The plot follows Beth (Hall) after the sudden, tragic loss of her husband left alone to reside in the house he built for them. Soon she begins to discover the many secrets the house hides within its walls. What was her husband up to?

THE SUICIDE SQUAD (2021) trailer is here! Hurray! James Gunn delivers the goods: Gore, Humor, and Giant Freakin' Kaiju Starfish!!! What's not to love? Seriously! This trailer looks incredible, and the GrueCrew are here to give you their impression of the fun to be had.

The Suicide Squad is back, this time in the hands of gifted director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) with familiar faces and new ones as well. Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), and Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) are now teaming up with Peacemaker (John Cena), Bloodsport (Idris Elba), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), and more. And, ladies and gentlemen, presenting STARRO. Just you wait.

The GrueCrew are excited to share the news that the New Zealand series WELLINGTON PARANORMAL from Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement is heading to the States to air on both the CW and HBOMAX. The show is a spin-off of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS following two paranormal investigating cops seen in that film. Look for the previous two seasons and the upcoming third season to air on HBOMAX soon.

Christopher and Vanessa step in to share the skinny on the series and what to expect. Look for HNR and the GrueCrew to cover the series once it comes available Stateside.

REVIEW: THE VIGIL (2021)

Steeped in ancient Jewish lore and demonology, THE VIGIL is supernatural horror film set over the course of a single evening in Brooklyn's Hasidic Borough Park neighborhood. Low on funds and having recently left his insular religious community, Yakov reluctantly accepts an offer from his former rabbi and confidante to take on the responsibility of an overnight "shomer," fulfilling the Jewish practice of watching over the body of a deceased community member. Shortly after arriving at the recently departed's dilapidated house to sit the vigil, Yakov begins to realize that something is very, very wrong.

REVIEW: WRONG TURN (2021)

Backwoods terror and never-jangling suspense meet when Jen (Charlotte Vega) and a group of friends set out to hike the Appalachian Trail. Despite warnings to stick to the trail, the hikers stray off course—and cross into a land inhabited by The Foundation, a hidden community of mountain dwellers who use deadly means to protect their way of life. Suddenly under siege, Jen and her friends seem headed to the point of no return— unless Jen’s father (Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine) can reach them in time.

It's time to finally look back at the best films released during the worst year in recent memory. But, to be honest, while the world was generally on hold for most of 2020 and a majority of the theatrical releases were pushed back to 2021, streaming outlets were eager to step up the game and provide a variety of alternatives. And many of these films were damn fine entries to the horror genre.

Join the Horror News Radio Grue-Crew with special guest host Jeff Mohr as we look at our top 10 favorite horror films of 2020. To our surprise, a few theatrical films still managed to make their way into our lists. Vanessa decided to shake things up adding in a few TV series to remember. And Jeff mixes up the batch with some saucy Jeff-Mohr-inspired treats. Join us for this special look back at 2020 as we get ready to unlock the future with 2021.
