Eps 179 – Dragon Con (2016)

The Grue-crew have been transformed. The Black Saint, Thomas Mariani and Doc Rotten – along with Decades of Horror friends Bill Mulligan and award-winning director Christopher G. Moore made their way to Dragon Con 2016 to participate on a number of the panels scattered throughout the Horror Track. Aside from Christopher G. Moore, a frequent Con goer who covered DragonCon 2015 for HNR and the Hannibal Fan Podcast, it was the first trip for the rest of us. Tonight, the crew share their journey.

Thomas steps in to give his thoughts on the latest genre bending flick from director Kevin Smith, the head-scratching adventure Yoga Hosers. While Thomas has been known to crap on awful films mercilessly, he has never yet given a film a zero. Oh, man! Santos chimes in on the second crap-fest of the week, Morgan which tanked at the box office failing to crack the top ten. Horror is in desperate need of a Blair Witch now!

Dave returns to announce the Horror News of the Week discussing a variety of items about Shin Godzilla‘s October release date, Amazon getting the TV series based on Tremors featuring Kevin Bacon and the crew react to the trailer for the “expendables of horror,” Death House. Doc and Gruesome Magazine writer Paul Cardullo are heading to Wreak Havoc Film Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina this late September/early October. Another announcement for the fall is that Horror News Radio will be at Spooky Empire in Orlando, Florida, October 7 – 9, 2016. Oh, boy! Plan your trip now.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani 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! (Brought to you by Gruesome Magazine)

Convention Report: Dragon Con (2016)

The Grue-crew have discovered their new home away from home. Dragon Con 2016 was amazing with great panels, fantastic guest, spectacular friend (old and new) and the most incredible Cosplay on the planet. Horror News Radio, Decades of Horror and Gruesome Magazine were represented in full as Doc Rotten, The Black Saint, Thomas Mariani, Bill Mulligan and Christopher G. Moore descended down on to the Horror Track. The track is managed by the tireless and inspiring Derek Tatum, setting up panels on Preacher, The Shining, American Horror Story, Ash vs the Evil Dead, Bates Motel, Lucio Fulci, Modern Horror Classics, Phantom of the Paradise, Hammer Films of the 1970s and the legacy of the Blind Dead. If you are a horror fan, the Dragon Con Horror Track is THE place to be.

Feature Review: Yoga Hosers (2016)

Kevin Smith returns continuing his Canadian adventures with Yoga Hosers featuring Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp. Thomas Mariani steps in to warn each and every HNR fan to think twice before stepping into this heaping pile of manure. Yeah, that’s right, he did not like it. But, just how much did he not like it. Oh, dear God. It’s brutal.

Feature Review: Morgan (2016)

While Yoga Hosers is a smaller release by comparison, Morgan landed in 2000 theaters this weekend to a paltry $2 million box office. Thud. The film tanked, hard. The Black Saint is the only crew member to suffer through the film. He is here to share his thoughts – in his usual Black Saint style.

Eps 175 – Suicide Squad (2016)

This week on HNR, the Grue-crew fan through Amanda Waller’s files on “the worst of the worst” with their review of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The DC Extended Universe delivers its third film which follows the events in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where many of DC’s villains are gathered together to defeat a new threat out to destroy the Earth. Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn lead the cast while Jared Leto’s version of The Joker dances around the edges. Award winning director Christopher G. Moore joins the crew to determine why “Gozer” is involved in the film – dwerp!

Doc launches into the Horror News of the Week discussing a variety of news where Breck Eisner may guide Jason’s return, Peter Block is reviving Pumpkinhead and Willem Dafoe joins Adam Wingard’s Death Note. 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 Culpeper, Virginia this August 19 – 21, 2016 and to Wreak Havoc Film Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina this late September/early October.

Feature Review: Suicide Squad (2016)

DC returns to the big screen with Suicide Squad in another desperate attempt to match Marvel’s success with its cinematic universe. The results are decidedly mixed as the film breaks box office records for August (beating Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) and the cast make up for a super-flawed script. Margot Robbie and Will Smith succeed in making Harley Quinn and Deadshot fun characters to watch while Viola Davis is ice-cold as Amanda Waller, proving her character is the true villain of the film. Jared Leto’s controversial interpretation of The Joker, while unique and electric, divides fan opinion of his version of the Crown Prince of Crime. Jai Courtney has fun as Captain Cold while Jay Hernandez nearly steals the film as El Diablo. Oh, and yes, Batman is in the film capturing Deadshot and chasing Joker & Harley during the introduction scenes. Fun, frustrating and flawed, Suicide Squad proves to be a heated discussion for the Grue-crew.

Eps 133 – Crimson Peak – Goosebumps

Guillermo del Toro returns to theaters with his Gothic romance horror ghost story masterpiece Crimson Peak. Visually the film is flawless, exquisite, lush and majestic. The story leaves some of the Grue-crew wondering where all the ghosts are. It is a divisive week on HNR. We know there’s something amiss when Vixen has to hide her eyes only once during the film.

Dave begins the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Walking Dead and Night of the Living Dead. One of these is not like the others. In the What Have You Been Watching segment the Grue-Crew review Goosebumps. Ermahgerd!

