Poor, poor Will Graham - his carefully orchestrated plan, crafted step by step over thirteen episodes came to a crushing, bloody, violent conclusion as he discovers it is far more difficult to fool Hannibal Lecter than he ever imagined. Great characters continue to blunder into their colliding paths, Margot and Mason Verger, Frederick Chilton, Abel Giddeon, Abigail Hobbs and Freddie Lounds. The dialog is astounding, the cinematography astonishing and the direction far exceeds the television format. Join Thomas, Dave, Christopher and Doc as they fondly remembers their favorites scenes, characters, encounters and shocking discoveries.

Maleficent (2014) 
The grue-crew drag Dave kicking and screaming (or rather snoring, ha!) into watching the latest high profile live-action fantasy offering from the Disney powerhouse, Maleficent.

Every actor has a fit, a character mold, that they build their careers on and expand from, at least starting out. The bad guy, the girl next door, the cop, the angel. It is an approach to finding roles and networking that can create a successful and lucritive brand. There is a delicate balance between working a brand and being typecast. Actor Andy Gates joins us to discuss the evolution of his brand as the guy next door, the every man and the roles landed with this approach.

"I am enchanted ... and ...terrified." Tonight is the night, the confrontation between Hannibal Lecter and Mason Verger with Will Graham caught in the middle. And Hannibal does not disappoint in what is quite possibly the best show of the season featuring Michael Pitt giving what should be an award winning performance. The entire sequence between Hannibal and Mason while Mason is under the influence is incredibly entertaining and has co-hosts, Thomas, Dave, Doc and Christopher, smiling from ear to ear.

The penultimate episode of NBC's hit horror tv show Hannibal is brilliant. Director Christopher G. Moore is back to guide show hosts Thomas, Dave and Doc through each and every conversation in Tome-Wan between Hannibal and Will and Hannibal and Mason and Jack and Will. Thomas is thrilled with the Mason line "I have a taste and consistency that's similar to a a chicken gizzard. I'm full of myself!" while Doc likes the whole bit about "Eat my nose?" Or it may be Mason's confession that he planned to feed Will to the pigs or Hannibal's gaping glance at Mason sticking his father's knife into Hannibal's chair. The show is full of little nuggets - incredible television.

Michael (Boardwalk Empire) Pitt paints a disgustingly vile figure with his version of Mason Verger. He is a despicable human being stealing the tears from a child and a child from his sister. Vile! But his song bird may be cooked as Will remains strong enough not to fall into Hannibal greater plan revealing the puppet master to the monster. Elsewhere, Alana Bloom is floored by a shocking reveal that has the audience and the podcast show's hosts breathing a sigh of relief. Thomas, Christopher, Dave and Doc examine each plot point with only 2 more show left.

The film introduces Harry Osborn as the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), Max Dillon as Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Aleksei Sytsevich as The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Is this shades of Batman and Robin syndrome? Say it isn't so!

 

Dave ramps up the news of the week with bits about Halloween 3, Dan Curtis' Dracula with Jack Palance and the epic battle promised in the upcoming American-ized Godzilla film.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) 
Our favorite wall crawler returns in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 bringing with him Electro, The Green Goblin and The Rhino. To some this is all a big bag of nonsense, for others it is an emotional roller-coaster focusing on the story of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Some of it works. Some of it fails miserably. The grue-crew has strong opinions on it, 'Nuff Said.

 

Horror News of the Week for 05/05/2014 
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with news of Halloween 3 which may or may not be in 3D. Stephen King fans are all excited about the promo for his next novel Mr. Mercedes. Was that Pennywise? Not many horror fans are aware that horror great Dan Curtis produced and directed a televised version of Dracula starring Jack Palance. The film is getting a Blu-Ray release. More Godzilla news building up to a battle of kaiju monsters. Finally, the WGN television show Salem is getting renewed and Doc has something to say about this!

"This little piggy went EEEEEHHHHH all the way home?" Mason Verger terrorizes his sister Margot as he drops a meat puppet version of her into a pit of hungry pigs. Thomas, Dave and Doc are once again joined by director Christopher G. Moore to discuss NBC's hit television show Hannibal. But what is the meaning of long pig. Oh, Freddie.

Finally, we are introduced to the long anticipated character, Mason Verger portrayed by Michael (Boardwalk Empire) Pitt. Who knew he would end up a mix of a random James Bond villain and 80's pop star Thomas Dolby. Regardless he is ever bit as unnerving as expected. The show goes into bizarre territories with a blend of two simultaneous love scenes between Will & Margot and Hannibal & Alana with a little of the Hannibalized-Wendigo sprinkled in for good measure. It is a shocking episode that puts Will in a very precarious place, no longer seeing good and evil.

The Quiet Ones ushers the return of Hammer Films to the theaters after the success of their last film The Woman in Black. Doc and Santos dig the Seventies feels and Vixen returns to share her thoughts on the first horror film she has seen where she did not have to cover her eyes. Yeah, there is some debate on how scary it actually is. Sigh.

 

Doc discusses the slasher film Camp Dread in this week's What Have You Been Watching segment while Dave checks in with the Horror News of the Week with news about Friday the 13th and Penny Dreadful.

The Quiet Ones (2014) 
What the heck happened? A great idea and a great cast squandered for a mediocre horror film - although The Quiet Ones is a tight, entertaining little thriller. The scares are forced and few and far between but the acting is terrific with Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke getting most of the recognition. But what happened to the scares? Listen to the grue-crew investigate during the podcast to find out.

