[This week in horror] Michael Myers makes his long awaited return; Vengeful spirits torment the living
(By Matt Konopka) With so much content these days, it can be difficult to keep up with all of the horror releasing, especially during this Halloween season. So, beginning this week, I'll be doing my best to keep you all updated with all of the horror films/series screaming your way each week. And what a start, as this week sees the return of the grand daddy of horror icons...
...There isn't a whole lot of terror haunting your airwaves this week, which is probably a good thing, since many of you are probably catching up on The Haunting of Hill House (and if not, you totally should be). This week sees more ghouls and ghosts, and makes up for the lackluster week with one of if not the biggest horror films of the year slicing and dicing its way into theaters. Without further ado, here's what to keep an eye out for this week:
JOHNNY GRUESOME (10/16)
Directed by: Greg Lamberson (Slime City)
Synopsis: When rebellious high school student Johnny Grissom is murdered, he returns from the grave as a revenge crazed supernatural creature to wreak havoc on those who wronged him.
A series brought to you by the executive producers of The Purge and Lore
Synopsis: A chilling glimpse into the first-person accounts from people who have witnessed horrifying, peculiar, extraordinary supernatural events and other unexplained phenomena that continue to haunt them.
Directed by: David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express)
Synopsis: Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode to come to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figured who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
