OMG! I really really want to see this one. I have the Jean Cocteau version(which is amazing) now I really want to see this remake. I'm especially happy that it's a French film because the story(which is also my favorite) is French. Can't wait. I just hope they'll show it in my city

Ok Harpies....They're from Greek mythology. Mostly they are seen as creatures who tortured souls when they were on their way to Tartarus. They were agents of punishment. So they were violent and cruel.
I'd like to point out that they're not the same thing as Sirens although they do look similar.
Anyway, I was watching an episode of "Paranormal Witness" and one couple(the husband rather) said he was being tormented by a spirit that resembled something like a harpy. It disguised itself as a little girl but in his nightmares it was like a bird creature.
I'd also like to take a moment and vent on that episode: Why in the hell would you welcome a spirit in your house?! Like I always say, just because it tells you it's a little girl looking for friends doesn't mean it's telling the truth! Demons and bad spirits lie. Also when your loved one says that they are scared and don't want that thing in the house, you should be considerate enough to listen. End rant.

The hellhound is pretty self-explanatory. It is a dog that guards the world of the dead. One of the more recognizable of these creatures is probably Cerberus, the three headed dog that guards the gates to hell. Sometimes it goes by different names like Black Shuck, Barghest, and Dip.
There have been reports that the hellhound has been seen. There are reports that they're been seen in Suffolk and Essex. One story is that a devil dog burst through a church, killed a man and a boy, then caused a church tower to collapse. He left scorch marks on his way out. There are other stories where if you see these creatures you will die within the year.
Here's a clip from Lost Tapes:

I thought this was an interesting movie to watch. So it's about a family who moves into a new house and the mother is told about Feng Shui and how window panes are used to keep evil spirits away. But when she takes photographs of others, they end up dead. So so believes that an evil spirit managed to get into her camera and is now going on a killing spree.
I found this movie a little confusing and weird. Mostly because I've never heard of spirits being trapped in windows. I tired looking it up but all I could find was that crystals are used to absorb sunlight and bring good energy into the room. I actually have one of these in my room. I think it looks pretty.
I'm thinking this was something made up for a story. I wasn't really impressed with it, but who knows, you might like it.
Here's a trailer:
