Posted in Dead Air Podcast, Updates with tags , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2016 by splatterpictures

We like to kick – streeeeeeetch – AND KICK we’re 50! We hit this milestone in style with the Clive Barker Adapted Candyman. A grad student Helen is writing her thesis on urban legends and comes across a story about a ghostly figure with a hook for a hand that is known only as “Candyman” A vengeful legend born of a terrible tragedy that can be summoned to kill if only you dare to say his name five times, but, these are only stories right? As Helen gets closer to the truth people start dying and she loses her grip on time and reality itself. Has she gone insane or is something far more sinister at work?

This film holds a special place in Wes’ heart and you’ll hear all about it during the episode. Also, we dive deep in to our hosts past which is apparently filled with unsolved mysteries, irrational fears and something Lydia calls the “Skat Shack.” It’s an epic double stuffed episode that is sure to leave you wanting more! Raise your glasses, kids and cheers to another 50!

You have the right to remain silent…forever. In episode 48 of The Dead Air Podcast Wes and Lydia wave that right and talk about what many consider to be the last of the great 80’s New York based slashers. On the mean streets of New York city life is cheap and a rash of murders is as common as seeing the Statue of Liberty itself. However, even in the city that never sleeps a killer over six feet tall dressed as a cop tends to grab attention. The citizens of New York are terrified of the wrong arm of the law and it’s up to Jack and Theresa to clear their names and stop this Maniac Cop before he kills again. It’s an all out war in the dirty rotten apple! Also, Lydia shares with us the horrors of working in the hotel industry.
