Horror is in the home and in the stars this week on Horror News Radio! The Grue Crew viewed the theatrical release Winchester! Decades of Horror: The Classic Era host Jeff Mohr to witness acclaimed actress Helen Mirren battle ghosts in this based-on-a-true-story horror film. Now, this is the only film planned… until Netflix threw us for a loop during The Super Bowl for the surprise reveal of The Cloverfield Paradox that came right after the game. Yes, The Cloverfield Paradox continues the mystery box ladened series with sci-fi/horror to… intriguing results. Speaking of the Super Bowl, Dave Dreher brings the big genre trailers to Horror News of the Week, along with news of Roxanne Benjamin making her debut and Sundance darling Hereditary blowing horror expectations out of the water. Thomas wraps it all up with another round of the game Phantom Factor and some listener feedback!
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.
