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!
