Horror Junket's Horrific Recap of June 6-12, 2021

Updated: Jul 24, 2021

What is up, horror fans and thank you for stopping by the site today. I'm excited to get this new idea off the ground, as a way to provide you with all the horror news that happened last week. I won't ramble on so grab your pillow tight — a little tighter now, and lets recap last week's spooky news.

 

June 6


Sad, terrible news came midday about the passing of Clarence Williams III, who was battling cancer up until his death. Williams is best known in the world of horror as Mr. Simms, the eccentric funeral director in Tales From the Hood. He also appeared in Twin Peaks as FBI agent Roger Hardy, and later in his career in the film American Nightmares. Clarence Williams III was 81 when he passed.

A new cast member was announced for Renny Harlin's upcoming horror film, The Refuge. Jason Flemyng will join Harlin in his next film, about a US military veteran who is not quite the same after he returns home from Afghanistan. While his symptoms and behavior are dismissed as PTSD, his wife believes that he has been possessed.


I'm always excited to hear that Jason Flemyng has been cast in a film — any film, his range of acting is quite extraordinary. I mean he can do comedy, dramatic roles and he did a very adequate job as Mr. Hyde.



Later on in the day, Rob Zombie would take to his Instagram to announce his next film, The Munsters. Rumors of Zombie's interest had been swirling for a bit. It was no secret that the director, singer and songwriter was a fan of the 1964 classic television show, that unfortunately ran for only two seasons.


I've read some mixed reviews online and I will encourage people not to go passing judgement just yet. I know I am not alone when I say this — and I stand by my words, I liked the Rob Zombie Halloween films. With that said, I am excited to see what he will do with The Munsters because, lets face it, that attempt on television years ago was no bueno.