 

Horror News of the Week for 04/28/2014 
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with his favorite horror icon making it to serial television, Jason Voorhees with a Friday the 13th show. The trailer for As Above, So Below may have been the scariest thing about The Quiet Ones - d'oh.  Kevin Smith returns to horror with his Tusk cast in tow to create Anti-Claus, as holiday horror anthology. Maybe. Santos nearly throws up with the disclaimer that Universal's Dracula Untold described as a "family fantasy film." Oh, dear. Showtime is presenting the first episode of their horror show Penny Dreadful a full month ahead of its premiere date.

 

What Have You Been Watching: Camp Dread 
Danielle Harris and Eric Roberts lead the cast for Harrison Smith's slasher film, Camp Dread. Doc steps in with this week's What Have You Been Watching segment to review the film trying to convince Santos he needs to give it a try if not for Roberts deliriously campy delivery then for the twist ending.

Looking at the carnage of blood, flesh and bones scattered on the gore-scarred ice, Will concludes "It's not an animal. It's a man who wants to be an animal." Episode 9 for NBC's hit television show Hannibal skirts the supernatural with a man who becomes a beast in Shiizakana. The show dances with the slasher formula with gruesome gory results that have Thomas, Dave, Doc and special guest Christopher G. Moore rabid out this week's visual treats.

The coolest thing about episode 9 is Will turning the tables on Hannibal proving he is indeed master fisherman, bating and nearly hooking Dr. Lector. But don't be fooled, Hannibal has a few more tricks up his sleeve quickly stepping in to coach the killer-of-the-week to his next move - attacking Will Graham. Let's just say "Even Steven" and cut to the chase!

NBC's HANNIBAL trades in subtlety for bright red blood and gore this week as the dialog takes a minor pinch according to Thomas and guest co-host, director Christopher G. Moore.  Regardless, we are all treated to another marvelous, thrilling and engaging episode as we inch closer to that dramatic confrontation between Hannibal and Jack Crawford heavily hinted at during this season's opening shots. The anticipation is a killer.

Will is a free man and back under the care of the good doctor but who is analyzing who in this cat and mouse game of “who knows what about whom”.  Dr. Bloom and Dr. Lecter continue their “unholy union” and it’s a not a good episode to be a horse.

In many cases, working on an independent film requires its creators to wear many hats. It is often a necessity of time, money and creative control to tackle as many roles as possible to get these projects completed reliably, quickly and on time. As the creative force behind White Lotus Productions, Lou Simon finds herself steering the ship as writer, director, producer, editor, anything and everything that she is called upon to do. The results are phenomenal as proven by her recent promising new entry into slasher films, HazMat.

 

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

She shares how her background outside of film provides her with a unique approach to filming and marketing her projects. She reveals what it takes to create a film that will both satisfy her creative objective and produce a product that will appeal to audiences, investors and distributors: it is show business, after all. She also provides an exclusive peak into her upcoming film Agoraphobia.

Oculus (2014) 
While Doc and Dave agree that Mike Flanagan's chiller Oculus works as a great introductory horror film for non-horror fans, or a great "date movie," Santos and Thomas are not as supportive. The review heats up as the two sides discuss the film's successes and failures. An irritated Santos wants nothing to do with it; however, Dave shares he and his wife enjoyed the film greatly - his wife, who rarely likes horror films, wants to see it again. The film is creepy, full of atmosphere with terrific performances from its cast providing the film with a captivating set up but a divisive conclusion. The film is garnering strong reviews outside of HNR as it comes in at number 3 in the weekend box office, grossing $12 million in the U.S.

 

Top 5 Killer Inanimate Objects in Horror Films
Jumping off the haunted mirror in Oculus, Thomas leaps in to collect his top 5 killer inanimate objects in horror films:

 

  • House (1977) 
  • Rubber (2010) 
  • Christine (1983) 
  • Death Bed: The Bed That Eats People (1977) 
  • Maximum Overdrive (1986)

As Fatal Pictures begins work on its fourth horror short Heir, producer Zach Green and director Richard Powell are bringing back many familiar faces from their first three films, including Worm and Familiar: cinematographer Michael Jari Davidson (Familiar); special effects team The Butchershop; and lead actor Robert Nolan. This specific group of talented film makers make up a tight nit group of artists Zach and Richard trust with their vision. Each individual is committed to creating the best film possible as evident by a history of award wining films, a successful Kickstarter crowd funding campaign and advanced early buzz on the script.

 

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sibling podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

 

Producer Zach Green joins Doc to provide a peak behind the curtain into the world of producing one of their films, what it takes to see the project from its conception all the way through to completion including appearing on Fearnet's online short library. Zach shares the emotions and logic behind handing off the editorial duties to someone else, a skill he is both educated for and personally reveres. He speaks to the talent behind Fatal Pictures films beginning with his friend and co-owner Richard Powell and continuing on to actors Robert Nolan and Bill Oberst  Jr. He reveals how early networking benefits a film before it even before the director steps behind the camera building strong relationships both with professionals and with fans.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) 
Santos gives Doc holy hell for spoiling a major reveal from Captain America: The Winter Soldier in his review for HorrorNews.Net, but it still did not detract him from enjoying the film emmensely. In fact, the Marvel film earns high praise from every HNR host this week with a few (Doc and Thomas) debating if it tops The Avengers as the best film from Marvel thus far. Everything in the film gets its chance to be discussed from Chris Evans as Steve Rogers to Robert Redford to Nick Fury and his awesome car chase to The Winter Soldier himself.
