    Episode 654

    This week on Dread Media, we celebrate the return of Brian Keene after five long years. In this discussion we talk about a wide range of things: podcasting, the legacy of the late JF Gonzalez, writing Thor, and his brand new book End of the Road. Then, on top of that, Tom Deja swings by to review Invisible Man. Of course, there are tunes: "Metal Gods" by Judas Priest, "At the End of the Road" by Murder by Death, "Invisible Man" by The Breeders, and "Valhalla Rising" by Grand Magus.

  2. After an unexpected break that was Dave's fault, Dave and Ian are back with their firs show of 2020: Automan from 1983. They are joined by Dan Toland to talk about the pilot episode, where nerdy police computer expert Walter Nebicher creates a sentient hologram called Automan in order to fight crime. Walter and Automan are soon put to the test when Walter's colleague, Lt. Jack Curtis, goes missing while investigating the disappearance of several scientists. The trail will lead them to Switzerland, where Patrick Macnee is up to no good. On the way they discuss how much Switzerland looks in no way like California, debate how many people Automan kills along the way, and ponder on whether it is possible to waste the talent of Doug McClure.

  3. Dave Probert joins Christian on List and Shout, where they examine their favorite medics, diagnose the worst ones, and probe the most incredible operations ever put to screen and page. [ 2:01:01 || 149.0 MB ]
  4. Finally sinking their collective teeth into a modern Hollywood A-lister after many a month, The Brothers Wilson set their sights on Captain Slurry himself: Sylvester Stallone. Ian finally watches Stallone's cinematic calling card in Rocky, whereas Pandy finds himself watching Demolition Man. And both end up watching The Expendables for the first time. This episode will namecheck numerous towns from the West Midlands of England, whilst Ian names his favorite comedy film of the 1990s, and Pandy introduces the first instalment of his uncalled for segment "The Year of Hemmings."

    Episode 652

    This week on Dread Media, we get our kitty cat on! It's not often that we cover a romance film on this show, but when it's as weird as Are We Not Cats, we kind of have to. Then, Tom reviews Cats Kill. Songs included: "Crazy Cat" by Helloween, "The Hair Song" by Black Mountain, "Those Cats Kill" by Lola Lynch, and "Temple of the Cat" by Ayreon. [ 54:47 || 26.5 MB ]

    Episode 651

    This week on the show we take a look at two very different portrayals of the cult of personality. First up, Darryll and Desmond review the bizarre and compelling Dutch gypsyploitation film Borgman. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes a look at the weird hippiesploitation film Deathmaster. Tunes included: "Gypsy" by Mercyful Fate, "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour, "Deathmaster" by Toxic Holocaust, and "Hippie Killer" by Suicidal Tendencies. [ 57:25 || 27.8 MB ]

  10. The new decade begins as any new year on Hey, an Actor! begins, with a comedic actor. Namely Kristen Wiig. The Brothers Wilson step up to the task of examining the highly controversial version of Ghostbusters (2016), before settling into the more standard fare of Wiig's cinematic breakthrough of Bridesmaids, and her more dramatic turn against SNL co-star Bill Hader in The Skeleton Twins. The hosts also use their time to discuss graphic alternative methods of vasectomy, confiscated toys, and obscure UK puppet show Bug Alert.

    Episode 649

    This week on Dread Media, we've got some wild monster movies. First off, we pay tribute to the metal musicians who have died in January, and then we take a look sat the gore-cut of the 90s children's film Tammy and the T-Rex. Then Tom Deja pays homage to a classic Dread Media segment from way back in his review of The Meg. Songs included: "Crash Course in Brain Surgery" by Metallica, "Big Robot Dinosaur" by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, "The Megalodon" and "Albatross" by Corrosion of Conformity. RIP Reed Mullin, et al. [ 1:05:05 || 31.5 MB ]

    Episode 648

    This week on Dread Media, we take a look again at some of the films from 2019. This time, Desmond and Darryll hated the last Godzilla film. Then they adored Kong: Skull Island. But what do they think of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes a look at Netflix's Stephen King / Joe Hill adaptation In the Tall Grass. There are, of course, big tunes: "Biotech is Godzilla" by Sepultura, "Godzilla" by Blue Oyster Cult, "The Midnight Special" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and "No Shelter" by Rage Against the Machine.

