Monster Kid Radio #083 - Getting raw with Ed Wood and Joe Blevins

A few weeks ago, Joe Blevins (Dead 2 Rights) joined Derek to talk about the careet of Edward D. Wood, Jr., as well as some of the lesser-known Ed Wood films that Monster Kid Radio listeners might enjoy. This wasn't the first time Derek and Joe had appeared on a podcast together, but it was the first time they actually recorded a back-and-forth conversation for a show. Before diving into the "actual" recording session for Episodes 79 and 80, they warmed up with this informal conversation.

Monster Kid Radio #081 - Apparently, everyone (including Tom Biegler) thinks Beverly Garland is pretty in The Alligator People

Even though a couple of doctors seem quite taken with Beverly Garland's appearance in The Alligator People (dir. Roy Del Ruth), the film has a lot more going for it than that! Returning guest Tom Biegler joins Derek to talk about this 20th Century Fox film from 1959 that seems to have all the trappings of a Universal monster movie from the early 50s! Lon Chaney, Jr., makes a splash in the film . . . and not just because he's in the swamp with the alligators! Additionally, the Rondo Award nominations were announced this week, and Monster Kid Radio is on the ballot! Finally, Derek makes an announcement at the end of this episode.

Monster Kid Radio #079 - The career and films of Edward D. Wood, Jr., with Joe Blevins

Outside of the standards (Plan 9 From Outer Space, Bride of the Monster, etc.) or what he saw in the 1994 movie, Derek doesn't know much about Ed Wood . . . but he knows someone who does. Writer Joe Blevins joins Monster Kid Radio to talk about the career of Edward D. Wood, Jr., the path he took to get to Hollywood in the first place, and some of the truly artistic elements of Wood's films. They also look at what the Tim Burton film Ed Wood got right and got wrong. Listen carefully, and you'll hear Joe compare some aspects of a Wood-written film to Tchaikovsky.

Monster Kid Radio #078 - The Cosmic Creature is coming! Are you ready?

Filmmaker Dennis Vincent is a man on a mission . . . to make a film inspired by the 1967 "not-so-classic" Night Fright (dir. James A. Sullivan). In this episode of Monster Kid Radio, Dennis and Derek talk about Dennis' upcoming film The Cosmic Creature. The film's leads have been cast. Locations have been scouted. Music has been secured. Dennis is determined to make this movie, and if his enthusiasm doesn't rub off on you, the cosmic creature must have already gotten you!

Monster Kid Radio #077 - Meet monster kid filmmaker Dennis Vincent!

In 1967, Sheriff Clint Crawford (played by John Agar, one of the patron saints of Monster Kid Radio) saved a small Texas town from a mutant monster running amok in Night Fright (dir. James A. Sullivan). In 2013, a similar mutant monster will take another crack at the earth, and filmmaker Dennis Vincent aims to tell that tale. This week on Monster Kid Radio, Derek welcomes Dennis to the podcast to talk about his background, his previous work on the documentaries The Witch's Dungeon: 40 Years of Chills and The Aurora Monsters: The Model Craze That Gripped the World, and his upcoming movie inspired by Night Fright called The Cosmic Creature.

(The cover art for Monster Kid Radio Episode #077 is a picture of the sculpt of the upcoming "cosmic creature," and is used by permission of Dennis Vincent.)

Monster Kid Radio #076 - Watch Out! Monster Kid Radio Crashes Santo vs. the Martian Invasion

The latest Monster Kid Radio Crash happened last week at the Hollywood Theatre, and not even invading martians could keep us away! Derek was joined by Ray Jelinek, Chris McMillan (The Shadow Over Portland), Tom Daufel, and Rick Myers (The Recovering Ubergeek), and they watched Santo el Enmascarado de Plata vs 'La invasión de los marcianos' (dir. Alfredo B. Crevenna), aka Santo vs. the Martian Invasion. But that wasn't all! As part of the Cinescopio film series, the gang was able to watch the short documentary Viva Lucha Libre (dir. Brad Bemis) as part of the double feature that evening.

Monster Kid Radio #074 - Daniel Horne and the Fairy Tale Threads of Frankenstein

Do you know who loves the classic Universal monster movies (aside from Derek)? Artist, sculptor, and easily one of the nicest guys you'll meet at a monster convention Daniel Horne. When he's not creating one of his beautiful monster portraits or sculpting a gorgeous monster mask, Daniel watches these movies on a screen he's set up on one wall of his studio. In fact, he told Derek off mic that he actually had The Ghost of Frankenstein playing in the background while they talked about this film, their mutual appreciation for all the skilled men and women who worked to create these movies, and the fairy tale quality of all the classic Universal monster films.
