Horrific Recap of June 27-July 3, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

What is up, horror fans and welcome back to the site, 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 27

You know summer is in full effect when, one—the heat is cranked to blazing and two, Discovery announces the return of Shark Week. That's right. You can watch from the safety of your own home as those braver than I am, interact with some of the planet's most terrifying creatures.

Join Snoop Dogg, Eli Roth, William Shatner and Robert Irwin, as they explore the world of great whites, hammerheads, tiger sharks and more, in a week filled with all kinds of highlights and sharp-toothed interactions and encounters.

Shark Week will kick off on July 11 with Crikey! It’s Shark Week featuring Robert Irwin at 8pm. Shark Week will come to an end on July 18 with Shark Academy at 10pm.

The Boy Behind the Door has me intrigued. The film will tell the story of friends Bobby and Kevin, played by Lonnie Chavis and Ezra Dewey, who are kidnapped by a stranger and locked away in a house in the middle of nowhere. When Bobby manages to escape and makes a break for it, he realizes that he can't leave his best friend behind.

The Boy Behind the Door is directed by David Charbonier and Justin Powell, who both wrote the film as well. The Boy Behind the Door will release on Shudder towards the end of next month, July 29.


Monday - June 28

Junji Ito has created a short tie-in manga for Robert Egger's film The Lighthouse, which will release in Japan next month, July 9.

The Lighthouse was released to U.S. audiences back in November of 2019. The film stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, as two lighthouse keepers that slowly lose their grip on reality. The short comic will be given to attendees of the film as a way to promote the film that was halted from its release in Japan due to the COVID pandemic. The comic will be 8 pages long and will accompany the release of The Lighthouse in Japan on July 9.
