Monster Party

MONSTER PARTY learns how to make a monster! Turns out, it takes more than grain alcohol!

In this new creature creating episode, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, get a crash course in MONSTER MAKING by diabolical genius MARK TAVARES!

Mark has worked with such fear factories as KNB, DON POST STUDIOS, and he even made the puppets for the classic MTV Thunderbirds parody SUPER ADVENTURE TEAM... the brainchild of SIMPSONS alumni DANA GOULD and ROB COHEN!

In addition to a heaping helping of monster recipes, enjoy tales of pig-faced women, waffled faced police chiefs, tantalizing toxic chemicals and STEVEN SEAGAL'S secret fear!

After listening to this episode, go forth and create a monster army of your own! That would be friggin' awesome, right?

MONSTER PARTY is back. and getting a bit nostalgic!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD dust off their Members Only shrouds and take a look back at a golden age of horror and science fiction films...THE 1980s!

Tearing down the Berlin Wall of our preconceived ideas is a virtual Mount St. Helens of information and anecdotes, the writer and director of such genre classics as From A Whisper To A Scream (aka The Offspring), Prison, Doctor Mordrid, The Class of 1999, Lurking Fear, and Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge... C. COURTNEY JOYNER!

In this totally tubular episode, we hear what happens when you disturb Vincent Price while he's baking, what it's like work with an actor who has to be to shackled between scenes, and whether actor Richard Lynch and Blade from Puppet Master were separated at birth?

Of course after some chit chat about Battle Beyond The Stars, ET vs. The Thing, Hellraiser, Xtro, Poltergeist, The Evil Dead, A Nightmare of Elm Street, the Friday The 13th films, the legacy of Halloween and more...we barely scratch the surface!

There ain't no party like a MONSTER PARTY...and if there was, it would be destroyed!

This time, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD take on a subject that is close to their undead hearts... MONSTER COLLECTING!

And the only guest that would be appropriate for this episode would be their monster collecting enabler, owner and propreitor of Burbank and the WORLD'S foremost monster store/gallery/fan church Creature Features...TAYLOR WHITE!

Get stoked for some seriously anal retentive discourse concerning the gang's geeky collector wish list, the endless in package vs. out of package debate, whether it's possible to save air from 1970's, and more!

If you love Micronauts, Star Wars toys, Sideshow Toys, Distinctive Dummies, tin robots, and all things creepy, cool, and collectible, this one is for you!

Watch the skies! Look out for giant pea pods! The MONSTER PARTY assimilation continues and YOU'RE NEXT!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, invade the world wide web with this latest podcast, all about... EVIL ALIENS!

And if that wasn't boss enough, joining them on this campaign of intenet conquest is PLAYBOY'S MISS MAY 2014 and admitted Martian spy, the galactically gorgeous... DANI MATHERS!

Of course with a topic like EVIL ALIENS comes a Star Destroyer full of questions! Are the Alien Xenomorphs actually evil? Are the Borg really just buddhists? Why does Dani Mathers know so much about "The Greys"? And just as the talk heats up over Twilight Zone, War of the Worlds, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Predator, They Live, Independence Day, The Thing, and It:The Terror From Beyond Space... someone brings up Prometheus and the fists start swingin' again! What else is new?

Space, the final frontier? Ha! Not unless it’s the space between four sci-fi/horror geeks and their guest on this episode of MONSTER PARTY!

Break out the Tranya, the Bloodwine, and the Romulan ale! It’s the MONSTER PARTY you’ve been waiting for! JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, boldly go where frankly a LOT of people have gone before …the subject of STAR TREK!!!

Accompanying them on their roughly hour and a half mission is Emmy Award winning comedian/writer/producer (The Ellen Degeneres Show, Wanda At Large , Chelsea Lately) SUE MURPHY!

