  1. It's Previews time! In this episode Mike visits The Planet of the Apes, reveals a McCarthy-era take on Snagglepuss, and crosses dimensions as the Battlestar Galactica takes on the Battlestar Galactica! (Note: Mike mistakenly called a Dark Horse series Kitchen Nightmares: Hungry Ghosts #1. It is, in fact, Hungry Ghosts #1.) [ 35:44 || 19.8 MB ]


  2. In this jam-packed 12th anniversary episode of The Show: Dave and Mike discuss recent geeky media, including trailers for The Punisher and Runaways, as well as some Doctor Who casting; then Mike asks if USAvengers #11 and Wonder Woman #33 are good jumping-on points; he then reviews the forthcoming film My Friend Dahmer; and, lastly, it's the spoooooky return of 1st Issue Special! [ 2:37:56 || 78.0 MB ]


  3. Animezing Podcast returns for its annual Halloween tradition as Kellen Scrivens and James Trenchard (nominally) provide running commentary for Hellsing Ultimate OVA IX. In between observations, catch up with the two as they cover the last year of happenings in anime, including clubs, shows, and Kellen's return to Ai-Kon. [ 52:06 || 24.1 MB ]


  4. This week's episode celebrates Halloween in the only way we know how: talking about movies. And, of course, no Halloween season is complete without a chat with our friend Greg Lamberson. As such, he's the runner of the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival which starts this week, so we talk about a lot of movies. Also, Devil Dinosaur Jr. wants to get nuts, so he gets nuts with Blood Rage. We also pay tribute to two musicians we lost this week. RIP Scott "Daisy Berkowitz" Putesky and Martin Eric Ain. Songs: "Get Your Gunn" by Marilyn Manson, "Beyond Electric Dreams" by Bad Religion, "Institutionalized" by Suicidal Tendencies, and "A Dying God Coming into Human Flesh" by Celtic Frost. [ 1:39:17 || 47.9 MB ]


  5. Dave and Ian cover three episodes of The Persuaders as voted for by listeners. In "The Old, the New and the Deadly," Danny finds himself targeted by evil Nazi Patrick Troughton due to a case of mistaken identity. In "That's Me Over There," Brett's investigation into businessman Thaddeus Krane leads him to being kidnapped, and Danny must impersonate Brett in order to get vital information. And in "The Man in the Middle," Brett doing a favor for Judge Fulton leads to a case of mistaken identity as they try to uncover a mole in British intelligence. Danny and Brett's third cousin, Terry-Thomas, must stage a rescue. They also discuss Roger Moore's superhero alter ego, Brettman; characters regularly reaming unnamed on screen for most of the episodes; bring down the imagined legal wrath of the Association of Tennis Professionals; and are delighted to be reunited with two actors from Blake's 7. [ 2:24:06 || 56.3 MB ]


  6. This week, three reviews of three very different films. First up, Desmond and Duane review Phil Stevens' hypnotically grotesque and nasty extreme horror film Lung. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes on a lesser known Vincent Price film: Cry of the Banshee. Finally, Darryll and Desmond review Sandy Collora's aquatic creature feature short film Shallow Water. And, of course, there are tunes: "Breathe (In the Air)" by Doom Side of the Moon, "Zodiac Lung" by Monster Magnet, "Spellbound" by Siouxsee and the Banshees, "Breathing from the Shallows" by Yob, and "Behind the Fall" by Black Mountain. Enjoy! [ 1:21:05 || 39.1 MB ]


  7. First, Mike takes a look at Batman #33 and Doctor Strange #26. Specifically he asks one question: "Are these good jumping-on points?" Then Dan and Will are back for more untitled fun as they take a look at the animated adventures of Flash Gordon, covering The New Adventures of Flash Gordon, Defenders of the Earth, and 1996's Flash Gordon. Also: Why Will should be in charge of King Features Syndicated Cinematic Universe. (Note: Mike said Joëlle Jones colored Batman #33. This is an error. Jordie Bellaire colored the issue.) [ 1:16:30 || 39.8 MB ]


