Eps 213 – Colossal (2017) – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew clash over the Nacho Vigalondo film Colossal, a killer Kaiju film with a kick-ass twist. It is also one of the most original films you will see this year. Thomas surprises everyone else on the podcast with a positive review of the Blumhouse film that snuck into theaters this weekend, Sleight from writer/director J.D. Dillard. Dave grabs the Horror News of the Week reigns with the sad news of the passing of legendary director Jonathan Demme, the man who gave horror fans Silence of the Lambs. He also shares news of M. Night Shyamalan’s next film, the sequel to Unbreakable and Split titled Glass, coming our way January 2019 and the announcement that David Fincher is all but signed on the dotted line to direct Brad Pitt in World War Z 2. Who knew that would be a thing? Thomas and Santos participate in a battle of wits with this week’s Stump the Saint!
