First up for the Grue-Crew is the slow burn into survival horror Killing Ground from writer/director Damien Power. The Grue-Crew want to love Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets but just can’t do it on pretty colors alone. Dave launches into the Horror News of the Week with the loss of the character actor John Heard and a barrage of SDCC 2017 Horror announcements.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
