Podcast 162 — VHS Viral, Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead, Dracula Untold, The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014), Alien Abduction, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

vhs-viral-5Only new movies this week, folks!

Top of the day to you, our dear friends. For your listening pleasure, another episode of The Horror Movie Show hosted by sons of fun Jerry & Mark. Put away your dust cloths & cleaning supplies. This special podcast features only brand-new movies.

First up is the third flick in the V/H/S series & contains some pretty wild sequences. As with the majority of anthology movies, VHS Viral does not win each time, but the guys believe it scores a solid 50 per cent, so not bad. Listen in for all the details.

The sequel to director Tommy Wirkola‘s first zombie movie gets full marks from our hapless hosts. Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead is funny, fast-paced & furious as survivor Martin (Vegar Hoel) continues to battle undead Nazi soldiers in the snowy wilds of Norway. As an extra feature, you can read Jerry’s recent interview with Tommy here:

A big Hollywood budget means Dracula Untold looks good, but is the story & acting worth digging up? It can be difficult to take on such a well-known character & make the character live again. The guys discuss the merits of Drac’s latest outing.

Sort of a remake, sort of a sequel, The Town that Dreaded Sundown is an interesting exercise. Likewise for Alien Abduction, about a family menaced by maniacal Martians.

Finally, another sequel — Sin City: A Dame to Kill For — divides the guys as to its watchability. Is it still new & original, or simply more of the same? Frank Miller strikes again.
