Jeff and I travel through time and space one last time this summer as we visit the Riviera Drive-In in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in November 1977! In episode 60 of the Classic Horrors Club Podcast, the monsters are on the revolt and the world is on the brink of destruction as we watch Godzilla vs. the Cosmic Monster (1974) (aka Godzilla vs. the Bionic Monster aka Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla), Kingdom of the Spiders (1977) and Night of the Damned (1973) (aka Messiah of Evil).
Along the way, we welcome our dear friend and kaiju expert Jonathan Angarola, revel in the awesomeness of one of the best “nature gone wild” films, and dive deep into the fascinating making-of story of an unintentional horror classic.
We highly recommend you also check out the video companion on our YouTube channel. It contains content (movie clips, bonus features, and outtakes) from the audio podcast that you don’t want to miss!

Tune in next month as we plan on having a satanic September with a triple feature of Brotherhood of Satan (1971), The Devil’s Rain (1975) and Race with the Devil (1975)! And yes, we’ll be returning to the drive-in once again next summer!
This week on episode 729 of the Dread Media Podcast, I’m back with another trip to the theater. This time, I had a chance to see an advance screening of The Suicide Squad (2021). Yes, it’s another entry in the overly convoluted DC Extended Universe but I actually enjoyed this one from director James Gunn. And yes, it’s absolutely crazy but that’s part of the fun. Tune in for my thoughts and, as always, tell ’em Monster Movie Kid sent ya!
Once again, We Belong Dead has released another amazing book, A Pictorial History of Hammer Horror. With over 450 pages in full color, this instant classic includes essays on all of the Hammer horror movies, from Mystery of the Mary Celeste (1935) with Bela Lugosi to The Lodge (2019).
My dear friend and podcasting-partner-in-crime Jeff Owens has once again contributed two articles, this time on two films not often talked about but well worth a second look, The Old Dark House (1963) and Creatures the World Forgot (1971). Jeff is a true historian of cinema and his insights into these films are well worth the purchase alone.
Add in an amazing cover by the incredible artist Mark Maddox (I have several of his prints gracing walls in my home) and this is sure to be another sold out item. So, hurry over to their website and order your copy today. You can choose either a hardcover or softcover edition, either one will look fantastic in your personal library. And don’t forget, tell ’em Monster Movie Kid sent ya!
As many of us begin to peak outside and return to our local cinema, our options are still a little limited. However, when I saw that M. Night Shyamalan was back with a new flick called Old, an adaptation of the graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre-Oscar Levy and Frederick Peeters, I figured it was worth checking out. So, my podcasting brother-from-another-mother Jeff Owens and I took a trip to see what Old had to offer.
So, I’m back on Dread Media in episode 728 to share my thoughts and, just maybe, give everyone a fair warning and save you a dollar or two. And, as always, tell ’em Monster Movie Kid sent ya!
