Twilight Zone: The Movie

Matt's getting a new Twilight Zone podcast rolling in December, so it seemed like a good time for the Sanctuary to enter the Twilight Zone.

Spider-Man: The Dragon's Challenge

We delve into the only real Spider-Man - 70's TV star Nicholas Hammond. Unless Japanese Spider-Man wants to contest that title in a duel.

La Jetee (from Matt's Aural Hygiene podcast)

Matt and frequent Sci-Fi Sanctuary guest Andrew Shearer get into this art film precursor to "12 Monkeys," which we covered last month in our regular feed.

What Dreams May Come (w/ Von Galt)

And we're back to the depressing Robin Williams films. But guest Von Galt is back to shine some light on that from the Buddhist perspective.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (w/ Richie Morgan)

Luke said we had to do this movie while Matt was 42 years old. Guest Richie Morgan showed up to make the podcast more interesting than just that.

Dune (2021)

We double down on Dune this year and take a trip to the theatre to see how its sandworm measures up.

The Evil Dead (w/ Stuart Gipp)

To cap off our Halloweenis, we chat up a whole lot about weenises (as well as a little about the Evil Dead) with guest Stuart Gipp.

Dawn of the Dead (w/ Andrew Shearer)

Andrew's dad insists you crack open a PBR and watch the best zombie movie ever.

No Time to Die

Matt and Luke finally give the Bond franchise some attention with Daniel Craig's last go-around as the super spy.

12 Monkeys (w/ Dr. Annie Kelley)

We get into this mid-90's flavor of a plague-ridden Doomsday with Annie Kelley, who knows more than a few things about viruses.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (w/ Henrique Couto)

Director Henrique Couto returns to lay down some straight-up Wes Craven knowledge on this 80's horror classic for our spooky October.

The Final Cut (w/ Ken Ammi)

A non-manic Robin Williams traverses a sci-fi world where some people are born with invasive devices that record their entire lives.

Soylent Green

Your intrepid duo sets out to discover what the ingredients of Soylent Green really are.


Which of the four kaiju here came out on top: the giant gorilla, alligator, wolf, or the Rock?

Star Trek: Nemesis (w/ Dayton Ward)

A notorious belly-flop upon its released, how has the last of the old-school Trek films aged? We bring in prolific Trek novelist Dayton Ward to work it all out.

Monster Mash: Monster Hunter Legends of the Guild

An episode of sister podcast Monster Mash about the Netflix movie Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild


Matt and Luke try to use, like, 100% of their brains, man. Even though that's not really a thing.

Godzilla vs. Kong

After endless delays (especially in Japan), we finally take a look at this current iteration of the epic tussle.

King Kong vs. Godzilla (w/ Sass Parilla the Singing Gorilla)

The year is 1962, and these two titans have their first meeting on the isle of Honshu. We're gonna need a singing gorilla for this one.

Fermat's Room (w/ Jason Parsley and Sarah Mason)

Matt and Luke, a couple of solid "C" math students, get schooled by proper mathematicians. Turns out none of us were actually familiar with this Spanish, math-based thriller beforehand, but it's a good 'un.

War of the Worlds (1953)

It's episode 100! TIme for Luke to bask in the glow of his childhood home and obsessions. Matt responds with one of the worst stories that came out of World War II.

Prometheus (SWAPCAST with Gordon White from 'Rune Soup')

Gordon White is back along with almost 40 of his premium 'Rune Soup' members who were texting us webinar-style while recording. We delve into this monster of a space opera and then let 'er rip into ancient aliens, faeries, and !BIZARRO! Sealab 2021.

Muppets From Space (w/ Andrew Shearer)

Join us in our search for Gonzo's search to find out what kind of Muppet he is. Not in the British sense of the word.

Quatermass and the Pit (w/ Ken Ammi)

This week we stare into the insectoid eyes of a sci-fi Hammer flick that doesn't shy on the occult. Electrical Satan in the sky.

Men In Black

Nothing is more 1997 cool than Will and Tommy bopping around with weird aliens. Is it still cool now? Of course.

Europa Report

Some hard sci-fi that has been woefully neglected. If you don't already know this one, now you have no excuse but to groove into it.

Cloud Atlas (w/ Gordon White)

If you're not sure what genre of film you want to watch, there's always "Cloud Atlas." Gordon White joins us from the Rune Soup podcast to peer into the magical depths of this flick.

Star Trek: Insurrection (w/ Eric Stillwell)

This week we get into a very underrated Trek with returning guest Eric Stillwell, who was producer Michael Piller's right-hand man through the filmmaking process on this one.

Into the Spider-Verse (w/ Sean Bell)

The best superhero films really are the ones that throw the book out of the window and get away with it. We've brought along animation aficionado and gaming guru, Sean Bell, to work it on out with us.

Dune (w/ Craig Campobasso)

We dive into the old school Dune with Craig Campobasso, who spent four years assisting David Lynch with this epic vision of an epic novel.
