  1. 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.

  2. Ian and Dave try out a new viewing format as they take their first trip to the 1970s with The Persuaders. In "Overture," Millionaire playboys Danny Wilde and Lord Brett Sinclair find themselves blackmailed into helping a retired Judge named Fulton into helping him to investigate the sister of a European crime kingpin. In "The Gold Napoleon," Danny meets a nice woman at the airport who is then shot by a sniper. With the press speculating that Danny was the intended victim, Danny resolves to discover the truth. In "Someone Like Me," Brett is kidnapped and kept in a fake hospital. Upon getting back home he becomes convinced that someone has created a doppelgänger, but truth is much more sinister. They also discuss the impressive stunt prowess of Tony Curtis, the good and bad things that come with 70s TV, and are reunited with the writer that brought them together as a podcast team to begin with.

  3. What better way to celebrate the twin accomplishments of Ian's impending house ownership, and Burt Reynolds' entire film career than having a Pandy editing special? The Brother's Wilson investigate three films around the pinnacle of his popularity: the sexy rootin, tootin musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas; the banjo and sodomy classic Deliverance; and the mothertruckin' Smokey and the Bandit. Listen in to hear some of Reynolds' amazing pithy one-liners, discover Pandy's deep history with one of the films, find out how Ian would use Emmett Brown to improve a film, and hear The Brothers saying they don't want to speak ill of the dead despite speaking ill of the dead.

  4. "If you were going to give the United States of America an enema, you'd stick the hose right here in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania!" Yes, this week Raw emanates from the Steel City as the build to SummerSlam continues. Sable finds herself next to a stack of cash as Vince struggles to connect with his audience, Shotgun is missing and presumed miss-able, the Godwinns are in a real love / hate situation, and we catch up with The Undertaker at home prior to his match with The Hitman.

  5. It's a week of cinematic oddities this week on Dread Media with two weirdo Japanese films and a tribute to the late George Romero sandwiched in between. First up, Desmond and Duane try to go in depth on Sion Sono's bizarre film Tag. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid talks about his love for Romero's labor of love: Knightriders. Then Devil Dinosaur Jr. goes back to 1973 to review the dreamlike rape / revenge animated Japanese film Belladonna of Sadness. Keep Dread Media weird! Songs include: "All of Our Lives Will Get Tried" by Superjoint Ritual, "Tag, You're It!" by Alice Cooper, "Neon Knights" by Black Sabbath, "Sadder than You" by Fig. 4, and "She Lives in Color" by Shooter Jennings. Enjoy! [ 1:08:45 || 33.2 MB ]


  6. Nearly 40 years ago, Nicholas Hammond debuted as a certain wall-crawler in the live-action television program The Amazing Spider-Man. Today, Dan and Mike discuss the first feature-length episode, but they also diverge into Spider-Man: Homecoming and the oddity that is the Rocky franchise. [ 1:06:20 || 34.9 MB ]


  7. Welcome to the first post-Europe podcast for Dread Media. It's been at least six weeks since Desmond has recorded a podcast, even though it's only been a week since the last Dread Media. Desmond kicks off the show by running down the Europe trip and then telling a story about the time last night his little dog fought a cougar. And not a fun cougar. A real one. Then, having enough with reality, the show veers into science fiction as Desmond interviews authors David Agranoff and Edward R Morris about their collaborative epic, dirty sci-fi novel out now from Grand Mal Press: Flesh Trade. The guys discuss their influences and their process for collaborating, as well as other projects in an hour-long interview. Then, keeping the sci-fi going, Rich the Monster Movie Kid tells us his thoughts about Luc Besson's return to the genre in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Some cosmic tunes for you: "Enslaver" by Ram, "Slave New World" by Sepultura, "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, and "Space Police" by Edguy. [ 1:48:10 || 52.1 MB ]


  8. and collide in this Qo'noS-sized edition of List and Shout! This time, Pandy and Christian are joined by Peter and Anne-Marie Organ of the bOrgcast! Together, the four discuss the aliens they'd most like to meet (RE: go to the pub with), their favorite alien worlds, and the lamest aliens overall. [ 1:44:05 || 51.7 MB ]


  9. Desmond is back from vacation, and perhaps it's the fact that he's dreading work that he brought this episode to you this week: workplace horror. First, Adam, Desmond, and Jeff look at a movie where an insurance investigator goes looking for a best-selling author who has missed his deadline in their review of John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness. Then, Desmond goes solo in reviews of corporate horror stories: Bentley Little's novel The Consultant, and James Gunn and Greg McLean's film The Belko Experiment. Then, nothing tells you how much of a hard job filmmaking is than the Astron 6 film about making a movie: The Editor. Tunes include: "Workin' Man" by Hank Williams III, "In the Mouth of Madness" by John Carpenter and Jim Lang, "Grim Business" by Iron Reagan, "The Cutting Room" by Pig Destroyer, and "I Hate My Job (live)" by Butthole Surfers.

