[Podcast] Pacific Rim Uprising – Unsane – Episode 260 – Horror News Radio

Kaiju Kraziness is in full effect on Horror News Radio this week! First, we got  Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to the Guillermo Del Toro robot-vs-giant monster battle movie. This time, John Boyega leads begrudgingly leads a group of cadets into training when a mysterious Jaeger suddenly comes to threaten the peace of post kaiju world. If that’s not enough plot for you, don’t worry. There are fifteen other subplots involved! After that giant blockbuster, The Grue Crew goes intimate for Steven Soderbergh’s  Unsane. It’s divisive reception to the story of a victim of stalking (Claire Foy) finding herself locked in an institution. Some rather enjoyed this iPhone shot experiment. Others found it as nightmarish as the hospital itself. And not in a good way. It’s a Dave-less Horror News of the Week, with the trailer for  Deadpool 2, an alternate cut of  The Shining  and the potential of a  Star Wars  horror film. You know guest Christopher G. Moore is excited! Finally, another round of Phantom Factor! Hazzah!
