Review: Terminator: Genisys (2015) 

Some hate it, some love it. And it is no different with the grue-crew as Santos & Thomas face off against Doc & Vixen while discussing TERMINATOR: GENISYS. Every WTF moment is discussed and every time travelling trip dissected. But what this hell is up with Matt Smith? And does it even matter? The debate is one determining if the fifth Terminator film is a summer blockbuster or an over-hyped fan-fiction film. You decide!

Horror News of the Week for 07/06/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week with news of a remake of Stephen King’s Cujo; but, this time the film will be called C.U.J.O. WTF? There are plans to make an alternative sequel to Aliens with ALIEN IDENTITY making Newt the hero. All the directors for the upcoming anthology film HOLIDAYS are announced. Yay!? MTV’s SCREAM is a modest success and the second episode promises “Summer’s biggest bloodbath.” HANNIBAL is facing tougher times as both Neflix and Amazon have passed on picking the show up for a fourth season.

Eps 117 – i-Lived

Following director Franck Khalfoun to his most recent film, i-Lived, a tale of Faustian proportions. The Grue-crew dive into reviewing the DVD/VOD release (out July 3, 2015) from XLRator exploring the idea of a mobile app that has a dastardly, devilish agenda. Poor Josh (Jeremiah Watkins) has no idea what he is in store for. Dun-Dun-Duuunn!!

Dave dishes a new plate of HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK with the news about the passing of the original “Avenger” Patrick Macnee, Adam Green gets “Horrified” and Barbara Steele gets a big release. All that and something about MTV’s Scream series.

Review: i-Lived (2015) 

Having enjoyed the Franck Khalfoun remake of Maniac – which was covered on one of the early episodes of HNR, the Grue-Crew was intrigued by his follow up feature, i-Lived. Sadly, however, the results were not as enthusiastic. Oh, my. While Thomas just comes out against the film the remaining crew try – oh, they try – to find something positive to say. Still, the discussion is lively and Santos points out that the review on HorrorNews.net proclaimed it one of the best of 2015. So…what do we know?

Eps 110 – Maggie – Spring

Henry Hobson directs Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in the slow burn zombie drama MAGGIE dividing the Grue-crew between enjoying the film and being bored to tears. Justin Bensonand  and Aaron Moorhead’s SPRING succeeds far better with a romantic journey into creature feature, tentacle-filled mayhem. The insanity of Summer blockbusters takes a quick break this week for some quieter horror exploration.

Doc dishes a new plate of HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK with information about a possible return of Dr. Anton Phibes in FOREVER PHIBES, James Caan stepping back into horror with THE WAITING and Jason Voorhees slicing and dicing through MORTAL KOMBAT. Also, Joseph Perry joins in with his report from the  with reviews of UNFRIENDED and THE NIGHTMARE.

Review: Maggie (2015) 

To the Black Saint’s joy, MAGGIE finally mixes action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger with zombie cinema only to find that the film delivers a more introspective look into the transformation from human to ghoul and its effect on the family dynamic instead. His dreams of a killer Arnie vs Zombie action flick are crushed. Vixen doesn’t care and loves the film anyway. Ah, the drama.

What Have You Been Watching: Spring (2015) 

The Grue-crew explore one of the best and refreshing creature films of the year, SPRING. Surprisingly not everyone on the show is on board with this film from Justin Bensonand  and Aaron Moorhead featuring Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker. It’s When Harry Meet Sally blended with Lovecraft. Whatever you do, don’t listen to Doc.

Review: The ABCs of Death 2 (2014)

The HNR grue-crew step in to recap and review each of the 26 episode found in The ABCs of Death 2 diving into what they loved, hated, enjoyed and despised. The second whirlwind trip through the alphabet of death comes across far more cohesive and success than the first outing with a few strong winners and fewer losers. Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (F is for Falling) ,Larry Fessenden (N is for Nexus) , Jen and Sylvia Soska (T is for Torture Porn) ,Steven Kostanski (W is for Wish) and Chris Nash (Z is for Zygote) are only a few of the directors involved with this fascinating experiment in horror cinema.
