What?! Horror News Radio covering another superhero movie?! I know some of you may be pretty Thor about that, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as The Grue Crew chums around Sakaar for Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi – the Kiwi director behind What We Do In the Shadows – puts his distinctive humorous stamp on the Marvel formula with charm and gusto anyone can appreciate. Hell, even Dave Dreher had fun with it! There’s still a bit of horror thrown into the mix, though. Peachfuzz returns as Creep 2 is discussed, with one Grue Crew member finding it to be a big surprise for the year. Mr. Dreher also provides Horror News of the Week revolving around Ash vs Evil Dead, a redux of The Twilight Zone and a new take on Pet Sematary!
As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans. You can always reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com or find us on Twitter: Doc Rotten | Dave Dreher | Thomas Mariani. Also, like us on Facebook and join the Horror News Radio Facebook Group.
