A forgotten Tom Hanks horror has bounced back into the spotlight
While acclaimed actor Tom Hanks is synonymous with films like Forrest Gump and Toy Story, one of the talent’s most underrated features falls under the horror scope. We’re talking about The ‘Burbs, of course — an ‘80s black comedy/horror extravaganza that has found its way back into the proverbial spotlight over on the r/horror subreddit. On the platform, Redditors took time out of their busy schedules to praise the film for its unforgettable performances and quotable pieces of dialogue. And although Hanks doesn’t mention the movie very often in interviews, it’s safe to assume that it’s still a treasured favorite. Who knew Hanks was a horror guy, eh?
James Wan makes an insane comparison between two polarizing projects
With a plethora of spooky cinematic projects under his belt, it’s worth noting that James Wan is a formidable presence in the horror genre. Now, with Wan’s latest viral sensation M3GAN set to hit theaters next January, the notable horror director has enticed genre diehards by comparing the upcoming project to a narrative that echoes an “Annabelle meets The Terminator” type of atmosphere. As if you can actually imagine that one. Nevertheless, Wan’s words are enough to keep horror fans hyped for the latest piece, which is on track to be one of the most memorable horror movies of 2023.
A brand new Wednesday image will leave your jaw dropped
As Wednesday (all pun intended) rapidly approaches, the entire entertainment world is looking forward to the arrival of Tim Burton’s aptly titled horror/comedy series, which features Jenna Ortega in the leading role. And ahead of the show dropping on Netflix tomorrow, the streaming giant shared an exclusive promotional image of Ortega, dressed head-to-toe as the iconic gothic character. In the aforementioned image, Ortega is sporting Wednesday Addams’ classic appearance — including black leather gloves and a black-and-white checkered dress. It’s a look that absolutely fits the bill and reminds us of Ortega’s upcoming performance.
Buckle in tomorrow, Wednesday streamers, for a brand new daily horror roundup.
