Happy New Year, Grue Believers! To celebrate, Horror News Radio is going Beyond… Skyline! Yes, the sequel no one asked for is here and it’s better than you’d think. Well, it’s at least better than the first one. Join Frank Grillo and the guys from The Raid as they kick major alien ass. Afterward, The Grue Crew look towards the future and countdown The Most Anticipated Horror Films of 2018, as voted on by you! There are ghastly ghosts, returning slashers and even… a few horror bent superheroes?! Hey, it’s 2018. Anything can happen at this point! Dave Dreher makes his triumphant return after being sick over the holidays with Horror News of the Week! There’s an animated King of the Monsters, giant sharks and Nic Cage swinging a sledgehammer at children. What’s not to love? Joining the Crew for all of this is South Korea correspondent & co-host of Decades of Horror: The Classic Era Joseph Perry! What a way to ring in 2018!
