This week on the Horror Junkies Podcast, the guys get together to discuss the weirdness that surrounds The Lost Colony of Roanoke. So make sure to strap yourself in and put that tin foil hat on because we go from plausible theories to conspiracy theories real quick.
In the first segment of the show as usual Patrick tells us whats happening in the Horror world with the news. Up first is a awesome video titled “Babashook” which is a music video that gives the Babadook a Drag makeover. Then of course the most anticipated season of Rick and Morty will be coming out July 30th and we are so stoked to see what the creators have in store for us. Another bit of news is that Leatherface will be an exclusive DirecTV release on September 21, 2017, with a limited theatrical run and full VOD release potentially on October 20, 2017.
The main discussion of the show is about The Roanoke Colony, founded by Sir John White in August of 1587. 115 English settlers arrived on the Island began colonizing the permanent English Settlement, ordered by Queen Elizabeth I. Later in that year, Sir White left Roanoke heading back to England, to replenish supplies, but upon returning there was a mighty naval battle between Spain and England and the Queen ordered all available ship to help fight. It wasn’t until 1590 that Sir White finally returned to Roanoke, but upon returning, he saw no one. Insert spooky ghost noise here.
There are many plausible theories as to what happened to those settlers who stayed behind, but of course we have to find the most ridiculous theories and talk about them. Some say the settlers resorted to Cannibalism, others say Aliens came and abducted them, in what would be the largest abduction in our history. But many simply do not have the answers and we will probably know what happened to those people.
Later in the show, we have our Versus segment and this week it was the Patrick, the reigning champ against new comer Angel. Patrick was the Antichrist who gets stronger by drinking blood, and Angel had Carrie who multiplies when wet. We decided that the Antichrist wins this match, making Patrick 2-0.
Remember to write us and tell us what you think of the show and tell us what you want us to talk about . As always STAY WEIRD!!
