Eps 227 – The Dark Tower – 68 Kill – Horror News Radio

The Grue-Crew head to Mid-world to help the Gunslinger defend The Dark Tower (2017) from the evil Man in Black. Thomas and Doc set their eyes on a cool 68 thousand big ones for the VOD release of 68 Kill (2017). Dave launches into the Horror News of the Week with the passing of Haruo Nakajima, the man in the Godzilla suit. He also discusses the 2 disc collector’s edition of The Dead Next Door and the upcoming remake of Death Wish from Eli Roth, featuring Bruce Willis.  Closing out the show Thomas announces the winner of last month’s Stump the Saint prize!
