Monster Party (general)

Yes MONSTER PARTY fans, it's true!

With help from the ghost of H.P. LOVECRAFT; the tentacled god CTHULHU; and a forbidden incantation from the pages of the NECRONOMICON; our humble podcast has been graced by legendary film director and all around great guy... STUART GORDON!!! 

Mr. Gordon has made such game changing horror films as Re-Animator, From Beyond, Dolls, Dagon and a host of others that any true fan of the genre should know!

Join JMAES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, as they try to keep it together while talking to one of their horror film heroes.

Get ready for a personal journey through Stuart's fascinating career and lots of behind the scenes stories, including shopping for fetish wear with the lovely BARBARA CRAMPTON, and what wasn't included in the theatrical release of "From Beyond". You can also get the latest info about where and when you can see Re-Animator: The Musical! Yes, it's a freakin' MUSICAL and it's fantasic! So listen!

Yog-Sothoth commands you!

Wipe away those post-Halloween blues with another electrifying episode of MONSTER PARTY!

Accompany JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, as they take a steamy excursion into SEX, HORROR, and the amazing world of JEWEL SHEPARD!

The eternally gorgeous Ms. Shepard has starred in such MONSTER PARTY favorites as “Hollywood Hot Tubs” and the horror/comedy classic “The Return of the Living Dead”, and brings her provocative, stream of consciousness style to this risqué soiree. Along with sexy horror talk, hear Jewel’s tales of bowling with Phil Spector, Herschell Gordon Lewis’ garage, and why some breasts require a coaster! 

We know…we had you at “coaster”.

MONSTER PARTY has scheduled you a FRIGHT PHYSICAL!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, have laced up their labcoats and started tampering with the laws of man and God! The topic is... MAD DOCTORS!!! Those twisted scientists whose theories are always the cause of laughter at the academy. But to be fair, the gang at the academy are easy laughers.

Aiding in this abominable audio experiment is writer/director (MONSTER MAKERS, SANTA JR.) and fellow podcaster (SUCCOTASH:THE COMEDY PODCAST PODCAST) MARC HERSHON, a man still wanted for questioning by his hometown's burgermeister.

Listen in as they dissect the questionable parenting skills of Victor Frankenstein, the attempts of Marlon Brando to save/destroy "The Island of Doctor Moreau", the sweet, sweet sounds of RE-ANIMATOR: THE MUSICAL (Seriously!), and why "The Human Centipede" may not be for everyone. And by everyone, that means Larry.

Get ready to slam back a triple shot of sexy, followed by a super scary chaser! It's the return of MONSTER PARTY!

The hotness of this podcast finally reaches its boiling point as JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, are graced by the delightful and dazzling presence of Playboy's 2013 Playmate of the Year... RAQUEL POMPLUN! That's right... THE PLAYMATE OF THE FRICKIN' YEAR!

MONSTER PARTY has a horror hootenanny coming your way because this time, the subject is... BACKWOODS PSYCHOS! And who better to help us face these murderous mountain menaces than our second guest, writer/director/producer of the upcoming horror spectacular, MUCK (FYI: Raquel has already been cast for the sequel), STEVE WOLSH! Prepare yourself for chainsaw massacres, hills that have eyes, Ned Beatty's famous animal impressions, and the reason why most Monster Partiers tend to avoid camping.

Listen, for Muck's sake!

MONSTER PARTY once again wreaks havoc on the ears of the living with this new episode, saluting those sherpas of shock, the heroes of horrific hyjinks... HORROR HOSTS!!!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, welcome the multi-talented JOHN MATTA, to praise such praiseworthy late night iconoclasts as Vampira, Chilly Billy, Zacherley, Bob Wilkins, John Stanley, Elvira, Count Floyd, Peter Vincent (Friiight Niiiight!) Ghoulardi, The Ghoul, Svengoolieand even Dana Ghould! Well, that's the way he should spell it.

Of course they talk about a host of other hosts, but may have have missed your favorite. Why not give this show a listen and then get mad at them? Anger is power! Ask Larry and Matt!

For this somewhat personal, and rather intoxicated episode of MONSTER PARTY, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, reveal their horror/sci-fi fan "origin stories"!

Find out what turned four apparently normal kids into the raving, die-hard nerds they are today. Shriek in terror at stories of creative sibling abuse! Listen in shock to tales of sex, drugs, rock n' roll, and the horror of living in a world without ebay! And can your heart handle James describing the day Woody Allen challenged Godzilla?!

It probably can.

Yes, there is something wrong with your television set. It's scaring the HELL out of you!

In this episode of MONSTER PARTY, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, raise a glass to... HORROR TV!!! 

But what would this Monster Party be without our special guest (and designated driver), voice actor royalty and everything cool expert... WALLY WINGERT!

Wally's worked on almost every cartoon/video game you can think of, and for years was the voice of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"! This time, he's using all his vocal skills to get a word in edgewise as we celebrate such TV frights as The Night Gallery, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Dark Shadows, The Walking Dead, and a bunch of 1970's TV movies you're about to be very happy we're turning you on to.

Oh, and there's some arguing.

Get your stinkin’ ears listening, you damn dirty humans!

This jam packed new episode of MONSTER PARTY is all about... PLANET OF THE APES! 

Talking humans JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, welcome back our comedy Lawgiver and “Apes” expert supreme... DANA GOULD (STAN AGAINST EVIL, THE SIMPSONS, SUPER ADVENTURE TEAM, MOB CITY), and knock back a few rounds of “grape juice plus”!

Get ready for behind the scenes mayhem, Dana’s audience with CHARLTON HESTON, how the ending of “Beneath” f**ked us all up, and why James would have ruined “Dawn”!

IT’S A MADHOUSE… in the sense that we record this in a house and people often get angry.

COMIC CON 2014: ANYTHING GOES!!!

For this special 2014 SAN DIEGO INTERNATIONAL COMIC CON podcast, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, throw the rules out the window and let demon booze decide where the conversation goes! It's... ANYTHING GOES!!!

We don't want to give away too much but let's just say that the film, FREE ENTERPRISE, is revealed to be a malevolent force, capable of destroying friendships. And don't get us started on THE BIG BANG THEORY. Oops, too late!

Get ready for one of strangest MONSTER PARTY podcasts ever!

The topic is TIME TRAVEL and JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, and MATT WEINHOLD, welcome super comedian and THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN staple, JAKE JOHANNSEN, to explore the complexities of the time/space/booze continuum. Sadly, LARRY STROTHE could not join us (due to some good natured tampering with his time line that temporarily erased him from existence), but filling in is Matt’s lovely, intelligent and opinionated wife, CAROLYN WEINHOLD.

After imbibing copious amounts of an experimental vodka, the conversation covers the greatest time travel films, whether Jake is actually female and from the future, and what exactly is a “taint”?
