The Grue Crew are joined by our very special guest Paul Cardullo as we discuss films that give us a bit of deja vu. First up is the surprise hit of the recent Friday the 13th weekend Happy Death Day. Our second feature is the gory romp The Babysitter which you can now stream on Netflix to keep yourself satiated before Stranger Things Season 2 arrives. Thomas also gives us a report from his trip to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida. Let’s not forget that Dave steps in with Horror News of the Week featuring the X-Men going spooky for The New Mutantsa news update about the upcoming Halloween film and a Friday the 13th fan film which may just be the best excuse for a sequel we’ll be getting for awhile. Spooktacular times are here again!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans. You can always reach out via email at feedback(AT)horrornewsradio(DOT)com or find us on Twitter: Doc Rotten | Dave Dreher | Thomas Mariani. Also, like us on Facebook and join the Horror News Radio Facebook Group.
