Eps 160 – Zoombies – Game of Thrones Season 6 – Horror News Radio

Play

The Grue-crew wildly disagree about the Asylum film ZOOMBIES but have the best time discussing the shlock-fest on this episode of HNR. The Black Saint is all about it, calling it one of his favorite for 2016 while Vixen, of all people, steals the night with the best quote ever: “So much awful packed Into 1 movie.” The film is bonkers with zombie gorillas, koalas and giraffes – yes, zombie giraffes! When a flesh eating monkey throws bloody eyeballs at the camera like it’s flinging monkey-poo, you know you have a winner.

Chop-Top joins Drayton and Leatherface as they encounter a pair ready for their blood rampage in DJ Stretch Brock and Lieutenant ‘Lefty’ Enright.

Seemingly out of nowhere Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures released 10 Cloverfield Lane, a tangentially related film to Cloverfield (2008) from J.J. Abrams and director Dan Trachtenberg. The sci-fi / thriller hybrid features a tour-de-force performance from its cast, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and a tense Hitchcockian approach to the conflicts between the main characters locked in a bunker as the world above experiences an unknown calamity. The Grue-crew dissect and discuss the plot, the acting, the directing and…the surprises.
