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.

Episode 81 – Exists – Interview director Eduardo Sanchez

Exists (2014) director Eduardo Sanchez joins the HNR grue-crew to discuss his found footage Bigfoot movie, his approach to film making and his earlier film The Blair Witch Project. After a brief revisit to his other films, the director dives into how Exists film was made, reveals some secrets behind the Bigfoot and shares his love for horror and monster movies. It is a great interview with a talented director with an authentic appreciation and passion for the genre. And, he knows his Bigfoot.

Dave shares the horror news of the week with a new FOX TV show from Ryan Murphy called Scream Queens while the MTV Scream show will NOT include Ghostface from the movies. Dwerp.

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!  This week we announce the winner of the contest to win a fantastic Halloween mask from Ghoulish Productions.

Film Review: Exists (2014) – Interview with director Eduardo Sanchez

Finally, we have a Bigfoot movie with some mighty pissed off Bigfoot in it. And all it right in the World. Doc, Dave, Santos and Vixen agree the film is incredible, worth the watch and may make it onto a few top 10 of 2014 lists. Director Eduardo Sanchez joins the show for a look at some behind the scene discussion about Exists, Bigfoot and the horror genre.

Horror News of the Week for 10/20/2014

Dave returns to bring you the Horror News of the Week with news of Ryan Murphy inventing Comedy Horror – oh, my – with his latest, upcoming TV show Scream Queen to some groan from the grue-crew. The reaction is mixed about the announcement that George Romero is backing his son’s (Cameron) directorial take on a prequel to Night of the Living Dead. Eli Roth is producing a remake of his film Cabin Fever – with the same script. More groans. MTV reveals that there will be no Ghostface in their Scream TV show. Groans continue. As much as we love Scream Factory, it saddens us greatly to discuss the recent screw ups, the one with Nightbreed in particular.
