The Quiet OnesÂ ushers the return of Hammer Films to the theaters after the success of their last filmÂ 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 filmÂ Camp DreadÂ in this week’s What Have You Been Watching segment while Dave checks in with the Horror News of the Week with news aboutÂ Friday the 13thÂ andÂ Penny Dreadful.
Co-hostsÂ Doc Rotten,Â Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,Â Dave DreherÂ and Thomas MarianiÂ are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week!Â The Black Saint’s Horror Trivia Contest continues this week with the Anchor Bay Entertainment Blu-Ray Giveaway:Â Mr. Jones.
The Quiet Ones (2014)
What the heck happened? A great idea and a great cast squandered for a mediocre horror film – althoughÂ The Quiet OnesÂ 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 Â shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with his favorite horror icon making it to serial television, Jason Voorhees with aÂ Friday the 13thÂ show. The trailer forÂ As Above, So BelowÂ may have been the scariest thing aboutÂ The Quiet OnesÂ – d’oh. Â Kevin Smith returns to horror with hisÂ TuskÂ cast in tow to createÂ Anti-Claus, as holiday horror anthology. Maybe. Santos nearly throws up with the disclaimer that Universal’sÂ Dracula UntoldÂ described as a “family fantasy film.” Oh, dear. Showtime is presenting the first episode of their horror showÂ Penny DreadfulÂ 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,Â 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.
