Episode 23: Screaming Keeps the Face Supple

, with special guest:

Meghan Murphy is twisted and cute, just like her art. We like her.

This week, we talk to Meghan Murphy of Kawaii Not and Murphypop fame! She’s a big horror movie fan, so the three of us finally get down to professing our love of monsters, terror, and gore.

We unfortunately had some technical difficulties in recording this episode (translation: in a moment of desperation, we recorded it with a Rock Band microphone). We managed to clean up the audio pretty well, but you’ll hear some artifacts here and there. Sorry about that! We hope it’s not too bothersome.

Our unusual circumstances also meant that we did not have a formal booze pairing for this week. We did record during a party at a friend’s house, though, so please grab a random beer or cider — like we did — and enjoy!

  1. I think one of the reasons why Hellraiser is such a favorite of mine is how effectively it combines both squishy and psychological horror. Squishy in the beautifully extreme element of Pinhead and the Cenobites, who mask the underlying psychological angle of the sadistic uncle gradually taking over and corrupting his brother’s home and family. The sequels, I love many of ’em, but not so much.
