Today, on a very special episode of the Grave Plot Podcast…
Okay, so it’s not really that special, unless you count the fact that it’s our twentieth episode! Plus, we announce the winner of the first ever Remake Madness tournament! So I guess it is pretty damn special!
Our two movie reviews this episode are about family, as demented as they may sometimes be. Up first we have Torment, about a family who attacks another family after the first family moves into the other family’s home. Got that? The second selection features the long-awaited Michael vs. Jason matchup. Except, it’s not Michael vs. Jason. While Tyler Mane does play a character named Michael, it’s not the one from Haddonfield. And Derek Mears plays William, not Jason. Regardless, those two take the screen together for the first time in the film Compound Fracture.
Before we can get to that, though, we’ve got some Horror Business to take care of. We start off by catching you up on the Slender Man stabbings. We make the transition into the world of fiction gradually, introducing Through the Wormhole as it examines whether or not a zombie apocalypse could realistically happen. Speaking of zombies, we tell you the latest details about the new movie from Rob Zombie, 31. We then discuss the new trend in horror cinema, the re-remake, with The Omen being the latest victim. In the world of original remakes (is that a thing?), Japanese thriller Audition is getting adapted for American audiences. So that should be interesting. Or not.
Up next we dive into the world of home video, discussing the straight-to-video release of See No Evil 2 as well as the new anthology box set of The Exorcist series and the special edition release of Night Breed. We also discuss the new season of the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove. We finish it off by breaking down the trailer for Dracula Untold and tell you when you can expect to see Insidious: Chapter 3 hit theaters.
On top of all that, we also had the privilege of speaking to writer/director/actress Jessica Cameron. Jessica tells us how she got started in the business, how she came to start directing, the story behind Truth or Dare, updates on her new movie Save Yourself, and tales of hot tub trespassing. It was a very fun interview so we hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording. So enjoy our twentieth episode with the ones you love. Stay thirsty, my friends.
