Updated: Nov 19, 2022

Welcome back horror fans, I can see that you are in need. In need of what? In need of some horror news of course, and you've back to the right place for it. There's no sense in making this long, so lets get right in to it with another Horrific Recap of some of the horror that went on last week, beginning with...


 

March 27 - Sunday



If you're a fan of the Australian zombie wasteland movie Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, then I have some good news for you. Just released today, those behind the sequel film, Wyrmwood: Apocalypse, have released a trailer for your viewing pleasure.


The zombie infestation is just the same as ever, and the need to find a cure is stronger. Rhys has taken it upon himself to help the Surgeon General find that cure, taking out any survivors that get in his way.


Directed by Kiah Roache-Turner, who co-wrote the film along with Tristan Roache-Turner, Wyrmwood: Apocalypse will see the return of stars Luke McKenzie, Jay Gallagher and Bianca Bradey, for a sequel that will release to the US next month, April 15.


 

March 28 - Monday



SLAP! In a surprise move from the Academy Awards, Army of the Dead picks up a win for being the fan favorite film of the year, beating out Spider-Man: No Way Home.


The Academy partnered with Twitter to create the unofficial award, held between February 14 through March 3, and was done mostly in the hope of casting a wider Oscars net, because let's face it, viewership for the star-studded night are dwindling faster then ever before. The zombie heist film from Zack Snyder from Netflix, had its share of complaints due to being shot weird, while also suffering from some major plot issues, but Army of the Dead was still fun to watch. Yes, a CGI tiger can help a lot too.


 

March 29 - Tuesday



Big news comes from The Ankler's Hollywood Transom with word of a new series that will focus on IT--better known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown--a new series that might soon be in production over at HBO Max.


This inside scoop--filled with coulrophobia and awesomeness--could not have this King/Pennywise fan more excited. Details of the production are still unknown but some tidbits have leaked through, and it is believed that the new series, titled Welcome to Derry, will be a prequel of sorts. I know the backstory of IT quite well and I understand that I am not alone in that knowledge, which fills me with joy knowing that we could get a series that deeply explores the origins of the shapeshifting IT, an entity who has been elevating clown fear since September of 1986.


I'll be keep my ears perked and eyes sharp for any news on this one. So visit Horror Junket time from time and if you're a fan like me, you'll get some new Welcome to Derry news here!


 

March 30 - Wednesday



The trailer for Choose or Die has dropped on YouTube, and if you're a fan of films about gaming then you might want to check this one out.


Kayla has a passion for coding and retro games, so it's no surprise that she would jump at a chance to play an old retro survival horror game from the 80s. Being a horror film, things take a turn for the worse when the cursed game begins to make Kayla's decisions more real then she could ever ask for.
