Review: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (2014) 

The final film in The Hobbit trilogy picks up directly where The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug left off with the dragon hammering down on Lake Town where Luke Evans takes down the beast. But his victory comes too late, and the townsfolk follow him to the foot of The Lonely Mountain where Thorin suffers from "dragon sickness" guarding his treasure. Before it all ends, there are orcs, goblins, a dwarf prince on a giant pig, elves, bats, mountain worms and - to The Black Saint's surprise and elation - large eagles dropping bears into the battle.

 

What Have You Been Watching: The Black Mirror Christmas Special 

Thomas is thrilled to review the latest holiday special to the highly regarded UK "Twilight Zone" anthology series, The Black Mirror Christmas Special. Jon Hamm leads the cast in a show that explores the sinister side of technology in fascinating and inventive ways. Check it out with Thomas' highest recommendation.

 

Horror News of the Week for 12/22/2014 

Doc steps in to bring you the Horror News of the Week with news of Hannibal Season 3 recasting a key supporting - or, is that guest - role: Mason Verger. Michael Pitt is out and Joe Anderson is in. Sad news follows with the passing of Billie Whitelaw who made a lasting impression as Mrs. Baylock in The Omen (1976). Last up is news that Justin Lin from The Fast and the Furious franchise is now in the director's chair for Star Trek 3.

"Below the crypt lies death's waiting room...the Vault of Horror." Milton Subotsky and Amicus return with another horror anthology The Vault of Horror, a direct follow up to Tales from the Crypt (1972). Roy Ward Baker steps in to take the director reigns from Freddie Francis bringing his own distinct but similar style with improved angles and composition with a more humorous tint. The blu ray also brings the film to the States for the first time uncut.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 9 – Vault of Horror (1973) 

 

The Vault of Horror brings five new tales to the big screen inspired by and adapted from the EC horror comics from the 50's, four from Tales from the Crypt and one from Shock SuspenStories. The stories include "Midnight Mess," "The Neat Job," "This Trick'll Kill You," "Bargain in Death" and "Drawn & Quartered" with a collection of character actors from the 70s: Terry-Thomas, Daniel Massey, Anna Massey, Curd Jurgans, Michael Craig, Glynis Johns and Tom Baker. This release marks the first time the film is presented uncut where at least four scenes are restored. While the film does not feature a Crypt Keeper nor Amicus anthology mainstay Peter Cushing, the film does continue the revenge themed terror and horror that makes these films so special. "Everything that makes life worth leaving!"

"You were cruel and mean right from the start, now you can truly say you have no heart." Peter Cushing as Arthur Grimsdyke leaves a horrifying Valentines card for his murderers in Poetic Justice, one of the fantastic stories in the classic Amicus Anthology film Tales from the Crypt (20172). Inspired by the EC Comics in the fifties, Milton Subotsky pens a memorable, creepy tome featuring a deadly Santa, an antique with a deadly touch, a maze of death and more.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 8 – Tales from the Crypt (1972) 

 

Tales from the Crypt is not the first horror anthology, it is not even the first from the British film company Amicus, but it may be the best remembered - if not, it should be. Drawing inspiration directly from the horror comics two decades earlier, the film ties together five short tales with a wrap around story featuring the Crypt Keeper. The Black Saint and Doc recap and review each story praising Peter Cushing in Poetic Justice and the creative revenge found in Blind Alleys. The film is responsible for inspiring two sequels, Vault of Horror and From Beyond the Grave, a loving tribute from Stephen King and George Romero with Creepshow and an HBO television that elevated the Crypt Keeper to a modern horror icon.

If you haven't seen this film yet, what are you waiting for? And of course, what would 2014 be without Godzilla.

The final theatrical horror film of 2014 is The Pyramid from director Gregory Levasseur featuring Ashley Hinshaw and Denis (American Horror Story) O'Hare.

Review: The Pyramid (2014) 

Producer Alexandre Aja delivers dangerous mazes, flesh hungry Sphinx creature and Anubis in his latest film The Pyramid. While the film delivers a bevy of gory effects but fails to bring much scares or horror. While Doc and Vixen find enough to entertain them for the 89 minute run time, The Black Saint can't help but wonder why they remade As Above, So Below. Bwah hah hah.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Z Nation season finale 

Dave and Doc freely admit they have been following Asylum's Z Nation airing on SyFy. Despite the low budget and cheesy approach to the show, Z Nation is consistently fun, in their opinion. The Black Saint, Thomas and Vixen refuse to believe them. So sad. Doc shares his thoughts on the finale of the first season of Z Nation.

Marvel and DC have both plotted out the next five years with two or three super hero films coming from each studio every year. Disney has also planned out their Star Wars franchise. The X-Men are still going strong with Bryan Singer returning to the helm. It is difficult to go a few days without some fantastic bit of news about super heroes or space soldiers taking to the big screen in a grand, marvelous way. It's the dawning of a new era, a new way for fandom to embrace their favorite properties. And now Horror News Radio will help shine the light on what it all means: Thomas Mariani joins Doc Rotten to bring the Horror News Radio Super Specials with special guest hosts. This week they are joined by award winning writer/director Christopher G. Moore and fan-turned-podcaster Joey Fittos.

