Pacific Rim Uprising – Unsane – Episode 260 – Horror News Radio

Kaiju Kraziness is in full effect on Horror News Radio this week! First, we got Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to the Guillermo Del Toro robot-vs-giant monster battle movie. This time, John Boyega leads begrudgingly leads a group of cadets into training when a mysterious Jaeger suddenly comes to threaten the peace of post kaiju world. If that’s not enough plot for you, don’t worry. There are fifteen other subplots involved! After that giant blockbuster, The Grue Crew goes intimate for Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane. It’s divisive reception to the story of a victim of stalking (Claire Foy) finding herself locked in an institution. Some rather enjoyed this iPhone shot experiment. Others found it as nightmarish as the hospital itself. And not in a good way. It’s a Dave-less Horror News of the Week, with the trailer for Deadpool 2, an alternate cut of The Shining and the potential of a Star Wars horror film. You know guest Christopher G. Moore is excited! Finally, another round of Phantom Factor! Hazzah!

Strangers: Prey At Night – Episode 258 – Horror News Radio

Strangers: Prey At Night is the sequel no one was anticipating nor wanted. 10 years after the original and with none of the original cast or crew involved? It sounds like something destined to fail. Yet… The Grue Crew may have liked it more than you’d think. Strangers: Prey At Night isn’t the only film on the docket, though. The genre-lite escapades of Thoroughbreds is also up for discussion as genre favorite Anya Taylor Joy joins up with a fellow teen played by Olivia Cooke with sociopathic tendencies. Yet, the true monster may not be who it seems. Plus, there’s a small review for Disney’s big release A Wrinkle In Time, the film that has so much creativity bursting at the seams… but maybe doesn’t come together too well. Dave Dreher is out this week, so Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani and Yonathan Habtemichael have to take on Horror News of the Week by themselves. There’s plenty of stories of premieres from South By Southwest, a Jake Gyllenhaal horror film coming to Netflix and… Tommy Wiseau as The Joker? What a funny story, Doc. Ha ha ha! Then, Thomas closes things out by unmasking Phantom Factor! It’s a packed night, but worth every second.

Bigfoot just got a Predator-style makeover! Primal Rage breathes new life into The Missing Link as he hunts down a young couple lost in the woods with his hunting skills. Bows and arrows.

Dave Dreher has witnessed sightings of Horror News of the Week, detailing horror winning big at the Academy Awards, a potential new season of Dexter and a House Shark may be swimming in close waters!

Annihilation – The Lodgers – Episode 256 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew are joined by Paul Cardullo and Yonathan Habtemichael on a mission into The Shimmer to unravel Annihilation. Ex-Machina writer/director Alex Garland unleashes a heavy sci-fi premise that has bursts of horror… sometimes quite literally. Natalie Portman leads this expedition into a comet caused environmental abnormality that defies the laws of nature and humanity in ways we can’t quite fathom. Also, it’s rather pretty. Afterward, Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani, and Paul talk about the adventures at the Nevermore Film Festival. Not only the What Have You Been Watching gothic ghost story The Lodgers, but also of the 40th-anniversary screening for The Manitou in honor of Santos Ellin Jr. Dave Dreher regales us with Horror News of the Week about the premiere of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, a Stephen King poem being adapted for TV and another surprise film from Netflix. Capping it off, Thomas unleashes another round of Phantom Factor. Get ready to be ANNIHILATED… or at least entertained.
