  • Dead Rising: Endgame

    23/06/2021 Duração: 01h14min

    Everyone in 2021 wants to blame Bill Gates for putting microchips in vaccination shots, but the practice was pioneered by Allstate pitchman Dennis Haysbert in the 2016 Dead Rising sequel Endgame.  Hallmark Channel hunk Jesse Metcalfe returns as the intrepid reporter hero, this time leading hackers and marksmen through a city overrun with zombies to rescue his missing camerawoman and avert genocide.  Find out if there’s an Afterlife for this undead video game franchise when you play the latest Now Playing Arcade installment. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

  • Dead Rising: Watchtower

    16/06/2021 Duração: 01h19min

    Why are the Dead Rising all over East Mission, Oregon if the government has a miracle drug that can prevent zombie outbreaks?  It’s all part of Operation Watchtower, a top secret plan to give the military unprecedented access to American lives.  But will anyone find out the truth if TV journalist Jesse Metcalfe insists on airing the story exclusively on middling streaming service Crackle?  And can this 2015 zom-com live up to the irreverence of the 2006 Capcom video game on which it’s based?  Find out on the latest Now Playing Arcade podcast! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

  • The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    09/06/2021 Duração: 01h30min

    It’s not The Devil, but Now Playing’s loyal listeners, that made Arnie, Majorie, and Stuart do another Conjuring film after so many hellish experiences in the franchise.  This time the Warrens are heading to court in the 1980s to help a man beat a murder rap by insisting he was possessed by a demon escaped from his waterbed.  Does Ed have the heart to keep fabricating these “true stories”, or are all these cons damning the demonologist to an early grave?  And will Lorraine finally summon green arrows by trailing a series of witch totems?  Listen and find out! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

    02/06/2021 Duração: 01h33min

    Blood-soaked prom queen... tween pyromaniac... axe wielding book critic… just some of the scary women that have leaped from the pages of Stephen King’s horror fiction onto the big screen. Now hardened New England housekeeper Dolores Claiborne is ready for her day in court. Will Kathy Bates eclipse the Oscar-winning work she did in Misery as she stands accused of pushing her cruel employer down the stairs? And will daughter Jennifer Jason Leigh fight for mama’s freedom knowing she did in dad years before? Find out on the latest King-cast. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

  • Army of the Dead

    25/05/2021 Duração: 02h08min

    George Clooney and his Ocean’s co-stars made casino heists look easy, but they never had to crack a safe being guarded by an Army of the Dead. Can Dave Bautista and his colorful crew of mercenaries bypass reanimated Elvis impersonators and a zombie white tiger to lay claim to a Vegas jackpot before nukes are dropped?  And is writer-director Zack Snyder pushing his luck by returning to the horror genre 15 years after his Dawn of the Dead remake?  Your chances for a good time always improve when you join the Now Playing hosts at the tables.  Listen Now! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

    19/05/2021 Duração: 01h27min

    Ladies and gentlemen, I have one piece of advice for you. No matter what Jigsaw tells you, there's no escape from a Jigsaw trap. None! Oh, there's pain in a Jigsaw trap, but you don't want pain...you want an escape. And Chris Rock's new movie Spiral: From the Book of Saw shows there's no escape from a Jigsaw trap.

    12/05/2021 Duração: 03h30min

    Anthony Mackie shields himself from the pressure of becoming the next Captain America by taking to the sky as The Falcon for Marvel’s second Disney+ miniseries, and it’s made Sebastian Stan angry enough to relapse back into The Winter Soldier.  Can these two set aside their differences long enough to save the world from a group of political extremists enhanced by super-soldier serum?  And do these six episodes go by in a Blip, or is the MCU better suited to the big screen?   Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart smash a lot more than flags when you Listen Now. {Avengers Series} {Marvel Series} {Comic Book Movie Series} {Captain America Series} --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support

  • Without Remorse

    05/05/2021 Duração: 01h25min

    Tom Clancy techno-thrillers typically feature desk-bound diplomats on the hunt for missing subs and rogue nukes, but the stakes are much more personal for Michael B Jordan (Creed) as he seeks vengeance against the hitman who murdered his family in Without Remorse.  Could the Navy Seal-turned-CIA operative start WWIII by breaking out of jail and heading to Russia in such a rage? And will Amazon Prime give this character's origin story the same hero's welcome that greeted old friend Jack Ryan? You'll be sad if you miss the latest Clancy-cast.  Listen Now! {Tom Clancy Series} --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nowplayingpodcast/support
