[Podcast] Nails – Coco – Episode 243 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew needs some rubbing alcohol after Nails digged into them. Horror News Radio tackles this Irish horror film about a hospital bound woman (Shauna MacDonald of The Descent) haunted by a ghost. Thomas and guest Chad Hunt then celebrate the release of Coco, Pixar’s latest film focused around Dia de Los Muertos and talking skeletons singing their rib cages out. Muy Bueno! Dave and Doc Rotten even manage to sneak in a few bites at Attack of the Killer Donuts! Before all of that though, Dave’s got Horror News of the Week to unveil. Including stories about KISS teaming up with Ash to slay Deadites, Jason Voorhees hunting down Cheech & Chong and a new Children of the Corn film that we totally needed!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans. You can always reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com or find us on Twitter: Doc Rotten | Dave Dreher | Thomas Mariani. Also, like us on Facebook and join the Horror News Radio Facebook Group.
