Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Welcome back, horror fans! It's about time for another Horror Junket's Horrific Recap. It's really good to see you again and thank you for dropping by. As always I'm excited to get last week's horror news to you so, if you haven't done so already, go ahead and grab your pillow tight—a little tighter now, because things are about to get scary as we recap last week's horror news.


 

Sunday - July 4



The name for The Dark Pictures Anthology fourth title is now known, just months before the premiere of the anthology's third game, House of Ashes.


Found on Justia Trademarks, the title for the fourth game in The Dark Pictures Anthology, the horror games from Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco Entertainment, will be The Devil in Me. The trademark filing also includes a picture of the skull and compass, a familiar logo for those that follow The Dark Pictures games, as well as the newly revealed title for the game.


The next installment of The Dark Pictures Anthology will come later in the year with House of Ashes. Players will take control of CIA field operative Rachel King, played by Ashley Tisdale, for a dark tale set in Iraq, in a search for chemical weapons. Also returning to the game is the soft spoken Curator, played by Pip Torrens. House of Ashes will be available later this year on October 22.





Jason's famed hockey mask, worn in the SWAT scene from Jason Goes to Hell: the Final Friday, has sold in auction and for way more than what anyone expected it would go for.


Sold at auction held by the Prop Store, along with other famed items from some of Hollywood's biggest feature films, Jason's hockey mask would fetch a whopping $180,000 once all bidding was exhausted. The screen worn item was only expected to get between $20,000-$30,000 when it was first announced for sale. On top of the buyer's premium, the winning bidder will pay a total of $225,000 for the legendary hockey mask, a true collector's piece for any horror fan's collection.

Director Richard Donner has passed away at the age of 91, leaving behind a legacy of films that will be enjoyed for generations to come. Well known for his hits like Superman, The Goonies (Hey, you guys!) and the Lethal Weapon films, Donner would also be behind a couple of good horror flicks as well.
