[Podcast] The Best Horror Films of 2015 – Episode 143 – Horror News Radio

This is it, the final episode of 2015 and what better topic to discuss than The Best Horror Films of 2015. Doc, Dave, The Black Saint and Thomas compile their top horror films of the past 12 months and discuss what they loved about them as each dives into their list. A number of films appear on many of the lists – The Final Girls, It Follows and Krampus – while each list has its share of unique treasures and controversial additions. The Black Saint is relieved there is no mention of Area 51.

Dave  begins the  HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about the passing of Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead, the troubles of Rob Zombie getting NC-17 rating for his next flick 31 and the reveal of Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel’s Doctor Strange. In the What Have You Been Watching segment, Doc Rotten finally reviews the “controversial” film Big Game.

Co-hosts  Doc Rotten,  Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,  Dave Dreher,  Thomas Mariani  and  Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week!  Oh, and don’t forget – Stump the Saint!
