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.

They venture into the apex of the mysterious man made marvel only to encounter the unholy horrors that lie beneath. The HNR grue crew review the film.

 

Doc shares the horror news of the week with news about Marvel's Doctor Strange, Toho's Godzilla and Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens. Doc also desperately tries to champion the season finale of SyFy's Z Nation.

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.

 

Horror News of the Week for 12/08/2014

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.
