Greetings, HWA faithful, and welcome to the Horror Watch! Watchung is elated! Someone recommended PUMPKINS FROM PLANET P 2 to a distributor in Sandusky, OH! They’re going to show the film in Bronco Bob’s Theater and Burger Bar on April 1! It’s a one-night engagement at 12 a.m., and Watchung will raffle off some movie memorabilia during intermission. Just think, you could be the proud owner of Peter Pumpkineater’s first rubber suit (please, please, we need to get rid of it) or the crumbs from his corned beef sandwich, or his rubber suit, (I’m not kidding this thing has been sitting around the house for two months now, and it’s scaring my dog) or Tina Calabasa’s unused script, or the rubber pumpkin suit (the dog kept barking at it and I had to put it in the bathtub. Now, it grins at me while I’m on the toilet. Please, please take this thing. I’ll pay you real money).
While Watchung thinks about what else he can raffle and I wrestle the rubber suit of doom, let’s see what he’s found for us this month.
The CW has renewed SUPERNATURAL for a fifteenth season! Look for Sam and Dean this October.
THE WALKING DEAD has suffered another loss. Danai Gurira (BLACK PANTHER), who portrays Michonne, is leaving the show. Season 10 will be her last. She’s slated for a handful of episodes.
A television series based on Joe Hill‘s NOS4A2 will premiere this summer on AMC. It will consist of ten episodes and stars Ashleigh Cummings as Vic McQueen. Vic’s talent is finding lost things. When her son is abducted by the evil Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) and taken to the horrific world known as Christmasland, she must find him and get him back.
Now, on to movies!
Watchung is disappointed. There are only two horror movie releases this month! Good thing he made PFPP 2, or there’d be nothing to watch!
US—Friday, March 22, Rated R. Jordan Peele‘s second outing as director involves a family who encounter their own doppelgangers.
Stephen King’s DR. SLEEP will premiere on November 8 of this year. Ewan McGregor stars as an adult Danny Torrance, and Kyliegh Curran stars as Abra Stone, a young girl with the shining.
PUMPKINS FROM PLANET P 2 will appear in Bronco Bob’s Theater and Burger Bar in Sandusky, Ohio, on April 1. One night only!
THE FINAL WISH—Tuesday, March 19, Not Rated. A lawyer finds a cursed urn which can grant wishes.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese will executive produce a series based on the book, Devil in the White City, by Erik Larson. It chronicles the terrifying exploits of H.H. Holmes and will air on HULU.
The streaming format SHUDDER will produce a new TV version of the 1982 horror film CREEPSHOW (originally directed by George Romero and written by Stephen King). The show is produced by THE WALKING DEAD’S Greg Nicotero and will consist of six episodes. Segments of the series will include the following authors and stories:
* “By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill

NETFLIX, in conjunction with the BBC, will air a new DRACULA series. It will be written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (writers of SHERLOCK and DR. WHO). The series will consist of three 90-minute episodes.
DEVIL MAY CRY 5 will be released on March 8. Solve the mystery of strange demon attacks and hunt the creatures down as Dante, Nero, or the mysterious “V.” The game will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One formats.
That’s it for this edition of Watchung’s Horror Watch. Our favorite demonic pumpkin would like to remind you of two things. First, no entertainment, not even video games, could exist without writers. And, second, if there’s horror news out there, Watchung is watching!
