Monster Kid Radio

Kong: Long Live the King (dir. Frank Dietz, Trish Geiger) is making the festival and convention rounds, and Derek was able to attend the Portland premiere at the Hollywood Theatre. What did Derek think of the documentary? Well, he liked it, but you'll get to hear just HOW MUCH he liked it this week on Monster Kid Radio. After the screening, organizer Greg Hamilton led a Q&A session with Frank Dietz and special effects artist Chris Walas. Also earlier this week, the ballot for the 15th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Films Awards was announced, and Monster Kid Radio is honored to on the ballot this year for Best Multi-Media Horror Site. A number of previous MKR guests also made the ballot this year, and you'll who about them this week. And, finally, Derek was tickled to hear a non-horror podcast tackle a monster kid "classic."

Monster Kid Radio #307 - Frankenstein 1970 with Dwight Kemper

This week, Monster Kid Radio gets futuristic . . . sort of . . . when Derek is joined by guest Dwight Kemper to discuss the film Frankenstein 1970 (dir. Howard W. Koch). Boris Karloff returns to a Frankenstein movie, but not as the monster. This time, Karloff plays the monster's creator! Listen to this episode to find out why this movie is so important to Dwight and his development as a monster kid. (And when you're done listening to this episode, be sure to check out Dwight's books!) Plus, you'll hear listener feedback and more movie trailers and radio ads than you probably care to hear (but Derek loves them and he can't help himself!).

(And you can find Derek at this weekend's Wizard World Portland, along with friends of the show Sean Hoade and Tom Daufel!)

Monster Kid Radio #305 - Mad Monster Party? with Joe Stuber + Feedback

Biff! Bam! Pow! Joe Stuber from Comic Book Central (http://www.comicbookcentral.net) returns to Monster Kid Radio this week to discuss the 1967 film Mad Monster Party? (dir. Jules Bass). This Rankin/Bass production has it all – monsters, music, great character design, and Boris Karloff! What more could a monster kid want? Before they get into the movie, though, Derek reviews some recent listener emails.

Monster Kid Radio #304 - Space Probe Taurus with Stephen D. Sullivan

Stephen D. Sullivan takes a break from http://cushinghorrors.com/ to join Derek for a conversation about Space Probe Taurus (dir. Leonard Katzman). They both saw the movie thanks to the television channel Comet, and you'll get to hear whether or not it was worth the space it took on their DVRs! Somehow, the conversation turned into a commercial for two of our favorite independent retro filmmakers - Christopher R. Mihm and Joshua Kennedy! Before wrapping up this week's episode, Derek reflects on the Ultraman double feature he recently attended at the Hollywood Theatre.

Monster Kid Radio #301 - Meet Monster Kid David Schecter

Let's start the New Year with a new voice on Monster Kid Radio! This week, Derek is joined by author, Rondo award winner, and monster kid David Schecter. David is the mastermind behind Monstrous Movie Music, a label responsible for making all monster kid ears smile with soundtrack releases for some of the best 1950s monster movies around.
