  1. Adam, Jeff, and Scott join me for a funny / nihilistic splatter-punk double feature. First up, a Dread Media revisit of the amazing Rutger Hauer film Hobo with a Shotgun. Then, a film I've always wanted to rewatch for the podcast but never got around to. Well, now I've gotten around to it: John Gulager's Feast. [ 53:24 || 25.9 MB ]


  2. Renowned Shakespearean actor, gay rights pioneer, and family friend of the hosts, the final actor for The Year of the Rings is none other than Sir Ian McKellen. The Brothers Wilson try to save time by reviewing both Gods and Monsters and Mr. Holmes, which are basically the same film, as well as capping of the Tolkien adaptations with their coverage of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Along the way there are discussions of various iterations of Sherlock Holmes, Jeff Goldblum impersonators, the strategic port of Dover, and rock frontmen reading bedtime stories.

  3. On the final week before Survivor Series, we see surprisingly little of champion Bret Hart while Shawn Michaels takes on Ken Shamrock. Ahmed Johnson begins (and ends) his quest for revenge against Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Vader stoops to desperate levels to find a last-second replacement for an injured member of Team USA.

  4. This week, get gothic with us as Desmond and Tom review the wildly feverish Ken Russell film Gothic. Then Tom pays tribute to the late character actor Michael J Pollard with a review of the under-appreciated 1980s gem American Gothic. Of course, there are some gothic tunes: "Fantasmagoria" and "The Devil is an Englishman" by Thomas Dolby, "American Gothic" by The Cult, and "Gothica" by The Dead Elvi. [ 59:23 || 28.7 MB ]


  5. Dave and Ian return for another two episodes of Crazyhead. In "Shave the Cat," Suzanne has returned from the dead and isn't the woman she used to be. Raquel, Amy, and Jake take her somewhere remote in search of a cure cure, and Raquel makes a new friend while searching for a phone signal. In "Penguin or Cow," Amy and Raquel confront Mercy while trying to find the kidnapped Suzanne. She is being held captive by Callum who intends to use her to take Amy out of the picture once and for all. They also discuss the correct posture to adopt if you ever see Ian in a pet shop, and discover that their previous edition has caught the attention of one of the cast's mothers.

  6. This week on Dread Media, Darryll and Desmond dig into the classic grimy slice of small-town crime, River's Edge. Besides the tight script, the incredible cast and acting, and killer soundtrack, it's just a really beautifully dark film. Then, Desmond goes solo on a Dread Media Top 5 of heavy metal dirtbag films. Songs include all but one tune from the feature review's soundtrack: "Die by the Sword" by Slayer, "River Below" by Billy Talent, "Lethal Tendencies" by Hallows Eve, and "Kyrie Eleison" by Fates Warning.

  7. This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Tom take in a double feature of disappointing dark superhero movies. Up first, Superman's origin story gets an uninspired spin in Brightburn. Then, things get worse when they review the Finnish vigilante film Rendel: Dark Vengeance. At least there are some great music: "One of You" by Silvertomb, "Superman" by Duff McKagan, "Out for Blood" by Sum 41, and "Vengeance (The Pact)" by Blue Oyster Cult. [ 1:01:44 || 29.9 MB ]


  8. This week on Dread Media, Desmond is joined by Adam, Brittney, Jeff, and Scott to review a Mick Garris production: the anthology film Nightmare Cinema. Then, Tom Deja stops by to take a look at Without Warning. Songs included: "Nightmare" by Brendon Small, "Friends Forever" by Zack Attack, "Without Warning" by Dokken, and "Someone Else's Nightmare" by Early Man. [ 52:05 || 25.2 MB ]


  9. Possibly the least likely subject for Hey, an Actor! in its history, our hosts nevertheless take one of the few female actors to grace The Year of the Rings, which is Evangeline Lilly. Ian finally gets to watch Real Steel, whereas hidden gem Little Evil graces Pandy's eyeballs for the first time, and The Hobbit is revisited with middle chapter The Desolation of Smaug. Along the way, we find out that where these films cross over with start-up wrestling promotion AEW, which staffer has a brief history with Evangeline Lilly, and how a fellow Leicestrian basically prolongs the Hobbit trilogy by being a b*stard. Also, we discover how often Tom Hemmings gets name-dropped on a typical episode of HAA, and The Brothers Wilson are once again haunted by their former Emailbot. [ 2:40:57 || 77.6 MB ]


  10. This week on Dread Media, we do a double feature of a rebooted Wes Craven series as Desmond and Duane review The Hills Have Eyes and The Hills Have Eyes 2 from 2006 and 2007 respectively. But first, a state of the podcast address! And of course there's music: "Earth AD" by The Misfits, and three songs titled "The Hills Have Eyes" by The Meteors, LoudLion, and The 69 Eyes. [ 1:01:22 || 29.7 MB ]


  11. Ian and Dave are back reviewing their most recent series to date: 2016 UK show Crazyhead. In "A Very Trippy Horse," Amy is a woman who works in a bowling alley and is dealing with her mental health. One day her world is turned upside down when she meets Raquel, who tells her that the things that she can see aren't hallucinations, demons are real, and they can both see them. In "A Pine Fresh Scent," Amy and Raquel have to deal with the fallout from an exorcism, and the demons send a problem solver to take out their one demon ally. They invent the "Jake Gauge" to track the likeability of one character, and Old Man Wilson shakes his fist at the kids. [ 1:37:19 || 71.3 MB ]


  12. This week on Dread Media, Jeff Goldblum smolders in an obscure film that is better left obscure in Desmond and Tom's review of Mister Frost. Rich the Monster Movie Kid props up the show with the only good movie being discussed as he talks the Vincent Price film From a Whisper to a Scream. Finally, Tom regrettably goes back to school to follow up last week's review with Death Bell 2: Bloody Camp. Sorry for the horrible audio on my end. Songs will make it better: "Die for the Devil" by Enforcer, "Sympathy for the Devil" by Motorhead, "From a Whisper to a Scream" by Elvis Costello and The Attractions, "School's Out" by Robben, and "Diagnosis" by The Wildhearts.
