  1. Dave and Ian embark on what might be their most divisive show to date, Russell T. Davies' Dark Season. In the first three-episode story, the sinister Mr. Eldritch donates free computers to a local school and gives each child a computer to take home, free of charge. The only person not convinced of Mr. Eldritch's good intentions is pupil Marcie Hatter. Marcie, alongside her friends Reet and Thomas, decide to investigate and discover that a man whose car has the numberplate "Nemesis" might not be as benevolent as he claims. Ian is unhappy at finding his own Crime Traveller, there is a celebration of the career of Cyril Shapps, and they encounter their second Oscar winner. [ 1:38:17 || 37.6 MB ]

  2. This week, we look at some new versions of classic monsters. First, Desmond and his sons review the brand new Kong of Skull Island. Then, a fresh mockumentary take on vampires and werewolves in Duane and Desmond's review of What We Do in the Shadows. Here are some monster songs: "Loch Ness Monster" by Big Dipper, "Kong at the Gates" by The Misfits, "Vlad the Impaler" by GWAR, and "Our Savage God" by Sleep of Monsters. [ 58:17 || 28.2 MB ]

  3. Why are Dan and Mike covering Marvel Team-Up #32, along with The Brave and the Bold #118, instead of an issue of Marvel Two-in-One? For the answer to that, you'll have to listen. But that's not why you're here. You're here to hear about that dog. That poor, poor dog. [ 51:50 || 27.5 MB ]

  4. This week, we present a return interview with our friend Thomas Deja about his latest urban fantasy superhero book, Shadow Legion: Nightmare City, movies, comic books, politics, and whatever else comes to their troubled minds. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and his experience seeing it in theatre with Joe Bob Briggs. There's a soundtrack to all of this, of course: "Living in the Shadows" by Billy Talent, "Almighty Black Talons" by Seven Sisters of Sleep, "No One Lives Forever" by Oingo Boingo, and "Shadow of a Man" by Oysterhead.

  5. As they make their way through the fall 1983 Saturday morning animated lineup for CBS, Will and Dan bear witness to a surreal descent into abject madness, which astonishingly does not come at the hands of obnoxious tiny puppy knights, flashdancing beagles, or stock car racing moonshiners facing off against the grand wizard of the leprechauns. What is donut? [ 1:39:15 || 50.5 MB ]

  6. An anger-absorbing entity forces Captain Kirk to battle Mr. Freeze ("Day of the Dove"), and a dying Dr. McCoy marries a woman on a doomed world ("For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"). Also: Dan and Mike are asked to name their favorite villains and ships. [ 1:06:20 || 32.3 MB ]

  7. This week, Dread Media gets medical! First up, Desmond (and Darryll, a little bit) interview Chris Beaubien about his medical vendetta short film, Socket. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gets a virus in his review of The Girl with All the Gifts. There's also some songs in the waiting room: "Caught My Eye" by Danzig, an excerpt from James R Kim's score for Socket, "Creeping Death" by Metallica, and "Medication" by Queens of the Stone Age.

  8. The second 2017 episode of Hey, an Actor! profiles one of the most well-known actresses that Pandy had barely heard of: Jennifer Connelly. This month, we say "Solve my Maze!" as The Brothers Wilson review her best-known performance as a child actress in the cult fantasy epic Labyrinth, co-starring David Bowie. Then Pandy is exposed to Dark City for the first time. What side of the divide will he fall? And finally, A Beautiful Mind is the film that won Connelly her first Oscar, but is the fact that the film is award-bait off-putting to our hosts? On top of that, Ian is briefly duped into the Oscar credentials of What Women Want, Pandy abandons a planned jingle series based on how bad the first one is, The Orgs inadvertently create a new gameshow, and Chris Johnson weighs in to explain the long-running meme involving him and George Reeves. And if you enjoy the recording madness of an over-tired father, be sure to stick around until the very end! [ 2:44:47 || 79.5 MB ]

  9. Put on your monocles and smoking jackets! In this edition of £ist and $hout, Pandy and Christian collude with Donovan Morgan Grant to invest in the fictional rich. Specifically, noble philanthropists, heartless misers, and the foolish purchases made between the two. During their survey, the three gentlemen encounter Leicester's second coolest pair of brothers, learn to how to befriend a certain bearded comics legend, and reveal the true fate of the Titanic. [ 2:16:55 || 67.3 MB ]

  10. Ian and Dave cover the final two episodes of Jekyll. In episode five, Jackman's personality has apparently been deleted leaving Mr. Hyde to assimilate his memories, which leads him to making several discoveries about the original Dr. Jekyll. In episode six, Jackman and Hyde are united and are about to go after Claire and their children, who have been taken by Klein and Utterson. But first they must get past Mr. Carver, an experienced mercenary who has had a year to prepare for a battle with Mr. Hyde. They look back at the series, name their MVPs, and Statistician Ian is on hand to name the next show they will be covering. [ 2:06:10 || 46.5 MB ]