In this often contentious podcast, Sue and the lads discuss how to piss off Klingons at a convention, whether/how much “Voyager” sucks, female empowerment in “Spock’s Brain, the real surprise ending of “First Contact”, the truth behind the "Fek'lhr" bit, and what possibly may be the best William Windom impression ever!

So make it so!

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No...it's just some chem trails. But if you look down at your personal internet machine, you'll see the new episode of MONSTER PARTY!

In this supersized podcast, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, shed their costumes and meet up at "The Hall of Cocktails" for a cataclysmic verbal battle over the subject of... SUPERHEROES!!!

But what would a supergeek mash-up be without a special appearance by critically acclaimed comic book artist/writer/antihero...DARICK ROBERTSON!!! (WOLVERINE, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE BOYS, HAPPY)

Brace yourselves for an opinion shattering conflict that includes such pulse pounding adventures as Batman taking on roadside fruit & vegatable stands, Superman turning a blind eye to pimps, The Hulk on acid, and a walk through the darkly satiric world of Darick Roberstson & Garth Ennis' groundbreaking series, THE BOYS! Not to be confused with the slash fiction version of the same name.

'nuff said!

What better way to scare away the horror that was 2014, and lure in the hopefully less horrible 2015, than with a MONSTER PARTY?!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, wish you all the best in the coming new year. But as we all know, that's a long shot! So to better prepare you for a crappier tomorrow, Monster Party welcomes acclaimed comedian/actor/force of nature, RICK OVERTON, to discuss this episode's topic...DYSTOPION FUTURES! You know, like the one we're living in now!

Future imperfect has never been so perfect for a lively sci-fi debate that includes Robocop's marriage problems, cloak fashion in The Omega Man, some Logan's Run "Love Shop" acapella, and a Bladerunner/Air Force One/Stand And Deliver mash-up that's the bee's knees! Wait, are bees extinct yet?

Happy Dystopian New Year Monster Partiers!

MONSTER PARTY is back with a vengeance! Specifically, a vengeance against that movie you think is great but we don't.

In an enlightening, informative, and inevitably abusive holiday episode called... I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU LIKED THAT!, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, make it clear, they really can't believe you liked that.

But what would a Monster Party podcast about hating things other people like without some lambs to the slaughter. Introducing fresh lambs, power nerd couple NADIA & BEN ROBERTSON, two intelligent, thoughtful, funny people who have the gall to defend the movie PROMETHEUS...and actually do a pretty admirable job. Seriously!

Of course the Robertson's eloquence and charm could not stop the usual verbal piling on....or the physical piling on.

You get that many angry drunks in a room, s**t happens!

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will cheer themselves up with another episode of MONSTER PARTY!

Tempted by the smell of fresh brains and martinis, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, climb out of their graves to take on the undead cultural phenomenom that is ZOMBIES! "But Monster Partiers" you may ask, "can you possibly make this dis-corpse a bit sexier?" To which we answer, "Done!"

MONSTER PARTY is proud to welcome MEGHAN CHADEAYNE and RICKY BIRD, the star and director of the hit short film, NAKED ZOMBIE GIRL! Now if you don't want to see a film with a title like that, something has died in you, and unlike a zombie, it's not coming back. In this episode, the gal and ghouls duke it out over topics like slow zombies vs. fast zombies, zombies vs. farmhouses, why bad things tend to happen when Brad Pitt shows up, and how fighting zombies in the nude can be empowering.

Like we have to tell you that!

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.

WORST MONSTERS!!!

What happens when four Comic Con hardened sci-fi/horror fans sit around some microphones, slam down cocktails, and argue about all things monstrous? It's the new podcast...MONSTER PARTY!

In this episode, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, take an uncompromising look at the WORST MONSTERS in the history of horror and science fiction. The gang dish the dirt about killer sleeping bags, gas guzzling spiders, murderous tree stumps, and a creature that may have caused Godzilla to get a DNA test. Expect some surprises and a lot of use of the word "Lepus". And seriously...what's up with Japan and gorillas?!
