Even though the weather is not cool and crisp like it should be, it still feels good waking up, knowing that it's the beautiful month of October. All kinds of horror and spookiness are taking place and it is a joy to see and experience. With that said, lets not wait and get right into some horror that occurred last week. Go ahead and grab that pillow you keep in times of fright and grip it tightly, as we begin our Horrific Recap of last week's horror!


October 3 - Sunday

Mr. Harrigan's Phone is well into pre-production with the casting of Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell in lead roles.

Adapted from a short story by Stephen King and based off the screenplay from John Lee Hancock, Mr. Harrigan's Phone will tell a dark story of friendship between Martel's teenage Craig and Sutherland's Mr. Harrigan, a friendship that continues even after the old man dies.

Produced by Blumhouse, Ryan Murphy and Netflix, Mr. Harrigan's Phone is set to begin production later this month with an eye on next year for its release.


October 4 - Monday

Alan Wake is ready to release again for the latest generation of gaming and consoles, now with a more polished and updated look for the 11-year-old game.

The light-wielding horror author, voice by Matthew Porretta, returns to consoles and PC tomorrow. Alan Wake will once again take gamers through the bestselling author's horrific tale and fight through the sleepy town of Bright Falls. Helped by his sidekick Barry, voiced by Fred Berman, Alan Wake will fight the dark and shadowy lumberjacks, rising everything to find his wife Alice.

Available for pre-purchase now through retailers such as GameStop, Alan Wake will be available to play starting 12AM EST on Xbox, Playstation and PC.

Before Fried Barry hits Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, why not sit down for an interview with director Ryan Kruger?
