Blumhouse delivers MARTYRS, a remake of the French film of the same name from 2008 from Pascal Laugier - a film that helped usher in the "extreme" genre of European films. Kevin Goetz and Michael Goetz direct the new version from a script by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) with a watered down US slant. As The Black Saint says, the remake has no "balls." Oh, no.
Dave begins the HORROR NEWS OF THE WEEK segment with news about the passing of another beloved legend, Alan Rickman. C'mon 2016, you're kicking us in the balls here. WTF? Also in the news, we discuss Rocky Horror Picture Show, Deadpool and 10 Cloverfield Lane!
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 Nightmare Code)
