Let's celebrate Ray Harryhausen's 100th birthday with Kenny and his special Classic Five look at The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (dir. Gordon Hessler). We'll also learn how many times Kenny met the legendary filmmaker and storyteller . . . and how he did it! (And later this week during our regularly scheduled episode of Monster Kid Radio, Kenny has a special Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland about The Golden Voyage of Sinbad!)
We've got a double dose of kaiju action this week on Monster Kid Radio! First, Kyle Yount drops by to talk with Derek about the upcoming virtual event Kaiju Con-Line. There's no G-Fest this year, but Kaiju Con-Line is looking to scratch that kaiju festival itch! Then, author Anthony Wendel discusses one of the coolest submarine movies you'll ever see - 1965's Atragon (dir. Ishirō Honda). There's also Listener Feedback, a musical . . . interlude (?), and Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.
We may not get to see him in person over what would have been this summer's Monster Bash weekend, but we can hear from Ron Adams when he joins Derek on Monster Kid Radio this week. The Monster Bash Conference is the highlight of the year for so many monster kids, and even though the event had to be cancelled this year, there are still ways to connect with, and support, the Monster Bash. And, as always, we have Kenny's Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.
Derek's been sitting on The Colossus of New York (dir. Eugène Lourié) for a while now (there's a reason for that, and it gets mentioned in this episode). When The Haunted Cinema's Todd Brown suggested discussing this movie on Monster Kid Radio, Derek decided to finally give it a go! This is a little movie that asks some big questions, and - SPOILER ALERT! - it's GOOD. Kenny also brings his world-renowned Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland, and Derek gives you a look ahead at this weekend's Social Distance Saturday streaming/screening/screaming.
We don't talk about Val Lewton enough on Monster Kid Radio. Let's fix that this week with Paul McComas joins Derek to talk about one of the Karloff-Lewton films - 1945's Isle of the Dead (dir. Mark Robson). And, of course, Kenny presents his Look at Famous Monsters of Filmland.
