VORTEXX SCHEDULE FOR JANUARY 22 – 29, 2017

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).

Top Five Films to Watch in October (Part 7)

Top Five Films to Watch in October (Part 7)

Part of the House of Tortured Souls
Staff Pick October 2016

By Tracie Hill Prichard

I love Halloween and horror movies, making it, therefor, really hard to just choose five favorites for the month. The films I have decided to feature as my must views for Halloween are in no particular order and are not all listed under the horror genre. I realize Trick 'r Treat, Halloween, and House on Haunted Hill have already been mentioned in previous staff member posts, so I will not include them in my five films, but still consider them to be in my October favorites.

Hocus Pocus (1993)
Walt Disney Pictures

Hocus Pocus / Fair use doctrine.This is a fun Halloween film for the whole family to enjoy and get in the spirit. The Sanderson sisters, who are played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Nijimy, are a delightful trio of Salem witches brought back to life 300 years after being hung by Colonials. They are on a mission to steal the souls of children to gain eternal youth but are constantly thwarted by the teen who resurrected them, his little sister, his high school crush, and an immortal cat. This film has a lot of laughs, a couple of great songs, and lovable characters.

Pumpkinhead (1988)
Director: Stan Winston

Pumpkinhead / Fair use doctrine.I love special effects, and Pumpkinhead is just an amazing creature to me. He is a unique and memorable monster creation by Stan Winston. Pumpkinhead is a demon summoned by a grieving father, Lance Henriksen, and an old witch to seek revenge on a group of teens that accidentally kills his son. The folklore and urban legend atmosphere of this film makes it a Halloween must to set the mood for the season.


The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Director: Tim Burton

The Nightmare Before Christmas / Fair use doctrine.The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my very favorite movies. The characters are lovable, the songs are memorable, and it is a lot of fun for the whole family to enjoy. The stop motion animation is brilliant and beautiful. The story revolves around Jack Skellington, voiced by Chris Sarandon, who is the bored Pumpkin King of Halloweentown that feels stuck in a routine year after year. He stumbles upon Christmastown while out walking, and discovers all new wonders and amazement. It stirs new emotions in Jack and he decides to take over Christmas this year and hires a nasty little trio of town trick or treaters to kidnap Santa Claus. Sally, his love interest, tries to discourage him and warns Jack about her vision of disaster. The inhabitants of Halloweentown get excited and deliver their own Halloween flair to an unsuspecting town at Christmas time.

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Dracula / Fair use doctrine.I love everything about this film, the costumes, the sets, the characters and the atmosphere. I have the book and I own other Dracula films, but I just really enjoy the visual adaptation of this one. Gary Oldman's performance of Dracula is enjoyable and memorable.

Carnival of Souls (1962)
Director: Herk Harvey

Carnival of Souls / Fair use doctrine.This black and white film doesn't rely on gore or shock, but rather a creepy feeling of dread. The organ music in this film really adds to the eerie overall atmosphere. I am a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Tales from the Darkside, and this film reminds me of those type of stories. It follows a young woman named Mary (Candace Hilligoss) who, after a car wreck, moves to another town where she becomes captivated by a mysterious abandoned carnival. A psychological journey of isolation follows throughout. The haunting imagery of this film will stay with you for a while after watching. It is a perfect addition to the Halloween season.

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."

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.
