  3. Up the horns because this week Dread Media's getting heavy! First up, Desmond and Duane review the Finnish heavy metal adventure comedy Heavy Trip. Then Desmond goes solo on a review of We Summon the Darkness, and a Dread Media Top 5 of Heavy Metal Horror. This week's music is a nice selection of Yacht Rock.

  4. On the final week before the D(e)-Generation X pay-per-view, we scramble to fill out the card and actually get some build. The semifinals for the Light Heavyweight Championship tournament, kind of. Ken Shamrock continues his rivalry with Shawn Michaels, kind of. And Stone Cold Steve Austin drives The Rock absolutely berserk. That one is actually really awesome, and you should hear what Kellen has to say and what Tom had to miss out on.

  5. This week on Dread Media, the monster movies get a little silly. First, Desmond and Tom find out how all these werewolves got on this train in Howl. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes on Hogzilla. Yes. You read that right. Finally, rounding out the episode is a Dread Media Top 5 of under-appreciated and under-seen creature features. Songs included: "Howl" by Barren Earth, "Howlin' for You" by The Black Keys, "Three Little Pigs" by Green Jelly, "Antarctican Drinking Song" by Gwar, and "Agora Killed by a Mountain Lion" by 16.

  7. This week on Dread Media, Duane joins Desmond to discuss a double feature of films directed by Xavier Gens from 2017. Gens broke out during the New Wave of Extreme French Horror in the aughts with his politically charged film Frontiere(s). But how do the Lovecraftian Cold Skin and exorcism film The Crucifixion match up? Listen to find out. You'll also hear these great tunes: "French Immersion" by Cancer Bats, "Welcome to the Island" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, "Crucify Me" by Black Mountain, and "Extremities" by Killing Joke.

  8. Dave and Ian are back with another two episodes of Automan. In "Ship in the Night," Walter and Automan travel to a Caribbean island to investigate the disappearances of several wealthy businessmen. In "Unreasonable Facsimile," Automan accidentally assimilates a soap opera and wants to fall in love. When he meets a woman connected with Walter's latest case, he thinks he has found love, but this brings up many philosophical questions about Automan's level of sentience. Are his emotions real or the result of an algorithm? If he is truly capable of feelings and autonomous thought, does that make him a lifeform and if that is the case does that mean that Walter is exploiting him for personal gain? Don't expect any of these questions to be answered though, as the story is more focused on making a profit for sub-standard helicopter parts. Dave tries out a new dramatic sound effect and institutes "briefcase full of money watch," while Ian shares the timespan during which he watched Eastenders and shares his hatred of one of the main characters.

  9. This week on Dread Media, our old friend Greg Lamberson stops by to give us a rundown on this year's Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, and some tidbits about his brand new film, Widow's Point. Check out for more information. Songs included: "Beyond Electric Dreams" by Bad Religion, "Fear (Main Theme from One Step Beyond)" by The Ventures, and "If Morning Comes" by Alain Johannes.

  10. After an absence during these trying times, Hey, an Actor! is back with a boom as The Brothers Wilson come out swinging and pitch their mettle against one of Hollywood's most overlooked Oscar winners: Anjelica Huston. To prove the point, this episode doesn't cover her Oscar win but her acclaimed performance of Morticia Addams in The Addams Family, her arch role in the film adaptation of children's classic The Witches, and also The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. The hosts also discuss power bottoms, Orange Wednesdays, and the problematic legacy of Roald Dahl, with which Pandy stokes Ian's ire by mentioning Taika Waititi on numerous occasions. [ 3:17:36 || 95.2 MB ]


  11. This week on Dread Media, we pay tribute to the legendary character actor from so many great films over many genres, John Saxon. The connective tissue between these two films is that he's the villain of both. First up, Chris and Desmond review the early Cronenberg outlier, the racing film Fast Company. Then, Tom goes solo reviewing the sword and sorcery film Prisoners of the Lost Universe. Songs included: "Licensed to Drive" by Black Mountain, "Fast Company" by Michael Stanley, "Prisoners" by King Dude, and "Drive Back" by Melvins and Mudhoney. [ 1:10:18 || 34.0 MB ]

    I had been eagerly anticipating Mary Trump's book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, for several weeks before I was able to download it from Audible. Admittedly, I had never even heard of Mary Trump before this book was announced, so at first, I was at least somewhat skeptical given that her family is almost entirely comprised of grifters, plagiarists, con-artists, and pathological liars. Plus, as previously mentioned, I had become almost numb to more tell-all books about Donald Trump. However, given that she is a clinical psychologist with a master's degree in English literature, I felt reassured that it would be a wise investment. I felt, perhaps, that she was the one shining light in this astronomically dysfunctional family. Indeed, after listening to the entire book (narrated by the author), she is one of the only people in the entire Trump lineage to have any sense of empathy, moral compass, or firm grasp of the English language.

