Horrific Recap of February 6 - 12, 2022
Updated: Jul 25, 2022
Hey there horror fans and welcome back to Horror Junket. I hope the day finds you well, and if not, I have so some horror news to cheer you right on up. We've got some Jordan Peele and Super Bowl scares to look forward to, as well as some horror gaming so I won't waste anymore time. Lets get into it. If you haven't done so already, go and grab that fright pillow tight--a little tighter now, as we dive in some of the horror that occurred last week.
Sunday - February 6
Rob from Riffing On Horror was back last week with a new True Crime & Horror Time, with a side-by-side look at Alaskan serial killer Robert Hansen and the 2003 film The Frozen Ground.
True Crimes & Horror Times continues solo with Rob for the true crime podcast's sixth episode, that takes a look at the real life monsters that live or lived among us. Turning his attention to the truly sick Robert Hansen and the film he would inspire, Rob compared the feature film to the monster to see where the film was right, wrong, or just spinning Hollywood tales.
Get your true crime fix by joining Rob every Thursday for a new True Crimes & Horror Times that will feature a new killer of the week on Spotify.
In one week football fans will tune in for the Big Game between the L.A. Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, but fans of horror might also get a treat with a couple Super Bowl ads that could bring some chills to the NFL showdown.
Fans of Jordan Peele, and the horror he provides the genre, have surely seen the poster and the just recently released teaser trailer for Nope, but an official trailer still remains elusive...until Super Bowl LVI that is. Yep, I would bet big money that a trailer for Nope will be shown sometime during the Big Game, more money that I'm putting on the Bengals. As a fan of the scares that Jordan Peele brings to horror, I will be through the roof when that trailer premieres.
My excitement is also building for any mention of the fourth season of Stranger Things. As we inch closer to the summertime release date of ST on Netflix, it would be a huge fumble if those behind the hit series DIDN'T secure a couple of million dollar time slots. We've already seen a couple previews for Stranger Things 4 but like Nope, we have not seen an official trailer yet and that, may or may not becoming sometime during Super Bowl LVI. If you're not a fan of football but happen to be a fan of horror, you now have two good reasons to check out the game.
Monday - February 7
Eddie Izzard will play Dr. Nina Jekyll in Joe Stephenson's next project, Doctor Jekyll. Written by Dan Kelly-Mulhern, Doctor Jekyll will put a spin on the 1886 Robert Louis Stevenson novella, with Izzard's Nina Jekyll a recluse who hires Rob, a young man that will help Jekyll in keeping the evil hyde from destroying the recluse's life.
“I am very excited to be playing the role of Nina Jekyll in this new feature film and it’s wonderful to be able to reimagine this classic story in a modern way,” says Izzard, who will star alongside Scott Chambers, Morgan Watkins and Robyn Cara. Production is already underway on the film with filming set to begin this week at various U.K. locations.
