THE VORTEXX: COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN

2. Vortexx Halloween theme (1) / The VortexxObviously, Halloween is a special time of the year for the denizens of The Vortexx, your home away from home for horror hosts, B-movies, and cult flicks. In celebration of the Season of the Witch, we've put together a great line-up of Halloween-themed shows starting on October 20 and continuing through All Hallows' Eve itself. Unless otherwise indicated, each show begins at 9 (ET). Please come on by, enjoy our shows, and if you are so inclined, join our friendly chatters in The Vortexx chat room. You can find us at horrorhost.net.
4. Oct 20. Night Chills Theatre / The VortexxOur Countdown to Halloween kicks off on Friday, October 20, with THE NIGHT CHILLS THEATRE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL. Host Vincent Grimmly and special guest Vlad give the deliciously cheesy Spanish horror thriller VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES (1973) the MST3K treatment. Horror great Paul Naschy stars in a triple role. Some gratuitous nudity, a little gore, and an undeniably groovy free-form jazz and progressive-rock score add to the fun.
5. Oct 21. Sicko Psychotic / The VortexxThe Countdown continues on Saturday, October 21, with SICKO-PSYCHOTIC'S TWISTED HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! In a tribute to the Silent Screams of yesteryear, Sicko is presenting two rare and seldom-seen classics -- Georges Méliè’s THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (1896) and the earliest surviving version of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (1912) -- followed by Sicko's twisted and tasteless alteration of THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920).
6. Oct 22. Sir Graveson Show / The VortexxThen come back on Sunday, October 22, at approx. 10:30 (ET) as THE SIR GRAVESON SHOW presents a SPECIAL HALLOWE'EN SPECIAL. Sir Graveson and his friends attempt to have a knock-out Halloween show, but a pesky casket salesman keeps interfering! In addition to some delightful host bits, this one-hour show will include movie trailers and clips, cartoons, vintage TV commercials, and musical guests The Petty Ghouls.
7. Oct 24. Vortexx Halloween Show 2016 / The VortexxThe Countdown continues on Tuesday, October 24, with a VORTEXX HALLOWEEN PARTY from 2016. Our Monster of Ceremonies will be Mortimer Van Creep, host of SKUNKY CINEMA, who will be presenting CARRY ON SCREAMING (1966), the twelfth installment of the long-running British "Carry On" series. It's a hilarious parody of the Hammer horror films of the 1960s starring Kenneth Williams and Fennella Fielding.
8. Oct 25. Mummy TV Halloween Show / The VortexxOn Wednesday, October 25, our ancient host Mr. Mummy continues our Halloween celebration with MUMMY TV HALLOWEEN TRICKS & TREATS. Mr. Mummy likes to keep the details of his upcoming shows under wraps (so to speak), but based on his previous holiday specials we're guessing that Mr. Mummy will be entertaining us with a plethora of Halloween-themed cartoons, trailers, retro TV commercials, and original song parodies -- some of which may well feature members of The Vortexx staff! There will be a spotlighted Vortexxian who will be revealed at the start of the show. Last time 'round it was The Crimson Executioner; who will it be tonight?
9. Oct 29. Vortexx Halloween Show 2015 / The VortexxThe Countdown swings into high gear on Sunday, October 29, with A VORTEXX HALLOWEEN, a re-broadcast of our 2015 Halloween show. Mortimer Van Creep will once again be our Monster of Ceremonies, and he has a couple of very creepy movies lined up for us tonight -- BLACK SABBATH (1964), a trilogy of terror from Mario Bava starring Boris Karloff, and Mary Roberts Rinehart's THE BAT (1959) starring Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead. In addition, there will be special appearances by some of your favorite horror hosts and Vortexx denizens, along with numerous other extras and special features.
10. Oct 30-31. Morty's Monster Party (1) / The VortexxWe conclude our Halloween festivities with MORTY'S MONSTER PARTY! This brand-new Halloween show featuring a collection of Mort's Monster Shorts is so overwhelming that we're airing it in two parts on two successive nights -- Monday, October 30, and Tuesday, October 31. If you're not familiar with Mort's "shorts," they're 9-10 minute versions of classic horror movies from the '30s, '40s, and '50s originally released on 8mm and 16mm film by Castle Films. Although the originals are under copyright, these abbreviated home movies are not!
11. Oct 30-31. Morty's Monster Party (2) Movies / The VortexxAmong the "treats" in store for you are the Universal's original Frankenstein (1931), Dracula (1931), and The Mummy (1932), along with Universal classics from the 1940s such as The Wolf Man" (1941) and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) and classic sci-fi thrillers from the 1950s such as Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers (1956) and The Deadly Mantis (1957).
12. Oct 30-31. Morty's Monster Party (3) Hosts / The VortexxAnd if that isn't awesome enough, each movie will be presented by one of our horror hosts. The hosts who have signed up so far include Arachna of the Spider People, Bobby Gammonster, Charley Macorn, Master Vyle, PumpkinMan, Sicko-Psychotic, Uncle Edward, and Wolfie from the Late Dr Lady Show, as well as several hosts on the Vortexx staff -- Dr. Sigmund Zoid, Sluggo, Cerberus, and Destroyah.
3. Vortexx Halloween theme (2) / The VortexxWhether it be Halloween or any other day or night of the year, if you're in the mood for entertainment -- or just want to relax and unwind -- the Vortexx is here for you. Our movies run 24/7, our chat room is open day and night, and we have a featured movie and a moderated chat at 9 (ET) every night of the week. We’ve been around for seven years, and we'll keep the doors open as long as you keep coming around. Happy Halloween!
