Along time ago, in a condo's dining area off the kitchen, in a galaxy, actually, quite near... MONSTER PARTY!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, had a ridiculous amount of fun when they welcomed hilarious comedian/podcaster, MIKE SCHMIDT, to send up the best and worst of HORROR TAGLINES!!! The episode was so popular, the guys had to get this guy back for another round!
Yes, the great, MIKE SCHMIDT (THE 40 YEAR OLD BOY PODCAST) returns to take a crack at... SCI-FI TAGLINES!!!
Just like with our HORROR TAGLINES episode, the rules are simple: Each person takes a turn reading out a SCI-FI TAGLINE, and the rest have to guess what the film is. It's a game you can play along with at home, in the safety of your own drinking nook!
Remember, MONSTER PARTY is the warmest place to hide. Next to a JOHN CARPENTER'S THE THING fleece blanket, of course. Thank you Etsy!

NEWSFLASH: MONSTER PARTY just figured out what "REDRUM" means!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, venerate a modern master of horror literature in special HALLOWEEN episode! Let us give you a tantalizingly and terrifying tour through... THE WORLD OF STEPHEN KING!!!
Helping us sort through the voluminous volumes that make up the work of Stephen King, is documentary filmmaker and King expert... CONSTANTINE NASR!
Constantine has produced and directed many of the featurettes on the DVDs of your favorite films and TV shows, including THE GREEN MILE, THE WALKING DEAD, THE MIST, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, HOUSE OF WAX, THE VAL LEWTON HORROR COLLECTION, and many, many more!
The gang immediately bonded with Constantine, especially after he presented us with an actual piece of THE GREEN MILE, taken directly from the set. Of course, the squabbling over who would actually get this rare collectible eventually turned violent.
If you listen to one episode of MONSTER PARTY, this is "IT!" Ha! See what we did? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sigh.

MONSTER PARTY is thrilled to horrify you!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, tackle the age old question that has defied people who care about this sort of thing for ages... is it THRILLER OR HORROR?!!!
What makes a film horror or thriller? Is it the story, the atmosphere, the music, gore, or whether the film has an A-list cast? Can a film be both? Or neither? Wait...what?
Helping us negotiate our way through these perplexing celluloid dilemmas is comedian/writer/actor/hooligan... KEVIN KATAOKA! (TOTALLY BIASED WITH W. KAMAU BELL, NEWSREADERS, MADTV, DR. KATZ)
With this episode, MONSTER PARTY is definitely not horrified to thrill you!

This time, MONSTER PARTY does it by the book!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, have created a game more challenging than the one where they see who can be the first to get so drunk, they can't say the word, "shapeshifter." It's... THE MAD MOVIE SMACKDOWN!!!
The rules are simple: We pick a genre movie guidebook like, The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, or John Stanley's Creature Feature Movie Guide; close our eyes, flip through the pages, and randomly jab our fingers at a film entry. Whatever come up...we have to discuss! No matter how obscure, or awful it is. Sounds fun, right? RIGHT?!!!
Joining us for this terrifying game of nerd Russian Roulette, is returning friend of the show, actor/writer/dungeon master... KEN DALY! (THE KARATE KID, MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID, DUCK DODGERS, NERD POKER, STAN AGAINST EVIL)

If you're excited about this episode of MONSTER PARTY, give us a CHEKOV SCREAM!!!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, welcome a true science fiction legend... WALTER KOENIG!!!
