Review: Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014)  

Described as a mix between Dawn of the Dead and Mad Max, Wyrmwood is receiving high praise around the internet. The grue-crew chime in on their reactions to all the zany zombie action from director Kiah Roache-Turner. The highlight of the film is easily the addition of Bianca Bradey as Brooke who goes through unimaginable transformation during the film. The action is fast paced and the gore if plentiful.

 

Review: Late Phases (2014)  

Dave starts off the review of Late Phases with a quick report from the Cleveland Wizard Comic Con where effects artist supreme Robert Kurtzman brought some of the werewolf heads to display. Doc and Vixen report on their catching the film at the recent Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, North Carolina. The grue-crew sum up the film as a werewolf film, as a character piece and as a kick-ass horror film.

From the director of PORKY'SMURDER BY DECREE and A CHRISTMAS STORY comes a tale so terrifying, to frightening, you will "piss your pants." CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS is Bob Clark's under-appreciated zombie cult classic from 1973. Not widely seen, but loved by most all who have seen it, the film bridges the gap between NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and EVIL DEAD.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

  

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 12 – Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (1973) 

 

For Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things, Doc Rotten and The Black Saint are joined by Ormon Grimsby and Joseph Fittos to discuss Bob Clark's oddball zombie flick from 1973. Ormon, the animated horror host from North Carolina, claims the film as one of his favorites, influential to both his love of horror films and his horror hosting personality. The Black Saint is not far behind him in his high praise and appreciation for this low budget must-see-film.

Review: What We Do In The Shadows (2014) 

No surprise here: Dave, Thomas and Doc all sing praises for the vampire horror comedy What We Do In The Shadows. The grue-crew dive into what makes this film hit the high moments with laughs and silly fun. Thomas spotlights co-director Jemain Clement in the role of Vladislav while Doc appreciates the understated comedy of Stu (as played by Stuart Rutherford). David, of course, adores the Nosferatu look and feel of the elder vampire, Petyr. Find out why you should see this film.

 

Review: Kingsman The Secret Service (2015) 

Colin Firth kills it as the suave but deadly Harry Hart in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman The Secret Service as they take a satiric stab at every concept buried in the tropes of James Bond, Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer. Doc has admiration for Gazelle as played by Sofia Boutella. Thomas patiently waits for Doc to finish stammering about the effects and the comedy to discuss Samuel L. Jackson as the film's villain, the billionaire named Valentine.

Review: Fear Clinic (2015)

Hall (Laid to Rest) with nervous...anticipation.

  

Review: Project Almanac (2015)

"Who calls me from out of the Pit?" The tag line exclaims one Ernest Borgnine's best lines as Jonathan Corbis in The Devil's Rain (1975) where he transforms into a goat faced pagan demon. Director Robert Fuest's campy horror flick not only has William Shatner, Tom Skerritt, Keenan Wynn, Ida Lupino and Eddie Albert in its all star cast, the film also presents the first screen appearance of John Travolta.  The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 11 – The Devil's Rain (1975) 

 

For The Devil's Rain, Doc Rotten and The Black Saint step back into 1975 to recap, review and remember a campy devil classic where the entire cast melts during the finale. The ending contains spectacular special effects, the movie contains the iconic Corbis make up on Ernest Borgnine and stands in a long line of 70's films with a terrific, powerful downer ending. The Black Saint spotlights the fun encounter between Shatner and Borgnine near the middle of the film while Doc points out how the film is basically broken into two films, Shatner's story followed by Skerritt's tale.
