  1. This week on Dread Media, we're covering movies with wrestlers in them. They run the gamut from independent pet project to massive nine-figure budget blockbusters. First, Desmond and Duane review John Hennigan's action comedy Boone: The Bounty Hunter. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes a look at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Rampage. Some wrasslin' tunes for you as well: "Cover My Face" by Miranda Sex Garden, "Headhunter" by The Crown, "Bombshell" by Powerman 5000, and "Cult of Personality" by Living Color.

  2. The Brothers Wilson finally dive into world cinema as part of International Year, as they look at actress, martial artist, and Bond girl Michelle Yeoh. From the nuanced performance in the lead role of Aung San Suu Kyi biopic The Lady to West-pleasing wire-fu action flick Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and the all-out insanity of 1980s Hong Kong martial arts movie Yes, Madam, this month's selection is certainly diverse! Also, there's the imagery of British commentator Katie Hopkins as a martial artist, discussion of when biopics should be produced, and the next spin of the globe as Ian and Pandy look out for their next international representatives.

  3. Dave and Ian welcome you to their penultimate podcast on Wonderfalls. In "Safety Canary," Jaye and Eric go on their first date, but the animals have other plans for Jaye that involve her helping a zookeeper to steal two macaws for breeding purposes. In "Lying Pig," Eric's wife, Heidi, returns to win him back, and the animals seem to want Jaye to help her. Meanwhile, Mahandra is panicking about having spent the night with Aaron, and Karen is asked to dinner by another doctor at the hospital where Darren works. And in "Cocktail Bunny," Jaye is told by the animals that she needs to "save him from her," so she concludes that Heidi is going to try and kill Eric. Dave start a feature called "Falconry Corner," Ian does an impression of a macaw, and they marvel at the ever-changing internal architecture of The Barrel, Niagra's only bar apparently.

  4. Whilst Comic Reel-lief is on hiatus, Ian Wilson brings you a brand new segment in The Flickchart Forum, in which he and two guests compare lists about films of a certain genre, actor, director, or other viable. To coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Earth-2.net's James Bond podcast, For Your Ears Only, the inaugural segment ranks all 24 official Bond films, with Ian being joined by Andrew "Pandy" Wilson and Tom "Stavros" Hemmings. There's a welcome return to age jokes at the expense of Sir Roger Moore, Pandy learns a new word, Ian says something uneditably tasteless, and Dean Cain gets more mentions than his career probably warrants. The Flickchart Forum will return. [ 2:21:35 || 69.2 MB ]

     


  5. This week, Dread Media says welcome to Fright Night, for real! First up, Darryll and Desmond take a look at the original 1983 film. Then Duane joins Desmond to discuss the film's 1989 sequel Fright Night Part 2. Finally, your host reviews both the underrated remake from 2011, and the very not underrated sequel / remake Fright Night 2: Bad Blood. And that's not all! The music we play is almost entirely songs from the films we're covering. Here they are: "Approaching the House" by Brad Fiedel, "Fright Night" by J. Giels Band, "In the Midnight Hour" by Wilson Pickett, "No One Believes Me" by Kid Cudi, "White Cow" by Space Needle, and "Come to Me (Fright Night)" by Kevin Hufnagel. [ 1:35:54 || 46.3 MB ]

     


  6. Dave is joined by former Doctor Who writer Andrew Smith to discuss his work writing and script editing the return of Star Cops for Big Finish. They chat about Andrew's history with the show, how his experience in the police informed his work, how Linda Newton was nearly not involved, writing for Devis, and how you tackle having no sound in space on an audio production. [ 45:14 || 38.3 MB ]

     


  7. This week, we talk to Phil Nobile Jr. who is one of the men behind the rebirth of FANGORIA magazine. If you're wondering about how it all happened, this is the interview for you. Then, in a random segment of Growing Up Geek, Cade and Davin join me for a review of Avengers: Infinity War. Be warned: it gets spoilery. Songs: "Reborn" by Slayer, "Back Where I Belong" by Baroness, "Dopes to Infinity" by Monster Magnet, and "The End of Infinity" by Nekrogoblikon. [ 1:10:42 || 34.2 MB ]

     


