What’s Up in Horror #9: The Bye Bye Man, Dead Snow, and Outcast


Welcome to What’s Up in Horror #9. A sampling of horror news across the mediums. From movies to books, to real life, and any bits in between that I can think of to list. This is by no means a comprehensive list of what’s happening, but it should whet your appetite!

Movies and TV

(covers/posters go to IMDB page.)

Movie Recommendation of the Week:

It’s -8 F here, and with all the crap going on with the American election, I thought something like Dead Snow would be the perfect recommendation. Zombie Nazis in winter, yeah? It’s a ridiculously fun movie from Norway, so give it a shot! The follow-up isn’t quite as good as the original, but both of them will definitely keep you entertained.

Synopsis: A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

 

 


Trailers to Watch:

The Bye Bye Man:  Three friends stumble upon the horrific origins of the Bye Bye Man, a mysterious figure they discover is the root cause of the evil behind man’s most unspeakable acts.

This is due to be released January 17th, 2017. I won’t lie, the trailer and synopsis both make it look fairly generic so I can’t say I’m truly looking forward to it.

TV Horror Talk

If you haven’t watched Outcast yet (available on Amazon, Cinemax), you need to give it a shot. It’s got a pretty unique premise. A guy constantly finds himself surrounded by those that are demonically possessed. It stars Patrick Fugit in the lead role of Kyle Barnes. There’s a mouthy preacher played by Philip Glenister that looks like he might develop into a very interesting character later on. I’ve only watched a few episodes so far, but it’s well-acted, well-shot, and generally interesting.
