MONSTER PARTY WANTS YOU TO HAVE BITCHIN' AND BEWITCHIN' SUMMER!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, usher in the summer with an audio vacation package, guaranteed to make you soil your speedo. Can your Pina Colada soaked nerves handle the sun-drenched dread that is... MONSTER PARTY'S SUMMER SLAY-CATION!!!
As much as the MONSTER PARTY gang loves a cold and clammy tomb, or a fog-laden castle, we realize that horror can often turn up in most pleasant locations. The movies have shown us that just because you happen to be relaxing in a cabin in the woods, or lying on the beach in an island paradise, doesn't mean something hideous isn't about to happen.
Laying his BLOOD BEACH towel next to ours, is a long-time friend of the show, and one of our most ardent supporters. He's an absurdly talented writer, columnist, improvisor, cartoonist, and podcaster, who is always welcome at our timeshare of terror. MONSTER PARTY is eerily ecstastic to welcome back... MARC HERSHON! (SUCCOTASH: THE COMEDY SOUNDCAST SOUNDCAST, THE HUFFINGTON POST, THE FUNSTER, I HATE PEOPLE, MONSTER MAKERS, SANTA JR.)
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO LISTEN TO A PODCAST FEATURING FOUR DUDES WHO OWN A LOT OF ACTIONS FIGURES...

MONSTER PARTY GOES OFF THE RAILSBACK!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, are maniacally proud to present an incredible topic, that is also our guest! Prepare yourselves for an intimate audience with one of the most talented and unconventional actors of our time... STEVE RAILSBACK!!!
Having STEVE RAILSBACK on MONSTER PARTY, borders on the surreal. His career spans decades, and he's tackled some of the most challenging and controversial roles an actor could hope for. He made his film debut starring in the Vietnam related drama, THE VISITORS, directed by legendary director Elia Kazan, and gained nationwide attention for his chilling portrayal of Charles Manson in the 1976 television film, HELTER SKELTER.
Steve went on to act with Peter O'Toole and Barbara Hershey in the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated, THE STUNTMAN, and made everyone on this podcast jealous by starring opposite Mathilda May in Tobe Hooper's sci-fi classic, LIFEFORCE. Man, acting sure is a great job!
And for MONSTER PARTY fans, Mr. Railsback has appeared in a slew of other memorable genre films and TV shows that include TURKEY SHOOT, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, BLUE MONKEY, SCISSORS, ALLIGATOR II: THE MUTATION, THE X-FILES (GO DUANE BARRY!), BARB WIRE, ED GEIN, PLAGUERS, and many more!
Although still recovering from an on-the-set injury, Steve was gracious enough to make to time to talk to us about his career, his insights on the craft of acting, and his incredible personal relationships with such greats as Lee Strasberg, Elia Kazan, Peter O' Toole, and Patrick Stewart. Now this is a guy who keeps great company!
THANKS AGAIN STEVE RAILSBACK! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THIS MEANT TO US!
