Horrific Recap of February 27 - March 5, 2022

Updated: Jul 25, 2022

It's the beginning of another beautiful horror filled week and that means we have some scares to look back at with another Horrific Recap brought to you by Horror Junket. Last week had a good number of scares going on and I hope to touch on most of them as we dive right in. Go on and grab your fright pillow tight--a little tighter now as we look at last week's scares, starting with Sunday.


 

February 27 - Sunday



During a Q&A panel at Mad Monster Horror Party, Neve Campbell confirmed her return for the sixth Scream film, currently in very early pre-production.


“They have approached me. There’s no script yet. There is a draft coming soon is what I was told. Actually, I was supposed to call a producer yesterday, because he wanted to talk to me about what’s going on. You know, we’ll see. I’ll read the script and see how I feel," says Campbell during the horror convention that took place in Concord, North Carolina.


The sixth Scream film will begin production later this year in the summer. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are returning to direct, with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick also returning to write the film.


 

February 28 - Monday



Trick or Treat Studios kicks off Toy Fair 2022 with three new figures featuring Dr. Loomis and Michael Myers. That's right horror collectors, three new horror figures are coming your way!


Pre-orders will begin this summer for the three very detailed and very spooky figures, based on characters you know and love from the Halloween movies. Dr. Loomis, played by the late and great Donald Pleasence, will get the highly collectible figure treatment, along with Michael Myers from Halloween: H20 and Halloween: Resurrection. Each figure will be a 1/6 scale representation of their character, standing at almost a foot tall.


Be sure to act fast and get your pre-orders in line early when they open this summer. I have a hunch these Halloween figures will be hard to find after their release, which could be this year or the next.




Don Mancini took to Twitter to show off a new picture for Chucky and the show's second season that is soon to come.


Given the green light for more Chucky kills and humor, even before the show's season one finale, it was clear to see that fans wanted more Chucky and Don Mancini is eager to give fans what they want. In his post to Twitter, the Chucky creator confirmed that season two will be ready for TV audiences later this year.


Chucky saw its season one premiere last year back in October on both SyFy and USA Network, becoming available day one to streaming audiences online. Telling a new story that mixed the woes of being a teen with Child's Play horror and humor, Chucky was a hit from day one with more and more fans tuning in weekly. It will be no surprise to me at all, if season two were to carry the same fervor with fans, as it did in season one. I, for one, greatly look forward to Chucky's season two premiere and the humor and blood that is sure to come with it.
