On this special episode of HNR, the extended Grue-Crew share their memories and thoughts of Santos Ellin, Jr. (The Black Saint) who we suddenly lost on Thursday, September 21, 2017. For over 4 and a half years Santos joined Doc, Dave, & Thomas on HNR providing his views on horror films, his wit, and his laughter. Through his generosity, his spirit, and his kind heart (hidden under that gruff exterior), Santos had a profound effect on many of the Grue-Crew family, friends, filmmakers, and fans. Tonight we spend some time reflecting on those past years sharing touching moments, bursts of surprise and laughter he provided, and the warm hugs he shared with the horror community. The Grue-Crew include Joseph Perry, Chad Hunt, Joey Fittos, Adam Thomas, Jeff Mohr, Jerry Chandler, Bill Mulligan, and Sammie Cassell; family and filmmakers include Ivan Ellin, Lou Simon, and Patrick Rea.  Fans and listeners include Jeff Larrimore, NJ Horror, Andy L., Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff, Andrew Gillis, Dallas Nostromo, Brian S., Christine Collingwood, EJ Hardin, Carrie Cook, Damian Osoteo, Tim Colley, Carlo Villafuerte, Joshua J. Hardway, Yonathan Habtemichael, Sam Brutuxan, and Martin Avalos.

RIP Santos Ellin, Jr.
