Hounds of Love – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – Episode 217 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew tackle the controversial and challenging Australian horror film Hounds of Love from writer/director Ben Young. For the What Have You Been Watching segment, they review the latest Captain Jack Sparrow adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell Now Tales. Dave dives into the Horror News of the Week with a short film from Neill Blomkamp titled Oats Vol. 1, an X-Men spinoff film that will be an all-out horror film, and a crazy combination of “sports” & “horror” dubbed “sporror” – not kidding, sigh.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans.

Eps 150 – Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller strike gold with their irreverent, fourth-wall breaking superhero comedy Deadpool, bringing the much-loved Marvel character to life – for the second time. That’s right, the wise-cracking, wise-ass Merc with a Mouth gets a second shot at widescreen stardom after the disastrous appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and succeeds beyond everyone’s expectations and dreams. The film crushes its competition on its opening weekend, breaking records to the delight of fans. The crew-crew, along with guest host Christopher G. Moore, share their love for Deadpool, its star, its marketing and their favorite scenes.

Thomas launches the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with information about The Invisible Man, Purge 3: Election Year and Ash vs the Evil Dead. In the What Have You Been Watching hacks, slices and bashes the mid-season return of The Walking Dead.
