The Week in Horror: The Sublet, The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw, Candyman, Possessor

Welcome back, fiends, to your weekly dose of the biggest, most interesting tid bits of horror news from around the web! Have you been catching up on anything new? Started getting your Halloween decorations up? We hit up the local Spirit of Halloween this week and checked out the 2016 film The Sublet, which was pretty good over all. I had a few problems with the narrative here and there, but I’d still recommend checking it out. It’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime and I’m not sure how I never heard about it until this weekend.

Coming to digital October 6th is the new film The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw. “Set against the autumnal palette of harvest season in 1973, THE CURSE OF AUDREY EARNSHAW explores the disturbed bond between Audrey, an enigmatic young woman, and Agatha, her domineering ‘mother’, who live secretly as occultists on the outskirts of a remote Protestant village. As the community is besieged by a pestilence of unknown origin: children, fields, and livestock begin to die — yet the Earnshaw farm remains strangely unaffected. As mass hysteria sets in the village, the townsfolk commence accusations against Audrey and Agatha of witchcraft.”

So as anyone could have predicted, Candyman has been pulled from it’s October release date and delayed indefinitely into 2021. It doesn’t hurt as much as losing Halloween Kills, but hell its not the end of the world. Watch the trailer again and think of how fucking cool its going to be when we finally get it.

Weirdly, Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor has moved up its theatrical release to October 2nd, with no news on the digital release.
