Eps 68 – The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge: Anarchy (2014) picks up one year after the Purge presented last year except this entry follows Frank Grillo as Seargent Leo Barnes, a man on a mission to purge but runs into two sets of characters in deep doo doo deciding to help them survive the night. Capitalizing on the premise of The Purge, Anarchy takes the action to the streets to the satisfaction of the fans but forgets to bring characterization along with it. Hollow? Maybe. Action packed? You bet. Check out the review from the HNR grue-crew.

Dave ramps up the horror news of the week with bloody bits and pieces about GrizzlyThe Overlook Motel and Mad Max Fury Road. Joseph Perry is now the HNR man-on-the-street in South Korea at the PiFan film festival with his reviews of Dead Snow Red vs Dead, Blood Glacier and other genre films.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, 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!  The show also contains Stump the Stain as recorded live at MonsterCon toy and comic convention in Greenville, South Carolina July 18-20, 2014.

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)
Thomas reminds his co-hosts that all but Vixen hated on The Purge last year giving the film a screaming 1 out of 5 before the grue-crew jump into their review of the its 2014 sequel, The Purge: Anarchy. Dave perhaps says it the best, “For a film with ‘Anarchy’ in its title, where is all the Anarchy?” Frank Castle…uh…Frank Grillo, rather, takes to the streets on Purge Night handing out violence, gore and death, but does the action hold enough interest to elevate the film and the now successful franchise.

Eps 67 – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) is the best example of a sequel done right! It perfectly expands and extends the marvelous Rise of the Planet of the Apes and intelligently provides the audience with a remarkable blend of action, drama, conflict and spectacle. The grue-crew gather to discuss the film and push for recognition of Andy Sirkis’ Oscar-worthy performance as Caesar.

Dave ramps up the news of the week with reaction to the teaser trailer for Horns and news of Suburban Gothic. Thomas shares his mixed review of The Strain in this week’s What You Have Been Watching segment while Doc champions the show and Santos despises it. Oh, the drama!

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)
Director Matt Reeves accomplishes with the sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes what most other sequels never even approach, he makes a better film. Empires Strikes Back, The Godfather II, the list that includes these films is incredibly short. To no one’s surprise, Doc, Dave, Santos, Thomas and Vixen all praise the film for its remarkable effects, it’s incredible performance from Andy Sirkis and it’s deceptively simple story that is thoroughly engrossing, compelling and fascinating. Check out this great discussion.

Deliver Us From Evil (2014)
The discussion of Deliver Us From Evil begins on a solid notes with Santos giving it a 3 star review but it quickly runs afoul as the rest chime in less and less favorable experiences. The film from Scott Derrickson is supposedly based on true events where a cop and a priest perform an exorcism on a possessed criminal. The film is atmospheric and looks great but the script is uneven and the acting is a mixed bag with Eric Bana’s New York accent amusing Santos and Thomas.

Witching and Bitching (2013)
This crazy film begins with a heist where the thieves are dressed as Jesus Christ, a green toy soldier and even Spongebob Squarepants, Insanity! The script follows two of them on the run with a 10 year old boy in tow. The plan is to escape Spain by traveling into France, but one town stands in the way: Zugarramurdi. This town is, of course, populated solely by witches, and this coven has their eyes set on the our lively groups of crooks. Doc, Thomas and Santos highly recommend the film.
