  1. This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Duane pick apart the sort-of anthology film Ghost Stories. Then, Tom Deja reviews Chan-wook Park's Thirst. All that, plus some choice tunes: "My Head Is Full of Ghosts" by Bad Religion, "Ghost Story" by Monster Magnet, "Love Like Blood" by Killing Joke, and "Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones" by Machine Head.

  2. This week on Dread Media, Thomas and Desmond travel back through the Julian Sands of time to the early 90s to discuss a mostly forgotten franchise: the Warlock films. Warlock, Warlock: Armageddon, and Warlock III: End of Innocence all get reviews. Some witchy tunes to guide the way: "Ill Wind" by Jerry Goldsmith, "Warlock" by John Zorn, "Armageddon Blues" by Power Trip, "Innocence" by Vesania, and "Kiss of Death" by Warlock.

  3. This week on Dread Media, we get a little wacky. First up, Tom Deja joins Desmond to discuss the regrettable Blackenstein: The Black Frankenstein (in case you didn't get that from the first part of the title). Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid jumps in to review Blood Harvest, a horror film featuring Tiny Tim. I know. Weird, right? And of course there are tunes: "Frankenstein: I'm Dead Alive" by Early Man, "Fix Me Now" by Garbage, "Through the Tulips" by Dilinger feat. Jon Anderson, and "Lacerated Psyche" by Lord Dying.

  4. This month, The Brothers Wilson meet the summer heat with a subject with the coolest eyes in all of Hollywood, as Hot Fuzz will prove. Cate Blanchett is duly in the spotlight, with a selection of roles portraying real-life figures, ranging from Queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth to Katherine Hepburn in Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator, and as evil Dana Scully in globetrotting action drama Hanna. Along the way there's The Oscar Game, Pandy's Tudor facts, odes to Ponyo, and a hugely random Disney song. Also, Ian surprises Pandy with his knowledge of BioShock, and just how do you pronounce Saoirse Ronan's name? [ 3:00:55 || 87.2 MB ]

     


  5. Get behind the wheel and go this week, as we visit two weird road-based films. First up, Darryll and Desmond dig into the bizarre David Lynch film Lost Highway. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes 1977's The Car for a spin. Turn on the radio and listen for these: "Dub Driving" by Angelo Badalamenti, "I'm Deranged (Edit)" by David Bowie, "Arrested for Driving While Blind" by ZZ Top, and "Something Wicked This Way Comes (Edit)" by Barry Adamson.

  6. This week, Adam and Jeff return with new recruit Scot to help Desmond answer questions like "Why's it burnt?" and whether or "not the bees" as they dig into the cinematic trashterpiece, the 2006 remake of The Wicker Man. Then, Tom Deja pays tribute to the late great Rutger Hauer in his review of Blind Fury. Of course, there are songs: "Sacrifice Theory" by AFI., "The Wicker Man" by Iron Maiden, "By the Sword" by Slash featuring Andrew Stockdale, and "Why Do You Want to Live Anyway?" by Total Wolf. [ 1:03:37 || 30.8 MB ]

     


  7. This week Desmond and Tom Deja have a frank discussion about mental health and its portrayal in genre cinema through their review of an unlikely film: The Voices. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews The Limehouse Golem. Songs included: "Voices" by Sturgill Simpson, "The Fox" by Black Ingvars, "Golem" by The Maladies, and "Mirror Reflection & The Hammer Reinvention" by Woods of Ypres. [ 1:10:32 || 34.1 MB ]

     


  8. This week on Dread Media, we welcome director Timo Vuorensola to talk about the sequel to his 2012 film Iron Sky: Iron Sky: The Coming Race. We talk about the weather, weird conspiracy theories people tell, and how Tom Green and Udo Kier got along on set. Then, Desmond and Tom go underground with their review of the teen horror comedy Slaughterhouse Rulez. Songs: "In the Craters on the Moon" by The Mountain Goats, "Born Under a Hollow Moon" by Doublestone, "Tick Tick Boom" by The Hives, and "Subterranea" by Tribulation. [ 1:04:33 || 31.2 MB ]

     


  9. This week on Dread Media, venture back to Desmond's teenagehood, or just see what it was like as Duane and Des review the wonderful Boys in the Trees. Then, stick around for something Desmond might have liked in his teenage years as he reviews Rondo. Songs included: "Drowning in a Daydream" by Corrosion of Conformity, "1996" by Marilyn Manson, "Blood Sisters" by Huntress, and "Alive and Screaming" by Death Angel. [ 53:02 || 25.7 MB ]

     


  10. We all know that the odd-numbered Star Trek film are trash, right? Not so much, actually. While Star Trek III: The Search for Spock might not be the most exciting Trek film ever made, it does introduce Christopher Lloyd as the ruthless Klingon Commander Kruge, lays groundwork for future films, and sees the destruction of the beloved Enterprise. It also begs some hard-to-discuss questions pertaining to the resurrection of Spock, and demonstrates some shameful password etiquette. Please listen in as Dan, Dave, and Mike have a blast creating The Spock File, and singing their way through the discussion. [ 2:52:55 || 83.5 MB ]

     


