The Vortexx premiere of
CAT WOMEN OF THE MOON (1953)

Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly present another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White -- CAT WOMEN OF THE MOON (1953). A group of astronauts, led by Sonny Tufts, travel to the moon where they discover it is inhabited by attractive young women in black tights and heavy eye makeup with names like Alpha, Beta, and Lambda. Little do they know that these catty gals are up to no good -- they plan to hijack the space ship! And for those who just didn't enough arachnid action last week, there's also a giant spider. Veteran bad-guy Victor Jory plays one of the astronauts. Marie Windsor, who is miscast as the sole female astronaut, reportedly said that that this was the only film she was ashamed of. Soon-to-be-famous composer Elmer Bernstein, who did the score, is misspelled in the title credits as "Elmer Bernstien."

NINJA DEATH 2 (1987)

Welcome to BORDELLO OF HORROR'S NINJULY IN AUGUST! Tonight Freakshow & friends will be presenting the second installment of their month-long series of martial arts films -- NINJA DEATH 2 (1987). Tonight's movie chronicles the continuing adventures of Tiger and "Master," as they battle the evil forces of The Grand Master. "Master" has been training Tiger long and hard for the fight against the invaders from Japan and has finally revealed the secrets behind his origin and his ties to the Grand Master. Armed with this knowledge and his new-found skills, Tiger must set out to defeat the forces of The Grand Master once and for all. Of course, we know that ain't gonna happen because there's a Ninja Death 3 coming our way next week. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Winning Ugly, and more! [Rescheduled from last week.]

presents
CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962)

TARR & FETHER'S PSYCHO CINEMA presents Herk Harvey's CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962). Shot on a budget of $33,000 and largely ignored at the time of its release, this film has since become a cult classic. Reminiscent in many ways of an elongated Twilight Zone episode, it relies more on atmosphere than on special effects to create a mood of unease and foreboding. Candace Hilligoss stars as Mary Henry, a young lady who survives a car accident and becomes drawn to a mysterious abandoned carnival. Director Harvey appears (uncredited) as the pale man who is stalking Mary.

Vortexx-Horror Hotel-201608018_Master Vyle

A 300-year-old witch needs annual virgin sacrifices in order sustain her immortality, and virgins are getting harder and harder to find! Starring Christopher Lee and directed by John Llewellyn Moxey (Night Stalker), this chilling tale about witchcraft in a small New England town was released in the same year as Psycho and has been compared to that film in several ways.

Join us tonight as THE LATE DR LADY SHOW with Dr. Lady and the Usual Suspects presents SNOWBEAST (1977) starring Bo Svenson, Clint Walker, Yvette Mimieux, and Sylvia Sidney. Big bad Bigfoot (well, actually his distant cousin) terrorizes a ski resort during a winter carnival, killing all of those folks who aren't wearing ugly hats and completely disrupting the Snow Queen ceremony. In addition to the movie, we will also be watching photos & videos of our chatters in their favorite ugly hats. [Movie poster by Sean Hartter courtesy of Saturday Fright Special.]

BLOODY PIT OF HORROR (1965)

Join us tonight as we welcome SICKO-PSYCHOTIC to the Vortexx! Sadistically sinister and ostentatiously outrageous, Sicko-Psychotic, King of Ghoulz, is a horror host based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Accompanied by a lascivious pet spider named Silky Harlot, the ol' ghoul presents schlock films on his freakish series, which is appropriately titled Sicko-Psychotic. Forced to project Sicko's favorite horror and trash flicks is a contemptuous talking camera obscura nicknamed "Cameo". During the movie breaks, the terrible threesome engage in wicked shenanigans which are further enhanced by loony relatives, bizarre acquaintances, and other colorful guests who drop into the Sick-Shack unexpectedly. Tonight Sicko and his co-hosts will be presenting a movie that needs no introduction -- BLOODY PIT OF HORROR (1965) starring Mickey Hargitay as The Crimson Executioner. Sicko promises that he will be lurking in the live chat room during the show. Perhaps some of our chatters can draw him out!

Welcome to The Vortexx - A Special Friend of House of Tortured Souls

By Woofer McWooferson

The Vortexx 5 years header

House of Tortured Souls would like to welcome The Vortexx as a friend of the House. Please give a warm welcome to those crazy horror hosts at The Vortexx and check out their shows this week.

The Vortexx Hosts

Welcome to THE VORTEXX where it's ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME! We've got another great line-up of hosts, shows, and movies for your viewing and chatting pleasure this week, with two movies making their Vortexx debut along with some cool indie films and several returning favorites. Our hosts are Doctor Mortose, Freakshow & the Bordello gang, Edgar von Ghoul, The Reaper, Dr. Lady & the Usual Suspects, Rizzle MaNizzle the Clown, Lord Blood-Rah, and Bobby Gammonster & Boris the Buzzard. Please note that during the month of June, we will be adding a Sunday show to our weekly line-up, so there will be a featured movie and moderated chat every night of the week. Enjoy the shows and thanks for hanging out!

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Doctor Mortose

DOCTOR MORTOSE COMMANDS
presents
SCARED TO DEATH (1980)

Monday (6/6). 9:00 P.M. (ET). DOCTOR MORTOSE COMMANDS presents The Vortexx premiere of SCARED TO DEATH (1980). No, folks, this is not the Bela Lugosi movie from the 1940s that we've aired a few times before. This film by Bill Malone, who was the chief designer at the Don Post mask studios, is about a genetic experiment gone horribly wrong. The result is an Alien-like creature with an appetite for spinal fluid called Syngenor (Synthesized Genetic Organism).

