Apostle – Episode 296 – Horror News Radio

NIGHT OF THE COMET, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE top the horror news of the week and we remember the prolific character actor James Karen. The Grue-Crew review APOSTLE (2018) from director Gareth Evans who hides something far more supernatural than a dangerous cult in his harrowing period film. Join Dave Dreher, Doc Rotten, Christopher G. Moore, and Vanessa Thompson as we discuss Horror News of the Week and review the latest horror offerings.

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.
