[Podcast] Green Room – Episode 161 – Horror News Radio

The Grue-crew are united in their love and appreciation for Jeremy Saulnier’s intense thriller GREEN ROOM. The must-see film grabs you by the boo-boo and never lets go as Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots struggle to survive the violent oppression of Patrick Stewart and his neo-Nazi cohorts. This film is brutal.

Thomas  drives  the  HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing  information  about the  trailer for Stephen King’s Cell, the remake of Puppet Master and the exit of Seth Grahame-Green from The Flash movie.  Doc provides his impressions on the first episode of the third season of Penny Dreadful and tears up remembering the host of B-Movie Cast, Vince Rotolo, who recently passed away.

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!
