Hounds of Love — Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales — Episode 217 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew tackle the controversial and challenging Australian horror film Hounds of Love from writer/director Ben Young. For the What Have You Been Watching segment, they review the latest Captain Jack Sparrow adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell Now Tales. Dave dives into the Horror News of the Week with a short film from Neill Blomkamp titled Oats Vol. 1, an X-Men spinoff film that will be an all-out horror film, and a crazy combination of “sports” & “horror” dubbed “sporror” – not kidding, sigh.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans.
