Horrific Recap of June 20-26, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

What is up, horror fans and welcome back for another Horrific Recap presented by Horror Junket. It's good to see you and thank for dropping by. I'm excited to get last week's horror news to you so I won't ramble on longer than I have to. Go ahead and grab your pillow tight — a little tighter now, and settle in for a recap on what should be most of last week's horror news.

 

Sunday - June 20


It was Father's Day last Sunday and I can think of one son who didn't have a serial killer father to hug.


I don't know if Showtime's Dexter, shared the same thought but they took to Twitter to remind fans that Harrison, last seen in the care of Hannah McKay, was still on Dexter's mind after all these years.


It has been mentioned by some that no cast from the past would be returning, except for Michael C. Hall because, well — he has to, but that could all be a smokescreen. Nothing has been confirmed yet about any returns, though much has been denied. To be honest the only characters I would really like to see return would be Angel, Misuka and Deb — if that can be worked. Plot details for the upcoming ninth season of Dexter are mostly unknown but at least television's 'most charming serial killer' no longer has a beard.




Neal McDonough will appear in FX's upcoming season of American Horror Story, the next chapter in the hit horror TV series' anthology, that will feature two stories this time around. McDonough will appear as a character named Dwight Eisenhower — not the past President — for the show's tenth season.


Neal McDonough joins cast regulars Evan Peters, Leslie Grossman and Lily Rabe, along with newcomer to the series Macaulay Culkin, for the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk television hit. McDonough can also be seen as William Birkin in the upcoming Johannes Roberts reboot of Resident Evil this November. American Horror Story: Double Feature will premiere the first episode of its tenth season on August 25.




David Harbour sat down with Collinder's Steve Weintraub to discuss his character Hopper and the upcoming fourth season of Netflix hit Stranger Things.


"He’s been, as we’ve seen, he’s in this Russian prison, so we get to reinvent him in a sense. He gets to have a rebirth from what he had become, and we’d always sort of planned this almost resurrection of you have Gandalf dies, Galdalf the Grey re-emerge, and I’m really interested in this resurgence of him."


Near the end of Stranger Things' third season, Hopper made the ultimate sacrifice. Fans, having already been struck a blow by Bob's death, were not ready to lose Hawkin's gruff but lovable police chief as well. The conclusion of the third season confirmed that Hopper was still with us, and that a fourth season would definitely include Eleven's stand-in father. Season 4 of the hit show will be out later this year...hopefully.




Jakob's Wife comes to Blu-Ray and DVD next month but you can check it out now on Shudder, as part of the horror streaming service's 'Summer of Chills'.
