Brace Yourselves Uglies: Halfway to Halloween is Almost Here

Published

on

I could write endlessly about my adoration for iconic The Boulet Brothers and the vivacious Ian DeVoglaer. From their fierce wigs to the tip of their stilettos, which rests gently on a pile of dead bodies, Swanthula and Dracmorda demand our full attention.

However, I am sure you aren’t here for my obsessive fanfiction. If you are, then this is the wrong website. You are here for news about the upcoming Halfway to Halloween special premiering April 25th!

Our Queens of horror are currently performing the Dragula Titans Live tour across the country. For those of us who unfortunately don’t get to have our souls consumed by The Boulet Brothers live, this special will hopefully fill the void in us until the next season of Dragula airs.  

Not only do we get to experience The Boulet Brothers in all of their glory. They are providing us with amazing guest appearances by co-producer David Dastmalchian (Suicide Squad), Kevin Smith (Tusk), Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek), Taran Killam (SNL), Mathew Lillard (Scream), Jorge Garcia (Lost), Steve Agree (Peacemaker), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Katya (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th).

If that doesn’t satiate your desire of all things depraved, some Dragula alumni are also making an appearance. The magnificent Kendri Onix, Koco Caine and Melissa Befierce will be joining the cast as well. All of this and the musical stylings of Twin temple, what more could us uglies ask for?

No one knows exactly what to expect form The Boulet Brothers, excluding that fact that someone will inevitably end up dead. We do have some hints from the most recent episode of their podcast Creatures of The Night.

While discussing the upcoming special Dracmorda and Swanthula gave audiences some hints of what to expect. They are calling the special a throwback to the holiday specials of the eighties. Only instead of them haunting us well into our adult years, looking at you Star Wars, I have no doubt this will be a spectacular event. We are expecting all of the drag, filth, glamour, and horror that we have come to crave.

This is the first scripted television project that The Boulet Brothers have attempted so far. We can only hope there are many more to come. Will this special have the same raw and viciousness that has made Dragula so iconic? Tune into Shudder and AMC+ April on 5th to find out!

If you want to see what else Swanthula and Dracmorda have been working on, check here. As always, make sure to check back here at I-horror for updates on The Boulet Brothers, as well as all things horror.

Watch ‘Terrifier 2’ Now For Free on Tubi

Published

on

Terrifier

Terrifier 2 is one of those releases that makes us want to watch it over and over and over again. That re-watchability has pulled us back in a few times. That is why the news that Terrifier 2 being on Peacock for free is so rad. Time to get in a few more rewatches.

The return of Art the Clown managed to bring a hell of a lot of good and bad press with it. The fact that people threw up in theaters… or maybe pretended to sure did make a lot of people come out to see the film. Of course, that is awesome news for the film and its hardworking filmmakers.

The synopsis for Terrifier 2 goes like this:

Resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County to terrorize a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.

If you haven’t watched Terrifier 2 yet what are you waiting for? You need to give it a look. It is one of those incredibly brutal slashers that have staying power.

Head over to Tubi and give Terrifier 2 a watch. If you hadn’t seen it before make sure to let us know what you think.

‘Hocus Pocus 3’ Has Been Confirmed At Disney

Published

on

Hocus Pocus was a huge hit. The sequel managed to do really well on Disney+ and scared up a whole lot of candy corn and celebration. It managed to be a huge hit over the Halloween season and we were pretty pleased with it ourselves.

Well, the great news is that Disney’s Sean Baily went ahead and straight up confirmed that there will be a third Hocus Pocus film. The involvement of new witches Whitney BaileyBelissa Escobedo and Lilia Buckingham is all but confirmed.

We could be looking at a stand alone series with the new witches involved or it could be possible that we may see a lot more of The Sanderson Sisters. We are really hoping to see the classic sisters. They are the heart of Hocus Pocus for me and that feeling isn’t going to be replaced anytime soon.

Hocus Pocus 2 went like this:

Three young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.

Are you excited about a sequel to Hocus Pocus? Are you hoping to see more Sanderson Sisters? Let us know in the comments section.

5 New Horror Movies You Can Stream Starting This Week

Published

on

I am old enough to remember when after a new horror movie’s theatrical release, you would have to wait six months before you could find it at the local video store. That’s if it was even released in the area where you lived.

Some movies were viewed once and lost into the void forever. They were very dark times. Fortunately for us, streaming services have cut that wait down to a fraction of the time. This week we have some big hitters coming to VOD, so let’s jump right in.


Renfield

Nicolas Cage (The Wicker Man) is really hard to put a label on. He has been in so many terrific films, while also ruining one of the greatest folk horror films ever made. For better or worse, his over-the-top acting has placed him in a special place in the hearts of many.

In this iteration of Dracula, he is joined by Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies), and Awkwafina (The Little Mermaid). Renfield looks to be a more lighthearted take on the classic Bram Stoker tale. We can only hope that the awkward lovable style of Hoult mingles well with the zaniness that Cage is known for. Renfield will be streaming on Peacock June 9th.


Devilreaux

Tony Todd (Candy Man) is one of horror’s greatest living icons. The man has a way of making evil sexy in an unmatched way. Joining Tony in this period piece is the marvelous Sheri Davis (The Amityville Moon).

This one feels fairly cut and dry. We get some old-timey racism which leads to a curse that haunts the land to this day. Mix in some voodoo for good measure and we have ourselves a horror movie. If you want an older feel to your new horror movie, this one’s for you. Devilreaux will be released to video on demand services on June 9th.


The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster

I have discussed my excitement over this film once before. Not only do we get a modern retelling of Dracula this week. We also get to look at Frankenstein’s monster through a new lens. It’s going to be a good week for classic literature fans.

This film has an amazing cast behind it. We get performances from Denzel Whitaker (The Great Debaters), Laya DeLeon Hayes (God of War: Ragnarök), and Chad L. Coleman (The Walking Dead). If creature features are more your thing, this is the film to watch this week.

The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster will hit video on demand services on June 9th.


Brooklyn 45

If you aren’t already subscribed to Shudder, now is the time to try out a free trial. The Shudder originals can often be hit or miss. But they normally include some of the standout horror films of the year.

Brooklyn 45 looks like it is going to be one of the good ones. Already receiving massive praise before its release, the hype on this one has me excited. Starring Anne Ramsey (The Taking of Deborah Logan), Ron Rains (Teacher), and Jeremy Holm (Mr. Robot). Brooklyn 45 is my most anticipated new horror film this week. Brooklyn 45 will hit shudder June 9th.


She Came from the Woods

Tubi has been playing its hand at making its own horror films for a while now. Up until this point they have been less than stellar. But after seeing the trailer for She Came from the Woods, I have hope that’s all about to change.

This film isn’t giving us anything new, it’s an old camp legend gone awry. But what it is giving us is William Sadler (Tales from the Crypt) right back where he belongs. Fighting ghosts with a shotgun and loving every minute of it. If you are looking for a new horror movie that is easy to digest, this is the one for you. She Came from the Woods will hit Tubi June 10th.