  8. A mere three months before the first Blade movie changed the course of comic book cinema, Fox premiered Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD. Thanks to an odd combination of gritty cinematography and campy acting choices, Dan and Mike have much to say about this mixed bag. Before all that, however, Mike promotes the renewed Patreon page: If you have the means, please consider supporting The Show by becoming a monthly patron. [ 1:00:45 || 31.3 MB ]


  9. This week, Desmond starts the show off announcing the debut of Dread Media's Patreon page. For a decade, Dread Media has given you free weekly content without fail. Please see fit to visit to check out the tiers and rewards available to see what's right for you. Every little bit helps! Now, this week's episode deals with all disappointing films. Thank goodness the reviews are good! First up, Desmond and Duane review The Ice Cream Truck, a film that didn't know what it was even though both Des and Duane knew and wanted it to pay off. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid doesn't have as much fun as the title implies in his review of The Deadly Bees. Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. wants more in his review of Small Town Killers. Want some songs? I got yer songs right here: "When All Your Fears Collide" by Propagandhi, "Satan's Ice Cream Truck" by Strapping Young Lad, "That's All I Need You For" by The Birds, "Love Goes on Forever" by Love Shop, and "The Great Disappointment" by AFI. [ 1:18:11 || 37.8 MB ]


  10. This week, death does a lot of stuff. Some good, some horrible. First up, death stalks the Red Light District and the canals of Amsterdam as Darryll and Desmond review Amsterdamned. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. tries to get a handle on what death does in a double feature of the giallos Death Walks on High Heels and Death Walks at Midnight. Before I get to the music, I also wanted to say that death also happened to pull Tom Petty away from us this week. RIP Tom Petty. Songs included: "Joy Through Death" by Grave Pleasures, "Canals in the City" by Year of the Flood, "Strutter" by KISS, "Living After Midnight" by Judas Priest, and "Supernatural Radio" by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. [ 1:20:12 || 38.7 MB ]


  11. We have come to one of the greatest subtitled major Pay-Per-Views of all time: Summerslam: Hart & Soul. Come for the continued dominance of Los Boricuas in the Gang Warz, stay for the supremely performed final minutes of the Bret Hart v Undertaker, then get kind of awkward as we go over the terrible aftermath of the Owen Hart v Steve Austin Intercontinental Championship clash. [ 4:16:17 || 119.8 MB ]


  12. This month sees Hey, an Actor! profile one of Hollywood's topmost A-listers from the end of the 20th century: Mel Gibson. The Brothers Wilson combine to chart the rise, fall, and partial resurgence of one of their most controversial subjects to date, with a particularly lengthy discussion about career resurrection and redemption. And as this is also a movie podcast in part, the episode covers Gibson's American breakthrough hit Lethal Weapon, the baffling pinnacle of his career in Braveheart, and the almost perversely insightful career doldrums movie The Beaver. (No sniggering at the back!) There's also some drunken insight into Lethal Weapon from The Orgs, whilst Ian dusts off his history hat to rip Braveheart a new one in terms of historical accuracy and why it is emblematic of today's post-truth society. [ 3:07:04 || 90.2 MB ]


  13. This week, hold onto your hats because we're altering the format slightly! First, Desmond kicks off the show by doing a solo review on the brand-new entry in the Chucky universe: Cult of Chucky. Listen close because, at the end of the review, Des draws the winner for our Blu-ray giveaway. Then, Desmond is joined by Duane to attend Circus Kane. Afterwards, Devil Dinosaur Jr. spends a night in Ghosthouse. There are a bevy of tunes to entertain you as well: "Playing with Dolls" by Slayer, "Psycho Circus" by KISS, "Ghost Story" by Brocas Helm, and "Toy" by Melvins. [ 1:14:29 || 36.0 MB ]


  14. This week Desmond is sick. But he presents an interview with Mike Lombardo, who, besides also being sick and getting Desmond's blame for his own sickness via Skype-germs, has directed his first feature film: I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. presents a Stay Scary on the classic sleazy slasher The Mutilator. Rich the Monster Movie Kid rounds out the show to review the creepy killer kid movie What the Peeper Saw. Of course there are some tunes: "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" by The Browns, "The Christmas that Almost Wasn't" by Osaka Popstar & The American Legends of Punk, "World's Best Dad" by Ten Foot Pole, "Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?" by The Misfits, and "Doomsday" by MF Doom. [ 1:11:37 || 34.6 MB ]


