Death Curse Society began as an off-handed comment among a group of new friends who had met playing Friday the 13th: The Game on PS4. When the gang all got together to play on a nightly basis, the topic of horror would always come up and the discussions would be riveting. Someone mentioned that “this would make a great podcast” but no one took the comment seriously. Or did they?

A week later, Redcranke privately contacted The Colonel and Zig Zag, since they had the most to say about horror during their game sessions, and pitched an idea. That idea eventually became Death Curse Society and the legend continues to grow.

Redcranke: Redcranke first became infatuated with horror at 7-years-old when he witnessed the glory of a drive-in double-feature – Friday the 13th Parts 1 and 2. Redcranke has had a number of occupations over the years, starting in journalism and was the owner/publisher of a local entertainment magazine for 15 years. He even dabbled in screenwriting in the 1990s, having many scripts optioned or purchased, but never secured any official screenwriting credits. Redcranke currently lives in Oklahoma and runs a successful mobile karaoke business.

The Colonel: Wouldn’t you like to fuckin’ know. Just kidding… Bio coming soon.

Zig Zag: Scooby-Doo & Casper led the way down Zig Zag’s path of Horror! His dad would show him and his siblings condensed super-8 film versions of the Universal classics, and introduced them to the Saturday afternoon Creature Features on the UHF channels. Zig Zag would tag along with his older brother to see what are now called ‘the classics’ on the big screen. Halloween, Friday the 13th and even the occasional unrated film like Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Only 99 cents would get us 2 feature films. This is where he also discovered Fulci, first with Zombie, but a few years later City of the Living Dead, AKA The Gates of Hell. The Late Friday & Saturday Night Horror movie shows were added to the rotation and his passion would bleed onto his friends, as they saw every horror film released. When the VHS arrived, they relived them all again, while finding even more titles they had never heard of. Now in the age of streaming, once again, a new door has opened to an seemingly unlimited list of new horror titles. Horror is alive and well, and Death Curse Society is here to tell you about it! Zig Zag is a graduate of the Specs Howard School of Media Arts in Southfield, MI with a degree in Production & Announcing and worked in radio in Lansing, Kalamazoo, & Detroit. Now, he is using all his powers to help bring the most vivid & visceral horror show to Facebook & You Tube!
