Thanksgiving horror is few and far between, y’all. So, any new holiday horror is always welcome. While we wait for Eli Roth to finally give fans what they have been dying for since the release of Grindhouse, we are always open to any and all Thanksgiving-based terror. Amityville Thanksgiving is exactly that.
You can tell that this one is going to be a campy mixed bag. Obviously, there is a huge amount of Jersey Shore injected into this one. The entire cast seems to be right off the shore. Which is already a strange choice, but a hilarious one, so I’m with it. I’m also a bit confused about where the Amityville bit is coming from. I was looking for the big haunted house but didn’t see that either.
The synopsis for Amityville Thanksgiving goes like this:
“A struggling couple visits a marriage counselor for a holiday as a last resort. Soon after, they realize he has sinister intentions that may make this thanksgiving their last.“
Well, that’s a wild synopsis too. It doesn’t seem very themed to the holiday. Like, I didn’t see any turkeys or pilgrims or anything that would scream Thanksgiving. Unless you have family in Jersey and are going to go visit them during the holiday, I don’t see how it would tie into holiday horror exactly.
All that said, I’m still going to give it a chance. Like I mentioned above, I have been really starved for some gobble, gobble holiday-based horror. So, if this is what we have to offer, let it be.
Get ready to “get stuffed mother clucker” when Amityville Thanksgiving arrives on November 8.
Stranger Things Season 4 Blooper Reel
As part of the TUDUM: A Global Fan Event releases, Netflix has given Stranger Things fans a nice little treat. I’m a huge fan of behind-the-scenes and blooper reels! I loved seeing the characters we know so well break the 4th wall when overwhelmed with a case of the giggles. Even the powerful Vecna couldn’t escape landing on the Stranger Things season 4 blooper reel!
Watch our favorite actors break character in this brand new blooper reel below. 🤣
We also found some other behind-the-scenes videos from Stranger Things Season 4 that we thought you would like. With the news of Stranger Things Season 5 being the end of the series, we’re watching all these videos before we have to say our final goodbye. I don’t think we’re ready for this story to end. 😭 Until then, have a laugh with our friends from Hawkins, Indiana!
‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry
We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.
The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.
There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.
The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:
As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.

‘The Winchesters’ Trailer Effectively Adds Another Chapter to ‘Supernatural’
If you thought that Supernatural was over after its very long and successful run, think again. The Winchesters takes us back into the world of Supernatural in a prequel. The series will go way back to tell the story of John and Mary who are the very reason that we have Sam and Dean.
The first trailer for the new series is looking particularly great and effectively adding to Supernatural lore.
The synopsis for The Winchesters goes like this:
Before Sam and Dean, there was John and Mary. Told from the perspective of narrator Dean Winchester, this is the epic, untold love story of how John met Mary, and how they put it all on the line to not only save their love, but the entire world..
The Winchesters premieres on October 7 via CW.
