Flashback February 2020 continues this week as Derek and a guest revisit a film previous discussed on Monster Kid Radio. This time, Derek's sister-in-law Loree joins him to start a club to go fight monsters. 1987's The Monster Squad (dir. Fred Dekker) is an incredible love letter to the monster movies of the past, and it just happens to be a favorite film of both Derek and Loree. Kenny takes a Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland and discovers some movies not yet covered on MKR.

Week One of Flashback February begins with a return to a hands-down-no-doubt-about-it-bonafide classic film - Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (dir. Charles Barton). It's been several years since Monster Kid Radio has visited this film, and Scott Morris was up to the task to join Derek for this return. We heard what we heard when we heard it!

To close out The Satanic Rites of January, Derek is joined by longtime contributor and even longer time friend Chris McMillan. Chris is the mastermind behind The Shadow Over Portland, so you know he knows what he's talking about, especially when it comes to 1975's The Devil's Rain (dir. Robert Fuest). This movie was also covered back in the day in the pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, and Kenny's going to break that down for us.

Saddle up! This week's installment of The Satanic Rites of January brings us to the land of Hammer Films when author Frank Schildiner joins Derek to discuss the film The Devil Rides Out (dir. Terence Fisher). And to introduce this week's episode, Derek's niece Lexi Deluxe took over the microphone! Professor Frenzy has a Bedtime Story, and Kenny has a Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland. Let's ride!

The movie that inspired this month's theme is on deck this week! The Satanic Rites of Dracula (dir. Alan Gibson) gets the Monster Kid radio treatment with returning guest Alistair Hughes. The last time Alistair was on the show was when he discussed Dracula A.D. 1972 (dir. Alan Gibson), and this week's film is a direct sequel to that film. How does it compare? Does it stand alone as it is?

The second week of The Satanic Rites of January brings one of the most devilish of guests to the podcast - Scott Morris from Disney, Indiana. Scott and Derek discuss a movie Scott saw for the first time at a Monster Bash - The Black Cat (dir. Edgar G. Ulmer). Derek has some other business to go over, Professor Frenzy has a Bedtime Story, and Kenny has a Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.

Monster Kid Radio brings in the new year with a new monthly theme - The Satanic Rites of January! This week, Derek is joined by author/game designer/ Kenneth Hite to discuss one of Val Lewton's most affecting films - 1943's The Seventh Victim (dir. Mark Robson). This one gets dark, and we can't think of a better way to start this month's devilish theme. Of course, the good Professor Frenzy has a Bedtime Story for everyone, and Kenny takes a somber look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.

Last weekend was the 2014 H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon, and Monster Kid Radio was there! For three days, Lovecraft fans took over Portland's Hollywood Theatre for feature films, short movies, author readings and signings, panel discussions, madness-inducing parties...so basically just a really good time! Derek was a small part of the show this year as he was asked to introduce the 1968 film Curse of the Crimson Altar (dir. Vernon Sewell), as well as participate in one of the panels. Between events, Derek caught up with old and new friends, and in this episode of Monster Kid Radio, you'll hear some of those conversations. First, Derek spoke with author David Agranoff about his recent books (Boot Boys of the Wolf Reich, Hunting the Moon Tribe) and where you might find a horror host or monster influence in them. Then, Derek spoke two composers whose work has had a home on his iPod for years - Troy Sterling Nies and Reber Clark. They're two of the four composers behind the excellent album Out of the Aeons: Music for a New Dark Age. Finally, Derek checks in with Monster Kid Radio regulars Ray Jelinek and Chris McMillan for their thoughts on this year's festival.
