  1. This week on Dread Media, travel back to 1988 with us as we discuss two very different films. First, Desmond and Darryll take a look at Penelope Spheeris's look at the excesses of the Sunset Strip's sleazy glam scene in The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr.'s sleaze is a little more DIY in his review of Jim Van Bebber's Deadbeat at Dawn. Songs included: "Bathroom Wall" by Faster Pussycat, "In My Darkest Hour" by Megadeth, "Safety Week" by Electric Eels, and "Eighties" by Killing Joke. [ 1:25:02 || 41.9 MB ]


  2. In an The Show first, we dedicate an entire episode to wrestling! Dave and Mike sat down for well over three hours to discuss the superb NXT TakeOver: New York card, and the feel-good show that was WrestleMania 35! Personal backstories with wrestling are discussed, as are the in-ring storylines, Randy Orton's ability to hit the RKO out of nowhere, and the future stars that are Johnny Gargano, Kofi Kingston, and Becky Lynch!

  3. This week on Dread Media, it's a classic double feature review of two films that have nothing to do with each other. But first, the announcement of an upcoming Ask Me Anything episode of Dread Media. Then, an assassin finds that retirement isn't quite what it was chalked up to be in Des and Tom's review of Polar. Then, a bunch of people are trapped in a Spanish bar in the midst of some kind of plague in Duane and Des's review of The Bar. There are also tunes: "Better Off Dead" by Polar Bear Club, "Your Ontario Town is a Burial Ground" by Woods of Ypres, "The Bars" by Black Flag, and "Plagueborne" by Cattle Decapitation.

  4. This week on Dread Media, our old friend Greg Lamberson stops by to talk about his latest film (Johnny Gruesome), his recently finished film (Widow's Point), and the late great Larry Cohen. Speaking of Cohen, Tom Deja comes by to review a Cohen classic: The Stuff. There are songs too: "Closed Coffin" by Gruesome, "Widowmaker" by The Black Dahlia Murder, "(Do You) Want Some of This?" by The Stuff, and "Titan" by Ancient Ascendant. [ 1:09:57 || 33.8 MB ]


  5. This week on Dread Media, Desmond steps aside to let guest host Derek M Koch of Monster Kid Radio interview Christine Parker, the director of the brand new movie Blood of the Mummy. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes on the most talked about horror film of the year thus far: Us. Songs: "Can't Stop the Monster Kids" by The Other, "Mummy Dust" by Ghost, "The Mirror" by Dream Evil, and "I Got 5 on Us" by Luniz featuring Damon Elliott and Krayzie Bone. [ 1:13:17 || 35.4 MB ]


  6. Dave and Ian cover another three episodes of Firefly. In "Our Mrs. Reynolds" the crew of Serenity defends a settlement from bandits, and after their work is done Mal discovers that he has been given a wife in lieu of payment who may be more than she appears. In "Jaynestown" a simple smuggling job becomes more complicated when the crew realizes the town they are planning to sneak the goods through idolizes Janye as a folk hero. In "Out of Gas" Serenity becomes stranded when a part malfunctions, and while Mal struggles to stay alive / repair the ship he recalls how he met each of his crew. They muse on character introductions, enjoy Robin Hood parallels, and Ian develops The Probert Test. [ 1:58:33 || 59.5 MB ]


  7. After the slow-moving visual spectacle that was Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the guys spend nearly three hours gushing over the epic that is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Themes of life, death, aging, and rebirth are explored, as are thoughts of space-flutes and keytars. (Note: Guard your ears at 1:53:28.) [ 2:59:55 || 86.8 MB ]


  8. The Year of the Rings continues on Hey, an Actor! with our other Hobbit protagonist in the spotlight: Elijah Wood. The Fellowship of the Ring is our featured presentation, whilst Netflix hit I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore is championed by Pandy, and North is submitted by Ian as a mean of highlighting famous bad reviews. Other topics of discussion include the merits of CBeebies programming, fake political ministries in New Zealand, and the medium of reviewing via claps. Also, do The Brothers Wilson read at leisure?

  9. Not one, but two fantastic matches on Raw is War as Taka Michinoku takes on Yoshihiro Tajiri and Shawn Michaels and Owen Hart go one-on-one in a Winner Takes All match for the Intercontinental and European Championships. The Road Dogg and Billy Gunn have their first two proper matches as a tag team, and Jeff Jarrett makes his re-debut with the WWF and promptly (and repeatedly) buries himself on a live mic. [ 2:20:30 || 67.5 MB ]


  10. This week on Dread Media, we're getting weird! So, I guess it's just the norm. First up, Tom and Desmond review the Canadian period piece / fantasy / horror / comedy / musical featuring Peter Stormare: Bang Bang Baby. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. returns to talk about the 80s Italian slasher Madhouse. It's pretty great. And there are songs: "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me)" by Murder By Death, "What's Inside a Girl?" by The Cramps, "Kissing Families (live)" by Silversun Pickups, and "Sadistic Rituals" by Venom Prison. [ 1:09:11 || 33.4 MB ]


  11. Four years ago, Mike discovered the awesomely meta, sadly underrated movie Spice World. Now, as his patron-request, Pandy asked Mike to cover it on The Show. With Ian. So that's what the guys are here to do today. Strap in for unconditional Spice World love, brotherly rivalries filtered through this podcast, and revelations about pajamas. [ 1:46:25 || 52.6 MB ]


  12. 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. [ 1:56:40 || 56.2 MB ]


  13. 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. [ 1:29:53 || 43.4 MB ]


  14. 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 ]


  15. 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. [ 2:15:15 || 67.6 MB ]


  16. 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 ]


  17. 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. [ 1:00:52 || 29.4 MB ]


  18. 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. [ 2:03:36 || 46.8 MB ]


  19. 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 ]
