Alien: Covenant – Twin Peaks the Return – Episode 216 – Horror News Radio

The Alien franchise returns to theaters this past weekend with Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. While it is a direct sequel to Prometheus, featuring fan-favorite David (Michael Fassbender), the film suggests a new origin for the xenomorph species….and a plethora of gory, gruesome special effects! For the What Have You Been Watching segment, Thomas visits David Lynch’s Twin Peaks The Return on Showtime. Dave dives into the Horror News of the Week with the Sony announcement that Tom Hardy is Venom, George Romero is shopping Road of the Dead, and Universal has relabeled its upcoming monster franchise Dark Universe.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

Don’t Kill It – Stake Land II: The Stakelander – Episode 215 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew catch a pair of VOD horror offerings this week with Mike Mendez’ Don’t Kill It as the feature review and Dan Berk & Robert Olsen’s Stake Land 2: The Stakelander in the What Have You Been Watching segment. What they find, despite both being written by the Berk & Olsen team, is that mileage varies. One of the films lands on the positive side of the draw while the other dips into a less favorable reaction. At least there’s plenty of Dolph Lundgren! Dave sadly shares the Horror News of the Week with the passing of two legendary character actors: RIP Michael Parks and Power Booth. Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
