This week, the Grue-Crew face of a pair of religious-themed horror films, one with a priest suspected of murder and another with a nun who might just be a murderer. The first film this week is DON’T LEAVE HOME from director Michael Tully, featuring a young American artist who is approached for a commissioned sculpture of a sacred, isolated location in Ireland. The second film is ST. AGATHA from director Darren Lynn Bousman, featuring a young soon-to-be mother who looks to a convent to help her give birth to her child. Doc Rotten and Vanessa Thompson from Horror News Radio along with Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era and Rafe Telsch share their thoughts about this week’s awesome collection of streaming horror films.
