TuskÂ (2014)Â is Kevin’s Smith second horror comedy with the script germinating from the SModcast podcast: episodeÂ 259 The Walrus and The Carpenter. The film may be a bit uneven and controversial but the performance by Michael Parks as Howard Howe has a number of the grue-crew saying he should be considered for an Academy Award…but realize, sadly, it never will.

HoneymoonÂ (2014)Â spins the tale of a pair of newly weds heading to a mountain cabin for a week of bliss but discover something terrifyingly horrible instead. The Black Saint discovers a temporary cure for insomnia. Dwerp!

Considered a horror classic by many genre historians, The Wicker Man (1973) is the film for this episode. FeaturingÂ Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Eckland and Ingrid Pitt, the film from directorÂ Robin Hardy leads its audience on a leisurely paced path to one of the more iconic endings in horror. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

The Dead 2Â (2014)Â is not only the swag in the prize pack from Anchor Bay Entertainment in this week’s trivia contest, it is also the topic of this week’s review. It’s zombie action set in India from The Ford Brothers who brought the horror communityÂ The Dead.Â

Haunted Houses are a tough genre to film. They can easily come off hokey or silly. There are some classics though,Â Haunting,Â TheÂ Amityville HorrorÂ andÂ Poltergeist. But many are overlooked and forgotten. One such film isÂ The Legend of Hell HouseÂ from director John Hough featuring Pamela Franklin, Roddy McDowall, Clive Revill and Gayle Hunnicutt. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten are joined by award winning director Christopher G. Moore to discuss the British classic horror film.
As Above, So BelowÂ (2014)Â fails to make an impression at the box office and leaves Santos underwhelmed. Doc, on the other hand, fights for the film in a heated discussion about the Dowdle Brothers, Perdita Weeks and found footage. The film gets the full-on HNR treatment.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill ForÂ (2014) is Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s return to Marv, Dwight and Nancy. It is all style over substance in glorious black and white with spectacular 3D and fun performances from Mickey Rourke and Eva Green. But Mr. Miller may have slid too far into seedy life behind Sin City without any meaning.Â
Life After BethÂ (2014) proves that a zombie romcom is a difficult proposition regardless of how fantastic the cast may be. Dane DeHaan, Aubrey Plaza, Â John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon andÂ Anna Kendrick cannot save this humorless, lifeless horror comedy from writer/director Jeff Baena. All the pieces are there, they just never assemble into a cohesive whole. Sad.
AfflictedÂ (2013), on the other hand, proves how a well constructed story and a pair of leads with authentic bro-chemistry … Continue reading
Into the StormÂ (2014)Â blows into theaters this weekend and the grue-crew is here to review this disaster…uh…disaster film. The movieÂ is full of CGI effects providing a variety of tornado visuals and storm fueled action and destruction – it is all spectacle, baby, yeah.
DaveÂ sharesÂ the horror news of the week with the sad announcement of the passing ofÂ Marilyn Burns, Menahem Golan and Robin Williams as the crew share fond memories of their film careers and influence. Joseph … Continue reading
Guardians of the GalaxyÂ (2014) strikes gold at the box office. The risk pays off and Marvel has another huge hit. But what do the HNR grue-crew think of it? Will Dave finally like a super-hero movie?
DaveÂ sharesÂ the horror news of the week with the sad announcement of the passing of legendary make-up effects artists Dick Smith along with bits aboutÂ Ghostbusters 3Â andÂ Z-Nation. Dave also joins Doc in a mini-review of SyFy’sÂ Sharknado 2: The Second One.

LucyÂ (2014) embarks on a journey of the mind towing along tons of action and preposterous nonsense. The HNR grue-crew review and rip apart the latest film from direct Luc Besson starring the beautiful and talented Scarlett Johansson. Pretentious, silly and downright goofy fun, it is the Summer hit that had The Black Saint laughing his ass off. The problem is the film is not a comedy.

The Purge: AnarchyÂ (2014) picks up one year after the Purge presented last year except this entry follows Frank Grillo as Seargent Leo Barnes, a man on a mission to purge but runs into two sets of characters in deep doo doo deciding to help them survive the night. Capitalizing on the premise of The Purge, Anarchy takes the action to the streets to the satisfaction of the fans but forgets to bring characterization along with … Continue reading
Dawn of the Planet of the ApesÂ (2014) is the best example of a sequel done right! It perfectly expands and extends the marvelousÂ Rise of the Planet of the ApesÂ and intelligently provides the audience with a remarkable blend of action, drama, conflict and spectacle. The grue-crew gather to discuss the film and push for recognition for Andy Sirkis’ Oscar-worthy performance.

Deliver Us From EvilÂ (2014) is the latest horror film from directorÂ Scott (Sinister) Derrickson about a cop (Eric Bana) who discovers a strange killer who may be possessed. Dave is ecstatic that the HNR crew is finally getting back to a full-fledged theatrical horror film; however, the box office results do not support that the audience was interested in seeing a blend ofÂ The ExorcistÂ andÂ Seven.

Witching and BitchingÂ (2013 – Las brujas de Zugarramurdi) from director Alex de la Inglesia is destined to become a cult classic. It is a brilliant horror comedy that should not be missed. Doc, Thomas and Santos give the film rave reviews spotlighting many of the film’s biggest highlights.

This week we’re talking about an Italian Hard Rock band who left us with their self titled album then went MIA… Kult of the Skull God. Then we’re talking some Italian Zombie awesomeness in Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror.
The Human RaceÂ (2013) from director Paul Hough spins a combination of Battle Royale and Saw on its ears creating a terrifying tale that has Santos Ellin Jr. and Vixen singing its praises while Doc and Thomas are far less impressed. Kudos to Eddie McGee for portraying a complex heroic character. “Run or Die!”

Ah man… The two things we’re talking about today couldn’t fit together better… Quirky Space-Aged punk rock and a bizarre rock and roll slasher. That’s right folks, we’re talking about Hotlips Messiah and their 2009 LP called Mutants Unite. Then we chit chat about a movie that features possibly one of the most interesting slasher killers in Slumber Party Massacre 2.
