  1. This week on Dread Media, an old favorite of ours stars in the first two instalments of what just might be the modern era's best action franchise. Of course I'm talking about Keanu "Canoe" Reeves and his turns in John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2. In this episode, my friend Sezin Koehler and I deep-dive into the films with wild fan theories and praise and just plain enjoyment. Nerd out with us! There are, of course, songs too: "Killing Strangers" by Marilyn Manson, "Worth Fighting For" by Judas Priest, "The Realms of Baba Yaga" by Edguy, and "Plastic Heart" by Nostalghia.

  2. This week on Dread Media, we present an interview with the lively but concussed author / editor / podcaster Max Booth as we discuss his novel, Carnivorous Lunar Activities, as well as a bunch of other nonsense. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews Web of the Spider. Finally, Duane joins Desmond to review the Dutch apocalyptic film Molly. Songs included: "Werewolf Gimmick" by The Mountain Goats, "Moon Crazy" by Blue Oyster Cult, "Castle of Blood" by Skiller, "Apocalypse Girl" by The Humpers, and "They Always Come Back" by Misery Index.

  3. Dave joins Dan and Mike to discuss all things Buck Rogers. First they look at the 1939 serial starring Buster Crabbe, then they have a beat-by-beat chat about the 1979 feature-length pilot of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. [ 2:12:05 || 63.9 MB ]

  5. After a soft launch a few weeks back, we finally see Jesse Jammes and Rockabilly change names and form a tag team on Shotgun. (One name sticks, one is quickly forgotten.) Meanwhile on Raw, Shawn Michaels and friends take another crack at naming their little group. Wonder if it sticks this time. All this excitement, the merciful end of Sable's Laser Tag advertisements, and Kellen marking out over another fighting game in the ad breaks. [ 2:13:25 || 109.0 MB ]

     


  6. This week, weird nature runs amok. First up, Desmond and Duane take a look at the toxic frogs of Minnesota in the final film of late actress Lisa Sheridan: Strange Nature. RIP Lisa! Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid returns in a colossal fashion! A colossal rabbit fashion, anyway. He reviews Night of the Lepus for us. Of course, there are tunes: "Don't Feed the Animals" by Shooter Jennings and Hierophant, "Frogstar" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, "White Rabbit" by Sanctuary, and "Nature's Predator" by Kylesa.

  7. Ian and Dave continue to make their way through Firefly. In "Bushwacked," the crew of Serenity stumbles across a derelict ship that has been attacked by Reavers. Their salvage operation is interrupted by a lone survivor and an Alliance cruiser. In "Shindig," Mal has to negotiate his way through high society in order to strike a deal to smuggle cargo, and finds himself in a fencing duel to the death with one of Inara's clients. And in "Safe" the crew deliver their cargo, but Book is shot when the deal goes south and Simon and River are kidnapped by a village that needs a doctor. Ian continues to struggle with names, Dave disagrees with Wikipedia over what the Tam's father should be called, and they receive feedback from the Orgs with a difference.

  8. This month, The Brothers Wilson take on a fellow countryman who is a known supporting character actor whose eligibility for an episode is very much boosted by The Year of the Rings: Sean Bean. Ian is introduced to the Bechdel Test-endorsed video game adaptation Silent Hill. Whilst Pandy takes in an equally cheery film about plague-ridden England in the Middle Ages, and the quest to unearth a necromancer with a young Eddie Redmayne entitled Black Death. Finally, the podcast reviews an early role in which our subject plays a vengeful IRA terrorist relentlessly pursuing Harrison Ford's Jack Ryan in Patriot Games. On top of this, the episode contains discussion about video games being brought to the screen, Ian's inability to pronounce the most famous animated lion role portrayed by James Earl Jones, and Pandy's demented obsession with animated pre-school YouTube star Bob the Train. Choo-choo, melon farmers! [ 3:08:26 || 90.8 MB ]

     


