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!
