The Mummy (2017) – It Comes at Night (2017) – Episode 219 – Horror News Radio

The Dark Universe is upon us and thing ain’t looking too bright, sadly. THE MUMMY reboot of the Universal Monster franchise has finally arrived and the Grue-Crew is here to discuss the results. The lukewarm box office and piss-poor reviews are signs enough for what the Crew will share; however, award winning director Christopher G. Moore joins the crew this week to share his …love… for the film. Oh, dear. For the WHYBW segment, the Grue-Crew explore the A24 independent film release IT COMES AT NIGHT with a careful and critical eye. The film is catching flack for its marketing, Thomas insists to look at it without that issue in mind. Dave drops into the Horror News of the Week with the sad news of the loss of Adam West, the 1966 Batman himself. Other news includes the new Black Panther trailer and upcoming games from E3 2017 such as Transference from Spectravision.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
