    171 The Black Flash

    23/01/2020 Duración: 34min

    Provincetown, or PTown, on Cape Cod is known as THE vacation destination of choice for the LGTBQ+ of the east coast. It's thriving arts scene and quaint charms make it feel like the last place you'd expect to see a monster, but in the late 1930's, locals started reporting seeing a dark shadowy giant that would leap out to give them a fright. This demon of the dunes came to be known as The Black Flash! Sharing a very similar M.O. to the previously-covered Spring-Heeled Jack of England, The black Flash was known for being more of a prankster than a truly sinister presence, but some locals swore that it was able to perform superhuman feats and disappear "as quick as a flash". So what is Th Black Flash? A Demon? A Cryptid? A Shadow Person? A hoax? Let's talk about it tonight on Spooky A S! Music by Occultic Overtones, Patti Page, and Bernard Herrmann

    18/11/2019 Duración: 42min

    Tonight Eric is going over the history of what just may be the most famous means of execution: The Guillotine! Despite its gruesome reputation, the guillotine was actually invented as a more humane form of capital punishment. In fact, the man who it's named after, Dr. Guillotine, was against the idea of capital punishment and was not very pleased that the devise became so closely linked to his name. The French first made use of the guillotine in the 1790's and used it right up until 1977! In all that time, one question remained: was the guillotine actually any more humane than other forms of execution? All this plus Eric discusses his Halloween season and describes the differences between Sleepy Hollow and Salem...again. All this and more on tonight's Spooky A S. Music by Occultic Overtones

  • 163 Teen Witch 1989

    163 Teen Witch 1989

    25/10/2019 Duración: 49min

    I'm going to be honest with you: this episode is ok, but it would have been better if I'd had a guest cohost. Lord knows I tried, but although many people told me how much they love 1989's Teen Witch, nobody was willing to come on and talk about it with me! Is it such a guilty pleasure??? With a special intro from the film's star, Robyn Lively, tonight I'm rewatching Teen Witch for the first time in at least a decade. Does it hold up as the cult classic it's said to be? Why don't more people go crazy over little brother Richie's performance (it's masterful)? Was I Like Boys legit supposed to be a cheer? Who will be the most popular girl? And of course, did they ever top that? All this and more on tonight's Spooky A S! Original Music by Occultic Overtones
