  1. This week, Dread Media takes a weird side road in Feral February. Duane joins Desmond to discuss the werewolf-themed work of Ross Patterson (AKA St. James St. James), those being the historical action comedies FDR: American Badass and Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid steps in to give a review of (and the convoluted history behind) I Was a Teenage Werewolf. Of course, there are songs: "Game for Life" by MC Breed, "A Song for Helen" by Deacon, "Helen Keller" by The Erotics, "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" by The Cramps, and "12 Steps to Rock n' Roll" by The Young Werewolves.

  2. While checking in on a planet previously visited by humans, Kirk and Spock discover a world of would-be 1920s Chicago mobsters ("A Piece of the Action"). Following that, The Enterprise is plagued by a massive single-cell organism ("The Immunity Syndrome"). (Please pardon the slight echo of Mike's line.) [ 55:50 || 27.3 MB ]

  3. This week we have a massive episode. First we pay tribute to a friend of the show, Mark Justice, author and host of the long-running Pod of Horror. Then Duane and Desmond figure out how babies are made with their review of Howling III: The Marsupials. Then Desmond tries to get the taste out of his mouth as he goes solo on Howling IV: The Original Nightmare, Howling V: The Rebirth, Howling VI: The Freaks, and The Howling: New Moon Rising. Then, Chris joins us to discuss the end of the franchise with a high school werewolf love story with an uncanny connection to Dread Media continuity: The Howling Reborn. And that's not all! Devil Dinosaur Jr. dives further into the Paul Naschy el Hombre Lobo filmography with The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Women, and Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes on The Undying Monster. There's tunes, too: "Endless Howl" by Barishi, "Wipe Your Tears Away" by Vitamin Z, "The Howling" by Within Temptation, "Bloodfeast" by The Misfits, "Animal" by Pearl Jam, and "Wolves of Chernobyl" by Municipal Waste.

  4. This week we sink in to the supposed traditional post-Mania slump, but could Revenge of The Taker buck that trend and be a hot contender for best PPV so far? Austin v Bret comes to the boil, Undertaker and Mankind have a blistering encounter, and Tiger Ali Singh gets a tepid response. Also featuring a show that's a shell of its former self in Shotgun Saturday Night, and the Monday Night War comes under fire from a Loose Cannon. [ 3:08:57 || 90.8 MB ]

  5. This week, some important things are discussed: Desmond and Darryll discuss whether or not your sister is a werewolf bitch as they review Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf. Rich the Monster Movie Kid wonders if you can show a werewolf bum on television in his review of the TV movie Moon of the Wolf. Finally, is The Wolfman so angry because he got bit by a yeti? Devil Dinosaur Jr. investigates in his Stay Scary of Paul Naschy in The Fury of he Wolfman. And while the descriptions above may or may not be true, the songs listed here do, in fact, get played this week: "Sacramental Sister" by Powerwolf, "Howling (Club Mix)" by Steve Parsons and Babel, "Bark at the Moon" by Ozzy Osbourne, "The Wolf is Loose" by Mastodon, and "The Howling Man" by Night Demon.

  6. The two nicest heels in the world return to update everyone on how the past few months have gone, along with the expected wrestling and games talk. Topics include: Aaron's video game debut and his new belt, Damien's new blog, slightly spoilery Lucha Underground and NXT thoughts, Undertale's popularity, working for "exposure," getting noticed in creative fields, our VR future, and what a game created by Damien would be like.

  7. The ninth of Ian Wilson's Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief sees the man in question take in three films on the same subject, that being Frank Castle, The Punisher. Aided by no lesser source than Michael David Sims as to what to look out for, Ian takes in The Punisher from 1989, The Punisher from 2004, and 2008's Punisher: War Zone. Which is the most compelling of these three very different iterations of the same character? Listen in to find out! [ 1:10:40 || 34.1 MB ]

  8. Gather your pack and howl at the moon as we kick off Feral February! This first episode in our month dedicated entirely to werewolves takes a look at some venerable, but perhaps not entirely well-known classics of the sub-genre. First off, Desmond and Darryll start what's going to be a comprehensive look at the most enduring werewolf franchise with 1981's The Howling. Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. goes back two full decades to take a look at Hammer's The Curse of the Werewolf before Rich the Monster Movie Kid goes back even further to 1956's science-y werewolf feature The Werewolf. There's some howling tunes for you, as well: "Up the Wolves" by The Mountain Goats, "Dirt Roads and Howls of Wolves" by Memento Mori, "Hairball Alley" by Rocket from the Crypt, "Of Wolf and Man" by Metallica, and "In the Hour of the Wolf" by Barishi.

  9. A Klingon saboteur's attempt to poison a colony is thwarted by an infestation of rodents ("The Trouble with Tribbles"), and Kirk gambles for the freedom of The Enterprise ("The Gamesters of Triskelion"). One of these is hilariously awesome and deserves its status as a classic episode of Star Trek, while the other demonstrates every Star Trek trope. [ 1:12:52 || 35.4 MB ]

  10. Kicking off 2016, Hey, an Actor! starts their profiling of more veteran actors with the renowned comedic tour-de-force Bill Murray. Ian and Pandy take in his early starring role in the army comedy Stripes; his most acclaimed dramatic role within Lost in Translation; and his most beloved film, Groundhog Day, which everyone loves apart from one of The Brothers Wilson who would rather watch Ghostbusters II instead. Listen in to hear not only which brother holds such an opinion, but also the general musings, which consider awful Christmas specials featuring James Cameron, the immense talent of Harold Ramis, and casting actors as the nightmarish Legend of Zelda character Tingle. [ 2:22:09 || 68.6 MB ]

