They venture into the apex of the mysterious man made marvel only to encounter the unholy horrors that lie beneath. The HNR grue crew review the film.

Review: The Pyramid (2014)
Producer Alexandre Aja delivers dangerous mazes, flesh hungry Sphinx creature and Anubis in his latest film The Pyramid. While the film delivers a bevy of gory effects but fails to bring much scares or horror. While Doc and Vixen find enough to entertain them for the 89 minute run time, The Black Saint can’t help but wonder why they remade As Above, So Below. Bwah hah hah.
What Have You Been Watching: Z Nation season finale
Dave and Doc freely admit they have been following Asylum’s Z Nation airing on SyFy. Despite the low budget and cheesy approach to the show, Z Nation is consistently fun, in their opinion. The Black Saint, Thomas and Vixen refuse to believe them. So sad. Doc shares his thoughts on the finale of the first season of Z Nation.
