Black Panther – Dead Shack – Episode 255 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew along with guest Yonathan Habtemichael return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a tour through Wakanda as they discuss Black Panther. After making a splash in Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) has to take the reins of his father and the title of Black Panther in the film that’s blowing up the box office. Then, The Grue Crew sees a faded sign on the side of the road and head over to the Dead Shack, baby! This independent zombie comedy is streaming on Shudder, but the question is… did we really shudder during it? Tune in for more! Dave Dreher gives us Horror News of the Week! This includes killer teddy bears, the return of Fangoria and Netflix gobbling up more films for us to consume! Plus, Thomas Mariani presents another round of Phantom Factor and Doc Rotten makes some big announcements. All for your ear holes!

Inoperable – Most Anticipated Genre Films of 2018 – Episode 252 – Horror News Radio

The diagnosis for The Grue Crew is a pretty mixed bag. The main topic for this episode of Horror News Radio is Inoperable starring Danielle Harris as a woman wondering an evacuated hospital. Not only does she have to face an oncoming hurricane, Danielle also has to face her time displacement that’s driving her up the wall. Then, The Grue Crew countdown the Most Anticipated Genre Films of 2018. Yes, it’s the other non-horror films of science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. Still, there’s plenty of weird monsters, gore galore and post-apocalyptic nightmares. Dave Dreher then dispenses Horror News of the Week, with horror Academy Award nominations, a new Steven Soderbergh horror film trailer and the passing of a great horror author. Thomas then wraps up with another edition of Phantom Factor. Award-winning filmmaker Christopher G. Moore is also in for all the fun on an extended Horror News Radio!
