The Grue-crew gather to take a look at the long delayed US release of the Eli Roth produced flick, CLOWN. The film is from director Jon Watts and features Andy Powers (check out the Gruesome Magazine Interview here), Laura Allan and Peter Stromare. Watts, who also directed Cop Car which Thomas discussed on HNR episode 124, is set to direct Marvel’s first foray into Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe with Spider-Man: Homecoming. The effects are strong, the gore is plentiful and the lore is interesting, providing Watts a great venue to expand his short into a feature length film.

“They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.” – the tagline for Demons only begins to hint at the bizarre story behind Lamberto Bava’s creature feature described in another tagline as “an Orgy of Bloodshed.” All the characteristics of 80s Italian horror films are here: a cast of unusual characters, a nonsensical plot and graphic, bloody special effects. And that’s not the half of it. Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. Moore tackle another gruesome horror film from the 1980s. Guest-host, The Black Saint (Horror News Radio) joins the crew to discuss Demons.

“Hell has just been relocated!” – the tagline for  Galaxy of Terror is short and sweet, no where near as convoluted and odd as the film itself. The Roger Corman cult classic from director Bruce D. Clark features an extraordinary cast, including Robert Englund, Sid Haig, Ray Walston and Eric Moran, and a series of scattershot special effects drenched in Eighties drippy, gooey goodness. Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. Moore tackle another gruesome horror film from the 1980s.

“It’s smooth and creamy. It’s low calorie and delicious. And it kills. It’s The Stuff!” – the tagline for Larry Cohen’s cult classic from 1985, The Stuff, threatens in a heavy handed – but comically effective – manner. Following up his successful low budget horror films It’s Alive (1974) and Q (1982), Cohen once again employs Michael Moriarty to face the satirical horrors the inventive director cooks up for him – in this case, a tasty alien goo that bubbles up out of the Earth that takes over the bodies of whomever devours it. Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. …
