 Review: Cooties (2015) 

In a curious turn, the thoughts from the Grue-crew – and special guest-host Christopher G. Moore – about the new horror comedy Cooties are all across the board from loving it to absolutely hating it. Arguably more so than horror, comedy is extremely subjective with the Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion directed film appealing to Christopher who gives it a 4.0. On the other end lies Thomas Mariani, giving the film a 0.5. Insane. This is the review you want to listen to.

Review: Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) 

The Black Saint is known for being very public about his negative opinion about looking forward to seeing this film. Imagine the Grue-crew’s surprise when he reveals he enjoyed the latest chapter in the Insidious franchise, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3. The story may be about the new family (Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott) and their supernatural encounters, but the film belongs to Lin Shaye’s Elise. Scary with new threats without leaving familiar haunted faces behind, the film offers scares and shocks that offer a fun Summer horror film.

What Have You Been Watching: We Are Still Here (2015) 

Ted Geoghegan’s first full-length horror feature, WE ARE STILL HERE, is garnering rave reviews online and in film festivals – and new fans. The gory haunted house feature continues to get high praises from the HNR Grue-crew – well, most of them anyway. Uh. Oh. The biggest shock is the amount of blood shed throughout the film. It is great to see Barbara Crampton in another horror film along with familiar faces Larry Fassenden and Monte Markham.
