Film News (UK): HorrorShow.TV recruits Scott Weinberg and adds 70 titles to its growing portfolio.

Award-nominated VOD destination TheHorrorShow.TV has cranked up its editorial content by hiring renowned horror critic Scott Weinberg to the new TheHorrorShow.TV blog where his reviews of new and upcoming horror films will be accompanied by news, previews and updates on a wide variety of new and retro horror films, including those available to stream and/or download via TheHorrorShow.TV

TheHorrorShow.TV's David Hughes said today: "There are so many great horror films in the works right now and it takes someone as plugged in as Scott to sort the gold from the garbage. Scott will join us doing what he does best: writing knowledgeable, informed and well-written reviews of all the latest horror films, including many of the titles showing at TheHorrorShow.TV"

The burgeoning company, created in 2013, is also adding over seventy more titles, bringing its total to 160. These include:
