Wicked Weekend – August 24

by "Penguin" Pete Trbovich on August 24th, 2018 | |

Every Friday, we’ll try to scare up a weekend entertainment guide for horror freaks. See what fresh meat’s on the hook this week!

In Theaters This Weekend

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.

Slender Man

See our Worth Watching review here.

See our guest review at Horror Galore.

This creepy horror based on Internet urban legend has been the box office underdog so far, but meh, could still be worth a try.

The First Purge

While it made a big showing on its July 4th premiere, this latest entry in the Purge franchise is still proving to be a cathartic experience for politically-aware viewers.

Unfriended: Dark Web

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

In Other News

AllHorror is working in partnership with HorrorGalore, providing reviews of recent theater releases. Check out our reviews on The Meg and Slenderman.

This weekend, an Android game is on sale for free at the Google playstore. Why should we even mention it? Well, the game is called “Slayaway Camp,” and that’s a witty reference to the cult horror classic Sleepaway Camp.

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 300 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. A couple new additions to this collection we may suggest…

All American Zombie Drugs (2010) – Who doesn’t love a zombie comedy if they’re in the right mood (mind-altering substances help!)? With an IMDB rating of 3.5, this looks brain-damaging stupid.

Don’t Let the Riverbeast Get You! (2012) – A deliberately campy throwback to 1950s’ creature-feature horror. It’s got a 6.3 rating on IMDB and some warm reviews, so it’s worth checking out if you want a charming homage to late-night drive-ins.

Have a Horrific Weekend!
