Naturally I hope that all of these films will have a UK release date (at least for a DVD release) before the end of the year. But right now in January 2014 there appears to be no release date for the UK planned (according to IMDB at least). So, we begin with movies just with no UK release date (and in some cases no US release date either btw) and then the next list is of movies with no release date at all (just the clear intention that they be released in 2014).
ANTICIPATED MOVIES WITHOUT A UK RELEASE DATE
[REC] 4: Apocalypse (2014)
Director: Jaume Balagueró
Stars: Manuela Velasco, Críspulo Cabezas, Mariano Venancio, Héctor Colomé
Spanish Release Date: 10/10/14
The young reporter Ángela is rescued from the building and taken to an oil tanker to be examined. However, it is unbeknown to the soldiers that she carries the seed of the mysterious demonic virus.
Jaume Balaguero co-directed the first two "REC" films. He also recently made the creepy and effective Spanish horror film "Sleep Tight”. Having let the other REC director, Paco Plaza, do what he wanted with "REC 3: Genesis", Jaume Balaguero is back to resolve the cliffhanger from REC 2 in this final instalment.
Europa Report (2013)
Director: Sebastián Cordero
Stars: Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Christian Camargo, Embeth Davidtz
German DVD Premiere: 22/10/13
An international crew of astronauts undertakes a privately funded mission to search for life on Jupiter's fourth largest moon. (90 mins.)
This is an interesting concept and I've heard a few recommendations, but so far there seems to be no sign that this is actually getting a DVD release in the UK, never mind a cinema release. This was out in America way back in August and the latest release date on IMDB is for the German DVD release and even that's back in October last year. I suppose being the OTHER movie set in space asides from "Gravity" has made it seem like a particularly hum-drum project, but I'm still keen to check it out all the same.
Director: Alexandre Aja
Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Heather Graham, Kelli Garner
Dutch Release Date: 06/11/14
In the aftermath of his girlfriend's mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.
Alexandre Aja wrote the awesome remake of "Maniac", wrote and directed the remarkable remake of "The Hills Have Eyes" and has also been critically acclaimed for writing/directing a number of other horror movies which I have as yet to check out. This book adaptation starring Daniel Radcliffe about a man who finds himself growing horns seems very intriguing.

ANTICIPATED MOVIES WITH NO RELEASE DATE
ABCs of Death 2 (2014)
Director: Rodney Ascher, Kristina Buozyte
Stars: Martina García, Ian Virgo, Andy Nyman, C. Ernst Harth
I haven't seen the first ABCs of Death horror anthology movie yet, but I've heard good things and I'm looking forward to it.

All Cheerleaders Die (2013)
Director: Lucky McKee, Chris Sivertson
Stars: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper
A rebel girl signs up a group of cheerleaders to help her take down the captain of their high school football team, but a supernatural turn of events thrusts the girls into a different battle.
I'm a big fan of Lucky McKee and his previous film "The Woman" (a collaboration with Jack Ketchum) was his best yet. I'm really looking forward to this.
The Host 2 (2014)
Director: Park Myeong-Chan
Joon-Ho Bong is still on board as a producer for this sequel to his 2006 movie "The Host". The short clip released so far looks pretty awesome.
