Monster Kid Radio

Jeff Owens, co-host of the Classic Horrors Club podcast, joins Derek this week to take a . . . um . . . look at the 1940 film The Invisible Man Returns (dir. Joe May). When Jeff isn't working on his own podcast with his co-host (and long-time Monster Kid Radio friend Rich Chamberlain), he's running his site Classic Horrors Club, or writing for Boom Howdy or Downright Creepy, he's been dreaming of the day he'll get to play the Classic Five on Monster Kid Radio. Lucky for Jeff, we get to do that this week, too!

Animator, filmmaker, monster kid Mark Bailey joins Monster Kid Radio this week to talk about, among other things, the New York City Giant Monster Attack Map. This incredible project spotlights a number of monster movies (and video games, comics, etc.!) that take the Big Apple and turn it into a giant monster playground. Mark tells Derek (and the listeners) about his background, and they even play a round of the Classic Five. Also in this episode, we have some feedback from fellow podcaster Rod Barnett, and we take a look at this year's winners of the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards.

Clearly, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is copying Monster Kid Radio . . . right? Okay, not really. But it IS a happy (?) accident that MST3k covered The Beast of Hollow Mountain (dir. Edward Nassour, Ismael Rodríguez) and released their episode to Netflix right around the same time Anthony Wendel joined Derek on the podcast to talk about the movie! Anthony is a long-time fan of all things monstrously large, and he's putting his experience and expertise to good use with the release of his book The Handbook for Surviving a Giant Monster Attack, which is available now from Severed Press.

Derek rides shotgun as Scott Morris takes him on a ride to check out the 1977 film The Car (dir. Elliot Silverstein). This casual chat was originally recorded earlier this year, and now that Monster Kid Radio has fully recovered from its recent hard drive failure, we can get this show out of the shop and into your ears.

What is it about the Bride character that makes her so iconic and included in the line-up of classic Universal monsters even though she only has a few minutes of screen time? Cort Psyops joins Derek this week on Monster Kid Radio to discuss this and more when they talk about one of the best sequels of all movie-dom - Bride of Frankenstein (dr. James Whale).

Seb Godin is a filmmaker who likes monster movies . . . and slime, so he's a perfect guest to join Derek this week on Monster Kid Radio to discuss the 1963's The Slime People (dir. Robert Hutton). Seb's taking that love of monsters and slime and directing the upcoming film Lycanimator, so we'll get to hear about that as well. Along the way, we learn what scared Seb as a kid and what movie truly chills him (it's probably not what you think!). After recording with Seb, Derek later discovered why The Slime People important to MSTies (thanks, Scott!). Also, we have feedback in response to last week's epic Kong-versation with Paul McComas about Kong: Skull Island (dir. Jordan Vogt-Roberts). And did you see some of the new features at the Monster Kid Radio website?

Not even a Kong-sized head cold can stop this week's epic episode of Monster Kid Radio! Kong: Skull Island (dir. Jordan Vogt-Roberts) has stomped its way across movie screens, and the monster kids were there to see it! Tom Daufel joined Derek for an afternoon screening of the film, and after you hear his thoughts on the movie, settle in, because Paul McComas returns to MKR to break down the film in more ways than one! After all that, if you still have room in your ears, you can hear what some listeners of Monster Kid Radio thought of the film as well. This is a longer episode than normal, and it's filled with SPOILERS . . . so you've been warned!

Monster kid Greg Starrett returns to Monster Kid Radio this week to join Derek for a conversation about the 1928 film The Man Who Laughs (dir. Paul Leni). One of them has never really watched the movie before, and since Greg is one of the people behind Veidt Radio Theater and even published a zine devoted to Conrad Veidt when he was a kid, it's probably not Greg who's not seen The Man Who Laughs. Greg even dressed up as Gwynplaine when he was younger . . . multiple times.

http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i236/BrotherD/themanwholaughsgreg_zpsmhrtzx2w.jpgAlso, courtesy of Greg and the rest of Veidt Radio Theater, Monster Kid Radio is proud to run their audio drama production The Laughing Man. You'll get all this, plus listener feedback, in this week's episode of Monster Kid Radio!

And Happy Monster Day, everybody! Be sure to check out the latest in the Mihmiverse at http://www.sainteuphoria.com/.
