Dwayne The Rock Johnson stars in this year's apokalyptic CGI-laden disaster film, SAN ANDREAS from director Brad Peyton and writer Carlton Cuse. Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Giamatti, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugo Johnstone-Burt and Art Parkinson support the special effects and the Rock as Super-Dad. The film is stupid in so many ways but manages to be awesome regardless of the most insane destruction and impossible feats of heroism...ever. The Black Saint proclaims The Rock is a god.

 

Dave dishes a new plate of HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK with the sad news about the passing of Betsy Palmer, the possible casting of Dwayne Johnson as Jack Burton and the retirement of legendary make-up artist Rick Baker. Also, Joseph Perry returns with a third report from the  Jeonju International Film Festival with a new set of horror movie reviews from abroad.

 

Co-hosts Doc RottenSantos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.Dave DreherThomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! Doc announces a new contest as HNR teams up with Arc Entertainment for a Private Number DVD giveaway.

Review: San Andreas (2015)  

When the earth shakes rattling San Francisco in San Andreas, they will feel it on the East Coast. Or so warns Paul Giamatti. The amount of destruction and implausible effects and disaster is exhausting eye candy. The Rock manages to squeeze out a tear or two as he fights to save his daughter, Alexandria Daddario, from a building sinking into tsunami soaked streets. The grue-crew all realize that the movie is preposterous but cannot deny the film's appeal and entertainment value. The film is fun.

"Anti-shark cage. You go inside the cage? Cage goes in the water, you go in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark." - Quint to Hooper in JAWS (1975). Steven Spielberg's classic Universal horror film is considered one of Hollywood's finest achievements in terror. The cast is phenomenal, a trio of actors that will never be equaled: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 18 – Jaws (1975) 
Part 1 w/ The Black Saint, Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani 
with Special Guest-Host Bill Oberst, Jr. 

 

Joining The Black Saint and Doc Rotten are joined by their Horror News Radio colleagues, Thomas Mariani and Dave Dreher, to dive into the waters off of Amity Island as Sheriff Martin Brody, Bartholomew M. Quint and Matt Hooper battle a 25 tons of man-eating machine, a great white shark named "Bruce." Just to make sure the shark does not swim up and bite us in the ass, we have a very special guest-host joining us to discuss seeing JAWS for the first time back in 1975, the extraordinary and prolific actor Bill Oberst, Jr.

 

There is a creature alive today that has survived millions of years of evolution without change, without passion and without logic. It lives to kill; a mindless eating machine. It will attack and devour anything. It is as if God created the Devil and gave him… Jaws.

Review: Poltergeist (2015)  

The remake that no one wanted - except maybe Doc - finally makes its way into the theaters this weekend. It's Poltergeist, baby. To everyone's surprise no one really hates the film but the film fails to make a lasting impression. The grue-crew tear apart the Sam Raimi produced 2015 version of the Spielberg/Hooper classic. Clowns, trees and angry ghosts now go face to face with Jared Harris. #ThisHouseIsClean

What Have You Been Watching: Tomorrowland (2015)

Despite amounting to little more than an extended chase scene, George Miller's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD offers a complex and engaging fully realized apocalyptic world full of imagination and insanity.

To the Black Saint's joy, MAGGIE finally mixes action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger with zombie cinema only to find that the film delivers a more introspective look into the transformation from human to ghoul and its effect on the family dynamic instead. His dreams of a killer Arnie vs Zombie action flick are crushed. Vixen doesn't care and loves the film anyway. Ah, the drama.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Spring (2015)  

The Grue-crew explore one of the best and refreshing creature films of the year, SPRING. Surprisingly not everyone on the show is on board with this film from Justin Bensonand  and Aaron Moorhead featuring Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker.

Decades of Horror return to early Blacksploitation horror with the AIP sequel to their hit vampire flick Blacula (1972). Along for the ride are Richard Lawson and Pam Grier. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 15 – Scream Blacula Scream (1973) 

 

The director of Count Yorga, Vampire and The Return of Count Yorga, Bob Kelljan , resurrects Dracula' Soul Brother for Scream, Blacula, Scream. "The Black Prince of Shadows Stalks the Earth Again!" promises the tag line while The Black Saint argues the title suggests a far different film. Doc defends the movie enjoying the inclusion of voodoo and more vampirism while the Black Saint insists it is as slow as molasses. Regardless William Marshall owns the roles and keeps the film alive with another wonderful performance.

 

Some fun dialog: 
Pimp, "Your bread, man, all of it! Or are we gonna have to become anti-social and kick your ass?" 
Blacula, "I'm sorry, I don't have any 'bread' on me, and as for 'kicking my ass' I'd strongly suggest you give it careful consideration before trying"

The HNR Grue-crew try to replicate the greatness of the under-the-knee clap featured in Oscar Isaac's dance scene from this week's featured review EX MACHINA.

Review: Ex Machina (2015)  

Screenwriter Alex Garland steps behind the camera to direct Ex Machina pitting Oscar Isaac against Domhnall Gleeson with the fate of Alicia Vikander's Ava. The film challenges the nature of humanity running a stunning parallel to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The movie also successfully pits The Black Saint against Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani and Vixen in whether the film is one of the year's best films or a dull waste of time.

