20160612_The Vortexx - Bobby Gammonster

Sunday (6/12) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET) - MONSTER MOVIE NIGHT presents EMBRYO (1976)

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

20160613_The Vortexx - Remo D's Manor of Mayhem

Monday (6/13) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET) - REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM presents DEMONS OF LUDLOW (1983)

REMO D.'S MANOR OF MAYHEM presents The Vortexx premiere of DEMONS OF LUDLOW (1983). Some murderous demons lurk inside an antique piano in this spooky horror thriller set in a picturesque New England coastal town. It's the bicentennial of Ludlow, and the town's founder and a bunch of his warlock friends, all dressed up in cheap-looking Thanksgiving costumes, have returned to extract revenge on the descendants of the townsfolk who killed them. Much mayhem ensues in what some consider to be director Bill (Monster a Go-Go) Rebane's masterpiece. [Movie poster courtesy of Night Visitor Video.]

20160614_The Vortexx - Bordello of Horror

Tuesday (6/14). 9:00 P.M. (ET) - BORDELLO OF HORROR presents ANATOMY OF A PSYCHO (1961)

BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow, Mistress Malicious, Sgt. Drizzlepuss, and Ali Katt presents ANATOMY OF A PSYCHO (1961). A disturbed young man goes after the folks who sent his equally whacked-out brother to the gas chamber. Ed Wood contributed to the screenplay of this low-budget thriller under the name of Larry Lee, and the film uses music originally used for Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space. In addition to the movie, Freaky will be entertaining us with an interview with Fred Schepartz, the author of Vampire Cabbie, special musical guests Zombie Ghost Train, a movie review by Mark Krawczyk from The Final Cut, and more!

20160615_The Vortexx - Dr Gravestone & Your Final Answer

Wednesday (6/15). 9:00 P.M. (ET) - WEDNESDAY NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE!

Join us tonight for a WEDNESDAY NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE! We begin the festivities with SIR GRAVESON PRESENTS, a great new show from Detroit in the vein (so to speak) of the legendary Sir Graves Ghastly. Tonight Sir Graveson and his co-hosts Vampon and Rusty Swallows are presenting the Arch Hall Jr. classic EEGAH! (1962) co-starring Richard (Jaws) Kiel and Arch Hall Sr. In keeping with the spirit of tonight's movie, Caveman Woodman and Bam Bam Moss are Graveson's musical guests. We end the evening with a generous serving of YOUR FINAL ANSWER -- a weekly comedy series (2-3 minutes per episode) hosted by The Reaper who answers Q&A's from his viewers. The Reaper is a bumbling, idiotic, and absolutely hilarious host with a habit of never quite getting around to an answer. [Movie poster by Future Dami courtesy of Deviant Art.]

20160616_The Vortexx - Alternative Realities


ALTERNATIVE REALITIES with Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo presents a THURSDAY NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE! First up is SON OF INGAGI (1940), in which a "missing link," brought to the States from Africa, goes on a murderous rampage. The movie's main claim to fame is that it's the first horror film to feature an all-black cast, including Spencer Williams, Jr., best known for playing Andy in the Amos 'n Andy television show. Then stick around for the Coleman Francis favorite BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS (1961). Tor Johnson is cast against type as a defecting Russian rocket scientist pursued by KGB agents, who stumbles onto a nuclear testing site in the Nevada wastelands, gets wasted, and becomes . . . you guessed it . . . Tor Johnson!

20160617_The Vortexx - The Golden Horde

Friday (6/17) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET) - THE GOLDEN HORDE presents NIGHTMARE CASTLE (1965)

THE GOLDEN HORDE starring the manliest of manly-men hosts Gornard The Beerbarian presents 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 wussies!

20160618_The Vortexx - Public Domain Drive-In

Saturday (6/18) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET) - PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN presents GHOSTS ON THE LOOSE (1943)

PUBLIC DOMAIN DRIVE-IN with Cnl. Graves and Smiley Bones presents GHOSTS ON THE LOOSE (1943). This is the second film that Bela Lugosi did with The East Side Kids for Monogram Pictures -- the first being Spooks Run Wild released two years earlier. This time Bela is a Nazi spy, who pretends that his hideout in New York is haunted. The East Side Kids, led by Leo Gorcy and Huntz Hall, show up, and the usual hijinks ensue. A very young Ava Gardner co-stars in her first credited role, along with Ernest "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison (the original black kid in the Our Gang shorts).

20160619_The Vortexx - Beware Theater

Sunday (6/19) @ 9:00 P.M. (ET) - BEWARE THEATER presents THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE (1962)

BEWARE THEATER with Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly present another cinematic gem from the Golden Age of Black and White (and a Vortexx favorite) -- THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE (1962). Affectionately known to its many fans as "The Brain That Wouldn't Shuddup" and "Jan in the Pan," this film has everything that a B-movie fan could possibly ask for -- mutants, mad doctors, talking heads, cat fighting strippers, and some of the sleaziest, most infectious music you've ever heard.
