Hello everyone! We're having some scheduling conflicts and didn't get a chance to record horror news this week. So we're bringing you some horror news here! We hope you enjoy!
Here are some of the top horror news this week
WHAT'S IN THE BOX?! Creepy Black 2,000 year old Coffin found in Egypt:
Archaeological digs around ancient Egyptian sites still have plenty of secrets to give up yet – like the huge, black granite sarcophagus just discovered at an excavation in the city of Alexandria, on the northern coast of Egypt.
What really stands out about the coffin is its size. At 185 cm (72.8 inches) tall, 265 cm (104.3 inches) long, and 165 cm (65 inches) wide, it's the biggest ever found in Alexandria. It's huge! It's creepy! It's probably contains a terrifying curse that will of epic movie proportions (we're talking a potential trilogy here) Apparently it hasn't been opened since it was sealed shut over 2,000 years ago (to obviously seal in a curse).
According to Science Alert, this is extraordinarily uncommon when talking about Egyptian tombs, as “archaeologists rarely find a final resting place that’s still intact like this one appears to be.”
Oh yeah! and let's not forget the fucking huge alabaster head discovered in the same tomb. Experts are assuming it represents whoever is buried in the sarcophagus, though that's yet to be confirmed.
SCIENTISTS ARE GOING TO OPEN THIS FUCKING THING AND DID NO ONE LEARN ANYTHING FROM BRENDAN FRASER!!!
We will update you guys on what these scientists find (if they live to tell the tale)
Sabrina the Teenage Witch Teaser
“Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.”

Whoa! Talk about major creepsville? Well, the show will take place in Sabrina's hometown Greendale.
A poster for the series was released on the 13th. The series is set to be an hour-long drama that will reimagine the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft. Twenty episodes have been ordered across two seasons.

All the original cast is coming back along with the director of the first Zombieland Ruben Fleischer! I'm a HUGE Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson fan and I can't wait to see them reprise their roles as Wichita and Tallahassee. Jesse Eisenberg will be back to play Colombus and Abigail Breslin will be returning as Little Rock.
The original writers, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, are also back to write the script.
The film will begin production January 2019 and has an October 2019 release date.
In Zombieland 2, “through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.”
Gavin Polone returns as producer, with Reese and Wernick executive producing.