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Bordello of Horror

BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
MONSTER OF GOLDEN GATE (2013)

Tuesday (6/7). 9:00 P.M. (ET). BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, and Ali Katt presents MONSTER OF GOLDEN GATE (2013). This throwback to those awesome black-and-white cheesy monster movies of the ‘50s and ‘60s was directed by Renya Young better known to horror fans as Miss Misery, the host of Movie Massacre. Freaky will kick off the show with two short indie horror films -- Hi Neighbor directed by Chad Halvorsen and Frigid Night directed by Robby McBride. There will also be interviews from the Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Film Festival with Christopher Kai House, Michael Viers, Alice Wilson, Hart Fisher, James Bett Jr and Kevin Jamison, as well as musical guests Kitty in a Casket.

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Your Final Answer & Midnight Chillers

WEDNESDAY DOUBLE FEATURE:
YOUR FINAL ANSWER and MIDNIGHT CHILLERS
present
GURU: THE MAD MONK (1971)

Wednesday (6/8). 9:00 P.M. (ET). Join us tonight for a WEDNESDAY DOUBLE FEATURE! We kick off the evening with a generous serving of YOUR FINAL ANSWER -- a weekly comedy series (2-3 minutes per episode) hosted by The Reaper who answers Q&As from his viewers. He's bumbling, idiotic, has a habit of never getting around to an answer -- and is absolutely hilarious. Next up is MIDNIGHT CHILLERS with Edgar von Ghoul, who will be presenting The Vortexx premiere of Andy Milligan's GURU: THE MAD MONK (1971). It's about a deranged chaplain at a 15th-century prison colony, who's got a vampire mistress and a one-eyed hunchback servant named (of course) Igor. Edgar's special guest tonight is former disc jockey Ray Green, whose main claim to fame is being one of the first to interview Elvis Presley (on his radio show in May 1956) -- and the first to record an Elvis concert in its entirety.

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Late Dr. Lady

THE LATE DR LADY SHOW
presents
CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS (1972)

Thursday (6/9). 9:00 P.M. (ET). THE LATE DR LADY SHOW with Dr. Lady and the Usual Suspects presents a Vortexx favorite -- CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS (1972). Although dismissed at the time of its release as just "another zombie movie," this film has since been recognized as being years ahead of its time in its frank depiction of same-sex undead marriage. It's about a group of friends who go to an island to act out a satanic rite involving a corpse they name Orville. Needless to say, it all goes horribly awry. Director Bob Clark would go on to bigger and better things with Porky's and A Christmas Story.

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Rizzle MaNizzle
RIZZLE'S FUNHOUSE OF LUNACY DOUBLE FEATURE!
GLEN OR GLENDA? (1953)
and
BLOODY PIT OF HORROR (1965)

Friday (6/10). 9:00 P.M. (ET). Join us tonight for a RIZZLE'S FUNHOUSE OF LUNACY DOUBLE FEATURE! First up is Ed Wood's GLEN OR GLENDA (1953) starring Ed himself as Glen, a tortured soul who is afraid to tell his wife (real-life girlfriend Dolores Fuller) that he enjoys putting on Angora sweaters and going out at night as Glenda. Bela Lugosi is also on hand, sitting in an easy chair in a room full of skulls, shrunken heads, and voodoo dolls, and uttering non sequiturs such as "pull ze string!" Then be sure stick around as Rizzle and co-hosts Midnight Murray and The Crimson Executioner present BLOODY PIT OF HORROR (1965) like you've never seen it before. There will be plenty of voiceovers, cartoons, accordion music and other audio goodies, and CE will be trying his hand as Uncle Crimmie, host of a children's show at the Crazy Castle of Lunacy, and as an anchor man on Crimson Action News. We guarantee you'll all be scratching your heads in total amazement! [CE artwork courtesy of Doc Mortose.]

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Lord Blood-Rah

LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE
presents
TRACK OF THE MOON BEAST (1976)

Saturday (6/11). 9:00 P.M. (ET). LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE presents TRACK OF THE MOON BEAST (1976). After a beefy young mineralogist (Chase Cordell) gets boinked in the head by a meteor fragment, he is transformed into a hideous lizard-like monster whenever the moon comes out. Badly paced and badly shot, with a badly constructed story and a mostly talentless cast playing cardboard characters, its one saving feature is that soon-to-be-famous Rick Baker designed the beast. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will be spicing up the mix with some cool trailers and a Cranial Cavity Search.

20150606-12_The Vortexx - Bobby Gammonster

MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT
presents
EMBRYO (1976)

Sunday (6/12). MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris The Buzzard presents EMBRYO (1976). You don't have a lot of opportunities to see Rock Hudson in The Vortexx, let alone Rock Hudson playing a mad scientist, so come on by tonight and enjoy! In tonight's movie Doc Rock figures out a way to grow a fetus into adulthood within a matter of weeks, and, of course, things soon go horribly wrong. Sultry Barbara Carrera co-stars, with guest appearances by Roddy McDowall and Dr. Joyce Brothers.

"Every day is a good day that ends in the Vortexx."
