Monster Kid Radio #351 - Curse of the Crimson Altar with Stephen D. Sullivan

In mid-2017, author Stephen D. Sullivan joined Derek for a conversation about an underrated and under-served Karloff-Lee-Steele film. This is that recording. But not only do you get a conversation between Steve and Derek about 1968's Curse of the Crimson Altar (dir. Vernon Sewell), you'll get some insight about the kinds of movies they truly love watching, what kinds of expectations they bring to the table when they watch a classic (or not-so-classic) film, and what mid-80s slasher movie...

Monster Kid Radio #350 - Day the World Ended with Joseph Schultz

Effects artist Joseph Schultz joins Derek this week on Monster Kid Radio ostensibly to discuss the 1955 film Day the World Ended (dir. Roger Corman). And they do . . . but they also discuss practical effects vs. CGI effects, his being a monster kid father, and the upcoming Carl Denham's Giant Monster. The two of them have a lot to talk about (and they didn't even really touch too much on the Backstreet Boys!), but they do make time for a round of the Classic Five. Voicemail: 503-479-5MKR...

Monster Kid Radio #349 - The Gorgon with Joshua Kennedy and Stephen D. Sullivan PLUS Veronica Carlson

Lots to get to this week, so hang on tight! Derek takes you back to this past summer's Monster Bash for two interviews - one with legendary actress Veronica Carlson, and one with filmmaker Joshua Kennedy about the Monster Bash premiere of his latest movie Theseus and the Minotaur.

Troy Howarth returns to the podcast this week, and takes Derek on a trip to The Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism (dir. Harald Reinl).

Also, this past Wednesday night, Derek went to Weird Wednesday at the Joy Cinema for a screening of Terror Beneath the Sea (dir. Hajime Sato), and pointed his recorder at Jeff Polier and Dominique Lamssies for their thoughts on the film....

Monster Kid Radio #347 - Caltiki, The Immortal Monster with Chris McMillan AND The Monster Kid Chronicles by Timothy Price

Last week, the Monster Kid Radio 2017 Holiday Gift Guide was revealed, and one of the items on the gift guide was the movie Caltiki, The Immortal Monster (dir. Mario Bava, Riccardo Freda). It made the guide because The Shadow Over Portland's Chris McMillan recommended it, so it only seemed fair to have him on the show this week to talk about the movie itself. We also hear a bit about his experience at a recent screening of Suspiria (dir. Dario Argento), and there's a VERY slight tease...

Monster Kid Radio #345 - The Creeping Flesh and Dan Day, Jr.

1973's The Creeping Flesh (dir. Freddie Francis) is on deck this week, as is Dan Day, Jr., the man behind The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog.

Monster Kid Radio #344 - Andrew Roebuck and Gamera/Gammera

There's another new voice this week on Monster Kid Radio this week when Bloody Good Horror's Andrew Roebuck joins Derek to talk about everybody's favorite giant turtle. But which version of the original Gamera do they tackle? BOTH OF THEM! Gamera: The Giant Monster (dir. Noriaki Yuasa) and Gammera the Invincible (dir. Sandy Howard, Noriaki Yuasa) are decidedly different films . . . or are they? Listen to this episode to find out. Also, Jeff Polier calls in his thoughts on last October's...

Monster Kid Radio #343 - The Woman Eater with Micah S. Harris

Author Micah S. Harris joins Monster Kid Radio this week, and he's bringing The Woman Eater (dir. Charles Saunders) with him. This 1958 film is the main topic of conversation, but that's not all Micah and Derek talk about this week on the podcast. We'll learn a bit about Micah's background as a monster kid and writer, what interesting . . . creature . . . he had for a pet as a kid, and, of course, he plays a round of the Classic Five. Also this week, Derek has just a few words to say about...

The Terror from Beyond Space's influence on Alien, and...

You get a fun chat with guest Tom Biegler about the 1970 film Horror of the Blood Monsters (dir. Al Adamson). This was a first time viewing for Derek, so it was a real treat to talk about this movie with a long time fan. Also, there's feedback. A contest. An announcement. Download the show . . .

Monster Kid Radio #335 - The Witch's Curse with Chris McMillan

Sword and Sandals and Monsters Month continues on Monster Kid Radio with the conversation Derek and guest Chris McMillan started last week with Hercules Against the Moon Men (dir. Giacomo Gentilomo). That movie was released on DVD as a double feature with this week's movie - The Witch's Curse (dir. Riccardo Freda) - so it made sense (to Derek at least!) to keep the dialogue between podcaster and Shadow-Over-Portland-er going for this week's episode. Also, we want to know where you live!...
