Octoberama, Vol. 5: 2014 Halloween Special

Hello everyone and Happy Halloween! Welcome to the second annual Grave Plot Podcast Halloween Special!

Taylor of Terror takes over lead hosting duties this time around, with SkeleTony off gallivanting around on the east coast with his new wife. In Tony's place, however, is the newly dubbed "Carlos Muertos," aka Carlos Rodela from the Video Game Break podcast.

Taylor and Carlos start things off with a bit of Halloween Horror Business, including a real-life story ripped right off the screen, with the story of Barrett Township in Pennsylvania cancelling Halloween because of a killer on the loose. The boys also discuss fictional killers such as Michael Myers, whose new film (tentatively titled) Halloween 3 has received a new script. Rob Zombie is not involved, will it be better or worse? We'll see. Speaking of sequels, the 20-year-old Ice Cream Man is looking to continue its story, and they need your help. We also continue the new tradition known as "They're Remaking That? Really?" with a discussion on what Eli Roth movie is being retold.

Speaking of Eli Roth, we also discuss the new TV show that Roth is producing, as well as directing the pilot for, "South of Hell." While we're on the subject of TV, we discuss "The Walking Dead" and "American Horror Story" and how those two worlds may be colliding. We close out Horror Business with a couple zombie stories, including a new movie from George Romero (but not the one you think), as well as more casting updates for Dead Rising: Watchtower.

For our reviews, we went a little different this time. Instead of doing movies, we decided to review haunted attractions. Carlos tells us about the scariest, as well as the funniest, haunts he's ever been to, and Taylor regales stories from his time working at the King County Scaregrounds. Tony even calls in with some haunt reviews from the east coast. We close out with prerecorded reviews from Tony and Taylor, reviewing the Haunted Nightmare at the Nile, as well as the Georgetown Morgue.

So light your jack-o-lantern, cuddle up under your blanket fort and prepare for the 2014 Grave Plot Podcast Halloween Special!

Octoberama, Vol. 4: Week of the Monster

We wrap up our weekly theme shows with the fourth week of Octoberama, the week of the monster.

We cut out the Horror Business again and go straight to the reviews. This episode features a couple of films with inhuman beasts, namely Feast and the 1994 adaptation of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.

This one is a personal favorite of ours so make sure you do yourself a favor and have a listen.

Don't forget, next week is our Halloween special and you're not going to want to miss that! So enjoy week of the monster and we will see you in a week!

Octoberama, Vol. 3: Week of the Werewolf

Welcome once again to Octoberama! For week three of this big event, we present you with the week of the werewolf.

As such, we present you with two werewolf movies, namely Skinwalkers and Dog Soldiers. While vastly different, the two movies are also very similar in that they both feature lycanthropic monsters. We give our take on both and give them a rating.

Before we can get to that, however, we have to take care of Horror Business. We start off with some real world horror, including a true-to-life Hannibal Lectar as well as the discovery of Draula's dungeon. We then move on to the world of fiction, but stick with Dracula as we discuss how Dracula Untold is going to be the springboard for a whole new Universal Monsters world. We close out the vampire section with a discussion about a remake of I Am Legend.

We then move to discuss zombies, including The Walking Dead, the new Uwe Boll picture Anger of the Dead, the sequel to Zombieland, and updates on the movie adaptation of Dead Rising. We then discuss the future for the Soska twins, as well as the iOS game The Drowning. We move on to the return of the Twin Peaks, as well as updates on Amityville: The Awakening, The Purge becoming a trilogy, The Green Inferno, and Cannibal Holocaust. We close out with a ton of updates about the new Ghostbusters movie.

So enjoy the new episode, and pray there's not a full moon. Aoooooooo!

Octoberama, Vol. 2: Week of the Zombie

Welcome back to Octoberama! It's week two, the week of the zombie.

This is one of our minisodes, so we skipped Horror Business this week and went straight for the reviews. Our reviews this time around are 2010's African undead epic The Dead as well as the Tom Savini-directed remake of Night of the Living Dead from 1990.

Today also marks the one year anniversary of The Grave Plot Podcast. It's hard to believe we started this crazy dance 365 days ago but here we are. In honor of the event, we have opened a new online store, where you can purchase Grave Plot Podcast shirts and buttons. There is a link at the top of the page to go buy your merch and support our show.

So enjoy this week of the undead and stay tuned next week for week of the werewolf!
