Episode 130 – Us/Bonehill Road

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.

Whether you’re tethered or not, grab your doppelganger and you can both enjoy a brand new episode of The Grave Plot Podcast!

The rest was raised after the fact and we used it for promotion and to fulfill the IndieGoGo perks and such. Plus, IndieGoGo took a HUGE chunk of our funds. Just wanted to take a second to address a couple of things. First, there is a Castle Rock KANSAS. It was an homage to Stephen King of course and Cabot’s Cove is an homage to H.P. Lovecraft. The Suzie name was an homage to my friend Kevin Tenney’s brilliant Night of the Demons. The werewolves do… Read more »

Hey Todd. Thanks for taking the time for such a thorough reply (and for having an overall positive attitude about the review)! I definitely understand not wanting to make the same cookie-cutter werewolf movie that we’ve all seen a hundred times already. I also totally understand trying to find a balance that will please people without ruining your vision. Like you said, you can’t please everyone. I unfortunately didn’t know there was a post-credits scene. :\ We do tend to be overly critical – and hyperbolic – of movies sometimes. We know we aren’t professional critics but feel like we… Read more »
