VORTEXX SCHEDULE FOR JANUARY 22 – 29, 2017

Welcome to The Vortexx where it's been ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME FOR SIX YEARS!

THE VORTEXX! SIX YEARS STRONG!!!!!

Welcome to THE VORTEXX where it's ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME! We've got a terrific line-up of hosts, shows, and movies this week, including three new movies making their Vortexx debut, along with several returning favorites and a trip to The Peninsula of Horror on Saturday. Our hosts this week are Misty Brew, Bobby Gammonster & Boris the Buzzard, Freakshow & the Bordello gang, Edgar von Ghoul, Deadwood, Uncle Pete, Dave Binkley & Holly Schilthelm, Arachna & Deadly, and (at the Peninsula of Horror) Professor Gillman and Master Vyle. Enjoy our shows and thanks for hanging out!

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of ANTS! (1977)

Sunday (01/22). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of ANTS! (1977) aka It Happened at Lakewood Manor. Robert Foxworth, Suzanne Somers, Lynda Day George, Bernie Casey, Myrna Loy, and Brian Dennehy are among the stars in this TV movie about an army of poisonous ants that attack the residents of an old-fashioned lakeside hotel targeted for purchase by an unsavory gambling casino promoter. This was one of several movies made during the late 1970s to capitalize on the popularity of Jaws. Tonight's show will be followed at approximately 10:45 by an encore presentation of last Wednesday's episode of SCREAMING SOUP (DEADGIRL).

MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT presents Larry Buchanan's IN THE YEAR 2889 (1967)

Monday (01/23). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris the Buzzard presents Larry Buchanan's IN THE YEAR 2889 (1967). Although the movie's title is taken from a Jules Verne novel of the same name, it's actually a remake of Roger Corman's Day the World Ended (1955), and the story is set in the year 1977. A nuclear war has wiped out most of the human race, and a group of survivors in a Dallas mansion find themselves beset by rising radiation levels, a ruthless tough guy, and cannibalistic mutants. You heard right, folks -- cannibalistic mutants. It don't get any better than that! Former child actor Paul Petersen (The Donna Reed Show) stars as the lead survivor.

BORDELLO OF HORROR presents TRACK OF THE MOON BEAST (1976)

Tuesday (01/24). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Beelzabroad 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. Along with the movie, Freaky will be presenting footage from the March 2015 Horrorhound Weekend including the Horror Host Hall of Fame awards, interviews with producer Paul Travers from Old 37 and Fred Vogel from Toe Tag Productions, and music by The Renfields.

DEAD END DRIVE-IN presents The Vortexx premiere of KEEP MY GRAVE OPEN (1974)

Wednesday (01/25). 9:00 P.M. (ET) DEAD END DRIVE-IN with Edgar von Ghoul returns to the Vortexx for its second appearance! Tonight Edgar will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of KEEP MY GRAVE OPEN (1974) aka The House Where Hell Froze Over. This slow-moving but creepy thriller from S. F. Brownrigg, the director of Don't Look in the Basement, re-unites Basement cast members Camilla Carr and Gene Ross. Carr, who would later go on to become a successful novelist, stars as Lesley Fontaine, a troubled young woman who lives in an isolated farm estate miles from the nearest town. Murders are being committed in the vicinity, and Someone is responsible. Is it Lesley? Or perhaps her brother Kevin (Chelcie Ross), who may be real or may be a product of Lesley's overworked imagination. Gene Ross (Judge Oliver W. Cameron in Basement) plays Lesley's compassionate doctor. Larry Buchanan favorite Bill Thurman plays a hitchhiker looking for food, who becomes one of the victims.

SCREAMING SOUP reviews THE GREEN SLIME (1968)

Wednesday (01/25). 10:45 P.M. (ET) [Time approximate.] We welcome SCREAMING SOUP back to The Vortexx for its second appearance! Now entering its fourth season, this animated horror host show specializes in raunchy movie reviews. In tonight's episode our host Deadwest reviews THE GREEN SLIME (1968) while his friends try to defuse his rage over the film's lameness. The film itself might be lame and the monsters laughably ridiculous, but it's got one of the catchiest title songs in movie history. In addition to Deadwood, tonight's cast includes Billy, Eb'nstein, Deadbeat, Doc Rex, and Aleena.

UNCLE PETE'S DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN presents The Vortexx premiere of ABBY (1974)

Thursday (01/26). 9:00 P.M. (ET) Join us tonight as we welcome THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN with Uncle Pete back to The Vortexx. Now in its 9th year of Cult Movie Madness, this great show is broadcast on local cable on various stations in New York State, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire and is now spreading like The Blob throughout the Northeast. Tonight Uncle Pete will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of ABBY (1974). Think Blackula meets The Exorcist, and you have some idea of what this movie is all about. William (Blackula) Marshall stars as a bishop/archaeologist who unknowingly brings back a demon from Africa that takes over the body of his daughter-in-law. Released one year after The Exorcist, Warner Brothers wasn't too happy about this blatant rip-off, and their subsequent lawsuit kept the movie out of circulation for years.

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE presents NO HANDS ON THE CLOCK (1941)

Friday (01/27). 9:00 P.M. (ET) THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and Holly Schilthelm presents NO HANDS ON THE CLOCK (1941). Chester Morris, best known for playing jewel thief-turned-detective Boston Blackie in fourteen films during the 1940s, plays another detective in tonight's comedy-mystery released the same year as the first two Boston Blackie movies. In this one he is wise-cracking private detective Humphrey Campbell who impresses his boss no end by not only finding a missing girl (Jean Parker) but also marrying her in the process. But just as their honeymoon in Reno, Nevada, gets underway, Campbell is dragged into another missing person case, invoking the suspicions of his jealous bride as he investigates an assortment of blondes, brunettes, and redheads. In keeping with the theme of the movie title, tonight's episode was shot at Time Zone, a clock repair shop in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

THE PENINSULA OF HORROR presents DOUBLE DANGEROUS CHAT NIGHT

Saturday (01/28). 8:00 P.M. (ET) Join us tonight as THE PENINSULA OF HORROR -- the showcase for Florida's finest horror hosts -- presents DOUBLE DANGEROUS CHAT NIGHT! First up at 8 (ET) HOUSE OF MASTER VYLE PRESENTS will be hosting DELIGHTFULLY DANGEROUS (1945) starring fifteen-year-old Jane Powell as a young music school student who discovers that her big sister (Constance Moore) is a burlesque queen and not a celebrated Broadway star. Then stick around at 10:30 (ET) for the ultimate stoner movie REEFER MADNESS (1936). We guarantee the joint will be jumping tonight, so come on by for a smoking good time! As always, Professor Gillman will be broadcasting live from Lagoon House throughout the evening. A preshow for the Early Boids featuring Master Vyle's new MiniSode HAPPY NATIONAL TATER TOT DAY will air at 7 (ET).

PLEASE NOTE: Tonight's feature will be aired on The Peninsula of Horror's Livestream channel -- livestream.com/tpoh. Viewers who show up on The Vortexx channel Saturday night will be re-directed there, so you can save yourself a couple of steps by going directly to The Peninsula of Horror. We will be doing the chat through Chattango -- https://thepeninsulaofhorror.chatango.com/.... To see both the show and the chat, you need to have two windows open, one with the Peninsula and one with the chat.

BEWARE THEATER presents Herk Harvey's CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962)

Sunday (01/29). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly returns to The Vortexx with a brand-new episode and yet another monochromatic marvel from the Golden Age of Black & White. Tonight our hosts will be presenting 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. Tonight's show will be followed at approximately 10:45 by an encore presentation of last Wednesday's episode of SCREAMING SOUP (THE GREEN SLIME).

Welcome to The Vortexx where it's been ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME FOR SIX YEARS!

Welcome to The Vortexx where it's ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME! We've got a terrific line-up this week, with two movies making their Vortexx debut along with several returning favorites. Be sure to come by on Thursday for the MUMMY TV CHRISTMAS SHOW and on Saturday for the "RIGGOR MORTISS PRESENTS" MARATHON, an all-day fundraising event co-sponsored by The Vortexx and The Eerie Late Night Horror Channel.

Enjoy the shows and thanks for hanging out!

CHRISTMAS DADDY will make all your Christmas wishes come true!

Christmas is little more than a month away, and that means our very own bearer of Yuletide gifts CHRISTMAS DADDY will be coming to The Vortexx soon to make your Christmas wishes come true. A new slack module . . . a membership in the Puppy of the Month Club . . . a Dr Lady action figure . . . a singing Sluggo plushie that also does lap dances. . . . Those are just a few of the wonderful gifts that Christmas Daddy has given to our viewers in years past. Whatever your wish may be this year, just send an e-mail to Christmas Daddy at The Vortexx North Pole and he'll do his very best to make it happen. You can reach Christmas Daddy at christmasdaddy@horrorhost.net

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of Arthur Conan Doyle's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1939)

Sunday (12/11). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of Arthur Conan Doyle's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1939). The game is afoot tonight as Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce star in the first (and arguably the best) of the fourteen movies that they would make together as Sherlock Holmes and his bumbling sidekick Dr. Watson between 1939 and 1946. Richard Greene (who received top billing when the movie was released) co-stars as Sir Henry Baskerville, the heir to the cursed Baskerville estate. Cast members under suspicion include horror veterans Lionel Atwill as Dr. James Mortimer and John Carradine as Barryman the butler. Misty's show will be preceded by a MOVIE HOUSE HOT TAKE with Ron Purtee. Tonight Ron takes a few moments to talk about Kevin Smith's new horror-comedy YOGA HOSERS (2016).

FORMERLY CRAPPICS presents The Vortexx premiere of LADY IN THE DEATH HOUSE (1944)

Monday (12/12). 9:00 P.M. (ET) FORMERLY CRAPPICS with Freezer Mortis presents The Vortexx premiere of LADY IN THE DEATH HOUSE (1944). Veteran B-movie villain Lionel Atwill is the good guy this time in the role of a criminologist investigating the case of a woman (Jean Parker) wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to die in the chair. In a weird twist, the executioner (Douglas Fowley) is also her boyfriend. Will Lionel find the real killer in time to save the poor woman? If you don't know the answer to that question, you haven't watched enough B-movies! Because of the relatively short length of tonight's movie, Freezer will be adding a second short feature in the same crime drama vein as the main feature.

BORDELLO OF HORROR presents Al Adamson's BRAIN OF BLOOD (1974)

Tuesday (12/13). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Beelzabroad presents Al Adamson's BRAIN OF BLOOD (1971). Kent Taylor stars as a mad scientist who transplants the brain of a dying ruler into the body of the scientist's hulking, imbecilic, acid-scarred servant Gor (John Bloom). Much mayhem ensues. Wee person Angelo Rossito plays the scientist's maniacal assistant Dorro. Zandor Vorkov (actually stockbroker Roger Engel), best known as the blue-faced Count Zappula from Adamson's Dracula vs. Frankenstein, also makes an appearance. Along with the movie Freaky will be presenting special musical guest Kitty in a Casket, a movie review with Mark "The Movie Maniac" from The Final Cut, and more!

DEMENTED FEATURES WITH DANVERS presents F. W. Murnau's NOSFERATU (1922)

Wednesday (12/14). 9:00 P.M. (ET) DEMENTED FEATURES with Danvers and special guest Count Gore de Vol presents F. W. Murnau's silent classic NOSFERATU (1922). Max Schreck plays the blood sucking vampire count in one of the first -- and definitely one of the scariest -- screen adaptations of Bram Stoker's Dracula. For legal reasons, the filmmakers had to call him Count Orlok, but trust us folks he's really Dracula. In addition to the movie, Danvers will be presenting the trailer for VARNEY THE VAMPIRE (OR, THE FEAST OF BLOOD), based on the "penny dreadful" serialized novel from the 1840s.

MUMMY TV CHRISTMAS SHOW!

Thursday (12/15). 9:00 P.M. (ET) We welcome Mr. and Mrs. Mummy back to The Vortexx with the MUMMY TV CHRISTMAS SHOW! If you're feeling Grinchy this year, never fear. Mr. and Mrs. Mummy have the cure! Last year's Christmastime favorite is back -- a special two-hour edition of Mummy TV's Episode #9 Christmas Spirits. We guarantee it'll make your heart grow three sizes larger! Once again, the highlight of the show will be SANTA AND THE THREE BEARS (1970) -- a 45-minute animated feature with a warm Christmas-y feeling throughout. Tonight's show will be a cornucopia of Holiday/Christmas themed goodness, including movie trailers, retro TV commercials, cartoons, and, of course, music. You won't be hearing White Christmas for the millionth time tonight, but the Mummys will be entertaining us with their own holiday music Christmas Balls which they play only one time each year.

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE presents ONE BODY TOO MANY (1944)

Friday (12/16). 9:00 P.M. (ET) THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-host Shannon Steele presents ONE BODY TOO MANY (1944). Bela Lugosi plays yet another sinister butler in this lighthearted murder mystery starring Jack Haley (best remembered as the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz) as an insurance salesman who is hired to guard the body of an eccentric millionaire the night his will is to be read. In keeping with the theme of tonight's movie, this episode was filmed at the Slate Farm Insurance Co. (not to be confused with a well-known agency with a similar name), where Dave and Shannon meet Mike the Insurance Man. And be sure to get there on time tonight so you don't miss a special appearance by Dale Kay.

