00:50:25 – What Have You Been Watching – Bombshell Bloodbath
Doc is thrilled to share his experience at the Greensboro, North Carolina premiere of Brett Mullen’sBombshell Bloodbath, a promising independent film. The film has a heavy Italian cinema influence from the story structure to the cinematography to the music from Umberto. The film is full of zombie gore and zany antics and Doc sings high praises for the film and the director.

01:00:25 – Horror News of the Week for 02/24/2014
Dave Dreher starts off the Horror News of the Week with sad news relating the death of comic legend Harold Ramis, most famously known as Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters (1984). The gang shares their fond memories of seeing his many films over the years. Dave can barely contain Doc’s excitement as Thomas begins to talk about the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer from Marvel Entertainment and James (Slither) Gunn. Not to be one-and-done, Dave follows this up with news about Godzilla, the full shot is finally out there, the roar is now fully realized and the trailer is coming (it’s here!). Bates Motel on A&E is getting its own “after-show” much like The Talking Dead. Dave is thoroughly creeped out by the icky, spider-y chills in the poster released for Utero. Yuck!
