  1. 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.

  2. 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 ]

  3. 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 ]

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 ]

  7. 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 ]

  8. 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 ]

  9. Ian and Dave bring The Year of Cheese to a close with the final three episodes of Manimal. In "Scrimshaw," Chase finds himself on the hunt for treasure when Brooke discovers a walrus tusk with clues to a hidden fortune etched on it. In "Breath of the Dragon," Chase comes to the aid of an old family friend when his Chinese restaurant comes under threat from a local gangster. And in "Night of the Beast," Chase and pals go on a camping trip and end up foiling a plan by the mob and a corrupt sheriff to pressure a small town to legalize gambling. The also discuss the series as a whole, look back at the past year of cheesy goodness, and look forward to a very different show for 2016. [ 2:34:55 || 57.3 MB ]

  10. The seventh of Ian Wilson's Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief is here, with the Pandemon calling for the return of The Soapbox, which was last used to allow Adham Fisher to wax lyrical about Man of Steel. This episode's discussion takes in the development of the comic book movie and how much of a future the sub-genre has. It's a broad topic and a long conversation to boot. But who is Ian's colleague-in-chat? Will Ackerman? Hannah Krueger? Dave Probert? Donovan Morgan Grant? It's definitely one of them! [ 2:46:20 || 80.2 MB ]

  11. Last year, The CW used the success of their grounded take on Green Arrow to launch a TV show that needed to be much more embracing of its comic book roots: The Flash. Chris Johnson and Donovan Morgan Grant cover everything in the first season from the cast to the villains to individual episodes, examining how well this incarnation of The Scarlet Speedster translated to the small screen. And, since it's a CW show, you can expect more than one reference to Smallville along the way. [ 2:44:20 || 79.3 MB ]

  12. We end Yellow Christmas in style with a slew of films from the sleazy history of giallo. From 1972 all the way to 2015, five films outline the blood, black gloves, and boobs that we all love so much. First up, Desmond and Darryll dust off their film-reviewing prowess in Sergio Martino's sleazy Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key. Then, Desmond and Duane discuss the violence against women and the storied and confusing history of Goblin in their review of Dario Argento's Tenebrae. In the first of an unprecedented two Stay Scaries, Devil Dinosaur Jr. looks at Lamberto Bava's failed television project that he turned into a feature film: A Blade in the Dark. Then another Argento film gets covered as Richard the Monster Movie Kid wades into the loaded question that is Argento's Phenomenon (AKA Creepers). Devil Dinosaur Jr. returns for another Stay Scary, taking a look at the Canadian filmmaking collective Astron 6's homage to giallo: The Editor. All this, a giveaway and music: "Carol of the Bells" by Steve Moore, "Vices" by Slayer, "Tenebre (live)" by Daemonia, "Flash of the Blade" by Iron Maiden, "Locomotive" by Motorhead, "From the Back of the Film" by Thrush Hermit, and "Silent Night, Deadly Night (acoustic)" by The Browns. Merry Christmas! [ 1:52:02 || 54.0 MB ]

  13. Labour number six of Ian Wilson's Twelve Labours of Comic Reel-lief sees another new gauntlet thrown down to be picked up: an opinion piece! It's unedited fun as the off-colour Englishman decides to step back and analyze the relative merits of Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and to what extent it has been a success. Think of it as a Previews episode, except that it looks backwards instead of forwards and covers films that have already been reviewed under the banner of Comic Reel-lief. [ 50:15 || 24.7 MB ]

  14. To round off 2015, The Brothers Wilson have their say about two films from the British writer / director Richard Curtis. Is there more to Four Weddings and a Funeral than a bungling Hugh Grant and a very clear structure? Would Love Actually work better as 10 individual films? Which brother will abuse his role as guest editor? There's also the massive thrill of the first HAA! Awards (The Tomlinsons)! And, because it is Christmas, there are also some hilarious and revolting outtakes from the first two years of the show. [ 3:18:34 || 95.7 MB ]

  15. The 2015 The Show Advent Calendar wraps up with an episode like no other. Join Ian, Dave, and Mike as they discuss Darkman in this completely unedited yuletide treat. As you listen, ponder two questions: Why is this episode nearly seven hours long when the discussion is only three-plus hours in length? And, what does Garfield Minus Garfield have to do with anything? [ 6:57:12 || 200.7 MB ]

  16. Mike introduces a brand new segment entitled Silver Linings, in which he attempts to find the best in the worst. First up for Silver Linings? The 2015 Jem and The Holograms movie! Following that, the final three Star Wars Read-Along Adventures are presented, and they are the Special Editions of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. [ 1:10:45 || 34.3 MB ]
