Gruesome Magazine - Horror Movie Reviews and Interviews

Oct 1, 2018

This week, the Grue-Crew go "Home Alone" horror-movie-style and face the Elder Gods and the Umbrella of Love and Mind. Two new films are reviewed this week. The first is KNUCKLEBALL from director Michael Peterson featuring the always-fantastic Michael Ironside. And the second film is HOUSEWIFE from director Can Evrenol delivering a Turkish horror film about a very Lovecraftian threat in a delirious Giallo setting.  Doc Rotten and Vanessa Thompson from Horror News Radio along with Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era share their thoughts about this week's awesome collection of streaming horror films.
