What films dropped the ball, meandered in their narrative or, worse, were simply dull to the bone? Let’s take a look back at 2014 to call out some of the films that should have done better…

Dave returns to shares the horror news of the week with news about Stephen King’s It, The Rock’s San Andreas and Sony’s rumored ideas behind Men in Black/22 Jump Street, Spider-Man and Ghostbusters.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! It’s a perfect world.

Eps 69 – Lucy / Under the Skin

Lucy (2014) embarks on a journey of the mind towing along tons of action and preposterous nonsense. The HNR grue-crew review and rip apart the latest film from direct Luc Besson starring the beautiful and talented Scarlett Johansson. Pretentious, silly and downright goofy fun, it is the Summer hit that had The Black Saint laughing his ass off. The problem is the film is not a comedy.

Dave ramps up the horror news of the week with tons of SDCC news, even more than what was on the SDCC Bonus episode of HNR. Joseph Perry returns with more on PiFan. And Thomas reigns in a review of another Scarlett Johansson film, Under The Skin.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week!  The show also contains Stump the Stain where The Black Saint answers questions provided by you, the HNR fan!

Lucy (2014)
Yes sir, Morgan Freeman collects a big fat paycheck. Not much else happens in Lucy from Luc Besson and Scarlett Johannson. Well, at least The Black Saint and his offspring found mountains of hilarity in this pretentious mess. The grue-crew bicker back and forth over what is the most offensive part of the film while Santos suggests it is the perfect unintentional comedy. Yikes!
