Eps 255 – Victor Crowley – Tragedy Girls – Horror News Radio

Play

The Grue Crew and guest Vanessa Thompson are stuck in the swamps of Louisiana with Victor Crowley hot on their tails. That’s right! Horror News Radio is returning to the Hatchet franchise to see what slasher kills and laughs writer/director Adam Green has in store. The gore and guffaws continue from there as the slasher genre get a young feminine perspective with Tragedy Girls. The 80s slashers have bred the Generation Z killers who slice for the followers. Then, Dave Dreher settles in for Horror News of the Week with stories of a Child’s Play series, Chris Columbus taking on Five Nights at Freddy’s and Metallica’s James Hetfield catching Ted Bundy.

The Evil Dead (1981) – Episode 130 – Decades of Horror 1980s

Play

“You bastards. Why are you torturing me like this? WHY?!” Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) ponders this aloud to the Deadites torturing them. Or maybe this question is more directed toward writer/director Sam Raimi hauling abuse at Bruce. Either way, The Evil Dead is definitely a punishing film, both toward its cast and the audience. Every time someone gets stabbed in the ankle or thrown into a bookshelf, both the actor and the audience feels it. Raimi started his illustrious career with this independent horror flick and it sure did shape where he’d go from here. There’s gore, mayhem and low budget craziness …

Speaking of the Super Bowl, Dave Dreher brings the big genre trailers to Horror News …

The diagnosis for The Grue Crew is a pretty mixed bag. The main topic for this episode of Horror News Radio is Inoperable starring Danielle Harris as a woman wondering an evacuated hospital.

Then, The Grue Crew countdown the Most Anticipated Genre Films of 2018. Yes, it’s the other non-horror films of science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. Still, there’s plenty of weird monsters, gore galore and post-apocalyptic nightmares. Dave Dreher then dispenses Horror News of the Week, with horror Academy …

From Beyond (1986) – Episode 129 – Decades of Horror 1980s

“It ate him… bit off his head… like a gingerbread man!” Dr. Crawford Tillinghast (Jeffrey Combs) is mystified by the powers of creatures coming from The Resonator in From Beyond. The second HP Lovecraft adaptation from writer/director Stuart Gordon didn’t blow up cult audiences nearly as much as Re-Animator upon its initial release. Yet, this feature adaptation is far closer to Lovecraft than most other versions of his stories out there. It’s a bizarre, disorienting and – above all – goopy take on the legendary sci-fi/horror author. One that’s clamoring for a dissection right here on Decades of Horror 1980s!

Cage reunites with the Taylor half of Neveldine/Taylor for Mom and Dad, as he and Selma Blair are compelled to murder their children. Hilarity ensues… or does it? Horror News Radio‘s Grue Crew is set out to determine. Along for the ride is filmmaker and special effects guru Bill Mulligan, who puts his kaiju knowledge to the test as he analyzes the Netflix anime film Godzilla: Monster Planet.

No, you didn’t read that number wrong. Horror News Radio is celebrating 250 episodes of scream-inducing, spine-tingling and point off trailing discussions! To celebrate, The Grue Crew are joined by Vanessa Thompson of the Gruesome Magazine Podcast for a couple of movies that show the diversity of the show. There’s Day of the Dead: Bloodline, a remake of the underrated George A. Romero zombie trilogy that… pretty much does the same thing with one crucial – and critically misguided – twist. Then, there’s the lost Mike Flanagan feature Before I Wake which recently arrived on Netflix. More dark fantasy than horror, this is a bit …

“You fool! You can not stop me! I am the ninja! No one, nothing can stop me!” Christie (Lucinda Dickey) is possessed by a killer ninja spirit and is out for blood. But how will this affect her career as a telephone poll worker and part-time aerobics instructor? Ugh, it makes you just wanna doing jumping jacks with weights, amirite? As one can clearly see, Ninja III: The Domination is a pretty silly movie. A blend of Flashdance, The Exorcist and every ninja movie out there. Then again, what else would you expect from Cannon?