Nazi Zombies, Alan Ormsby makeup design, Peter Cushing and John Caradine: it is a recipe for greatness. This episode Decades of Horror dives into the bloody waters of SHOCK WAVES from director Ken Wiederhorn. The tagline says it all, "Once They Were Almost Human! Beneath the living... Beyond the dead... From the depths of Hell's Ocean! The Deep End of Horror!" The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s

North Carolina film maker Bill Mulligan returns DoH to discuss Shock Waves along with horror fan Paul Cardullo who along with Doc Rotten recently caught the film on the big screen at the Retrofantasma film series at the Carolina Theater in Durham, NC.

Found footage gets anti-social in the new theatrical release, Unfriended. The film hits for its target audience but leaves the Grue-crew a little cold.

Review: Unfriended (2015)  

Director Levan Gabriadze and writer Nelson Greaves team up with Blumhouse to usher in a new age in horror where a vengeful spirit attacks her prey through Skype chat in the latest theatrical horror release Unfriended. Told entirely from the laptop screen of the lead protagonist, the film weaves its tale through video chat screens, text messages. Facebook posts and Youtube videos. The Grue-crew wrestle with the concept versus the execution in deciding if the film is successful or a flop.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Daredevil (2015)

But it is Vincent D'Onofrio who rises above the flames as Wilson Fisk, the villain often known as Kingpin. He kicks ass, literally.

If you are a fan of Troma films and love a good werewolf pic, then WOLFCOP is the film for you. It is not, however, necessarily a film for every host on HNR. The film is high concept, low brow humor and gory special effects. What else would a fun-loving horror fan need?

James Wan delivers with his first foray into high action Hollywood blockbuster features with FURIOUS 7.

The first and best of all "blaxploitation" horror films, BLACULA, takes a bite out of The Black Saint and Doc Rotten on episode 14 of Decades of Horror. "Are you ILL, sir?!" belts William Marshall as Prince Mamawalde as Count Dracula crosses "Dracula's Soul Brother" in the opening of William Crain's Seventies classic. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

 

Decades of Horror 1970s 
Episode 14 – Blacula (1972) 

 

As Blacula and its sequel, Scream Blacula Scream are released on Blu-Ray by Scream Factory (March 2015), The Black Saint and Doc Rotten dive into the film discussing William Marshall, Blaxploitation horror and the Hues Corporation. More than many of the films of the decade, Blacula is steeped in the vibe of the times from the dialog to the costumes. The film owes a lot to the imposing and dynamic presence of William Marshall as Mamuwalde and Blacula. The make up effect are decent for the time and the slow motion vampire attack still leaves a lasting impression on The Black Saint.

Join us this week as we take a look at ten horror films screened at the 16th Annual Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, North Carolina. The festival, which plays at the Carolina Theater, is one of the best, more intimate, horror festivals on the circuit bringing many unseen and low budget, independent genre films to the big screen. This year's group contains found footage, home invasion, werewolves, Sasquatch creatures, Spanish demon heavy metal puppets of death and a few surprises.

 

Doc Rotten is joined by avid horror fan and NC Film Maker, Paul Cardillo (Fix It In Post). Together they take a look at each of the ten films from the Nevermore Film Festival. Between the two of them, they were able to catch each major entry in the festival. While Doc favors Dig Two Graves and Pieces of Talent, Paul provides a terrific argument that Savageland and Blood Punch may be the best in a long time. The selection provides a variety of genre favorites, gore, effects and solid character development. Oh, yeah, and puppets made out of trash bags...

Review: Muck (2015)  

The much anticipated horror movie MUCK elicits an unexpected unilateral reaction to the film from the Grue-crew. The gore-filled creature feature from director Steve Wolsh stars horror legend Kane Hodder, Jaclyn Swedberg and Lachlan Buchanan. The story centers around a group of friends escaping the marshes surrounding Cap Cod only to find their night evolves into a living nightmare. You may never guess what the Muck happens on this episode... 

 

Review: Valley of the Sasquatch (2015)  

Bill Oberst Jr. stars in John Portanova's well crafted Bigfoot film VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH. The film benefits from focusing on the characters, a dysfunctional father and son dealing with the loss of the boy's mother, relocating to a run-down family shack deep in the woods and surviving an attack from a trio of pissed-off hairy creatures hunting them down. Focusing on the family and characters, Valley of the Sasquatch delivers a strong entry into the Bigfoot sub-genre.

Join us this week as we take a look at thirteen of the top kills found in the Friday the 13th films that began in 1980 with the influential horror film from Sean Cunningham featuring ground breaking graphic effects from the Godfather of Gore, Tom Savini. The series of films that followed are responsible for bloody practical effects that wowed, astonished and horrified audiences as Jason Voorhees claims victim after victim - or finally meets one of his many ends, often at the hands of Tommy Jarvis.

 

Horror News Radio co-host and contributing writer at Diabolique Magazine, Dave Dreher joins Doc Rotten to revisit the Friday the 13th franchise tackling 13 top kills. After weeks of bartering back and forth, the duo settle on the list that follows. A few highlights include Kevin Bacon meeting an early end in the original Friday the 13th and Ron Palillo from Welcome Back, Kotter going face to face with the resurrected Jason in Friday the 13th: Jason Lives. Splattering blood across the big screen, Jason supplies a variety of tools to slice and dice through the cast of characters, machetes, arrows, knives and even liquid nitrogen.
