Monster Kid Radio

This week's movie might have had several different names, but it stars the one and only Bela Lugosi! We're calling it My Son, the Vampire (dir. John Gilling) here on Monster Kid Radio this week when Taylor Gentry joins Derek to talk about this Lugosi . . . comedy? And if that's not enough, Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland also tackles the film! Mark Matzke's Beta Capsule Review continues through the original Ultra Q, and we've even got some Listener Feedback this week.

Will YOU get lost in The Maze (dir. William Cameron Menzies) with Derek and this week's guest, Jonathan Inbody? The only way to find out is to listen to this week's episode! When Jonathan isn't producing his X Meets Y Podcast, he's writing, he's making movies, and he's coming up with interesting takes on just-as-interesting movies like this week's film. Also this week we have Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland, and a Beta Capsule Review from podcaster/writer/kaiju kid Mark Matzke!

Monster Kid Radio

David J. Skal (http://www.monstershow.net/) is someone whose name should not be unfamiliar to monster kids. He's a film historian. He's an author. He's a documentary producer. And he's one of us. The newest book from David J. Skal is Fright Favorites: 31 Movies to Haunt Your Halloween and Beyond, and it's available NOW.

Monster Kid Radio

It's about time for another doctor visit, and Monster Kid Radio has you covered! Dr. Gangrene - aka Larry Underwood - joins Derek this week to discuss his upcoming movie Tales from Parts Unknown. It's an anthology film, kind of like the movie they discuss this week - 1973's The Vault of Horror (dir. Roy Ward Baker). We also have Listener Feedback and Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland, as well as a visit with author Stephen D. Sullivan about his upcoming book Dr. Cushing’s Chamber of Horrors!

Monster Kid Radio

One of Derek's favorite things about producing Monster Kid Radio is when he gets to watch a new-to-him monster movie. That is exactly what happened this week when author David Annandale returns to the podcast with The Flesh Eaters (dir. Jack Curtis). There are so many elements coming together in this movie - the creator of DC Comics' Doom Patrol, a "Speed Racer" voice actor, an actor with a decidedly German accent believably playing an American, mad science, creatures, and shocking blood.

Monster Kid Radio

How has Monster Kid Radio gone over 480 episodes and NOT covered 1943's Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (dir. Roy William Neill)?!? Let's correct that this week with special guest Ricardo Delgado! Ricardo and Derek discuss this iconic film, break down WHY it's iconic, and how it influenced the course of the rest of the monster movies to come after it. On top of that, Kenny also has another amazing Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland this week!

Monster Kid Radio

Not every monster kid movie maker saved the movies they made with their friends when they were a kid, but Rob Hampton did, and we're better for it! Rob is the co-director of Super 8 Daze (with co-director John Morgan), and this week, he joins Derek for a conversation about his background, his career, and much more. Kenny also has his Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland, and it's also time to announce, and thank, July's Patreon Executive Producers.

Monster Kid Radio

This week, David Heath steps out of Dave's Corner of the Universe and onto Monster Kid Radio to join Derek to talk about one of their favorite writers - Robert E. Howard. How is this relevant to Monster Kid Radio? Howard's story "Pigeons from Hell" was adapted for television, directed by John Newland, and was introduced by one of MKR's Patron Saints - Boris Karloff. We have Listener Feedback as well, plus Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.

Disney, Indiana's Tracey Morris steps outside the House of the Mouse this week for a stop by Monster Kid Radio to discuss 1940's The Invisible Woman (dir. A. Edward Sutherland). What do they see in this film? Insert obvious joke about not being able to see anything here. Kenny also returns this week with a special Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.
