[Podcast] Kuso — A Ghost Story — Atomic Blonde — Episode 226 — Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew suffer through Kuso (2017) so you don’t have to – oh, dear god, the horror. On the brighter side of horror, Thomas reviews A Ghost Story (2017) for some intellectual scares. To spice things up a bit, Thomas and Doc take a look at the theatrical release Atomic Blonde (2017) – John Wick meets James Bond with some gender bender action. Dave launches into the Horror News of the Week with a stunning new It trailer, Eli Roth documenting The History of Horror, and Kirk Hammet releasing a new book about classic horror movie posters, It’s Alive.  Closing out the show Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