  14. Tom and his roommate Chris live in Bristol, England. Kellen and his wife Jen live in Madison Heights, Michigan, USA. It only makes sense that the first place they would meet in person is Tokyo, Japan. Tom and Kellen discuss their simultaneous vacations with a heavy emphasis on their shared experiences at Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling's TJP '20, as well as both nights of New Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestle Kingdom 14 in Tokyo Dome and New Year's Dash. [ 3:28:14 || 67.5 MB ]
  15. Each year, the Royal Rumble not only begins the road to WrestleMania, but it also provides for some of the best surprises in the form of major returns and shocking debuts. With that in mind, Dave and Mike sat down to predict some surprises and storylines we might see at Royal Rumble 2020! [ 1:40:02 || 68.4 MB ]

    Episode 645

    It's that time again: time to celebrate the best of 2019! In this episode, Desmond runs down his favorite books, television, comics, movies, music, and other releases of the year. Hope all the Dreadites had a safe and happy New Year. Let's crush 2020! The songs this week are my favorite releases of the year. Go buy everything I talk about. [ 1:16:31 || 36.9 MB ]
  20. The end of The Year of the Rings is upon us, and in a surprise twist that rivals the film Soylent Green, this month's person of interest is the Knight of New Zealand himself: Peter Jackson! The brothers explore two non-Rings films in the form of the 2005 mocap-based gorilla snuff film King Kong, and whacky murder romp Heavenly Creatures. They also discuss the highs and lows of the six Rings films. Along the way there a traditional festive challenge from Christian Honore, which posits which Nintendo character Sir Ian McKellen would best suit, we discover Peter Jackson's cheeky-chappy side in his very own jingle, and did someone say "Email-bot redemption arc?" Plus: a Tomlinson awards that bucks many a trend, and some incredibly bad taste outtakes! Thank you all for a fabulous year of HAA! [ 3:14:55 || 187.5 MB ]
  21. Ian and Dave see out 2019 with the last two episodes of Crazyhead. In "Downward Facing Dog," Raquel goes on a date with Harry while Amy tries to warn her about the vision of Harry attacking her. It soon becomes clear that Harry is not telling the whole truth. In "Beaver with a Chainsaw," it is Halloween night and all of Callum's plans are coming to fruition. The gates of Hell are about to be thrown wide open, and the only people standing in his way are Amy and Jake. They also discuss the series as a whole, what they would have liked from a second season, and name their series MVPs. Then they welcome Statistician Ian to let them know how they are going to be kicking off 2020! [ 1:59:26 || 88.1 MB ]
  22. It's almost a new year, so Skyler and Will celebrate by reviewing a less-than-great sequel: Rudolph's Shiny New Year. What they find is a cosmology that is questionable at best, some rather unnecessary choices, and characters that are just barely memorable. [ 52:41 || 36.5 MB ]

    Episode 644

    This week, we ride out the end of the year with a look at the only collaboration between Dread Media favorite actor Nicolas Cage and Dread Media favorite director Werner Herzog: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Then Tom stops by to give us his thoughts on Cage's historical horror action film Season of the Witch. Finally, I do a top five of recommendations for Nicolas Cage / Werner Herzog double features. All that, plus tunes: "New Orleans is a Dying Whore" by Down, "New Orleans is Sinking" by The Tragically Hip, "Season of the Witch" by Hole, "Wrath of God" by Halford, and "This Year" by Mountain Goats.

  24. In the face of Armageddon, a moral compromise must be made. [ 1:45:54 || 51.3 MB ]
  25. Reuniting for the first time in over a year, Pandy and Christian discuss the two-part finale of the original British incarnation of The Office ("The Office Christmas Specials"), as well as a two-part Christmas episode from the American version ("A Benihana Christmas"). [ 58:05 || 31.4 MB ]
