  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. This week on Dread Media, close relations go to a secluded place and terrible stuff happens. It's exactly what you think it is, but with a twist! First, Desmond and Duane review the bizarre, emotionally driven cult film The Invitation. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid discusses a cabin getaway gone wrong in the brand new monster film Exposure. There are some songs too: "Dead With My Friends" by Iron Reagan, "All My Friends Are Dead" by Turbonegro, "Animal I Have Become" by Three Days Grace, and "Beastland" by Author & Punisher.

  4. Shawn goes into business for himself, Bret verges on losing his professional edge, Taker is trapped in a steel cage of his own making, and Austin is doing Looney Tunes skits with King. And the Pillman storyline is messed up. What can save us this week? Any wrestler under 200 pounds. Have fun with this as we discuss whether we had fun with this! [ 2:23:34 || 69.0 MB ]

     


  5. Having garnered feedback as to which Hollywood actors the podcast community would be uncomfortable with The Brothers Wilson tackling, this episode sees our hosts cover the people's choice from the previous Tomlinson awards: the decidedly unproblematic Tom Cruise! Always mindful of the podcast's legal budget, this episode covers the respectable Michael Mann crime thriller Collateral; the film Ian forgets he's reviewing by the end in Top Gun; and the film for which Pandy reveals far too much about himself in the quest for the perfect review, which is Eyes Wide Shut. Also on the docket is a frankly shocking Harvey Keitel impression, thoughts on James Nesbitt's film career, inspirations for Wilson baby names, and the fundamental debate as to whether Stanley Kubrick is, in fact, rubbish. Finally, our hosts put up the 2019 future of the podcast to a vote. What say you, listeners? [ 2:57:29 || 85.1 MB ]

     


  6. It's been 34 years in the making, but our old friend Greg Lamberson has finally been able to make his 1980s heavy metal horror film, Johnny Gruesome. It's out in two weeks and he's already completed filming on another film: Widow's Point, an adaptation of Richard and Billy Chizmar's novella of the same name. He's here to chat about the making of both films. Bookmarking our conversation is a trio of gruesome tunes: "A Gruesome Time" by Mercyful Fate, "Gruesome" by Dean and Giasone Italiano, and "Gruesome" by Gruesome. [ 1:08:24 || 33.1 MB ]

     


  7. The guys discuss the forthcoming Star Trek: Short Treks micro-series, the return of Jean-Luc Picard, the awesomeness of Harry Mudd, and the possible loss of Chris Pine as Captain Kirk. Then Kirk and the crew are shrunk in an effort to gain their attention ("The Terratin Incident"), they're trapped in a space Bermuda Triangle ("The Time Trap"), and turned into fish-people for reasons ("The Ambergris Element").

  8. This week on Dread Media, we thought we'd counter all the good news about the Catholic church that's come out lately by discussing brighter things. Well, not really. Lying is a sin. I should be careful with that. First, Tom Deja and Desmond have some very strong words for William Friedkin in their review of his recent documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. Then, in a review of a more believable film, Rich the Monster Movie Kid runs down The Conjuring series and its most recent iteration, The Nun. We've got some rosaries and Hail Marys for you as well: "I Don't Wanna Be No Catholic Boy" by Dead Boys, "The Exorcist" by The Hellacopters, "Heresy" by Nine Inch Nails, and "Catholic Blood" by Scott Kelly.

  9. Ian Wilson returns with the second instalment of The Flickchart Forum. Joined by guests Christian Honoré and Chris Johnson, the forum takes a look at the 10-film filmography of one of this generation's most interesting and successful directors: Christopher Nolan, who is British! Amongst the definitive Top 10 rundown based upon the trio's individual lists, and interesting descriptions of the Starship Enterprise, listen in to hear which host does Tom Wilkinson impressions, which host hates Leonardo DiCaprio, and which host actually likes Interstellar. It's Bane-on-a-plane entertainment! [ 2:04:07 || 61.7 MB ]

     


  10. Dave and Ian begin series two of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Whatever Possessed You," Jeff still has no memory of Marty being a ghost as he and Jeanie are called in to investigate a series of strange deaths in a hotel. Wyvern says that the time has come for Marty to reunite with Jeff, and together they face the spirits looking to escape the hotel. In "Revenge of the Bog People" an ex-partner of Jeff comes back into his life asking him to reopen the investigation into her missing father, and Marty is tasked with taming a wayward ghost called Nesbit. And in "O Happy Isle," Jeff and Jeanie investigate the death of a young man on a remote Scottish island and stumble across a conspiracy to control the planet's population. They also discuss the improvements in series two and welcome a guest appearance of one of Ian's favorite TABHAL actors. [ 2:24:41 || 70.0 MB ]

     


  11. School is back in session, but we're going abroad here at Dread Media. First up, Desmond and Duane review the anthology film of brutality and depravity from a country known for its brutal and depraved cinema: German Angst. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives a review of the haunting, beautiful, and erotic Belgian vampire film, The Daughters of Darkness. We've got an assortment of international tunes, too: "The Mandrake's Cry" by Danzig from the USA, "Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen" by Rammstein from Germany, "Vampyre Erotica" by Inkubus Sukkubus from Britain, and "Foreign Armies East" by Sleep of Monsters from Finland. [ 1:15:06 || 36.3 MB ]

     


  12. The guys are back to look at three episodes. Before that, though, they play catch-up with Doctor Who news, including trailers, The Doctor's new sonic, and the Twitch live-stream. Then it's all about a three-part story in which The Doctor finds himself trapped in virtual reality ("Extremis"), preventing World War III ("The Pyramid at the End of the World"), then saving the planet from alien overlords ("The Lie of the Land").

