Howdy, folks! It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for the horror haul, our weekly round-up and one-stop-shop for all things horror. This week in horror news, Joe Hill is throwing around some seriously intense praise for Andy Muschietti‘s IT, calling the film one of the best horror movies ever made on par with The Thing and Jaws. I know, it’s a lot. Elsewhere, Wish Upon director John R. Leonetti settles the debate over whether Steven Spielberg or Tobe Hooper directed Poltergeist, Paramount and Bad Robot push the third Cloverfield movie to 2018, The Purge 4 lines up a new director with the help of creator James DeMonaco, and AMC recruits Fear the Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson to develop David Cronenberg‘s novel Consumed to series.
