Since MR. LOBO has been asked–here’s the skinny about the BLOBFEST festivities for TOMORROW, Saturday! He will have a table at the street fair all day this year so you won’t need to buy a admission ticket or wristband to say “Hello to Mr. Lobo”! Stay for the evening show inside at the Colonial and recite THE INSOMNIAC OATH before the double feature of THE BLOB and THEM! Let’s get gooey, LIVE and IN PERSON!
THE QUEST FOR BLOBFEST: MR. LOBO’S ON SCREEN CUT INS
This year Mr. Lobo just missed the Blob on Friday when he got lost due to road closures on the way to the stage show. The entire Colonial Theater yet again escaped with their lives as the Blob was eventually contained by the Phoenixville, PA Fire Department. Dr. Frank N. Stone used his super science to communicate with Mr. Lobo on route via “live” video link just before the annual run-out. This video is a condensed trilogy of cut-ins from the big screen. Enjoy.
Tomorrow Mr. Lobo and Dixie head for THE DAYS INNÂ inÂ Butler, PA for the 2012 MONSTER BASH conference! We will be in the main hall near registration to greet fans and monsters along side Penny Dreadful and Company from Shilling Shockers.Â They will be running classic horrorÂ films all weekend and on Saturday Night at 12:30 for this historic PREHISTORIC themed edition of their MONSTER BASH (Techically JUNE 24!) Mr. LoboÂ and hard working cave girl Miss CretaceousÂ will beÂ giving prizes to volunteers who will help us with our DINO SIZED games in the name of science, leading the audience to perform the INSOMNIAC OATH, and presenting the MISUNDERSTOOD CLASSIC REPTILICUS! All this happens after the outdoor drive-in style films in the insect rich parking lot. After the preshow, REPTILICUS runs in itâ€™s entirety without interuption other than the usual mild heckling and snores!
Mr. Lobo will have a vendor table with all NEW CINEMA INSOMNIA prints and merchandise, art, and goodies for the kids…LIKE DINO DNA SLIME! We will also have a relative of Reptilicus growing live in aÂ glass containerÂ at our table!
We’ll aslo be hanging with our palsÂ Our pals Count Gore, Ghoul A Go Go will also RONDO winning director Daniel Griffith, and Buddy “Cult Movies” Barnett.Â The ZOM-BEE channel will be recording parts of this show for upcoming new epiosdes of CINEMA INSOMNIA!
