[Podcast] Winchester – The Cloverfield Paradox – Episode 253 – Horror News Radio

Horror is in the home and in the stars this week on  Horror News Radio! The Grue Crew viewed the theatrical release  Winchester! Decades of Horror: The Classic Era host Jeff Mohr  to witness acclaimed actress Helen Mirren battle ghosts in this based-on-a-true-story horror film. Now, this is the only film planned… until Netflix threw us for a loop during The Super Bowl for the surprise reveal of The  Cloverfield Paradox that came right after the game. Yes,  The Cloverfield Paradox  continues the mystery box ladened series with sci-fi/horror to… intriguing results. Speaking of the Super Bowl, Dave Dreher brings the big genre trailers to  Horror News of the Week, along with news of Roxanne Benjamin making her debut and Sundance darling  Hereditary  blowing horror expectations out of the water. Thomas wraps it all up with another round of the game Phantom Factor and some listener feedback!

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