  1. The delayed April episode of Hey, an Actor! sees The Brothers Wilson metaphorically tackle their second Dame: Helen Mirren. Rolling back the years from her Oscar-winning titular role in The Queen to her good-natured naturism in Calendar Girls and her turn as the villainess Morgana in the classic Arthurian legend yarn Excalibur, Mirren's varied career gives Ian and Pandy a lot to talk about. Be it the legacy of Tony Blair, dodgy Yorkshire accents, or the sheer number of British TV series that they can namecheck, the hosts spend the best part of three hours bringing you some St. George's Day cheer. But who is the actor that necessitates the power of editing when the C-bombs start flying, and which is the film that Pandy is adamant that he hasn't seen, to the extent that he brings Mother Wilson in to make her podcast debut?

  2. This week, it's a menagerie of different reviews. First, Chris and Desmond look at the first film to feature contentious superheroes fighting each other this year: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then, our friend, Rich the Monster Movie Kid returns in the first instalment of films honoring horror legends with birthdays in May with Peter Cushing in The Land of the Minotaur. Devil Dinosaur Jr. takes a shot at Terror in a brand new Stay Scary. Then Desmond goes solo on reviews of Scott O'Dempsey's debut gothic horror novella Mortemain, and two wildly different slasher films: Suspension and Lumberjack Man. And, of course, there are songs: "I Don't Wanna Be (a Superhero)" by Roadrunner United featuring Michale Graves, "Justice for All" by Social Distortion, "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath, "Prophecy of the Lazer Witch" by Brendon Small's Galaktikon, "Dead Memories" by Slipknot, and "Crooked Red Line" by Ihsahn.

  3. Ian and Dave embark on season two of Twin Peaks. In episode eight, on top of having just been shot, Cooper is visited by a spectral giant who makes cryptic predictions. Albert returns to town to investigate Cooper's shooting and deliver some news about Cooper's ex-partner, Maddie is having strange nightmares, and Leland Palmer undergoes something of a transformation after his murder of Jacques. In episode nine, the Horne brother continue to scheme, Audrey continues to get out of her depth at One Eyed Jacks, and the Scooby Gang sing a song for apparently no other reason than to annoy Dave. Also the Twin Peaks tree of douchebaggery is laid out and there is much discussion of cheese. [ 2:03:53 || 47.3 MB ]


  4. Jim and Hannah have a lot of things to say. In this episode, they tackle more Valiant, a comparison of price points on recent comics, ECCC announcements from Image and Vertigo / DC, and a whole wide array of topics. Comics discussed in detail include Quantum and Woody volumes 1-3; The Delinquents; Faith #1-3; X-O-Manowar volumes 1-3; Ivar, Timewalker volume 1; Black Panther #1; No Mercy #9; and then some.

  5. This week, Dread Media welcomes author and podcaster Jason White to talk about what happens to the weak in a zombie apocalypse in his novel The Haunted Country. Then Desmond goes solo on a review of The Boy. And the good news is: Richard is back! The bad news is: he's paying tribute to a friend and podcast legend who suddenly passed away this week. There's music, as well: "Sister" by Devin Townsend, "Black Mass" by Electric Wizard, "Evil Boy" by The Dead Boys, and "B-Movie Babylon" by Wednesday 13. RIP Vince Rotolo, host of the B-Movie Podcast.

  6. Jim and Hannah delve into the two demos for Final Fantasy XV ("Episode Duscae" and "Platinum"), that develops into a discussion about Square Enix, the Final Fantasy series in general, two amazing crossovers that will never happen, a dash of Persona, and a slightly spoilerific discussion of Life is Strange! [ 1:21:45 || 39.6 MB ]

  8. This week, Jay Lender and Micah Ian Wright, the co-writing / co-directing team behind the brand new found-footage horror film They're Watching, stop by to discuss their film, their work in every medium from video games to comic books to children's animation, and their jaunt into Eastern Europe for filming. And yes, there's a lengthy discussion of fire stunts. Then Desmond goes solo on reviews of House of the Witch Doctor and All Hell Breaks Loose. There's a gaggle of tunes, as well: "TV Casualty" by The Misfits, "Boonika Bate Doba" by Zdob si Zdub, "All Hell Breaks Loose" by Sick of it All, and "We Finally Go Back to 1915 (Extended)" by Serj Tankian featuring David Alpay.

  9. The final installment of The Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief sees Ian Wilson return to give a final recap of the comic book movies of 2015 and to preview all of the ones due out in 2016, which will be subject to future reviews. But has he done enough to appease the PanDemon and get rid of him for good? [ 28:20 || 14.0 MB ]

  10. The penultimate segment of The Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief requires Ian Wilson to review another really awful movie: Catwoman. Along with the host's thoughts on the Razzie award-winning, oft-derided spinoff to Batman Returns, Ian also marks a milestone and drops a big announcement regarding Comic Reel-lief.

