Welcome, weirdos to the BrittNic Creations’ Horror Roundup! Each week I’ll be bringing you some news and products from the horror realm. The topics could include new clips from an upcoming horror film, gothic artwork, unique merchandise, and much more! There’s a mixture of horror goodies for everyone in the weekly Horror Roundup. This will always be a random post. I’d like to think that life and horror aren’t any fun without some absurdity included in them. Now, let’s get to the fun part!

Rotten Flamingos LTD – Haunting Office Supplies
The Horror Roundup isn’t complete without some spooky accessories, from horror icons on greeting cards to fun office supplies. I’ve recently become obsessed with Rotten Flamingos LTD after I first saw the card designs and officially after some weekly planning items caught my eye. What’s incredible are the prices that make grabbing a card or adorably haunted keychain so affordable! Supporting a small horror-themed business is always fun, so why not try this one?
Fantasia Film Festival Entries I’m Excited About
The Fantasia International Film Festival 2023, a festival fit for a Horror Roundup, has announced a huge variety of titles that will be making their mark on the big screen in Montreal this summer. But around here, there’s a few select titles that caught my attention and my horror-loving heart.
LOVELY, DARK, AND DEEP
Hotly anticipated directorial debut of Teresa Sutherland, screenwriter of THE WIND and a writer on MIDNIGHT MASS. Laced with stunning visuals, this ominously beautiful, deeply frightening nightmare is anchored by a captivating lead performance from Georgina Campbell. Campbell plays a park ranger in an isolated forest outpost, the site of multiple mysterious disappearances, and she is plagued by visions blending the past and present with something even more sinister. Also starring Nick Blood, Wai Ching Ho and Edgar Morais.
A disaffected student (Pavel Tabakov) follows an invitation to join “the elite” and finds himself forcibly transformed into a vampire, joining a supernatural ruling class that exercises an anonymous dictatorship over humans.
WHERE THE DEVIL ROAMS
This astonishing new feature from cult favorites The Adams Family (Toby Poser, John Adams, Zelda Adams), follows a family of traveling sideshow performers as they traverse Depression-era America on a bloody search for eternal life.
THE SACRIFICE GAME!
Jenn Wexler is back with her sophomore feature, filled with gore and lore, indie filmmaker Wexler penned this gripping and stylish ‘70s-set chiller involving school girls, power-mad killers and occult prophecy with partner Sean Redlitz.
‘Poor Things’ Yorgos Lanthimos Frankenstein Tale Teaser
From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn.
Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation. This Horror Roundup choice
Pedro Pascal in New Horror Film by ‘Barbarian’ Director
Pedro Pascal is in a horror film? SIGN ME UP…now, please. Horror Roundup including news that not only involves Pascal, but also Zach Cregger (Barbarian director), is a beautiful thing indeed. The film, Weapons, is the next to be directed by Cregger and has recently been acquired by New Line Cinema. Makes sense why such a big name has gotten attached to the project as well.
Details regarding Weapons, but the plot is a secret tightly held by those involved. A small amount was revealed, enough for my excitement to grow as it’s described as an “interrelated, multistory horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.” Damn, seriously sign me up already! This feels like something perfect for a combination of skills from Cregger and acting power of Pascal.
‘Teeth’ is Getting a Musical Adaptation
The Horror Roundup wouldn’t be at its best without some insane (yet brilliant) horror news. The cult classic horror film Teeth is headed to the musical stage! Yes, you read that correctly. Playwrights Horizon, a not-for-profit organization, announced the title will be arriving in February 2024. Directed by Sarah Benson, the musical has choreography by Raja Feather Kelly. Playwrights for the title include Anna K. Jacobs and Michael R. Jackson.
Dawn O’Keefe is an evangelical Christian teen with a powerful secret not even she understands – when men violate her, her body bites back. Literally. From Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winner Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop) and Anna K. Jacobs (POP!), Teeth, based on the cult classic film of the same name, is a fierce, rapturous, and savagely entertaining new musical crackling with irrepressible desire and ancient rage – a dark comedy conjuring the legend of one girl whose sexual curse is also her salvation.
