A Horrific Recap of July 17 - 23, 2022

Updated: Nov 19, 2022

Hello again, and welcome back to the site that has hopefully given you a scare or two over the last couple of years. I'm glad you're here, an you're just in time for another terrifying horror refresher, filled with some the chills and thrill that went on last week. Let's not waste another minute and jump right on into the most recent Horrific Recap, as we take a look at some of the scares that occurred last week, starting with...


 

July 17 - Sunday



A rumor is circulating that The Boys actor, Antony Starr, could be in line to play Dracula in the upcoming Blade reboot from Marvel. If it's true, that would be a pretty good choice, if my opinion matters any.


Nothing has been confirmed yet by either the Homelander actor or those behind the Blade film, but if the rumor is true, Antony Starr could make one hell of a Dracula to go against Mahershala Ali as Blade.


With San Diego Comic-Con on the way, the rumor could be confirmed or squashed as early as this week, where Marvel will surely have more than a few panels going due to their unveiling of Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It looks like Netflix is about to get spookier in a family friendly way later this year, with the premiere of Tim Burton's Wednesday and Rob Zombie's The Munsters.


No official date is set yet for the premiere of Wednesday, the new series from Tim Burton, that will center around Wednesday Addams, as she navigates life at Nevermore Academy, and the mysteries that surround the town and her family. Starring Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Riki Lindhome, Gwendoline Christie, and Christina Ricci, Wednesday is created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, and will feature the music of Danny Elfman.


Rob Zombie's The Munsters will find it ways to a Netflix premiere in September, the reboot of the zany, 1960's sitcom set to tell the early love story of how Lily met Herman. Written and Directed by Rob Zombie, The Munsters will star Jeff Daniel Phillips, Sheri Moon Zombie, Daniel Roebuck, Jorge Garcia, Dee Wallace, and Cassandra Peterson.


Some good, family friendly horror coming to Netflix just before the start of the spookiest month of them all, and just in time for Halloween. Be sure to check out Wednesday and The Munsters when they release later this year.





R.L. Stine has confirmed that more Fear Street films are in development by Netflix, the horror author sitting down with Yahoo's Y! to reveal the good news.


Having been a fan himself of the three Netflix produced films that came out last year, R.L. Stine would be excited to see more bloody films based on his work, and I don't think there is a horror fan out there that would disagree. "There's still talk about more Goosebumps movies," says Stine, "and I a