  9. Recently on The Edge of Forever, Dan and Mike's Star Trek podcast, Dave Probert joined the guys to discuss Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And that's what you're going to hear today. In an effort to get more ears on The Edge of Forever, Mike has repackaged episode 47 of The Edge of Forever as episode 1049 of Earth-2.net: The Show. Also: Stick around to the absolute end of the show for a six-minute teaser for episode 1050. [ 2:37:50 || 77.2 MB ]

     


  10. It's the 600th straight week of Dread Media! And we're ringing in the occasion with our friend Tom Deja as we run down all five films in the Prophecy series: The Prophecy, The Prophecy II, The Prophecy 3: The Ascent, The Prophecy: Uprising, and The Prophecy: Forsaken. Listen in as Desmond man-crushes on Viggo Mortensen, the merits of Christopher Walken are discussed, and the very serious repercussions of picking up a dead series and shooting two sequels in eastern Europe over a long weekend. All that and songs: "Rise Fallen Angel" by Ancient VVisdom, "Lucifer" by Jay Z, "Son of the Morning Star" by Danzig, "Blow Your Trumpets, Gabriel" by Behemoth, "Forsaken" by Kylesa, and "Angel" by Belly.

  11. This week on Dread Media, let's get weird! First Darryll and Desmond finally take a look at Takashi Miike's bizarro crime drama freak out: Gozu. Then, Tom Deja stops in to pay tribute to the late, great Albert Finney with his review of Looker. Tunes: "Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out" by Melvins Lite, "Forced Gender Reassignment" by Cattle Decapitation, "Looker" by Sue Saad, and "When a Blind Man Cries (live)" by Metallica. [ 1:08:15 || 33.6 MB ]

     


  12. It's a Peanuts Valentine Retrospective, Charlie Brown! Skyler and Will celebrate Valentine's Day by discussing four Peanuts specials that have more than a bit of melancholy. Along the way, they find much to admire about one member of the cast, discuss a special focusing on a character you wouldn't expect, and realize the true versatility of spray cans. [ 1:18:15 || 39.7 MB ]

     


  13. This week on Dread Media, once again we talk to Darren Lynn Bousman of Saw sequel fame. This time we discuss his brand new nunsploitation film St. Agatha, and his augmented reality game / narrative. Then, Duane and Desmond review the meta-narrative German revenge / urban fantasy / dystopian film Snowflake. Songs included: "Nuns Gave No Fun" by Mercyful Fate, "Tension Head" by Queens of the Stone Age, "Angel" by Devin Townsend Project, and "Tension" by Killing Joke. [ 1:05:47 || 31.8 MB ]

     


  14. Today you are in for an absolute treat, as Dan and Mike are here to discuss not one but two Fantastic Four movies. Which ones you ask? The unreleased 1994 version (AKA Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four) and the big-budget 2005 version starring Chris Evans, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, and Ioan Gruffudd. [ 1:38:10 || 49.2 MB ]

     


  15. This week on Dread Media, after saying goodbye to Rigor Mortis vocalist Bruce Corbitt and legendary character actor Dick Miller, we dive back into horror after a month of action movies. First up, Darryll and Desmond take a look at the meta-meta-meta-horror film The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014). Then, Tom Deja comes by again to review the Groundhog Day-esque horror film Happy Death Day. Tunes: "Demons" by Rigor Mortis, "Phantom Killer Attack" by FKU, "Can't Repeat" by The Offspring, and "Love the Ones You Hate" by A Pale Horse Named Death. [ 1:05:46 || 31.8 MB ]

     


  16. The Brothers Wilson kick off 2019 (AKA The Year of the Rings) by looking at young Bilbo himself: Martin Freeman. Pandy gets to experience horror anthology Ghost Stories for the first time, whereas Ian is introduced to the lore of Douglas Adams through the film version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. And the Tolkien vibe is thoroughly kicked off as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (AKA Hobbit #1) is covered. The episode also identifies the next Daniel Day-Lewis, Pandy re-opens his film-reviewing wounds regarding Halloween, and the word "spines" is bandied around for the horror genre. Do listen! [ 2:46:41 || 80.4 MB ]

     


