  1. This week on Dread Media, we go back to basics and provide reviews of two films unconnected by any theme or connecting tissue of any kind.

Then, Desmond and his 12-year-old son, Cade, finish their look at the Americanized Japanese ghost series with their review of Rings. Of course, there's music: "Symbolic" by Death, "300 Rabbits" by Alejandro Jodorowsky, "I Am Rebirth" by Ancient VVisdom, and "El Topo" by Agoraphobic Nosebleed. [ 59:39 || 28.9 MB ]

  8. Ian and Dave convene at Ian's swinging bachelor pad to discuss another three episodes of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Paranoia," Jeff and Jeanie are hired by Douglas Milton, a man who has written a book of possibly shocking revelations because he believes someone wants to kill him and he is not wrong. In "A Blast from the Past," Marty graduates as a ghost and gains access to Limbo, but soon finds himself in danger from the ghost of a London gangster who wants revenge on Marty's dad. In "A Man of Substance," what begins as a missing person case in the sleepy village of Haydel Roxstead turns out to have major supernatural implications as everyone can see and hear Marty. They go to war with wasps, examine Marty's kill count, and are reunited with Roj Blake. [ 2:36:38 || 64.0 MB ]

  10. Did you know that James Franco starred in a movie last year about a haunted bank vault? Well now you do. This week Tom Deja and Desmond review The Vault for you. Then Desmond goes solo reviewing another anthology this week: The Horror Hall of Fame: The Stoker Winners, edited by Joe R Lansdale. This episode also includes perhaps the most eclectic mix of music to ever appear on the show: "The Vault" by Naked City, "Wasting My Time" by Boomkat, "Purina Hall of Fame" by Propagandhi, and "Money" by Mindless Self Indulgence. [ 56:34 || 27.4 MB ]

     


  11. The guys open the episode with some Star Trek: Discovery news, then they dive into three more episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series. First, the crew find themselves talking to The Devil ("The Magicks of Megas-tu"). Then they're attacked by a two-headed dragon ("Once Upon a Planet"). And lastly, Harry Mudd's return sparks HR issues for Kirk and his crew ("Mudd's Passion"). Please pardon the slight audio issues. [ 1:20:59 || 39.3 MB ]

     


  12. "What's the in the sky? Is it a spy? Is it a replicant? Is it a dolphin?" No, Peter. Calm down! It's everyone's favorite Dutch actor: Rutger Hauer! In episode 55 of Hey, an Actor! The Brothers Wilson really do go from the sublime (Blade Runner) to the ridiculous (Hobo with a Shotgun) via the WWII film (Soldier of Orange). As Ian and Pandy trot down Rutger Road they find all sorts of exciting nuggets of fun, including the joys of an intermission, Chad Kroeger, how one film reminds Pandy of a sobering Julius Caesar lesson, and Ian's latest parasites. Also, a fellow Earth-2.net contributor's previous treatment is revisited, another Earth-2.net contributor is (nearly) referenced by Colin Mochrie, and another Earth-2.net contributor is outed as the show's only Patreon supporter (despite this show not having Patreon).

  13. This week we celebrate all things zombie. We do so with two films form the continent of Australia and an American anthology. First, Darryll and Desmond review Peter Jackson's early effort of comedy gore: Dead Alive (AKA Braindead). Then, Desmond goes solo to review the book Nights of the Living Dead, edited by Jonathan Maberry and George A Romero. Finally, Tom Deja and Desmond take a look at the grim-dark, but hopeful, Australian zombie apocalypse film Cargo. Don't forget songs: "Drunken Zombies Killing Spree" by Space Chaser, "Braindead" by Zombina and the Skeletones, "Night of the Living Dead" by Michale Graves, "Suicide Carload (Drag that Weight)" by Woods of Ypres, and "Now I'm Feeling Zombified" by Alien Sex Fiend.

  14. This week's massive episode of Dread Media features an interview with our oldest friend: David Agranoff. In it, David and Desmond discuss the horrific circumstances leading to his brand new eco-horror / cli-fi novel, Ring of Fire, and comes clean about the last solo interview David did with us. Then, David sticks around to review and pitch a prequel novel to a film that he and Desmond have talked about for years: the great dragon apocalypse film Reign of Fire. All that and music: "World on Fire" by Corrosion of Conformity, "Inherit the Wasteland" by Earth Crisis, "Killing the Dragon" by Dio, and "The Dragon Flies" by Black Tower.

