RIGGOR MORTISS
presents
ZONTAR: THE THING FROM VENUS (1966)

RIGGOR MORTISS PRESENTS with Riggor and Nyte Angel presents Larry Buchanan’s ZONTAR: THE THING FROM VENUS (1966). Larry is remembered as the “Ed Wood of Made-for-TV Movies” because of eight direct-to-television films he wrote, produced, and directed in the mid- and late-1960s for American International Pictures — all remakes of much better AIP films from a decade earlier. Buchanan’s instructions from AIP were: “We want cheap color pictures, we want half-assed names in them, we want them eighty minutes long, and we want them now.” Tonight’s movie is a remake of Roger Corman’s It Conquered the World (1956). It stars John (Mr. Shirley Temple) Agar, but Anthony Huston steals the movie with an hilarious over-the-top performance as Agar’s scientist friend who finds himself working in cahoots with our title monster.

Tuesday (11/29). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
SCREAM BLOODY MURDER (1973)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt and Marijohuana presents SCREAM BLOODY MURDER (1973). A young man kills his father with a farm tractor, mangles his hand, gets sent to a mental hospital, goes even more nutzoid when he finds out his mother has remarried, and kills her and his stepfather. And that’s only the first 20 minutes! Filmed in 1971, this was one of the earliest slasher films — preceding Halloween and Friday the 13th by almost a decade. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Devil to Drag, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, and more!

Wednesday (11/30). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
TOXIC TALES
presents
TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE (1959)

TOXIC TALES with Timber Wulff and co-hosts Mina Rowena the Vampire and Lucy Lovecraft the Ghoul presents TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE (1959). Overage teens brandishing Hubley’s Atomic Disintegrator cap guns (in some scenes the words “Hubley’s” can clearly be seen embossed on the side of the gun) plan to take over the earth. The teen aliens are aided in their nefarious scheme by a lobster-like creature called The Gargon. Unfortunately, the film’s producers couldn’t afford to construct a giant lobster, so only its shadow is seen. David Love stars as good teen alien Derek; Bryan Grant is bad teen alien Thor. Veteran character actor (and Ed Wood favorite) Harvey B. Dunn plays Gramps Morgan, while director Tom Graeff has a small role as reporter Joe Rogers. Meanwhile back at the Behead and Breakfast, Timber is under the weather. Could it have something to do with this stinker of a movie we’re watching tonight?

Thursday (12/01). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
DEMENTED FEATURES with Danvers
presents
HAXAN (1922) aka Witchcraft Through the Ages

DEMENTED FEATURES with Danvers presents a newly edited version of the silent classic HAXAN (1922) aka Witchcraft Through the Ages. This is a highly entertaining history lesson with dramatic re-creations of the witchcraft trials of the 15th and 16th centuries mixed in with fantasy scenes and some comedy. Director Benjamin Christiansen makes a cameo appearance as the Devil. Danvers has cut out the boring stuff at the beginning and eliminated some outdated material to make this venerable classic even more entertaining. Our movie will be preceded by the indie horror short Darkness Reveals (2008). Penny & Garou make a brief appearance at the beginning of the show, so don’t be late!

Friday (12/02). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE
presents
DETOUR (1945)

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-host Holly Schilthelm presents DETOUR (1945). This cult favorite directed by the legendary Edgar G. Ulmer stars Tom Neal as a down-and-out nightclub pianist who hitchhikes from New York to L.A. to hook up with his waitress girlfriend (Claudia Drake). The things that happen to him in just 69 short, fast-moving minutes are truly amazing. In keeping with the theme of tonight’s movie, the host bits were shot on the open road at various locations in Akron and Hudson, Ohio, in Dave’s car, where he and Holly lock horns with Dave’s wise-cracking GPS and finally run out of gas.

Saturday (12/03). 3:30 P.M. (ET)
PENINSULA OF HORROR
presents
THE GORILLA (1939)

PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN with Cnl. Graves and Smiley Bones presents THE GORILLA (1939). The Ritz Brothers (the poor man’s Marx Brothers) play bumbling detectives investigating a series of monkey-suit murders. Bela Lugosi plays yet another sinister butler. Lionel Atwill plays the rich guy who hires The Brothers to protect him. Patsy Kelly steals the show as Atwill’s ditzy maid. Believe it or not, this stinker was produced by Darryl F. Zanuck who produced an astounding 15 Academy Award nominated films. Need we add . . . this is not one of them!

Sunday (12/04). 9:00 P.M. (ET) [Time approximate.]
BEWARE THEATER
presents
Ed Wood’s PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People presents another gem from the golden age of black-and-white — Ed Wood’s PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959). A couple of pompous aliens in silk pajamas (Dudley Manlove and Joanna Lee) and their leader The Ruler (Bunny Breckinridge) plan to resurrect Bela Lugosi, Vampira, and Tor Johnson as slow moving zombies. Why? Because all you of Earth are idiots, that’s why! Bela died shortly before shooting began, so Ed used some footage he had of Bela, wrote a script around it, and persuaded his wife’s chiropractor (Tom Mason) to shoot the rest of the scenes with a cape hiding his face. Did he really think no one would notice? We’re sure Arachna is going to have a lot of fun with this post-Thanksgiving turkey!
