Stranger Things Season 2 (2017) – Jigsaw (2017) – Episode 239 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew is stuck in the traps of JIGSAW but doesn’t seem to be too bothered since he at least switched Netflix on to stream STRANGER THINGS Season 2. Yes, the show everyone’s talking about and the film series people cringe from vague memories of are here as fodder for the Horror News Radio crew. Joining them is award-winning filmmaker Christopher G. Moore, who suffers through the elaborate traps to get the sweet relief of his favorite show still running. But is everyone in agreement? Listen to Horror News Radio to find out! Dave Dreher also slips in some Horror News of the Week, in where we discuss the return of John Carpenter to the director’s chair, ghosts crossing with Helen Mirren in the Winchester trailer and Rob Zombie resurrecting The Firefly Family. Oh, what horrors indeed!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans. You can always reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com or find us on Twitter: Doc Rotten | Dave Dreher | Thomas Mariani. Also, like us on Facebook and join the Horror News Radio Facebook Group.

The Snowman (2017) – Leatherface (2017) – Episode 238 – Horror News Radio

Halloween comes in hot and cold for The Grue Crew. On one side of the pillow is the cool horrendous-ness of The Snowman, the latest thriller from Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In) that has everyone talking… for the wrong reasons. On the other side is Leatherface, the latest prequel for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise from the directors of Inside. The scariest surprise of all is that it may just be the better movie of the double feature but by how much? Dave Dreher brings home the Horror News of the Week with the passing of Italian filmmaker Umberto Lenzi, an Amazon zombie comedy series and the Hannibal death scene that was too gory for TV. Or was it just too expensive? Listen to Horror News Radio to find out!

Happy Death Day (2017) – The Babysitter (2017) – Episode 237 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew are joined by our very special guest Paul Cardullo as we discuss films that give us a bit of deja vu. First up is the surprise hit of the recent Friday the 13th weekend Happy Death Day. Our second feature is the gory romp The Babysitter which you can now stream on Netflix to keep yourself satiated before Stranger Things Season 2 arrives. Thomas also gives us a report from his trip to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida. Let’s not forget that Dave steps in with Horror News of the Week featuring the X-Men going spooky for The New Mutantsa news update about the upcoming Halloween film and a Friday the 13th fan film which may just be the best excuse for a sequel we’ll be getting for awhile. Spooktacular times are here again!

The Cult of Chucky (2017) – Gerald’s Game (Netflix, 2017) – Episode 236 – Horror News Radio

Special guest Sammie Cassell joins the Grue-Crew this week to review a pair of horror film playing on Netflix this October. The first of the two is the latest film in the Child’s Play series, The Cult of Chucky (2017). The second film is from director Mike Flanagan and legendary author Stephen King, Gerald’s Game (2017). Netflix is killing this season with a gaggle of genre films lining up as the channel gears up for the release of Stranger Things Season 2. Can they knock it out of the park? Dave steps in with a handful of horror news with two new trailers (Castle Rock, Pacific Rim Uprising), details about the third season of Ash vs The Evil Dead, and Joe Lynch tossing aside an R-Rated version of Mayhem for a full-uncut release. Check out more of Sammie Cassell on the Wreak Havoc Film Buffs Podcast.

Remembering the Black Saint – Episode 235 – Horror News Radio

On this special episode of HNR, the extended Grue-Crew share their memories and thoughts of Santos Ellin, Jr. (The Black Saint) who we suddenly lost on Thursday, September 21, 2017. For over 4 and a half years Santos joined Doc, Dave, & Thomas on HNR providing his views on horror films, his wit, and his laughter. Through his generosity, his spirit, and his kind heart (hidden under that gruff exterior), Santos had a profound effect on many of the Grue-Crew family, friends, filmmakers, and fans. Tonight we spend some time reflecting on those past years sharing touching moments, bursts of surprise and laughter he provided, and the warm hugs he shared with the horror community. The Grue-Crew include Joseph Perry, Chad Hunt, Joey Fittos, Adam Thomas, Jeff Mohr, Jerry Chandler, Bill Mulligan, and Sammie Cassell; family and filmmakers include Ivan Ellin, Lou Simon, and Patrick Rea.  Fans and listeners include Jeff Larrimore, NJ Horror, Andy L., Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff, Andrew Gillis, Dallas Nostromo, Brian S., Christine Collingwood, EJ Hardin, Carrie Cook, Damian Osoteo, Tim Colley, Carlo Villafuerte, Joshua J. Hardway, Yonathan Habtemichael, Sam Brutuxan, and Martin Avalos.

RIP Santos Ellin, Jr.
