Gruesome Magazine - Horror Movie Reviews and Interviews

May 15, 2018

This week, the Grue-Crew survive an encounter with a ferocious sea-god, a walking nightmare, and... David Tennant. First up is the feature film Soft Matter from director Jim Hickcox featuring a dancing monster made of trash bags, duct tape, and really fresh Kicks. What? The next film, Gehenna Where Death Lives from director Hiroshi Katagiri, features Doug Jones and Lance Henriksen in the cast...for a few precious minutes - thankfully, the rest of the film is interesting as well. Rounding out the show is the theatrical release of Bad Samaritan from director Dean Devlin and it features David Tennant as a serial killer - what else do you need to know. The hunt is on for the diamond in the rough. Doc Rotten from Horror News Radio and Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era are joined by Rafe Telsch and Vanessa Thompson.
