsessed pal Evil Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) start to spy on the undead activity happening next door, Jerry goes after Charlie's family (Toni Collette), his girlfriend (Imogen Poots), and eventually the teenager himself.
Check out the trailer and let us know if you think the remake can stand up to the original. Take a bite out of the rest of this week's horror news after the jump.

Friday the 13th in 2012 is going to be a memorable year for the horror spoof about a group of friends who hit the woods for some R&R, but end up fighting for their lives (snarky style).

It's shaping up to be quite a week for both trailers and horror movie news. Focusing on the latter first, rumors centering on an "Evil Dead" remake have been building to a fever pitch all week long, and now, we've got some concrete news.
Deadline reports that, yes, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are indeed remaking "Evil Dead" — again — with Fede Alvarez directing and, get this, "Juno" writer Diablo Cody doing revisions on the latest draft. Pretty cool team! Still no word on whether or not Campbell is playing Ash again, though we all know there's only one king we hail to, baby. We'll keep you posted on the remake as more news comes in.