  8. This week, we fight to bring you this episode in spite of our neighbors' crazy backyard bonfire party. If only there was an inanimate object that could make them stop. In totally unrelated circumstances, Desmond and Darryll present a review of the seminal John Carpenter film, and Stephen King adaptation, Christine. Then, Desmond gives a unique Dread Media Top Five of inanimate object horror. Only, this time, the top five is not focused on already existing content, but pitches for stories featuring horror centered around inanimate objects. All that and tunes: "Mean Machine" by Sugar Ray, "Christeen" by Devin Townsend, "Foreign Object" by Mountain Goats, and "Bad Things" by Jace Everett. [ 1:14:44 || 36.1 MB ]

     


  9. This week on Dread Media, we take a look at a film that Darrell and Desmond have talked about a lot on and off the show, but they've never covered it. Until now. Ninja Scroll, the sleazy 1990s anime masterpiece, gets its due this week. Then, Desmond gives you the Dread Media Top Five animated horror films. On top of that, there are tunes: "Swordmaster" by 3 Inches of Blood, "Enter the Ninja" by Die Antwoord, "4/16/05 Saturday" by Fantomas, and "Gigantic" by Helmet. Enjoy!

  10. To save his own personal timeline, Spock travels backwards in time and kill his dog ("Yesteryear"). To save a planet in the path of a hungry space cloud, The Enterprise enters said cloud's digestive tract where Spock pulls a Professor X ("One of Our Planets is Missing"). And to save her lovestruck male crewmates, Lieutenant Uhura takes command of the ship and gets shit done ("The Lorelei Signal"). Also: Dan resurrects a World's Finest Podcast character. [ 49:30 || 24.2 MB ]

     


  11. Friday Night's Main Event, Shotgun Saturday Night, Free for All, Ground Zero: In Your House, Raw is War: it takes a lot of time to cover all of this. Steve Austin takes target practice at top WWF officials, Undertaker finally gets his hands on Shawn Michaels, a match featuring two newcomers and no build almost steals the PPV, and Savio Vega develops a crippling addiction to triple threat matches. And that's just the tip of the iceberg as Kellen and Tom review one of the busiest weeks of the year. [ 6:26:19 || 179.1 MB ]

     


  12. Christian and Aaron return with a brand new PotterWatch! In this edition, they dive into Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Before that, however, there's a tease of the Patreon-exclusive news segment with Dave and Mike. If you like what you hear, please consider becoming a patron of The Show.

  13. This week, Dread Media has two feature reviews of young women giving very raw, commanding performances. First, Darryll and Desmond are shocked and enraptured by the amazing Isabelle Adjani in the disturbing Possession. Then, Tom Deja joins Desmond again to marvel at how amazingly well 16-year-old Sandra Escacena carries the film Veronica. On top of that, there's music: "Get Possessed" by Polkadot Cadaver, "Possession" by John Zorn / Moonchild, "Eclipse" by Doom Side of the Moon, "Blessed and Possessed" by Powerwolf. [ 1:10:37 || 34.1 MB ]

     


  14. Ian and Dave begin a new era of TABHAL now that Dave has moved to the North. They also watch three more episodes of Wonderfallls. In "Muffin Buffalo," Jaye is less than happy that she is getting a reputation as someone who helps people, but then finds herself trying to help one of her neighbors while the animals tell her not to help another. In "Barrel Bear," Mahandra and Jaye find themselves at odds over the legendary Millie Marcus who might or might not be first woman to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel and live. And in "Lovesick Ass," Jaye and Eric find themselves helping a Russian woman who has come to America to marry her true love only to discover that it is a 13 year old boy. Dave explains how Chicken Boo influenced his taste in comedy, they appoint an official TABAHL fashion correspondent, and Ian is reunited with one of HAA's greatest nemesis: Spencer Breslin. [ 2:14:47 || 52.8 MB ]

     


  15. Armed only with coffee, donuts, and a phantom mic stand, Pandy and Christian tackle one of their broadest topics yet: the police. They cover everything from crass good ol' boys to feminist roll models. Between ranking their favorite and the least competent men and women of the law, Pandy reveals his ties to one of Britain's finest actors, Christian contemplates an even darker cloning conspiracy than the Mewtwo Project, and both of these bad boys investigate the selection process for crime-fighting cyborg. [ 1:21:53 || 41.1 MB ]

