"BRAINS!" zombies, zombies, zombies!

 

World War Z is the topic this week as co-hosts Doc RottenDave DreherSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr. and Thomas Mariani deconstruct, defend and destroy the watered down zombie-action blockbuster featuring the talents of Brad Bitt. ... Dave steps in to re-animate the podcast with this week’s horror movie news. There’s one more week remaining for the Stoker BluRay contest, catch the details and enter to win.

 

The Official HorrorNews.Net Podcast 
Episode 12 – World War Z 

 

World War Z is based on the novel from Max Brooks. Dave and Thomas quickly point out that the movie has very little to do with the book outside the name to much their chagrin. Dave shares his distaste for the matter while Thomas decides he is decidedly in the middle. Santos rants and raves while Doc faces off defending the film "as a summer action flick." The debate gets heated. The review is spoiler heavy and touches upon just about every aspect of the movie, from the director to Brad Pitt to the missing Matthew Fox to the zombies themselves.

 

David drops the horror news knowledge on us this week beginning with sad news of the passing of legendary horror/sci-fi author Richard Matheson. The prolific writer is responsible for classic horror entries from some of the best Twilight Zone episode to Kolchak: The Night Stalker to The Legend of Hell House to I Am Legend and so much more. Sad, sad news. Next up is the announcement that the Italian band Goblin is touring the States this October (2013) - the band provided music for Dawn of the Dead (1978), Susperia (1977) and more. Next is news and discussion about the found-footage Bigfoot movie, Willow Creek, from the unique director Bobcat Goldthwait. Last news from Dave is announcements from Brad Fuller about the second season of Hannibal. Then Doc jumps in with the rumors of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson starring in Terminator 5 - if true, can he salvage this troubled franchise as well?

 

If you are a fan of Stoker (or have yet to experience what all the fuss is about), then the next podcast contest is for you where you can score the Blu-Ray coming out this June. Winning the Blu-Ray is easy.

David drops the horror news knowledge on us this week beginning with news that HorrorNews.Net will be producing their own horror film called Dead Afterlife. Check the site, indiegogo and future podcasts for more news as the project progresses. The Conjuring is showing up on TV sets across the nation as the marketing campaign begins.

Found footage meets horror anthology again with V/H/S/2 as co-hosts Doc RottenDave DreherSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Thomas Mariani and Vixen discuss the sequel coming out June 6 on VOD and in July in a theater near you from Magnet Releasing. An impressive gathering of young horror directors unite to film a series of shorts that include zombies, aliens, ghosts, demons and a satanic cult. The grue-crew examine each of the four segments and the wrap-around story. After they recover from that exhausting debate, Dave jumps in with this week's horror news.

 

The Official HorrorNews.Net Podcast 
Episode 9 –  V/H/S/2 

 

Based on the original anthology concept from horror fan turned producer Brad Miska, V/H/S/2 has a pair of private detectives breaking into a house looking for their client's missing son but finding a series of horrifying films on VHS tapes...and so much more. The wrap around story, Tape 49, is directed by Simon Barrett.  Adam Wingard directs and stars in the first segment, Clinical Trials Phase 1, which turns out to be Vixen's favorite. Eduardo Sanchez and Gregg Hale tackle the next segment, A Ride in the Park, where a biker with a GoPro camera encounters the living dead. Gareth Evans and Timo Tjanjanto team up to direct the third segment, Safe Haven, where a documentary team attempt to expose the secrets of a notorious cult and their charismatic leader. This ends up the favorite of the entire group. Jason Eisener heads up the last segment, Alien Abduction Slumber Party, where a sleep over ends up in dire straights and bright lights. It's a relatively spoiler free rant on each chapter.

 

Dave starts off this week's horror news with Horror Decor's VHS pillow - a terrific addition to any horror collector's treasures. Next up is news that Terminator 5 is set to return to James Cameron's possession and that he might step up to direct the next sequel. Another high profile director is in the next news item: the makers of The Walking Dead have admitted to approaching George Romero to direct an episode of the hit AMC series only to have him decline. Adrian Garcia Bogliano's anticipated but oddly cast upcoming horror flick Late Phases is up next. What does the film have in common with Gilligan's Island? Listen to find out! Hannibal gets the green light for season two for the last bit of news this week to Doc's delight.
