[Podcast] Mother! (2017) — Episode 233 — Horror News Radio

Joining the Grue-Crew this week for the in-depth review of Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! is the one-and-only Caitlin Turner, the JLaw to Thomas’ Bardem. Theories and interceptions abound as the Crew and guest alike try to decipher what the hell Mr. Aronofsky was really trying to tell his audience. Woof! Doc steps in for Dave with Horror News of the Week starting off with the loss of two iconic horror greats: the terrific character actor Harry Dean Stanton of Alien fame and the indelible Famous Monster artist Basil Gogos.  Closing out the show Thomas has a few announcements about Stump the Saint.

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans.
