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.

Eps 120 – Ant-Man – Creep

In the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe theatrical hit, ANT-MAN, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) passes his technology and powers to the unlikeliest of heroes, sad-sack criminal Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in what is essentially Marvel’s heist comedy. The HNR grue-crew dive into the action to see if the latest offering is a minor success or a major flop.

Dave dishes a new plate of HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK with the news about the giant monster manga offering Attack on Titan, details about Paz De La Huerta’s law suit against the makers of Nurse 3D and a preview of Blumhouse teaming with Soska Sisters to bring horror fans the Hellavator. In the What Have You Been Watching, the grue-crew take a look at the found footage film CREEP.

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Dave DreherThomas 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!

Review: Ant-Man (2015) 

After the giant, over-the-top access of Avengers: The Age of Ultron, Marvel slides back into phase 1 like mode to bring audiences ANT-MAN. The film has a long history as writer-director Edgar Wright championed long and hard to bring Hank Pym and Scott Lang to the big screen. With Peyton Reed taking over the chair as director at the last minute, the film finally makes its way into theaters this weekend. The film is more intimate and sweet than most Marvel films offering a character driven action comedy with heart. How does the HNR grue-crew respond? Ah, that’s where the fun begins.


What Have You Been Watching: Creep (2014) 

Arriving to Netflix streaming this week is the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass found footage joint CREEP. The movie follows a film maker hired to chronicle the day in the life of a dying man only to discover the subject of his day’s work is a bit off, a bit twisted, a true…creep. Things quickly escalate as more and more terrifying secrets are revealed. As the grue-crew (outside of Doc) continue to harden their declining opinion on found footage, does the latest Blumhouse offering stand a chance? Perhaps it does…


Horror News of the Week for 07/20/2015 

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week with news of a popular manga inspired film series finally making its way across the seas as the grue-crew examine the trailer for Attack on Titan. Another trailer follows with the body horror sequel Contracted: Phase 2. In bizarre real-life news, actress Paz De La Huerta is suing the producers behind Nurse 3D for actions that she claims is ruining her career. Blumhouse makes the news again as they team with the Soska Twins to produce the GSN TV horror-themed game show Hellavator. SyFy never to be too far behind the pack announces their bringing the boy bands Backstreet Boys & NSYNC together for the horror film Dead 7. Ha!
