[Podcast] Slender Man – Episode 283 – Horror News Radio

While The Meg gobbled up an ocean of horror related theatrical news this past week, SLENDER MAN was also released to theaters. With little fanfare and not much positive hype, the film manages to land at number 4 with an $11M haul. The regular Grue-Crew wisely choose not to partake in this particular cinematic disaster. However, guest hosts Joey Fittos and Chad Lab join Doc Rotten to gleefully tear the film apart…while managing to find a…few…things to spotlight. Join us for a special review-only episode about SLENDER MAN.

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you! Reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com. Also, please like us on  Facebook  and join the  Horror News Radio Facebook Group.
