Hooked On Horror's Weekly Round-Up (30th March - 5th April 20)
Hey folks, hope you're all keeping safe out there. Hopefully our daily Quarantine Quiz and content is helping you a bit. As this week draws to a close, here's our weekly horror news round up. Greg Nicotero gave us all some wonderful nightmare fuel as he unveiled a huge Spider puppet for Series 2 of Creepshow.
"Even though filming for CREEPSHOW season 2 is delayed, I wanted to give you a little glimpse at one of the puppets IN PROGRESS before “the pause”. A wee bit more hair work and need to connect controllers for body and mandible articulation. It’s tough to get too close to this cause I am terrified of spiders but good therapy I guess. #creepshowtv #creepshow #animatronics"
Brahms: The Boy II headed home in digital download and VOD on Friday (3rd April) Mark Duplass offered us a update on a third Creep film. Unfortunately, according to him they are struggling to write a third at the moment. Sony Pictures released the news that every one of their major films (except two) would not be released until 2021. Unfortunately this included both Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Morbius. Tuesday 31st March marked the 27th Anniversary of Brandon Lee's passing. He was accidentally shot and killed on the set of The Crow after a stunt went wrong.
"It can't rain all the time."
