Gruesome Magazine Podcast – Episode 042
The Witch in the Window – Bonehill Road

Bonehill Road

Emily and Eden Stevens escape one violent situation only to dive headfirst into another. Terrified and alone they are stranded in the dark woods only to be chased into a horrific scene in a house or horrors. They must work together to get out alive. But what is worse? What is on the inside or out?

“It’s a little confusing, but kind of fun to watch. I can’t lie. … There’s just so much going on.” – Vanessa

“There’s a ton of gore in this.” – Jeff

“I did like Eli DeGeer and Ana Rojas-Plumberg as the mother and daughter. … Once they got on the road and you got to know them, I was really getting into their performances and their characters.” – Doc

Director: Todd Sheets
Cast: Eli DeGeer, Ana Rojas-Plumberg, Linnea Quigley

Release: Out now on VOD from October Coast and WildEye Releasing

The Witch in the Window

When Simon brings his twelve-year-old son, Finn, to rural Vermont to help flip an old farmhouse, they encounter the malicious spirit of Lydia, a previous owner. And now with every repair they make – she’s getting stronger.

“It’s got a story that unfolds in a way that you don’t really expect, especially when you get to the end. It’s a lot more touching than I thought it would be and very subtle in the way that it’s telling a haunted house story. It’s doing it in a unique way and that’s hard to find.” – Vanessa

“The ending had kind of a twist to it that I wasn’t expecting. I wasn’t sure where they were going to go with that and it gets a little sort of mind-bending in a few places.”  – Jeff

“I just really dug these characters (father and son). I dug these actors (Alex Draper and Charlie Tacker) and I dug this relationship and how they were trying to repair not only the house, but themselves, and that symbolism was really working.” – Doc

Director: Andy Mitton
Cast: Arija Bareikis, Alex Draper, Charlie Tacker

Release: Out now on SHUDDER
