Horrific Recap of January 16 - 22, 2022

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

While the world continues to react to the latest Scream film, we here at Horror Junket look forward to another spooky week filled with screams, scares and dread. It's good to see all you horror fans back here for another rundown in horror. It might be early in the year but from what we're seeing, a lot of horror--whether they be movies, television shows, video games or literature, all kinds of scares are on the way, and a few of them will be mentioned later on in this Horrific Recap. If you haven't done so already, go on and grab that fright pillow tightly, as we begin our Horrific Recap with Sunday of last week.


 

January 16 - Sunday


Dying Light 2 Stay Human arrives in February but before that release date hits, fans can get a look at some gameplay footage to help keep that hype peaked for next month.


Techland's sequel to their 2015 horror survival hit moves from Dying Light's middle-eastern city of Harran, to a new location with Dying Light 2, a place called The City. The video is full of cutscenes from the game and every once in a while you'll catch a bit of actual game footage. It looks like a lot of the parkour and melee mechanics will be returning to Dying Light 2, as well as some familiar foes and obstacles that made Dying Light and enjoyable play.


Gamers can pre-order Dying Light 2 Stay Human right now and have it ready to play when the game releases on February 4 for PC, Xbox and PlayStation.


 

January 17 - Monday



Is Happy Death Day 3 in the works? A recent tweet from Jason Blum has this horror fan wondering just that after the horror producer asked for questions on Twitter.


Twitter user nour_saudi, inquired about a third Happy Death Day film and Blum was happy to answer that,"something is stirring."


With so much currently on Blum's plate, what with Halloween Ends and a trilogy of Exorcist films currently in the works, it's good to see that Happy Death Day is still on Blum's mind given everything else the producer of screams is involved in.


 

January 18 - Tuesday



Michael O’Leary will be joining the cast of Halloween Ends as Dr. Mathis, in the final film of the the new Halloween trilogy.


In a tweet that has since been deleted, O'Leary was happy to exclaim that he will be joining Halloween Ends on January 27, and is excited to star alongside the franchise's iconic star Jamie Lee Curtis, for the final showdown with Michael Myers...maybe. Currently in production and set for a release later this year in October, Halloween Ends will see the return of Andi Matichak as well as Kyle Richards, whose character Lindsey Wallace survived the slaughter that occurred in Halloween Kills.


Directed by David Gordon Green, Halloween Ends continues its work in production and will be released later this year on October 14.
