[Podcast] 47 Meters Down — Kill Switch — Episode 220 — Horror News Radio

Award-winning director Christopher G. Moore joins the Grue-Crew to discuss the summer shark movie horror film 47 Meters Down. While the underwater and shark scene thrill everyone, the crew is divided over the film’s concluding switcheroo. Doc and Thomas have a difference of opinion on the sci-fi movie Kill Switch featuring Dan Stevens. Good luck with that one. Dave drops into the Horror News of the Week with a couple of trailers for Happy Death Day and Flatliners remake along with the announcement that Kevin Smith is directing a new horror anthology film called  Killroy Was Here.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans.
