  2. This week on Dread Media, we take a look at some of the best horror films from 2019, both independent and big studio releases.

  3. It's that time again: time to celebrate the best of 2019! In this episode, Desmond runs down his favorite books, television, comics, movies, music, and other releases of the year. Hope all the Dreadites had a safe and happy New Year. Let's crush 2020! The songs this week are my favorite releases of the year. Go buy everything I talk about. [ 1:16:31 || 36.9 MB ]


  4. The end of The Year of the Rings is upon us, and in a surprise twist that rivals the film Soylent Green, this month's person of interest is the Knight of New Zealand himself: Peter Jackson! The brothers explore two non-Rings films in the form of the 2005 mocap-based gorilla snuff film King Kong, and whacky murder romp Heavenly Creatures. They also discuss the highs and lows of the six Rings films. Along the way there a traditional festive challenge from Christian Honore, which posits which Nintendo character Sir Ian McKellen would best suit, we discover Peter Jackson's cheeky-chappy side in his very own jingle, and did someone say "Email-bot redemption arc?" Plus: a Tomlinson awards that bucks many a trend, and some incredibly bad taste outtakes! Thank you all for a fabulous year of HAA! [ 3:14:55 || 187.5 MB ]


  5. Ian and Dave see out 2019 with the last two episodes of Crazyhead. In "Downward Facing Dog," Raquel goes on a date with Harry while Amy tries to warn her about the vision of Harry attacking her. It soon becomes clear that Harry is not telling the whole truth. In "Beaver with a Chainsaw," it is Halloween night and all of Callum's plans are coming to fruition. The gates of Hell are about to be thrown wide open, and the only people standing in his way are Amy and Jake. They also discuss the series as a whole, what they would have liked from a second season, and name their series MVPs. Then they welcome Statistician Ian to let them know how they are going to be kicking off 2020! [ 1:59:26 || 88.1 MB ]


  6. This week, we ride out the end of the year with a look at the only collaboration between Dread Media favorite actor Nicolas Cage and Dread Media favorite director Werner Herzog: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Then Tom stops by to give us his thoughts on Cage's historical horror action film Season of the Witch. Finally, I do a top five of recommendations for Nicolas Cage / Werner Herzog double features. All that, plus tunes: "New Orleans is a Dying Whore" by Down, "New Orleans is Sinking" by The Tragically Hip, "Season of the Witch" by Hole, "Wrath of God" by Halford, and "This Year" by Mountain Goats.

  7. Happy Holidays from Dread Media headquarters as we present the annual Christmas episode! This year is a little different, because Tom Deja and I didn't settle on the fact that I, Madman was a Christmas movie until the end of our review. That's okay, because even if you disagree, Tom comes back to go solo on Secret Santa. And, of course, here are your requisite Christmas Scarols: "No Presents for Christmas" by King Diamond, "Diary of a Madman," by Ozzy Osbourne, "Zombie Claus" by Psychostick, and, obviously, "Silent Night, Deadly Night (acoustic)" by The Browns.

  8. This week on Dread Media, it's the return of the Roadkill Review as Darryll and Desmond take in a special viewing of Michael Paszt's Nail in the Coffin: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro at the Whistler Film Festival. Then, Tom Deja goes solo on a review of Rivers of Darkness, which features wrestlers Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, and Psycho Sid (so you know it's good). Finally, Desmond returns for a Dread Media Top 5 of wrestling documentaries. Songs included: "Hate the Living, Love the Dead" by The Misfits, "I Wanna Be Sedated" by Mirel Wagner, "Slippin' Into Darkness" by War, "(F@*ked Up) Beyond Belief" and "Coffin Nail" by Death by Dishonor.

  9. 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 ]


  10. 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. Listen now so you can vote in the 2019 Tomlinson Awards! [ 3:10:26 || 91.8 MB ]


  11. 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 ]


  12. 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.

  13. 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.
