Eps 154 – 10 Cloverfield Lane

Seemingly out of nowhere Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures released 10 Cloverfield Lane, a tangentially related film to Cloverfield (2008) from J.J. Abrams and director Dan Trachtenberg. The sci-fi / thriller hybrid features a tour-de-force performance from its cast, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and a tense Hitchcockian approach to the conflicts between the main characters locked in a bunker as the world above experiences an unknown calamity. The Grue-crew dissect and discuss the plot, the acting, the directing and…the surprises.

Dave is back with the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing information about Spider-Man’s debut in the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer, the zombies of The Walking Dead setting up residence in Universal Studio’s California theme park and Robert Kirkman’s latest foray into episodic television series with Outcast. In addition, the Grue-Crew announce a new giveaway teaming up with Anchor Bay Entertainment with Fear the Walking Dead The Complete First Season Special Edition.

Review: Terminator: Genisys (2015) 

Some hate it, some love it. And it is no different with the grue-crew as Santos & Thomas face off against Doc & Vixen while discussing TERMINATOR: GENISYS. Every WTF moment is discussed and every time travelling trip dissected. But what this hell is up with Matt Smith? And does it even matter? The debate is one determining if the fifth Terminator film is a summer blockbuster or an over-hyped fan-fiction film. You decide!

Horror News of the Week for 07/06/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week with news of a remake of Stephen King’s Cujo; but, this time the film will be called C.U.J.O. WTF? There are plans to make an alternative sequel to Aliens with ALIEN IDENTITY making Newt the hero. All the directors for the upcoming anthology film HOLIDAYS are announced. Yay!? MTV’s SCREAM is a modest success and the second episode promises “Summer’s biggest bloodbath.” HANNIBAL is facing tougher times as both Neflix and Amazon have passed on picking the show up for a fourth season.