     


  16. This week, it still isn't safe to go into the water - or the woods! First up, Tom Deja joins us again to talk about another Netflix production (this time a good one): The Ritual. Then, Rich the Monster movie Kid reviews the summer-vacation-on-the-water-gone-wrong film Piranha. Tunes included: "Bad Ritual" by Timber Timbre, "Sacrificial Ritual" by Endless Chaos, "Piranha" by Exodus, and "The Rune" by T‡r. [ 1:14:49 || 36.1 MB ]

     


  17. A special double episode sees the WWF go into a holding pattern as its regular flagship program is preempted. Taking the place of Raw Is War is Friday Night's Main Event, featuring Vader vs Bret Hart for the WWF Championship, and the unexpected debut of a future ECW and ROH World Champion as the WWF stays in a holding pattern on its way to Ground Zero: In Your House. [ 2:40:56 || 74.7 MB ]

     


  18. In this, the very first episode of Earth-2.net: The Show in the post-Episode 1000 Era, Dan and Mike sit down to discuss The Spirit. Wait! Don't run away! Not the 2008 pile of garbage written and directed by Frank Miller. But rather the 1987 made-for-TV pilot starring Flash Gordon, Major Kira Nerys, Veronica Clare, Professor Moriarty, not-Charles Napier, and Leon / Mondo. This fun mixture of light comedy and 1980s television action shouldn't work, yet somehow the creative masterminds behind the project made it the cult hit it is today. [ 1:04:39 || 32.9 MB ]

     


  19. In honor of Pandy's stage commitments at time of release, Hey, an Actor! enlists the help of Dame Angela Lansbury to make sense of their shared theatrical credit of The Pirates of Penzance. The Brothers Wilson not only cover this famed 1983 theatrical movie, but Lansbury's Oscar-nominated turn in The Manchurian Candidate, and her starring role opposite HAA's patron saint David Tomlinson in Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The episode features perhaps its strongest film recommendation since Smokey and the Bandit, as well as multiple references to English actor Jim Dale, and where the Tim Allen sitcom Home Improvement improbably correlates with one of our featured films. Additionally, Pandy uses the episode to road-test new characters such as Jakko Warner, EmailBot, and Statistician Vincent, whilst Ian is reunited with one of TABHAL's greatest running jokes: Rex Smith and his acting masterclass.

  20. This week, we have two great reviews of movies that weren't quite great. First, our old friend Tom Deja stops by to review a film that was surprisingly dropped on Netflix after the Super Bowl: The Cloverfield Paradox. And we learn that maybe there was a reason for such marketing magic. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid dips his toe into Euro-sleaze, and he's not sure he likes it in his review of The Blood Splattered Bride. The music, on the other hand, is great: "Your Own Reality" by Paradise Lost, "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, "Vampires" by Godsmack, and "The Great Disappointment" by AFI. [ 1:00:13 || 29.1 MB ]

     


  21. This episode of Dread Media focuses on a mid-level 1980s horror franchise produced by Sean S. Cunningham: the House films. Desmond peruses his way through Arrow Video's House Collection and is joined by Darryll on House, his son Cade on House II: The Second Story, and goes solo on The Horror Show and House IV (it's a long story). And we play songs along the way: "This House is Haunted" by Alice Cooper, "Board Up the House" by Baroness, "Our House" by Madness, "The House That Dripped Blood" by The Mountain Goats, and "Haunted House" by Antiseen. [ 1:36:25 || 46.5 MB ]

     


  22. Series 10 kicks off with The Doctor meeting Bill Potts as they run away from an alien disguised as Bill's crush ("The Pilot"). Then the new companion is treated to a future where emoji-faced robots mulch people if they become sad ("Smile"). [ 1:25:25 || 41.3 MB ]

     


  23. This week, Dread Media celebrates 550 episodes with a bit of alien-themed sci-fi / horror. First up, Duane joins Desmond to discuss Gareth Edwards' first feature: Monsters. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid stops by to review Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Of course, we've got some tunes so out of this world, they're probably made by aliens: "Alienized" by Volbeat, "Day 41: Every Walk a Quarantine" by Trap Them, "Body Snatcher" by Billy Idol, and "Invasion" by Nekrogoblikon.
