Eps 72 – Life After Beth – Afflicted – Horror News Radio

Life After Beth (2014) proves that a zombie romcom is a difficult proposition regardless of how fantastic the cast may be. Dane DeHaan, Aubrey Plaza,  John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon and 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.

Afflicted (2013), on the other hand, proves how a well constructed story and a pair of leads with authentic bro-chemistry is capable of reinvigorating the found footage sub genre. Afflicted is the film no one knows about but everyone should. A terrific little film that has the …

Lucy (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.

Dave ramps up the horror news of the week with tons of SDCC news, even more than what was on the SDCC Bonus episode of HNR. Joseph Perry returns with more on PiFan. And Thomas …