  10. Part three of the three-part Comic-Con International: San Diego interviewpalooza is filled to the brim with the cast and crew of Riverdale: Sarah Schechter, Asha Bromfield, and Haley Law; Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and Casey Cott; KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse; Madeline Petsch and Ashleigh Murray; and Lili Reinhart and Camilla Mendes! [ 31:35 || 17.8 MB ]


  11. Part two of the three-part Comic-Con International: San Diego interviewpalooza sees Donovan Morgan Grant interview the creative minds behind Batman and Harley Quinn: Kevin Conroy, Jim Krieg, Bruce Timm, Paget Brewster, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Loren Lester! [ 44:05 || 22.5 MB ]


  12. Today begins a three-part Comic-Con International: San Diego interviewpalooza, all thanks to Donovan Morgan Grant. First up, Donovan speaks with the creative minds behind Steven Universe and OK KO! Let's Be Heroes: Zach Callison, Rebecca Sugar, and Ian Jones-Quartey. [ 50:35 || 26.6 MB ]

  13. Kate Winslet is one of the most acclaimed actresses of her generation: fact. With that in mind, how will The Brothers Wilson screw up / trivialize their analysis of one of the most famous people to come out of Berkshire, England? The film choices certainly stack up: starting with Winslet's Oscar win for the post-World War II drama The Reader, proceeding on to her breakthrough role as Marianne Dashwood in Emma Thompson's 1995 adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, and then as the female lead in a little film known as Titanic. The always razor-sharp analysis involves Alan Rickman impressions, a timely reference to Divine Brown, and a failure on both hosts to say the word "admirable". This episode also marks the debut appearances of Ralph Fiennes, Ioan Gruffudd, and Billy "Slam Evil" Zane, whilst the actor Greg Wise is mocked for being a minor celebrity. And if you think this episode is ending on a Celine Dion song, you're only partly correct. [ 3:09:03 || 91.1 MB ]


  14. What if I told you that you weren't reading these show notes right now? Think I'm crazy? Well, maybe I'm just crazy enough to broadcast these notes and this podcast into your mind! Or not. Whatever. Jeez. Anyway. This week, Chris and Desmond dive into the character actor-laden psychic thriller The Fury. Then Desmond goes solo on another character actor-laden psychic thriller: Firestarter. Enjoy. I'll even beam some tunes right into your brain: "Veteran of the Psychic Wars" by Blue Oyster Cult, "Learn to Bleed" by Doyle, "Eyes Ripping Fire" by Danzig, and "Play with Fire" by Cobra Verde. [ 1:20:08 || 38.7 MB ]

  15. Captain Kirk finds himself the unwitting lover a woman who's to be married off to prevent a war ("Elaan of Troyius"). Then Kirk and Spock are held captive by a former Fleet Captain who wishes to rule with an iron fist ("Whom Gods Destroy"). Plus: Dan and Mike discuss the first full Star Trek: Discovery trailer, as well as the trailer for The Orville. [ 1:00:42 || 29.6 MB ]

  16. This week, Desmond may have lost the original episode slated for this week, but that didn't stop him from working harder and producing another one for your listening pleasure. This episode is based around investigative horror. First, Duane and Desmond review The Quiet Ones, where a group of scholars conduct an experiment on a troubled young girl. Then, Devil Dinosaur Jr. gives us a Stay Scary on The Appointment, where a malevolent force preys upon a family. Then Desmond presents a Dread Media Top Five on fun, weird, investigative pulp horror across all media. Then, of course there's music: "The Experiment" by Prometheon, "Cum on Feel the Noize" by Slade, "My Girl" by Madness, "Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion" by Fantomas, and "World Gone Mad" by Life of Agony. [ 1:03:26 || 30.7 MB ]

  17. Dave and Ian bring their viewing of Star Cops to a close with the last three episodes. In "A Double Life," the frozen embryos of a rich and powerful woman are stolen from the new Moonbase hospital facility, and the prime suspect has a perfect alibi. In "Other People's Secrets," David shadows the Moonbase's chief engineer to see if he is a saboteur, and the team are analyzed by a psychiatrist who also happens to be Devis' ex-wife. Finally, in "Little Green Men and Other Martians," two reporters arrive on Moonbase amid rumors of an amazing discovery on Mars, which someone is willing to kill for. They also go over the show as a whole, name their series MVPs, and Statistician Ian institutes a new approach for the next show to be covered. [ 2:39:52 || 61.5 MB ]

  18. Ian Wilson returns to introduce a previously unreleased comic book movie review between him, Dave Probert, and Jim Moon, with the English trio looking at League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. There are also updates as to the current status of Comic Reel-lief and For Your Ears Only. [ 1:32:05 || 46.1 MB ]

  19. This week, malevolent forces invade the minds and lives of the innocent! First, Desmond and Duane look at a deal-with-the-devil-gone-wrong film: Devil's Domain. Devil Dinosaur Jr. dives into a Stay Scary of a film where a woman is haunted by the ghosts of nasty children in Full Circle (AKA The Haunting of Julia). Finally, Desmond's son, Cade, joins him to discuss water and Naomi Watts in their review of The Ring Two. Songs include: "She Wants Me (Dead)" by The Satans, "Lisa and the Devil" by The Browns, "Theme from Full Circle" by Colin Towns, "Into the Public Bath" by Cattle Decapitation," and "Waterwitch" by Candlemass.

First up, Desmond and Duane look at the upcoming martial arts action / horror film Karate Kill. Then, The Commonwealth Crew returns for another Dread Reel-ief, looking at a sequel to a film they disagreed about; did Ian and Desmond disagree on Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem? You'll have to hang around to see. Tunes include: "Fight" by Early Man, "Karate" by Tenacious D, "Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem" by Brian Tyler, and "Fight 'Em 'Til You Can't" by Anthrax.