  11. It's a loose theme of family this week as Chris and Desmond explore how a father plans to protect his family against a gang of escaped psychotics who believe he killed and replaced their psychiatrist in the under-seen classic Alone in the Dark. Then a brother and sister deal with the loss of their parents and the fallout of a vicious attack at their lake house in The Horror. Then, singer Kat Katz exorcises the loss of her mother and Desmond exorcises his constant listening of Agoraphobic Nosebleed's new EP in a review of ARC. There's some fun family tunes as well this week: "We Destroy the Family" by Fear, "Chop Up Your Mother" by The Sic Fucks, "Brother" by Alice in Chains, "Not a Daughter" by Agoraphobic Nosebleed, and "Family Tree" by Megadeth. [ 1:12:41 || 35.1 MB ]


  12. Everyone is talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Dan and Will would like to remind everyone of an earlier and greater team-up: Batman and Scooby-Doo. Okay, probably not, but join them regardless as they take a look at this oddly enduring crossover. [ 51:00 || 25.0 MB ]

  13. This week we celebrate 450 episodes with a retrospective on the flagship series of the greatest independent film company of all time: Troma Entertainment's Toxic Avenger. First up, Desmond and Duane pick their way through The Toxic Avenger, The Toxic Avenger Part II, The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie, and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger Part IV! Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on the special features found on the brand new Toxic Avenger Blu-ray boxset. Desmond's sons Cade and Davin join him for a brand new Growing Up Geek segment to discuss the 13-episode cartoon series from the early 90s: Toxic Crusaders. Then, Desmond goes solo on overviews of the two Marvel Comics series form the early 90s: The Toxic Avenger and Toxic Crusaders.

  14. This week, Dread Media presents an hour-long conversation with producer and screenwriter Stephen Scarlata about his origins doing a multitude of jobs on Roger Corman films in the 90s, producing the award-winning documentary Jodorowsky's Dune, writing scripts for Final Girl, and his upcoming film Beyond the Gates. Strap in! It's fun, and there's music: "Parallel World" by Kurt Stenzel, "Blood Stains the Circle" by Gorgoroth, and "Nebëhr Gudahtt" by Magma. [ 1:21:52 || 39.5 MB ]

  15. You've been wAiting a long time, but the PRoprietors of For Your Ears Only are back to officiaLly cover the 24th entry into the ofFicial BOnd canon: Spectre. But as the reboot meets the mOst enduring aspect of the Connery era, how will Ian WiLSon and, especially, ADham Fisher react to the blend of the original franchise and the era of Daniel CrAig? Further, how manY recurring characters cut the mustard? What's to be made of our new wave of villains? And just what has three years away from podcasting done to the Fisher? All will be revealed in our full episode coverage of Spectre! [ 03:43 || 3.6 MB ]

  16. This month, the great Meryl Streep's filmography is in the Hey, an Actor! spotlight. Ian's at his talkative best, which is just as well as Pandy's dog-tired and this has affected not only his analysis but also his jingles. But The Brothers Wilson pull through to review Streep's first Oscar-winning role in Kramer vs Kramer, her central role in 1985's Best Picture Out of Africa, and her lead in the big screen adaptation of the ABBA musical Mamma Mia!. Along the way you'll hear tales of The Parents Wilson, a gag resurrected from the fifth episode, and the sacrifice Pandy made to facilitate one of the very first Dark Knight Discussions on The Show. Meryl Streep probably deserves better. [ 2:56:45 || 85.2 MB ]


  17. Dave and Ian come to the end of season one of Twin Peaks. In episode five, Cooper and his team search for Jacques Renault but find the Log Lady instead, while Audrey starts work at her father's department store to find out what happens to girls who work on the perfume counter. In episode six, Waldo the minor bird is taken in for questioning and Cooper asks the Bookhouse Boys to assist him in an investigation, not knowing that Audrey has also found her way there. In episode seven, Donna, James, and Maddy investigate Dr. Jacobi, Leo burns the lumber mill with Shelly inside, Catherine learns of Ben's true plans for her, and someone gives Cooper a lethal visit. They round up where every character is at the end of the season, Ian's suspect watch continues, and Dave establishes the podcast's official policy on the pronunciation of the word gif.

  18. Just binge-watched season two of Daredevil and now you're sitting at home lamenting the lack of ninjas in your life? Dread Media's got you covered. It's weird ninjas this week as Darryll and Desmond dive into the sleazy zombie ninja epic Raw Force, and the 1980s gymnastics-instructor-ninja-possession film Ninja III: The Domination. Ninjas are the silent assassins of The East, but even they like to get down once in a while: "Last Ninjas Unite" by Gama Bomb, "Island of Domination" by Judas Priest, "Enter the Ninja" by Die Antwoord, and "Shadow Warrior" by Blue Oyster Cult.
