  1. Dan and Mike discuss the exciting immediate future of The Edge of Forever, cover some Star Trek news, then they dive into three more episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series. First, Spock is critically ill, but the medication he needs to survive has been stolen ("The Pirates of Orion"). Then, some moron named Bem needlessly makes trouble for Kirk and Spock ("Bem"). And, lastly, the ship comes to life and plays rather deadly jokes on the crew ("The Practical Joker"). [ 1:19:00 || 38.4 MB ]

     


  2. This week we recommend taking a weekend away. Just go and explore a place you've never been. Darryll and I did. We watched a movie we'd never seen before. While we did, we stayed in room 1408. Rich the Monster Movie Kid went on a road trip and found a Tourist Trap. Enjoy your vacation. You may never return! Road trip mix tape: "Horror Hotel" by The Undead, "Last Night Radio 11:01 PM" by Stephen King, "Triskaidekaphobia" by Shooter Jennings, "Die, Die My Darling" by Metallica, and "Holiday" by Ginger Wildheart.

  3. Dave and Ian conclude their coverage of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) with the final two episodes. In "The Glorious Buntranek," Jeff and Marty's old secretary is in trouble, so Jeff and Jeanie travel to Eastern Europe to help her find her lost child who has been taken by a cult. In "Two Can Play That Game," an old school friend of Jeff asks for help when he believes that his father may not be dead. and Wyvern sends Marty to a spectral seaside resort to heal his connection with Jeff. They also discuss what they would have liked from a third series, defend the nation of Latvia, name their MVPs for the series, and Statistician Ian returns to tell them what they will be watching next.

  4. Dan and Will are back to discuss the 1994 Fox Kids Saturday morning line-up. What they find includes some dubious voice acting, a couple of things that don't live up to Will's memories, and one of the best superhero cartoons of all-time and it's not what you think.

  5. This week on Dread Media we present a feature-length conversation with our old friend Tony Wash of Scotchworthy Productions. Since the last time we talked, he's completed two films, The Rake and Skeletons in the Closet, and he's here to talk about them, directing Robert Z'Dar in his final role, and plans for the future. It's bookended by some good tunes, too: "Rake" by Wino, "Skeletons in the Closet" by Alice Cooper, and "5 Shots of Whiskey" by Hank Williams III. Enjoy! [ 1:39:07 || 47.8 MB ]

     


  6. The 10th anniversary episode of Bigger on the Inside is here! Today Dan and Mike look at what happens when two mid-regeneration Doctors cross paths ("Twice Upon a Time"), Peter Capaldi's run as The Doctor, and Steven Moffat's tenure as the force behind Doctor Who. Then, as a bonus, the guys discuss the original unaired pilot of "An Unearthly Child." [ 2:16:00 || 65.6 MB ]

     


  7. Hold your horses, listenership. The Brothers Wilson have a short announcement on the fate of Cate Blanchett month, and the (most excellent) reasons behind it. So please use the next few weeks productively and re-listen to all of our 2018 output to compile your ballot for the 2018 Tomlinson Awards which are now open! Ian and Pandy will be back before Christmas to bring you the featured subject of International Year, with Pandy dropping a very subtle hint as to who it may be.

     


  8. Get ritualistic with us this week. Whether your supernatural conjuring is done with just a prick of blood, a lengthened sequence of self-mutilation, or whether your ritual is meant to keep something away, we've got it all this week. First, you may want to rethink trying to conjure the Goddess Ishtar after listening to Desmond and Duane's review of American Guinea Pig: Sacrifice. Then, don't be a dummy and try on random masks in a movie theatre! Rich the Monster Movie Kid knows that now that he's seen Lamberto Bava's Demons. Finally, wrestling fan metalheads try to rescue a poor girl with symbols carved in her body, but are they doing the right thing? Read Adam Howe and James Newman's Scapegoat to find out. All that, plus some great music for your pre-ritual get-together: "Body and Blood" by Ghost, "Accept My Sacrifice" by Suicidal Tendencies, "Save Our Souls" by Motley Crue, "Sin and Sacrifice" by DevilDriver, and "The Ritual" by Testament. [ 1:27:56 || 42.4 MB ]

