  2. This week, Dread Media gets a little sexy and a little funny by servicing a rarely made and even more rarely publicized sub-sub-genre: genre sex comedy. First, Darryll and Desmond take a look at the recent film from Bandit Motion Pictures: Space Babes from Outer Space. Then Desmond provides his Dread Media Top Five genre sex comedies, which turned out to be a lot harder than he thought. Innuendo! Songs included: "Love Tyger" by Edguy, "Sexy Space Bitches" by Accidente and "Sex Kittens Go to College" by The Browns. [ 1:01:19 || 29.7 MB ]


  3. Only 498 episodes late for episode 500, Hey, Gurlfriend returns with Hannah, Will, and special straight male guest Chris Johnson discussing Smallville! Episodes are discussed, one of the original cast is reviled, and rants occur. So many rants. Longingly look at that cape in your closet for 10 years and take a listen. [ 3:14:23 || 95.5 MB ]


  4. Desmond can't decide whether the two films covered this week are similar or very different. First Duane joins him to review the latest Full Moon film: Puppet Master: Axis Termination. Then, in a Dread Media first, a Dread Reel-Ief segment hits the main show as Ian joins him to review The Return of Swamp Thing. Of course, there are appropriate (or inappropriate) songs to accompany these reviews: "Principle of Puppet Warfare" by Wormrot, "Hell's Handpuppet" by Broken Hope, "Born on the Bayou" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and "John Carpenter Powder Ballad" by Turbonegro. [ 1:04:59 || 31.4 MB ]


  5. As episode 1000 approaches, Dave and Mike debut a new segment in which they each examine television programs from their respective lands that the other has never seen. In this first installment, Mike introduces Dave to Gilligan's Island, then Dave introduces Mike to Rentaghost. They also discuss the horrors British children were subjected to on television, which leads to a live / stunned reaction by Mike. [ 1:23:50 || 42.3 MB ]


  6. This week, Dread Media welcomes you to come with them to descend into a podcast underworld from which you may never return. First, the loss of a father leads family members to explore the netherworld of the seemingly supernatural board game Beyond the Gates. Then, the search for justice becomes the struggle for survival as Turkish police officers accidentally stumble through a doorway to Hell in a Stay Scary of Baskin. There are songs to take with you on your journey: "Roll the Dice" by Panzer, "A Game We Shouldn't Play" by Helloween, "Anne Ve Babanın Ölümü" by Ulaş Pakkan, and "Descent into the Maelstrom" by Holy Grail. Don't forget to email for the chance to win a Blu-ray of Don't Torture a Duckling. [ 1:08:42 || 33.2 MB ]


  7. Hey, an Actor! kicks off a new themed year! Once more, The Brothers Wilson take on a comedic thespian for January, focusing their energy on Canadian and original Saturday Night Live cast member Dan Aykroyd. The silver screen adaptation of Dragnet throws up a frankly amazing rap partnership between Aykroyd and former HAA subject Tom Hanks. Whilst Grosse Point Blank has such a magnificent soundtrack that the hosts stop recording to settle a background music dispute. Capping everything off is a review of the seminal music-based comedy caper: The Blues Brothers. Along the way, Ian expresses irritation at the relentless memory-flogging of dead celebrities, Pandy blames two British contributors for theoretically cock-blocking his brother, and the theme of 2018 HAA programming is spelled out in full. What is it? Listen in to find out! [ 2:59:55 || 86.7 MB ]


  8. This week on Dread Media, we sadly say goodbye to the horror literature legend and former guest of the show, Jack Ketchum, with a Dread Media Top Five of Desmond's favorite Ketchum books. Then, Duane joins him for a review of the amazing The Ninth Configuration. Songs include: "The Evil that Men Do" by Iron Maiden, "New Identity" by Hank Williams III, and "The Girl in the Slayer Jacket" by Pig Destroyer. RIP Dallas Mayr (aka Jack Ketchum). [ 1:05:49 || 31.8 MB ]


  9. Mike flubs the intro but leaves it in because he thinks it's funny. Then you'll hear "Batman's Great Mystery," from The Adventures of Superman radio program. In this radio drama, Bruce Wayne goes missing, and it's up to Robin, the Boy Wonder and Superman to find The Caped Crusader! [ 2:06:43 || 63.2 MB ]


