  1. 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 ]


  2. 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 ]


  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ]


  6. 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.

  7. The moment has arrived! Dave and Ian come to the end of their 11-month viewing of Twin Peaks. In episode 28, Cooper deduces the way to open the Black Lodge and who will be Wyndham Earle's next target. Unfortunately, he is too late to stop Earle from causing chaos at Miss Twin Peaks and kidnapping Annie. In episode 29, Earle takes Annie into the Black Lodge with Cooper in pursuit. What awaits Cooper inside will put his very soul in jeopardy, and he may never be the same again. They also discuss Ian's fury at the final episode, Wyndham Earle dressed as the Log Lady, what Pete Martell's favorite video game is, and the long anticipated return of Statistician Ian to announce the next show that will be covered.

  8. This week, we have a couple haunted places that need to be stayed away from. The guy from CSI: Miami and his buds clean up asbestos at an insane asylum in Darryll and Desmond's review of Session 9. Then, Kiefer Sutherland is going to want to spend a lot less than 24 hours inside a haunted department store in Devil Dinosaur Jr's Stay Scary of Mirrors. There are tunes, as well: "Breaching the Asylum" by Kataklysm, "Fear of the Dark" by Iron Maiden, "Mirror, Mirror (Look into My Eyes)" by Def Leppard, and "Surviving the Abyss" by Crowbar.

  9. Kellen and Tom discuss the biggest match of the weekend, and it never aired on television or pay-per-view. After months of buildup, Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels finally throw down backstage in the locker room, for real, before Raw goes live on air. Oh, and on the actual wrestling side of things, there's the King of the Ring, Steve Austin v Shawn Michaels, and The Nation of Domination implodes. [ 4:34:42 || 128.0 MB ]


  10. This week may have you asking questions. It certainly has our film reviewers asking questions. First, Darryll and Desmond take in the bizarro fantasy film Sorceress, and end up wondering why more airbrushed images form the sides of cool vans in the 1980s never made it to the cinema. Then, VHS Massacre: Cult Films and the Decline of Physical Media has Duane and Desmond wondering if they're watching a documentary or someone's video podcast. At least there's music: "Sorceress" by Opeth, "Mental Twin" by Entombed, "Obsolete" by Black Cobra, and "In Vain, I've Sinned" by Jeremiah Crow. [ 1:16:17 || 36.8 MB ]


  11. Three Amazing Dread Media International Travel Tips for the Savvy and Sensual Horror Tourist from Desmond and Duane! Journey to an expansive Japanese manor with a mix of Imperial and modern design in the South Korean countryside, but don't go into the basement. You can even pay for your trip by serving the lady of the house as The Handmaiden. Backpack into the idyllic Slovenian countryside where you can meet some of the local boys and even try the local moonshine. Just don't ask the Killbillies what it's made of! Finally, lounge in the sun and take in the sights in scenic Brazil, but look out for the feral women, mummies, supervillains, werewolves, vampires, and warrior women, and take in Ivan Cardoso's Werewolf in the Amazon Collection. Don't forget to load up your mp3 player with an international selection of music: "Master & Servant" by Nouvelle Vague, "Sex (I'm a)" by Lovage, "Moonchild" by Iron Maiden, "We Who Are Not as Others" by Sepultura, and "There She Goes, My Beautiful World" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

  12. Once again, Hey an, Actor! pays tribute to a Dame thanks to Pandy, with Dame Maggie Smith featuring this month. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie not only saw Smith win her first Oscar, but inspired a HAA! drinking game, as well as a number of dubious Scottish accents. Then, Keeping Mum is such a self-contained film that The Brothers Wilson were loath to spoil anything in their review. Whilst Sister Act revisits the hosts' love of the franchise, and to what extent they consider the original film a prequal to Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. Additionally, the episode debuts the HAA! Book Corner, confirms Ian's questionable pension plan based around Chris Benoit, and Pandy names who he considers one of the most recognizable faces in cinema (to partial ridicule).

  13. While a stranded Captain Kirk finds true love on a peaceful world, Spock breaks The Enterprise ("The Paradise Syndrome"). And, a creeper tricks a handful of children into taking control of the ship so he can take over the universe ("And the Children Shall Lead"). [ 53:50 || 26.3 MB ]
