Wicked Weekend – September 7

by "Penguin" Pete Trbovich on September 07th, 2018 | |

Every Friday, we scare up a weekend entertainment guide for horror freaks. See what fresh meat’s on the hook for this weekend! It’s just 54 days until Halloween!

In Theaters This Weekend

The Nun

The much-anticipated entry in The Conjuring franchise is here. It’s a jump-scare laden mystery that continues the horror genre’s long tradition of Catholic-based religious horror.

Cold Skin

This Atlantic-set creature feature was already released in Spain in 2017, but is seeing a US release in select theaters now.

The Little Stranger

This atmospheric Gothic-style tale of a family on the decline and hiding a secret has been on our radar for awhile. Burgeoning director Lenny Abrahamson is taking on his first horror feature here, but he’s already made his mark with creative weirdness such as 2014’s off-beat Frank.

The Meg

See our Worth Watching review here.

This shark movie is turning out to be the surprise horror blockbuster of the summer, which just goes to show what Jaws already proved long ago: when it comes to sharks, the summer audience’s appetite is insatiable!

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

A comedy-horror farce in which a puppet auction turns into a bloodbath when all the puppets come to life to commit a massacre. It’s been getting a lot of underground buzz, indicating a sleeper cult hit.

Down a Dark Hall

This supernatural thriller takes place at a girl’s boarding school and stars Uma Thurman.

Summer of 84

A Stranger Things-inspired take on neighborhood kids who suspect their neighbor is a serial killer.

Unfriended: Dark Web

The horrors of social media get explored again in this stand-alone sequel to the 2014 film Unfriended.

Streaming

Boarding School

This budget schoolyard thriller has emerged quietly, with some reviews classifying it as offbeat, with some gore.

Blood Fest

This rowdy thriller about teens attending a horror festival gone wrong has been getting a lot of buzz. It looks like a fun movie made by people who appreciate horror fandom.

In Other News

Make your plans now for Fright Fest launching at Six Flags theme parks (CA, NJ, IL) starting September 15th. They’ll feature attractions themed after the 2018 Lionsgate film Hell Fest.

Salem Horror Fest will kick off the month of October, and you can start getting tickets now. The preview showing of the new Halloween reboot has already sold out, which tells you how in demand the event is.

Las Vegas, Nevada: A new escape room themed after the Saw franchise has opened in Las Vegas. It’s a whole live action experience which looks well worth a ticket! Full coverage here.

Looking for some fun horror entertainment that goes beyond the big screen? This weekend carve out some time to listen into the Nightmare 365 podcast where two brothers (Matt & Greg) explore the unexplained, mysterious and the spookiness that lives among us. Nobody believes them, but Nightmare 365 is the center of weirdness for the entire planet! They cover topics ranging from Bigfoot, UFO’s, Monsters, Unsolved Mysteries and all the weirdness. Check out their latest episode or binge all previous episodes on their YouTube channel.

Weekend Watchlist @ AllHorror

See our ever-expanding list of full horror movies hosted right here on AllHorror! We have over 320 movies and counting, adding more every week. From cult classics to obscure treasures to cheesy trash, if it’s legally online, we’re embedding it. For this weekend’s viewing may we suggest…

The Cloth (2012) – In case The Nun has you in the mood for yet more Catholic-themed horror, clutch your rosary beads and head over to this exorcism horror with a dash of action to it.

Spider Baby (1967) – AKA “The Maddest Story Ever Told,” this cult classic freak show lives up to its name and gets more charmingly corny every year. From its go-go theme song with animated credits to its baffling conclusion, this take of a backwoods dysfunctional family is nothing you expect!

Have a Horrific Weekend!
