QUOTE MONSTER PARTY... EVERMORE!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, unleash their brand new game on an unsuspecting public! Your horror movie knowledge will be put to the test, when we play a game modestly titled... HORROR MOVIE QUOTES!!!
If you played along with any of our TAGLINES episodes, the gameplay is pretty much identical. Each of us offers up a anonymous quote (or several) from a horror film, and the rest of us try to guess which film it is from. Simple, yes? Were we good at it? Ummm...
To do this topic justice, we wanted a guest who knows horror films as well as we do, not to mention someone we really liked! And we got just that! Joining us for this game of Terror-ivial Pursuit, is a celebrated actor, writer, producer, artist, and horror whisperer, with a literal lifetime resume of excellent work. Please welcome back a longtime friend of MONSTER PARTY... KEN DALY! (THE KARATE KID, QUINCY M.E., THE USUAL SUSPECTS, SUPER ADVENTURE TEAM, MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID, DUCK DODGERS, BE COOL SCOOBY DOO, STAN AGAINST EVIL, NERD POKER... AND HE'S THE GUY WHO INTRODUCED US TO THE "SHAMROCK SHAKE"!)
WARNING: AFTER THE END MUSIC, THERE IS YET ANOTHER ROUND OF BICKERING OVER THE FILM, "GODZILLA VS. KONG." MAYBE KONG CAN LET THINGS GO, BUT APPARENTLY WE CAN'T.

MONSTER PARTY SAYS, "HEY! YOU'VE GOT YOUR WESTERN IN MY SCI-FI!"
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, discuss what happens when a science fiction film or TV show is cross-pollenated with a non-genre concept. It all goes down in an episode with a slightly long-winded title called... SCI-FI MASHUPS: THE MANDALORIAN AND BEYOND!!!
Some of the most popular sci-fi franchises borrow heavily from other genres, especially westerns and samurai films. The STAR WARS franchise is probably the most high profile example, with THE MANDALORIAN being the current standard bearer. Of course, there are a slew of other shows and films, that not only follow this same approach, but attempt to blend even more diverse non-science fiction genres. And we're gonna hit them all! Well, most of them. Okay, some of them. Look, the shows can't all be over three hours!
In the tradition of our topic, we decided to mash this episode up with an excellent guest! He's a brilliant writer, blogger, attorney, long-time champion of MONSTER PARTY, and host of his own ridiculously popular podcast: THE LEGAL GEEKS. Let's give a Grogu greeting to... JOSH GILLILAND! (BOW TIE LAW, UNLOCKED STORIES: TEN STORIES, ONE PHONE, SAN DIEGO COMIC CON, WONDERCON, SAN DIEGO COMIC FEST, SAN FRANCISCO COMIC CON, GEEKIE AWARDS NOMINATION 2015: BEST PODCAST)
WARNING: AFTER THE END MUSIC, THERE IS EVEN MORE BICKERING OVER GODZILLA VS. KONG. IT'S A MASHUP OF FILM CRITICISM AND PERSONAL ATTACKS!
