Today DeeOmen and The Blogging Banshee have three exciting reviews for you. First we discuss the highly anticipated French cannibal thriller, Raw.

Episode 633 of Horror Heroes is all about King Kong! Since most people are familiar with the original 1933 King Kong and the 2005 King Kong by Peter Jackson, DeeOmen and The Blogging Banshee decided to focus on the lesser-known Kong remake. We had quite a lot to say about the 1976 King Kong. Then we compare that version with the latest version, Kong: Skull Island. Not only is this film the newest version of King Kong, but it also made the biggest changes to the story. We end the show with news about upcoming films and advance screenings we will be giving away tickets to this month. If you live in the Phoenix, AZ area keep an eye out on our social media pages to see how you can get free movie passes to those advance screenings.

After that we go straight into the phenomenal XX, a horror anthology completely written and directed by females. We end our reviews with the highly anticipated thriller from Jordan Peele, Get Out. Be sure to stay tuned after the reviews as we discuss festival films we’ve reviewed that are available for the masses, upcoming horror releases, and advance screenings we will hold contests for in the Phoenix area.

CORRECTION: In this episode when we discussed the new Halloween film that was just announced we referenced the wrong Danny McBride. The Danny McBride who will be working on the film is known for acting in This Is The End and Pineapple Express. He also wrote the screenplay for Your Highness. We apologize for the confusion!
