Eli Roth has a heck of a deal with Travel Channel. The dude has not one but three new specials coming up. This includes two new series and a Halloween special. That must have been great for Roth.
His upcoming series’ Urban Legend and My Possessed Pet are both unique stories taking things to very interesting new places. One series focuses on anthology tales of focusing on classic urban legends and a story that focuses on deceased pets.
The synopsis for Urban Legend goes like this:
Based on widely shared “true” stories that happened to a friend of a friend … of a friend, each episode of URBAN LEGEND is a mini-horror film cinematically crafted to deliver a hyper-suspenseful and tension-fueled experience. Featuring lurking psychopaths, murderous mysteries, creepy creatures and twisting tales, these disturbing legends prey on our most deeply embedded fears to shock and terrify. This nightmarish anthology series, under the creative guidance of master of horror Eli Roth, showcases eight one-hour episodes of classic urban legends as you’ve never seen them before.
The synopsis for My Possessed Pet goes like this:
The series explores the true, terrifying tales of what happens when evil spirits, curses and demons take over family pets. Each of the four one-hour episodes will follow the chilling and deeply personal story of someone who has had their profound and loving relationship ripped apart by supernatural forces beyond their control. Using dramatic recreations, the real owners share how the beloved member of their family, that once had brought joy to their lives, transformed into the most horrible situation imaginable.
All that in addition to a Halloween special that Roth is doing with Zak Bagans called The Haunted Museum: 3 Ring Inferno.
My Possessed Pet premieres on September 30 and Urban Legend premieres on October 28. Roth and Bagan’s Halloween special The Haunted Museum: 3 Ring Inferno premieres on October 31.
New ‘Hellraiser’ Trailer Unveils Pinhead and Other Cenobites
The first trailer for Hulu’s Hellraiser is finally here! It gives us our first look at our new Pinhead as well as a couple of other Cenobites that are going to be the source of new and hellish nightmares. Jamie Clayton is playing Pinhead this time around and she looks to be doing it very well. That voice alone sent shivers up my spine. Good stuff!
In David Bruckner’s reimagining of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, we are getting a new approach to the classics. Even the box is very different and very organic in this iteration. There also seems to be an awesome organic approach to the wardrobe of the Cenobites. It is carved directly into the flesh, which I’m really loving.
The synopsis for Hellraiser goes like this:
In “Hellraiser,” a young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.
Hellraiser stars Odessa A’zion (“Fam,” “Grand Army”), Jamie Clayton (“The L Word: Generation Q,” “Sense8”), Adam Faison (“Everything’s Gonna Be Okay,” “Yes Day”), Drew Starkey (“Outer Banks,” “The Devil All the Time”), Brandon Flynn (“Ratched,” “13 Reasons Why”), Aoife Hinds (“The Long Call,” “Normal People”), Jason Liles (“Stereoscope,” “Rampage”), Yinka Olorunnife (“The Transporter”), Selina Lo (“Boss Level,” “Q8 Unleashed”), Zachary Hing (“Halo”), Kit Clarke (“Leonardo”), with Goran Visnjic (“The Boys,” “Timeless”) and Hiam Abbass (“Succession,” “Blade Runner 2049”).
Hellraiser arrives on Hulu beginning October 7.
Evan Peters is Absolutely Chilling in Second ‘Dahmer’ Trailer
The first trailer for Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story exceeded expectation. The insane detail that is being put into the 10-episode series is absolutely chilling. Plus, Evan Peters is going to a whole new level taking on the role of Dahmer. We are very pleased to announce that the second trailer for the upcoming Netflix series is just as depraved as the first one.
Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story creation fame is shaping Dahmer up nicely. Plus, its great to see all these amazing actors all really going for it. For example, Richard Jenkins playing Dahmer’s dad is going to be fascinating to explore.
Watch the trailer below:

The synopsis for Dahmer goes like this:
“Dahmer chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers (Peters), largely told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree.“
Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story arrives on Netflix beginning September 21 (Tomorrow).

‘The Midnight Club’ Trailer is a Perfect Introduction to Netflix’s Upcoming Series
Mike Flanagan constantly destroys me with his work. He is a master of combining monumental substance within the horror genre. His work on both Midnight Mass and The Haunting of Hill House has been insanely great stuff. His next up is an adaptation of Christopher Pike’s, The Midnight Club.
The trailer hits like a ton of bricks featuring a fantastic slowed-down version of The Toadies Possum Kingdom. A fantastic trailer with a great buzz about the trailer.
The synopsis for The Midnight Club goes like this:
“At a hospice with a mysterious history, the eight members of the Midnight Club meet each night at midnight to tell sinister stories – and to look for signs of the supernatural from the beyond. A new horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass), and Leah Fong, based on the creative work of bestselling author Christopher Pike.“
Midnight Club stars Iman Benson, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Annarah Cymone, Chris Sumpter, Adia, Aya Furukawa, Sauriyan Sapkota, Matt Biedel, Samantha Sloyan, with Zach Gilford and Heather Langenkamp.
The Midnight Club arrives on Netflix beginning October 7.
