Horrific Recap of November 7 - 13, 2021

Updated: Jan 18

When a week full of horror ends and another one begins, that's where you'll find your Horrific Recap provided to you by Horror Junket. With that said, welcome back to Horror Junket horror fans, it's good to see you back here. Right about now, it's time again for a recap of what has happened last week in the genre of horror. If you haven't done so already, go ahead and grab that fright pillow tight—a little tighter now, as we take a look at all the scares from last week.


 

November 7 - Sunday



Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be in theaters before you know it but until November 19 hits, sneak peeks like the one on PlayStation's YouTube channel will have to tide you over.


In the small clip, Paul Rudd stumbles upon a Terror Dog at his local Walmart, his presence given away by a group of party-hardy mini Stay Puft Marshmellow men. Laughs ensue as Rudd is forced to make a mad dash out of the store and the "safety" of his car out in the parking lot. I cannot wait until Ghostbusters: Afterlife releases to theaters on November 19.


 

November 8 - Monday



Dean Stockwell may not have been a big name in horror but he will still be missed, if not only for his role as Bob in television's 1995 adaptation of Stephen King's The Langoliers.


A familiar face to both TV and film, Dean Stockwell broke into the entertainment industry early as a child star who would work with Hollywood greats such as Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, before becoming the voice of Duke Nukem in Captain Planet and the Planeteers and Al in Quantum Leap.


Dean Stockwell was 85 at the time of his passing.


 

November 9 - Tuesday



Finn Wolfhard will be taking audiences to camp with his first feature horror film, a project still in the early stages of development.


The musician/actor sat down with Rhian Daly of NME last week to talk about his band's upcoming debut album release, a group named The Aubreys, made up of Wolfhard and his drummer/best friend, Malcolm Craig. Conversation eventually turned to Wolfhard's impressive acting career and future aspirations. Having already written and directed a short film titled, Night Shifts, Wolfhard was kind enough to share that his new idea, “It’s a horror-comedy-slasher movie that takes place at a camp.”


Finn Wolfhard can next be seen in Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things. Be sure to checkout The Aubreys' debut album when it releases next week.


 

November 10 - Wednesday



NECA will release a new Creep figure next year, this time based on the Creep animation from the 1982 George A. Romero/Stephen King film, Creepshow.


The Creep was given a new look for his Shudder debut in 2019, crafted beautifully by Greg Nicotero, garnering a few NECA releases. Some would say it was only a matter of time before the classic Creep would re-emerge and given a figure release.


Coming next year, the classic rendition of the Creep from the 1982 anthology Creepshow, starring such great talent like Leslie Neilsen, Adrienne Barbeau, Ted Danson and Hal Halbrook, will get the NECA treatment—available sometime, hopefully, next year.


Prey is the new title of the upcoming Predator film.


 

November 11 - Thursday



It was a slightly controversial, 1978 horror film based very loosely on a true story that had garnered big news. Next year in 2022, the gore fest that is The Toolbox Murders will be available for purchase in a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition.


Written by Neva Friedenn, Robert Easter and Ann Kindberg while being directed by Dennis Donnelly, The Toolbox Murders would go on to become a film favorite of horror author Stephen King.


Starring Cameron Mitchell, Pamelyn Ferdin and Kelly Nichols, this new edition of the 1978 cult classic will include a new restoration of the film along with new commentary and interviews with those involved with the film. The Toolbox Murders is available fro pre-order and available early next year on January 18.


 

November 12 - Friday



Dee Wallace will star in Incubus: New Beginnings, an upcoming horror film that is currently in development.


Written and directed by Terry Aderholt, Incubus: New Beginnings will tell the story of a group of reuniting friends, who must fight it out with an incubus demon that is determined to breed the women and take their newborns back to hell. Dee Wallace joins the production and is set to play a demonologist to assist the women in their battle against the incubus.


Dee Wallace joins Krystal Summers, Natali Jones, Kristin Keith and Chaselyn Wade for Incubus: New Beginning, a feature horror film that is set to begin filming next year in Granbury, Texas.


 

November 13 - Saturday



It was only a matter of time before sharks and the Amityville franchise would meet up. I don't know how, or why but coming soon is an Amityville story with teeth.


Directed by Will Collazo Jr. and Shawn C. Phillips, Amityville Shark House will attempt to tell that horror story between ocean killer and haunted house in a way that only these guys could. Plot details are still unknown at this time and any hint of the story is non-existent.


Amityville Shark House will star Gigi Gustin, Dustin Clingan, Niko El Santo Zavero and Tasha Tacosa for a new Amityville tale that is currently in post-production.



 

Well, that wasn't too scary, was it? If you've made it this far then congratulations, you're all caught up on some of the horror that occurred last week. Time sure does fly and before you know it, you'll be right back here at Horror Junket for another Horrific Recap. Until that day though, stay spooky and don't forget to scream every once in awhile.
