The Audrey II is all the rage thanks to Seymour Krelborn (Rick Moranis) and his secret gardening tips. Those tips just so happen to involve blood coming from the tips of his fingers. Pricked from the tips, to be exact.

Crawling into theaters this past weekend, the latest horror film from Blumhouse fails to make a dent in the box office. The possession fueled “exorcise” in futility, INCARNATE, features a decent cast — Aaron Eckhart, David Mazouz (Gotham), Emjay Anthony (Krampus), Catalina Sandino Moreno — and is directed by Brad Peyton. The film starts off with an interesting idea of “evicting” demons from the minds of their hosts instead of exorcising them. Interesting. But it takes more than that to impress the Grue-crew.

A far more impressive endeavor comes from HBO in the form of the WESTWORLD which wrapped its first season. …

This  week HNR covers the film festival favorite – awarded best horror film at the New York City Horror Film in 2016 – NIGHT OF SOMETHING STRANGE. The cast and crew behind this hilarious abomination deserve props for pushing the envelopes as far as possible and getting the most out of their budget.

“You can’t tame what’s meant to be wild, Doc. It just ain’t natural.” – John Carradine sets the cast straight with his witty and biting dialog provided by writer John Sayles for Joe Dante’s horror classic The Howling. Yes, the “other” werewolf film from 1981 – a bit unfair comparison, certainly, because this film truly stands on its own. Rob Bottin brings his own unique approach to the transformation scene rivaling all other wolf-man films. Let the fun begin! Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. Moore tackle another gruesome horror film from the 1980s.
