Notable Horror Film/TV Releases For This Week (9/14/21-9/20/21)

Hey, it’s me–walking back into your life like Steve from Blue’s Clues. I’m trying to be around more even with my busy slate of work. Halloween is upon us, my friends. We love horror, suspense, and mystery so let’s talk about this week’s interesting releases.

Netflix dropped Nightbooks this week on their streaming service. Nightbooks is a horror series that’s kid-friendly in the same vein as something like the Goosebumps movies. The series stars Krysten Ritter, who is an evil witch who kidnaps a young boy and makes him tell her stories every night. Nightbooks is produced by Sam Raimi, who directed the Evil Dead franchise and Spider-Man trilogy.

The other intriguing release is the documentary focusing on horror icon Boris Karloff. Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster released yesterday in theaters with a limited release. The film examines Karloff’s illustrious 60-year career in the entertainment industry. Karloff starred in horror classics, such as Frankenstein (1931) and The Mummy (1932). These are the interesting releases for the week!

Rapid Fire Review–Hawkeye: Freefall #1 (2020)

I’m back! Well…for a limited time only. It’s hard to write when you’re a full-time worker and full-time graduate student. So, today, I will write a brief review of the first issue of Marvel’s Hawkeye: Freefall. The series was written by Matthew Rosenberg and drawn by Otto Schmidt. It went only for six issues total. I’m reviewing the story and writing as I don’t know shit about art.

In the first issue, Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, is living a good life. He’s dating a doctor and he has plenty of money. The comic does tie back to Matt Fraction’s stellar run on Hawkeye. Clint has become wealthy because he sold the apartment building that he stayed in from Fraction’s run. His life comes to a halt as someone is running around New York dressed as one of Clint’s former aliases–Ronin. Is it Clint or is it someone else?

Writer Matthew Rosenberg does a great job of capturing the essence of Matt Fraction’s run. Rosenberg crafts hilarious dialogue and it’s good to see Clint banter with his fellow Avengers. Along with these comedy elements, there are elements of mystery. The Avengers all want to know who this new Ronin is and they all think it’s Clint. Clint denies it and it seems to be that Clint is telling the truth. Ronin is going after villain The Hood and is trying to stop the villain’s operations. Why is Ronin going after him? Readers will find out in later issues. Also, the mystery of who Ronin is. In conclusion, this comic is a great start for a limited series that stars the avenging archer.

Overall rating: 3.5/5.

Streamer’s Journal #13

So, I wasn’t able to stream Ghost of Tsushima due to an update. Instead, I streamed Batman: Arkham Asylum or Batman-Return to Arkham–Arkham Asylum. However you wanna call it. I’ve streamed Arkham Asylum before on Twitch. Every time that I do, Twitch will never pull up the game right when you select the game you’re going to stream in your settings. I don’t get why it does that.

I breezed through the story for about 2 hours. I still have huge chunks left to play. It’s crazy how I still remember some of the riddle and trophy locations. The last time that I beat the game was like 2016. Then again, I have beaten it twice. More Arkham Asylum will come in the future.

Streamer’s Journal #12

I haven’t done a streamer’s journal in a bit. Last night, I streamed Fortnite for the first time in a few days. I didn’t stream as long as I wanted. However, I did have a great time. I started playing arena matches where the game gets competitive. I’m not good enough for competitive, though I did squeak out a top-5 finish. Be on the look out for more streamer’s journals.

Streamer’s Journal #11

I enjoyed our first spooky stream of the Summer of Spooks. I feel that it was a success. I had people chatting and interacting with the stream. Thimbleweed Park is such a great mystery game with elements of puzzles and comedy. I can’t wait to return to this game to see where the story goes. I will have more weird, horror games upcoming for the Summer of Spooks.
