Review: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (2014) 

The final film in The Hobbit trilogy picks up directly where The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug left off with the dragon hammering down on Lake Town where Luke Evans takes down the beast. But his victory comes too late, and the townsfolk follow him to the foot of The Lonely Mountain where Thorin suffers from “dragon sickness” guarding his treasure. Before it all ends, there are orcs, goblins, a dwarf prince on a giant pig, elves, bats, mountain worms and – to The Black Saint’s surprise and elation – large eagles dropping bears into the battle.

What Have You Been Watching: The Black Mirror Christmas Special 

Thomas is thrilled to review the latest holiday special to the highly regarded UK “Twilight Zone” anthology series, The Black Mirror Christmas Special. Jon Hamm leads the cast in a show that explores the sinister side of technology in fascinating and inventive ways. Check it out with Thomas’ highest recommendation.

Horror News of the Week for 12/22/2014

Review: The Pyramid (2014) 

Producer Alexandre Aja delivers dangerous mazes, flesh hungry Sphinx creature and Anubis in his latest film The Pyramid. While the film delivers a bevy of gory effects but fails to bring much scares or horror. While Doc and Vixen find enough to entertain them for the 89 minute run time, The Black Saint can’t help but wonder why they remade As Above, So Below. Bwah hah hah.

What Have You Been Watching: Z Nation season finale 

Dave and Doc freely admit they have been following Asylum’s Z Nation airing on SyFy. Despite the low budget and cheesy approach to the show, Z Nation is consistently fun, in their opinion. The Black Saint, Thomas and Vixen refuse to believe them. So sad. Doc shares his thoughts on the finale of the first season of Z Nation.

Horror News of the Week for 12/08/2014
