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.
So grab some chocolates, pour a glass of champagne, and cuddle up with a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast.
Enjoy your VD.

We're back, and better than ever. It's a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast here to kick the door down.
Today in Real World Horror, we talk about a Michigan couple making a business out of selling other people's business. Namely their heads. In Horror Business, we tell you which way-past-its-expiration-date horror franchise just won't seem to stay dead and a new franchise from some familiar names. We also discuss a new Romero taking on the throne, some vampires coming to the small screen, and Mike Flanagan's next Stephen King adaptation.
Our movie reviews are a family affair, as we discuss Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair going crazy in Mom and Dad. For our second movie, we discuss some trouble makers who could have used some more mom and dad time in Bad Apples.
So pop us in your ears and let's take a trip together.

Who would have thought we'd ever make it this far? After almost five years, we finally hit the coveted triple digit mark. Welcome to Episode 100 of The Grave Plot Podcast!
We do 100 with two movies deserving of such an honor, horror classics The Shining and The Exorcist. Listen as Tony tries (and fails) not to compare the movies and books and we generally just gush over these two films. You've seen them before, but you've never seen them through the Smirnoff Ice fueled eyes of the Grave Plot boys.
Oh yeah, did I mention Smirnoff Ice was involved?
We also talk Horror Business, including an update on the Slender Man attacks in Real World Horror. We go on to discuss the newest Hellraiser movie, a possible remake of The Creature From the Black Lagoon, an update on the 2018 Halloween film, and the latest news involving the Alien franchise. We close things out talking about which other Stephen King adaptations Gerald's Game director Mike Flanagan might want to tackle next.
In case that's not enough, we also spoke to the co-writer and director of 2017 Grave Plot Award nominee Better Watch Out, Chris Peckover. We discussed film making in Australia, holiday horrors, and Patrick Warburton's big box of gay ornaments.
So check out our big, awesome episode 100 and let's get started on the next hundred.

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.

Hey kids! It's time to get spooky (or is it spoopy?) because it's time for the first ever Week of the Ghost!
In this third installment of Octoberama, we discuss a couple very different pieces of supernatural cinema. Up first is the 2007 film that had a whole generation scratching their chins wondering if what they just saw was real before it spawned a series of terrible sequels. Did you guess Paranormal Activity? You win! Your prize? A second review, this time of a film featuring Antonio Scarpacci, Shaggy Doo, and the hot foreign girl from American Pie fending off a dozen-or-so specters in a giant glass house. It's the remake of 13 Ghosts, which is for some reason called Thir13en Ghosts.
Don't worry, you don't need any spectrometers or EMF readers to find these phantoms, just listen to a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast!
