Horrific Recap of October 24 - 30, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Hey there horror fans. It's good to see you all back here at Horror Junket for another Horrific Recap because lets face it, our beautiful month of October is almost over. I won't be too sad though because I write this early in the morning of Halloween day and who can be sad during the scariest time of the year? I won't make this longer than it has to be so go on and grab your fright pillow tight—a little tighter now, as we recap on some of the horror that occurred last week.


 

October 24 - Sunday



Resident Evil and Fortnite join forces with the introduction of the S.T.A.R.S. bundle, a collection of Fortnite goodies that will give players two very well known Resident Evil skins.


Epic Games is no stranger to adding popular licenses to Fortnite and this time fans will be able to play as either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine from the hit zombie franchise. They won't be playing as Milla Jovovich or Michelle Rodriguez or anything but Jill and Chris are spooky--and familiar enough for Resident Evil fans to jump aboard.


The S.T.A.R.S. bundle will include some extra fun goodies like an herb and typewriter to be worn on the back while you fight and build. There will also be two pickaxes available and a Resident Evil themed loading screen to keep your eyes entertained. Top prize for the bundle will be an umbrella with a very familiar Umbrella logo on it. Fight, build and play as some of your favorite Resident Evil characters, available in Fortnite now!


 

October 25 - Monday



I don't know about you but I won't shop Black Friday in store. I don't mind online but in store shopping—I would probably murder someone.


Black Friday, a horror/comedy based on the post-Thanksgiving retail holiday, feels the same way and will pit a group of unfortunate retail workers against a horde of bloodthirsty and infected deal shoppers. I hope those retail workers have invested in crypto and meme stocks because things are about to get bad!


Directed by Casey Tebo and written by Andy Greskoviak, Black Friday will star Devon Sawa, Bruce Campbell, Michael Jai White and Ivana Baquero. Be sure to catch Black Friday when it releases to theaters on November 19 and later to VOD on November 23.





Lori Evans Taylor, writer of the upcoming thriller Bed Rest, has been tapped to help pen the next film in the Final Destination franchise.


Having been in development for some time and still in the early stages of pre-production, the next entry in the death filled series—that will hopefully give the Faces of Death videos a run for their money—was confirmed back in late 2020 by series creator Jeffrey Reddick.


With Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan onboard to write the film, there is talk that those behind the latest Final Destination film will be taking the film in another direction, dealing less with strangers to death and more so those that experience death day to day like EMTs and others in the medical field. More news is sure to come as this still-in-development project matures and you'll read about it here first.
