2016 just got a little busier as Universal has set an October 7th release date for "Monster High", a live action adaptation of the Mattel toy line about the teenage children of famous monsters. The series has already been produced in animated, straight-to-video form. In addition, Focus today staked a claim to that first week in January horror/thriller slot by dating the Japan-set "The Forest" on January 8th. No cast or director has been set for either film.