  11. Departing briefly from earthly geeky subjects to heavenly nerdy ones, Christian and guest host Mixie Plum assemble a pantheon of their favorite gods and depictions of deities, as well as chronicle the gravest acts of divine douchiness. [ 1:32:45 || 46.9 MB ]

     


  12. This week on Dread Media, Desmond welcomes Tom Deja to discuss the two films in the Dr. Phibes series (The Abominable Dr. Phibes and Dr. Phibes Rises Again), as well as all the Dr. Phibes films that weren't. On top of that, we've got tunes: "War March of the Priests" by Basil Kirchin, "Abominable Dr. Phibes" and "Dr. Phibes Rises Again (Demo)" by The Misfits, and "My Sky" by Tengger Calvary. RIP Nature Ganganbaigal. [ 1:18:48 || 38.0 MB ]

     


  13. An episode of Hey, an Actor that has been three-plus years in the making, The Brothers Wilson are able to use The Year of the Rings to finally talk about the crown prince of motion-capture: Andy Serkis. The coverage of The Lord of the Rings is picked up with the full debut of Smeagol / Gollum in The Two Towers, whilst further mo-cap is covered in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin. And without the digital effects, we also cover Serkis' portrayal of English rocker Ian Dury in his biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. Along the way, discover amazing things brought up in conversation, such as trees not having lungs, overrated British sitcoms, and new HAA character Pandywise the Dancing Clown. The episode also sees the debuts of the Hey, an Actor caption competition and one Lincoln "Link" Wilson. [ 3:25:13 || 98.9 MB ]

     


  14. Remember that time Darryll and I got really drunk and reviewed Creepshow 2? I don't. But there was digital audio evidence, and that's what this week's episode is. So, watch out for those cigar store Indians, be suspicious of black garbage bags in lakes, look both ways before crossing the street, and enjoy this week's episode! We also give away two copies of Us on Blu-ray. Tunes: "The Fate Before Fate" by Indian, "Get What's Coming" by Creepshow, and "Jaws Theme Swimming" by Brand New. [ 1:18:48 || 38.0 MB ]

     


  15. This week on Dread Media, we take a look at a slate of 2019 horror films. First up, Desmond goes solo on a review of Us (and offers a giveaway of said film). Then, Tom Deja reviews the brand new Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Finally, Tom and Des team up on a review of The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot. Songs included: "Down the Rabbit Hole" by Michael Abels, "I Got 5 On It (Tethered mix from Us feat. Michael Marshall)" by Luniz, "Godzilla (feat. Serj Tankian)" by Bear McCreary, "Bigfoot" by The Worth, and "Them and Us" by Bad Religion. [ 1:10:43 || 34.2 MB ]

     


  16. This week on Dread Media, day drink with us and discover the differences between Monster Movies and Monsta Movies as the Alpha and Omega of an unsung horror franchise are reviewed. First, Darryll and Desmond are pretty sure they would have enjoyed Tremors even if they didn't start drinking before noon. Then, Tom stops by to help Des come to grips with the fact that he really likes the latest entry in the series: Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell. Here are your tremor-tunes: "Worms of the Earth" by Crom, "Tremor" by Converge, "Tundra Leach" by Darkthrone, and "Earthworm" by Clutch. [ 1:18:48 || 38.0 MB ]

     


  17. This week on Dread Media, Darryll and Desmond review the sleazy and bizarre Italian zombie film Burial Ground. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blood Feast. Then, tunes: "I Walked with a Zombie" by Roky Erickson & The Aliens, "Burial Ground" by FKU, "Bloodfeast" by The Misfits, and "The Wind and More" by Roky Erickson & The Explosives.

  18. The people voted! As such, the fifth instalment of The Year of the Rings on Hey, an Actor is to feature fiction's favorite gardener: Sean Astin. The Brothers Wilson chart their featured actor's pre-Samwise career from his child star hit The Goonies through to cult 90s hit Encino Man to, well, Icebreaker. The coverage hits upon important subjects, such as the career trajectory of Bruce Campbell, the cult of Andy's Friends, and two Englishmen's views on Pauly Shore. We also discover which film is to Ian what Halloween is to Pandy. [ 2:37:39 || 76.0 MB ]

     


  19. Dave and Ian conclude their re-watch of Firefly. In "The Message," Mal and Zoe are sent the corpse of an old war comrade that isn't as dead as he first appears to be. In "Heart of Gold" an old friend of Inara's asks for help to protect one of her employees from a local landowner. And, in "Objects in Space," as the crew debate as to the best course of action to deal with an increasingly erratic River, Serenity is infiltrated by a bounty hunter looking to take in the Tams. They go on to discuss the series as a whole, and outline their plans for the next few months as they take a little summer break. Trigger Warning: Due to the events depicted in these episodes, there is an unavoidable discussion on threats of sexual violence as a storytelling device. [ 2:31:44 || 69.0 MB ]

     


  20. Thanks to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Thanos has proven himself to be one of cinema's deadliest villains. However, nothing compares to his comic book self, especially his assault on the universe as seen in the epic six-issue miniseries The Infinity Gauntlet. With that in mind, strap in, 'cause Dan and Mike are about to discuss The Mad Titan's original reign of terror! [ 1:25:35 || 43.5 MB ]
