On this edition of The Gralien Report, the week has finally arrived… and we have one question in mind: what’s YOUR favorite classic horror movie? We decided to craft an extra special treat for our listeners this year, and by employing a little alchemical “audio gold,” we celebrate the season by transforming the entire broadcast into a retro trip back to the drive-in theaters of decades past.
We also take a look at the latest Halloween-themed news of the unusual: in California, police thought that a severed human head brought to their station had to have been a prank… it wasn’t. Also, recent mischief at an Antarctic base has us all thinking about Kurt Russell’s famous role in John Carpenter’s The Thing. Finally, we all remember the famous Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but what if the “real” invasion were already occurring… in our homes, gardens, and neighborhoods?
Then in hour two, Lauran provides us with an eerie selection of unusual disappearances from the famous “Bennington Triangle,” before we turn our attention to stories submitted by our listeners. We had a number of excellent Halloween submissions, and getting to share in the excitement of hearing “real life” odd encounters from our listenership makes the perfect ending to an already delightful All Hallow’s Eve 2018.
