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!

Octoberama, Vol 1: Week of the Vampire

Welcome to the first ever Octoberama, presented by the Grave Plot Podcast. What is Octoberama, you may be asking? It's a new episode every week in October. With special minisodes interspersed between full episodes, each week having a special theme. Today's theme is vampires.

In celebration of the fanged creatures, we review Stake Land and the original Fright Night from 1985. We discuss vampire lore and how it has changed throughout the years. We even dive a little bit into the Fright Night remake.

Before we get to that, though, we must attend to Horror Business. We start out with a couple of stories about remakes, including the Americanization of the South Korean revenge flick I Saw The Devil as well as the remake of the 90s teen scream slasher flick I Know What You Did Last Summer. In the "TV is the new remake" portion of our show, we discuss the possibility of Saw coming to the small screen.

We then go on to discuss the new name for Paranormal Activity 5, which is The Ghost Dimension, for some reason. We go into the plot of the movie as well as the new due date, which is the old due date for Scouts vs. Zombies, which took it from Friday the 13th. It's a whole game of musical release dates. Speaking of release dates, we tell you about a pair of movies that have been completely pulled from release.

We then discuss the upcoming sequel to the ORIGINAL I Spit On Your Grave from 1978. We then give you some more updates on both the next Friday the 13th movie, as well as the television show of the same name. Speaking of television, the Syfy network has a new movie coming out in the same vein as Sharknado. Finally, we introduce you to the newest members of GWAR.

So enjoy the week of the vampire and the kickoff to Octoberama, the biggest month in Grave Plot Podcast history!
