Review: Harbinger Down (2015) 

HARBINGER DOWN represents a love for bringing practical effects to the big screen, a hands-on physical thing leaving CGI far behind. Effects artists Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alex Gillis, from StudioADI – Academy Award winners for Death Becomes Her and famous for their work on Starship Troopers and Alien films – craft a horror tale where an alien infects a ship trapped in icy waters. The film wears its influences out in the open from Alien to The Thing to The Blob and more. The cringe as they find the effects noteworthy but the script, direction and even the acting – aside from Lance Henriksen – lacking.

What Have You Been Watching: Cop Car (2015)

Thomas steps up to discuss the thriller Cop Car from the future Spider-Man director Jon Watts. The film pits a corrupt lawman, Kevin Bacon, against a pair of rebellious kids who take off with Bacon’s police car. Thomas recommends the film, not only as a primer for the director and his next high-profile project, but as a competent and exciting film all on its own. And, everything is better with a little Bacon in it, right!

Review: The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (2015) 

What happens when there is very little “Woman in Black” in The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death movie? According to Thomas and The Black Saint, “Ample time to take a nap.” For many of the grue-crew, the Hammer sequel proves to be a snooze-fest; while for a few on the show and for Mrs. Dreher (co-host Dave’s better half), the film offers some entertaining Gothic horror romance. Listen and decide for yourself…does the first horror film of 2015 have anything to offer?

What Have You Been Watching: Pieces of Talent 

Based on a recommendation of HNR listener and fan, Donnie H., Doc reviews the independent horror feature from North Carolina film maker Joe Stauffer. High praise for the director, the cinematography and for the film’s stars: David Long and Kristi Ray. The Black Saint backs Doc up with news that the film won multiple awards at the New York City Horror Film Festival in 2013 including Best Director and Best Screenplay.
