Eps 64 – The Human Race – Game of Thrones

The Human Race (2013) from director Paul Hough spins a combination of Battle Royale and Saw on its ears creating a terrifying tale that has Santos Ellin Jr. and Vixen singing its praises while Doc and Thomas are far less impressed. Kudos to Eddie McGee for portraying a complex heroic character. “Run or Die!”

Doc steps in for Dave this week to bring the news of the week with Robert Englund (returning as Freddy Kruger for one night only) , Paranormal Activity 5 and Z Nation while Thomas revisits season four of  Game of Thrones in this week’s What  Have  You Been Watching segment. Doc and Santos also recap the highlights from the season seven premiere of True Blood.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., 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!  Be on the lookout for the HNR crew at the MonsterCon toy and comic convention in Greenville, South Carolina July 18-20, 2014.

The Human Race (2014)
“If you are lapped twice, you die. If you step off the path, you die. If you touch the grass, you will die!” The tag line sets up the story at its base, 80 strangers from a single city block are transported to a mysterious track where they must keep running to survive. The Human Race thrills Santos and Vixen with its gory thrills (exploding heads!) and interesting characters while Thomas is frustrated by the script, the redundant kills and the overplayed soundtrack. The HNR grue-crew go at, love it or hate it, the discussion is lively.

What Have You Been Watching: Game of Thrones & True Blood
Thomas is all about season 4 of Game of Thrones as he and Doc revisit the highlights of the year. Doc is all about “The Mountain and the Viper” as Santos watches the scene in the background for the very first time. OMG! Oh, the bloody gore of it all. While Game of Thrones gets high praises, the season 7 premiere of True Blood gets a far less enthusiastic review from Doc.

The Raid 2 (2014)
Rama (Iko Uwais) returns to kick serious ass with Gareth Evans’ action thriller The Raid 2. The action and thrills are breathtaking with neck breaking speed and agility. It is astounding to watch. Brian Salisbury, from Oneofus.net and Film School Rejects, joins the grue-crew to discuss the pacing, the plot and the characters in depth and detail. Everyone loves Hammer Girl and try to figure out if the film has more in common with Kill Bill or Bruce Lee’s Game of Death.
