BEWARE THEATER presents HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND (1962)
Sunday (03/12). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BEWARE THEATER returns to The Vortexx with a brand new show and another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White! Tonight Arachna and Deadly will be presenting a Vortexx favorite -- HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND (1962). It's about a troupe of beautiful dancers who find themselves stranded on a deserted island with their square-shouldered manager Gary (Alex D'Arcy). Their skinny-dipping routine is disrupted when Gary gets bit by a spider and becomes . . . . Spider-Gaaaary. Oh, the horrors of it all! Note: Tonight's show will be followed by an encore presentation of Wednesday's SCREAMING SOUP review of Full Moon Entertainment's HEAD OF THE FAMILY.
THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE presents The Vortexx premiere of THE MISSING CORPSE (1945)
Monday (03/13). 9:00 P.M. (ET) THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and Kathleen Walder and special guests Geauga Dog & Shamu presents The Vortexx premiere of THE MISSING CORPSE (1945). A feud between two rival newspapermen named McDonald and Kruger ends with Ronald being murdered and his corpse planted in the trunk of Freddie's car. Freddie hides the corpse to avoid being charged with murder while he tries to find the real killer, but Ronald refuses to remain hidden. It's all played for laughs in this fast paced and entertaining comedy-mystery from Poverty Row Cinema (PRC). In keeping with the theme of tonight's "amusing" movie, the host bits were filmed at the Geauga Lake Amusement Park in Aurora, Ohio.
MONSTER MADHOUSE presents THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS (1959)
Tuesday (03/14). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MONSTER MADHOUSE with Karlos Borloff and a cast of thousands presents THE MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS (1959). The titular monster, who looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon on steroids, terrorizes a sleepy lighthouse town by ripping the heads off some of the locals. The Monster was created and played by Jack Kevan, who also produced this low-budget horror flick.
DEAD END DRIVE IN with Edgar von Ghoul presents LADY FRANKENSTEIN (1971)
Wednesday (03/15). 9:00 P.M. (ET) DEAD END DRIVE IN with Edgar von Ghoul presents a Vortexx favorite -- LADY FRANKENSTEIN (1971). It's a heart-warming, gut-churning story about a daughter's love for her dad. The daughter is Tania Frankenstein (Rosalba Neri aka Sara Bay), who takes up where dear old dad (Joseph Cotten) left off, after he is killed by his stripey-pants creation. It's two monsters for the price of one, as the doctor's horny daughter creates a handsome new creature for her sexual pleasure and then screws him on the operating table while the Universal mob storms the castle. Co-starring Mickey (Crimson Executioner) Hargitay and directed by Mel (Gravis Mushnik) Welles.
SCREAMING SOUP reviews RETURN TO HORROR HIGH (1987)
Note: Our Wednesday show will be followed by a new episode of SCREAMING SOUP. Tonight Deadwood & friends are reviewing the slasher comedy RETURN TO HORROR HIGH (1987).

Thursday (03/16). 9:00 P.M. (ET) SKUNKY CINEMA with Mortimer Van Creep presents Ed Wood's THE BRIDE AND THE BEAST (1958). It's one of the strangest love triangles ever depicted on film involving a man, a woman, and a gorilla named Spanky. You may be thinking there's no way this love story can end happily, but oddly enough it does! As an added bonus we will be watching Betty White go up against George (Ro-Man) Barrows in a 1957 episode of Date with the Angels entitled "The Gorilla".
MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT Riccardo Freda's THE GHOST (1963)
Friday (03/17). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris the Buzzard presents Riccardo Freda's THE GHOST (1963). The ghost in this ghost story is not just any ordinary ghost. It's the ghost of Dr. John Hitchcock of Horrible Dr. Hitchcock fame. Barbara Steele stars as his unfaithful wife, who plots against the doctor, now a cripple, with the help of her lover, while the lover plots against Babs with the help of the housekeeper. This sequel to Freda's 1962 classic has lots of atmosphere, lots of Babs, and a terrific twist ending.
The Vortexx presents SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE FROM HORRORHOUND WEEKEND with Dr. Sigmund Zoid (2017)
Saturday (03/18). 9:00 P.M. (ET) We interrupt our regular programming to bring you . . . SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE FROM HORRORHOUND WEEKEND! Dr. Sigmund Zoid will be representing The Vortexx in Cincinnati this year, and he's going to take a break from the partying and schmoozing to present a special live show along with Dwight and some special guests.

And, rest assured, if technical difficulties should arise, we will have a show and a movie as back up.

Sunday (03/19). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of TERROR OUT OF THE SKY (1978).
