Monster Kid Radio

Stephen D. Sullivan really likes The Son of Kong (dir. Ernest B. Schoedsack), and as his discussion about the film with Derek continues, you'll find out why! There are a number of successes present in the film (Robert Armstrong turns in a performance that rivals his performance in King Kong, Willis H. O'Brien's stop motion work is better than it has any rate to be considering the stress he was under at the time, and Max Steiner's score is just as moving as his work in the previous film) that makes The Son of Kong an underrated gem.

Monster Kid Radio #071 - The Son of Kong and Stephen D. Sullivan - Part One

Author and monster kid Stephen D. Sullivan (the madman behind The Tournament of Death 3) returns to Monster Kid Radio to talk about a classic sequel that doesn't get nearly enough love - The Son of Kong (dir. Ernest B. Schoedsack). Released just nine months after the original King Kong, The Son of Kong follows what happened to filmmaker and showman Carl Denham after the Eighth Wonder of the world had his way with New York City. Here's a hint? Denham is on nobody's favorite persons list . . . except for Derek and Steve. They love him in this movie!

Long Live the King - The Legacy of Kong is the new documentary coming from Benevolent Monster Productions, and in this episode of Monster Kid Radio, Frank Dietz tells us how YOU can help support the film! Long Live the King is promising to be one of the year's best monster kid-centric documentaries, and Derek is excited to share the rest of his chat with Frank about the project. Also in this episode, Derek reviews some Listener Feedback, and because we've hit more than 35 reviews in the iTunes store, we announce what new special show will be added to your Monster Kid Radio experience (which will launch once we hit 50 honest reviews in the iTunes store).

Monster Kid Radio #069 - A chat with Frank Dietz (Beast Wishes, Long Live the King) Part One & Stephen D. Sullivan's Tournament of Death

Join the crowd and join Monster Kid Radio this week to talk about two upcoming crowd-funded projects! First, artist/actor/screenwriter/filmmaker Frank Dietz joins Derek in Part One of an interview on MKR to talk a little bit about his career and background. (If you listen carefully, you might hear Derek's heart skip a beat when Frank talks about working with Julie Adams.) Frank's previous documentary Beast Wishes (which he co-directed with Trish Geiger in 2013) takes a loving look at Bob and Kathy Burns (two of the original monster kids!), and this year, he's tackling King Kong with Long Live the King - The Legacy of Kong. Secondly, returning guest Stephen D. Sullivan tells us how crazy he is when he enters Tournament of Death 3, a novel he's writing in 16 days over the course of the Winter Olympics. (Can you guess what Steve's favorite Winter Olympic sport is? Can you guess Derek's?)

Monster Kid Radio #068 - King Kong with Chris McMillan

Derek takes Monster Kid Radio back in time to one of the first Monster Kid Radio Crash events - last year's screening of the original King Kong (dir. Merian C. Cooper) at the Hollywood Theatre. Chris McMillan was also there, so he and Derek spent some time before and after the screening to talk about their history with the film and their overall thoughts. We also hear from one of our listeners/future guests about a . . . unique Kickstarter project he has in the works.

Monster Kid Radio #066 - Monster Kid Radio Crashes El Santo vs Las Momias de Guanajuato - The Panel

After the movie (El Santo vs Las Momias de Guanajuato (dir. Federico Curiel) - go check out the previous episode to hear Derek and company's response to the screening), Cinescopio presented a panel featuring John Cárdenas and Enrique Caizero discussing the film, the lucha libre's time and place in Mexican culture, and what lucha libre continues to offer fans today. It was a fun and lively discussion, and hopefully will leave you wanting more (it definitely left Derek and company having a hard time waiting until the next El Santo film in the Cinescopio series next month at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon.

Monster Kid Radio #065 - Monster Kid Radio Crashes El Santo vs Las Momias de Guanajuato - Part One

Last week, Monster Kid Radio crashed a screening of El Santo vs Las Momias de Guanajuato (dir. Federico Curiel) at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon. Derek brought his recorder, and met up with frequest Monster Kid Radio guests Chris McMillan and Ray Jelinek . . . and had a BLAST. In Part One of MKR's coverage of the screening, Derek and company talk about their expectations of the film going into the screening, thrill to exploits of El Santo and company, marvel at the parenting skills of Blue Demon, and wish they could get it done in the ring like Mil Máscaras.

Monster Kid Radio #063 - Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff and Joe Stuber - Part One

Joe Stuber is back with the boys to talk with Derek about Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff (dir. Charles Barton). Joe first appeared on Monster Kid Radio last July (Episode 015 & Episode 016) to talk about the first Bud and Lou monster romp, and since then he and Derek have decided to tackle the rest of the Abbott and Costello Meet... films. In 1949, they found themselves mixed up in a murder mystery involving Boris Karloff and six other potential killers, and from the sounds of it, Lou Costello himself barely survived the experience!
