Poor Josh (Jeremiah Watkins) has no idea what he is in store for. Dun-Dun-Duuunn!!

Review: i-Lived (2015)
Having enjoyed the Franck Khalfoun remake of Maniac – which was covered on one of the early episodes of HNR, the Grue-Crew was intrigued by his follow up feature, i-Lived. Sadly, however, the results were not as enthusiastic. Oh, my. While Thomas just comes out against the film the remaining crew try – oh, they try – to find something positive to say. Still, the discussion is lively and Santos points out that the review on HorrorNews.net proclaimed it one of the best of 2015. So…what do we know?
