Eps 107 – Unfriended – Daredevil

Found footage gets anti-social in the new theatrical release, Unfriended. The film hits for its target audience but leaves the Grue-crew a little cold. The same cannot be said for Netflix’s Marvel TV series Daredevil however. Marvel is no longer content with DC holding the best in TV moniker as they best everything on the small screen with their gritty superhero drama.

Dave dishes a new plate of HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK with information about Star Wars VII, The Entity and The People Under the Stairs. Also, Doc announces a new contest from the cool cats at Ghoulish Productions featuring a kick-ass Vampire mask giveaway.

Review: Unfriended (2015) 

Director Levan Gabriadze and writer Nelson Greaves team up with Blumhouse to usher in a new age in horror where a vengeful spirit attacks her prey through Skype chat in the latest theatrical horror release Unfriended. Told entirely from the laptop screen of the lead protagonist, the film weaves its tale through video chat screens, text messages. Facebook posts and Youtube videos. The Grue-crew wrestle with the concept versus the execution in deciding if the film is successful or a flop.

Watch out DC, Marvel is stealing your television thunder with its latest hit Daredevil available now on Netflix.

But it is Vincent D’Onofrio who rises above the flames as Wilson Fisk, the villain often known as Kingpin. He kicks ass, literally.

 What Have You Been Watching: The Atticus Institute (2015) 

Seemingly out of nowhere comes a small, independent found footage possession thriller called The Atticus Institute. The film is far better than most of the wretched garbage that gets dumped into the theaters in January and yet it is relegated to VOD and DVD. This film is a rare treat, a movie that treats its subject matter with imagination and respect creating a thrilling and engaging horror tale. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten both join in to champion this early 2015 favorite.

Review: Starry Eyes (2014) 

Writer/Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer deliver their crowd funded, highly reviewed, low budget feature film Starry Eyes which examines a young woman’s desire to become a star and the crazy lengths she will go to get what she wants. The intimate script mixes elements of Faust, body horror and slasher film tropes into an interesting but uneven film. Alex Essoe is captivating in the starring role.

Review: The Guest (2014) 

HNR favorites Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett follow up their film, You’re Next, with The Guest about a mysterious stranger who arrives at the home of a family dealing with the loss of the oldest son who died overseas serving his country. Dan Stevens stars as David who has shocking and horrifying secrets. The film is energetic, exciting and bloody. It may become a cult classic.

The HNR grue-crew often share their love for actress Sharni Vinson who impressed in You’re Next. She is back with Patrick: Evil Awakens, a remake of the Richard Franklin film from 1979. Going into the film, the crew is a little nervous of what they will find wondering if Patrick is a good choice to be remade.
