Thor Ragnarok – Creep 2 – Episode 240 – Horror News Radio

What?! Horror News Radio covering another superhero movie?! I know some of you may be pretty Thor about that, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as The Grue Crew chums around Sakaar for Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi – the Kiwi director behind What We Do In the Shadows – puts his distinctive humorous stamp on the Marvel formula with charm and gusto anyone can appreciate. Hell, even Dave Dreher had fun with it! There’s still a bit of horror thrown into the mix, though. Peachfuzz returns as Creep 2 is discussed, with one Grue Crew member finding it to be a big surprise for the year. Mr. Dreher also provides Horror News of the Week revolving around Ash vs Evil Dead, a redux of The Twilight Zone and a new take on Pet Sematary!

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.

Eps 171 – Carnage Park

On this episode of Horror News Radio, Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani follow Scorpion Joe into Carnage Park. The latest film from director Mickey Keating brings a solid 70’s grindhouse flavor and great performances from Ashley Bell, Pat Healy and Alan Ruck. The film is tense with a fast pace and quickly puts Keating on the map as a director to watch. His style and approach is seen throughout the film. And we get another cameo from Larry Fassenden. Could it be any better?

This week’s Horror News of the Week is present by Thomas & Doc and discusses Javier Bardem rumored to be cast in Universal’s Frankenstein, the teaser for the second season of Ash vs the Evil Dead and Scream Factory releasing the Blu-ray for Exorcist III. Not only are the Grue-crew going to Dragon*Con this year, Doc and Gruesome Magazine writer Paul Cardullo are heading to GenreBlast Film Festival in Culpepper Virginia this August 19 – 21, 2016.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Dave DreherThomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! Oh, and don’t forget – Stump the Saint!
