103 - The Loved Ones/Valentine w/ Lynne & Kristin

February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine's Day, loves! In honor of this day of romance, we've invited our respective significant others to join us. Neither are horror fans so of course they jumped at the opportunity to watch some horror movies!

For our special edition of Real World Horror, we talk about zombie deer and elks and moose as well as monkeys with super herpes. In Horror Business, we give a Women in Horror Month shout out to Roxanne Benjamin, who is releasing her first feature film. We also talk about a Child's Play TV show, a new Purge, and what's next for Victor Crowley. Finally, Lynne and Kristin take the lead on a story about the sequel to Hocus Pocus

For our movie reviews, we discuss a couple of holiday favorites. Up first is the Denise Richards slasher Valentine from 2001. Our second film is a bit of a stretch to consider a Valentine's Day film but it's all about love so we're going to count it. It's director Sean Byrne's The Loved Ones

98 - Freddy vs. Jason/Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (Patreon picks)

December 10, 2017

You know what makes this country great? Freedom of choice. And today, we gave that freedom to two of our Patreon patrons.

We let our patrons choose the movie reviews for this episode. After collecting a pool of nominations, we randomly drew Freddy vs. Jason, chosen by Max Health, and Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead, chosen by Lance Dale. Considering some of our past Patreon picks episodes, it could have been a lot worse.

But first, Horror Business. We start things off, as we are wont to do, with Real World Horror about a ship made of bones and carrying a crew of p-p-p-pirate ghosts. Or something along those lines. We go on to discuss a new TV show from Blumhouse, a documentary about Jason Goes to Hell, and which character from The Walking Dead will be paralyzed by Fear. We then try to figure out what the hell Ridley Scott is doing to his Alien franchise, and talk about a new live-action Scooby-Doo movie. There's actually quite a bit of Scooby-Doo in this episode.

So give it a listen, enjoy, and if you want to pick our next episode, head over to patreon.com/graveplotpodcast. Cheers.
