Monster Kid Radio #094 - Thunder Fist Punching Infra-Man with Ray Jelinek

Ray Jelinek continues his Infra-Man stint on Monster Kid Radio as he and Derek thunder fist punch their way into the nitty gritty of this 1975 Shan Hua-directed film. Ray's life was changed the day he saw this film as a child, and Derek wishes he had that same formative experience. In addition to Derek and Ray wrapping up their discussion of Infra-Man, Derek learns about Ray's childhood horror host.

Monster Kid Radio #093 - A super-fun time with Ray Jelinek and Infra-Man!

When Derek first started talking with his friends about about launching Monster Kid Radio, Ray Jelinek started talking about a movie he remembered seeing when he was a kid. That movie was 1975's Infra-Man (dir. Shan Hua), and while it wasn't a movie that would normally find a home in the Monster Kid Radio wheelhouse, Ray's enthusiasm and outright glee when talking about this movie makes Infra-Man something we DEFINITELY need to talk about on the podcast.

Monster Kid Radio #089 - Report from the 2014 H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon

Last weekend was the 2014 H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon, and Monster Kid Radio was there! For three days, Lovecraft fans took over Portland's Hollywood Theatre for feature films, short movies, author readings and signings, panel discussions, madness-inducing parties...so basically just a really good time! Derek was a small part of the show this year as he was asked to introduce the 1968 film Curse of the Crimson Altar (dir. Vernon Sewell), as well as participate in one of the panels. Between events, Derek caught up with old and new friends, and in this episode of Monster Kid Radio, you'll hear some of those conversations. First, Derek spoke with author David Agranoff about his recent books (Boot Boys of the Wolf Reich, Hunting the Moon Tribe) and where you might find a horror host or monster influence in them. Then, Derek spoke two composers whose work has had a home on his iPod for years - Troy Sterling Nies and Reber Clark. They're two of the four composers behind the excellent album Out of the Aeons: Music for a New Dark Age. Finally, Derek checks in with Monster Kid Radio regulars Ray Jelinek and Chris McMillan for their thoughts on this year's festival.

Monster Kid Radio #087 - Andy Camble vs. The Deadly Mantis

This week's guest host is no stranger to giant monsters. Andy Camble is the producer of the always excellent Kaiju 101 podcast, and he's joining Monster Kid Radio to talk about a non-rubber-suited monster - The Deadly Mantis (dir. Nathan Juran). How does this film compare to other big bug movies of the time? Do birds really have a skeletal system? And what is Newton's Third Law?

Also, Ray Jelinek tells Derek why he's attending the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival this year. (Apparently he survived last year's event!)

Monster Kid Radio #085 - MKR Crashes Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters

The final installment of the 2014 Cinescopio film series happened March 20, 2014, and Derek was there. The movie? Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters (dir. Gilberto Martínez Solares). The event? A Monster Kid Radio Crash. Derek was joined by MKR listeners/crashers Tom Daufel, Ray Jelinek, and Chris McMillan for a night of masked wrestling, monsters, Santo, Blue Demon, a creepy little monster dude that scared Derek more than any other monster in the film, a fashion show, a panel (featuring Mega Boy and Ideal Mexican, moderated by John Cárdenas) . . . and plenty of laughs. This was an amazing night, and Derek had his recorder on hand to share the evening with the Monster Kid Radio listeners who couldn't make the show.
