Moving new TV spot from Apple combines horror and the holiday spirit

Moving new TV spot from Apple combines horror and the holiday spirit

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Sure, it’s sentimental as hell, but damned if this new spot doesn’t tug at the emotions. Entitled Frankie’s Holiday, it premiered Thanksgiving Day during NFL football. At least at our house, there may have been a little sniffling going on by the time it ended. Beyond that, it’s a great message presented with some truly cinematic production values. And man, the actor playing “Frankie” sure looks familiar. Anyone know who it is?

From all of us at Gourmet Horror, happy holidays! And stay scary, my friends.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: This Friday, just in time for Halloween, Netflix will gift us with six new episodes of one of the most innovative, chilling, and dark series of the past decade.

Experience this terrifying scene from ‘Stranger Things’ in 360-degree virtual reality

WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Genre fans got an unexpectedly lovely gift this summer when Netflix debuted its 10-part original series, Stranger Things, an homage to the 1980s sci-fi/horror of Spielberg and King. Now the producers have introduced a new wrinkle: virtual reality.

If you happen to have Google Cardboard, be sure to use it to watch the video above. And then, just for yuks, you can watch the cast of Stranger Things strap on a VR headset and experience truly immersive horror in the video below.


Stranger Things is billed as “a love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80’s.” It’s the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family, and local police search for answers, they’re drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces – and one very strange little girl.

Stranger Things stars Winona RyderDavid HarbourFinn WolfhardMillie Bobby BrownGaten MatarazzoCaleb McLaughlinNoah SchnappNatalia DyerCara BuonoCharlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.

Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Levy also served as director for two of the episodes.