  15. With Ian in the process of moving into his new house and Dave about to go on holiday, they decide to take a break from their regular schedule and look back at all the shows that they have covered up to this point. What was the show they enjoyed the most? Which show was the most contentious? Which show contains one of Ian's favorite pieces of TV dialogue ever? Is Dave a contradiction for hating Crime Traveller yet owning to copies of the box set and the only piece of bootleg merchandise known to exist? All these questions and more will be answered. [ 1:27:34 || 35.9 MB ]


  16. Catwoman II stops by to do stuff ("That Which Survives"), and a space storm destroys Memory Alpha ("The Lights of Zetar"). Also: Mike digs himself into one hell of a deep hole, which even an edit cannot fix. [ 1:09:05 || 33.6 MB ]


  17. This week Darryll and Desmond talk about a little-known film you probably haven't heard of: It. Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary of Fender Bender. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews the exploitation film Mr. No Legs. On top of that, there's not one but two giveaways, one clown-related and one creepy-doll-related. Songs included: "What If I?" by Pennywise, "Captive Bolt Pistol" by Carcass, "Hell Bent for Leather" by Judas Priest, "Shake a Leg" by AC / DC, and "The Chylde and the Clowne" by Owl. [ 1:36:20 || 46.5 MB ]


  18. This week, Desmond and Duane review the 1973 underground cannibal film Death Line (AKA Raw Meat). Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on The Alchemist Cookbook. Finally, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews the other Stephen King adaptation that's not setting the world on fire right now: The Dark Tower. Songs included: "Underground" by Medication, "Cannibalistic Invasivorism" by Cattle Decapitation, "Run Away" by Smoking Popes, "Paint it Black" by The Rolling Stones, and "Tainted Empire" by Perturbator. [ 1:11:17 || 34.4 MB ]


  19. As Monty Python used to say: "And now for something completely different!" This week, Dread Media helps take a stand against those who would put children in danger. Greg Lamberson joins Desmond for a discussion about Victor Salva, director of the upcoming third installation of his Jeepers Creepers series. In the discussion, they wonder why, when there are so many other thriving independent artists struggling to make films on pocket change, theatre chains like AMC and Regal Cinema, as well as producers like Francis Ford Coppola, continue to wholeheartedly support a convicted, unrepentant pedophile. Then, just so things don't drag the entire episode into an abyss of real-world horror, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on Green Room director (and upcoming True Detective mastermind) Jeremy Saulnier's early film Murder Party. Finally, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews War for the Planet of the Apes. Songs included: "Silver Rocket" by Sonic Youth, "The Ape's Shuffle" by Jeff Wayne Space Shuttle, and "Could this Be the End" by Brendon Small. Whatever the battle, Dread Media sides with the people trying to keep children safe. Anyone else is the enemy. [ 1:24:29 || 40.8 MB ]


  20. The Riddler chases down a political dissident, with Kirk and his crew trapped in the middle ("Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"). And a childhood illness might hold the key for an ever-growing / never-dying population ("The Mark of Gideon"). [ 1:14:57 || 36.4 MB ]


  21. This week, Dread Media once again travels to the world of childhood terror: children we should be afraid of, things children should be afraid of, and the power that some children can have and the world that hates them for it. First, Desmond and Duane look at the young life of a fascist ruler post-World War I in The Childhood of a Leader. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid gives us a review of a prequel to a spinoff about a children's toy: Annabelle: Creation. Finally, Devil Dinosaur Jr. watches a girl with strange powers hunted by the forces of good and evil in The Visitor. And we've got songs as always: "Obedience School" by Dead Cross, "Little Bastard" by Ass Ponys, "Creepy Doll" by Jonathan Coulton, "Oppression" by Satan, and "Death Whispered a Lullaby" by Opeth.
