Your Halloween 2022 List of TV Specials, Movies & Marathons



It’s almost Halloween and this year it feels like everything is back on track. First, we have a sequel to the spooky season’s quintessential movie, Hocus Pocus. Then there’s the annual Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror to look forward to, and an End to that Halloween franchise.

Take a look at what to look forward to this year and let us know what you’re planning to watch.

Hocus Pocus 2 (Disney+)

The Sanderson sisters are back and nobody’s ready. This sequel to the 1993 original has been just a rumor for years. But in 2022 it’s becoming reality for those subscribers of Disney+. The movie premieres on Disney+ on September 30.

It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.

Simpsons Halloween Special XXXIII

This year the people over at The Simpsons are boosting their Halloween special with two episodes! First, we have a tale titled “Not It” which we presume will parody the Stephen King classic. Then there is Death Note which pokes fun at the popular anime series of the same name. Unlike previous seasons this special will be two full episodes instead of the anthology style used in the past. The release date has not been announced, but look for it in October.

Terrifier 2 (Screambox)

This film has had a few production troubles, but it’s finally on its way to theaters on October 6. From what we can gather, the bloody sequel will then head over exclusively to the horror movie streamer Screambox sometime in October.

Halloween Ends (Peacock)

Michael Myers is having a rough time. Can you imagine if you were him and read the title of this movie? It seems so final. But audiences are here for this final chapter in the Blumhouse Halloween saga and lucky for us Peacock subscribers we can see how it all goes down while handing out candy at the same time.

AMC Fear Fest 2022 – Interview With the Vampire series premiere

Every year AMC blesses the airwaves with a great lineup of movies and specials. This year is no exception with the premiere of the series Interview With the Vampire. We are also getting Eli Roth’s History of Horror along with the streamer’s laundry list of scary classics that will stream throughout October.

Disney Channel’s Monstober 2022

Even the House of Mouse is getting in on the Halloween fun. Although the title of their seasonal specials has changed over the years, Monstober has always been a place for scary Halloween fun. This year, along with their catalog of special Halloween content, we are getting a sequel to Under Wraps.

This movie follows a group of teens who have to save their reanimated mummy friends Harold and Rose from danger. This means hiding them in plain sight all the while trying to save Rose from a villainous and vengeful nemesis named Sobek. Under Wraps 2 will premiere on the Disney Channel on September 25.

Syfy 31 Days of Halloween 2022

What better channel to give us spooky content for Halloween than Syfy? this channel has been a cable staple since it began. Remember when it was called Sci-Fi? This year the channel is known for taking Halloween seriously with endless horror movies, originals and series throughout October.

This year is special because we are getting a second season of Chucky from creator Don Mancini. The first season was a fan-fueled success with critics touting its praises too. Expect your favorite killer doll to return when season two premieres on the Syfy Channel on October 5.

TCM Horror Movie Marathons 2022

Turner Classic Movies is the go-to for vintage horror. In October they celebrate all things horror by featuring some of the best in vintage entertainment. From Forbidden Planet to The Haunting, TCM is the next best thing to your Criterion collection.

This year they have horror movies scheduled almost every day of the month, but on October 31 is when they let loose with the Universal monsters including Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Dracula.

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Getting a Bonafide Sequel With Legacy Leads



With all of the 90’s reboot rigamarole happening in horror cinema these days, it might be no surprise that a beloved thriller is finally getting the direct sequel it deserves.

The 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer is one of those guilty pleasures that sticks with you just long enough for you to want to watch it again every so often, and now it looks like it is getting another chapter. Moreover, its two leads, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr, are in talks to reprise their roles.

Director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Do Revenge) is reportedly taking the helm on this one.

Although nothing can be confirmed yet, Deadline is reporting that Neal H. Moritz might return as producer, with Leah McKendrick doing the screenplay. Scream writer Kevin Williamson penned the first movie.

Sony has yet to confirm any details about the project.

Amazon tried its hand at an original series adaptation, but sadly their attempt ended in failure after just one season.

In the original, a group of friends is sworn to secrecy after a hit-and-run in which they accidentally strike someone stumbling onto a desolate coastal road. They manage to keep their secret for years until one by one they become victims to a hook-wielding madman who may or may not know what they did.

