Hank Hymen: Virgin Slayer

Posted in News with tags , , , on October 29, 2016 by bluefall8

Hank Hymen: Virgin Slayer is a horror-comedy short released Halloween 2012 as part of an anthology special called Our Muddy Nightmare. The sketch, presented as a movie trailer, details the absurd case of a serial lothario Hank Hymen, who surfaces each October to seduce virgins — 31 of them to be exact. Hank is pursued by Detectives Rockford and Grant, a crime-fighting duo willing to color outside the lines of the law to settle a personal grudge.

Our Muddier Nightmare at the Summit of Horror Month

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2013 by bluefall8

The month of October has once again been a mile-a-minute thrill ride filled with too many sleepless nights. We hit the haunts hard (and we’re not done yet) but its also been a huge month for the Mud Puppets. Ryan and I embarked on a bold concept entitled Horror Month — wherein everything we produced throughout October was both humorous and horrifying.

This all came about due to the resounding success of Our Muddy Nightmare, our 2012 Halloween Special. This year we followed that up with a sequel, Our Muddier Nightmare. I’m very proud of everything we produced during Horror Month and I hope all you continue to follow the Mud Puppets long after the candle inside the last jack-o’-lantern has been snuffed out.

I’ll invite you once more to check out the Mud Puppets on YouTube and subscribe; the Halloween Specials are particularly close to my heart and I encourage all to share it with your friends, family, and fellow bloggers.

Our Muddy Nightmare was done in the spirit of a horror anthology with individual sketches tied into the overarching story.

The Mud Puppets Present Horror Month

The wait is over, Horror Month is here! A couple of weeks ago my cousin Ryan and I announced via our YouTube Channel that all of the videos we released this month would be horror or Halloween related. We began shooting our Halloween Special in mid-September and as of now it is slated to be released in just two weeks. However, today fans can enjoy our first entry in Horror Month, Demon Seed!

We’re also heading into the cable access studio today to shoot a Halloween themed episode; Ryan and I will discuss horror movies, haunted houses, and share memories of Halloween past. The episode will also feature a murder mystery, creepy decor, and at least one off color remark about Elvira’s boobs! Our guests will include representatives from the Wyandotte Jaycees, the group responsible for Wyandotte’s 2013 haunted attraction Bloodbath on Biddle. There will even be video of Ryan and I during a recent trip to the haunted house when things went…well, not according to plan.

We’ll also welcome Reverend Thaddeus Doogoody formerly of St. Pascal’s School for Wayward Rascals. Reverend Doogoody appeared in Our Muddy Nightmare, the 2012 Halloween Special by us Mud Puppets. Reverend Doogoody will discuss Halloween traditions, his plans to picket Michigan haunted attractions, and likely damn us to hell!

It’s all a part of Horror Month and we’d be honored if you joined in the fun. It would be a great deal to me if the readers of Horrorlust became fans of the Mud Puppets as well; so let any horror and haunt fiends that you happen to know that Horror Month is here and we’re hungry for eyeballs!

This horrifying clown is down with Horror Month. Are you?

Reviews to Commence Soon, Mud Puppets

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2013 by bluefall8

John and I successfully toured both Jackson’s Underworld and Darksyde Acres on Friday the 13th — just another notch in our belt; it’s the earliest we’ve ever visited a haunted attraction. I’ll have full reviews posted for both by the end of the week but generally speaking, we enjoyed both locations. Jackson’s Underworld has grown a lot since opening its doors in 2009 but still has a long way to go if it wants to become one of Michigan’s premiere haunted destinations. Darkysde Acres served up its usual cast of unusual characters, some of which provide the best interaction we’ve witnessed anywhere. We also had an opportunity to meet the owner of this madhouse and he was a cool guy indeed and as it turns out, a big fan of the Mud Puppets too!

The Mud Puppets, if I may indulge in a gratuitous plug for a moment, is a sketch comedy troupe that I formed with my cousin Ryan a little more than a year ago. We have a YouTube channel where we release new content each Saturday. Last year we produced a Halloween special entitled Our Muddy Nightmare and we’re currently working on this years entry, Our Muddier Nightmare. We also began a cable access show at our local station earlier this year and are in the midst of writing a Halloween themed presentation for that as well. We welcome anybody with a taste for horror and Halloween to check us out and subscribe. We’re also on Facebook, Twitter, and right here on WordPress. You can follow Ryan @MudPuppetRyan or myself @MudPuppetJoel.
