It’s October and many of our Cinema Insomnia viewers are scanning Cable TV looking for Halloween shows and movies. Even the Travel Channelhas many reality shows with a horror flavor. Making Monsters is a fascinating look at the world of animatronics and mask makers. Haunt industry legend Ed Edmunds and his small staff at Distortions Unlimited work tirelessly in Greeley, CO, to create some of the scariest animations and innovative prop and creature designs.
In the latest episode, premiering last night,Â Ed faces off with world-renowned Hollywood designer and sculptor, Jordu Schell, who often assists the Distortions Unlimited crew with his creations.
Not where you might think! Although, the main thrust of the episode is about Ed and Jordu making a giant B-Movie Centipede for Ben Armstrong who Horror Hosts and Creature Features fans know as DR. SPECULO, who now owns the NETHERWORLD haunt in Atlanta.
But the side story revolves around Ed and Jordu donating sculptures they made to a charity auction at theNational Haunters Convention 65-dollars-a-plate “gala” dinner in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Mr. Lobo and Dixie where both guests of the convention and were caught by the Travel Channel cameras. This caused many “cable-ready” CInsomniacs to have seizures and heart attacks. Even spooky KDVS radio DJ Ophelia Necro caught us on her TV with her camera!
So keep your eyes peeled in the last 3 minutes of the program and see your horror host and his bride among the horror elite!
Special thanks to CInsomniac super knight Mike MacArthur for buying us dinner…Our whole group later sneaked away from out table and played with abandoned attractions and arcade games! Mr. Lobo wishes that was on the Travel Channel!

Toy number one is a naturally super glow-in-the-darkParanormal Activity 4 Sticker. The chilling X-Files style typewriter font warns you that “All The Activity Has Led To This…” but when you turn out the lights a glowing number 4 shines out in the dark. You can pretend you are making out with The Invisible Girl from the Fantastic Four.
Anyway, it’s free and it’s all yours courtesy of CINEMA INSOMNIA and TOY FUSION! The second toy is actually a toy and not a sticker and it’s from the scariest Halloween film of them all!
It’s E. T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL bendable action-figure! This Alien from the 1980’s is a nifty promotional item to promote the Universal release of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on Blue Ray. Take them away because Mrs. Lobo is extra-terrified of them. He is all yours to play with or keep in the package…a THANK YOU gift for joining THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS OF INSOMNIA.
