Sometimes dead is better. You have to wonder if a film adaptation of Pet Sematary was best left alone, or if it could benefit from a fresh take. Well, wonder no longer because we are here to talk about the brand new adaptation of Stephen King's famous novel. Speaking of the great Mr. King, we also discuss another one of his most famous adaptations, 1990's Misery.
Before all that, though, we must discuss some Horror Business. In Real World Horror, we talk about the strange things afoot at the Market Basket in Wilmington, Mass. Is the frozen food aisle some kind of gateway to the other side? Listen and find out.
We also talk about the probably-unnecessary remake of The Craft coming from Blumhouse, an update on who's playing the new Candyman in the new Candyman, and a new documentary about Sleepaway Camp. We've also got news on a fresh chapter in the Pan's Labyrinth story, plus details on what the future holds for the aforementioned Pet Sematary.
You can also find out where we'll be at this year's Crypticon Seattle, hear us talk about WrestleMania, and endure more of our unique brand of irreverence found only on The Grave Plot Podcast.
Don't look now but we're back once again with a brand new episode and we're talking about the movie everyone is talking about. Only we do it with that trademark Grave Plot Podcast stank.
Naturally we kick things off with Real World Horror, where we discuss the continuing search for extraterrestrials with none other than Blink-182 guitarist Tom Delonge. In Horror Business, we talk about the directorial debut of Dave Franco, which somehow turned into comparing him to a raccoon. We then move on to a long-gestating Stephen King adaptation that looks to finally see the big screen. Then there's a conversation on which movie Darren Lynn Bousman wants to reboot, a new Netflix series about kids taking on armies of monsters and zombies, plus a brand new video game from the creators of "Left 4 Dead."
Finally we get to our movie reviews, where we start things off discussing the independent werewolf movie Bonehill Road. Featuring genre icon Linnea Quigley and practical wolf effects, is it worth adding to the list of lycan films? Listen and find out. Also find out our thoughts on Jordan Peele's Us. It's the movie that's got everyone talking and we're no different. Hear us break it down in the way only we can.

Happy Valentine's Day, lovers! We hope you are all snuggled up with someone close to you because for the first time ever, we're not close to each other. That's because we're doing this episode remotely from opposite ends of the frozen tundra that currently is the Puget Sound region. But fear not, sweethearts, we've got a gift for you that's better than a box of chocolates. It's a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast!
Check out our holiday-themed movies as we review the films Lovers Lane and X-Ray (which doesn't sound like a Valentine's Day movie unless you go by its other name, Be My Valentine, or Else... Oh, and it's also called Hospital Massacre and Ward 13). These movies feature plenty of love, cherubs, romance, and blood and guts. Only part of that is true.
We also have some sweet, sweet Horror Business for you, including a Real World Horror story about a rich neighborhood turned on its head by a grisly discovery inside a suitcase. We go on to discuss the updated plans for the Universal monsters as well an update on the sequel to Halloween.

First up we talk about the closest thing we'll ever get to Adam and Joe from Holliston, Massachusetts' film Shinpads, the French soccer zombie film Goal of the Dead. When they score, you die. No, wait, wrong tagline. "Football is a team game... not survival!" What? That's terrible. Anyways, we also discuss the 1984 slasher film Fatal Games, about a deranged javelin thrower offing teenage Olympic hopefuls. I mean... with a premise like that how can it NOT be good, right?
We've also got a whole pregame of Horror Business. We kickoff with Real World Horror, where we talk about a Florida man attempting to kill his neighbors with kindness. We go on to discuss next year's Ghostbusters sequel as well as yet another installment in Nicolas Cage's tour of the horror genre. We also talk about a couple new TV series, namely a pilot based on The Lost Boys and a Resident Evil series coming to Netflix, plus updates on Shudder's Creepshow.

In Horror Business, we talk about the new season of Netflix's "Stranger Things," as well as sequel news for A Quiet Place and Zombieland. We also talk about new prequel novel to "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" and close things out by trying to figure out why they are rebooting Final Destination.
In our film reviews, we talk about the amusement park slasher Hell Fest, as well as the not-really-horror-but-kind-of-a-thriller-and-kind-of-supernatural-plus-it-has-Nicolas-Cage-so-screw-it film Between Worlds. All this as well as our usual brand of referential humor, dick jokes, and dumb stories await you.

All this hosted by everyone's favorite pun-making puppet, the Crypt Keeper.
