  1. There's less than a week until Christmas and what more is Christmas about than coming back from the dead? What? That's Easter? Oh shit. Well, zombies are the reason for the season this week on Dread Media. First up, Desmond and Jeff review a quiet and contemplative Arnold Schwarzenegger film (apparently they exist) about a parent's love for their child in Maggie. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid helps us decide if the Christmas slasher To All a Goodnight is worth asking Santa for. And if sober reflections on the nature of human life in a zombie film isn't your bag, how about Desmond and Duane's review of Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (AKA Scouts vs. Zombies). There are, of course, some tunes as well: "Zombie" by Michale Graves, "Maggie's Farm" by Rage Against the Machine, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" by Twister Sister, "Haunt You" by The Pack AD, and "Silent Nite" by Brantley Family Band.

  2. Ian and Dave close out the year by beginning a new show: Steven Moffat's Jekyll. In episode one, Doctor Tom Jackman has left his family, quit his job, and has gone into seclusion. He hires Katherine Reimer to act as a go-between for himself and his dark side. Things grow more complex when Jackman discovers he is being followed by several parties, and Mr. Hyde finds out his name from Benjamin Lennox who claims to represent the company that owns him. In episode two, Katherine drugs Dr. Jackman to find a secret, accidentally unleashing Mr. Hyde in the process. Plus, Benjamin conducts an experiment putting Dr. Jackman's son in danger, and Dr. Jackman meets his mother. They also discuss similarities between this and Moffat's later work, come up with their own episode titles, and make references to British sitcoms of the 1990s. [ 2:22:53 || 66.2 MB ]


  3. Will watches Bluetoes, the Christmas Elf and wonders why Santa has to be a jerk. Then Wendee, Dan, and Mike complete their Ewok adventure by discussing Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, which stars an oatmeal salesman, an assistant principal, and a Dame. [ 1:32:48 || 46.7 MB ]


  4. First, Will heads to Canada to look at A Cosmic Christmas. Then, in spirit of The Twelve Days of Christmas, and the 50th anniversary of his passing, Christian, Pandy, and Kelly discuss each of their 12 favorite Walt Disney songs. (Followed by a swift kicking of the songs and movies they have less-than-fond feelings for.) Which song does Pandy insist has gay undertones? Which of Christian's picks briefly traumatizes both Wilsons? And which classic Disney number is actually about Alan Turing? Before presenting the main course, however, Pandy and Christian serve an appetizer of outtakes from year two of List and Shout! [ 2:20:35 || 69.5 MB ]


  5. Mike dives into the The Show archives one more time and pulls out the final installment of The Fantasticast, in which Des and Mike (from 2008) discuss Amazing Spider-Man #1, Fantastic Four Annual #1, and What If? #1. First up, though, Will was happy. Then he watched Noel. [ 1:12:04 || 37.1 MB ]


  6. On the 12th day of the The Show Advent Calendar, Will has for you The 12 Days of Christmas. And Mike brings three Indiana Jones Read-Along Adventures: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. [ 47:55 || 26.4 MB ]


  7. This week we have a jam-packed show. First, a conversation with Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera and the Saw sequels) about his brand new movie, Abattoir. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on the time travel film Counter Clockwise. Then, Darryll and Desmond return almost eight years after discussing this film to talk about the brand new director's cut of The Exorcist III. There are tunes as well: "Let the Monster Rise" by Anthony Stewart Head and Alexa Vega, "Abattoir Blues" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "The Chronomancer II - Nemesis" by The Sword, "Legion" by Grand Magus, and "Sexy Santa" by Steel Panther. Enjoy! [ 1:48:12 || 52.2 MB ]


  8. Will tries to figure out why Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas is a thing that happened. Following that, Dan and Mike compare two versions of Captain Marvel: the 1941 serial Adventures of Captain Marvel and Shazam! from 1974. Also, tune in to learn The Lesson of the Day. [ 1:18:10 || 39.2 MB ]


  9. Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey is the first Rankin / Bass production Will talks about this year, and it might be one of the stranger ones at that. Then: It's Christmas morning, 1980-something, and Will and Dan are anxious to unwrap animated specials based on toys and games! Will they be as excited once they actually see what Santa left in their stockings? (Spoiler: No.) [ 1:26:30 || 43.1 MB ]


  10. Hey, an Actor!'s Year of Grey concludes with their longest episode to date, dedicated to the late, great Sir Christopher Lee. Such is his filmography that The Brothers Wilson open the show with a look at the seminal British folk horror epic The Wicker Man before looking at his very first portrayal of literature's greatest vampire in the Hammer horror classic Dracula. And what will Pandy think of closing the year with Jinnah, a biopic in which Lee portrays the founder of Pakistan? The hosts also touch upon their subject's remarkable lifetime, whilst bad impressions are abound, ranging from such celebrities as Michael Yorke and Ian Wilson. In addition to a Pandy Parody, The Brothers Wilson also play detective to uncover which famous world leader has received a c-bomb from train driver Dave Probert! [ 3:27:53 || 100.2 MB ]


  11. Will takes a look at a Norse Holiday tradition with Disney's From All of Us, To All of You. Then it's time to cover your mouths and wash your hands, because Pandy and Christian discuss maladies and their cures in fiction. What cure's side effects include drowsiness, sexual nightmares, and sleep crime? Who is unfortunate enough to suffer from Cobbles? And which medication did the late, great Robin Williams invent?

  12. This week we are talking all about bad choices. First up, we interview Scott B. Hansen about his film The Possession Experiment, in which a college student invites a demonic possession into his body for a school project. Bad idea. Then, a young woman decides to join a mysterious billionaire's private game in Rich the Monster Movie Kid's review of Would You Rather? Bad idea. Finally, two old friends reconnect and go to another weird rich guy's house and perform crazy antics for desperately needed cash in Desmond and Darryll's review of Cheap Thrills. Probably a bad idea. But a good idea is music: "Open Your Eyes" by Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, "All Rise" by Wovenwar, "Sell Your Soul" by Hollywood Undead, "Bloodstains" by Agent Orange, and "Betty Ford for Christmas" by Leif Garrett & The Crush Ups.

  13. The 2016 The Show Advent Calendar begins here! Dan and Mike dive into Dr. Strange. Not the surreal blockbuster from 2016, but the oddly faithful made-for-TV movie from 1978. Before that, though, in the first of 25 segments, Will takes a look at Christmas Specials that Time Forgot, starting with Christmas in Tattertown. [ 59:21 || 30.0 MB ]


  14. This week, we present two transgressive psychodramas from Artsploitation Films with a modern take on Irish folklore sandwiched in the middle. First up, Desmond and Duane try to make sense of the increasingly paranoid and brutal Observance. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid tells us all about The Hallow. Duane and Desmond return to discuss the profane, and difficult to comprehend, Meat. There are songs as well: "Watching Alice" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Private Eye" by Alkaline Trio, "Husk" by Dry the River, "A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat" by Cattle Decapitation, and "X-M@$" by Corey Taylor.
