Time to Put on Your Wood-O-Vision Glasses this Week!

Last week the solar eclipse took us on a journey in SEARCH FOR ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS, while this week…we take a look at a vicious creature in Ed Wood, Jr.’s VENUS FLYTRAP or THE REVENGE OF DOCTOR X (1970).

Do you dare to enter into world of Ed Wood Jr. and witness this creature that defies the laws of nature? Join us this week as we celebrate not only the creature but other misunderstood creatures, both from the mind of Ed Wood, and beyond!

 

With Halloween just around the corner, we have new shirts in our store!

Yesterday, We Searched for the Solar Eclipse! Today, Astronauts!

015-AstronautsWe hope all of you enjoyed the Solar Eclipse yesterday, no matter how short it may have been in your area. This week, we are heading back into space IN SEARCH FOR ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS! We are again asking that deep, plaguing question….”Are We Alone?”

Join us this week as we head to the stars with MR. LOBO as we explore the galaxies to learn the truth behind the stars. We will feature other forms of astronautical delights with clips, trailers, toys, and posters from space-themed features throughout the ages.

 

 

Speaking of Outer Space, don’t forget we have BRAND NEW Cinema Insomnia and OSI74 t-shirts!

In Loving Memory of Haruo Nakajima!

15741073_10154024730361583_3253390045722977966_nLast week, we lost a legend both here and overseas. In 1954, a young Haruo Nakajima “suited up” as the monster who terrorized Japan….and soon the world. He played this creature through twelve films and made his mark for years to come!

This week, we will remember the legend through Godzilla. Clips, pictures, and we’d love you to share your memories if you had the opportunity to meet this man. He may be gone, but his mark on cinema will never be forgotten. Let us gather together during this time and celebrate the man who brought GODZILLA to life!

In case you missed it…..this past Monday, MR. LOBO pitched a dark supernatural adventure film where a group of millennial’s search for an old TV studio gets them sucked into retro TV shows trying to break into the real world called “DARK CHANNELS” on the PITCH IT MOVIE PODCAST.

 

For this week’s CINEMA INSOMNIA EPISODE OF THE WEEK, we join other party guests and enter into Vincent Price’s HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959)!

RIP George A. Romero

It is a sad day, Sleepless Knights. A sad day indeed. Today, we lost a pioneer in the horror film industry who we hold a special place within our hearts. In 1968, a gentleman from Pennsylvania released a monster upon the world. A monster unlike people had ever seen around that time. This man shook millions across the globe for almost over fifty years and counting. This man was George A. Romero.

Night of the Living Dead – ReAnimated from OSI 74 on Vimeo.

 We may mourn today, but this week we remember the night he brought the dead back to life on our screens and his other accomplishments and contributions. This week, let us remember him and celebrate his life through his hard work and what he brought into this world. He will be missed and forever treasured by the young and the old, but will forever inspire future generations on how to never give up on one’s dream.

RIP, GEORGE A. ROMERO, Father of the modern movie zombie!
