Hey everyone! We’re baaaaaack! We’re sorry we missed Thanksgiving, as we had some personal life issues come up in the United Cypher family. However, we’re kicking off December with a few Holiday inspired episodes for you. Each week, we take one real-life villain and one fictional villain, talk about their histories, crimes, motives, any connections they may have, and whether they are redeemable with our trusty Bowler Hat Scale. We may have missed Thanksgiving, but we’re still in time for the leftovers, and this week Joel and I discuss Paul Merhige, aka The Thanksgiving Day Killer and 1980’s Disney Channel pilgrim turned ghost, Mr. Boogedy. Enjoy!Continue reading “The Curly Mustache Podcast: Ep. 33 – Paul Merhige & Mr. Boogedy”
Santa With Muscles | Krampus – Hello everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS!(in July). Phil has selected a couple of Christmas movies for us this week in celebration of the terrible made-up holiday in the retail world. But let’s be honest, we never get to do actual Christmas movies, because we do listener requests in December! This week, we somehow found another Hulk Hogan movie that we haven’t podcasted, so we roast through Santa With Muscles, as well as the Michael Dougherty’s follow up film to Trick R Treat, Krampus. In this episode, we all create our own Christmas themed horror icon, we talk about about how Hulk Hogan gets people addicted to his protein powder, and although we all liked Krampus, we think it lacked a little bite. Enjoy!
Silent Night, Deadly Night | Rare Exports – Hello everyone! We hope you had a great Christmas and we welcome you back to our third and final Holiday podcast as well as the last podcast of 2013! In the absence of Phil the Kill, Mark and myself decided to take on a couple of Christmas horror flicks and celebrate the lightly tapped evil Santa following out there. In this episode we roast through the 80’s slasher film, Silent Night, Deadly Night as well as a newer foreign take on holiday horror and the involvement of Krampus with Rare Exports. By listening to this episode, you’ll get to hear Mark and I rant about the differences in American and European horror films, the fact that carrying a bathtub around for drowning naughty children seems like a lot of work, and discuss why slasher villains always seem to excel in Archery. Enjoy!
