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!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Episode 246 – Horror News Radio

Reach out. Can you feel that? Is that… Horror News Radio?! Oh yes it is! Of course, Horror News Radio is known to stray off the titular path of the genre, but this is a pretty special movie to do that for. Star Wars The Last Jedi has fans as divided as the two sides of The Force. Some say it’s the best entry in the saga yet. Others are demanding it be removed from the Star Wars canon. Where does The Grue Crew lie? Well, take a listen as Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani are joined by Christopher G. Moore and Joey Fittos to discuss the new chapter in a galaxy far far away. Of course, there’s some Horror News of the Week before that. Dave Dreher is out this week, but Doc & company still give the news its fair due. There’s Fox being bought by Disney, horror repping at the Golden Globes and a long lost Mike Flanagan film finally being accessible. Listen in on this extended Horror News Radio episode!

Wish Upon – War for the Planet of the Apes – Episode 224 – Horror News Radio

Dave launches into the Horror News of the Week with the devastating loss of the legendary George A. Romero and Academy Award winner Martin Landau.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
