The Most Anticipated Horror Films of 2015 – Episode 94 – Horror News Radio

With the beginning of a new year, the cold weather, icy roads and crappy theatrical offerings signal the annual ritual of examining what is coming in the next 12 months for the horror movie fan. That’s right:  The Most Anticipated Horror Movies of 2105. Unlike 2014, the sheer variety and breadth of offerings promise an eventful and, dare we say it, promising year in terror films. The Grue-Crew start it off with 10 films to look out for.

Dave  shares  the horror news of the week with news about  X-Files,  Hannibal  and  Scream Queens.  Doc Rotten and The Black Saint take a look at an early 2015 winner,  The Atticus Institute.

Co-hosts  Doc Rotten,  Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,  Dave Dreher,  Thomas Mariani  and  Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week!  This week HNR reveal  the winner of the vinyl bank giveaway from  Diamond Select Toys  and announce a new contest featuring the Blu-Ray of  Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard.

 What Have You Been Watching: The Atticus Institute (2015)  

Seemingly out of nowhere comes a small, independent found footage possession thriller called  The Atticus Institute. The film is far better than most of the wretched garbage that gets dumped into the theaters in January and yet it is relegated to VOD and DVD. This film is a rare treat, a movie that treats its subject matter with imagination and respect creating a thrilling and engaging horror tale. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten both join in to champion this early 2015 favorite.