  10. This week, it isn't Women in Horror month yet, but Desmond and Duane provide an episode featuring two feature reviews of women-centric films. First, they take a look at the anthology film XX, which had only two rules: each segment must be directed and written by a woman. Then, they take a look at Patchwork, a modern reworking of Frankenhooker. Check out some great tunes as well: "Blood Sisters" by Huntress, "Skeletons of Society" by Hellsongs, "Girls Go Chopping" by Lordi, and "Dead French Mathematicians" by Mares of Thrace. [ 1:20:21 || 38.8 MB ]


  11. Ian and Dave start the new year with a new show: Brian Fuller's Wonderfalls. In "Wax Lion," Jaye Tyler is just a normal person living in a trailer and working in a Niagara Falls gift shop. Then one day a malformed wax lion starts to talk to her, and soon multiple inanimate animals start speaking and urging her to get involved in the lives of strangers. This leads her to learn something new about her sister Sharon. In "Pink Flamingos," Jaye has no intention of running her father over with a car or attending her high school reunion. The animals have different ideas, however, so her father ends up in hospital and high school queen bee Gretchen Speck asks her to help organize the reunion. Dave has trouble pronouncing names, Ian identifies the two minutes of the show he has seen previously, and they reward one listener's loyalty entirely by accident. [ 1:31:14 || 32.2 MB ]


  12. This week on Dread Media, we highlight some recent extreme horror from overseas. First, Darryll and Desmond look at a listener-recommended little Irish head-fuck called The Canal. Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. does what any good horror fan does when looking for extreme horror: he looks to France. In particular, the Inside team's latest film: Among the Living. And, of course, there's music: "The Scene of the Crime" by The Stooges, "Haunted" by King Diamond, "Chemical Warfare" by Slayer, and "Couldn't Move Far Enough Away" by Polkadot Cadaver. [ 59:22 || 28.7 MB ]


  13. This week, Dread Media finally gets a look at Dario Argento's calling card: Suspiria. Desmond and Darryll go deep on the film. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on Creep 2. Of course, there are tunes: "Dwellers in Dream" by Sigh, "Witch" by Goblin, "Botanica de Los Angeles" by Xiu Xiu, and "Furor Diabolicus" by Watain. [ 1:16:19 || 36.9 MB ]

  14. First up, Mike thanks the newest patrons for their support, and draws a patron's name from a hat. Why does he do the latter? Listen to find out. After that, Mike finally begins to record reviews requested during the Shameless Pledge Drive. With the help of Dan, today you'll hear reviews of some interesting Batman and Scooby-Doo parodies. More cannot be said, not without risking your ISP or workplace firewall flagging this site as something it is not. [ 43:37 || 22.7 MB ]


  15. Happy New Year, Dreadites! This week, Desmond kicks off 2018 with a solo show dedicated to the very best of 2017 in horror books, comics, television, movies, and music! That's it. Use this as your buyer's guide for things you missed out on. Use our sponsors to purchase those items when you can. Yes, there's music, but those are form Desmond's top six records of the year, so he's not going to spoil it for you in the show notes, silly. Here's to an excellent 2018! [ 1:21:37 || 39.4 MB ]


  16. A former Doctor Who companion. A team of both superheroes and villains, some that are leaping off the comic page into live action for the first time. An immortal foe with a plan for world domination that spans centuries. What could possibly go wrong? As Donovan and Chris make their way through the first season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the answer turns out to be almost everything. [ 2:58:37 || 88.7 MB ]


  17. "Davis Guggenheim who?" we hear you ask. Why, it's no less than the critically acclaimed documentary film-maker behind Al Gore's Oscar winning, carbon-based thriller An Inconvenient Truth and guitar-fetish piece It Might Get Loud. The brothers have great fun discussing their musical ability, their spin on American party politics, and the charisma of the former "next President of the United States of America." If that was not excitement enough, this Yuletide edition includes a customary seasonal triple whammy of delights: The Brothers dip into their outtake collection, the third annual Tomlinson awards, and it's a Pandy editing special! Merry Christmas one and all! [ 2:33:41 || 74.2 MB ]


  18. Merry Christma-hanna-kwanzaa-solsti-ka! Pass the turkey leg! This week, Dread Media throws three reviews of Christmas horror at you. First Desmond and Duane take on the remarkably misguided The Elf. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid checks out the latest in a long line of Christmas slashers: All Through the House. Finally, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives a look at the Christmas thriller The Body. Take these carols a wassailin': "Christmas Devil" by Schizoid Lloyd, "Messed Up Xmas" by The Dollyrots, "Christmas with the Devil" by Spinal Tap, "Evil Friends" by Portugal, The Man, and "Silent Night, Deadly Night (acoustic)" by The Browns. Enjoy and be merry! [ 1:06:19 || 32.1 MB ]
