The Grue-crew dive into a pair of horror films on VOD and streaming on Netflix. First up is the Blumhouse feature HUSH from director Mike Flanagan. The film features Kate Siegel and John Gallagher Jr. starring opposite each other as victim and predator in a tense, home-invasion thriller. Next is an anthology film centered around a years worth of holidays from Vertical Entertainment and XYZ Films called, you guessed it, HOLIDAYS. The eight segments feature directors Dennis Widmyer, Kevin Kolsch, Gary Shore, Nicholas McCarthy, Sarah Adina Smith, Anthony Scott Burns, Scott Stewart, Adam Egypt Mortimer and Kevin Smith.
Dave drives the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment sharing information about a variety of news from the previous week: ToHo releases a Godzilla trailer, Marvel shares the first teaser for Doctor Strange and Juan Antonio Bayona lands the job directing Jurassic World 2. In addition, the Grue-Crew announce the first HNR convention appearance for 2016: DragonCon (September 2 - 5, Atlanta, GA)!
Co-hosts Doc Rotten, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas 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! (Brought to you by Gruesome Magazine)
