MONSTER PARTY TRIES TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, embark on a trip into another dimension where popular non-genre films are now horror movies. Listen in as the gang go around their fancy new podcast table, and take turns pitching ideas for taking a beloved mainstream movie and turning it into something HORRIFYING! It's an episode we arrogantly call... SHOULD'VE BEEN A HORROR FILM!!!
No surprise, we managed to book the perfect guest to tackle this mind-blowing concept. It's actor, comedian, podcaster, and improviser supreme... REGAN BURNS! (DOG WITH A BLOG, HALFWAY HOME, SUPERNATURAL, OBLIVIOUS, CRITICALLY YOURS, and EVERY COMMERCIAL ON TELEVISION!)
This is a game you can play at home! Come up with your own pitches and share them with us! You know you want to!

MONSTER PARTY knows, the suit makes THE MONSTER!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, due their best to hide their zippers, and tackle the kaiju sized topic of... MONSTER SUITS!!!
Any listener knows how much we all love a great (or sometimes even bad) monster suit! From creations like THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and GODZILLA, to H.R. GIGER's "ALIEN" and CHEWBACCA, monster suits continue to thrill and fascinate us. And speaking of thrilling and fascinating, MONSTER PARTY once again manages to score the perfect guest for this topic. It's monstrously talented monster suit creator...TED HAINES! (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, BLADE II, WISHMASTER, CARNOSAUR, DOLLMAN VS. DEMONIC TOYS, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, THE MUPPETS, and MUCH MORE!)
WARNING: If you plan on making a HUMAN CENTIPEDE suit, don't forget lots of air holes!

THE GANG ARE BACK TOGETHER...SORT OF!
So here's the story: While JAMES GONIS, MATT WEINHOLD, and Matt's wife, CARRIE, attended SAN DIEGO INTERNATIONAL COMIC CON 2018, LARRY STROTHE was called away on important business and was unable to attend. SHAWN SHERIDAN, just released from the hospital (and towing around an intravenous antibiotic tube), was able to make it down to San Diego with his wife GINA, but was only able to enjoy the Con from his hotel room. Using his trusty Comic Con press pass, James managed to book as our guest, MEGO TOYS expert, and owner of DR. MEGO'S REPROS... DR. MEGO! Luckily, we were able to convince DR. MEGO (aka PAUL CLARKE) to make his way up to Shawn's recuperation room for a fun and informative discussion about... THE WORLD OF MEGO!!!
Now, when we talk MEGO, we're talkin' about the groundbreaking toy company that brought us some of the most coveted action figures since the 1970's. MEGO gave us drooling nerds, high quality fabric clothed figures from such franchises as STAR TREK, PLANET OF THE APES, MARVEL & DC SUPERHEROES, THE WIZARD OF OZ, and many, many more! Oh, and they also brought us a little thing called, THE MICRONAUTS! And that's only scratching the surface.
And, if that were not enough, we've also recorded an extra wrap-around segment that includes some of Larry Strothe's fondest MEGO memories! Isn't it nice when Larry's memories are fond?
Whew! So there you have it! We've re-united the band, and as long as we can rely on modern medicine, it'll stay that way!
