Eps 160 – Zoombies – Game of Thrones

The Grue-crew wildly disagree about the Asylum film ZOOMBIES but have the best time discussing the shlock-fest on this episode of HNR. The Black Saint is all about it, calling it one of his favorite for 2016 while Vixen, of all people, steals the night with the best quote ever: “So much awful packed Into 1 movie.” The film is bonkers with zombie gorillas, koalas and giraffes – yes, zombie giraffes! When a flesh eating monkey throws bloody eyeballs at the camera like it’s flinging monkey-poo, you know you have a winner.

Dave drives the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing information about the Twin Peaks cast, the Friday the 13th game and the j-horror trailer for Sadako vs Kayako. In addition, the Grue-Crew announce that The Black Saint will join Doc Rotten and Bill Mulligan at the first HNR convention appearance for 2016: DragonCon (September 2 – 5, Atlanta, GA)! Oh, yeah, Doc and Thomas discuss…Game of Thrones.

Destroying the international box office with a monster take over $500 millions, JURASSIC WORLD over took the highest weekend box office gross from AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Review: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) 

Full of art, composition, tension and atmosphere, director Ana Lily Amirpour’s vampire film A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT spins a unique tale of desperation and horror. Shot in B&W, the Persian language but US shot film weaves a haunting and captivating story that tells more with its pictures than it does with its words. Thomas and Vixen adore the film while Doc finds himself in WolfCop territory once again.

The Human Race (2013) from director Paul Hough spins a combination of Battle Royale and Saw on its ears creating a terrifying tale that has Santos Ellin Jr. and Vixen singing its praises while Doc and Thomas are far less impressed.

The Human Race (2014)
“If you are lapped twice, you die. If you step off the path, you die. If you touch the grass, you will die!” The tag line sets up the story at its base, 80 strangers from a single city block are transported to a mysterious track where they must keep running to survive. The Human Race thrills Santos and Vixen with its gory thrills (exploding heads!) and interesting characters while Thomas is frustrated by the script, the redundant kills and the overplayed soundtrack. The HNR grue-crew go at, love it or hate it, the discussion is lively.

Doc is all about “The Mountain and the Viper” as Santos watches the scene in the background for the very first time. OMG! Oh, the bloody gore of it all.
