    Episode 17: The Amityville Horror

    Episode 17: The Amityville Horror

    *Edit (10/27/2020)* - Hey folks Kendra here! So I mentioned in this episode that I thought the Lutz family drew some inspiration from the red room in Haunting at Hill House, BUT that is not possible. The red room is in the Netflix adaptation, equally amazing in my opinion, but definitely not out for public viewing when the Lutz family lived at 112 Ocean Avenue. Sorry about the mix up!

    We are covering a classic paranormal tale that has haunted the minds of its readers since 1977. The Amityville Horror has left readers thinking “No way….but what if” for ages. Come along, as we share the Lutzes tale of their 28 day stay at 112 Ocean Avenue and try to separate fact from fiction. We aren’t going to lie, The Amityville Horror hits on a ton of classic paranormal tropes! So we are sure there will be something bone chilling for any horror lover in this story.

    PS. I (Kendra) don’t know what possessed me to continuously refer to the Lutz family as just “the Lutz” instead of “the Lutzes”, but I did and it is super annoying. Sorry guys!

    Be warned, there will be SPOILERS ahead in this episode. If you would like a spoiler free experience, check out The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson. Don't forget to come back and join our weird book club once you've finished the story!

    Episode 15: Frankenstein Movie vs Book

    Episode 15: Frankenstein Movie vs Book

    We are back with another Book vs Movie, or in this case miniseries, and we brought a friend! Mark has a degree in film and is way more qualified to discuss all aspects of filmography. This week we watched the Frankenstein miniseries from 2004 and we have A LOT to discuss. There are a bunch of fun adaptations to this classic story, but we heard that the miniseries is the most accurate to the book. We were not let down!

    Be warned, there will be SPOILERS ahead in this episode. If you would like a spoiler free experience, check out Mary Shelley’s novel Frankestein and the TV miniseries Frankenstein. Don't forget to come back and join our weird book club once you've finished the story!

    Episode 14: Frankenstein

    Episode 14: Frankenstein

    Spooky season is right around the corner and here at Palaver we wanted to kick it off right with a classic! The story of Frankenstein has been adapted in many different ways, but we are here for the original monster and mad creator himself. No bolts of electricity, creepy sidekicks, or grumbling monsters. We are talking about a dramatic alchemist who is constantly fainting and writing in his diary about his woes and strange experiments! We are talking about a monster (who is NOT called Frankenstein) who just needs some warm hugs, but ends up just strangling a bunch of people! Join us as Jess tells us the flowery and tragic tale of Frankenstein.

    Be warned, there will be SPOILERS ahead in this episode. If you would like a spoiler free experience, check out Mary Shelley’s novel Frankestein! Don't forget to come back and join our weird book club once you've finished the story!
