Coming Soon from Gruesome Magazine


The Grue-crew have been together since launching Horror News Radio in April, 2013. The podcast grew out of a love for horror films and podcasting with Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani from the American Horror Story Fan Podcast & Monster Movie Podcast teaming up with The Black Saint and Dave Dreher from HorrorNews.Net. With HNR, the Grue-crew was born.

Over the years, we’ve met fans and colleagues growing into a larger family we’ve come to call the Grue-believers. The podcast offerings grew to include the Hannibal Fan Podcast, Decades of Horror: 1970s and HNR Extra. The Monster Movie Podcast became Decades of Horror: 1980s and Thomas has recently launched Decades of Horror: 1990s. Shows, conventions and film festivals followed as the family grew.

On October 1, 2015, the Grue-crew launched the Gruesome Magazine site with a large number of friends and co-hosts joining in on the fun: Joseph Perry, Joey Fittos, Christopher G. Moore, Jeff Mohr, Bill Mulligan, TJ Fowler, Adam Thomas, Paul Cardullo, Kieran Fisher and Chad Hunt. And more are joining each week. Gruesome Magazine has published nearly 1000 articles, reviews, podcasts, and contests in the past 12 months. We are covering horror conventions (Mad Monster Party, Monsterama, Scares That Care) and film festivals (Nevermore, Crimson Screen, GenreBlast, Wreak Havoc and Knoxville Horror Film Festival) with many more in the works for 2017.

Yet, there is something even bigger on the horizon. Something incredible is coming!

We can’t say what it is just yet but we know you’re going to love it.
