[Podcast] 10 Cloverfield Lane — Episode 154 — Horror News Radio

Seemingly out of nowhere Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures released  10 Cloverfield Lane, a tangentially related film to Cloverfield (2008) from J.J. Abrams and  director Dan Trachtenberg. The sci-fi / thriller hybrid features a tour-de-force performance from its cast,  Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and a tense Hitchcockian approach to the conflicts between the main characters locked in a bunker as the world above experiences an unknown calamity. The Grue-crew dissect and discuss the plot, the acting, the directing and…the surprises.

Dave is back with  the  HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing  information  about Spider-Man’s debut in the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer, the zombies of The Walking Dead setting up residence in Universal Studio’s California  theme park and Robert Kirkman’s latest foray into episodic television series with Outcast. In addition, the Grue-Crew announce a new giveaway teaming up with Anchor Bay Entertainment with Fear the Walking Dead The Complete First Season Special Edition.

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!
