Welcome to HORROR NEWS RADIO for April 24, 2023. JOIN US FOR Horror Movies News of the Week and Recommendations for May, 2023. All this, and more, coming up next…

I am your host Doc Rotten and this is HNR, the official GRUESOME MAGAZINE HORROR NEWS podcast. Back with me again are the scariest, goriest, bloodiest co-hosts on the ‘Net: Dave Dreher, the lead news writer at Gruesome Magazine and Crystal Cleveland, the Livin6dead6irl.


The Celebration officially begins with the review of EVIL DEAD RISE coming up next. The Grue-Crew are celebrating our 10 year anniversary. Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani, and Santos Ellin Jr. (The Black Saint) gathered together for the first time in April 2013 for the first episode of Horror News Radio, reviewing EVIL DEAD (2013).

What a ride it’s been, full of highs and lows, friendships and loss, as the Crew continued to explore the horror genre from retro classic with Decades of Horror to new releases with HNR and Gruesome Magazine.
