Happy Halloween 2014. Horror News Radio is celebrating with a packed episode reviewing FOUR new films. PG13 horror crapfest Ouija is up first with Doc giving it a solid ZERO. Oh, my!

What Have You Been Watching: Constantine on NBC
Two genres of TV are dominating television screens this fall: horror and super heroes. This week, we get the combination of the two with DC comics supernatural hero, of sorts, Constantine. The Black Saint, Doc and Thomas all share their first impressions and argue over whether the pilot episode succeeds or even has promise for the show to continue past episode five. What?
