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 30 - The Unholy

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 The Unholy.

IMDb: The Unholy (22 April 1988)
A priest battles a demon that kills sinners in the act of sinning.

Today's lesson is watch out for hot devils.  There really isn't that much more too this one.  It has the trope of the priest that doesn't believe in the devil that gained popularity after the satanic panic of the early '80s.  I've never been a fan of it.  That strains credibility after the first time they see something though.  A priest should be completely ready to drop that and dive into full mysticism at the first tangible evidence.  It goes with the territory.  The acting is good enough and has some familiar character actors like Hal Holbrook, Ned Beatty, and oddly enough Ben Cross who was in Wicked Little Things that I watched a few days ago.  There are a good amount of practical effects in the movie.  They vary widely in quality though.  The climax has a descent looking demon head puppet or animatronic, but the full suit version is rough.  Standing still it's fine, but the movement of it is poor.  All together the movie isn't bad.  I'm a fan of this package the movie came in.  In addition to the two movies that I wrote about here, it has Waxwork, 976-EVIL 2, Ghoulies III, C.H.U.D. II, Chopping Mall, and Class of 1999.  The only one of these I don't like is C.H.U.D. II.  It's a piece of shit, but the rest fully justify picking it up if you see a copy.

The month is almost over.  Come back one last time.  I've got big plans for the last of these.  In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown's episode on Creepshow for some more Hal Holbrook, the Superman episode for more Ned Beatty, or the one where we talk about End of Days to hear us discuss another showdown between the chosen one and the devil.