Review: Crimson Peak (2015) 

Perhaps the most anticipated horror film of 2015, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak is striking. The film aims for a very specific look and atmosphere achieving it with ease and confidence. The film struggles at the box office, sadly, because the marketing sold the movie as a full-fledged ghost movie. But, like Edith Cushing states early in the film, it’s a story that has ghosts in it. The result is pure Guillermo del Toro, mixing classic structure with modern cinematography. This week the Grue-crew share their reviews of Crimson Peak.

What Have You Been Watching: Goosebumps (2015) 

Jack Black leads the cast in Rob Letterman’s Goosebumps that peels back the covers of the fan-favorite horror book series for young readers. All the classic monsters are here led by the notorious and chilling Slappy the Dummy. The main creatures include the Yeti, the Wolfman and a gaggle of angry yard Gnomes. The film is fast, fun and family friendly – a great introduction to young film goers to the world of horror cinema. The Grue-crew have a blast reviewing Goosebumps.

Horror News of the Week for 10/19/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week starts off with the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Sean Cunningham, Kane Hodder and Tom Savini have all lent their names and input to various aspects of the upcoming Friday the 13th video game currently seeking financing through crowdfunding. On TV this week, Carol kicks major ass on this week’s episode of The Walking Dead in what Thomas calls “The best episode of the series.” Could this be? George Romero is planning on releasing another addition of the classic Night of the Living Dead except this one has recently re-discover LOST FOOTAGE. On New Discovery American, Ralph Sarchie is leading the monster-fighting charge on The Demon Files.

harbingerdown


Review: Harbinger Down (2015) 

HARBINGER DOWN represents a love for bringing practical effects to the big screen, a hands-on physical thing leaving CGI far behind. Effects artists Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alex Gillis, from StudioADI – Academy Award winners for Death Becomes Her and famous for their work on Starship Troopers and Alien films – craft a horror tale where an alien infects a ship trapped in icy waters. The film wears its influences out in the open from Alien to The Thing to The Blob and more. The cringe as they find the effects noteworthy but the script, direction and even the acting – aside from Lance Henriksen – lacking.

copcar

What Have You Been Watching: Cop Car (2015)

Thomas steps up to discuss the thriller Cop Car from the future Spider-Man director Jon Watts. The film pits a corrupt lawman, Kevin Bacon, against a pair of rebellious kids who take off with Bacon’s police car. Thomas recommends the film, not only as a primer for the director and his next high-profile project, but as a competent and exciting film all on its own. And, everything is better with a little Bacon in it, right!

The grue-crew dive into what makes this film hit the high moments with laughs and silly fun. Thomas spotlights co-director Jemain Clement in the role of Vladislav while Doc appreciates the understated comedy of Stu (as played by Stuart Rutherford).

Review: Kingsman The Secret Service (2015) 

Colin Firth kills it as the suave but deadly Harry Hart in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman The Secret Service as they take a satiric stab at every concept buried in the tropes of James Bond, Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer. Doc has admiration for Gazelle as played by Sofia Boutella. Thomas patiently waits for Doc to finish stammering about the effects and the comedy to discuss Samuel L. Jackson as the film’s villain, the billionaire named Valentine.

Horror News of the Week for 06/02/2014
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with news of Blumhouse locking in three future dates for a mysterious trilogy of films, perhaps co-chaired by Universal Studios. Let the speculation begin. Scream Factory is launching a Summer of Fear celebration this season with a trio of films broadcast online. Rumor mills are buzzing about Edgar Wright moving off of Ant-Man and onto the remake of Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Yeah. Right. Mr. Mercedes has the right stuff with a gaggle of familiar faces from previous Stephen King’s work weighing in. The Friday the 13th re-remake gets pushed back to November 13th, 2015.

The Quiet Ones ushers the return of Hammer Films to the theaters after the success of their last film The Woman in Black.

The Quiet Ones (2014)
What the heck happened? A great idea and a great cast squandered for a mediocre horror film – although The Quiet Ones is a tight, entertaining little thriller. The scares are forced and few and far between but the acting is terrific with Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke getting most of the recognition. But what happened to the scares? Listen to the grue-crew investigate during the podcast to find out.

QuietOnes-Manifestation

Horror News of the Week for 04/28/2014
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with his favorite horror icon making it to serial television, Jason Voorhees with a Friday the 13th show. The trailer for As Above, So Below may have been the scariest thing about The Quiet Ones – d’oh.  Kevin Smith returns to horror with his Tusk cast in tow to create Anti-Claus, as holiday horror anthology. Maybe. Santos nearly throws up with the disclaimer that Universal’s Dracula Untold described as a “family fantasy film.” Oh, dear. Showtime is presenting the first episode of their horror show Penny Dreadful a full month ahead of its premiere date.

What Have You Been Watching: Camp Dread
Danielle Harris and Eric Roberts lead the cast for Harrison Smith’s slasher film, Camp Dread. Doc steps in with this week’s What Have You Been Watching segment to review the film trying to convince Santos he needs to give it a try if not for Roberts deliriously campy delivery then for the twist ending.