THE "RIGGOR MORTISS PRESENTS" MARATHON!

Saturday (12/17). 10:00 A.M. (ET) on the Eerie Late Night Horror Channel and 9:00 P.M. (ET) in The Vortexx. We invite all our viewers to join us today and tonight for THE "RIGGOR MORTISS PRESENTS" MARATHON -- a special benefit event co-sponsored by The Vortexx and the Eerie Late Night Horror Channel. Riggor is suffering from a cancerous tumor and needs help paying his medical bills. We hope that all our viewers will show their appreciation for this great host by watching his shows and making a donation to his GoFundMe page. No donation is too small! The marathon begins on Eerie Late Night at approximately 10AM and continues all day until 9PM when we will all head over to The Vortexx to watch Riggor, his charming co-host Nyte Angel, and special guest Dr. Sigmund Zoid present KING OF THE ZOMBIES (1941) starring Mantan Moreland, Henry (Freaks) Victor, Dick Foran, and Joan Woodbury.

BEWARE THEATER presents Roger Corman's A BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959)

Sunday (12/18). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another monochromatic marvel from the Golden Age of Black & White -- Roger Corman's A BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959). In his only starring role, veteran character actor Dick Miller plays Walter Paisley, a coffeehouse busboy who gains recognition and respect as an artistic genius after he accidentally kills his cat and covers it with plaster. And now everyone's dying (literally!) to see his next creation. Corman regulars Bruno (Fat Dave) VeSota, Antony Carbone, and Barboura Morris add great support in this delightfully campy movie, while Julian Burton hams it up as the ultimate beat poet Maxwell H. Brock. Look for Bert Convey as the undercover narc who finds himself on the wrong end of Walter's frying pan. Arachna's show will be preceded by a MOVIE HOUSE HOT TAKE with Ron Purtee. Tonight Ron's new director has decided that he should talk about the 1985 HBO "classic" BLACKOUT.

BEWARE THEATER presents Ed Wood's PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959)

Sunday (12/4). 9:00 P.M. (ET) 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!

MOVIE HOUSE HOT TAKE presents SHUT IN (2016)

Please Note: Arachna's show will be preceded by a MOVIE HOUSE HOT TAKE with Ron Purtee. Tonight Ron takes a few moments to talk about the Canadian-made thriller SHUT IN (2016) starring Naomi Watts.

Monday (12/5). 9:00 P.M. (ET) RIGGOR MORTISS PRESENTS with Riggor and Nyte Angel presents Mario Bava's THE MASK OF SATAN (1960). Scream queen Barbara Steele plays a dual role as a vengeful witch who returns from the grave and the beautiful descendant whose body she wants to possess. On a personal note, Riggor is suffering from a cancerous tumor and needs help paying his medical bills. We hope that all who enjoy tonight's episode of Riggor Mortiss Presents will show their appreciation for this great host and this great show by making a donation to Riggor's GoFundMe page. No donation is too small!

BORDELLO OF HORROR presents DEVIL TIMES FIVE (1974)

Tuesday (12/6). 9:00 P.M. (ET) BORDELLO OF HORROR presents DEVIL TIMES FIVE (1974). Five psycho kids escape from a mental hospital and proceed to terrorize and kill a group of adults on a winter vacation at a remote mountain ski lodge. Hammers, axes, chains, and even a piranha and a snowman are all involved in the carnage. Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) plays one of the adults; former child actor Leif Garrett is one of the psycho kids. This is Mistress Malicious's debut show, folks, so don't miss it! In addition to the movie, Freakshow will be presenting musical guest DR.CHUD's X-Ward, a movie review by Mark The Movie Maniac from The Final Cut, and more!

ALTERNATIVE REALITIES presents WAR OF THE MONSTERS (1966)

Wednesday (12/7). 9:00 P.M. (ET) Thanksgiving may be officially over but were bringing it back tonight with the ALTERNATIVE REALITIES THANKSGIVING SHOW! Tonight Dr. Zoid and Sluggo are hosting WAR OF THE MONSTERS (1966) aka Gamera vs. Barugon, which first aired in The Vortexx as a special Thanksgiving episode on November 29, 2013. Gamera the Flying Turtle goes mano a mano against Barugon, the Demon Dog from Hell, in this second entry in the popular Gamera series. Needless to say, Tokyo takes its usual beating before Gamera finally saves the day.

CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO presents Dario Argento's DEEP RED (1975)

Thursday (12/8). 9:00 P.M. (ET) CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO presents Dario Argento's DEEP RED (1975). This stylish and imaginative shocker by the master of Italian horror was released a year before Suspiria. David Hemmings stars as an Englishman in Rome who witnesses a murder and then teams up with a feisty reporter to find the killer. He finds many of his avenues of inquiry cut off by new murders and begins to wonder how the murderer can track his movements so closely.

THE LATE DR. LADY SHOW presents Michael Winner's THE SENTINEL (1977)

Friday (12/9). 9:00 P.M. (ET) THE LATE DR. LADY SHOW with Dr. Lady and the Usual Suspects returns to The Vortexx to present Michael Winner's THE SENTINEL (1977). John Carradine plays a mute priest who guards the gates of Hell in this supernatural thriller, which also stars Chris (Fright Night) Sarandon, Cristina Raines, and Burgess Meredith. An all-star supporting cast includes Martin (Psycho) Balsam, Tom Berenger, Beverly D'Angelo, Richard Dreyfuss, Jose Ferrer, Ava Gardner, Jeff Goldblum, Arthur Kennedy, Jerry Orbach, Eli Wallach, and Christopher Walken. This movie generated some controversy when it was discovered that Winner had used real human oddities to play the misshapen characters in the memorable concluding scene.

LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE presents ATTACK FROM SPACE (1964)

Saturday (12/10). 9:00 P.M. (ET) LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE presents ATTACK FROM SPACE (1964). Paunchy superhero Starman must once again rescue the Earth -- this time from an invasion by an evil alien race called the Spherions. Dubbed and re-edited from the Super Giant featurettes of the late 1950s, this is an entertaining Japanese cheese fest with many unintended laughs. And we can depend on Lord Blood-Rah to liven things up with movie trailers, trivia, and other cool stuff, including we hope a cranial cavity search.

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of Arthur Conan Doyle's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1939)

Sunday (12/11). 9:00 P.M. (ET) MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of Arthur Conan Doyle's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1939).

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!

MISTY BREW'S
CREATURE FEATURE

presents
WHITE ZOMBIE (1932)


MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents WHITE ZOMBIE (1932) starring Bela Lugosi. It's the first zombie movie ever -- and still arguably one of the best! Fresh from his success in Dracula, Lugosi plays the evil Murder Legendre, who can control people with a little white powder, a hand clench, and a nasty glare. In addition to great sets (borrowed from Universal) and lots of living dead (courtesy of master makeup man Jack Pierce), there's some pretty weird music, some of it by Xavier Cugat. [Bela Lugosi artwork courtesy of Bradley Beard.]


We welcome MOVIE HOUSE with Ron Purtee to The Vortexx!

Tonight's episode of Misty Brew will be preceded by The Vortexx premiere of MOVIE HOUSE hosted by Ron Purtee. Born at an early age in the town of Racine, Wisconsin, Ron is a stand-up comedian, former host of a cable access show, and the director, writer, and producer of numerous short films. Tonight Ron takes a few moments to talk about the new Marvel film DOCTOR STRANGE. You can find additional movie reviews and other cool stuff at Ron's YouTube channel and at his website: patreon.com/ronpurtee

Monday (11/14). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
FORMERLY CRAPPICS
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
VOODOO MAN (1944)


FORMERLY CRAPPICS with Freezer Mortis presents The Vortexx premiere of VOODOO MAN (1944). Only rarely does Freezer offer us a feature film with even one truly notable actor. VOODOO MAN has three (count 'em, three!) legends of horror -- Bela Lugosi, George Zucco, and John Carradine. Sporting a goatee and a sorcerer's robe decorated with stars and crescents, Lugosi plays Dr. Richard Marlowe -- a mad scientist who is attempting to revive his long-dead wife by kidnapping young girls and draining them of their life essence. Carradine is the dim-witted servant who takes care of the zombified gals while the Master is away. Zucco is the local gas station owner who lures the hapless victims to Bela's place. VOODOO MAN! We'll drink to that!

Tuesday (11/15). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)


BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Marijohuana presents George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). This is a movie that needs no introduction, but we're going to give you one anyway. It's about six bickering humans and a sick little girl trapped in a farmhouse with an army of zombies outside. Ben wants to be boss of the upstairs. Cooper wants to be boss of the cellar. Sparks fly and assorted body parts get devoured before it all comes to a flesh-ripping gut-munching climax. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Eddie Ate Dynamite and more!

Wednesday (11/16). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
TOXIC TALES
WITH TIMBER WULFF

presents
VAMPYR (1932)


TOXIC TALES with Timber Wulff and co-hosts Mina Rowena the Vampire and Lucy Lovecraft the Ghoul presents Carl Theodor Dreyer's VAMPYR (1932). Released just one year after Tod Browning's Dracula, this German-French co-production, based loosely on Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla, is now regarded as a classic. Baron Nicolas de Gunzburg, a French-born Russian nobleman, financed the movie in return for the leading role of Allan Grey, a student of the occult who visits the village of Courtempierre, which is under the curse of a vampire. Meanwhile back at the Behead and Breakfast, Mina's sister comes to visit. Will Timber make it through VAMPYR? Or will he become lunch? Only one way to find out!

Thursday (11/17). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
STAR PILOT (1966)


REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAHEM with co-hosts Dr. Montag & Kato the Black Hornet and Ms. Atoz (who's seized dominion of the Manor) kicks off its 20th season with The Vortexx premiere of STAR PILOT (1966) aka 2+5: Mission Hydra. This Italian space opera, made on a shoestring budget with laughable special effects, was re-titled and released in the United States in 1977 to cash in on the Star Wars craze. Kirk Morris and Gordon Mitchell, both known for flexing their muscles in a series of sword-and-sandal epics, appear along with a cast of Italian unknowns in this tale of a spaceship from the constellation Hydra that crash lands in Rome. The aliens kidnap a prominent scientist, his daughter, several young technicians, and a pair of Asian spies and then take off with the earthlings for their home planet after their engine is repaired. Once in space, the pesky humans attempt to mutiny against their alien captors. Leontine May, who plays the scientist's sexy daughter Luisa, and Leonora Ruffo, who plays red-headed space-siren Kaena, provide the eye candy, wearing a variety of outfits so skimpy they could bring even a Vulcan out in a sweat.

Friday (11/18). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE
presents
Roger Corman's VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968)


THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD (GUY) MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-hosts Mike Novak and Ranger Jim (Vilk) presents Roger Corman's VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968). Marilyn Monroe wannabe Mamie Van Doren stars as Moana, the leader of a tribe of Venusian women who wear clamshell bikinis, worship a pterodactyl god, and spend a lot of time lying around the beach. This movie uses the same footage from the Russian-made Planet of Storms that Corman used three years earlier in Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet. Acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich directed the American scenes under the pseudonym Derek Thomas and also supplies the narration. In between segments of the movie, Dave and Mike go camping and fishing at Weirdnessville State Park, where they try to stay out of trouble with Ranger Jim.

Saturday (11/19). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
DEMENTED FEATURES
presents
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925)


DEMENTED FEATURES returns to the Vortexx with a brand-new episode! Tonight Danvers will be welcoming special guests Penny Dreadful & Garou as he hosts the 1925 silent classic PHANTOM OF THE OPERA starring Lon Chaney, Sr., and Mary Philbin. This is the first -- and undoubtedly the best -- adaptation of the Gaston Leroux novel. No Phantom has ever looked scarier than Chaney, the sets created by Maurice Tourneur are fantastic, and tonight's version is further enhanced by a rousing new musical score by Kevin MacLeod. In addition to the movie, Danvers will be presenting the first chapter of VARNEY THE VAMPIRE, based on the serialized novel first published in 1845-47 as a series of weekly cheap pamphlets known as "penny dreadfuls." Tonight's show concludes with a tribute to the king of horror hosts, Zacherley! [Phantom artwork courtesy of Bradley Beard.]

Sunday (11/20). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BEWARE THEATER
presents
THE MESA OF LOST WOMEN (1953)


BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another cinematic gem from the Golden Age of Black & White -- THE MESA OF LOST WOMEN (1953) starring Jackie (Uncle Fester) Coogan and George (Ro Man) Barrows in one of his rare non-gorilla roles. It's got mad scientists, gigantic spiders, voluptuous women, and dwarfs! How can any movie with a combination like that possibly go wrong? Join us tonight and you'll find out. [Movie poster by Sean Hartter courtesy of Saturday Fright Special.]

BEWARE THEATER
presents
Roger Corman's CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA (1961)


BEWARE THEATER returns to The Vortexx with a brand-new episode and another classic from the Golden Age of Black & White. Tonight Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly are hosting Roger Corman's CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA (1961). Anthony Carbone, doing his best Bogie imitation, plays small-time crook Renzo Capetto who hatches a scheme to steal the national treasury of a Caribbean island with the help of a mythical sea monster -- who turns out to be real. Betsy Jones-Moreland plays Renzo's girlfriend Mary-Belle Monahan. Ed Wain (actually Academy Award winning screenwriter Robert Towne) is agent Sparks Moran. Beach Dickerson steals every scene he's in as a guy who communicates with animal noises. Don't expect to be scared, because it's all played for laughs.

Monday (11/07). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
FORMERLY CRAPPICS
presents
THE ELECTION EVE SPECIAL
and The Vortexx premiere of
1984 (1984)


As the election season draws to an end, we all have a very crucial decision to make on this important evening. Are you going to watch cable or network news. . . . Or are you going to watch THE FORMERLY CRAPPICS ELECTION EVE SPECIAL with Freezer Mortis. Tonight Freezer will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of 1984, made in the year 1984 and starring John Hurt and Richard Burton. Much like the George Orwell novel, this film adaptation is bleak and dreary but it's created that way on purpose, unlike the usual bleak and dreary fare we air in The Vortexx. Freezer feels that tonight's movie doesn't emphasize the concept of "Ministries" quite as much as the novel, so he's going to remedy that deficiency with some special guest hosts, who will be reporting from various Ministries about what was actually happening in the year 1984. So those are your choices, folks. We hope you choose what you believe is best for yourself, your family, and our country.

Tuesday (11/08). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
THE ELECTION DAY SPECIAL
and The Vortexx premiere of
PRESIDENT WOLFMAN (2012)


Join us tonight for a BORDELLO OF HORROR ELECTION DAY SPECIAL! As the election returns roll in, Freakshow will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of Mike Davis's PRESIDENT WOLFMAN (2012). The President of the United States has been bitten by a werewolf and is loose on the streets of Washington on a killing rampage! This comedy-horror political satire is based on the 1973 movie Werewolf of Washington, which has been re-cut, re-dubbed, and beefed up with additional footage culled from more than one hundred government instructional shorts, classroom education movies, vintage stag reels, and other features that have fallen out of copyright -- and out of public favor. This is a one-of-a-kind movie that you won't want to miss!

Wednesday (11/09). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MIDNIGHT CHILLERS
presents
THE SADIST (1963)
Starring Arch Hall, Jr.


Arch Hall, Jr. returns to The Vortexx as MIDNIGHT CHILLERS with Edgar von Ghoul presents THE SADIST (1963). The character Arch plays in tonight's movie is definitely not the clean-cut, wholesome guy you saw in Eegah and Wild Guitar. In what is undoubtedly the best (and by far the scariest) movie role of his career, Arch plays crazed serial killer Charlie Tibbs, inspired by real life killer Charles Starkweather. Marilyn Manning (who played Arch's girlfriend Roxy in Eegah) is his teenage girlfriend Judy (inspired by Stark's real-life honey Caril Fugate) who's even more whacked out than he is. Together, Charlie and Judy terrorize a trio of high school teachers, who are on their way to a Dodgers game in Los Angeles when their car experiences engine trouble and they're forced to pull off the road to the gas station/junkyard where the two killers happen to be hiding out. Arch's convincing performance, a taut script and decent direction by James Landis, and outstanding camera work by soon-to-be famous cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond make this one our favorite Arch Hall, Jr. movie.

Thursday (11/10). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
CINEMA INSOMNIA
WITH MR. LOBO

presents
CREATURE (1985)


CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO presents CREATURE (1985). One of the many Alien rip-offs that popped up during the 1980s (they even used the same special-effects team), this movie at least benefits from an all-too-brief appearance by the great Klaus Kinski, a good musical score, a dash of nudity, and some pretty gory special effects (exploding heads, etc.). It's about some astronauts who land on Titan (the largest moon of Saturn) and encounter an alien being who transforms some of them into parasite-infected zombies (think Planet of the Vampires meets Night of the Living Dead). You can be sure that Mr. Lobo will add just enough spice to turn this cheese ball of a movie into a tasty treat!

Friday (11/11). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MANSION OF MYSTERY
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
THE KIDNAPPING OF THE PRESIDENT (1980)


The election may be over, but the political intrigue continues as MANSION OF MYSTERY with Scarlett Kaiju and CJ the Werewolf presents A VERY VORTEXX . . . KIDNAPPING?? Sluggo Gonzales, our Dear Leader and freely elected President of The Vortexx, has mysteriously disappeared. But not to worry, Scarlett and CJ are on the case, tracking down an all-star list of horror-host suspects to find out the truth. While our two hosts are thus engaged, Mrs. O'Brien, Mittens, and Ralphie stay behind in the Mansion to host The Vortexx premiere of THE KIDNAPPING OF THE PRESIDENT (1980) starring William (Capt. Kirk) Shatner as an intrepid U.S. Secret Service agent battling terrorists who have abducted the President of the United States (Hal Holbrook) during a diplomatic mission to Toronto. Veteran actors Van Johnson and Ava Gardner also star. Will Capt. Kirk and Scarlett & CJ succeed in rescuing the two presidents? If you're a fan of horror hosts (and who in The Vortexx isn't?), this is one episode you can't afford to miss!

Saturday (11/12). 8:00 P.M. (ET)
ALTERNATIVE REALITIES
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
Guy Gilray's SCREAM OF THE SASQUATCH (2006)


ALTERNATIVE REALITIES with Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo presents The Vortexx premiere of Guy Gilray's SCREAM OF THE SASQUATCH (2006). It's a family-friendly comedy (i.e., no harsh language or sexual content) about some morons hunting for Bigfoot and the challenges they face along the way. Renowned anthropologist and Bigfoot expert Dr. Seymour Rimbaud adds a veneer of respectability to the proceedings, discussing the possibility that Bigfoot might be real. Meanwhile back at Alternative Realities, Dr. Zoid discovers that a Sasquatch is on the loose in The Vortexx, and he enlists the services of veteran gator wrassler Virgil Grissom to track him down. Oregon-born artist-musician Guy Gilray, whose 2010 film It Came For Friendship But Found Food was a big hit when it aired in The Vortexx last January, shot tonight's film at Mount Hood National Forest in Oregon on an estimated budget of $5,000.

Sunday (11/13). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MISTY BREW'S
CREATURE FEATURE

presents
WHITE ZOMBIE (1932)


MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents WHITE ZOMBIE (1932) starring Bela Lugosi. It's the first zombie movie ever -- and still arguably one of the best! Fresh from his success in Dracula, Lugosi plays the evil Murder Legendre, who can control people with a little white powder, a hand clench, and a nasty glare. In addition to great sets (borrowed from Universal) and lots of living dead (courtesy of master makeup man Jack Pierce), there's some pretty weird music, some of it by Xavier Cugat.

presents
2016 HALLOWEEN SPECIAL


[Time Approximate.] Be sure to stick around after the radio show for the all-new ATOMIC AGE CINEMA 2016 HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! No movie or clip compilation tonight, folks. Just 30 minutes of hilarious hi-jinks courtesy of Dr. Calamari, Baron Mardi, Basement Boy, Woody, Reverend Polypus and special guests Kimera Minion, Joho, and Gabba D. Butt. There's a disturbance in the shack and the boys can't agree on what's causing it. Baron Mardi and Basement Boy say it's a ghost; Dr. Calamari thinks its something far more sinister -- Science! They decide to settle the argument by having a seance and calling on the Spirit of the Shack to find out who's right. Calamari's celebrity booger collection and Mardi's donkey porn tapes -- all 22,000 of them -- are riding on the outcome of their bet.

Monday (10/31). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
VORTEXX & SKUNKY CINEMA
presents
THE VORTEXX HALLOWEEN PARTY
and The Vortexx premiere of
CARRY ON SCREAMING (1966)


Join us tonight as we celebrate The Season of the Witch with our third annual VORTEXX HALLOWEEN PARTY! Our Monster of Ceremonies Mortimer Van Creep will kick off the celebration with a brand new episode of SKUNKY CINEMA. Tonight Morty will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of CARRY ON SCREAMING (1966). Kenneth Williams stars as the revived Dr. Watt and luscious Fennella Fielding is his vampirish sister in the twelfth installment of the long-running British "Carry On" series. Together they create two Frankenstein monsters named Oddbod and Oddbod Jr. who go around kidnapping hapless women. Mr. Hyde and a mummy join in the fun in this parody of the Hammer horror films of the 1960s. And for all you night owls, West Coasters, and Halloween junkies who took off work on November 1, the party continues at 11 (ET) with three full hours of MORT'S MONSTER SHORTS!

Tuesday (11/01). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
THE AMAZING MR. X (1948) aka The Spiritualist


BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, and Ali Katt presents THE AMAZING MR. X (1948) aka The Spiritualist. Turhan Bey and Richard Carlson star in this film noir about a grieving widow who is approached by a spiritualist (Bey) who claims he can help reach her lost love on "the other side." Is Mr. X a phony or is he the real deal? Join us tonight and find out. Carole Landis was originally scheduled to play the part of the grieving widow, but she committed suicide a few days before shooting began and popular World War II pin-up beauty Lynn Bari (aka "The Woo Woo Girl") was hired to take her place. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with footage from September's HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis, punk-rock musical guests The Jasons, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, and more!

Wednesday (11/02). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
TOXIC TALES WITH TIMBER WULFF
presents
WEREWOLF IN A GIRL'S DORMITORY (1961)


TOXIC TALES WITH TIMBER WULFF returns to the Vortexx with a brand-new episode! Tonight our good friend and chat room regular Timber Wulff will be hosting WEREWOLF IN A GIRL'S DORMITORY (1961) aka The Ghoul in School. Despite the cheesy title and the lack of a compelling shower scene, this Italian-Austrian co-production is actually a pretty decent movie. Several students at a girls school are murdered by a snarling, wolf-like creature. Who is the killer? Is it the new science teacher (Carl Schell)? Or the creepy caretaker (Peter Lorre look-alike Luciano Pigozzi)? Or maybe the head master (Curt Lowens)? We suspect that most of our viewers already know the answer to that question, but we're looking forward to seeing Timber Wulff's take on this venerable chestnut.

Thursday (11/03). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
THE MAGIC SERPENT (1966)


REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM with Remo and co-hosts Dr. Montag and Kato the Black Hornet presents The Vortexx premiere of THE MAGIC SERPENT (1966). This Kaiju-Ninja fantasy, based loosely on a famous Japanese folktale, is the movie that supposedly inspired George Lucas to make Star Wars. It's the story of Ikazuchi-Maru, a young prince in medieval Japan whose kingdom is overtaken and his family killed by an evil warlord. Years later the now-grown prince, having mastered the art of ninjutsu and toad magic thanks to an old hermit named Dojin Hiki, returns from exile to take back his kingdom, facing ghosts, ninjas, and the evil wizard Oroki-maru along the way. The conclusion is an all- out battle between the prince and the wizard, who transform themselves into (respectively) a giant frog and a giant serpent. Meanwhile back at the Manor the inter-dimensional portal that Dr. Montag created has opened up again, and Hoichi-Maru the Snake Goddess is on the loose.

Friday (11/04). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
THE LAST ALARM (1940)


THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and Mike Mace presents The Vortexx premiere of THE LAST ALARM (1940). Veteran character actor J. Farrell MacDonald has a rare starring role in this tale of a recently retired fire chief who becomes involved in the investigation of a series of suspicious fires. The finger of suspicion soon points to the keeper of an antiques shop that the chief's daughter has recently visited. The film uses footage of real fires and firemen rushing to fight them to add to the air of authenticity. In keeping with the theme of tonight's movie, the host segments were filmed at the Mansfield Fire Museum in Mansfield, Ohio.

Saturday (11/05). 8:00 P.M. (ET)
LORD BLOOD-RAH'S
NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE

presents
MONSTER FROM A PREHISTORIC PLANET (1967) aka Gappa: The Triphibian Monster


LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE presents MONSTER FROM A PREHISTORIC PLANET (1967) aka Gappa: The Triphibian Monster. Reminiscent of the 1961 British movie Gorgo, this Japanese production features the Gappa family -- a trio of giant "bird lizards" who live in a remote area of Obelisk Island in the South Pacific. Problems arise when an expedition from Tokyo kidnaps baby Dweezil Gappa, and angry parents Frank and Gail take out their frustrations by leveling the Japanese capital city. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will be spicing up the mix with an assortment of trailers and other cool extras, including we hope another Cranial Cavity Search!

Sunday (11/06). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BEWARE THEATER
presents
Roger Corman's CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA (1961)


BEWARE THEATER returns to The Vortexx with a brand-new episode and another classic from the Golden Age of Black & White. Tonight Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly are hosting Roger Corman's CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA (1961). Anthony Carbone, doing his best Bogie imitation, plays small-time crook Renzo Capetto who hatches a scheme to steal the national treasury of a Caribbean island with the help of a mythical sea monster -- who turns out to be real. Betsy Jones-Moreland plays Renzo's girlfriend Mary-Belle Monahan. Ed Wain (actually Academy Award winning screenwriter Robert Towne) is agent Sparks Moran. Beach Dickerson steals every scene he's in as a guy who communicates with animal noises. Don't expect to be scared, because it's all played for laughs.

VORTEXX SCHEDULE FOR 23 – 31 OCTOBER 2016

VORTEXX SCHEDULE FOR 23 – 31 OCTOBER 2016

By The Crimson Executioner
&
Woofer McWooferson

Welcome to The Vortexx where it's been ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME FOR SIX YEARS!




Halloween is now just a little over a week away, and our COUNT-DOWN TO HALLOWEEN begins with a full week of Halloween-themed programming, culminating next Monday (Halloween) with our third annual Vortexx Halloween Party! This week's line-up includes THREE movies making their Vortexx debut, an old-time haunted radio show, and a trip to the Peninsula of Horror on Saturday. We've got a powerhouse line-up of monsters -- vampires, zombies, witches & warlocks, ghosts, a werewolf, a mummy, Mr. Hyde, and a couple of oddball Frankenstein monsters -- to make your Halloween a week a memorable one. Our hosts are Arachna & Deadly, Vincent Grimmly, Freakshow & the Bordello gang, Bobby Gammonster & Boris the Buzzard, Dr. Zoid & Sluggo, Sicko Psychotic, Cnl. Graves & Smiley Bones, Master Vyle & Queman at the Pensinula of Horror, and Mortimer Van Creep hosting our Halloween Party. Enjoy the shows and Happy Halloween!

Sunday (10/23). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BEWARE THEATER
presents
NOSFERATU (1922)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black-and-White -- F. W. Murnau's NOSFERATU (1922). Max Schreck plays the blood sucking vampire count in one of the first -- and definitely one of the scariest -- screen adaptations of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Arachna has taken some creative license to make this silent movie . . . well, less silent. Nosferatu actually speaks, and there are also some sound effects, different music, and lots of scary fun. This episode was a big hit with our viewers when it aired in The Vortexx last April, and we're betting that you're going to enjoy it even more the second time round. Tonight show will be preceded by a tribute to Jim (The Colonel) Klink hosted by one of his closest friends -- Dale Kay, host of DALE KAY'S SPOOKSHOW. Jim passed away last year on October 24.

Monday (10/24). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
NIGHT CHILLS THEATRE
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES (1973)

NIGHT CHILLS THEATRE with Vincent Grimmly and his pet raven Phydeaux presents The Vortexx premiere of VENGEANCE OF THE ZOMBIES (1973). Paul Naschy plays a triple role in this stupendously bad but fun-to-watch Spanish horror thriller. Wearing a wig that makes him look like an Elvis impersonator, Naschy is hilariously miscast as Krishna, a charismatic Indian guru who may or may not be responsible for gang of murderous zombies on the loose in London. Naschy also plays Krishna's hideously disfigured brother Kantaka, and he sports some ridiculous looking horns playing The Devil himself. Argentinean beauty Mirta Miller plays the Guru's Indian girlfriend Kala. Some gratuitous nudity, a little gore, and an undeniably groovy free-form jazz and progressive-rock score add to the fun. Tonight's show will be preceded by Dale Kay's tribute to Jim (The Colonel) Klink, who passed away a year ago today on October 24, 2015.

Tuesday (10/25). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR
presents
HORROR HOTEL (1960)


BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Marijohuana presents a Vortex favorite -- HORROR HOTEL (1960) aka City of the Dead. 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. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with musical guests Bolonium, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, a special Bloody little secret short film, and more! Tonight's show will be preceded by Dale Kay's tribute to Jim (The Colonel) Klink. [Movie poster by Sean Hartter courtesy of Saturday Fright Special.]

Wednesday (10/26). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT
presents
THE GHOST (1963)


MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris the Buzzard presents THE GHOST (1963). Not just any ghost, mind you, but the ghost of Dr. 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. It's directed by Riccardo Freda, who had a great influence on both Mario Bava and Dario Argento. This movie has lots of atmosphere, lots of Babs, and a terrific twist ending, so don't miss it!

Thursday (10/27). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
ALTERNATIVE REALITIES
presents
THE MAD MONSTER (1942)


Our Countdown to Halloween continues tonight with the ALTERNATIVE REALITIES Halloween show from 2014. Tonight Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Suggo are hosting THE MAD MONSTER (1942) affectionately known to its fans as "Of Mice and Men and Werewolves," Glenn Strange, best remembered as the Frankenstein Monster in three Universal movies, plays Petro, a simple-minded handyman very reminiscent of the simpleton Lenny in the Steinbeck novel Of Mice and Men. Only this time a mad scientist (George Zucco) turns the simpleton into a werewolf!

Friday (10/28). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
SICKO-PSYCHOTIC
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
THE VAMPIRES' NIGHT ORGY (1973)


SICKO-PSYCHOTIC returns to The Vortexx to host the Vortexx premiere of THE VAMPIRES' NIGHT ORGY (1973). Imagine what Two Thousand Maniacs would have been like if Herschell Gordon Lewis had used vampires instead of southern rednecks, and you'll have a good idea of what tonight's movie is all about. It's a Spanish-Italian co-production directed by Leon Klimovsky, who also directed The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman and Monday night's Vengeance of the Zombies. This time, however, Klimovsky eschews his favorite go-to star Paul Naschy in favor of the lesser known Jack Taylor (the stripey-shirt guy in last week's Horror of the Zombies). It's about a busload of travelers who decide to spend the night in a nearby town when the bus driver suffers a fatal heart attack. At first the town seems to be uninhabited, but the travelers soon discover that it's populated by some (non-traditional) vampires who like to tear their victims to pieces. WARNING: Tonight's movie contains nudity and brutal violence and is definitely for adults only. So please keep the kids locked in the cellar tonight. It's the only safe place for them.

Saturday (10/29). 8:00 P.M. (ET)
PENINSULA OF HORROR
presents
WHAT IN THE SAMHAIN? CHAT NIGHT!


Join us tonight for a triple dose of HOUSE OF MASTER VYLE PRESENTS as THE PENINSULA OF HORROR -- the showcase for Florida's finest horror hosts -- celebrates its Third Anniversary with WHAT IN THE SAMHAIN? Chat Night! The main show starts at 8 (ET) as Master Vyle and Queman host THE GIANT GILA MONSTER (1959). They used a Mexican Beaded Lizard instead of a Gila Monster, and the movie lumbers along even more slowly than its title monster. But this low-budget gem has rock music, hot rods, skid marks, and plenty of unintentional laughs. Then stick around at 10 (ET) when Master Vyle and Queman return to host THE KILLER SHREWS (1959). Who cares if the shrews are really just dogs with rugs attached to them? This is a highly entertaining movie! The shrew action continues at Midnight (ET) as Master Vyle presents THE KILLER SHREWS (PILOT VERSION). It's the same movie but different host bits as Master Vyle presents the never-before-seen pilot version of his show. We must warn you, however, once you see this show, it can never be unseen! There will be a PreShow for the Early Boids -- THE GREAT GRUMPLIN'S HALLOWEEN SAFETY SHOW -- starting at 7 (ET).
PLEASE NOTE: Tonight's show will be aired on The Peninsula of Horror's Livestream channel -- livestream.com/tpoh Viewers who show up on The Vortexx channel Saturday night will be re-directed there, so you can save yourself a couple of steps by going directly to The Peninsula of Horror.

Sunday (10/30). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN
presents
TALES FROM THE HAUNTED RADIO


PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN with Cnl. Graves & Smiley Bones presents TALES FROM THE HAUNTED RADIO. Cnl. Graves and Smiley are back to celebrate Halloween again, this time with the Haunted Radio! Join us for audio tricks and treats as we listen to HP Lovecraft's Dunwich Horror, Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven, and the Washington Irving classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. But the chills aren't just for your ears as our two hosts also hit a Halloween Party and learn about Halloween Safety -- plus even more treats! This one is gonna be a lotta fun! Don't miss it!

Monday (10/31). 9:00 P.M. (ET)
VORTEXX HALLOWEEN PARTY: SKUNKY CINEMA
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
CARRY ON SCREAMING (1966)


Join us tonight as we celebrate The Season of the Witch with our third annual VORTEXX HALLOWEEN PARTY! Our Monster of Ceremonies Mortimer Van Creep will kick off the celebration with a brand new episode of SKUNKY CINEMA. Tonight Morty will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of CARRY ON SCREAMING (1966). Kenneth Williams stars as the revived Dr. Watt and luscious Fennella Fielding is his vampirish sister in the twelfth installment of the long-running British "Carry On" series. Together they create two Frankenstein monsters named Oddbod and Oddbod Jr. who go around kidnapping hapless women. Mr. Hyde and a mummy join in the fun in this parody of the Hammer horror films of the 1960s. And for all you night owls, West Coasters, and Halloween junkies who took off work on November 1, the party continues at 11 (ET) with three full hours of MORT'S MONSTER SHORTS!

GRAVE OF THE VAMPIRE (1974)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents GRAVE OF THE VAMPIRE (1974). Michael Pataki stars as Caleb Croft, one of the creepiest bloodsuckers you're ever going to see. No sparkly vampires tonight, folks. This guy really means business. William Smith plays Caleb's half-vampire, half-human son twenty-four years before Wesley Snipes did it in Blade. Writer David Chase would later go on to bigger and better things with The Sopranos.

Riccardo Fredi's SAMSON AND THE 7 MIRACLES OF THE WORLD (1961)

FORMERLY CRAPPICS with Freezer Mortis presents The Vortexx premiere of Riccardo Fredi's SAMSON AND THE 7 MIRACLES OF THE WORLD (1961). Freezer returns to his roots in the Italian sword-and-sandal genre in this tale of Maciste (renamed Samson in the American release) , who goes to China to rescue a princess and fight Tartar rebels. Former Tarzan Gordon Scott stars as the muscle-bound hero, while French-Japanese actress Yoko Tani plays the princess. Two capable leads, a decent director, and lavish exterior and interior sets (left over from the movie Marco Polo) help raise this film a notch above the usual sword-and-sandal fare of the early 1960s.

HORROR OF THE ZOMBIES (1974)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Marijohuana presents The Vortexx premiere of HORROR OF THE ZOMBIES (1974) aka The Ghost Galleon. This sequel to director Amando de Ossorio's successful and well-received The Blind Dead fails to measure up to the original. Its about a pair of bikini-glad fashion models aboard a phantom galleon who are chased in endless circles by eyeless ghouls wearing hoods. Turns out the ghouls are actually the skeletal remains of some excommunicated medieval Knights Templar, who were hanged and blinded for dabbling in black magic and Satan worship. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with musical guests The Anderson Brothers.

UNDEAD WEDNESDAY ZOMBIE DOUBLE FEATURE

Join us tonight for our UNDEAD WEDNESDAY ZOMBIE DOUBLE FEATURE! First up is MR. LOBO'S NON STOP MOVIE PARTY: ZOMBIES! -- a one-hour special which first aired on Mr. Lobo's new distribution network OSI 74 (Outer Space International). If you love zombies (and who doesn't?) , then you're not going to want to miss this one as Mr. Lobo presents clips and trailers from zombie movies of all sorts, ranging from classics such as White Zombie and Plan 9 to modern-day thrillers such as George Romero's original Dead trilogy and Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 and City of the Living Dead. Then stick around for more gut-munching zombie action as we present three of our favorite episodes of Kriss Hoffman's PROJECT Z: HISTORY OF THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE -- “Lt.” (the premiere episode), "Legend of the Zombie Queen," and "Ku Klux Zombies" starring our good friend Timber Wulff.

The Vortexx premiere of
SATAN'S SLAVE (1982)

REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM with Remo, co-hosts Dr. Montag and Kato the Black Hornet, and vault mistress Carlotta Nightshade presents The Vortexx premiere of SATAN'S SLAVE (1982). This little known cinema rarity from Indonesia was supposedly inspired by the cult classic Phantasm E. If you're expecting to see an Indonesian Tall Man, or Indonesian dwarfs, or a flying orb, you're going to be disappointed. But tonight's movie is actually a pretty creepy ghost story about a family attempting to deal with the recent death of the mother, who returns in spectral form after the family rejects their religion. A number of other folk also come back from the dead, and the evil forces at work get more and more powerful leading up to a genuinely terrifying conclusion in which all hell quite literally breaks loose. This is a "must see" for all fans of Indonesian horror, whoever and wherever they may be.

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE
presents
Roger Corman's THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (1954)

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-host Lisa Pierce presents Roger Corman's THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS. No, this isn't the 2001 Vin Diesel blockbuster that led to a lucrative franchise. It's a cheapo Corman production from 1954 about a man wrongly convicted of murder (future Academy Award nominee John Ireland), who kidnaps a woman (future Academy Award winner Dorothy Malone) and her Jaguar XK120 and then joins the annual Pebble Beach cross-border road race in an attempt to hightail it into Mexico. This was Corman's third film, and the first to be distributed by American International Pictures. Corman makes a cameo appearance as a state trooper, while Bruno (Fat Dave) Ve Sota, Snub Pollard (of Laurel & Hardy fame), and Jonathan (Seymour Krelburn) Haze appear in small roles as a truck driver, park caretaker, and Dorothy's rescuer. In keeping with the theme of tonight's movie, the host segments were shot at the Canton Classic Car Museum in Canton, Ohio.

William Castle's HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959)

SKUNKY CINEMA with Mortimer Van Creep and special guest Dr. Sigmund Zoid presents a Vortexx (and Mortexx) favorite -- William Castle's HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959). Vincent Price gives a stellar performance as the suavely malevolent host who offers his guests $10,000 if they can survive a night in the murderous mansion. Carol Ohmart co-stars as Vinnie's scheming wife, and Elisha Cook, Jr. plays the timid owner of the house. The eerie looking home used for the exterior shots is the Ennis Brown house in Los Angeles, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which was later used in Blade Runner and Rocketeer.

George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). This is a movie that needs no introduction, but we're going to give you one anyway. It's about six bickering humans and a sick little girl trapped in a farmhouse with an army of zombies outside. Ben wants to be boss of the upstairs. Cooper wants to be boss of the cellar. Sparks fly and assorted body parts get devoured before it all comes to a flesh-ripping gut-munching climax. We know you've seen this movie more than a few times before, but tonight Arachna will be breathing new life into this venerable old chestnut with frequent host inserts and biting humor.

The legendary outlaw, on the run from the law, hides out in the castle of Baron Frankenstein's granddaughter Maria. A chip off the old Frankenstein block, Maria performs a brain transplant on Jesse's wounded pal Hank and, for reasons known only to her, promptly re-names him Igor. Directed by the infamous William "One Shot" Beaudine, tonight's movie and its companion piece Billy the Kid Versus Dracula were One Shot's last theatrical films.

I BURY THE LIVING (1958)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt and Marijohuana presents a Vortexx favorite -- I BURY THE LIVING (1958). A cemetery caretaker (Richard Boone) discovers that by switching white and black pins around on the map of the grounds, he can cause the death of future tenants -- and revive the current ones. Austrian-born Theodore Bikel plays Andy the caretaker with the thickest (and fakest) Scottish accent you're ever gonna hear. This creepy little thriller is said to be one of Stephen King's favorites, and it's one of ours as well. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Psycho Charger.

presents
ALIEN CONTAMINATION (1984)ALIEN CONTAMINATION (1984) aka Contamination

THE SCHLOCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with Nigel Honeybone presents Luigi Cozzi's ALIEN CONTAMINATION (1984) aka Contamination. If you can imagine Alien without a special effects budget or a talented director and with actors saying ludicrous things like "Help! Let me out! There's an egg!" then you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect from tonight's movie. It's about a one-eyed alien (grown from a seed that an astronaut brought back from Mars) who's incubating hundreds of green, pulsating, acid-spewing alien eggs at a coffee plantation in Colombia. Ian McCulloch (of Zombi and Zombie Holocaustfame) heads a cast of mostly unknown Italians. The cult band Goblin lends a helping hand by providing an out-of-this-world soundtrack. This was one of the 72 films on the UK's infamous "Video Nasty" list.

THE PROFESSOR GILLMAN SHOW
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
UFO: THE TRUE STORY OF FLYING SAUCERS (1956)

THE PROFESSOR GILLMAN SHOW presents the Vortexx premiere of UFO: THE TRUE STORY OF FLYING SAUCERS (1956). This semi-documentary, released to capitalize on the UFO craze that was sweeping the nation during the mid-50s, promises "actual color films of UFOs kept top secret until now." Tom Towers (the real-life aviation editor of The Los Angeles Examiner) stars as Al Chop, a reporter who begins to investigate several reports of UFOs and by the end of the movie is convinced that they are in fact real. The 10 minutes of poor-quality UFO footage at the end is mildly interesting, but before the movie finally gets to it you have to sit through 80 minutes of boring stock footage, interviews, and dramatic reenactments with some really annoying Dragnet-style narration. We're betting that long before the final credits, you'll be hoping to be abducted by a real spaceship just so you can get away from this turkey.

presents
HORROR (1963) aka The Blancheville Monster

DR. MORTOSE COMMANDS presents HORROR (1963) aka The Blancheville Monster. Although generally known by the latter title, this Italian-Spanish Gothic thriller, based loosely on Edgar Allan Poe's “The Fall of The House of Usher” and “The Premature Burial”, was originally released in Italy, Spain, and the U.K. under the somewhat bland title “The House of Usher”. Intended to capitalize upon the success of Roger Corman's popular Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, this visually striking but talky film stars Ombretta Colli as Emily de Blancheville, the beautiful young daughter of a crazed count, who fears that she will fall victim to the family curse. The movie ambles along about as slowly as The Giant Gila Monster, but it does have a few things going for it, including a creepy castle, some great exterior shots of a crumbling abbey and eerie forest locales, two very attractive female leads, and a willowy nightgown that shows Emily's perky breasts.

Peter (Mission Impossible) Graves stars as a scientist abducted by bug-eyed aliens from Astron Delta in this low-budget thriller directed by W. Lee (Willie) Wilder, Oscar-winner Billy Wilder's less talented older brother. Tonight, you will have a chance to see Willie's ineptitude in full display as the aliens, wearing ridiculous Phantom rip-off suits, plan to conquer the earth with giant stock-footage insects and reptiles. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will be spicing up the mix with plenty of movie trailers and other cool extras, including (we hope) another cranial cavity search.

GRAVE OF THE VAMPIRE (1974)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents GRAVE OF THE VAMPIRE (1974). Michael Pataki stars as Caleb Croft, one of the creepiest bloodsuckers you're ever going to see. No sparkly vampires tonight, folks. This guy really means business. William Smith plays Caleb's half-vampire, half-human son twenty-four years before Wesley Snipes did it in Blade. Writer David Chase would later go on to bigger and better things with The Sopranos.

REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIES (1943)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIES (1943). Since this movie was made in the midst of World War II, you might expect to see some Nazis in it. Trust us, you will not be disappointed. Horror movie veteran John Carradine stars as Dr. Max Heinrich von Altermann, a mad scientist (is there any other kind?) working at an old mansion in the bayous of Louisiana. Mad Max has plans to create a race of living dead warriors for the Third Reich. But his plans are complicated by his deceased wife (Veda Ann Borg) -- a zombie who, in most unzombie-like fashion, has developed a mind of her own. Mantan Moreland reprises his role of Jeff from King of the Zombies (1941). Gale Storm (of My Little Margie fame), future Batman Robert Lowery, and cowboy actor Bob Steele co-star.

The Vortexx premiere of
MONSTER OF PARTY BEACH (2014)

PSYCHO CINEMA with Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether presents The Vortexx premiere of Mark Justice's MONSTER OF PARTY BEACH (2014). If the title sounds vaguely familiar, it's because this Indie film from Cyclops Pictures was intended to be an homage to those bikini beach movies of the 1960s such as Horror of Party Beach and Beach Girls and the Monster. It’s summer time in Harmony Point, and the teens are home for vacation. It's all fun and games on the beach until a monster begins to kill off the bikini-clad teens one by one. Can Harmony Point’s mayor and police force stop the monster before there are no more bikini-filling teens left? If you like your Indies with extra cheese, then this is the movie for you!

VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt and Marijohuana presents VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968). Marilyn Monroe wannabe Mamie Van Doren stars as Moana, the leader of a tribe of Venusian women who wear clamshell bikinis, worship a pterodactyl god, and spend a lot of time lying around the beach. This movie uses the same footage from the Russian-made Planet of Storms that Roger Corman used three years earlier in Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet. Acclaimed director Peter Bogdanovich (calling himself Derek Thomas) directed the American scenes and also supplies the narration. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Zombina and the Skeletons, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, and more!

FIVE MINUTES TO LIVE (1961)

MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris the Buzzard presents FIVE MINUTES TO LIVE (1961). Johnny Cash makes his movie debut in this energetic crime thriller as Johnny Cabot, a hard-up, guitar-strumming hood who's hired by crook Fred Dorella (Vic Tayback from TV's Alice) to pose as a door-to-door guitar instructor, kidnap the wife of the local bank president (Donald Woods from 13 Ghosts), and hold her for ransom. Seven-year-old Ron Howard plays the couple's son Bobby. Despite the low production values, Cash manages a strong menacing presence, and the script is surprisingly smart. Cash sings "I've Come to Kill" and the title song "Five Minutes to Live."

REMO D'S MANOR OF MAYHEM with Remo, Dr. Montag, and Kato the Black Hornet presents The Vortexx premiere of Wes Craven's CHILLER (1985). If you thought that none of Wes Craven's movies were in the public domain, you've got another think coming because Remo has found the only one that is! It's a Made-for-TV movie about a cryogenically frozen man (Michael Beck) who returns from the deep freeze after a sleep of ten years. Only problem is, he is without a soul and begins doing creepy things. Paul Sorvino, Jill Schoelen, and Beatrice Straight co-star. Meanwhile back at the Manor, Dr. Montag has his own cryogenic chamber -- and his own test subject.

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-host Juli Majernik presents a Vortexx favorite -- Roger Corman's LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS (1960) starring Jonathan Haze as nebbish Seymour Krelborn, Jackie Joseph as his dim-witted girlfriend Audrey, Mel Welles as flower shop owner Gravis Mushnick, Dick Miller as plant-eating man Burson Fouch, and a very young Jack Nicholson as Wilbur Force -- a guy who just loves going to the dentist. In keeping with the horticultural theme of tonight's movie, the host segments were shot at Suncrest Gardens -- a retail garden center in Peninsula, Ohio, where Dave tries his best to cope with his pollen allergies.

ALTERNATIVE REALITIES with Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo returns to The Vortexx with a brand-new episode! Tonight Zoid & Sluggo will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of Bert I. Gordon's ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE (1958). Mr. B.I.G. goes small in this tale of a lonely dollmaker (veteran character actor John Hoyt) who lures unsuspecting folks into the back room of his shop and shrinks them for his amusement. It's all champagne parties and rock 'n' roll dancing on the table until one of his recently shrunk victims (veteran B-movie hero John Agar) decides to organize an escape. Bert's nine-year-old daughter Susan has a small role (get it? "small" role) as tiny girl with an even tinier cat.

George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents George Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). This is a movie that needs no introduction, but we're going to give you one anyway. It's about six bickering humans and a sick little girl trapped in a farmhouse with an army of zombies outside. Ben wants to be boss of the upstairs. Cooper wants to be boss of the cellar. Sparks fly and assorted body parts get devoured before it all comes to a flesh-ripping gut-munching climax. We know you've seen this movie more than a few times before, but tonight Arachna will be breathing new life into this venerable old chestnut with frequent host inserts and biting humor.

The Vortexx premiere of
DARK GARDEN (2004)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of DARK GARDEN (2004), a cool indie film by Patrick Bond. It's a psychological thriller about a downtrodden man named Warren (Kyle Van Pool), who finds himself having to choose between good and evil when he moves into a new house and befriends Harry (J.W. McCrary), who soon recruits Warren to assist him in his wicked ways.

FORMERLY CRAPPICS with Freezer Mortis presents The Vortexx premiere of CRIMES AT THE DARK HOUSE (1940). Veteran B-movie villain Tod Slaughter stars as a maniac who murders the wealthy Sir Percival Glyde in the gold fields of Australia, assumes his identity in order to inherit his estate in England, and then mercilessly kills everyone who might get in the way of his nefarious plan. It's loosely (ever so loosely) based on novel The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. Freezer will be spicing up the mix with another episode of 13 Demon Street and a special guest appearance by The Angry Scandanavian Chef Assistant.

FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS (1960)

Strap yourself in, space cadets, and take a journey with us to the amazing year 1985 as BORDELLO OF HORROR presents FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS (1960). Eight astronauts are sent to Venus to discover the origin of a metal artifact unearthed by some archaeologists. On the way over, they find out that the artifact contains a message outlining a sinister plan to destroy the Earth. Turns out that those wacky Venusians destroyed themselves before they could destroy Earth. But their radiation-bombardment machine is still active, and after one of the astronauts accidentally triggers it, a frantic effort to disarm it ensues. In addition to the movie, Freakshow will be entertaining us with special musical guests The Blacker Brothers Band and more!

presents
The Vortexx premiere of
MAGIC OF STELL (1988)

REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM presents The Vortexx premiere of MAGIC OF STELL (1988) aka Magic of Spell. Tonight's movie is a Taiwanese kung fu-fantasy -- full of eye-popping magical effects and feats of strength and sorcery -- that must be seen in order to be believed. Loosely based on the Japanese folk tale Momotaro, The Peach Boy, it stars Chinese actress Hsiao-Lao Lin as The Peach Boy -- born, so the story goes, from a large magic peach found in a river. The lad lives peachfully in the countryside with his old grandmother (played in gray wig and makeup, by one-time Shaw Bros. martial-arts star Cheng Pei Pei) until one day a band of demons raids the nearby village, abducts all the children, and attacks Peachy's home. The Peachmeister survives the attack and, accompanied by Dog Girl, Chicken Girl, Monkey Boy, and a walking talking ginseng plant, he sets out for the demons' castle to exact revenge on the ancient sorcerer who ordered the raid. The dialog is in Mandarin Chinese with ridiculous English subtitles. The English title of the subtitled release is supposed to be Magic of Spell. However, it’s mis-SPELLed Magic of Stell in the on-screen title, so that’s what Remo calls it.

We're celebrating Halloween early tonight as CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO presents the second part of a two-part Halloween Special from 2009. Mr. Lobo will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of Eric Miller's MARK OF THE DAMNED (2006). Miller's homegrown Midnight Movie masterpiece was made as an homage to the classic Santo movies, such as Santo vs the Vampire Women (1962). It's set in a place called The Amplified World, and it's filled with vampires, ghouls, robots, rocket men, masked heroes, and over-the-top villains like The Vampire Queen. In addition to the movie, Mr. Lobo will be spicing up the mix with off-beat humor, vintage TV ads, drive-in movie trailers, retro craziness, and informative interviews on location in Richmond, Virginia, detailing the making of the movie.

Dave's special guest tonight is horror host legend Lil' John Rinaldi so tonight's episode, appropriately enough, was shot at Rinaldi Jewelry, in Solon, Ohio.

Tonight we're celebrating the launch with two great shows courtesy of our three hosts. First up THE HAUNTED THEATRE with Halloween Jack and and his co-hostess Halloween Jacqueline will be presenting the cult classic FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER (1958) starring Donald Murphy as the insane Dr. Oliver Frank (short for Frankenstein, of course), Sandra Knight as The Bucktooth Ugly Woman, and Harry Wilson as The Lipstick Monster. Then stick around for more insanity as MR. MANIACAL'S INSANITY presents THE SADIST (1963) starring Arch Hall, Jr. in what is undoubtedly the best – and scariest – movie role of his career.

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White as they host William Castle's HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959). Vincent Price gives a stellar performance as the suavely malevolent host of a "haunted house party" who offers his guests $10,000 if they can survive a night in the murderous mansion. Carol Ohmart co-stars as Vinnie's scheming wife, and Elisha Cook, Jr. plays the timid owner of the house.

The Vortexx premiere of
DARK ROAD (2009)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of DARK ROAD aka The Devil Comes Home to Missouri. On a foggy night in the small southern town of Whitewater, Missouri, a local sheriff is called to the roadside scene of a violent execution-style murder. When the victim is identified as a mob-connected thug with local ties, the sheriff must determine if the murder is a message -- either to him or for him. However, the gathering storm of violence heading his way will leave no time for second guessing. This Indie movie by Patrick Bond and Steve E. Turner was filmed entirely in and around Cape Girardeau, Missouri (Misty's home base) and features local talent including members of The Tone Def Allstars (Darren Burgfeld) and Drivin Rain (Skully Shemwell) in lead roles.

THE SCREAMING SKULL (1958)

Tonight we celebrate Labor Day (and the 469th birthday of The Crimson Executioner) by welcoming NIGHT CHILLS THEATRE with Vincent Grimmly to The Vortexx! Hailing from The City of Sin, the hilarious and talented Mr. Grimmly follows in the rich tradition of Las Vegas vampire horror hosts, keeping us entertained with his collection of nutty schlock flicks that he broadcasts from his studio at Castle Pappdeckel. Vincent is assisted by his sidekick and co-host -- a pet raven named Phydeaux (pronounced "Fido"), who unfortunately clams up on camera during his debut appearance. Tonight Vincent and Phydeaux will be presenting THE SCREAMING SKULL (1958). It's about a newlywed couple whose marital bliss is spoiled by the ghost of the husband's previous wife. The producers of this movie offered free burial services to anyone who died of fright while watching the film, so we're gonna make the same offer. Join us tonight . . . if you dare!

WEREWOLF VERSUS THE VAMPIRE WOMAN (1970) (1987)

Tonight Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Mary Johuana presents WEREWOLF VERSUS THE VAMPIRE WOMAN (1970) starring Paul Naschy as Waldemar Daninsky the Werewolf and Patty Shepard as Countess Wandessa the Vampire Woman. Just imagine what would happen if a group of twelve-year-olds decided to make their own version of the old Universal monster movies. If you can picture that, then you have a pretty good idea of what this movie is all about. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests John Masino Band - JMB, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, and more!

Vortexx-Demon Lover-20160907_Remo DWednesday (9/7) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
THE DEMON LOVER (1977)

Last week we watched Remo host Demon Lover Diary, a documentary about the making of Donald (Hell Comes to Frogtown) Jackson's first low-budget horror movie, The Demon Lover. Tonight, by popular demand, we're going to show you the movie itself. This little gem has everything that a B-movie fan could expect from a film of its kind -- bad acting, lousy writing, murky camera work, a little skin (not much), a little blood, characters named after comic-book artists and movie directors, and a surprisingly accurate look at what a lot of fringe-type folks were like during the late 1970s. It's got one big-name actor (Gunnar Hansen, best known as Leatherface in Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and one real comic-book artist (Val Mayerik, best known for Howard the Duck). The demon itself is not half bad, despite the low budget. With a larger budget, its creators Dennis and Robert Skotak would go on to bigger and better things with Aliens, Terminator 2, and Titanic.

Vortexx-Tavern Maudite-20160908_Skunky Cinema

SKUNKY CINEMA
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
LA TAVERNE MAUDITE (1936)

SKUNKY CINEMA with Mortimer Van Creep presents The Vortexx premiere of LA TAVERNE MAUDITE (1936) aka The Rogues' Tavern. Tonight's film is an English-language movie made in the good ole USA and released as The Rogues' Tavern. However, we're using the French poster and title so as not to create the erroneous impression that there's any connection between Morty's show and a certain group of miscreants known as The Rogue Elements. Tonight’s movie is kind of a cross between The Old Dark House and Ten Little Indians. A group of people arrive at an old hotel called the Red Rock Tavern, all having been invited by telegrams sent by a mysterious stranger. One by one, they turn up dead with crushed throats and bite marks. A wolf-dog tethered outside the tavern is the initial suspect. But a couple of small-time store detectives (Wallace Ford and Barbara Pepper), who have come to the hotel to meet a justice of the peace and get married, begin to suspect that a human is involved. As for the Rogue Elements, Sluggo has beefed up security to avoid a repetition of that unpleasant incident of last March, and with Destroyah hosting the chat, we're certain that Morty's show will run tonight without a hitch.

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
TRAPPED BY TELEVISION (1936)

THE WEIRDNESS REALLY BAD MOVIE with Dave Binkley and co-host Shannon Steele presents The Vortexx premiere of TRAPPED BY TELEVISION (1936). Released four months before television first became commercially available, tonight's movie is a sci-fi/comedy/mystery about a brilliant but penniless inventor (Lyle Talbot) who's working on his latest creation, a new form of television monitor and camera. His monetary problems are compounded by an aggressive bill collector looking for payments and competition from a rival scientist. When organized crime figures are added to the mix, the desperation level rises for our intrepid inventor. Tonight's show was hosted from the TV Dinner Club Museum in Akron, Ohio, where Shannon does her best to keep Dave out of trouble.

LIVE FROM HORRORHOUND WEEKEND!

That's right, folks! The staff of The Vortexx are going to take a break from their partying to present a special live feed from HHW in Indianapolis. Sluggo and CJ the Werewolf will be hosting the festivities and there will be guest appearances by anyone we can round up, including we hope Dr. Lady and the Sasquatches. Instead of the usual gawd-awful movie, we will be showing cartoons and other stuff between the skits. That way, we won't have to worry about whether the segments of the movie are running in the correct order or whether we remembered to air the end of it. If you can't be in Indianapolis this weekend, this is the next best thing!

Ed Wood's BRIDE OF THE MONSTER (1955)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black-and-White -- Ed Wood's BRIDE OF THE MONSTER (1955). In his last starring role, an emaciated Bela Lugosi plays an aging mad scientist with a plan to create a race of supermen with the help of Tor Johnson. Bela shows off his acting chops in his memorable "Home, I Have No Home" soliloquy, and the final scene where he wrestles with a rubber octopus must be seen in order to be believed.

Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White -- PHANTOM FROM 10,000 LEAGUES (1955). Government agent Kent Taylor goes up against spies, an underwater death ray, and a ludicrous monster who looks like The Creature From The Black Lagoon's hillbilly cousin. There's also a mad scientist (Michael Whalen) with a beautiful daughter (Cathy Downs), who takes showers and falls in love with the government agent.

Roger Corman’s THE TERROR (1963)

Lord Blood-Rah presents Roger Corman’s THE TERROR (1963) starring Boris Karloff, a very young Jack Nicholson, Sandra Knight, and Corman regulars Dick Miller and Jonathan Haze. Roger had just finished filming The Raven and Karloff had three days left on his contract, so he shot this film using the same sets! The plot involves a young officer in Napoleon's army who pursues a mysterious woman to the castle of an elderly Baron. Nicholson, Francis Ford Coppola, and Jack (Spider Baby) Hill were among the second-unit directors. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will be spicing up the mix with plenty of movie trailers, a Cranial Cavity Search, and other extras.

THE STREET FIGHTER (1974) (1987)

Tonight Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Mary Johuana will be hosting The Vortexx premiere of the fourth and final installment in their month-long series of martial arts films -- THE STREET FIGHTER (1974). Sonny Chiba chews up the scenery as Terry Tsurugi, a martial arts master who uses his abundant talents as a mercenary gun-for-hire. After he is hired by the Japanese mob to kidnap the daughter of a deceased billionaire, he decides to switch sides and protect her instead. Much gore and mayhem ensue. If you want to see butt-whuppin' administered with balletic grace and artistry, then rent yourself a Bruce Lee film. If you want to see a guy mercilessly whip truckloads of butt, then this is the movie for you! In addition to the butt-whuppins, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guest Art Paul Schlosser, and more!

Vortexx-Demon Lover Diary-20160831_Remo DWednesday (8/31) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
DEMON LOVER DIARY (1980)

Tonight's film is not a horror movie but rather a movie about the making of a low-budget horror movie called The Demon Lover (1977). Unlike your typical "making of" movie, which tends to be more informative than entertaining, this one not only stands head-and-shoulders above the actual movie (which, frankly, stank) but also is a hoot to watch. It's about a couple of factory workers named Don Jackson and Jerry Younkins, who grew up on comic books and B-movies and have always wanted to produce their own horror movie. After Jerry gets some insurance money from an industrial accident (which he may or may not have orchestrated), he and Don decide to fulfill their lifelong ambition. Unfortunately both guys have more enthusiasm than talent, and once the filming starts everything that possibly could go wrong does go wrong. The story is told from the point of view of Joel DeMott, a professional filmmaker whose boyfriend Jeff Kreins was hired by Don and Jerry as the cameraman for their magnum opus. Rocker Ted Nugent makes a cameo appearance when the crew show up at his home to borrow some of his guns and ammo for a scene.

RIZZLE MaNIZZLE DOUBLE FEATURE

Join us tonight for a RIZZLE MaNIZZLE DOUBLE FEATURE! First up Rizzle the Clown proudly presents The Vortexx debut of those three little rapscallions HERMAN SHERMAN AND TINA, who will be entertaining us with a mix of cartoons (1933's Betty Boop's “Crazy Inventions”), movie trailers (including Night of the Living Dead and Plan 9), public service films (Lunchroom Manners), and song parodies (concluding with a rousing rendition of "Happy Together"). Then stick around as RIZZLE MaNIZZLE's GINGERBREAD HOUSE OF LUNACY presents the one, the only, the incomparable MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE (1966). That's riiiiiiight!! All your friends will be back tonight! Torgo, The Master & his Wives, Michael & Margaret, little Debbie, the two teens in the car, the two girls in the convertible, and, of course, Peppy the Poodle. Believe it or not Rizzle has actually found a way to make this stinker watchable, mainly by cutting it down to less than 45 minutes and then riffing it to pieces a la MST3K!

Friday (9/2) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
SICKO-PSYCHOTIC
presents
THE BLANCHEVILLE MONSTER (1963)

Join us tonight as SICKO-PSYCHOTIC returns to The Vortexx for his second appearance! Broadcasting from the Sick-Shack in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sicko and his co-hosts, Silky Harlot the spider and Cameo the camera obscura, were a big hit with the viewers when their first show debuted two weeks ago, and tonight is your chance to see them again! Tonight Sicko & friends will be hosting THE BLANCHEVILLE MONSTER (1963). Loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's “The Fall of the House of Usher” and “The Premature Burial”, this visually striking but talky Italian-Spanish Gothic thriller stars Ombretta Colli as Emily de Blancheville, the beautiful young daughter of a crazed count, who fears that she will fall victim to the family curse. The film moves about as slowly as The Giant Gila Monster, but it has a few things going for it, including two attractive female leads and a willowy nightgown that shows Emily's perky breasts. We're confident that Sicko will relieve the tedium with more of the creative, imaginative, and hilarious host breaks that made his first show so much fun to watch.

PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN
presents
FISTS OF STEEL (1986)

PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN with Cnl. Graves and Smiley Bones presents FISTS OF STEEL (1986). Also known as Atomic Cyborg, Hands of Steel, and Vendetta from the Future, this Italian-made knockoff of The Terminator and Blade Runner has more alternate titles than an Al Adamson movie. Daniel Greene, whose robotic acting style perfectly fits his character, stars as Paco Queruak, a cyborg created by a sinister industrialist (John Saxon) to assassinate a blind scientist (Donald O'Brian) who stands in the way of his evil schemes. Despite the low budget and questionable acting, the non-stop action and rousing musical score (by Claudio Simonetti) make this a highly entertaining cheeseball of a movie from start to finish.

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE DOUBLE FEATURE!

The Vortexx premiere of
DARK ROAD (2009)

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE presents The Vortexx premiere of DARK ROAD aka The Devil Comes Home to Missouri. On a foggy night in the small southern town of Whitewater, Missouri, a local sheriff is called to the roadside scene of a violent execution-style murder. When the victim is identified as a mob-connected thug with local ties, the sheriff must determine if the murder is a message -- either to him or for him. However, the gathering storm of violence heading his way will leave no time for second guessing. This indie movie by Patrick Bond and Steve E. Turner was filmed entirely in and around Cape Girardeau, Missouri (Misty's home base) and features local talent including members of The Tone Def Allstars (Darren Burgfeld) and Drivin Rain (Skully Shemwell) in lead roles.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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!

MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE
presents
THEATRE OF BLOOD (1973)

Join us tonight as MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE returns to The Vortexx for its second appearance! Tonight Misty will be presenting Vincent Price in his favorite movie role as she hosts the deliciously campy horror-comedy THEATRE OF BLOOD (1973). Price stars as Shakespearian actor Edward Lionheart, who murders the critics who snubbed him by using famous death scenes from Shakespeare plays (Macbeth, Richard III, etc.) as his models. Diana (The Avengers) Rigg plays his daughter and accomplice. The stellar supporting cast includes Robert Morley & a couple of very unfortunate poodles, Jack Hawkins, Diana Dors, Dennis Price, Milo O'Shea, Robert Coote, and Coral Browne -- an Australian actress whom Price met on the set and married a year later.
Vortexx-The Spider-20160808_Doc Mortose

DR. MORTOSE COMMANDS
presents
The Vortexx premiere of
Bert I. Gordon's EARTH VS. THE SPIDER
(aka The Spider) (1958)

A giant spider is killed by DDT and then hauled for storage to a nearby high school only to be revived by a loud dose of rock music from a teenage garage band. Its hatred of rock 'n' roll leads The Spider to rampage through the town and turn its citizens into dried-up corpses. Folks, we can't make this stuff up! Watch carefully for plugs for two of Bert's earlier movies -- The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) and Attack of the Puppet People (1958).

Vortexx-Ninja Death II-20160809_Bordello

Tuesday (8/9) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BORDELLO OF HORROR'S
NINJULY IN AUGUST

presents
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 3coming our way next week. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests Winning Ugly, and more!

Vortexx-Revenge of Dr. X-20160810_Alt RealitiesWednesday (8/10) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
ALTERNATIVE REALITIES
presents
BODY OF THE PREY (1970)

Join us tonight for an encore presentation of ALTERNATIVE REALITIES as Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo host BODY OF THE PREY (1970). Also known as Venus Flytrap, BODY OF THE PREY, The Revenge of Dr. X, and The Devil Garden, this movie has more alternate titles than an Al Adamson flick. It's about a mad scientist (is there any other kind?) who develops a way to turn carnivorous plants into man-eating creatures. Zoid and Sluggo call tonight's show "The Peanut Butter Episode." Join us tonight and find out why!

Vortexx-Mummy TV First Anniversary-20160811_Mummy TV

Thursday (8/4) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MUMMY TV
presents
SPOOKS RUN WILD (1941)

Join us tonight as we celebrate the MUMMY TV FIRST ANNIVERSARY SHOW! Our ancient hosts Mr. and Mrs. Mummy will be taking you on a strange journey back to their beginnings through their first year in the world of Horror Hosting with their trademark witty humor and bad puns -- tailored right to the funny bones of their friends in the Vortexx. The Mummys will once again be hosting the first movie they hosted in their premiere episode in August 2015 – SPOOKS RUN WILD (1941) starring Bela Lugosi and the East Side Kids. The show will also include a smattering of our hosts’ personal favorite bits, a special collection of music medleys, special facts about the show, classic movie monster trailers, some of the first show’s original bits (with re-edited audio) and commercial parodies. And there will be a "MUST SEE" for all at the conclusion of the show!

Vortexx-Night Stalker-201608012_Remo D

Friday (8/12) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
The Vortexx premiere of

NIGHT STALKER (1986)

REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM presents The Vortexx premiere of NIGHT STALKER (1986). For those who didn't know that the legendary TV series starring Darrin McGavin as Kolchak was in the public domain, we have news for you. . . it isn't. Tonight's movie doesn't have McGavin in it, but it does have horror icon Robert Z'Dar playing a seemingly indestructible killer named Chuck Sommers, who murders prostitutes, steals their souls, and paints Chinese characters on their bodies. Veteran character actor Charles Napier, who made a career playing hard-ass military types and menacing bad guys, co-stars as Sergeant Striker, an alcoholic L.A. cop who's on the case. Z'Dar's character is loosely based on real-life serial killer Richard Ramirez (also named the Night Stalker), and it was this role that got him the lead role in the cult favorite Maniac Cop.

Vortexx-Nightmare in Blood-201608013_Lord Blood-Rah

Saturday (8/13) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE
presents
The Vortexx premiere of

John Stanley's NIGHTMARE IN BLOOD (1978)

One year before he replaced Bob Wilkins as the host of San Francisco's "Creature Features," Stanley directed, co-wrote, and co-produced this horror-comedy about the guest of honor at a horror convention who turns out to be a real vampire. Stanley and Wilkins make brief appearances as a comic book store customer and a convention attendee, Bela Lugosi shows up in archive footage, and "name" actors Kerwin Mathews and Kathleen Quinlan have cameo roles. As always you can expect Lord Blood-Rah to spice up the mix with movie trailers, a cranial cavity search, and other extras.

Vortexx-Cat Women of the Moon-20160814_Beware Theater

Sunday (8/14) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BEWARE THEATER
presents
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 didn't enough arachnid action on Monday, 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."

NIGHTMARE CASTLE (1965)

Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly go to a European spa from hell tonight as BEWARE THEATER presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White -- NIGHTMARE CASTLE (1965). Scream queen Barbara Steele stars as a faithless wife whose husband (Paul Muller from Lady Frankenstein) decides that revenge is a dish best served not only cold -- but heartless. Unfortunately for hubby, his plans for his deceased wife's inheritance are complicated when her wacko sister (Steele in a blonde wig) shows up. As the poster says, see it with someone who’s shockproof. This one is definitely not for the squeamish.

DOUBLE FEATURE

Join us tonight for THE BONE JANGLER'S DAYTIME DUNGEON DOUBLE FEATURE! This great show, hosted by The Bone Jangler and Master Gregory, has been around since 2005. It's aimed at an all-ages audience, and each episode is chock full of classic cartoons, nostalgic music videos, vintage toy commercials, and other family-friendly entertainment. Abbott & Costello and Bugs Bunny will be among the highlights in tonight's episodes, one of which features a very young Master Gregory.

BORDELLO OF HORROR'S
NINJULY IN AUGUST

presents
NINJA DEATH 1 (1987)

Tonight Freakshow & the Bordello gang will be presenting the first in a series of crappy but fun Taiwanese martial arts films that ran last month as NinJuly on cable channel 57 in Madison, Wisconsin. We kick off the series with NINJA DEATH 1 (1987) aka Venom of the Ninja -- a near-perfect onslaught of ridiculous fight scenes, crazy costumes, topless babes, hilarious dubbing, and a surprisingly intriguing story. Martial arts champion-turned-actor Alexander Rei Lo stars as Tiger, the owner of a brothel who moonlights as a kung fu artist under the watchful eye of a guy named (what else?) "Master." It's all fun and games until some ninjas inexplicably show up and jeopardize Tiger's

NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST (1958)

In this poor man's Quatermass Xperiment, an astronaut returns to Earth dead. His corpse is revived by an ugly crusty alien who likes to decapitate people. The alien invests his body with what appear to be sea monkeys. Look closely, and you will see in one of the shots that the alien is wearing shoes. One of three movies produced by Gene Corman, Roger's less-talented brother.

PENNY DREADFUL'S SHILLING SHOCKERS
presents
THE SHE-BEAST (1965)

We welcome back PENNY DREADFUL'S SHILLING SHOCKERS with the very first episode we ever aired in The Vortexx! Entitled Reverse the Curse, it has Penny hosting Michael Reeves's THE SHE-BEAST (1965) as she works to reverse a strange curse she accidentally placed upon herself many decades ago. Through a series of flashbacks spanning nearly 700 years, Penny reveals short glimpses of her mysterious past and leaves the viewers with a special little "treat" (or is that a trick?) of her own. Meanwhile, in tonight's movie, scream queen Barbara Steele stars as a tourist in Transylvania possessed by the spirit of an ugly, vengeful witch -- quite the antithesis of tonight's charming host! Mel (Gravis Mushnick) Welles co-stars as a horny innkeeper aptly named Groper.

WHITE ZOMBIE (1932)

Friday (8/5). 9:00 P.M. (ET). LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE presents starring Bela Lugosi. It's the first zombie movie ever -- and still arguably one of the best! Fresh from his success in Dracula, Lugosi plays the evil Murder Legendre, who can control people with a little white powder, a hand clench, and a nasty glare. In addition to great sets (borrowed from Universal) and lots of living dead (courtesy of master makeup man Jack Pierce), there's some pretty weird music, some of it by Xavier Cugat. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will adding spice to the mix with plenty of movie trailers, a Cranial Cavity Search, and other extras.

THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN (1956)

PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN SUMMER ROUNDUP with Cnl. Graves and Smiley Bones concludes tonight with the third of three action-packed episodes! Tonight our hosts Tombstone Graves and the Bone Ranger are presenting THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN (1956). It's cowboys versus dinosaurs as Guy Madison (best known as TV's Wild Bill Hickok) goes up against a T-Rex in this offbeat mix of the western and horror genres. Willis O'Brien, the creator of King Kong, came up with the idea, but unfortunately the producers were too cheap to hire him to do the stop-motion animation. Ray Harryhausen would pull off the same story much better a decade later in The Valley of Gwangi. But, hey, when you're limited to public domain fare, this is about as good as it gets in the cowboy-dinosaur genre.

THE GIANTS OF THESSALY (1960)

FORMERLY CRAPPICS with Freezer Mortis returns to its roots in the Italian sword-and-sandal genre with the Vortexx premiere of THE GIANTS OF THESSALY (1960). Swiss-born muscleman Roland Carey stars in what Freezer calls "The Poor Man's Jason and the Argonauts". Unlike most of the muscle-bound heroes of the 1960s, Carey was actually a professional actor, attending the Paris Conservatory, playing Shakespeare's Fortinbras on the stage, and winning small parts in French and American movies and TV series (Bonanza, Laramie, The Twilight Zone, Thriller) before taking on the starring role of King Jason, who leads his Argonauts on a search for the fabled Golden Fleece while his enemies plot against him at home. The presence of Ricardo (Horrible Dr. Hitchcock) Freda, who had a directing career lasting 40 years, also lifts this film a notch above the usual sword-and-sandal fare.

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Mary Johuana presents ASSIGNMENT TERROR (1970) aka Dracula vs. Frankenstein. For monster lovers, this movie has a bit of everything -- The Frankenstein Monster, Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and even some space aliens! Michael (The Day The Earth Stood Still) Rennie and Karin (You Only Live Twice) Dor star as dead scientists resurrected by aliens, who plan to conquer the earth by re animating our four classic monsters. Paul Naschy (who also wrote the story) makes his third appearance as Wolf Man Waldemar Daninsky, while Patty Shepard provides some eye candy amidst the horrible horrors. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with special musical guests The Anderson Brothers, an interview with Gwar Kid Shaun Cresaloos, and more!

ALTERNATIVE REALITIES
presents
BATTLE OF THE WORLDS (1960)

ALTERNATIVE REALITIES with Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo presents BATTLE OF THE WORLDS (1960). A rogue planet known as "The Outsider" is on a collision course with the Earth. An elderly professor (Claude Rains of The Invisible Man fame) and his crew travel to the planet and make a startling discovery. Will the crew manage to leave the planet before nuclear warheads from Earth strike? The real fun of this episode is not the movie itself (which is just so-so) but watching Sluggo pop up on the screen and make snarky comments about the movie.

DEMENTED FEATURES with its insatiably insane host Danvers and his side-kicks Ivy Garland and Dr. Coate returns to the Vortexx to present ALICE SWEET ALICE (1976) aka Holy Terror and Communion.

Veteran singer and actress Lillian Roth (whose life was the subject of an Oscar-winning film I'll Cry Tomorrow) appears as a pathologist.

BULGE OF STEEL CHAT NIGHT!

THE PENINSULA OF HORROR -- the showcase for Florida's finest horror hosts -- presents BULGE OF STEEL CHAT NIGHT! First up at 8 (ET) is the three-year- in-the-making first season finale of HOUSE OF MASTER VYLE PRESENTS! Master Vyle and special GHOST Stars Queman and Professor Gillman will be presenting EVIL BRAIN FROM OUTER SPACE (1965). Watch in awe and amazement as paunchy superhero Starman dons his ballet costume to rescue the Earth from the menace of Balazar, the Evil Brain, while battling armies of monsters the Brain sends against him. Then stick around at 10 (ET) for another episode of HOUSE OF MASTER VYLE PRESENTS. Starman must once again rescue the Earth, this time from an invasion by an evil alien race called the Spherions in ATTACK FROM SPACE (1964). A Special PreShow for the Early Boids starting at 5:20 P.M. features yet another Starman movie INVADERS FROM SPACE (1965), on THE GOLDEN HORDE with Gorenard the Beerbarian. There will be live broadcasts by Professor Gillman from Lagoon House throughout the night.

PLEASE NOTE: Tonight's feature will be aired on The Peninsula of Horror's Livestream channel -- livestream.com/tpoh . Viewers who show up on The Vortexx channel Saturday night will be re-directed there, so you can save yourself a couple of steps by going directly to The Peninsula of Horror.

NIGHTMARE CASTLE (1965)

Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly go to a European spa from hell tonight as BEWARE THEATER presents another gem from the Golden Age of Black & White -- NIGHTMARE CASTLE (1965). Scream queen Barbara Steele stars as a faithless wife whose husband (Paul Muller from Lady Frankenstein) decides that revenge is a dish best served not only cold -- but heartless. Unfortunately for hubby, his plans for his deceased wife's inheritance are complicated when her wacko sister (Steele in a blonde wig) shows up. As the poster says, see it with someone who’s shockproof. This one is definitely not for the squeamish.

