The first labour requires Earth-2.net's British correspondent to finally deliver a retrospective of the Comic Book Movies of 2014, which features the return of Kazooioke, a guest appearance from Statistician Ian and the long-awaited Comic Reel-lief review of Guardians of the Galaxy.

  7. This week, Apocalyptic August rolls on as Desmond and Duane jettison to the far flung future of 1990! First in this double feature of Enzo G. Castellari's Italian Apocalypse films, a ripoff of The Warriors of the highest order: 1990: The Bronx Warriors. Then, they tackle the sequel, an Escape from New York ripoff: Escape from the Bronx. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives us some Charleton Heston goodness in his review of The Omega Man. Of course, there's a mixtape for this insane future of motorcycle gangs and mysterious foodstuffs: "New York Groove" by Ace Frehley, "Apocalypse New York" by Jay Chattaway, "Get Bronx" by Sick of it All, "The Omega Man" by Iron Savior, and "Gangland" by Iron Maiden.

  8. This time, the Commonwealth Crew takes on the first foray of former hardcore porn director Barry Sonnenfeld into mainstream film, and it's a good one. In their discussion of 1991's The Addams Family, the two discuss perfect casting, weird childhood crushes, and drunken socialist pop / punk bands from the 90s. [ 20:50 || 10.2 MB ]

  9. The long-awaited return of the Horrorcorps (completely the fault of Dread Media headquarters) sees Reece and Alex taking on "Crystal Lake," a track by frequent Mega Ran collaborator Richie Branson. In the process of breaking down the beat, the music, and the rhymes, the boys make reference to when this episode was recorded (Christmastime 2014) and SpongeBob SquarePants. Enjoy.

  10. The Heroes have hit the end of the first season of Agents of SHIELD! Who's a big, fat friggin' Nazi? Who do The Heroes kind of unanimously hate by the end of this run of episodes? Where do they think the show needs to improve? Also: Will explains who or what is a Man-Thing! Join Will and Hannah for "Nothing Personal," "Ragtag," and "Beginning of the End."

  12. Kick off Apocalyptic August with us as we're all about post-apocalyptic bloodshed. First, though, Desmond gives a Dread Media Top 5 on Unconventional Apocalypse Films. Then Darryll joins him for a review of the Australian zombie apocalypse film Wyrmwood. Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes us on a trip down Damnation Alley. Finally, Desmond pays tribute to the late Rowdy Roddy Piper in his review of the bonkers mutant frog apocalypse film Hell Comes to Frogtown. Recorded music might not stick around after the big one, so let's go all out while we can: "War of the Zombies" by Creepersin, "Wormwood" by Michale Graves, "Light the Sky on Fire" by Jefferson Starship, "Pure Massacre" by Silverchair, and "Zombie Apocalypse" by Kirby Krackle. RIP Hot Rod! [ 1:34:39 || 45.7 MB ]

  13. Twenty episodes into the podcast's lifespan, but there's no slowing up Hey, An Actor! as it tackles three entries in the filmography of Jamie Lee Curtis! From the high-octane action-nonsense of True Lies, to the body-swap shenanigans of the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday, and the blood-pumping thrills of 1978 horror classic Halloween, The Brothers Wilson examine the talents of a second-generation Hollywood star. Along the way, the episode laments the tragedy of child actors, James Cameron's terrible sense of humor, and what makes for an influential horror film. And get ready for Pandy's most scathing review yet, and it's not for the faint of heart. Or Desmond Reddick. Or Kelly Osbourne. [ 2:45:30 || 79.8 MB ]

  14. It's Hittites, Satanists, and Pagans (oh my!) this week as Dread Media once again takes on the theme of cults. First up, Desmond and Darryll take in a viewing of the early Wes Craven film Deadly Blessing. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. dissects The Seventh Victim. And, finally, in tribute once again to Christopher Lee and what many consider to be his finest role: The Wicker Man. Don't forget to enjoy some culty hymns: "Come Join Us" by Bad Religion, "Make Yourself" by Incubus, "Just Another Victim" by Helmet and House of Pain, "Corn Rigs" by Paul Giovanni, and "Cult" by Evile.

  15. Dave and Ian continue to forge their way through Crime Traveller. In "Fashion Shoot," Slade and Holly use the time machine to investigate the murder of a fashion designer. In "The Revenge of the Chronology Protection Hypothesis," Slade is shot and critically wounded, so Holly travels back in time despite her own theories stating that she can't change what happens. They bemoan some appalling writing, get one episode which is closer to what Dave would like the show to be, and discuss why why Ian is like Captain America. [ 1:34:11 || 38.8 MB ]

  16. "Frustrated isn't the Goddamn word for it. This is Bullshit!" And just like that we realize that the Attitude Era may be closer than we think. On the final episode of A Cure for the Common Podcast before Wrestlemania, Shotgun retools once again with Brian Pillman on commentary and the highly hyped debut of Sunny Undercover, while on Raw we have our final build to Wrestlemania, including a steel cage match between Bret Hart and Sycho Sid. That is, if The Undertaker doesn't destroy the cage first. [ 2:41:54 || 76.1 MB ]

  17. This week, Dread Media takes a look at a selection of anthology films. Some good, most bad, you'll have to figure it out. First up, Desmond and Darryll sit down for Darryll's birthday to take in a train movie. What could possibly go wrong? Night Train to Terror. That's what. Then, continuing his tribute to Christopher Lee, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews Dr. Terror's House of Horrors. Finally, you were probably unaware that Creepshow 3 existed. Devil Dinosaur Jr. is here to show you why you're better off that way. There's a wide variety of songs as well: "Midnight Train" by Ghoultown, "Nightrain" by Guns N' Roses, "Angel of Death" by Slayer, "My Girlfriend's a Robot" by The Hanson Brothers, and "Everybody but You" by Joe Turano.

  18. Eternal life. Who needs it?! Some people, I guess. This week, Dread Media ponders immortality, those who seek it, and those who seek to end it. First up, Chris joins Desmond for a review of Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive. Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a special treat as he discusses the second of the Kolchak TV movies, The Night Strangler, as well as discussing the property as a whole in this week's Stay Scary. Richard the Monster Movie Kid is back this week to pay tribute to the late (immortal in his own way) Christopher Lee in a review of the film The Man Who Could Cheat Death. There's also a varied set of tunes for you to plug into your ears: "Immortal" by Helloween, " Only Lovers Left Alive" by The (International) Noise Conspiracy, "Built to Last" by Sick of it All, "The Portent" by Christopher Lee, and "Who Wants to Live Forever?" by Queen.
