Originally Aired: 11/03/17 – Review Thor: Ragnarok. Talk with directors John Harrison about his Horrorama IV appearance and also Peter Ricq of Dead Shack.

We talk with director Peter Ricq. Peter’s new film, Dead Shack, is now available on iTunes and VOD. We got the chance to see it at Toronto After Dark 2017 and can confirm that it’s a hilarious horror comedy. Peter joins us to chat about the making of the film. A group of teens on a weekend getaway at a secluded cabin in the woods soon find themselves fighting off a serious threat to their lives. Not only that they must save their hard-partying, drunk and stoned parents from a predatory neighbour who is hell-bent on feeding them all to her undead family. Lauren Holly, Valerie Tian, Donavon Stinson, Lizzie Boys, and June B. Wilde star in this Canadian horror.

Our review of Thor: Ragnarok starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett. Synopsis: Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.

We also talk with director John Harrision. John has had a storied career in film and television and was in town for Horrorama-Toronto IV (November 4th and 5th). John talks with us about his past films and shows. John Harrison began his career directing rock videos and working as 1st Asst. Director for George A. Romero. Harrison wrote and directed multiple episodes of Romero’s classic TV series, Tales from the Darkside as well as Tales from the Darkside: The Movie.