  13. This week on Dread Media, Tom returns to discuss another straight-to-video franchise from the 90s / 00s: The Mangler! How can you get three movies out of a Stephen King short story about a demon-possessed laundry folding machine? Well, listen. We discuss The Mangler, The Mangler 2: Graduation Day, and The Mangler Reborn. Yikes! Songs included: "Welcome to the Machine" by Los Disidentes del Sucio Motel, "Mass Murder Machine" by Black Label Society, "CRASH" by Master Boot Record, "Souljacker Part I" by Eels, and "The Suffering Machine" by Buck 65.

  14. D-Generation X recruits two of their most unlikely members ever, Goldust continues to be on the mend, Steve Austin becomes the greatest stage tech in the history of wrestling, and The Rock reminds us that beepers were once a thing. Meanwhile, our opening contest serves as another big step towards the Attitude Era as The Legion of Doom defend their Tag Team Championships against The Road Dog, Billy Gunn, and new entrance music.

  15. This week on Dread Media, we are joined by the amazing Craig Sheffer. Craig talks about working with Clive Barker, Fire in the Sky, his wild connection to Demolition Man, where he's been the last few years, and his return to the spotlight in Greg Lamberson's brand new film Widow's Point. While we talk all about his more mainstream genre fare, I provide a Dread Media Top 5 Obscure Genre Sheffer films. All that, and tunes: "Widow" by Paradise Lost, "Only the Haunted" by Dog Fashion Disco, "Ascension" by Killswitch Engage, and "Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones" by Machine Head. [ 54:37 || 26.4 MB ]


  16. Ian Wilson welcomes back both Chris Johnson and Donovan Morgan Grant to the Flickchart Forum, as the trio undertake the most ambitious task to date: ranking the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to 2019. Each phase gets its own ranking before all 23 movies are judged against one another. Along the way, find out which hosts pick Iron Man 3, Thor: Ragnarok, and Avengers: Age of Ultron as their respective hills to die on. [ 4:55:17 || 144.5 MB ]


  17. This week on Dread Media, we get a little weird. First up, Tom and Desmond discuss Private Parts. No, not the Howard Stern film; it's a bizarre thriller from 1972. Then, Tom goes solo on (take a deep breath, Des), The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies. Yes, that's the title. Music included: "Knife in the Dark" by Void Realm, "When a Man Dies a Woman" by Amen, "Funhouse Mirrors" by Cash Flagg, and "Painful Reminder" by SNFU. RIP Mr. Chi Pig! [ 1:03:10 || 30.5 MB ]


  18. In 1981, legendary television producer Stephen J. Cannell unleashed his vision of a superhero TV program upon the world: The Greatest American Hero! Listen as Dan and Mike wax lyrical about the first two episodes ("The Greatest American Hero" and "The Hit Car"), gush about the force of nature that is FBI Special Agent Bill Maxwell, reveal what iconic role series lead William Katt nearly received, and talk about the strange connection the show has to the attempted assassination of President Reagan. [ 1:36:22 || 48.5 MB ]


  19. This week on Dread Media, the local crew returns after an outdoor viewing of the feel-good hit of the summer: The Platform. Join myself, Brittney, Jeff, Scott, and the first appearance of mostly silent Stacy as we spoil the hell out of this Spanish political horror masterpiece. Then, I go solo on Paul von Stoetzel's short film adaptation The Curse of Yig. Songs included: "Prison Song" by System of a Down, "Kick the Chair" by Megadeth, "Yig Snake Daddy" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, and "Unsolved Mysteries" by Natur. [ 1:00:25 || 29.2 MB ]


  20. On Week 46, Vince McMahon sits down with Jim Ross to say "Bret screwed Bret." How will Kellen and Tom side on the matter? (If you've listened to us before you probably know.) Meanwhile, The Rock and Stone Cold continue to make each other's acquaintance, and Rick Rude manages to be in two places at once. [ 1:45:47 || 50.9 MB ]
