Ready Player One – 5th Year Anniversary – Episode 261 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew are celebrating an enormous milestone this week. Yes, five years ago Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and the late Santos Ellin Jr. recorded the first episode of Horror News Radio. This week, the Crew are joined by Christopher G. Moore and Caitlin Turner to talk Ready Player One. Steven Spielberg’s latest is a sci-fi action romp, but many famous horror characters can be spotted through the endless pop culture references. It’s a divisive discussion that’ll leave you torn asunder! Then, the gang counts down the Best Horror Films of the Last Five Years as voted on by you! Plus, Dave unveils Horror News of the Week all about Martin Freeman fighting zombies, new Stephen King adaptations, and Freddy Krueger cereal? Sounds delicious. Also, stay tuned for a spine-tingling edition of Phantom Factor! Hooray!

Inoperable – Most Anticipated Genre Films of 2018 – Episode 252 – Horror News Radio

The diagnosis for The Grue Crew is a pretty mixed bag. The main topic for this episode of Horror News Radio is Inoperable starring Danielle Harris as a woman wondering an evacuated hospital. Not only does she have to face an oncoming hurricane, Danielle also has to face her time displacement that’s driving her up the wall. Then, The Grue Crew countdown the Most Anticipated Genre Films of 2018. Yes, it’s the other non-horror films of science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. Still, there’s plenty of weird monsters, gore galore and post-apocalyptic nightmares. Dave Dreher then dispenses Horror News of the Week, with horror Academy Award nominations, a new Steven Soderbergh horror film trailer and the passing of a great horror author. Thomas then wraps up with another edition of Phantom Factor. Award-winning filmmaker Christopher G. Moore is also in for all the fun on an extended Horror News Radio!

The Worst Horror Films of 2017 – Better Watch Out – Episode 245 – Horror News Radio

Hope for the best, expect the worst! That’s The Grue Crew’s motto as Horror News Radio dives head first into The Worst Horror Films of 2017 with special guest Joey Fittos. Each panelist has a fair share of dreck to wade through. There’s talk of Tom Cruise battling wrapped up Egyptians, the latest return to the Amityville House and… whatever the hell Kuso was. What other films made the list? Listen and find out! The Grue Crew also discusses Better Watch Out, the yuletide home invasion thriller. It’s Home Alone with a twist… but maybe not the one you’re thinking of. Plus, there’s still plenty of Horror News of the Week to gab about. Mainly involving the trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, AMC’s historical horror mini-series The Terror and a remake of Romero’s Day of the Dead. What is this world coming to?
