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 29 - Slaughter High

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.  Today from my new batch of used dvds, I've got Slaughter High.

IMDb: Slaughter High (14 November 1986)
Eight people are invited to their old high school for their ten-year reunion where a fellow former student, disfigured from a prank gone wrong, is out to seek revenge.

I'm starting into another collection today.  It's an eight movie pack and all of them are in 4:3 aspect ratio which is fitting for these type of movies.  I don't need to see Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go To College in wide screen to get the artist's intent.  I am going to watch the shit out of it though.  This is how you would experience the movie on vhs which was the driving force behind most of the '80s to '90s output.  On to Slaughter High.  This is the uncut version.  I didn't need the packaging to tell me that directly.  I could have figured it out based on how long we see Marty's dick.  This is one of the most prank centered slasher I've seen with three right at the beginning.  It's all little too much in fact.  The shower prank seems like it would be more traumatic, but Marty seems to bounce back from it pretty goddamned quick.  Shit like this would land these kids in jail today, but it barely registers here.  I think it would seem rougher to the audience if he had a smaller dick.  I don't know how you cast for that.  I guess you put an ad out, but who would respond to that?  "Actor needed.  Nudity required.  Must have embarrassingly small penis."  The second prank is an "exploding" joint which amounts to nothing, and the third and final prank leads to a real explosion combined with a Harvey Two-Face situation that was just a matter of time.  Store you acid on a low, sturdy shelf, people.  From there, it's revenge at the ten year reunion.  There's a lot of sloppy film making and things that don't really make sense to follow.  That's to be expected with the genre.  The movie succeeds on being fun though.

I'm continuing tomorrow with the only other film that I haven't seen from this collection.  Check back in.  In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown's episode on Terror Train, another slasher spawned from a prank.
