 Review: Cooties (2015)  

In a curious turn, the thoughts from the Grue-crew - and special guest-host Christopher G. Moore - about the new horror comedy Cooties are all across the board from loving it to absolutely hating it. Arguably more so than horror, comedy is extremely subjective with the Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion directed film appealing to Christopher who gives it a 4.0. On the other end lies Thomas Mariani, giving the film a 0.5. Insane. This is the review you want to listen to.

"Yesterday they were cold and dead. Today they're hot and bothered!" - the tagline for the Al Adamson 1971 cult classic Dracula vs Frankenstein immediately sets up the unique tone and goofy splendor that this one-of-kind film possesses. There is literally no other film like it - and there should never be one.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 24 – Dracula vs Frankenstein (1971) 

 

Dracula vs Frankenstein (1971) is a quirky combination of three separate films, starting off as a sequel to Al Adamson's hit biker film Satan's Sadists then morphing into The Blood Seekers before adding the titular monsters for Dracula vs Frankenstein. The result is spectacular in its awfulness, a must-see film. The film stars horror favorite J. Carrol Naish and icon Lon Chaney Jr. in their final horror film roles as Dr. Frankenstein and the Mad Zombie. Dracula and Frankenstein are played by Zandor Vorkov and John Bloom - the monster is also credited to Shelly Weiss who donned the make-up for the final scene. Bill Mulligan returns to guess-host along side Doc and the Black Saint as they take a fascinating look back as Dracula vs Frankenstein.

M. Night Shyamalan returns to the horror genre with the Blumhouse produced found-footage film THE VISIT - and only Doc Rotten is happy about it. Well, maybe he has a few other Grue-Crew co-hosts on his side. Or, not. And, just how funny is this horror film really anyways...

Also, the Grue-Crew discuss the awesome POV action trailer for Hardcore. Joseph Perry returns with four more reviews from the BiFan Internation Film Festival: Why Horror?, Extraordinary Tales, Yakuza Apocalypse and Night Fare.

 Review: The Visit (2015)  

The Grue-crew contemplate the results of mixing found-footage, creepy old crazy people and weather-worn director M. Night Shyamalan for the Blumhouse film THE VISIT. "Yahtzee!" Ah, things don't go as well as planned for poor Doc Rotten who once again likes a film that Thomas and The Black Saint...absolutely despise. At least this week, he has guest-host Christopher G. Moore to back him up - and maybe Vixen as well.

Mixing Office Space with Fright NightBLOODSUCKING BASTARDS (2015) provides laughs, scares and gore galore. Directed by Brian James O'Connell and the comedy troupe Dr. God, the film stars Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods), Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Joey Kern and more. The Grue-Crew chime in with their review of this blood soaked horror comedy.

 

Dave begins the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about Halloween Returns, the remake of The Burning called Cropsey and a rumored remake of Jaws. Oh, hell no. In the What Have You Been Watching segment found footage finds its final nail with Oren Peli's AREA 51 while Joseph Perry returns with five reviews from the BiFan Internation Film Festival: Ghoul, There Are Monsters, Afterimages, Sweet Home and House of Shadows..

 Review: Bloodsucking Bastards (2015)  

The familiar and friendly face to horror fans, Fran Kranz leads a cast of office slackers that face being over run by vampires in the horror comedy BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS. The film benefits from a witty script, a great cast and gallons of grue but still has trouble gelling as a whole film. The Grue-Crew review the film providing thoughts on what jokes works, what effects thrill and what actors provide the most to the uneven but enjoyable script.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Area 51 (2015) 

Over five years in the making - or perhaps rotting on a Blumhouse shelf - the follow-up film from Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) called AREA 51 finally makes its way into the public's eye - currently available on Netflix. The found footage film follows a group of overly curious young men investigating what lies beneath the storage buildings found in the infamous Area 51. Will they find a conspiracy, aliens or a horror beyond imaging. The Black Saint wonders if they will find ... a film, any talent or any common sense. Doc, on the other hand ... well, the less said the better.

 

Festival Report: BiFan (2015) w/ Ghoul, There Are Monsters, Afterimages, Sweet Home, House of Shadows 

International HNR Reported Joseph Perry returns with another BiFan International Film Festival update featuring reviews of five more extraordinary horror movies. This week he digs into Ghoul (Czech Republic), There Are Monsters (Canada), Afterimages (Singapore), Sweet Home (Spain) and House of Shadows (Italy/Ireland). Sadly, however, there is little to recommend about any of these films. Find out why!

 

Horror News of the Week for 09/07/2015  

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with an interview with director Marcus Dunstan about the upcoming Halloween Returns.  He follows that up with news of a semi-remake of the Tom Savini classic The Burning tentatively called Cropsey. With Steven Spielberg's rumored return to Universal could a remake of JAWS be far behind. Damn those rumors. Friday the 13th is getting a 4D experience treatment in Pittsburgh and Las Vegas. Finally, Cary Fukunaga offers up his reasoning for leaving the IT remake. Damn those studios.

Abigail Breslin and Wes Bentley star in FINAL GIRL from director Tyler Shields as a pair of mysterious outlaws who focus their attention on a band of murderous maniacs preying on helpless young women. It is one bad ass chick against four insane psychopaths as Breslin proves you don't want to mess with the ... final girl.

Review: Final Girl (2015)  

Dave Dreher says it best during the podcast review, "Somewhere in this mess is a great story." Final Girl featuring Abigail Breslin, Wes Bentley, Alexander Ludwig and Logan Huffman attempts to build something uniquely interesting, but - to quote Dave once again - "fails miserably." The Grue-Crew hack and slash away at the film questioning the dialog, the lighting, the logic and - with all due apologies - Wes Bentley. Check out the review, we will give you a five minute head start.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Cub (2015) 

Originally titled Welp, the Norwegian film dubbed Cub in the States follows the story of young Sam, a troubled cub scout on a camping trip with his troupe. Once at the camp ground, Sam discovers the legend of Kai may very well be true when he encounters a feral young boy hiding - and killing - in the woods. The Grue-Crew recommend the film for its imagination, ballsy attitude, creative traps and its young star, Maurice Luijten.

 

Festival Report: BiFan (2015) w/ Turbo Kid & Deathgasm 

International HNR Reported Joseph Perry returns with another BiFan International Film Festival update featuring reviews of two more extraordinary horror movies. This week he digs into the Canadian gore-fest, Turbo Kid, and the heavy-metal horror comedy from New Zealand, Deathgasm.

 

Horror News of the Week for 08/31/2015  

Dave shares the Horror News of the Week with the sad news of the passing of another horror legend, Wes Craven. The Grue-Crew share their favorite Wes Craven films and memories of first seeing a Wes Craven movie.  In TV news, AMC announces a stand alone Fear the Walking Dead episode, but all is not exactly as it seems. Bill Murray goes on the record about his Ghostbusters cameo supporting the film, its director Paul Fieg and its all-female cast. Rounding out the news, the Grue-Crew share their reaction to the upcoming Thanksgiving 2015 genre release Victor Frankenstein.

" I believe that is what they call the mic drop. You dropped the mic, Will." - Hannibal goads Will Graham as our troubled hero gleefully executes his plan to lure both Dr. Lecter and the great Red Dragon into his trap. The much anticipated 3rd season of the hit NBC series, HANNIBAL, concludes with "The Wrath of the Lamb" Thomas Mariani, Dave Dreher, Christopher G. Moore and Doc Rotten gather to provide their in-depth review of the eleventh episode of Hannibal Season 3 that aired Aug 29, 2015.
