We’re light on “hard” paranormal news, but lots of goodies in the spoof and entertainment sections this week. And so, onward!
2) And in spoof paranormal news (because India’s version of The Onion was too good to resist), ghosts are up-in-arms over a new tax levied on haunting.
3) Dan Akroyd is praising the new Ghostbusters, but it’s the year 2016, so someone somewhere will find something to gripe about a movie which hasn’t yet been released. Actress Leslie Jones has taken to Twitter to defend her character, who some are complaining is stereotyped and dated. I’m going to see the movie anyway.
4) The horror movie, The Witch, is so big, it’s already been spoofed with a fake playset.
5) And in Harry Potter news, JK Rowling’s next short story will focus on the segregation of witches and muggles in North America. The one in a series of four stories tee-up the upcoming movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It’s available on the Pottermore website.
