[Podcast] The Final Girls — The Walking Dead Season 6 — Episode 132 — Horror News Radio

The surprisingly original and heart-felt horror satire The Final Girls hits VOD this week. The Grue-crew share their thoughts on  the meta-referential comedy praising its clever use of cliches, horror movie logic and slick transitions to weave together a fun, entertaining slasher horror film. It may be must-see movie magic from director Todd Strauss-Schulson.

Dave begins the  HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Countess Bathory and Gamera.  In the What Have You Been Watching segment Vixen leads the review of The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere. There’s a lot of walking dead this week!

Co-hosts  Doc Rotten,  Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,  Dave Dreher,  Thomas 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!  Oh, and don’t forget – Stump the Saint!

Review: The Final Girls  (2015)  

The premise for The Final Girls has its young star Taissa Farmiga traveling into the horror film that stars her deceased mother, Malin Akerman. Taissa and her friends must survive the movie to escape and return to the real world. The film makes good on its meta themes and goes well beyond that promise along by making the internal conflict of its lead strong, heartfelt and emotional. In a rare turn, the entire Grue-crew agree, making The Final Girls a must-see winner of 2015.

There’s a hoard of hungry mother-effn zombies trapped in a gorge nearby that places their life in Alexandria at risk. Rick takes charge in the way only Rick can – with tons of conflict and carnage. Wowzers! Vixen steps in to take the lead sharing what she loves and dislikes about this promising season opener.