  13. This week on Dread Media, Desmond and Darryll get together for some drinks and some shuriken-throwing as they present a double feature of Sho Kosugi ninja films: Enter the Ninja and Revenge of the Ninja. There are wicked stunts, explosions, throwing stars embedded in foreheads, cocaine, bad acting, wet T-shirts, steely gazes, and men so virile they'll make you go through puberty twice! All that, plus songs: "Against the Ninja" by Dragon Sound, "Enter the Ninja" by Die Antwoord, "Revenge" by Black Flag, and "Shadow Warrior" by Blue Oyster Cult. [ 1:15:31 || 36.5 MB ]


  14. Summer is over, Ian has regained his editing duties, and Pandy is going back to work. What can possibly cheer up The Brothers Wilson and, by extension, the listeners of Hey, an Actor? Why, the delectable Salma Hayek, of course! Starting with her early crossover hit into American film with her female lead in Robert "RobRod" Rodriguez's sophomore trilogy entry Desperado. This episode also charts her Academy Award-nominated role as the titular star of Frida, and her latter career dramatic turn as the equally titular Beatriz at Dinner. Listen closely to find out in which film Hayek plays a Fembot, and which of our featured films works best as a Captain Planet prequel. Pandy also returns to his jingle-making excesses, the feedback section is almost entirely forgotten, and the hosts discuss the sexual eroticism of Alfred Molina. Happy autumn, everybody!

  15. To date we've examined how I would bring Star Trek back to television screens and cinemas. However, through CBS All Access, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube Premium, and other streaming services, the creative minds behind the Star Trek franchise have many more outlets to bring its fans new series, characters, and situations in which to explore the endless universe of Star Trek. Beyond the above-mentioned services, one must consider what type of content to place on these digital platforms. Though Discovery is doing well on CBS All Access, I'm not sure an ongoing, multi-season program is the right fit for these avenues. Rather, I would prefer to see new Star Trek shows in the mold of the original intent of Discovery: anthology series.

  16. This week on Dread Media, we get cult. First, two brothers return to the death cult they grew up in to seek answers in Darryll and Desmond's review of The Endless. Then, Desmond goes solo on reviews of the following books, tackling toxic fandom of cult heroes: I Am Providence by Nick Mamatas and Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk. Of course, we have one of the most eclectic line-ups of songs for this weird episode: "Cult" by Endless, "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Common People" by William Shatner, and "The Cult of 2112" by Perturbation.

  17. Though Star Trek has its roots in television, it is the rare franchise that has successfully crossed into movie theaters. Moreover, it did so using the same actors and continuity. Without a reboot or a single recasting, in 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture was released in cinemas. The only real changes were updated uniforms and a redesign of the iconic Enterprise. By transitioning from small to big screen, the characters, actors, filmmakers, and franchise were allowed to grow. It's great having 45 minutes to tell a story, but give creatives 90 minutes, two hours, or more of screen time and suddenly the characters have been infused with new life. They've grown in ways episodic television rarely allows.

  18. Since its debut in 1966, we've been graced with seven Star Trek television shows, 13 movies spanning two continuities, countless novels and short stories, a smattering of video games, and comic books across all major publishers. This has allowed Star Trek to cross into a multitude of genres and tackle different themes. From heists to family dramas, space action to coping with PTSD, ghost stories to coming-of-age tales. The vast Star Trek Universe provides an open-ended playground for any and all types of stories.

  19. This week on Dread Media, we say goodbye to one of the great heavy metal singers of the modern era: Jill Janus of Huntress. Then we dive into a themed episode based on aged action heroes from the 1980s and 90s in modern genre roles. The case study this week is Desmond and Tom's review of Dolph Lundgren as a demon-hunter in Don't Kill It. Then Desmond gives his Top 5 old guys killing it in modern genre films. Don't miss it. The music this week: "By Demons Be Driven" by Pantera, "Don't Kill the Vibe" by Ecstatic Vision, "Old Fangs" by Black Mountain, and "Sleep and Death" by Huntress. RIP Jill Janus.

  20.  This week on Dread Media, we focus on brand new releases. First up, Desmond and Tom logically process the new Netflix sci-fi release starring Gary Oldman as a house: TAU. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid returns to review the Orwellian Purge prequel, The First Purge. Only one of these songs could actually be considered new: "New Model No. 15" by Marilyn Manson, "The Big House" by Tau Cross, "Electric Eye" by Judas Priest, and "Purge the World" by Exodus.

  21. Published in 1964, Superboy Annual #1 reprinted some of The Boy of Steel's strangest adventures yet. Today, Dan and Mike are here to discuss the book entitled "An All-Star Collection of Stories featuring Superboy and his Super-Dog Krypto!" [ 1:34:40 || 48.6 MB ]
