Horrific Recap of October 31 - November 6, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

It's another week gone by and sadly it is the end of October, the spookiest month of them all. I hope all you horror fans had a great Halloween because I kid you not, the Christmas music is sure to start anytime now. Before all that horrible holiday cheer begins, I have another Horrific Recap for you, so let's hurry up and get into before the Mariah Carey singing starts up. Go ahead and grab that fright pillow tight now, as we get into it with some of the horror that occurred last week...beginning with Halloween.


 

October 31 - Sunday



Happy Halloween!


I have no horror news to report except for the scares I woke up to looking in the mirror this morning. AHHHH!!


The spookiest day of the year is here and gone but the screams will hopefully carry on to next year. I hope everyone had a safe holiday and my good wishes extend out to all you kids—I hope you all got enough candy to give you a stomachache for days to come.


 

November 1 - Monday



Good news for Hocus Pocus fans! Actor Doug Jones will be returning to the role of Billy Butcherson for the much anticipated sequel, Hocus Pocus 2.


Ex-boyfriend to Winifred, eldest of the witchy Sanderson sisters, Billy was the zombie brought back to life in the 1993 Disney film, to assist the sisters in their pursuit of three youngsters. Bad guy turned good, Billy would help the youngsters, along with Binx the black cat, to defeat the witch sisters and save the day.


Doug Jones is well known for the many characters he has played in films like The Shape of Water, Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth. The return of his character Billy Butcherson is endearing to fans who truly enjoyed the zombie with a heart from the first film.


 

November 2 - Tuesday



Rob Savage will direct the upcoming horror film The Boogeyman, the feature being adapted from a short story by horror author Stephen King.


20th Century and Hulu will join Savage, along with 21 Laps Entertainment in bringing the short story to life as a two hour feature film, penned by Mark Heyman from an original draft by Scott Beck, Bryan Woods and Akela Cooper.


Production on The Boogeyman will begin in winter of this year and go into the spring of 2022, with no word yet of shooting locations, casting or release dates.
