  1. Dave and Ian begin series two of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Whatever Possessed You," Jeff still has no memory of Marty being a ghost as he and Jeanie are called in to investigate a series of strange deaths in a hotel. Wyvern says that the time has come for Marty to reunite with Jeff, and together they face the spirits looking to escape the hotel. In "Revenge of the Bog People" an ex-partner of Jeff comes back into his life asking him to reopen the investigation into her missing father, and Marty is tasked with taming a wayward ghost called Nesbit. And in "O Happy Isle," Jeff and Jeanie investigate the death of a young man on a remote Scottish island and stumble across a conspiracy to control the planet's population. They also discuss the improvements in series two and welcome a guest appearance of one of Ian's favorite TABHAL actors. [ 2:24:41 || 70.0 MB ]

    Episode 577

    School is back in session, but we're going abroad here at Dread Media. First up, Desmond and Duane review the anthology film of brutality and depravity from a country known for its brutal and depraved cinema: German Angst. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives a review of the haunting, beautiful, and erotic Belgian vampire film, The Daughters of Darkness. We've got an assortment of international tunes, too: "The Mandrake's Cry" by Danzig from the USA, "Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen" by Rammstein from Germany, "Vampyre Erotica" by Inkubus Sukkubus from Britain, and "Foreign Armies East" by Sleep of Monsters from Finland.

    Episode 155

    The guys are back to look at three episodes. Before that, though, they play catch-up with Doctor Who news, including trailers, The Doctor's new sonic, and the Twitch live-stream. Then it's all about a three-part story in which The Doctor finds himself trapped in virtual reality ("Extremis"), preventing World War III ("The Pyramid at the End of the World"), then saving the planet from alien overlords ("The Lie of the Land").

  4. Summer is over, Ian has regained his editing duties, and Pandy is going back to work. What can possibly cheer up The Brothers Wilson and, by extension, the listeners of Hey, an Actor? Why, the delectable Salma Hayek, of course! Starting with her early crossover hit into American film with her female lead in Robert "RobRod" Rodriguez's sophomore trilogy entry Desperado. This episode also charts her Academy Award-nominated role as the titular star of Frida, and her latter career dramatic turn as the equally titular Beatriz at Dinner. Listen closely to find out in which film Hayek plays a Fembot, and which of our featured films works best as a Captain Planet prequel. Pandy also returns to his jingle-making excesses, the feedback section is almost entirely forgotten, and the hosts discuss the sexual eroticism of Alfred Molina. Happy autumn, everybody!

    Episode 576

    This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Darryll get together for some drinks and some shuriken-throwing as they present a double feature of Sho Kosugi ninja films: Enter the Ninja and Revenge of the Ninja. There are wicked stunts, explosions, throwing stars embedded in foreheads, cocaine, bad acting, wet T-shirts, steely gazes, and men so virile they'll make you go through puberty twice! All that, plus songs: "Against the Ninja" by Dragon Sound, "Enter the Ninja" by Die Antwoord, "Revenge" by Black Flag, and "Shadow Warrior" by Blue Oyster Cult. [ 1:15:31 || 36.5 MB ]
  6. Since its debut in 1966, we've been graced with seven Star Trek television shows, 13 movies spanning two continuities, countless novels and short stories, a smattering of video games, and comic books across all major publishers. This has allowed Star Trek to cross into a multitude of genres and tackle different themes. From heists to family dramas, space action to coping with PTSD, ghost stories to coming-of-age tales. The vast Star Trek Universe provides an open-ended playground for any and all types of stories. [ read more ]
  7. What better way to celebrate the twin accomplishments of Ian's impending house ownership, and Burt Reynolds' entire film career than having a Pandy editing special? The Brother's Wilson investigate three films around the pinnacle of his popularity: the sexy rootin, tootin musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas; the banjo and sodomy classic Deliverance; and the mothertruckin' Smokey and the Bandit. Listen in to hear some of Reynolds' amazing pithy one-liners, discover Pandy's deep history with one of the films, find out how Ian would use Emmett Brown to improve a film, and hear The Brothers saying they don't want to speak ill of the dead despite speaking ill of the dead.

  8. To date we've examined how I would bring Star Trek back to television screens and cinemas. However, through CBS All Access, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube Premium, and other streaming services, the creative minds behind the Star Trek franchise have many more outlets to bring its fans new series, characters, and situations in which to explore the endless universe of Star Trek. Beyond the above-mentioned services, one must consider what type of content to place on these digital platforms. Though Discovery is doing well on CBS All Access, I'm not sure an ongoing, multi-season program is the right fit for these avenues. Rather, I would prefer to see new Star Trek shows in the mold of the original intent of Discovery: anthology series. [ read more ]

    Episode 575

    This week on Dread Media, we get cult. First, two brothers return to the death cult they grew up in to seek answers in Darryll and Desmond's review of The Endless. Then, Desmond goes solo on reviews of the following books, tackling toxic fandom of cult heroes: I Am Providence by Nick Mamatas and Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk. Of course, we have one of the most eclectic line-ups of songs for this weird episode: "Cult" by Endless, "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Common People" by William Shatner, and "The Cult of 2112" by Perturbation.

  10. Though Star Trek has its roots in television, it is the rare franchise that has successfully crossed into movie theaters. Moreover, it did so using the same actors and continuity. Without a reboot or a single recasting, in 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture was released in cinemas. The only real changes were updated uniforms and a redesign of the iconic Enterprise. By transitioning from small to big screen, the characters, actors, filmmakers, and franchise were allowed to grow. It's great having 45 minutes to tell a story, but give creatives 90 minutes, two hours, or more of screen time and suddenly the characters have been infused with new life. They've grown in ways episodic television rarely allows. [ read more ]

The case study this week is Desmond and Tom's review of Dolph Lundgren as a demon-hunter in Don't Kill It. Then Desmond gives his Top 5 old guys killing it in modern genre films. Don't miss it. The music this week: "By Demons Be Driven" by Pantera, "Don't Kill the Vibe" by Ecstatic Vision, "Old Fangs" by Black Mountain, and "Sleep and Death" by Huntress. RIP Jill Janus.
