Needless Things Podcast 55 – The Casket Creatures

Derek and Ryan from The Casket Creatures visit the Phantom Zone to record a double dose of podcasts! 

Over the past few years Phantom Troublemaker has gotten to be pals with the Atlanta horror rockers after meeting them at the illustrious Clermont Lounge where they shared a bill with the legendary Tone Deaf Pig-Dogs. Since then Phantom has emceed shows for the guys and enjoyed general drunken revelry at various cons.

Today the guys talk about horror movies, music, and the history of The Casket Creatures, as well as their inimitable brand of live performance.

Be sure you also check out Phantom's appearance on CreatureCast, which was recorded immediately after the Creatures experienced THINGS for the first time!

The Casket Creatures on:


  1. Loved the podcast with the Casket Creatures. Like one of the band members, I love the Universal monsters. Not a fan of gore as I prefer the macabre. The Hammer films are also classics.

    On the topic of Elysium, please don't see it as it's terrible. It's such a left-wing screed, it's insane. Normally, I don't worry if the creator of a movie is left or right wing as long as they tell a good story, but such is not the case here. The director let his politics interfere with every step of the movie-making process, and there are plot holes big enough to fly a helicarrier through. I would recommend instead In Time (with Justin Timberlake) that tackles similar issues. Another good sci-fi flick that has class perceptions in it is Attack the Block.

    1. I ended up watching Elysium after we recorded this and it was just as haughty and dull as I suspected. Beautiful, but not interesting.
      I loved Attack the Block and have heard nothing but good things about In Time.
      Glad you're enjoying the show! Thanks for listening and giving feedback. Be sure to check out the Needless Things Podcast group on Facebook.
