Hallo folks! The Horror Movie Show is moderately proud to bring you episode #153, hosted as always by Mark & Jerry. This week the boys of summer discuss a handful of movies — mostly new, but one lovely chestnut as well.

Tom Cruise‘s summer blockbuster is another science-fiction adventure: Edge of Tomorrow. Sure, the title sounds like a soap opera from the ’60s, but this tale of a guy caught in a temporal loop is a cross between Groundhog Day & Starship Troopers.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a lukewarm reception on its release. Jerry & Mark claw their way through the sticky webbing to sling their opinions on one of Marvel Comics’ usually reliable characters.

Next up is that chestnut already mentioned: 1979′s Nosferatu the Vampyre. Directed by the great Werner Herzog & starring Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula, this German take on the classic bloodsucker tale is considered by many to be the best vampire movie ever made. That’s a bold claim.

From 2008 comes writer-director Steven Sheil‘s Mum & Dad. A brutal story of a family of psychos & victims, this little-known flick is worth seeing. And last but not least is The Returned, a low-budget effort set in a world in which zombies have been cured — but the cure is about to run out. Time, gentlemen, please!
