Phantom Troublemaker talks to Son of Celluloid, Nathan Hamilton, about modern horror and his plans for the Blue Track at Days of the Dead Atlanta!

Over the last several years Days of the Dead has become a staple of Atlanta's convention scene and has spread its influence as a traveling convention. In 2017, for the first time, Days of the Dead Atlanta will be spotlighting the local horror scene thanks to the efforts of Nathan Hamilton, best known as a guru of Atlanta horror and haunt attractions.

Nathan has been covering horror – both independent and mainstream – as Son of Celluloid for years and is an omnipresent force in the local scene. Whether it's metal shows, Halloween haunts, or monster wrestling, the Son of Celluloid makes it his business to be there and stay at the forefront of what's current in shock and gore.

Listen in as Nathan details his plans for the Blue Track – the locally-focused portion of Days of the Dead – and talks guests, panels, and more!

Needless Things Podcast 143 – The Ice Pirates Needless Commentary

January 19th, 2017

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

In the mysterious depths of Phantom Troublemaker’s psyche there exists a very special list of films from the 80s. These are categorized as “The HBO Movies”. Thirty years ago premium cable television wasn’t what it is today and the same rotations of a dozen or so movies would play regularly for months. Many of the films that shaped Phantom were part of that ages-old pattern and were seen many times over the course of that magical decade.

The Ice Pirates is one of those cherished movies. Starring Robert Urich and featuring cameos from the likes of Anjelica Huston, John Carradine, Bruce Vilanch(!) and even a babyfaced Ron Perlman, The Ice Pirates is an often overlooked piece of genre entertainment that blends science fiction, comedy, and swashbuckling action into an unforgettable outer space adventure!

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Rad Ranger, Arian Gulick, Ryan Cadaver, and special guest R.T. Ewell gather in the Phantom Zone to offer up their thoughts on this 1984 cult classic!

The Needless Things Irregulars look at the jam-packed list of upcoming 2017 movies that didn’t get mentioned by the listeners for last week’s episode!


After basing episode 141 of the podcast on listener comments about what they were excited for in 2017, Phantom realized that a ton of great movies had been left out of the conversation. This week, the Irregulars seek to rectify that oversight by discussing some of the movies coming out during the first few months of the year - Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, John Wick: Chapter Two, Ghost in the Shell, and plenty more!

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Beth V, Mike Gordon, and the Rad Ranger return to talk about all of the stuff that isn’t Marvel, Star Wars, or DC!
