Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Episode 214 – Horror News Radio

A bunch of a-holes gathers to discuss Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The Grue-Crew are joined by American Gods Fan Podcast host Christopher G. Moore and Decades of Horror The Classic Era host Chad Hunt to share their love for the continuing adventures of Starlord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Baby Groot. “I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!” Yondu steals the movie. There is no doubt Marvel has another huge hit on their hands. Dave grabs the Horror News of the Week reigns with a trio of movie trailers including It, The Dark Tower, and Blade Runner 2049. Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint! And what exactly is “Drop the Mustard?”

Fate of the Furious (2017) – Episode 211 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew rev up their engines for a brief detour this week as they cover the star-studded over-the-top action film THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS. The cast includes regulars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Dominic Torreto’s lovable rat-pack of street racers turned International spies. It’s Bond on wheels and all about … family. Jason Statham returns in a major way to punch things up while Kurt Russell makes a welcomed appearance and Helen Mirren cameos. Mad Max: Fury Road’s Charlize Theron is on board as Blofeld…er…Cypher, the film’s villain. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Thomas grabs the wheel in attempts to course correct HNR back into the world of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy with a look at Netflix’s Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return. The Black Saint and Dave ring in with their thoughts on Joel Hodgson’s reigniting the franchise as it looks satirically back a number for forgotten gems…well, maybe not “gems” but…nevermind, they’re bad…oh, so, bad. You know you’re in for a special time when it is “Avalanche” for the win.

Dave pilots this week’s edition of Horror News of the Week with the long-anticipated trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the rumor that Universal is eyeing Bill Condon to direct The Bride of Frankenstein, and the casting of Sam Elliot in The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot. HNR and Gruesome Magazine are heading to a number of horror conventions and film festival in the coming months Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival in May to Dragon Con in September.

Co-hosts Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! Oh, and don’t forget – Stump the Saint! (Brought to you by Gruesome Magazine)

Feature Review: The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s not a horror film but the Grue-Crew, on occasion, dive into the action pool to see what else lies in the cinematic wasteland of Hollywood offerings. The Fate of the Furious is just crazy enough to lure HNR’s attention in that direction. Combined with some genre favorites (c’mon Kurt Russell!) and the promise of incredible stunts, it’s too delicious to resist. Well, for everyone save Dave, who still refuses to join Dom’s family. High octane hilarity awaits!


What Have You Been Watching: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (2017)

Netflix continues to win genre fans’ hearts with the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Even Peter Cushing isn’t spared as they skewer his film At the Earth’s Core. Check out how Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return fares and stands up next to the original.

The HNR grue-crew dive into the ludicrous lupine lampoon, WOLFCOP, and review the box office smash from James Wan, FURIOUS 7.

Review: Wolfcop (2014) 

If you are a fan of Troma films and love a good werewolf pic, then WOLFCOP is the film for you. It is not, however, necessarily a film for every host on HNR. The film is high concept, low brow humor and gory special effects. What else would a fun-loving horror fan need?


What Have You Been Watching: Furious 7 (2015) 

James Wan delivers with his first foray into high action Hollywood blockbuster features with FURIOUS 7. The film has a tremendous cast featuring horror and John Carpenter favorite Kurt Russell in a supporting role. Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani discuss the direction, the stunts and the emotional send off to the late Paul Walker.

Horror News of the Week for 04/06/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week beginning on a somber note with the passing of both Robert Z’Dar and Tom Towles. It seems David Lynch is out of the Showtime Twin Peaks revival. Too bad. From Tribeca comes the trailer for Stung. Wondercon provided Blumhouse the opportunity to push Insidious Chapter 3, The Gallows, Sinister 2 and more. The indy project Strange Blood works hard to capture your attention with its poster, stills and trailer.
