The Snowman (2017) – Leatherface (2017) – Episode 238 – Horror News Radio

Halloween comes in hot and cold for The Grue Crew. On one side of the pillow is the cool horrendous-ness of The Snowman, the latest thriller from Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In) that has everyone talking… for the wrong reasons. On the other side is Leatherface, the latest prequel for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise from the directors of Inside. The scariest surprise of all is that it may just be the better movie of the double feature but by how much? Dave Dreher brings home the Horror News of the Week with the passing of Italian filmmaker Umberto Lenzi, an Amazon zombie comedy series and the Hannibal death scene that was too gory for TV. Or was it just too expensive? Listen to Horror News Radio to find out!
