We will probably start a new series of horror films with commentary, along the lines of our current Saturday Fright Special series from Keene. There are two separate series available to us, and together they have enough episodes to sustain a weekly series. We’re going to show these on FRIDAY NIGHT at 11 PM (replacing Scorch’s PFG-TV, which has run out of new episodes for us to show). The current plan would be to show them on Friday night (Saturday morning) at midnight (replacing a replay of LINK TV Presents). If we get permission, we’ll start them December 5th. Here are the descriptions of the two series:
Penny Dreadful’s Shilling Shockers
Shilling Shockers is a weekly horror movie program hosted by the witch Penny Dreadful, her werewolf husband Garou (a.k.a. her “Snarling Darling”), and the semi-retired monster hunter Dr. Manfred Von Bulow. Penny Dreadful won the 2007 Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award for “Favorite Horror Host”.
Penny and her cohorts introduce classic horror and sci-fi movies, and appear in humorous, narrative segments at breaks every 20-30 minutes of the film. The show often features musical numbers, special guest stars and interviews, and visits to spooky historical locations. The segments are directed by Rebecca Paiva, who also appears onscreen in a variety of cameo roles.
MIDNITE MAUSOLEUM is a show full comedy skits that hosts older public domain sci fi and horror movies.
It’s hosted by Marlena Midnite and her friends Wolfred (A werewolf/vampire) Franklin (A lab created monster gone wrong) Robyn Graves (Marlenas best friend and the “Midnite Mailgirl”) Grimms (The local reaper) and Dr. Thadious Bones (Orthopedic surgeon and aspiring comedian). The shows consist of segments that take place in Marlenas mausoleum, the boneyard and the autopsy room as well as other locales. Our show is a new twist on a genre pioneered by hosts like Vampira, Sammy Terry, Svengoolie, Dr. Creep, Zacherley, The Acri Creature Feature, Crematia Mortem and many others
Be sure to join in on the fun with Marlena and her friends, We do recurring “news” segments, Midnite Diner segments and a viewer mail segment on every episode. Our episodes do vary from 1hr 30min to 2hrs in length . We Looove late night time slots
Marlena and Robyn have both confirmed their participation in the “Horrorhosts Tribute to VAMPIRA” event at the Horrorhound Weekend / Dark Carnival Film Festival, March 27th , 28th 2010 in Indianapolis IN… Read all about it in HORRORHOUND magazine in December