  11. We kick off this episode of cosmic horror by paying tribute to Bill Paxton. RIP, sir. Then Desmond and Darryll dive into Stuart Gordon's psychosexual cosmic Lovecraft adaptation, From Beyond. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives us a look at The Void, a brand new cosmic horror film. Of course, there's music: "From the Other Side" by King Diamond, "From Beyond" by Enforcer, "Into the Void" by Black Sabbath, and "Cosmic Embodiment" by Suns of the Morning Star. [ 1:19:13 || 38.2 MB ]

  12. Hannah and Jim get to talking, and oh man, do they have things to say. Such things include, but are not limited to: a review of X-O Manowar #1, a discussion of the impending Batwoman relaunch, discussion of Marvel's May cancellations, a review of that godawful vampire-Viking-angel-fighting-ISIS book, a Marguerite Bennett extravaganza, Carol Danvers getting hit with the idiot ball, and so much more. Four hours worth of more, in fact. Also, this segment finally has a name, which you won't know until the end of the episode. [ 4:07:15 || 121.6 MB ]

  13. Kids, don't watch crappy movies while drunk. Otherwise, you'll end up like Will and taking an inebriated look at 2015's Jem and The Holograms and 2001's Josie and The Pussycats. You start noticing the similarities. Then you realize how much the failure of films geared towards teenage girls is partially to blame due to them. You also get a bad hangover. [ 39:48 || 22.1 MB ]

  14. This week, Dread Media revisits modern horror series that have faded away and are coming back, or have very recently come back. First up, in preparation for the new film in the series, Desmond and his 11 year old son, Cade, review 2002's Gore Verbinski remake, The Ring. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid revisits the Resident Evil series as a whole before reviewing the final entry: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Of course, there's music: "Seven Days" by Corrosion of Conformity, "Day Seven: Hope" by Ayreon, "Mein Teil" by Rammstein, and "Something New" by Medication. [ 1:05:32 || 41.4 MB ]


  15. This week, it's a look at groups of crazy people. First, Desmond and Duane take a look at a cat-and-mouse game of serial killer versus serial killer in The Anatomy of Monsters. Then, sometimes the group of people are the different personalities in your head as Rich the Monster Movie Kid dives into M. Night Shyamalan's Split. Finally, Desmond and Duane look at a sober take on two high school boys who decide to murder someone in Fever. There are songs as well that may or may not want to kill you: "Cat & Mouse" by Pentagram, "You Belong to Me" by Bob Dylan, "Power of the Horde!" by L70ETC, "Fever" by Peggy Lee, and "We Will Fucking Kill You" by Anaal Nathrakh.

  16. The Brothers Wilson kick off the 2017 Hey, an Actor! blunderbus with a look at Canada's favorite SNL graduate who isn't Dan Aykroyd: Mike Myers. On the undercard, Pandy pulls no punches regarding his first time viewing of The Cat in the Hat, whereas Ian finally watches Wayne's World whilst sober. And which Austin Powers film do our hosts end up watching in the main event slot? Following the reviews, the feedback includes Britain's favorite train-based celebrity, Pandy is trolled by his wife, and the Reverend Organ reveals his problems with hats. On top of all that: Evie Wilson's favorite song is confirmed, as is the Hans Zimmer of cinematography. Intrigued? Listen in! [ 2:49:11 || 81.6 MB ]



  17. This week, Dread Media looks at two very convincing portrayals of psychopathy in cinema. First up, fascination with a real-life Hollywood starlet leads to a truly unsettling Romanian found footage film in Be My Cat: A Film for Anne. Then, a sobering portrayal of a young boy's journey to serial killer-hood in The Boy. There are some creepy-ass songs, as well: "Crazy Cat" by Helloween, "Wicked Pussycat" by Danzig, "Crimson & Clover" by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and "Inmates (We're All Crazy)" by Alice Cooper. Enjoy! [ 1:09:10 || 33.4 MB ]

  18. On their final night together, The Doctor finds himself in the middle of a diamond heist led by none other than River Song ("The Husbands of River Song"). (Notes: This episode was recorded before the passing of Sir John Hurt, as well as the announcement of Peter Capaldi's departure from Doctor Who.) [ 50:05 || 24.3 MB ]



    The bulk of the command crew letches on a blind, psychic dignitary, and the ship is lost in space. Again ("Is There in Truth No Beauty?"). Then, Kirk leads an away team into a deadly recreation of America's West ("Spectre of the Gun"). [ 1:10:20 || 34.2 MB ]
