00:02:50 – Review of Contracted (2013) 
Santos brings Contracted from the New York Horror Film Festival to the Horror News Radio grue. The film has the everyone at odds as Dave and Thomas enjoy the film for its imagination, gore and concept while Vixen and Doc have too much difficulty dealing with all the stupid characters, decisions and plot devices. Regardless, the film is riveting, captivating its audience until the final frame. The film preys on the fears of body horror with blood, sores, bleeding eyes and vomit. It's nasty.

 

00:48:30– Horror News of the Week for 11/25/2013 
Dave brings you the Horror News of the Week beginning with news of another remake of George Romero's Day of the Dead. Next up is horror producer Jason Blum from Blumhouse Productions is returning to television bringing a new show surrounding haunted houses. Details are lost in mystery at the time of the podcast, but interest is high. Wilmer Valderrama joins Robert Rodriguez' TV version of From Dusk Til Dawn much to Vixen's surprise. IFC Midnight has purchased the Zoe Bell film, Raze, for release early in 2014. The documentary Playing with Fear has created a 3 minute short about the evolution of horror gaming in efforts to raise money with the crowd funding efforts.

 

01:02:10 – What Have You Been Watching: Day of the Doctor 
Day of the Doctor leaves Thomas and Doc giddy as school kids with the 50th anniversary, 799th episode of the phenomenal BBC series, Doctor Who. David Tennant, the tenth Doctor, joins Matt Smith, the current eleventh Doctor to stand along side John Hurt as the War Doctor, who is responsible for destroying all of the Time Lords. The show is rich in science fiction, entertainment and emotionally gripping story. Vixen and Santos only recall the Tom Baker episodes from the 1970s - boy, are they in for a surprise!

00:02:37 – Review of The the Dark World (2013) 
The grue-crew dramatically leap right into the review of the latest Marvel Studios megaplex monster, Thor the Dark World. While everyone blasts the villain of the film, the dark elf Malekith, as a weak excuse for a cinematic bad guy with a confusing, convoluted and unmotivated drive to return the universe to the darkness, they love the relationship between Thor and Loki. Director Alan Taylor strikes superhero gold with the Thunder God's latest adventure in Asgard.

 

00:45:56– Horror News of the Week for 11/11/2013 
"You gotta eat lightning and crap thunder, Dreher," Thomas belts as Santos wakes up Dave in order to bring you the Horror News of the Week beginning with the found-footage bigfoot film Willow Creek. Another Dark Sky film is up next with the anthology horror film, XX, featuring a collection of female directors. Marvel Studios and Netflix sign a deal to bring four 13 episode series to the online outlet include DaredevilJessica JonesLuke Cage and Iron Fist.

Ender's Game is finally here, 28 years in the making. Gavin Hood directs Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley in the teen friendly Sci-Fi adventure.

 

Horror News Radio co-hosts Doc RottenDave DreherSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Thomas Mariani and Vixen have mixed feelings on the results. Some of it works for most all the grue-crew while many have issues with the pacing, the characters and, in Dave's case, the film altogether. Doc tries to defend Ender's Game with only moderate success.

 

Dave continues with the Horror News of the Week and shares his visit to Robert Kurtzman's Mad FX Studio for a Halloween party where the guest of honor was none other than Freddy Kruger himself, Robert Englund.

00:04:00 – Review of Ender's Game (2013) 
The grue-crew venture into Sci-Fi territory this week as they review Ender's Game from Gavin Hood. It does have aliens - well, almost. It does have bloodshed - uh, no, not really. Gasp, the horror in Ender's Game is the realization of the effects of Harrison Ford's character's manipulation of the young cast. It is devastating, an emotional hit to the gut. While Dave zoned out pretty quickly, Doc and Vixen generally liked it while both Santos and Thomas had stronger issues.

 

00:47:56 – What Have You Been Watching: Dave meets Robert Englund 
Dave was fortunate to attend a special Halloween event at Robert Kurtzman's Mad FX Studio to support his school the Kurtzman Institute of Art. The guest of honor was Robert Englund the talented madman who plays Freddy Kruger - and is featured in over 140 films. Dave shares the event and his meeting of the modern horror icon.

 

00:52.31– Horror News of the Week for 11/04/2013 
Dave rocks the horror news of the week beginning with news that Samuel L. Jackson has joined fellow 1408 co-star John Cusack for the screen adaptation of Stephen King's Cell to be directed by Paranormal Activity 2's Tod Williams. A pair of directors are up next with George Romero commenting about the lack of zombies in The Walking Dead and David Cronenberg cutting Stanley Kubrick below the knees for the lack of horror in The Shining. Thomas is not terribly interested in hearing about Eli Roth's The Green Inferno which had footage premiere this week. Michael Biehn finally released a trailer for his film Hidden in the Woods that is truly disturbing. And the Archie comics are going un-dead with Afterlife with Archie.

00:04:00 – Review of Hellbenders (2013) 
The grue-crew are thoroughly disappointed with J.T. Petty's latest horror comedy. The notion of a group of priests whose sole function is to sin as much as possible so they can be called on to drag a demon back to hell should the need arise could be the stuff of horror dreams but the Horror News Radio co-hosts all seem to agree the director J.T. Petty misses a great opportunity with the adaptation of his graphic novel Hellbenders. Speckled with a handful of decent performances and a fun scene or two the film comes across as a great idea rather than a great film. The crew all agrees that they like the idea behind Hellbenders but each has issues that they discuss in depth.

 

00:39:28– Horror News of the Week for 10/28/2013 
It’s news time and Dave is ready to update everyone on all the horror happenings of the week and first up is the R rated trailer for the new found footage paranormal spook-fest Skinwalker Ranch. While Dave is looking forward to this one everyone else seems a little less excited about it. Causing a little more excitement is the news that Clive Barker is taking over the reins of the remake of Hellraiser and he is insisting Doug Bradley come along for the ride. Then is to the small screen as Dave brings the gang up to speed on a new Vampire special airing on NBC and drops the news that all eight seasons of Dexter are heading to Netflix. We end the news segment discussing SNL and the hilarious fake trailer they made for a Wes Anderson horror film.

 

00:58:15 – What Have You Been Watching: Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights 
Thomas is back from his trip to Orlando, Florida as he does what every horror fan in America wishes they could do: visit Universal Studios to participate in the park's annual Halloween Horror Nights. Thomas relates his trip through the many movie themed houses and mazes.

 

01:05:03 – Sweepstakes for American Horror Story: Asylum Blu-ray 
As if all this was not enough, Doc chimes in with the contest winner. The prize? A copy of the American Horror Story: Asylum Blu-ray! Congratulations to Christopher Santiago from Bronx, New York.
