Listening Guide

This section will feature the cream-of-the-crop, the best of the best when it comes to unitedcypher productions.  New to the site?  This is the perfect way to get an introduction to what we do!

"unitedcypher presents" is our show of other shows like Anime Alphabet and Fallout Forecast as well as older improv radio where nearly anything can happen, though it's mostly a compilation of our collective life experiences mixed with a bucket of lies and half-cocked accents.   

Anime Alphabet Series Wrap-up

The end of this series a good place to start.  Join Evan and DeHart as they reflect back on the completion of this 6 month project with special guest Cheats.  They relive some of the ups and downs of titles covered during the run of the show and serves as a good preview before going back and starting from the beginning.


The Mysteries of the Universe are unveiled!  Join ex-scientist and Poleitsher Prize winning war correspondant Paul Miller as he interviews a war veteran who was allegedly abducted and brain-raped by aliens, the publisher and co-author of a book on the aforementioned brain-rape, and a skeptic who thinks that both of them are denying the truth.... About Spacesquatch! 


"Motion Picture Meltdown" is a movie review podcast without the sponsors or the prestigious hollywood trappings.  It is produced by Stephen and hosted by Stephen, Philip, Cheats, and DeHart along with the occasional guests.  It's a fast paced show that's hilarious from start to finish.

Ep 139 - The Safe Word Is Banana Pudding!

Welcome back to Not-So Superhero September for Motion Picture Meltdown! We continue our theme with a couple of crappy super-hero movies from the 90's. Phil, DeHart, and Stephen get together with Joel Mengel from The Pod People Podcast once again to roast through Sam Raimi's Darkman as well as Blankman.

Ep 206 - I Murdered Your Father, Wearing Your Father.

This week we kick off the new year by roasting through a couple of John Woo action "classics" from the 1990's. We go over the 1993 hit starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Hard Target as well as John Woo's follow up from 1995, Face/Off.

Halloween Disc-A-Day 2017: Day 28 - Wicked Little Things

Continuing from last year, this project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch.  Up next from my new batch of used dvds, I've got Wicked Little Things.

IMDb: Wicked Little Things (17 November 2006)
Karen, Sarah, and Emma Tunney are all moving to a small town in Pennsylvania where, unknown to them, in 1913, a horrid mine accident trapped dozens of children alive, underground. But there's a problem. They're still alive.

This is the last movie I'll be talking about from the After Dark Horrorfest collection that I've been watching.  The fourth film is Unrest which I've already seen, so it doesn't count.  Anyway, it's time to get down to business.  This movie takes multiple stereotypical pieces of horror movie, plays them out exactly the way you think they would, but still manages to make that fairly interesting.  The initial setup is a single mom and her daughters moving into a family-owned property in the mountains left by her recently deceased husband.  Some child miners (aka minor miners) where buried alive when management blew them up.  It feels like they began with the intention the children would be ghosts.  The younger daughter befriends one, gets a blackened doll, the whole nine yards.  Then we start to see the childrens' nightly activities where they are just straight up zombies.  They did have a kind of unique spin on them by adopting the "black-eyed children" look.  Google that phrase if you aren't familiar with it.  Also, these are kind of revenge zombies after the descendant of the man that caused their deaths.  That guy was easily the worst actor in the movie.  All the other main characters have been in bigger movies.  All I want out of the shit-heel villain is a little scenery chewing, but this guy is barely trying in what should be his big moments.  In spite of that, I think this comes together well enough. 

I'm cracking into a bundle tomorrow.  Check back in.  In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown's episode on Lawnmower Man.  The unbelievable Irish dude from that movie also had a small part in this one as the plumber.  It's barely a connection, but it's all I've got here.
