Grave Plot Film Festival 2022

Grave Plot Film Festival Episode of Coast 2 Coast Horror w/Crystal & Shasha

“The Grave Plot Film Fest is a collection of short horror films, all spanning 15 minutes or less, from all around the world. The event was started in 2019 by the hosts of The Grave Plot Podcast to showcase some of the weirdest, wildest, and wackiest horror content out there.

They wanted to shine a light on the independent filmmakers who are working their butts off to tell frightening, thought provoking, or just bizarre stories. The hope is to help create the next generation of horror, promoting those with a genuine love for the genre and a keen eye for film.” – The Grave Plot Film Festival 2022
