I won't waste too much of your time so lets jump right on into it, some of the horror that occurred last week. Go ahead and grab your fright pillow and lets go for another Horrific Recap!
October 10 - Sunday
Those behind the latest entry in the Scream franchise took to Twitter to give fans their first look at the film's new poster.
Similar in look to posters from past Scream films, this new poster features Ghostface with his/her weapon of choice, a knife raised and ready to stab. "It's always someone you know," is the tagline the film is going with and given the past history from the Scream franchise, it is a pretty spot on tagline.
Scream fans will continue to contain their excitement for the fifth film in the series, on its way early next year. Starring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Marley Shelton, Jack Quaid and Melissa Barrera, Scream will release to theaters on January 14, 2022.
October 11 - Monday
The construction on 1313 Mockingbird Lane is finished according to Rob Zombie, who took to his Instagram page to let fans and followers know that The Munsters is well on its way in its production.
It was a joy to watch such an icon house being built from the ground up. Starting with location scouting in Budapest and then its absolutely amazing finish, I can honestly say that the upcoming Munster's film is in very good hands with director Rob Zombie.
I can't wait to see who Rob Zombie picks to play The Munster family! He's doing amazing so far.
October 12 - Tuesday
Scream fans got a poster reveal on Sunday which means that it should come as no surprise to anyone, that a trailer in now available for your viewing pleasure.
Sidney Prescott, along with Dewey, Gale and Marley Shelton return for round five of Ghostface's latest, murderous antics and to once again face the horrors of Sidney's past. Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, Scream will be available in theater next year on January 14.
October 13 - Wednesday
With Michael Myers hype at its peak, fans can't hardly wait until Friday when Halloween Kills finally releases in theaters and on Peacock.
Before all that goes down though, Meagan Navarro had the lucky chance to sit down with director David Gordon Green to get some exciting news about the next Halloween film that is to come, Halloween Ends.
"Halloween Ends is complete, and actually, I’m getting John Carpenter’s notes on the new draft later. So, I’m excited about that," says Green to Navarro, during their friendly interview that touched on much more than just Halloween.
David Gordon Green's reboot of the Halloween franchise began in 2018 with the first film titled Halloween. Announced as a trilogy, Halloween Kills will release later this week on Friday and fans can expect the third film, Halloween Ends, next year on October 14, 2022.
October 14 - Thursday
Jamie Lee Curtis always looks like she is having fun in her interviews and her appearance at the premiere of Halloween Kills was definitely on par.
Showing up to the red carpet premiere of her latest film, Halloween Kills, in a short blonde wig and a pastel blue getup, one could say that Jamie Lee Curtis closely resembled the character of Marion Crane from Psycho.
Curtis appeared to be in high spirits and having fun as a character once portrayed by her late mother Janet Leigh. I guess one would expect a designer dress and some top notch jewelry but in true style that is all her own, Jamie Lee Curtis truly embraced her Scream Queen status, all with a nod towards her OG Scream Queen mother.
October 15 - Friday
He arrives home tonight everybody and I could not be more excited.
Tonight is the night where Michael Myers gets his 'murder on' and we get one step closer to finding out what is in store for a most beloved silent and deadly killer.
Sneak peeks, trailers and TV spots have been gold in the weeks leading up to the premiere of Halloween Kills, and even though the first film in today's Halloween trilogy has its flaws, it still feels like it is setting up a bigger story for Michael Myers and Laurie Strode.
Who knows, though? I could just be speaking out of excitement but that's what I am, excited for this new film.
October 16 - Saturday
Kesha is taking the bold leap from music to paranormal investigation, in a show that will be titled Conjuring Kesha.
"Over the course of my life, I’ve always been drawn to the supernatural and the spiritual realm," says the TiK ToK singer, who will join up with Discovery+ for a new series that will send Kesha in pursuit of the paranormal. No stranger to the things that go bump in the night, the singer already has a paranormal podcast called Kesha and The Creepies, and promises a show that deals with the supernatural and the extraterrestrial.
Conjuring Kesha will be a six episode series that may see its series premiere on Discovery+ as soon as next year.
