Horrific Recap of September 5 - 11, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Welcome back to Horror Junket! It's the start of a new week but if your brain works anything like mine—squirrel!—then you need a refresher of all the horror that happened last week. If you haven't done so yet, go ahead and grab hold of your pillow tightly—a little tighter now, as we study for the pop quiz that is last week's horror.


 

Sunday - September 5



Is Alan Wake finally getting that remaster treatment hinted at some time ago by Epic Games back in June?


The Xbox 360 game that has some serious Stephen King/Dean Koontz vibes to it, has been prematurely confirmed by Rakuten Taiwan through their website, listing the upcoming remaster as being available for purchase next month.


Fans of Alan Wake will once again be able to take up their trusty flashlight, using it against those ghostly shadow lumberjacks next month on October 5. Confirmation from those behind the Alan Wake remaster is soon to come.





Fried Barry hit Shudder back in May and if the memory of it has stuck with you like a good acid trip, then I have some news for you.


Starting now and going until October 10, Ryan Kruger and those behind Fried Barry are hosting an art competition for fans that may, or may not be artistically gifted. Fried Barry inspired artwork can be turned in through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and should utilize #FRIEDBARRY when submitting.


The big winner has much to gain with prizes including a Fried Barry t-shirt, a signed poster, enamel badges, a vinyl soundtrack, an official bottle of Fried Barry hot sauce and the big announcement made by Fried Barry himself, actor Gary Green.


Get your art in quick before the October 10 deadline. Places to enter your art are listed above and of course, good luck you.
