No, you didn’t read that number wrong. Horror News Radio is celebrating 250 episodes of scream-inducing, spine-tingling and point off trailing discussions! To celebrate, The Grue Crew are joined by Vanessa Thompson of the Gruesome Magazine Podcast for a couple of movies that show the diversity of the show. There’s Day of the Dead: Bloodline, a remake of the underrated George A. Romero zombie trilogy that… pretty much does the same thing with one crucial – and critically misguided – twist. Then, there’s the lost Mike Flanagan feature Before I Wake which recently arrived on Netflix. More dark fantasy than horror, this is a bit more of a positive diamond in the rough. Dave Dreher takes on Horror News of the Week for an Insidious/Sinister crossover, a trailer for the 10th entry in the Hellraiser franchise and Critters coming to the small screen. Then, Thomas introduces a new game show segment to cap off this momentous occasion called Phantom Factor.
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.