  17. Dave and Ian kick off 2019 with a new show: Joss Whedon's Firefly. In "Serenity," Captain Malcolm Reynolds and the crew of his ship, Serenity, struggle to scrape a living. After they are nearly caught while pulling an illegal salvage operation, Mal is forced to trade the goods on a remote moon with someone who shot him last time they met. Things are made even more complex when several of the ship's passengers turn out to be more than they seem. In "The Train Job," Mal agrees to pull a heist for a very dangerous gangster, but after having pulled it off finds that he can't handover the goods because it's much-needed medication. They also commit to making the character of Jayne sound more British, and Ian finds himself unable to distinguish between River Tam and Summer Glau. [ 2:17:11 || 69.2 MB ]

     


  18. We say goodbye to Action January with a double feature of reviews that cover films that look at the hunting of humans. Desmond and Tom first take a look at John Woo's Netflix debut: Manhunt. Then, because things weren't really good, they take a look at Brian Trenchard-Smith's Ozploitation classic Turkey Shoot. Also, there are songs: "On the Run" by Cerebral Ballzy, "Fugitive" by Halford, "Model Citizen" by Warren Zevon, and "Tyranny of the Hunt" by Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains. [ 1:19:32 || 38.4 MB ]

     


  19. The Edge of Forever enters a new era as Dave Probert joins Dan and Mike for a discussion of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Does this movie deserve its reputation as "The Motionless Picture" / "The Slow Motion Picture," or is it a technical masterpiece in disguise? Can it be both? Please "sit down" with the three guys as they discuss this very topic and so much more! Also: Stick around through the closing theme for a tease of what's to come between Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. [ 2:31:15 || 73.0 MB ]

     


  20. Christian and guest host Andy Poulastides of The Great Derelict seek out strange new acronyms, voyage around undesired sequels, and discover the sole entry of the Friends Cinematic Universe as they dissect their favorite good, evil, and neutral artificially intelligent beings. [ 1:59:20 || 58.7 MB ]

     


  21. This week on Dread Media, we have a real treat for you. For possibly the first time in the history of the show, we present a feature review that doesn't have Desmond in it. But Desmond is ridiculously proud to present a Roadkill Review of M. Night Shyamalan's Glass by the hosts of one of his all-time favorite movie podcast hosts: Derrick Ferguson and Tom Deja. Don't fear, Desmond comes back to review Intensive Care with Duane, where they discuss how the movie is like a Steven Seagal film starring a woman who is a private care nurse. Just go with us here. Finally, as if that wasn't enough, Tom comes back to review the Soska Twins' second foray into WWE-produced films: Vendetta. All that, and there are songs: "Steel and Glass" by Candlebox, "The Nurse Who Loved Me" by A Perfect Circle, "Exploitation" by Night Nurse, "Do As I Say" by Prison Book Club, and "Fight" by Early Man. [ 1:23:14 || 40.9 MB ]

     


  22. Donovan Morgan Grant joins Mike to discuss Batgirl: Year One, Barbara Gordon's amazingly retold origin story from 2003. Before that, however, the two touch upon Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, as well as Donovan's recent viral tweet. For the latest episode of Questions: We Don't Have Answers, follow this link. [ 1:41:55 || 50.6 MB ]

     


  23. This week on Dread Media, action month continues as Desmond and Tom discuss the Belgian homage to Italian Westerns and poliziottesco films: Let the Corpses Tan. But it is bookended first by Desmond reviewing and then giving away a copy of Halloween (2018) to one lucky Facebook Group member, and a story of real-life road rage that almost led to bloodshed just this weekend. There are songs: "Halloween Theme" by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies; "Shootout" by Murder By Death; and "Buenas Tardes Amigo" by Ween. [ 1:03:48 || 31.7 MB ]

     


  24. Mike opens the show by delivering a plethora of thank yous, then he and Dan look at the two Mark Hamill episodes of The Flash (1990): "The Trickster" and "The Trial of the Trickster." They also briefly (and without spoilers) discuss the recent "Elseworlds" crossover on Supergirl, Green Arrow, and The Flash (2014). [ 1:01:35 || 31.4 MB ]
