Show Notes

Once upon a time we thought Jack of All Graves was gonna be a horror movie podcast. It is not. But sometimes we just have to go all in on talking about the thing that brought us together. After a lil’ chat about being buried alive, we deep dive into the best and worst things about TV and movies, with much Sam Raimi celebration. Lots of timestamps here to tailor your experience.

Highlights:
