Hailing from London, BUNNY GALORE is a horror hostess herself inspired mostly by ELVIRA–but also, MR. LOBO. With some help from her carer, MARTIN RAMSDIN, she is bringing this traditionally American folk art to “Tellies” in the United Kingdom on SKY channels 231, 201, and 203. She can also be seen on the new BIZZARE TV ROKU Channel.
She sawCINEMA INSOMNIA’s BIGFOOT MYSTERIOUS CREATURE(1975)episode online in 2012 and has been stuck with us ever since! She said it reminded her of Arthur C. Clark’s MYSTERIOUS WORLD TV series from her childhood–in fact, the crystal skull from the titles still scares her!
The outrageously funny and talented Bunny Galore flies her CInsomniac flag high. She gobbled up CINEMA INSOMNIA DVD’s like PRINCE OF SPACE(1959)(now out-of-print), purchased LOBOVISION GLASSES, Art Prints by Mr. Lobo and Mrs. Dixie Dellamorto Lobo, and is proud to display her OFFICIAL FAN CLUB KIT and Certificate.
She organized the first known Trans-Atlantic horror host team up to present CARNIVAL OF SOULS(1962) on SKY–Staging, Scripting, and Storyboarding this historic project that brought her and her favorite horror host, MR. LOBO, together(on screen, anyway) in a series of comedic skits based on the film.
She is a tireless booster of Cinema Insomnia and cult films in general and Hopes that one Day Mr. Lobo will host the Oscars. Thank You, Miss BUNNY GALORE, valued Sleepless Knight, for all your support and hard work and for watching and presenting all those Misunderstood Movies. We hope for many more collaborations in the future. Mr. Lobo will be sending you a “fan of the week” award–THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK–for June 6th through June 12th 2014!
Editors note: For those of you keeping track, we skipped a few days on the certificate, so that the Fan of the Week’s reign begins on the Friday it is officially announced.
The download of HORRIBLE NOISES OF MR. LOBO’S VERY BAD MANOR left some wanting an actual copy that can be held and cuddled. We still have a shred of hope for a vinyl release–but for now you can spin this disc in your CD player, laptop, discman, boom box, or car stereo for the low price of around ten American dollars. The cover was designed by Dixie Dellamorto and Mr. Lobo and features art by BRAINS comic artist Paul Allen on the back. We made improvements to the sound quality and added a bonus track. There are 20 tracks of semi-original spooky tales written and performed by your host with the most–Mr. Lobo.
First off, MR. LOBO is not a journalist nor Historian and doesn’t always get things right. But we’re just a tad miffed right now over a recent article. You would think common sense would dictate that the purpose of a STAR ON THE WALK OF FAME is to acknowledge, remember, and respect a someone’s accomplishments.
Hollywood industry publication VARIETY posted this slightly snarky article“‘Blob’ Director Jack L. Harris Gets His Walk of Fame Close-up” This is kinda nice–However, he was not the “Director” of the Blob but “Producer” and his middle initial is “H” not “L” and there is a lot of dismissing language as far the types of films he presented–calling him huckster(as if A-Movie producers are not).
After a career in distribution, THE BLOB (1958), was Harris’ his producing debut. It was Steve McQueen’s first starring role and a Drive In-Smash as the B-Feature to I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE(1958). According to the Variety article “Harris persuaded a sleepy Christian-themed film company in Pennsylvania to put its trained technicians to work on the movie, which was shot in three weeks at a cost of $110,000.” This seems like a condescending slap in the face at the expense of Directors Irwin “Shorty” Yeaworth Jr. and Russell S. Doughten Jr. and all the hardworking folks of the Phoenixville area who to this day are VERY proud their part of their part in Monster Movie History.
The article also says that THE BLOB (1958) grossed more than $3 million and Harris has never revealed how the sticky red ooze was made–Well, he probably didn’t know!
You may not get to Hollywood to see his star on the sidewalk but you can enjoy his colorful legacy by coming to Phoenixville July 11th-July 13th and seeing THE BLOB on big screen in the famous COLONIAL THEATRE where it filmed at our annual BLOBFEST hosted this year by MR. LOBO! And Look for JACK H. HARRIS running out of the theater in his Hitchcockian cameo!
