Review: WolfcopÂ (2014)Â
If you are a fan of Troma films and love a good werewolf pic, then WOLFCOP is the film for you. It is not, however, necessarily a film for every host on HNR. The film is high concept, low brow humor and gory special effects. What else would a fun-loving horror fan need?
What Have You Been Watching: Furious 7Â (2015)Â
James Wan delivers with his first foray into high action Hollywood blockbuster features with FURIOUS 7. The film has a tremendous cast featuring horror and John Carpenter favorite Kurt Russell in a supporting role. Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani discuss the direction, the stunts and the emotional send off to the late Paul Walker.

Horror News of the Week for 04/06/2015Â
Dave sharesÂ the Horror News of the Week beginning on a somber note with the passing of both Robert Z’Dar and Tom Towles. It seems David Lynch is out of the Showtime Twin Peaks revival. Too bad. From Tribeca comes the trailer for Stung. Wondercon provided Blumhouse the opportunity to push Insidious Chapter 3, The Gallows, Sinister 2 and more. The indy project Strange Blood works hard to capture your attention with its poster, stills and trailer.