  11. With the Year of Cheese squarely behind them, Dave and Ian embark on their biggest project to date: David Lynch's Twin Peaks. In the pilot, the town of Twin Peaks is struck by tragedy when popular local girl Laura Palmer is found murdered, and Twin Peaks Sheriff Harry S. Truman finds himself out of his depth. When a second victim is found alive having crossed state lines, Harry is relieved to find FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper assigned to the case. In episode one, Cooper begins his investigation in earnest, Donna and James grow closer, and a fish contaminates Pete Martell's coffee. They also discuss a potential battle of the Facebook groups, bemoan the fact that the DVD really wants you to play one of the special features, and Ian expresses his love of the Log Lady.

  12. This week we close out January in style. First up, Desmond and Darryll give a look at the horror comedy Zombeavers. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews the 1978 Carrie-ripoff, Jennifer. Desmond returns to go solo on two Troma releases: Joe Spinell's meta-narrative The Last Horror Film and the alternate history exploitation film Honky Holocaust. Of course, there's songs too: "Your Girlfriend's Head" by Zombina & The Skeletones, "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver" by Primus, "Jennifer" by The Eurythmics, "The Love Song" by Marilyn Manson, and "Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt" by Savage Messiah. [ 1:09:28 || 33.6 MB ]

  13. Dread Media's no stranger to the occasional diverse episode, and this week is a perfect example of that. First, Desmond and Chris pay tribute to David Bowie in their review of The Hunger. Devil Dinosaur Jr. reckons with Human Centipede 3. Finally, Rich the Monster Movie Kid talks about Kurt Russell's beard, among other things, in his review of Bone Tomahawk. There's also some diverse music: "Funtime" by Iggy Pop, "Sick of You" by GWAR, "213" by Slayer, and it's all bookended by "Cat People (Putting Out the Fire)" and "Lazarus" by David Bowie. RIP David Bowie. [ 1:21:38 || 39.4 MB ]

  14. The eighth of Ian Wilson's Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief sees a reunion between Ian and Tom Hemmings for a further Lists collaboration. The Englishmen are looking at the best and worst support villains and henchmen in the comic book movie subgenre, as well as picking 10 fictional characters each that would best suit such a movie. As part of their discussion, there's some dark humor from both hosts, as well as Tom confirming his links to Biggles, and Ian recounting an inappropriate show he participated in, which starred Adham Fisher. Also, is Ultraviolet better than The Wire? [ 3:27:50 || 100.1 MB ]

  15. We have a great show for you this week! First off, we pay tribute to Angus Scrimm who left the world this weekend, but he also left us his legacy as quite possibly the most imposing movie monster of the modern era. First-time director of Troma's B.C. Butcher, Kansas Bowling, comes on the show to talk about Kato Kaelin, the birth of the prehistoric slasher, and directing her first film at 17. Desmond goes solo on a review of Sinister 2 before giving away a copy of the Blu-ray in the last of our Yellow Christmas giveaways! Rich the Monster Movie Kid is back once again to take a look at Laserblast in the post-Star Wars glow. Devil Dinosaur Jr. Stays Scary on a review of Neon Maniacs. There's music as well: "Post Teenage Angst" by Kill My Coquette, "Alley Oop" by The Hollywood Argyles, "Home Sweet Home" by Lindemann, "Hangar 18" by Megadeth, "Live Wire" by Motley Crue, and "Cave Painter" by Schizoid Lloyd.

  16. The Doctor and Clara find themselves trapped in multiple dream worlds, with their only hope for salvation being Santa ("Last Christmas"). Plus: A special guest appears mid-show to deliver a block-based gift to one of the hosts, and Dan and Mike make an announcement concerning when Bigger on the Inside will return to cover season nine. [ 48:35 || 23.6 MB ]

  17. Look at that photo. We can type in this space that Sunny Undercover was one of the most entertaining edition yet (for all the wrong reasons). We can tell you that Ahmed Johnson has one of the most "I'm out of my depth here" moments all year. We can tell you Raw was broadcast from three different countries. We can tell you that the WWF doesn't seem to realize Apartheid has ended, but all you really want to know is what the heck happened to Goldust. Click the link to find out. [ 1:44:19 || 48.8 MB ]

  18. This is a jam-packed show for the New Year. We welcome 2016 by giving away three separate films in our Canadian Giallo giveaway, watch and review two of the best horror films of 2015, and pay tribute to Lemmy Kilmister. On top of that, your intrepid host's novel has just been released! So, listen to see who won Black Christmas, then listen to the epic length review of Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, and the short review of M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit. Then listen to see who won copies of each of those films on Blu-ray! Come back next week for another giveaway! There are songs, too: "In the Name of the Tragedy" by Motorhead, "Bon Appetit" by The Untamed, "We Are Family" by Suicidal Tendencies, and "Green Inferno" by Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Buy Mother of Abominations: A Monster Earth Novel by Desmond Reddick here: [ 1:41:59 || 49.2 MB ]

  19. While Mankind puts in a contender for promo of the year and most dangerous spot of the year in a match against Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels steals the show by taking his real hatred of Bret Hart in front of the camera. The change from Bret and Shawn not liking each other to hating each other is in Week 14 of A Cure for the Common Podcast. [ 2:28:26 || 69.2 MB ]