     


  9. In his effort to rehabilitate Missy, The Doctor drops the TARDIS into an unwinnable predicament. And Bill pays the ultimate price ("World Enough and Time"). Then, to save Bill and a handful of Mondasians, The Doctor attempts to persuade Missy and The Master to join him in one final battle ("The Doctor Falls"). [ 1:14:05 || 35.8 MB ]

     


  10. If you ever pine for the "good ol' days" of Dread Media, then enjoy that this week your host speaks through a tooth dangling out of his face. If that's too extreme for you, maybe this isn't the episode for you. First, Tom and Desmond review the brand new horror film that is trying desperately to be disturbing: Extremity. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a brand new Stay Scary segment on a film that is actually disturbing: Angst. There are songs as well: "Extremity Retained" by Napalm Death, "I'll be Careful, You'll be Dead" by Perdition, "Plans" by Bloc Party, and "Extremities" by Killing Joke. [ 1:05:30 || 31.7 MB ]

     


  11. Spock, Uhura, and Sulu are held prisoner by a race in search of a devastating weapon ("The Slaver Weapon"). Kirk, Spock, and McCoy become exhibits in a zoo ("The Eye of the Beholder"). And a D&D party is formed to prevent a galaxy-spanning war ("The J-"). [ 58:10 || 28.4 MB ]

     


  12. This month Pandy and Ian go toe-to-toe with The Muscles from Brussels himself: Jean-Claude Van Damme! In Pandy's front room, The Brothers Wilson chart the rise and fall of everyone's favorite kick-ass Belgian, focusing on recent low-key comedy Welcome to the Jungle, self-indulgent twaddle Double Impact, and amazingly bad / terribly brilliant video game adaptation Street Fighter. Questions also raised in today's episode include: In which of these films was JCVD coked out of his mind throughout filming? To whom will the brothers send either flowers or a pencil? And, what do the next two years of Hey, an Actor! have in store for Ian and Pandy? All this, plus Pandy has to blow his nose throughout the episode. Happy October! [ 2:19:44 || 67.5 MB ]

     


  13. We here at Dread Media hope your post-Halloween hangover is going okay. To help you out, we have three reviews of three very recent horror films. First up, Desmond took a special trip to go see Mandy with Darryll in Vancouver. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. returns for a brand new Stay Scary, in which he reviews Summer of '84. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews Halloween (2018). Of course, there are tunes: "Forging the Beast" by Johann Johannsson; "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh" by Celtic Frost; "Suburbia" by Press Club; "Don't Fear the Reaper (Instrumental)" by Tribunal; and "Halloween Theme" by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies.

  14. The 13th year of Earth-2.net: The Show is celebrated with the return of The Flickchart Forum. Ian Wilson is joined by the host of that very first episode of The Show, Michael David Sims, and the Hypnogoria head honcho, Jim Moon, as they rank the pre-2018 entries of the Halloween franchise as the latest installment is in cinemas. From Carpenter's classic to Rob Zombie's remakes, with Paul Rudd, Michelle Williams, and Busta Rhymes somewhere in the middle, the trio offer up the most varied lists The Forum has yet to feature. Hey, an Actor is referenced to demonstrate why Pandy Wilson was not invited to appear, whilst alternate versions of certain films are discussed, Ian notes why Rob Zombie is significant to his Flickchart, and one particular host makes a vastly baffling choice.

