Eps 57 – The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The film introduces Harry Osborn as the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), Max Dillon as Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Aleksei Sytsevich as The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Is this shades of Batman and Robin syndrome?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Our favorite wall crawler returns in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 bringing with him Electro, The Green Goblin and The Rhino. To some this is all a big bag of nonsense, for others it is an emotional roller-coaster focusing on the story of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Some of it works. Some of it fails miserably. The grue-crew has strong opinions on it, ‘Nuff Said.

Eps 56 – The Quiet Ones

The Quiet Ones ushers the return of Hammer Films to the theaters after the success of their last film The Woman in Black. Doc and Santos dig the Seventies feels and Vixen returns to share her thoughts on the first horror film she has seen where she did not have to cover her eyes. Yeah, there is some debate on how scary it actually is. Sigh.

Doc discusses the slasher film Camp Dread in this week’s What Have You Been Watching segment while Dave checks in with the Horror News of the Week with news about Friday the 13th and Penny Dreadful.

Subscribe – iTunes – Facebook Group

The Quiet Ones (2014)
What the heck happened? A great idea and a great cast squandered for a mediocre horror film – although The Quiet Ones is a tight, entertaining little thriller. The scares are forced and few and far between but the acting is terrific with Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke getting most of the recognition. But what happened to the scares? Listen to the grue-crew investigate during the podcast to find out.

QuietOnes-Manifestation

Horror News of the Week for 04/28/2014
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with his favorite horror icon making it to serial television, Jason Voorhees with a Friday the 13th show. The trailer for As Above, So Below may have been the scariest thing about The Quiet Ones – d’oh.  Kevin Smith returns to horror with his Tusk cast in tow to create Anti-Claus, as holiday horror anthology. Maybe. Santos nearly throws up with the disclaimer that Universal’s Dracula Untold described as a “family fantasy film.” Oh, dear. Showtime is presenting the first episode of their horror show Penny Dreadful a full month ahead of its premiere date.

What Have You Been Watching: Camp Dread
Danielle Harris and Eric Roberts lead the cast for Harrison Smith’s slasher film, Camp Dread. Doc steps in with this week’s What Have You Been Watching segment to review the film trying to convince Santos he needs to give it a try if not for Roberts deliriously campy delivery then for the twist ending.
