Monster Kid Radio #052 - Cheesy B-Movies with Tom Biegler, Part One

Quick! Get some wine to go with this week's cheese! This week on Monster Kid Radio, Derek is joined by returning guest and sculptor Tom Biegler for a discussion of our favorite cheesy monster movies. We love 'em, but let's be honest. There's a solid layer of cheese on some of these flicks, which is a testament to the film's worth because we wouldn't love them any other way! During their discussion, John Agar is mentioned a few times (John Agar Rules!), and Derek tends to sidetrack a bit, but Tom keeps him on course. (And don't forget our 50-Review Challenge!)

Monster Kid Radio #051 - Scott & Tracey Morris' Monster Mania, Part Two

Last month, Scott and Tracey Morris left Disney, Indiana for a monster-filled weekend at the Historic Artcraft Theatre in Franklin, Indiana. The event? Monster Mania. The movies? The Invisible Man (dir. James Whale), The Mummy (dir. Karl Freund), Frankenstein (dir. James Whale), and Creature from the Black Lagoon (dir. Jack Arnold). The host of this podcast? EXTREMELY jealous. Most of these movies were movies neither Scott nor Tracey had seen before seeing them at the Artcraft, and in Part Two of their Monster Mania debrief, they'll share their first time thoughts about these films and they even put up with Derek gushing about Creature...! Also, Derek reminds listeners how they can enter the drawing for the original sculpt of the Island of Terror silicates created and donated by previous Monster Kid Radio guest Tom Biegler. (And don't forget our 50-Review Challenge!)

Last month, Scott and Tracey Morris (the high high-muckety-mucks of Disney, Indiana and returning guests to Monster Kid Radio) went to the Artcraft Theater's Monster Mania event in Franklin, Indiana.

George Waggner). Also in this week's episode, Derek reminds listeners how they can enter the drawing for the original sculpt of the Island of Terror silicates created and donated by previous Monster Kid Radio guest Tom Biegler.

Monster Kid Radio #048 - Paul McComas Walked with a Zombie, Part One

He's back on Monster Kid Radio, and this time, he brought a zombie with him . . . or did he? Author Paul McComas (Fit for a Frankenstein, Planet of the Dates, Unforgettable: Harrowing Futures, Horrors, & (Dark) Humor) joins Derek to talk about the Val Lewton 1943 classic I Walked with a Zombie (dir. Jacques Tourneur). Derek's background as a former zombie movie podcaster has brought him in contact with this movie before, and Paul's love of voodoo films has made I Walked with a Zombie a mainstay in their DVD players, and in Part One of their chat about the film, you'll find out why.

We return to the Island of Terror (dir. Terence Fisher) with guest Tom Biegler for Part Two of our discussion of this British sci-fi horror . . . can we call it a classic? Yes, I think we can! In addition to concluding our talk about the film, Tom also shares more about his artistic process, and we announe a new contest in which YOU can win an original diorama featuring the silicates from Island of Terror (thanks, Tom, for creating and donating this one-of-a-kind sculpture!).

Monster Kid Radio #044 - Tom Biegler and the Island of Terror, Part One

Monster kid and sculptor Tom Biegler returns to Monster Kid Radio this week, and he's bringing a couple of silicates with him! (That's his sculpture in the episode image!) Before Monster Kid Radio was launched, Tom showed Derek a movie called Island of Terror (dir. Terence Fisher), and that movie quickly became one of Derek's favorite non-Hammer Peter Cushing films. Tom not only introduced Derek to this amazing movie, but he's also about to share another amazing piece of original art with one lucky Monster Kid Radio listener! That's his diorama sculpt in the episode image this time around.
