Eps 73 Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014) is Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s return to Marv, Dwight and Nancy. It is all style over substance in glorious black and white with spectacular 3D and fun performances from Mickey Rourke and Eva Green. But Mr. Miller may have slid too far into seedy life behind Sin City without any meaning. 

Doc shares the horror news of the week with news of The Omen on TV, the series finale of True Blood and the trailer for Exists. Joseph Perry returns this week with more details from PiFan, the extraordinary fantasy film fest from South Korea.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas 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!  This week we announce that it is time to enter for a chance to win Anchor Bay’s The Walking Dead Season 4 Blu-Ray.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014) 
Thomas is livid about having to watch yet another Robert Rodriguez movie and even Santos is saddened to realized something about his darling Jessica Alba. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For drops quietly into the theaters this past weekend landing at number 8…NUMBER 8! Oh, my. The grue-crew stomp all over this disappointing entry. The film is visually stunning but intellectually void.

300: Rise of the Empire (2014) is hacking and slashing its gory way through the competition at the box office this weekend. The film is spectacular in its graphics, style and star Eva Green. While the grue-crew is not in 100 percent agreement, the conversation gets into the crazed violent, abundance of bloodshed and one specific line of dialog – which cannot be repeated here. If you have seen the film, you know the one!

Santos Ellin Jr. steps in for Thomas, who is off to SXSW, to provide this week’s Top 5 discussing five of his favorite horror movie quotes.

00:03:50 – 300: Rise of the Empire
While the film is all about the beefy men behind Greece and the 300, it is Eva Green as Artemisia that wins all the praise and love from the HNR crew. She is spectacular and the best thing in 300: Rise of the Empire. Santos is also all about the over-the-top bloodshed and action the film offers while Dave is impressed with the 3D. Doc, however, has issues but admits it may be more about the screening experience than that actual film. You need to listen to understand that debacle. The grue-crew review the film in all its 3D gory mayhem.

00:40:30 – Top 5 Horror Quotes
The Black Saint steps in for Thomas to bring his Top 5 for the week jumping on the crew’s favorite line from the film bringing his Top 5 horror movie quotes. Santos relishes the opportunity to re-enact each and every quote and then puts Doc and Dave on the spot to drop their favorite as well.

  1. Dead Alive (1992) – “I kick ass for the Lord!”
  2. John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) – “You gotta be f@%king kidding…”
  3. They Live  (1988) – “I came here to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I am all out of bubble gum.”
  4. Child’s Play 3  (1991) – “Don’t f@%k with the Chuck!”
  5. Phantasm  (1979) – “BOY!”

00:46:17 – Horror News of the Week for 03/10/2014
Dave Dreher starts off the Horror News of the Week with the teaser trailer for Fear Clinic from director Robert Hall. Sticking with trailers, up next is the red band delight that is Stage Fright from director Jerome Sable featuring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. The action-packed TV spot and kick ass stills for The Raid 2excite the crew. It looks like a 4K transfer of the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is on its way to theaters this fall.
