Updated: Nov 19, 2022
I bet you're looking for some horror, aren't you? Well, you've come to the right place because I have a brand new Horrific Recap that I'm just dying for you to read. A few things happened in the world of horror last week and if you're like me, you might not have caught them. Well don't worry because this week's Horrific Recap will fill you in on some of the horror that occurred last week, just in case a horror pop quiz should spring up. If you haven't done so already, go on and grab that fright pillow tight--tighter now, as we begin our look back at some of last week's scares beginning with...
June 19 - Sunday
Dread Central recently sat down with Emma Roberts and John Gallagher Jr. to discuss their upcoming psychological horror film, Abandoned, but it was only when the actress was asked about a possible return to the Scream franchise, that my interest really took hold.
Unfortunately horror fans and Scream fans alike won't be seeing Emma Roberts re-enter the franchise anytime soon, as the current film in production continues to focus on cast from the last film, as well as moving things to NYC this time around.
Even though her character Jill took a bullet to the heart in Scream 4, there is always the Tinseltown possibility that Jill survived and has been locked away in a hospital ever since. Emma Roberts seems delighted at the hope of a return saying, "I'd go back to Scream. I feel like I wasn't done with Scream."
If Scream continues on after Wes like it has, we just might get that storyline in the future because we know we won't be seeing Randy coming back from the dead, not after the last Scream. Maybe Matthew Lillard, though?

Ash Crossan with Screen Rant sat down with producer Jason Blum last week, to talk about The Black Phone, the latest in horror from Blumhouse and director Scott Derrickson. Lucky us, the conversation between the two didn't just linger on the soon to release film, but touched on quite a few upcoming projects in the genre of horror.
Topics of discussion jumped from The Black Phone, to Happy Death Day 3, even the end of the current Halloween trilogy, Halloween Ends, but the topic that excited Blum and Crossan most was when talks turned to Ash's recent interview with actor Robert Englund.
"I can make him come--I can make anyone come back. I mean Ellen Burstyn was 87, I got her back in The Exorcist," says Jason Blum confidently, and I for one, believe him. Currently, Robert Englund has said many times that he's done playing Freddy Kruger but, I feel, with the right script and Blumhouse holding the rights, horror's favorite dream demon could help to make Blumhouse his new home.

American Horror Stories is almost ready to kick off its second season of horrifying tales on Hulu this summer, but before they do, they have a poster for fans that ties into the series' second season premiere episode "Dollhouse".
Looking like a multiverse Annabelle photo op, the new poster for American Horror Stories doesn't give away much in plot details, as much as it gives me the creeps. The series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk spins off from the FX series American Horror Story, created by the duo back in 2011.
