Tracey and Scott made another trip outside of Disney, Indiana and ended up on Monster Kid Radio once again. We sat down with show host Derek Koch to talk about our trip to the Artcraft Theater’s Monster Mania event in Franklin, Indiana in October. This two day event featured 35mm print screenings of six classic Universal monster films, most of which we had never seen before.
The host of the Disney, Indiana podcast once again venture outside the house of mouse to appear on the Monster Kid Radio podcast. They attended HorrorHound Weekend Con the weekend of September 7-8, 2013. While at this con, they took in the Ray Harryhausen Super-8 Tribute Show (along with a bonus Super-8 show) hosted by We are Movie Geek’s Tom Stockman.
Although the 8MM film format was originally intended for home movie use, major film studios released condensed versions of their films in this format all up until the mid 1980s. Most titles were shorten to either 8 or 17 minutes, depending on the film length used. Collector Tom Stockman showcased the work of legendary animator Ray Harryhausen in this format and Tracey and Scott were fortunate enough to attend.
What did they think of this show – and the bonus show the following night that covered such diverse films at It Conquered the World (1956), Jaws (1975), Reptilicus (1961) and many others. Check out Monster Kid Radio episode 33 to find out.
Disney, Indiana co-host Tracey ventures outside Disney for an episode of the Monster Kid Radio podcast. She and MKR host Derek talk about 1969′s The Valley of Gwangi, directed by Jim O’Connolly and featuring the work of Ray Harryhausen.
The film doesn’t have ties to Disney, but Tracey does share a story of how Disney did have an impact on Ray Harryhausen after Ray saw Fantasia.

Tracey continues her visit to the Monster Kid Radio Station with more talk about the movie The Valley of Gwangi (dir. Jim O’Connolly) in Monster Kid Radio – Episode 30: Part 2.
