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!

Octoberama rolls on with week two, week of the zombie! In this, our fourth anniversary episode, we discuss the movies that first got us interested in zombie films. For Taylor, that movie is George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, and for Tony, it's Lucio Fulci's Zombie.
First, however, we've got to take care of some Horror Business. In Real World Horror, we discuss a mortician who has been collecting a specific body part from his customers for years. We've also got news on a new feature film based on Salem's Lot, a TV show based on Scanners, and a remake of Hocus Pocus. If that's not enough, there's also a comic based on Pumpkinhead, plus find out who Robert Englund wants to take over the mantle of Freddy Krueger.

Look! Up in the sky! Is it a solar eclipse? No, it's a Full Moon! Today we're talking about two movies from Full Moon Features. First up we've got arguably the company's most famous film, Puppet Master. Next up we skip right past Subspecies to Bloodstone: Subspecies II. Have a listen as we determine if these movies rise or fall. That was an attempt at a moon pun and it failed. Sorry.
We also discuss the loss of another horror legend, an all-clown screening of It, and the future of Stranger Things. And that's before we even get started on Horror Business! In Real World Horror, we wonder what the recent eclipse means for our eternal souls. We go on to talk about Adam Green's secret new film as well as a the conclusion of a couple trilogies, namely Dead Snow and Gremlins. We close things out with conversations about The Exorcist TV show and the latest from the Soska sisters.
So serve yourself a big ol' helping of The Grave Plot Podcast and dig in.