"She Is Young, She Is Beautiful, She is Next...She's Living in the Gateway to Hell" The tag line for The Sentinel (1977) gives away the darkest secret of the big budgeted, big release horror film from Michael Winner based on the hit novel from Jeffrey Konvitz. The cast is insane and the effects are from the legendary Dick Smith.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 6 – Squirm (1976) 

 

For The Sentinel, Doc Rotten and The Black Saint are joined by North Carolina writer/directory/fxartist Bill (400 Ways to Kill a Vampire, A Few Brains More) Mulligan to discuss the overlooked classic from 1977. If nothing else, the cast itself in impressive: Chris Sarandon, Cristina Raines, Ava Gardner & Burgess Meredith, with Martin Balsam, John Carradine, Jose Ferrer, Arthur Kennedy, Sylvia Miles, Deborah Raffin, Eli Wallach, Christopher Walken, Jerry Orbach, Beverly D'Angelo, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Berenger, William Hickey. A who's who of Hollywood then and now. The film is also notorious for the controversy surrounding the use of real "freaks" for the finale that spawned protests and discouraging reviews upon its release. Still the film has a horrific and genuinely frightening scene that places it at number 46 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments (2004).

A double feature special Thanksgiving edition of HNR is coming your way reviewing The Guest (2014) and Starry Eyes (2014), two smaller budget VOD films from up and coming directors with lead roles that introduce star making performances. Dan Stevens stars as David in The Guest and Alex Essoe transforms in Starry Eyes. If for no other reason, these films deserve to be seen for these two actors. Check out the reviews for more compelling pros and cons.

 

Dave shares the horror news of the week with news about Star Wars Episode VII. Seriously, what else do you need? Jurassic World, maybe. Thomas and The Black Saint share their thoughts about the number one film in the theaters this weekend, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

Review: Starry Eyes (2014) 

Writer/Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer deliver their crowd funded, highly reviewed, low budget feature film Starry Eyes which examines a young woman's desire to become a star and the crazy lengths she will go to get what she wants. The intimate script mixes elements of Faust, body horror and slasher film tropes into an interesting but uneven film. Alex Essoe is captivating in the starring role.

 

Review: The Guest (2014) 

HNR favorites Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett follow up their film, You're Next, with The Guest about a mysterious stranger who arrives at the home of a family dealing with the loss of the oldest son who died overseas serving his country. Dan Stevens stars as David who has shocking and horrifying secrets. The film is energetic, exciting and bloody. It may become a cult classic.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (2014) 

Thomas Mariani and The Black Saint complain that the latest Katniss feature, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, is overly padded and dull. The Black Saint is particularly concerned that splitting the final book into two features is solely a money grab by the studios and may ultimately sour the franchise. Does Thomas agree?

Kelly, who has been working in the business for over a decade on such films as Dream House, Carrie (2013), Robocop (2014) and Pacific Rim.

Review: Jessabelle (2014) 

The only thing that the grue-crew can agree upon in this week's horror release Jessabelle is that Sarah Snook makes an impression with the character driven horror film set in the deep south. The Black Saint suggests it is better suited for the Lifetime channel finding very little that is scary or interesting while Doc, Vixen and Dave all seem to like the film quite a bit. Sound the bell, it HNR-nite fights!

 

Review: Interstellar (2014) 

Matthew McConaughy joins Anne Hathaway and Wes Bentley to explore deep space in hopes to save humanity in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. The Black Saint and Thomas Mariani discuss the film's sound design, spectacular special effects and emotional human drama.

What Have You Been Watching:  Over the Garden Wall 

The Cartoon Network astounds Thomas Mariani and The Black Saint with its 10 episode animated min-series Over the Garden Wall.

"...by the billions they came, swarming over the land, sucking the life from anything in their path." The tag line promises Squirm (1979) will horrify and disgust you with the killer swarm of...worms. Wait? What? Worms? Yeah, worms! Director Jeff Lieberman delivers cinemas singular horror film featuring killer Glycera worms.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 6 – Squirm (1976) 

 

Both Doc Rotten and The Black Saint fondly recall the impression the promotion stills from Famous Monsters of Filmland left upon even before they were able to catch the film: The Black Saint in the theater upon its original release and Doc with its television premiere. Now as they re-watch the film once again in celebration of its latest Blu-Ray release from Scream Factory, Doc and Saint revel in the gruesome worm closeups as the pour out of closets and drains and burrow their way into the face of Roger Grimes. Somehow, director Jeff Lieberman manages to exploit the squeamish, slimy attributes of the titular creatures attacking a southern household in rural Georgia. Creepy drive-in madness in only the way Seventies horror can provide.

Review: Horns (2014) 

Daniel Radcliff continues to explore the horror and fantasy genre after his years as Harry Potter with Horns playing a man who is accused of killing his girlfriend, Juno Temple, finds that he grows a pair of horns and decides to solve the murder on his own facing his own demons and those of his friends and surrounding community. Director Alexandre Aja delivers his most emotional work yet and the HNR crew share their thoughts on the film, the direction and the power behind the script inspired by the book from Joe Hill.

 

Review: VHS: Viral (2014) 

The popular found footage anthology franchise continues with VHS: Viral providing three new shorts and another wonky, confusing wrap around story. As with most anthology films, the movie is a good as its best short and as bad as its worst with VHS: Viral being the most uneven of the series yet, but still strong enough to have the HNR grue-crew looking forward to a fourth entry.

Horror News of the Week for 11/03/2014 

Dave returns to bring you the Horror News of the Week with news of the next Texas Chainsaw Massacre film Leatherface will be directed by the team behind Inside, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury. Eleven directors line up for a new feature announced for October 2015 titled Tales of Halloween with talent such as Neil Marshall, Darren Bousman, Mike Mendez and more. John Carpenter releases a new album of original soundtrack music called Lost Themes. Now that Rob Zombie has releases a synopsis of his next feature 31, the inspiration from Marvel's X-Men comic character Arcade and his Murderworld is painfully obvious. Pepsi ups its marketing with some Halloween fanfare. Good times!
