47 Meters Down – Kill Switch – Episode 220 – Horror News Radio

Award-winning director Christopher G. Moore joins the Grue-Crew to discuss the summer shark movie horror film 47 Meters Down. While the underwater and shark scene thrill everyone, the crew is divided over the film’s concluding switcheroo. Doc and Thomas have a difference of opinion on the sci-fi movie Kill Switch featuring Dan Stevens. Good luck with that one. Dave drops into the Horror News of the Week with a couple of trailers for Happy Death Day and Flatliners remake along with the announcement that Kevin Smith is directing a new horror anthology film called Killroy Was Here.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

Colossal (2017) – Episode 213 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew clash over the Nacho Vigalondo film Colossal, a killer Kaiju film with a kick-ass twist. It is also one of the most original films you will see this year. Thomas surprises everyone else on the podcast with a positive review of the Blumhouse film that snuck into theaters this weekend, Sleight from writer/director J.D. Dillard. Dave grabs the Horror News of the Week reigns with the sad news of the passing of legendary director Jonathan Demme, the man who gave horror fans Silence of the Lambs. He also shares news of M. Night Shyamalan’s next film, the sequel to Unbreakable and Split titled Glass, coming our way January 2019 and the announcement that David Fincher is all but signed on the dotted line to direct Brad Pitt in World War Z 2. Who knew that would be a thing? Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
