Arbor Demon – Baby Driver – Episode 222 – Horror News Radio

Award-winning director Christopher G. Moore joins the Grue-Crew this week for a look at forest demons and fast cars. First up is Patrick Rea’s second feature film Arbor Demon, currently playing on Hulu. Patrick is interviewed by The Black Saint in the first issue of the Gruesome Magazine quarterly print edition. Later, the Grue-Crew take spin with Christopher G. Moore’s favorite movie of the year, Baby Driver from director Edgar Wright. Perhaps it is a stretch for a horror podcast, but it is fine movie making. Dave drops into the Horror News of the Week with the release of the trailer for The Cult of Chucky, the surprise that Deep Blue Sea 2 is a thing, and a Grue-Crew fave is hitting VOD. Are you ready to finally see Night of Something Strange?  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
