The Shining (1980) – Episode 125 – Decades of Horror 1980s

“Great party, isn’t it?” The ghosts are all calling this party a big success. Congrats to Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) for pulling it off. Especially with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) constantly nagging him about “please don’t kill us.” Pfft. Family, am I right? The Shining is a pretty big example of Stephen King adaptations, one commonly derided for not being too close to the book. Did Stanley Kubrick’s lack of faithfulness stop it from being covered on...

Eps 240 – Thor: Ragnarok (2017) – Creep 2 (2017) – Horror News Radio

What?! Horror News Radio covering another superhero movie?! I know some of you may be pretty Thor about that, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as The Grue Crew chums around Sakaar for Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi – the Kiwi director behind What We Do In the Shadows – puts his distinctive humorous stamp on the Marvel formula with charm and gusto anyone can appreciate.
