Happy fourth of July to all you red, white, and blue blooded Americans! We celebrate our country's independence with Carlos Rodela, aka Carlos Muertos, and the films I Know What You Did Last Summer and 2001 Maniacs. Oh, and Zima. Lots of Zima.
On top of that, we also have some fireworks known as Horror Business. We kick things off with Real World Horror, where we discuss a haunted police station in India. We move on to debate the merits of a remake of Roald Dahl's The Witches, as well as a Nightbreed TV show and the return of Joe Bob Briggs to our television sets. We also have a conversation on the upcoming collaboration from the makers of It Follows and Childish Gambino's topical "This is America" music video.
So hurry up and press play before you blow all your fingers off and enjoy a star spangled new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast!

Welcome back, Plotter.
No, that's terrible. Let's start again.
Hello again and welcome to a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast. Today we're discussing one of the most talked about movies of the year so let's get down to business.
Speaking of business, we must start with Horror Business. We kick things off with a Real World Horror story about AI that will most likely lead to the end of the human race as we know it. Thanks, science. We also talk about a new movie inspired by a viral ghost story that captivated Twitter and a TV series based on, shocker, a Stephen King novel. We go on to discuss an upcoming remake of Arachnophobia, a new movie from the director of Jason Goes to Hell, and a new adaptation of the Addams Family.
Okay, finally time to get to our movie reviews. We know what you all want to hear about. That's right, first up we discuss the Johnny Galecki film The Cleanse! It's a touching tale of a depressed man and the tiny, tadpole-like monster that escapes his body up while on retreat. Now, finally, we get to talking about Hereditary. It's all the buzz right now, with some calling it the scariest movie since The Exorcist. Does it live up to the hype, or is it a massive letdown? You know how to find out and that's listen to this episode of The Grave Plot Podcast!

We have such sights to show you in our brand new episode. We take a trip down south, WAY down south, as we review a couple of Hellraiser films. However, we review the two that do NOT have Doug Bradley as Pinhead. Hear our reviews of the ninth and tenth installments in the franchise, Hellraiser: Revelations and Hellraiser: Judgment.
First things first, though. Let's talk Horror Business. In Real World Horror, we tell the tale of a woman who just wants to get her heads. We then discuss the most recent additions to Stranger Things 3, plus updates on AMC's NOS4A2 series and John Krasinski's follow up to A Quiet Place. We wrap things up by talking about a new version of a Full Moon classic and tell you what Neil Blomkamp is up to.

Shall we begin?

We kick off the show by talking about Luchagore Productions' new series La Quinceañera, followed by some Real World Horror about a Florida woman who removed her mother's eyes. In Horror Business, we discuss Rob Zombie's Devil's Rejects sequel as well as the return of the Leprechaun.

For our movies, we head to the big top to review the film Circus of the Dead, about a sick and twisted group of clowns, led by Bill Oberst, Jr. We then move on to talk about the latest Dread Central Presents feature, Terrifier, about a clown who only cares about his own entertainment... and he's entertained by murder.

We also discuss the theory that A Quiet Place is a secret Cloverfield movie, The Dark Tower TV series, and the future of Evil Dead. We also go on a tangent about the future of The Walking Dead and close out with news of a remake of Fear.
