This week, Carrie White goes all super-supernatural on the grue-crew with the release of the Carrie remake from Kimberly Peirce, starring Chloe Grace Moretz.

 

Horror News Radio co-hosts Doc RottenDave DreherSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Thomas Mariani and Vixen rant and trash the remake of the Brian De Palma classic wondering what the hell the studio was really trying to accomplish. Instead of a thrilling retelling of the classic Stephen King story, they deliver a mediocre rehash of the familiar film from 1976.

 

Afterwards, Dave and Santos both share some horror documentaries they've been watching and Dave continues with the Horror News of the Week.

00:03:00 – Review of Carrie (2013) 
What the hell happened? Carrie (2013) is not brilliant film Doc was hoping for. Thomas starts off by giving Doc grief about ever being excited for the remake of King's tale about a troubled teenage girl who discovers she has telekinesis powers. Carrie (1976) is one of the top 20 horror films of all time on many lists, but the remake struggles to come anywhere close to the original - or the grue-crew's expectations. The biggest complaint is how close to the remake the sticks to the Brian De Palma's film. Vixen offers a glimmer of hope suggesting Julianne Moore's performance was stellar and engaging. Santos, however, who reviews the film on HorrorNews.Net has far less positive comments. Sigh.

 

00:46:10 – What Have You Been Watching: Birth of the Living Dead & Crystal Lake Memories 
In this weeks "What have you been watching" segment, Dave starts off with the film, Birth of the Living Dead. The film is a documentary about the making of George Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead (1968). Santos follows with the review of Crystal Lake Memories. This is a documentary all about the making of the Friday the 13th film series.

 

00:58:20– Horror News of the Week for 10/21/2013 
Once again diligent Dave Dreher brings the Horror News of the Week beginning with a pair of Blu-ray releases, Nosferatu and Slumber Party Massacre. The teaser trailer for the short film adaptation of Stephen King's Grey Matter is out. Bruce Campbell has suggested, in his usual snarky manner, that Army of Darkness 2 is in pre-production with both Sam Raimi and Bruce involved. Thomas is livid about the news of Tim Burton working on the sequel, Beetleguice 2. Last up, David shares the "Living with Jigsaw" short.

 

01:26:19 – Sweepstakes for American Horror Story: Asylum Blu-ray 
As if all this was not enough, Doc chimes in with a contest to win a copy of the American Horror Story: Asylum Blu-ray (US and Canada ONLY ). The sweepstakes end at Midnight (EST) on October 27, 2013, so get your entries in quickly.

Episode 28 – Machete Kills - Interview Mike Mendez, director Big Ass Spider 
Subscribe – iTunes – Facebook Group

 

00:02:13 – Interview with Mike Mendez, director of Big Ass Spider 
The episode opens with director Mike Mendez taking us behind the scenes of his big bug horror/comedy Big Ass Spider. The crew discusses the films New York Comic Con panel and the fact that any film can be fixed by casting Lin Shaye in it. Mike relates the long road he had to travel to bring his giant spider to the screen. It’s a fun, fascinating look under the covers of a sure to be indie classic.

 

00:38:12 – Horror News of the Week for 10/14/2013 
After the crew chats with Mike it’s time for news and Dave is up to the challenge and seeks everyone’s opinion on the record breaking debut of The Walking Dead Season Four as well as opening a discussion on what the first episode of the new season revealed. Next up is the casting of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in a new disaster flick, the earth shaking San Andreas. Next is a lively discussion on Spike Lee’s retelling of Oldboy as a new clip was released and the team gets into the merits of this one getting remade and for the final story of the night Dave points out the fact that Amazon is now selling 100 classic horror themes for $1.09, just in time for the haunt season.

 

00:57:10 – Reviews of Machete Kills and Big Ass Spider 
Once the crew recovers from all that new found knowledge it’s time to take on Machete Kills and everyone seems to have an opinion on this Robert Rodriguez directed sequel. Danny Trejo returns as the ex federal agent turned vigilante and as you would expect the action is high, the ladies are naked and plot is non-existent. Machete Kills did mpt fare well at the box office and it does not do much better with the grue-crew. On the other side of the coin, Big Ass Spider is brought up for review and it weaves a web the team is happy to get caught up in.

 

01:26:19 – Sweepstakes for American Horror Story: Asylum Blu-ray

00:45:52 – Horror News of the Week for 9/30/2013 
Dave Dreher’s horror news of the week begins with a top 10 films of 2013 list from Quentin Tarantino that made its way online this week. The list includes The ConjuringGravity and This is the End. But it is the inclusion of The Lone Ranger that sets the grue-crew off. Holy crud! Penny Dreadfulreleased a series of set photos that Dave wants to discuss but he quickly discovers the crew more interested in panning the trailer for I, Frankenstein. Even more controversial is the news that Showtime did not allow the writers of Dexter to kill off the character on the series finale. Next up is news of the Blu-ray release of Saturn 3 (1980) starring Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas and Harvey Keitel. Last up is the news that Robert (The Walking Dead) Kirkman is announcing a new horror series to be released in 2014.

 

01:05:30 – Gravity from Alfonso Cauron, starring Sandra Bullock and  George Clooney 
In a rare high tide, all five grue-crew members are together in the love and appreciation for Alfonso Cauron’s Gravity – the must-see film of 2013. The film is a beautiful example of art film meets energetic summer cinema. It is the most tense and thrilling 90 minutes ever committed to film while still full of emotion and tension. The cinematography is exquisite and the 3D is amazing. This film is destined to sweep the awards this coming spring.

 

01:26:50 – Listener Feedback 
We are proud to announce the two winners of the two (2) copies of the Fright Night 2: New Blood blu-ray we have to give away.
