Horrific Recap of August 29 - September 4, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Hey there horror fans and welcome back to Horror Junket for what should be a scare-filled Horrific Recap of the end of August and beginning of September. If you haven't done so yet, go ahead and grab hold of your fright pillow, squeeze it tight—tighter, as we turn back time a bit and revisit the horror of last week.


 

Sunday - August 29



Horror could be found at gamescom 2021 with the release of gameplay footage for the upcoming Dying 1983, from publisher 2P Games and developer Nekcom Entertainment.


The first person puzzle solving adventure game with aspects of horror sprinkled in, looks all kinds of dark and challenging. From the brief video I was able to gather that puzzles range in difficulty from deciphering photos with ease, to shooting at a tea kettle after some mental gymnastics.


Dying:1983 is the sequel to 2017's Dying: Reborn. At this time there is no known release date.

Two other photos show the S.T.A.R.S. team members in what I believe to be the Spencer mansion, a very familiar setting to any one familiar with the 1996 video game.


Written and directed by Johannes Roberts, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will also star Tom Hopper, Neal McDonough, Donal Logue, Hannah John-Kamen and Robbie Amell.





Mel Brooks' comedic film based on the Bram Stoker classic novel—and the numerous film adaptations that followed—will finally get a 4K release with the help of horror favorite Scream Factory.


Dracula: Dead and Loving It takes a step up from its current DVD format, to finally shine bright on your 4K television sets. You'll be able to watch as Steven Weber gets doused with gallon after gallon of blood in all its red glory.


Written and directed by Mel Brooks, Dracula: Dead and Loving It is the famed director's last film. Starring the always hilarious Leslie Nielsen, Peter MacNicol, Amy Yasbeck and Lysette Anthony, Dracula: Dead and Loving It will be out on Blu-ray later this year on November 21.


 

Tuesday - August 31



The final trailer for Malignant arrives just before its release next month. I do recommend that you check it out, if not solely f
