Gobble, gobble everyone. Yes, Jack and Hunter are truly at it again with their second annual Thanksgiving tasting feast from the far reaches of hell. Thank Cthulu they also had a bevy of delicious pumpkin ales to choose from to wash that cornucopia of nastiness down. Filmed in a secret location, far from the corona virus police, the Monster Men invite all to break bread with them and sample some fine beers. Give thanks that you can laugh at their misery.
Spring is here! The weather is warming up and the trees are blooming. What better time to unleash the Antarctic Ice Beasts upon the world? Antarctic Ice Beasts is the latest novel from Hunter Shea and it’s the main topic on this episode of Monster Men.
Here’s the synopsis:
The South Pole in winter is one of the deadliest places on Earth. The seven person crew of the US Freedom Base lives alone in months of utter darkness with no hope of help or rescue. A freak storm batters the walls and threatens to expose them to the deadly cold. All they can do is wait…and pray.
The ground quakes. An alien screech rips through the night. There’s something, or someone, lurking outside. Fists bang on the walls. Each tiny crack in the base spells death by hypothermia. Untold horrors have come to Freedom Base…and they want in!

Beers for Fears.
What beer pairs best with a horror movie? It’s the third annual Spooky Spirits episode of Monster Men, where we sample horror and Halloween themed beverages. (Beers, wines, whiskies, etc.)
This year we picked four very interesting assortment of pumpkin ales including Half Full Brewery Pumpkin Ale, Coney Island, Dogfish Head and Two Roads Brewery Roadsmary’s Baby. The good news is that all of these seasonal beers are delicious in their own way, but which one’s did we like best and why? You’ll find out.
It started with a simple premise: two buddies talking horror, as they would in a bar. Simple, spontaneous, sometimes spooky and often silly.
It’s the 100th episode of Monster Men! Help us celebrate five years of hanging out and talking horror. It’s been filled with great conversation and a ton of laughs, covering everything and anything including horror movies, ghost stories, toys, paranormal investigations, bobble-heads, author interviews, demons, UFOs, super heroes, book reviews, comic book recommendations, serial killers, conventions, Bigfoot, aliens, candy corn, Halloween celebrations, cryptids, urban legends, horrific wine and pumpkin ale.
It’s been a long strange trip and we are only getting started.
