Check out some Kong: Skull Island reviews here. Start out with two great crews talking about their takes on the film from two of the best podcasts out there. Then head over to Needless Things and check out my take on the big ape’s newest journey to the big screen.
Plus, give a listen to the other stuff the guys over at the ESO and HNR podcasts are talking about as well. If you’ve never given these podcasts a listen before, you’ll enjoy them both while finding out a lot of cool stuff that’s coming fandom’s way. If you like them, the ESO and HNR podcasts can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, and other fine platforms that carry podcasts as well as streaming on their websites at the links I’ve provided below.
Oh, and check out the Needless Things podcast every Friday at those same platforms and at the same website as my review.

[Podcast] – Kong: Skull Island (2017) – Episode 206 – Horror News Radio
“Legendary continues their MonsterVerse with the release of Kong: Skull Island, following up the American version of Godzilla (2014). With director Jordan Vogt-Roberts at the helm, the film is a B-movie picture with an A-movie cast and budget, including increasing Kong’s size to become over 100 feet tall. It may be the best big dumb monster movie ever. The Grue-crew hunker down in the podcast jungle to share their thoughts on the furry Kaiju beast and his battles with helicopters, a giant octopus, some deadly “skull crawlers”, and one mean looking Samuel L. Jackson. While the film is a gas, it may be the stinger that has the crew all giddy.
Dave is back with another edition of Horror News of the Week with talk of Behind the Mask getting a comic book, another Friday the 13th game trailer, and Netflix picking up the Godzilla anime feature. HNR and Gruesome Magazine are heading to a number of horror conventions and film festival in the coming months with Joey Fittos covering Monster-Mania this past weekend and Doc Rotten and John Black heading to Mad Monster Party Carolina, March 24-26, 2017.
Co-hosts Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! Oh, and don’t forget – Stump the Saint! (Brought to you by Gruesome Magazine)”
