Podcast: Monster Movie Podcast Episode 20 – V/H/S – The Bay – Detention
Beginning with episode 20, regular HNN contributor Doc Rotten and HorrorNews Net team up to bring you the Monster Movie Podcast as it becomes the latest addition to the Horror New Net’s Podcasts from Hell. Each week, Doc Rotten and the guest hosts review the latest theatrical or VOD release, preview an upcoming horror trailer and review a DVD / Blu-Ray release, all the while focusing on the monsters that haunt, terrorize and stalk the movies.
Join us this week for found footage succubi, demons & slashers carving away at their victims, an infestation of parasites worming their way through a small Maryland town, and a deranged serial killer slashing his (or her) way through a the class of Grizzly Creek High. Thomas returns as special guest host, joining Doc Rotten for a VOD review, a trailer preview and a DVD review.
Up first is the much anticipated review of the VOD release of the found footage anthology film V/H/S featuring directors such as Ti (The Innkeepers) West, Glenn McQuaid, Adam Windgard, Joe Swanberg, David Bruckner and Radio Silence. The film spotlights a slew of monsters from winged demons to slashers to paranormal activity along with ample amounts of mayhem and gore.
The trailer preview this week is for Barry Levinsonâ€™s next release, the found footage virus film The Bay. The trailer promises creepy crawlies digging into the populace of a small coastal Maryland town, plenty of chaos and carnage and the hint of some zombie action.
For the DVD review this week, Thomas smacks Doc Rotten upside the head with Joseph Kahnâ€™s hyper-kinetic release Detention starring Josh Hutcherson from The Hunger Games. Thomas rails on the film while Doc desperately tries to find the good buried beneath all the confusing retro-90â€²s references and bizarre plot twists.
