Episode 27 - Big Red vs Dead

Hello again and welcome back to another episode of The Grave Plot podcast!

We kick things off today with a new Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde series that will feature action, adventure, and superheroes. I wish that was a joke. We go on to discuss just what the new Friday the 13th movie is (although we're still not sure), as well as the Dark Tower movie/TV show combo.

From there, we discuss how and why a found footage movie would be 3D, why The Crow reboot is constantly fighting for its life, and the latest addition to the Universal monsters team. We also talk about the new horror movie coming from Spike Lee - yes, that Spike Lee - plus the sequel to a personal favorite of ours, Contracted.

We, once again, bring hell down upon AMC and The Walking Dead for their spoiling of the mid-season finale, as well as casting news on that show's spin-off series. To close out Horror Business, we discuss some casting news, namely The Last of Us and the Lifetime series based on The Omen.

Our two movie reviews feature a pair of sequels. We kick things off with the WWE Films production of See No Evil 2, directed by the Soska twins and starring "The Big Red Monster," Kane. Jacob Goodnight is back and he's once again picking off all the pretty people. Our second review features some hardcore zombie-on-zombie action as the undead third reich returns in Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead.

So open your ears and let us in to your brains!

Episode 26 - GGMF (2014 Thanksgiving Special)

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Welcome to the 2014 Grave Plot Podcast Thanksgiving special.

Following last year's mini special review of ThanksKilling, we review the sequel, ThanksKilling 3. Turkie is back on a new rampage with new puppets, powdered wigs, and the Pluck Master 3000. We also reviewed Home Sweet Home, a 1981 slasher film about Body By Jake escaping from a mental institution and runs roughshod through a rag-tag group's Thanksgiving celebration.

For our turkey day edition of Horror Business, we tackle the latest on the TV adaptation of Evil Dead. Speaking of Evil Dead, the team behind the remake has a new project called A Man in the Dark. In the latest edition of "They're Remaking That? Really?" we discuss The Wolfman being remade yet again, only four years after the last time. This leads into a conversation about the entire Universal monster reboot scenario and why it's doomed to fail.

We then move on to a trio of sequels, including Hocus Pocus 2, The Conjuring 2, and Insidious: Chapter 3. We also discuss the world of video games, namely a movie that dives into the Splatterhouse universe (bit.ly/Splatfilm), as well as the new slasher PC game Last Year (kickstarter.com/projects/lastyear/last-year-5-vs-1-multiplayer-survival-horror). We go on to discuss Eric England's Get The Girl, USA's "Evil Men," and Stephen King's The Talisman. We even make a call to our resident Stephen King expert, SkeleJohn. Speaking of Stephen King, we have an update on The Stand adaptation.

We also have updates on Crooked Lake, From Hell, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and Krampus. We also tell you about a new Christmas-themed haunted house (chamberofhorrorsny.com/very-scary-xmas.html) as well as the new horror game show from Tommy - er, Jason - Blum.

We had some technical difficulties towards the end of the episode, we hope that doesn't take away from your enjoyment. So get stuffed from the Grave Plot Podcast.

Drunken Cinema, Vol. 5: Club Dread

We've made a huge mistake.

For the first (and last) time ever, we decided to do a Drunken Cinema double-header. Here's how I remember it going down; we had just finished our Evil Dead 2 Drunken Cinema. As I was walking to the bathroom, Tony said "shit, it's only 10:30." I responded with "Fuck it, let's do another one!" Tony agreed, and... that's about it.

While I'm sure it was fun at the time, the next day was hell on Earth.

The latest installment of Drunken Cinema is the Broken Lizard horror-comedy Club Dread. The latest cocktail of choice is Coconut Pete's Margarita. Can you guess the secret ingredient?
2 ounces coconut puree, thawed
2 ounces anejo tequila
1 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce triple sec
Dash of simple syrup
Crushed ice
Lime slice, for garnish
Combine the coconut puree, tequila, lime juice, triple sec and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake for 10 seconds. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lime slice.
So listen along and enjoy, because we suffered for this. Cheers!

Episode 25 - Horny Devils

October is over and it's time to get back to our regularly scheduled program.

Today's episode features a pair of reviews with demonic undertones. First, there is the hellish musical The Devil's Carnival, from Darren Bousman, the man behind Saw II and Repo! The Genetic Opera. This is followed by the movie Horns, about a man who awakes to find mysterious horns growing out of his head and he must discover the truth in order to get rid of them.

Of course, before all that, we must take care of Horror Business. In our real-world horror stories, we discuss a North Carolina satanist who killed his neighbors in a sadistic ritual. It sounds like a movie, but it's all too true. So, too, is the story out of India of a man who tortured his daughter's rapist. Hot tongs, y'all... hot tongs.

In the world of fiction, we continue with our "They're Remaking That? Really?" segment with Nosferatu (Kickstarter campaign). Speaking of remakes, we also discuss The Crow and Hellraiser. We also discuss the new directors for the spin off of The Walking Dead, Leatherface, and Outcast, which also found its lead actor. Speaking of TV shows, we discuss what main character could be missing from the Scream television series, and what actors will be joining American Horror Story.

We go on to discuss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity featuring Jason Voorhees, Speaking of slashers, we tell you about the new slasher video game "Summer Camp." We close with release dates for The Mummy, Zombeavers, Lazarus, and Digging Up the Marrow. So listen up and enjoy!
