Kuso – A Ghost Story – Atomic Blonde – Episode 226 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew suffer through Kuso (2017) so you don’t have to – oh, dear god, the horror. On the brighter side of horror, Thomas reviews A Ghost Story (2017) for some intellectual scares. To spice things up a bit, Thomas and Doc take a look at the theatrical release Atomic Blonde (2017) – John Wick meets James Bond with some gender bender action. Dave launches into the Horror News of the Week with a stunning new It trailer, Eli Roth documenting The History of Horror, and Kirk Hammet releasing a new book about classic horror movie posters, It’s Alive.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

Eps 168 – Clown

The Grue-crew gather to take a look at the long delayed US release of the Eli Roth produced flick, CLOWN. The film is from director Jon Watts and features Andy Powers (check out the Gruesome Magazine Interview here), Laura Allan and Peter Stromare. Watts, who also directed Cop Car which Thomas discussed on HNR episode 124, is set to direct Marvel’s first foray into Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe with Spider-Man: Homecoming. The effects are strong, the gore is plentiful and the lore is interesting, providing Watts a great venue to expand his short into a feature length film.

Eli Roth appears in Horror News of the Week as David Dreher reveals Roth’s upcoming directorial effort, the remake of Death Wish featuring Bruce Willis. New Line has announced another Conjuring spin off movies featuring The Nun from The Conjuring 2. And the Grue-crew take a look at the career of Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Fright Night, Green Room) who tragically lost his life this week -far too soon- at the age of 27.

Eps 130 – The Green Inferno

The cannibal horror film from Eli Roth finally ends is long journey to the big screen – courtecy of Blumhouse – as The Green Inferno paints the screen red with gruesome gore and bloodshed. The Grue-Crew grab a seat at the Blumhouse table to see what Mr. Roth serves up ready to devour the film, savoring the best moments and spitting out the less favorable attempts at humor & future film set up. C’mon, a stinger…for The Green Inferno…really? Thankfully, the one-and-only Ormon Grimsby is here to share his thoughts on the film as well.

Dave begins the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about The Black Mirror returning to Netflix, Meg singing a familiar director and Prometheus 2 gets a new title. In the What Have You Been Watching segment Doc, Thomas and Santos examine the two hour premiere of the FOX horror show, Scream Queens.

Review: The Green Inferno (2015) 

Who doesn’t love a good, gory-as-hell cannibal film to help choke down a large popcorn and soda at the local cinema?

The Grue-crew are here to dine on the Blumhouse Tilt release with special guest-host Ormon Grimsby.

Horror News of the Week for 09/28/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with Netflix ordering 12 new episodes of Black Mirror for its third season. Eli Roth is now the latest director set to helm the big-screen adaptation of the giant shark novel, MEG. Currently promoting his Sci-Fi Oscar-contenter, The Martian, Ridley Scott is suggesting that his next feature, Prometheus 2, will now go by the name Alien: Paradise Lost. Wesley Snipes is convinced that Marvel is still eyeing him for a return to the Blade franchise. In a recent interview, Nic Cage confesses that he regrets nothing…not even the remake of The Wicker Man.

Eps 31 – Ender’s Game

Ender’s Game is finally here, 28 years in the making. Gavin Hood directs Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley in the teen friendly Sci-Fi adventure.

Horror News Radio co-hosts Doc RottenDave DreherSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Thomas Mariani and Vixen have mixed feelings on the results. Some of it works for most all the grue-crew while many have issues with the pacing, the characters and, in Dave’s case, the film altogether. Doc tries to defend Ender’s Game with only moderate success.

Dave continues with the Horror News of the Week and shares his visit to Robert Kurtzman’s Mad FX Studio for a Halloween party where the guest of honor was none other than Freddy Kruger himself, Robert Englund.

00:04:00 – Review of Ender’s Game (2013)
The grue-crew venture into Sci-Fi territory this week as they review Ender’s Game from Gavin Hood. It does have aliens – well, almost. It does have bloodshed – uh, no, not really. Gasp, the horror in Ender’s Game is the realization of the effects of Harrison Ford’s character’s manipulation of the young cast. It is devastating, an emotional hit to the gut. While Dave zoned out pretty quickly, Doc and Vixen generally liked it while both Santos and Thomas had stronger issues.

00:47:56 – What Have You Been Watching: Dave meets Robert Englund
Dave was fortunate to attend a special Halloween event at Robert Kurtzman’s Mad FX Studio to support his school the Kurtzman Institute of Art. The guest of honor was Robert Englund the talented madman who plays Freddy Kruger – and is featured in over 140 films. Dave shares the event and his meeting of the modern horror icon.

00:52.31– Horror News of the Week for 11/04/2013
Dave rocks the horror news of the week beginning with news that Samuel L. Jackson has joined fellow 1408 co-star John Cusack for the screen adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell to be directed by Paranormal Activity 2’s Tod Williams. A pair of directors are up next with George Romero commenting about the lack of zombies in The Walking Dead and David Cronenberg cutting Stanley Kubrick below the knees for the lack of horror in The Shining. Thomas is not terribly interested in hearing about Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno which had footage premiere this week. Michael Biehn finally released a trailer for his film Hidden in the Woods that is truly disturbing. And the Archie comics are going un-dead with Afterlife with Archie.
