The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into the top box office spot this weekend with Marc Webb directing and Andrew Garfield starring as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. 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.
Co-hosts Doc Rotten, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! The Black Saint’s Horror Trivia Contest continues this week with the Anchor Bay Entertainment Blu-Ray Giveaway: Mr. Jones.
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.
