The Filmmaking Sucks Podcast - Episode 1

Hey everyone, we here at Mass Grave have started a new podcast entitled Filmmaking Sucks, where we will be discussing the pitfalls of independent film production!

On this post-Thanksgiving episode, we have decided to discuss something we all love and hold near and dear to our hearts: food! And not just any food, but human flesh! From the Pilgrims at Jamestown, to Jeffrey Dahmer and the Infamous, Richard Trenton Chase, we discuss multiple instances of cannibalism.

Archive - Mario Likes Movies: Cannibal Films

In the meantime, check out Marios newest endeavors covering a pelthora of videosgames and nerd culture in general, as well as his...



Happy Turkey Day everyone! While most people are sitting around a table eating (and we hope enjoying) dinner, we have decided to bring you a special bonus episode of Channel X, where we discuss one of the oldest supernatural legends of North America, the Native American Skinwalker. Unfortunately, Manny spent three days dealing with a tooth infection, so the episode is a little late, but fret not! The discussion is just as compelling! The history of this creature goes back centuries, but is...


Are We Moving To Canada?

In a discussion that's sure to be extremely polarizing, Manny, Lindsay and Erik sit down to discuss the 2016 election results.

Witch Hunting

This week on the show, we discuss the horrible history of Witch Hunting in America and beyond! From ole England and colonial Salem, to modern day Africa, witches have been persecuted everywhere.

The History of Creepy Clown Sightings

Happy Halloween to you all! Well, it's not Halloween quite yet...but to us, October IS Halloween! So, this week on the show, Manny, Lynn and Erik discuss the (not-so) recent rash of creepy clown sightings. As it turns out, this is not the first time incidents like this have occurred.

Murderous Animals

This week, we took a break from the usual doom and gloom of our show (sorta) and discussed some of the craziest animal attacks in history!

After the break, we begin by discussing the numerous Nile Crocodiles which have recently been found in Florida. We then discuss numerous accounts of the various types of...

The Political Commentary Of Batman Vs Superman

This may be a strange topic for us to discuss, a little off of what you normally get from Channel X, but it's something we've been discussing privately for a few months now, and we wanted to do it publicly. Imagine that Batman is the Democratic Party and Superman is the Republican Party. That's all I'll say as a precursor.. Listen in! Music from Without You, I'm Hunting Them is available at: wekeepoddhours.bandcamp.com