  15. For the first time in their long and illustrious partnership, Dave and Ian record together in the same room as they begin watching a new show: Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). In "Drop Dead," private detectives Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk are hired by an artist to protect his wife from herself, but when Marty is seemingly killed by her he comes back as a ghost, visible only to Jeff, in order to solve his own murder. In "Mental Apparition Disorder," Jeff is checked into a therapy center after telling Marty's finance, Jeanie, that Marty is a ghost. Meanwhile Marty is trained to be a ghost by the mysterious Mr. Wyvern. Finally, in "The Best Years of Your Death," Jeanie's nephew tells her something sinister is going on at his boarding school, so she and Jeff go undercover to discover the truth, and Wyvern teaches Marty possession. They make lots of Doctor Who connections, ask if Steven Berkov is locked in a cupboard, and Dave has an unfortunate chair incident. [ 2:00:32 || 39.1 MB ]

     


  16. This week on Dread Media, after paying tribute to a legend of comics, we look at cold-blooded monsters in film, from micro-budget amphibian sea-gods to huge blockbuster dinosaurs. First, Desmond and Duane look at the ancient sea-god meets urban graffiti artist film Soft Matter. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid runs down the Jurassic Park franchise before reviewing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. There are some cold-blooded tunes too: "Cold Blooded" by Tim Armstrong, "Fish On" by Lindemann, "Dinosaur Fire" by The Chuck Norris Experiment, and "Reptile" by Nine Inch Nails. RIP Steve Ditko.

  17. Jackie Chan is the featured actor for this very warm Pandy editing special, including the limited return of jingles! In this highly choreographed episode The Brothers Wilson marvel at Chan's out-of-type acting in the recent Netflix film The Foreigner, gasp at the sheer physicality and badly dated jokes in Police Story, and endure Chris Tucker's voice in Rush Hour. Also, questions that are answered include: What happened at friend-of-the-show Richard Paterson's stag do? Why is Jackie Chan the Prince of Gotham? Which supporting actor in one of the films is also a high-profile pornography star? And stay tuned for the end-of-show musical spectacular. [ 2:21:16 || 68.2 MB ]

     


  18. This week, Dread Media has the sad duty to pay tribute to the late, great genre writer Harlan Ellison. Who better to pay tribute to him with than Tom Deja? Together, Tom and Desmond talk a little bit about the man before reviewing the only major motion picture to be made of his work: A Boy and His Dog. Then, Desmond does a Dread media Top Five Favorite Harlan Ellison things. There are even songs about Harlan! "Run! Apocalypse! Run" by Ayreon, "Blood and Tears" by Danzig, "Harlan Ellison" by Bloodhag, and "Harlan" by The Jazz Butcher. RIP Harlan Ellison. [ 1:14:28 || 36.0 MB ]

     


  19. This week, we've got the weirdest theme ever: real estate horror. First up, a few weeks ago we heard Rich's review of this film, but Desmond and Tom Deja had to have a walk-through of the Netflix production The Open House. Then, a Dread Media Top Five of Real Estate Horror. Of course, tunes: "Your Glasshouse" by Atmosphere, "Rip Van Winkle" by Shannon and the Clams, "A House is Not a Motel" by The Hellacopters, and "Board Up the House" by Baroness. [ 1:04:23 || 31.1 MB ]

     


  20. This week on Dread Media, one of Desmond's new favorite authors, Jessica McHugh, stops by to talk about her brand new collection of bee-punk fiction Maiden Voyage and Other Departures, writing erotic horror, teaching writing, and bee puns. So. Many. Bee. Puns. Then, last week we talked about Brian Keene's GoFundMe for his burn fund as a way to help, and the Dread Media Top Five of books to buy to send Brian Keene royalties is continuing the trend. All this, and songs: "Birds, Bees and Disease" by Abolitionist, "The Bees" by Pentagram, "If You Can't Help Your Own" by Hank III, and "Slave the Hive" by High on Fire. [ 1:13:30 || 35.5 MB ]
