The grue-crew is back for the second episode of The Official HorrorNews.Net Podcast. This week is all about Dark Feed from the writers of John Carpenter’s The Ward. Join co-hosts Doc Rotten, Dave Dreher, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr. and Thomas Mariani as they recap and review the film. In addition, Dave has a spooktacular interview with the directors, Mike and Shawn Rasmussen.
Once Dave has hold of the reins, he doesn’t let go, he follows his review with a look at this weeks Horror News. Up first is the 3D/BluRay/DVD release of Texas Chainsaw 3D featuring a commentary of the film from the actors of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Dave ruins Doc’s and Thomas’ day by sharing the 64% drop in box office for Evil Dead (2013) from last week’s take. Santos and Dave rub in the told-you-so’s. Next is Scream Factory’s top notch BluRay release of John Carpenter’s The Fog. And last up is news about Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow: War of the Dead, the sequel to the gory comedy hit, Dead Snow.
