  1. This episode is all about love, and it is dedicated to the late Geri Chamberlain who left us suddenly this week. Chris and Desmond take a look at teenage love gone very wrong in Some Kind of Hate. Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives an in-depth review of Guillermo del Toro's gothic romance, Crimson Peak. Devil Dinosaur Jr. takes on the zom-rom-com Boy Eats Girl. Of course, there are some love songs to go along with the selections this week: "Little Love Song" by Andrew WK, "Some Kind of Hate" by Murder by Death, "Red Right Hand" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Spitting Games" by Snow Patrol, and "You Don't Know What You Mean to Me" by Sam and Dave. RIP Geri, and please keep Richard in your thoughts. [ 1:13:43 || 35.6 MB ]

  2. The end is in sight as Ian Wilson has reached the tenth of his Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief. But it isn't going to be an easy ride as the PanDemon has decreed that the subject of the Labour be a review of one of the worst comic book movies ever created: The Spirit. [ 31:25 || 15.3 MB ]

  3. This week it's a double feature of reviews from Darryll and Desmond as they take on Larry Blamire's homages to 1950s drive-in schlock sci-fi films: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and The Lost Skeleton Returns Again. Then Desmond goes solo on a review of the first season of Fear the Walking Dead. Then there's music: "Skulls" and "Green Hell" by The Misfits, "Inferno Finale" by Keith Emerson, and "Lost Skeleton" by Michale Graves. RIP Keith Emerson. [ 1:02:29 || 30.2 MB ]

  4. It's been a few years, but The Real Protagonists have finally returned to the wonderful world of Nicolas Cage films with 1993's Deadfall. It's every bit as enjoyable as watching Cage snort a metric ton of cocaine could possibly be. Well, until they kill him off, anyway. [ 2:10:03 || 65.5 MB ]

  5. This week we are once again joined by Aaron Allen, festival director and lead programmer for the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival in Hamilton, Ontario. Aaron and Desmond have a fun conversation about each of their involvement in the festival over the past few months and the amazing films that are screening there. Maker sure to head to Hamilton, Ontario on March 11th and 12th if you're in the area to check it out and be supremely entertained. Then Desmond goes solo reviewing the first five issues of Carnage from Marvel Comics by Gerry Conway and Mike Perkins. There's a slew of new heavy metal tunes to guide us through the episode, as well: "Dark Reflections" by Exumer, "Things to Come" by Michale Graves, "Carnage" by Entombed, and "Sudden Death" by Holy Grail. Check out [ 1:34:07 || 45.4 MB ]

  6. Rev your engines! Pandy and Christian investigate the world of fictional vehicles. Which vehicle sends Pandy into fits of childish giggles? What is a hover-twat? As the curse of the middle list strikes again, join them as they discuss mechanized beasts that traverse land, sky, sea, and space and the people who pilot / control them. Also, visit the forum thread for the episode to answer our listener question: What is the worst vehicular collision in fiction? Ready, set... LIST! [ 1:10:25 || 34.1 MB ]

  7. This week, we end Feral February in style as Darryll and Desmond look at the senior citizen werewolf epic Late Phases. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid suffers through that other Lon Chaney Jr. werewolf film: Face of the Screaming Werewolf. Then, Desmond goes off-theme and discusses a few solo reviews: Black Creek (Gregory Lamberson's newest novel), the Martyrs remake, and A Place in Hell. There are, of course, some werewolfy tunes, this week, many of them programmed by listener Eric Wieladek: "Medieval Werewolf" by The Dave Brockie Experience, "Sorrows of the Moon" by Celtic Frost, "Night Wolf" by Krokus, "Lycanthropy" by Six Feet Under, and "The Wolf Man Kindly Requests..." by Clutch.

  8. As Hey, an Actor! continues its coverage of veteran actors in 2016, The Brothers Wilson cover Pandy's desired pick for the year: the double Academy Award-winning Dustin Hoffman. One of his Oscar wins is covered in the review of Rain Man, whereas the other films amount to the acclaimed political biopic All the President's Men and Hoffman's breakout role in The Graduate. Along the way, Simon & Garfunkel punctuate the episode, whilst questionable references are made to children's TV show Zzap and Robin Thicke, Ian explains how Booker T would improve The Graduate, and Pandy makes the songs of Morrissey utterly profane. Also, Statistician Ian meets the PanDemon. [ 2:27:43 || 71.3 MB ]

  9. Ian and Dave continue to make their way through the first season of Twin Peaks. In episode two, Cooper employs an unorthodox technique to narrow down who the mysterious "J" might be, and acerbic FBI forensics expert Albert Rosenfield arrives in Twin Peaks. In episode three, Cooper tells Harry about a dream he had which he believes will lead him to Laura's killer, Harry has enough of Albert, and Laura's funeral becomes a spectacle. In episode four, Cooper and Harry track down the one armed man, Andy has problems handling his weapon, and Audrey begins an investigation of her own. Ian reveals his dark past in Canada, there's a Venn diagram of Paul Verhoeven and David Lynch, and they introduce a new feature: The Log Ian. [ 2:30:57 || 56.7 MB ]

  10. 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. [ 1:24:38 || 40.8 MB ]

  11. 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 ]

  12. 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. [ 2:08:17 || 61.8 MB ]

  13. 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 ]

  14. 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. [ 1:25:50 || 41.4 MB ]

  15. 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. [ 1:46:20 || 50.3 MB ]

  16. 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 ]

  17. 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. [ 1:12:29 || 35.0 MB ]

  18. 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 ]

  19. 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 ]

  20. 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.
