Thor Ragnarok – Creep 2 – Episode 240 – Horror News Radio

What?! Horror News Radio covering another superhero movie?! I know some of you may be pretty Thor about that, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as The Grue Crew chums around Sakaar for Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi – the Kiwi director behind What We Do In the Shadows – puts his distinctive humorous stamp on the Marvel formula with charm and gusto anyone can appreciate. Hell, even Dave Dreher had fun with it! There’s still a bit of horror thrown into the mix, though. Peachfuzz returns as Creep 2 is discussed, with one Grue Crew member finding it to be a big surprise for the year. Mr. Dreher also provides Horror News of the Week revolving around Ash vs Evil Dead, a redux of The Twilight Zone and a new take on Pet Sematary!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans. You can always reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com or find us on Twitter: Doc Rotten | Dave Dreher | Thomas Mariani. Also, like us on Facebook and join the Horror News Radio Facebook Group.

00:02:37 – Review of The the Dark World (2013)
The grue-crew dramatically leap right into the review of the latest Marvel Studios megaplex monster, Thor the Dark World. While everyone blasts the villain of the film, the dark elf Malekith, as a weak excuse for a cinematic bad guy with a confusing, convoluted and unmotivated drive to return the universe to the darkness, they love the relationship between Thor and Loki. Director Alan Taylor strikes superhero gold with the Thunder God’s latest adventure in Asgard.

Marvel Studios and Netflix sign a deal to bring four 13 episode series to the online outlet include DaredevilJessica JonesLuke Cage and Iron Fist.
