A24 distributors release the serious horror film The Witch into theaters this past weekend to decent box office and critical praise, for the most part. The Grue-crew are on board to examine the slow-burn thriller that - small spoilers - features...a witch. Is it scary? Is it authentic? Is it any good? Ha! HNR is here to let you know. The film is full of rich atmosphere, great acting, stunning cinematography, creepy music and haunting imagery. Yeah, see it.

Dave launches the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with information about We Go On, Zoombies and Hellraiser. The Grue-crew also dives into the viral marketing promoting 10 Cloverfield Lane.

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! Oh, and don't forget - Stump the Saint!

Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller strike gold with their irreverent, fourth-wall breaking superhero comedy Deadpool, bringing the much-loved Marvel character to life - for the second time. That's right, the wise-cracking, wise-ass Merc with a Mouth gets a second shot at widescreen stardom after the disastrous appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and succeeds beyond everyone's expectations and dreams. The film crushes its competition on its opening weekend, breaking records to the delight of fans. The crew-crew, along with guest host Christopher G. Moore, share their love for Deadpool, its star, its marketing and their favorite scenes.

Thomas launches the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with information about The Invisible Man, Purge 3: Election Year and Ash vs the Evil Dead. In the What Have You Been Watching hacks, slices and bashes the mid-season return of The Walking Dead.

"Who are these unholy savages who hunt out their victims by sound alone?" - the tagline for Tombs of the Blind Dead (La Noche del Terror Ciego) from under-appreciated Spanish director Amando de Ossorio introduces the zombie-like terror of The Templar Knights. When a group of travelers stumble upon an abandoned, dilapidated castle, los Guerreros de Oriente rise from the grave to drink their blood. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

Episode3 – Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971)

Excited to discuss the film he refers to as "Revenge from Planet Ape", Bill Mulligan returns to guest-host this episode of Decades of Horror. Joining us for the first time is fan-turned-guest-host Jerry Chandler, writer for Needless Things. Bill and Jerry quickly reveals they are huge fans of Tombs of the Blind Dead as they join Doc and the Black Saint in recapping and reviewing La Noche del Terror Ciego. Fun things that come up, in addition to the Planet of the Apes marketing ploy, is a debate if the creatures in the film are zombies, vampires or raging ghosts. A familiar but often forgotten gem, Tombs of the Blind Dead proves to be a terrific topic to discuss thanks to the Grue-believers from Gruesome Magazine who helped select the topic for this episode.

The adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith parody hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies stumbles into theaters this weekend making barely a dent in the box office. While the horror-fied version of the Jane Austin classic was a hit with Vixen and Doc Rotten, it did not impress Thomas Mariani and the Black Saint much at all. With Dave stuck in the middle, the discussion gets lively examining the good, the bad and the ugly.

Dave launches the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with information about 10 Cloverfield Lane, John Carpenter and The Exorcist. Also a reminder this week about the forthcoming book from Gruesome Magazine written by the Grue-crew called Gruesome Magazine presents Horror Films from 1980.

The Grue-crew immediately skewer Doc's love for found footage as they review JeruZalem on this week's episode of HNR. The Israeli film from directors Doron Paz and Yoav Paz follows a pair of Americans visiting Jerusalem when the apocalypse poops on their parade. They race to escape the city as giants, monsters and flying zombies attack. Thomas is quick to point out that the film's main device, Google Glasses, are already passe and date the film. It may not get much better from there despite Doc optimistically describing his enjoyment of Jeruzalem as a guilty pleasure. Oh, my!

Doc and Thomas launch the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with information about Under the Shadow, Swiss Army Man, Cabin Fever and ... Moose Jaws. Also a reminder this week about the forthcoming book from Gruesome Magazine written by the Grue-crew called Gruesome Magazine presents Horror Films from 1980.

On this episode of the Monster Movie Podcast we are taking a look at the most anticipated Sci-Fi and Superhero films of 2016. A bit of a stretch for a Monster Movie podcast certainly, but it is still a fun romp examining some exciting films coming our way full of aliens, mutants, fantastic beasts, lunatics and a fancy dressed Master of the Mystic Arts. Joining me tonight are some of my friends from various podcasts and fellow writers at Gruesome Magazine: Thomas Mariani, co-managing editor of OneofUs.net; Christopher G. Moore, award wining director; and, Joey Fittos contributing writer at Gruesome Magazine. Things get insane and the next hour and half move pretty fast, so hold on.

With this episode, Monster Movie Podcast returns after a brief hiatus. A lot has happened since we last chilled. The biggest news is that Doc Rotten and the Grue-crew from Horror News Radio have launched Gruesome Magazine. It is the launch of this horror movie website that is responsible for the return of this podcast. But not only re-igniting the inspiration to resurrect the show, but to also become a key factor in determining the content found within. For this episode, the grue-believers at the site replied to an online survey of 20 Sci-Fi and Superhero films from 2016 to derive the films we are going to discuss tonight AND the order in which they are ranked. If you are interested in participating and helping the show in the process head over to the Gruesome Magazine Patreon account for details.
