The Grue-crew venture off to Ireland to encounter the monsters hiding in the woods in Corin Hardy's creature feature The Hallow. Joseph Mawle and Bojana Novakovic star as a young couple who have recently moved into a remote Irish countryside only to trespass upon and encounter a gaggle of deadly creatures known as the Hallow. Cool stuff!

This week's main review is geared for fans of creature feature films. The Hallow introduces a collection of horrifying beasts that live hidden deep in the Irish woods who only come out when their land is trespassed upon. If they do happen to venture out from the confines of their wooded canopies, beware! They mean you all kinds of harm. The Grue-crew recap and review this intriguing and unique horror feature.
The New York City Horror Film Festival screened this past weekend at Times Scares in the heart of New York City. Santo Ellin Jr., The Black Saint, is here to share his adventures at the festival - along with seeing fellow American Horror Story Fan Podcast co-host Christopher G. Moore and his film Knob Goblins. He talks about some of his favorites from the festival and announces the winners from the weekend.
Thomas steps in for Dave to share the Horror News of the Week. This week starts off with the sad news of the passing of Leatherface himself, the iconic horror legend Gunnar Hansen, who brought the masked madman to life in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. In TV news, Jeffery Dean Morgan is now cast as villainous and monstrous Negan on The Walking Dead. Neca is releasing a life size egg and face-hugger from Aliens and it looks amaze-balls.
