  1. Saying "2020 sucked" is the understatement of all understatements. But what got us through it? That's what Dan and Mike are here to discuss today. From Jimmy Olsen to Hitman, a new Twitter feed to discovering YouTube channels, the guys look at what brought them comfort during very rough times. [ 1:49:30 || 54.6 MB ]
  2. Despite the misleading poster and title, Chopping Mall remains a classic of 1980s horror / sci-fi cinema with two amazing female leads. Desmond and Tom talk all about that and more in their review of the Wynorski film this week. Then, Desmond goes solo on a Dread Media Top 5 TV Shows I'm Watching Lately. Look, they're not all going to have great themes! Songs included: "Chop Chop Chop" by Alice Cooper, "Robot Assisted Suicide" by Polkadot Cadaver, "Your Window Is Open" by Macabre, and "John Carpenter Powder Ballad" by Turbonegro.

Along the way Pandy rants, Ian lays out the secret behind Danny Elfman's career, and a Pandy Parody closes out the show. [ 3:10:46 || 91.9 MB ]

  9. This week on Dread Media, help ring in episode 700 with us as Desmond and Tom review the entire Resident Evil series! All six films get reviews this week, so make sure to jump in on the action of Milla being purty, poor continuity, and the inability to tell these movies apart. It ain't pretty, but it's really fun.

  13. Fresh off the scratching post in a French peasant's blockade: it's 2020's Hey, an Actor! Christmas Special! In accordance with tradition, the December Director is Tom Hooper and The Brothers Wilson sink their teeth into two of his high-profile adaptations of musicals. First, 2012's Les Miserables, and then 2019's Cats. Questions answered include: Whose were Pandy's first pair of filmic breasts? Which brother prefers a CGI abomination to a depressing French romp? And, what of all the musical offerings was chosen to end the episode? If that wasn't enough, there's also the Tomlinson Awards, a small selection of outtakes, and a lot of feedback fun. Merry Christmas, y'all! [ 2:50:24 || 82.1 MB ]

As such, our old friend Sezin Koehler and our new friend Paula Ashe join Desmond to go in-depth on Pascal Laugier's Martyrs.

  16. Between tangents on the Disney shareholders meeting, Scooby-Doo, American Pie spin-offs, and what makes a Christmas movie, Skyler and Will find time to talk about Home Alone: The Holiday Heist. It has guilt trips, Malcolm McDowell, and a potentially drunk former Lou Grant cast member. [ 1:42:19 || 51.9 MB ]

Both hosts experience Brewster's Millions for the first time, whilst Pandy nominates one of Pryor's many collaborations with the great Gene Wilder in See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Ian finally allows a comic book movie to be covered on HAA via Superman III. We also deliver a mea culpa from Ian (RE: the podcast's delay), gain Evie Wilson's familiarity with the DC Universe, and, in a first for the podcast, announce the subject of our End of Year special (to be recorded very soon).
