A Horrific Recap of July 3 - 9, 2022

Updated: Nov 19, 2022

Hey there horror fans, good to see you, and welcome back to Horror Junket. As always, I have that scare filled Horrific Recap for you that will prepare you should any horror pop quizzes come your way. A lot of good horror occurred last week so let's not waste another minute. Go on and grab your fright pillow tight, as we begin our look back at last week's spooks and chills starting with...


July 3 - Sunday

Prey is the latest film to come out of the Predator franchise and it won't be the last according to Prey director Dan Trachtenberg, who linked up with Phil de Semlyen of Time Out.

"There are a lot of exciting ideas for what could be next for the franchise," says the Prey director, "The things that most excite me are the boldest swings and I think there's scope to do other things that haven't been done before."

Prey will enjoy its premiere on Hulu next month, opening up a wide possibility of ways to tell more stories set in the Predator universe. Sure, there could be more theatrical Predator releases, but it would be real cool to see a limited series, maybe even an animated show or two. Given the success and evolution of streaming and the services they provide, a number of Predator related projects could come to fruition in the future.

The Predator franchise sticks to Earth again with Prey, but the time and setting have severely changed with the character of Naru, a young Comanche warrior, who goes against the trophy-seeking, skilled extraterrestrial. Written by Patrick Aison, Prey will star Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush and Julian Black Antelope.


July 4 - 4th of July

More scares begin streaming tomorrow on Shudder, bringing some much-needed chills and cold sweats to your already hotter than hot summer.

Start your day off right with a horror binge, where Shudder has you covered with three new releases that are sure to bring some decades old scares your way with The Burning, Meatcleaver Massacre, and Mansion of the Doomed. Whether it's a burn victim seeking revenge, a college professor with murder on the mind, or a surgeon with an eye for experimental surgeries, your Monday won’t be without scares when these three feature films get their Shudder premieres.

Finally, also being released tomorrow will be the Argentinian horror film, On the 3rd Day, directed by Daniel de la Vega and written by Alberto Fasce and Gonzalo Ventura. The film will tell the story of Cecilia, a woman found wandering alone three days after a horrible car crash, who finds herself with more frightening questions than answers. Shudder brings all this horror and more, starting tomorrow July 5.

Scream Factory is doing what they do best and giving three films of horror the 4K Ultra Hi-Def Collector's Edition treatment, that only Scream Factory can provide.

John Carpenter's classic The Fog is first up with a release coming in the next couple months, even though the extra features for the Collector's Edition are still being produced. Coming with an exclusive 18" x 24" poster, this 4K UHD edition of The Fog will be one for the movie collectors and available in other editions that include extra goodies for a price.

Army of Darkness and Evil Dead will get the same treatment from Scream Factory, with releases that will come later and include their own exclusive posters and special features. All three films can be pre-ordered now over at Scream Factory's site, with The Fog releasing on September 13 and Army of Darkness and Evil Dead following shortly after, with a release date on September 27.
