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.

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.


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.