  15. After 10 years and 178 episodes, Animezing Podcast was down to only one remaining project to complete. Today, with Kellen Scrivens and James Trenchard's review of the tenth and final episode of the Hellsing Ultimate OVA, that project is completed. Join the two longtime friends as they finish up a tale of vampires killing Nazi's while reminiscing about the last 10 years of life, podcasts, and the evolution of animation in that time. Thank you, one and all. [ 1:12:10 || 34.7 MB ]

     


  16. Ian and Dave cover another two episodes of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Painkillers," Jeff and Jeanie are sent undercover by the government to investigate the enigmatic Colonel Anger who has discovered a pain delaying drug that Wyvern says could cause chaos for the spirit world. In "Marshall and Snellgrove," Jeff and Jeanie get a high paying case but discover that their client's brother has hired the rival detectives who work in their building. When one of their rivals is killed, Marty must help him avoid the spectral authorities until they can solve his murder. They also discuss subgenres of Buckaroo and discovery why Dave is podcasting from his bed. [ 2:02:48 || 89.9 MB ]

     


  17. It's all of our favorite holiday season, so my Halloween gift to Duane is that we're reviewing an anthology film together. An anthology film based on holidays called Holidays. Get it? And that's not all! Rich the Monster Movie Kid finishes The Bloodthirsty Trilogy with a review of The Evil of Dracula. How about some holiday carols? "Halloween" by Mastodon, "Holiday" by Duff McKagan, "Nosferatu" by Electric Food, and "Halloween (Video Edit)" by Helloween. [ 1:14:56 || 36.2 MB ]

     


  18. A PPV from Manchester, England and the first ever weekly TV show to emanate live from the World's Most Famous Arena are the highlights of Week 38 of A Cure for the Common Podcast. The dos and don'ts of how to handle a popular wrestler's homecoming, the match Bret Hart has deemed his last great WWF contest, the continuation of the worst tournament in the history of professional wrestling, and something about Vince McMahon and Steve Austin you might have heard about are all covered this week. [ 4:45:23 || 137.1 MB ]

     


  19. 'Tis the season to be spooky, and Skyler Queen and Will Ackerman are ready to celebrate by looking at a classic 1990s slasher movie: Scream! Along the way they discuss queer-coding in horror movies, some killer fashion, and why some rules are made to be broken. [ 2:58:25 || 86.8 MB ]

     


  20. As of this writing, Halloween (2018) has netted over $100 million in its opening week. On a budget estimated to be no more than $15 million, the $85 million gross all but guarantees a sequel will be in the works before you finish reading this sentence. But what it also guarantees are more continuations of horror franchises from the 1970s and 80s. Not remakes, mind you. We've already had remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street, which went nowhere as a fresh franchise. Friday the 13th, which was a rather solid Jason movie, also failed to spawn a new series of movies. And Halloween itself had the two Rob Zombie movies, but that remake series seems to be dead now. What we're talking about here are continuations of the original movies. While that might seem like a cynical takeaway, Hollywood is well-known for not being able to resist a trend. Or, starting one when they see the potential to make money hand over fist. Considering how little money it takes to make a horror movie, the financial investment is hardly a risk, so you can't really blame them.

     


  21. This week on Dread Media, a psychiatrist specializing in PTSD has her limits tested in Desmond and Tom's review of Clinical. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews the second film in The Bloodthirsty Trilogy: Lake of Dracula. Of course there are tunes: "A Masters in Reverse Psychology" by Murder by Death, "Therapy" by The Damned, "Mark of the Vampire" by The Coffinshakers, and "Shrink" by Dead Kennedys. [ 1:01:37 || 29.8 MB ]

     


  22. This week on Dread Media, Darryll and Desmond help Chuck Norris roundhouse kick Satanism in our review of the very regrettable Hellbound. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid classes the place up with his review of the first film in The Bloodthirsty Trilogy: The Vampire Doll. Of course, there are tunes to help us ring in the best season of all: "Little Demon" by The Chuck Norris Experience, "Hellbound" by Pantera, "Haunted" by Evanescence, and "Northern October" by The Northern Ontario Black Metal Preservation Society.