THE BONE JANGLER

SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY (1972)

We conclude our Worst of the Worst Week with the rock-bottom absolute "worst" of the bad movies selected by our viewers. Join us tonight as THE BONE JANGLER and co-hosts Nocturna and HARMony present SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY (1972). This live-action feature begins with Santa (with a large sweat stain on his butt) and his sleigh stuck in the sand on a Florida beach, just days before Christmas Eve. After trying unsuccessfully to extricate the sleigh, kids from a nearby subdivision are afraid they won't get any gifts on Christmas. To boost their spirits, Santa decides to tells them a story. The setting then dissolves into a movie-within-the-movie -- Thumbelina (1970) starring Shay Gardner as a bouncy, bra-less, mini-skirted hippie chick who wanders through a tacky Florida amusement park imagining she is Thumbelina. When we aired this stinker in December 2014, we had to lock the chatroom doors to prevent our viewers from fleeing in droves. And poor Destroyah, who hosted the chat, still hasn't recovered from the experience despite more than eighteen months of intensive therapy. Watch it if you dare. You've been warned!

Vortexx-Boggy Creek-20160718_Lord Blood-Rah

Monday (7/18) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
LORD BLOOD-RAH'S NERVE WRACKIN' THEATRE
presents
THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK (1973)

Tonight's movie is a docudrama about a Sasquatch-type creature that terrorized the small town of Fouke, Arkansas for several years. Many of the folks who claim to have experienced these events actually play themselves in the movie. The film's visual style has been cited as the inspiration for the look and pacing of The Blair Witch Project. This one is definitely a "must see" for all Bigfoot fans, although Bigfoot himself (played by a guy in a gorilla suit) is somewhat of a disappointment. As always, Lord Blood-Rah will be spicing up the mix with some cool trailers, a cranial cavity search, and other extras.

Vortexx-Scream Bloody Murder-20160719_Bordello

Tuesday (7/19) @ 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 Mary Johuana 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!

 

Vortexx-Drac vs Frank-20160720_Dr.LadyWednesday (7/20) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
THE LATE DR. LADY SHOW
presents
Al Adamson's DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN (1971)

THE LATE DR. LADY SHOW with Dr. Lady and the Usual Suspects presents Al Adamson's DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN (1971). This is the second of three films bearing that title released between 1970 and 1972 and arguably the best -- not because it's a good movie (which it isn't), but because it's consistently entertaining. Stockbroker-turned-actor Roger Engel (aka Zandor Vorkov) and accountant-turned-actor John Bloom play the title monsters, but the real stars are horror icons J. Carrol Naish and Lon Chaney, Jr. making their final screen appearances as a wheelchair-bound Dr. Frankenstein and his dim-witted assistant Groton. Angelo Rossito plays Grazbo the Evil Dwarf, the doctor's other henchman. Anthony Eisley plays an aging hippy who helps busty blonde Regina Carrol (Adamson's real-life wife) search for her sister (decapitated by Chaney at the beginning of the film). Forrest J Ackerman makes a cameo appearance as one of The Frankenstein Monster's victims.

Vortexx-Revenge Zombies-20160721_MonsterMovieNight

Thursday (7/21) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT
presents
REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIES (1943)

MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT with Bobby Gammonster and Boris the Buzzard presents The Vortexx premiere of REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIES (1943). Since this movie was made in the midst of World War II, you might expect that there will be Nazis in it. And you won't be disappointed! Horror movie veteran John Carradine stars as Dr. Max Heinrich von Altermann, a mad scientist (is there any other kind?) working at an old mansion in the bayous of Louisiana. Mad Max has plans to create a race of living dead warriors for the Third Reich. But his plans are complicated by his deceased wife (Veda Ann Borg) -- a zombie who, in most unzombie-like fashion, has developed a mind of her own. Mantan Moreland reprises his role of Jeff from King of the Zombies (1941). Gale Storm (of My Little Margie fame), future Batman Robert Lowery, and cowboy actor Bob Steele co-star.

Vortexx-Bucket of Blood-20160722_Beware Theater

Friday (7/22) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
BEWARE THEATER
presents
BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly present another monochromatic marvel from the Golden Age of Black & White -- Roger Corman's BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959). In his only starring role, veteran character actor Dick Miller plays Walter Paisley, a coffeehouse busboy who gains recognition and respect as an artistic genius after he accidentally kills his cat and covers it with plaster. And now everyone's dying (literally!) to see his next creation. Corman regulars Bruno (Fat Dave) VeSota, Antony Carbone, and Barboura Morris add great support in this delightfully campy movie, while Julian Burton hams it up as the ultimate beat poet Maxwell H. Brock. Look for Bert Convey as the undercover narc who finds himself on the wrong end of Walter's frying pan.

Vortexx-Bride and Beast-20160723_Skunky

Saturday (7/23) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
SKUNKY CINEMA
presents The Vortexx premiere of
Ed Wood's THE BRIDE AND THE BEAST (1958)

SKUNKY CINEMA with Mortimer Van Creep presents The Vortexx premiere of Ed Wood's THE THE BRIDE AND THE BEAST (1958). This may be a Vortexx premiere, but since Ed wrote the screenplay for this stinker, you already have a pretty good idea of what you're in for. It's one of the strangest love triangles ever depicted on film involving a man, a woman, and a gorilla named Spanky. Charlotte Austin and Lance Fuller, both of whom are (inexplicably for a Wood film) decent actors, play newlywed couple Laura and Dan Fuller, whose marital bliss is spoiled when Laura develops an attraction for the gorilla that big game hunter Dan keeps caged in his basement. It turns out that Laura is harboring a dark secret which, in typical Wood fashion, is revealed in the first 15 minutes of the movie. The soundtrack is by Les Baxter, who scored many a film for American International Pictures during the 1960s and 1970s. And be sure to keep an eye out for the Angora sweater. Trust us, it's there!

Vortexx-Dark Garden-20160724_Misty Brew

Sunday (7/24) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE
presents The Vortexx premiere of
DARK GARDEN (2004)

Join us tonight as we welcome MISTY BREW'S CREATURE FEATURE to The Vortexx! A true legend among horror hosts and a 2015 inductee into the Horror Host Hall of Fame, Misty has been entertaining viewers on various Fox TV affiliates and more recently on her own YouTube channel since 1983. And now you can also watch her in The Vortexx! Tonight Misty will be hosting the Vortexx premiere of DARK GARDEN (2004), a cool indie film by Patrick Bond. It's a psychological thriller about a downtrodden man named Warren (Kyle Van Pool), who finds himself having to choose between good and evil when he moves into a new house and befriends Harry (J.W. McCrary), who soon recruits Warren to assist him in his wicked ways. In addition to the movie, Misty will be entertaining us with a special interview with Mr. McCrary and previews of Misty's Coming Attractions. Don't miss it!

The Vortexx Hosts_02

Welcome to THE VORTEXX where it's ALL HOSTS ALL THE TIME!

Welcome to WORST OF THE WORST WEEK in The Vortexx! Truth be told, we air a lot of crappy movies all year round in The Vortexx, but some are definitely worse than others. A few weeks ago we polled our viewers and came up with a list of the 7 ABSOLUTE WORST MOVIES we have ever inflicted on our viewing audience. This week we're airing them in roughly reverse order starting on Monday with the "least”worst and culminating next Saturday and Sunday with the absolute "worst” of the worst. Our hosts are Gorenard the Beerbarian, Sluggo and Sluggles, Freakshow & the Bordello gang, Nigel Honeybone, Remo D., Scarlett Kaiju and CJ the Werewolf, Mr. Lobo, and The Bone Jangler, Nocturna & HARMony. "Enjoy" the shows and thanks for hanging out!

THE GOLDEN HORDE
presents
LADY FRANKENSTEIN (1971)

THE GOLDEN HORDE with that manliest of manly-men hosts Gorenard the Beerbarian presents LADY FRANKENSTEIN (1971). Before we get to the really bad stuff on Monday, we're going to start off the week by watching a fairly decent movie. 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.

SLUGGO'S STRANGE TAILS
presents
Abel Ferrara's DRILLER KILLER (1979)

SLUGGO'S STRANGE TAILS with Sluggo and Sluggles kicks off our Worst of the Worst Week with Abel Ferrara's DRILLER KILLER (1979). Ferrara (billed as Jimmy Laine) plays a young artist who slowly goes nutzoid after a loud punk band moves into a nearby apartment and an art dealer laughs at his new creation, eventually resorting to power tools to take out his frustrations. Believe it or not, this movie actually has its share of fans, who admire its evocative depiction of 1970s New York City street life. And even in this less-than-stellar early effort Ferrara, who would go on to bigger and better things with The Addiction, Body Snatchers, Bad Lieutenant, and King of New York, shows the makings of a decent director. In between segments of the movie, Sluggo will be providing some sweet relief with Slime Time News and a musical guest.

Vortexx-Ghosts of Hanley House-20160712_Bordello

BORDELLO OF HORROR

GHOSTS OF HANLEY HOUSE (1968)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, Ali Katt, and Mary Johuana presents the movie everyone loves to hate -- GHOSTS OF HANLEY HOUSE (1968). For anyone not familiar with tonight's offering, it's is a really awful movie about a group of people who accept a bet to stay inside a house that was the scene of multiple murders. Imagine House on Haunted Hill gone horribly wrong, and that's the movie we'll be watching tonight. Our viewers ranked this one as "third worst" but we're airing it out of order tonight as a new-to-The-Vortexx episode of Bordello. Freaky will attempt to make up for the film's lack of quality with footage from Wizard World Madison, including interviews with Barry Bostwick, Muppet Babies creator Guy Gilchrist, and Rabbit Ears TV; musical guests The Pistols at Dawn; and a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut.

MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE (1966)

THE SCHLOCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with Nigel Honeybone presents the one, the only, the incomparable MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE (1966), which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. That's right, folks! All your friends will be back tonight -- Torgo (John Reynolds), The Master (Tom Neyman), Michael (director Hal Warren) and Margaret (Diane Mahree), Little Debbie (The Master's real-life daughter Jackie Neyman), The Master’s wives, the two teens in the car, the two girls in the convertible, and Peppy the Poodle! We guarantee that by the time this movie is over, you will be reduced to a tube of meat ready to be extruded through your brainstem. [Manos poster by Mariods courtesy of Deviant Art.]

Vortexx-Aladdin-20160714_RemoD

Thursday (7/7) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM
presents
ALADDIN (1986)

Anyone expecting to see a kiddie movie along the lines of the 1992 Disney animated hit is going to be sorely disappointed. This bizarre and raunchy update of the Arabian Nights classic features European superstar Bud Spencer (Carlo Pedersoli) as a genie who pops out of a lantern in modern-day Miami and grants a teenager named Al Haddin his proverbial three wishes. When this movie aired in The Vortexx last April, it immediately shot to the top of our viewers' "worst movies" list. And tonight we're going to remind you why.

 

Vortexx-Jekyll and Hyde-20160715_Mansion

Friday (7/15) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET)
MANSION OF MYSTERY
presents
JEKYLL & HYDE: THE MUSICAL (1973)

MANSION OF MYSTERY with Scarlett Kaiju and CJ the Werewolf presents JEKYLL & HYDE: THE MUSICAL. Unfortunately, this is not the long-awaited film version of the Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical. It's an obscure, ultra-cheapo 1973 Made-for-TV adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic. Despite a stellar cast including Kirk Douglas, Donald Pleasence, and Susan George, not one of these thespians can carry a tune -- something of a fatal flaw in a musical. Douglas does manage a clever turn as the sinister Mr. Hyde, but he is horribly miscast as the kindly Dr. Jekyll and the infamous "bicycle scene" must be seen in order to be believed. All in all, a fitting entry for our "worst movies" week.

Vortexx-Santa Martians-20160716_CinemaInsomnia

presents
SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964)

Join us tonight for the second worst of "the worst" as CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO presents SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964). Santa is kidnapped by the Martians, who take him back to their own planet where he brings fun, happiness and Christmas cheer to the children of Mars -- while inflicting untold misery on all the rest of us. Broadway veteran John Call stars as Santa. The supporting cast includes a prepubescent Pia Zadora as the little Martian girl Girmar, Tony Award winner Bill McCutcheon as the buffoonish Dropo, and Jamie Farr lookalike Al Nesor as Stobo. Mr. Lobo and co-host Miss Mittens make this steaming turd somewhat more palatable with hilarious yuletide humor, retro toy commercials, cuddly cartoons, movie trailers, and a special guest appearance by Ro-Man from Robot Monster.

SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY (1972)

Join us tonight for the rock-bottom absolute "worst of the worst" as THE BONE JANGLER with co-hosts Nocturna and HARMony host SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY (1972). This live-action feature begins with Santa (with a large sweat stain on his butt) and his sleigh stuck in the sand on a Florida beach, just days before Christmas Eve. The children from a nearby subdivision try to extricate the sleigh but nothing works, and the kids are afraid they won't get any gifts on Christmas. To boost their spirits, Santa decides to tells them a story. The setting then dissolves into a movie-within-the-movie -- Thumbelina (1970) starring Shay Gardner as a bouncy, bra-less, mini-skirted hippie chick who wanders through a tacky Florida amusement park imagining she is Thumbelina. When we aired this stinker in December 2014, we had to lock the chatroom doors to prevent our viewers from fleeing in droves. And poor Destroyah, who hosted the chat, still hasn't recovered from the experience despite more than eighteen months of intensive therapy. Watch it if you dare. You've been warned!
