Episode 38 - Crypticon Seattle 2015: a retrospective

Hey there friends. It's time once again for our annual Crypticon episode.

We went to the largest gathering of the macabre in the Pacific Northwest this weekend and we break down all the sights, sounds, and smells from the event.

We, unfortunately, didn't get around to doing interviews this time, but luckily it's because the event was so crowded. It's great to see more people supporting the genre and we'll take that over talking to some celebrities any day.

With that said, we tell you about some of the panels we saw, including the best movies of 2014, immortality as a plot device, Twin Peaks (featuring Sheryl Lee and Sherilynn Fenn), the Soska sisters, and Ken Foree. Crypticon is always a great event and if you get the chance to go next year, you definitely should. And come find us and say hi!

Episode 37 - Cub/Maggie/Dr. Ron Gibson

Good morning, friends!

It's time once again for a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast. This is a special edition in honor of Cystic Fibrosis awareness month.

In today's episode, we have good news and bad news in the world of television in Horror Business. We also have stories about new installments in the 28 Days Later, Wolf Creek, and Underworld franchises, remakes of The Craft and The Blob, and a new Kickstarter project from one of the most famous B-movie studios.

We also interview Dr. Ron Gibson, the director of the Cystic Fibrosis Center at Seattle Children's Hospital. He worked with Tony's late brother and he gives us a ton of information on the disease and some exciting news about the work towards a cure.

Finally, we review the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin-led zombie family drama Maggie (DVD/Blu Ray / VOD) as well as the Belgian camping horror Cub (DVD/Blu Ray).

So grab your headphones, stick them in your head, and indulge yourself in Grave Plotty goodness.

Hey yo.

We're back with another episode for yous guys. In this week's Horror Business, we tell you about Silent Hills, introduce you to the new Pennywise, and tell you what Clive Barker is doing with Creepy Pasta. We also discuss "In the Tall Grass," Tales From the Darkside, and an upcoming sequel that's probably completely unnecessary. We've also got news on not one, not two, but three remakes that are in the works. Oh boy.

This episode officially kicks off our Cystic Fibrosis awareness month coverage, and in honor of that we talk to CF awareness advocate, as well as well-known rapper and voice actor, mc chris. chris tells us all about his work to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as digging a bit into his career both in music and TV. Oh, and we talk about The Babadook.

But wait! There's more! We, of course, have two reviews for you and this time around it's the meta (sorry, Tony) remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, as well as the werewolf movie without any werewolves, Late Phases.

So sit down, strap in, shut up, and tune in. It's go time.

A very special new shirt from The Grave Plot podcast


As you have most likely heard by now, May is Cystic Fibrosis awareness month. As you have also likely heard by now, Cystic Fibrosis awareness is a cause very near and dear to our hearts, with Tony losing his brother to the disease earlier this year.

In honor of CF awareness month, we have released a brand new shirt in our store (link above). The front features a custom CF ribbon designed by our own SkeleTony. The back features a one-of-a-kind zombie drawing done by Tony's late brother.

With every shirt sold, $5 will be given to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. So please help us fight for a cure and raise awareness with one of these shirts, or go to cff.org to donate.

Thank you.

Episode 35 - Clown/Roadside

This episode has been an adventure.

As you know, this episode was originally supposed to air last week. However, due to some technical difficulties, we had to postpone it a week. We then re-recorded it, only to have a terrible clicking noise appear 20 minutes in and last throughout. It was even worse than the original, so we decided to try our best to edit the first take. It's not pretty, but we didn't want to leave you guys with nothing. So here it is.

In Horror Business, we discuss several rumors, including a potential Blair Witch 3 that may already be in production, Rob Zombie potentially penning an animated prequel to The Hills Have Eyes, and the theory of not one but two more Evil Dead movies being made. We delve into TV with discussions on two projects from Wes Craven, a long-gestating American Psycho series being discussed again, casting for Preacher, and one last hail Mary for Constantine.

We go on to review the newly released, yet made in 2012, movie from Eric England, Roadside. We also tackle the ridiculous, yet oddly compelling, Clown. So climb aboard and let's ride this train straight to Hell.

We apologize for the quality and believe us when we say this won't happen again.