A failed 1998 sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer starred Hewitt and Prinze Jr. and then an unrelated third movie, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006) was released with little to no accolades.

Deadline also reports that this new film, much like its Scream cousin, will see legacy characters introduced to new ones in this latest chapter.

We will keep you posted as this story develops.

Keanu Reeves Will Return As ‘Constantine’ in Sequel Directed by Francis Lawrence



Keanu Reeves will finally return as John Constantine in a film directed by Francis Lawrence once again. Deadline reports that the new film has been given the greenlight. The first film came out back in 2005 and introduced a very different version of DC’s Hellblazer John Constantine.

Keanu Reeves offered his first public comments regarding Constantine 2 going into development under Warner Bros since its announcement last year.

Reeves explained just how much he loved playing the role in the first movie, joking that he was similar to the titular character from Oliver Twist in asking the studio “Can I please have some more?”

“I don’t know if it was unfinished business but it was definitely a role that I loved. And I thought that Francis Lawrence, the director, did such amazing work. I loved playing that character, and I really enjoyed the film. I was like, [adopts Oliver Twist voice] ‘Can I please have some more?'”

This apparently became a regular conversation between Reeves and Warner Bros., with the studio regularly saying no to his requests:

“I kept asking almost every year. I’d be like, ‘Can I please?’ [and] they’d be like, ‘No, no!'”

Once the studio finally said “sure” and greenlit the sequel, Reeves and his team quickly got to work and are now “just starting to try and put a story together.”

Reeves was unable to contain his excitement, making it clear that he’s going to “try [his] darndest to try and realize that dream” of making this movie even with all the obstacles in the way:

“So it’s exciting. It’s almost like an open playground that we can hopefully cook something up and play in, and I guess get out of the playground and prepare a meal. But I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully it can happen. You don’t know how these things go. But I’m definitely going to try my darndest to try and realize that dream.”

The Constantine sequel will be directed by Lawrence and produced by Bad Robot with JJ Abrams and Hannah Minghella. Plus, Akiva Goldsmith is set to write.

Over the years since the release of 2005’s Constantine, Matt Ryan played a very authentic version of the blonde, British demonologist for a shortlived NBC series. Ryan has also given the character voice in animated films as well as portrayed the character in spinoffs to other DC worlds such as Legends of Tomorrow.

The synopsis for Constantine went like this:

As a suicide survivor, demon hunter John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) has literally been to hell and back — and he knows that when he dies, he’s got a one-way ticket to Satan’s realm unless he can earn enough goodwill to climb God’s stairway to heaven. While helping policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) investigate her identical twin’s apparent suicide, Constantine becomes caught up in a supernatural plot involving both demonic and angelic forces. Based on the DC/Vertigo “Hellblazer” comics.

Over the years we have heard buzz about a possible Constantine sequel several times, with no actual flame behind the sparks. So, it is definitely exciting to see the film actually moving forward.

Stay tuned for more Keanu Constantine details.

I am excited to see the sequel to Justin M. Seaman’s 2016 The Barn is now receiving its well-deserved physical media release, The Barn Part II (2022), which is now available on Amazon.

The film takes place after the original, as it’s been three years since Michelle (Lexi Dripps) escaped the events in Wheary Falls. However, she is still plagued with the questions of what truly happened to Sam and Josh (Mitchell Musolino and Will Stout) and the rest of her friends that disappeared on Halloween night. Now in college, Michelle and best friend Heather (Sable Griedel) are put in charge of the annual Gamma Tau Psi haunted house. Unfortunately for Michelle, some uninvited trick-or-treaters from her past come knocking…and this time, they’ve brought their friends…

The Barn Part II is stuffed with an array of horror personalities, actors, and actresses that we have all come to love over the years, including Ari Lehman (Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th), Linnea Quigley (Night of the Demons), Joe Bob Briggs and Diana Prince aka Darcy the Mail Girl (Shudder’s The Last Drive-In), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), and Doug Bradley (Pinhead from Hellraiser).

Judging by the trailer the sequel seems to capture the same 80s aesthetic as the original did and it soaks in the Halloween atmosphere, delivering those practical effects from a passionate director and team. I am looking forward to checking this one out.

Check out the trailer below.
