NEW SEASON starts TONIGHT! MR. LOBO cleans house in an all new CINEMA INSOMNIA show featuring a classic film!

The 16th Season funded by YOU, the CInsomniacs, kicks off with a brand new show. More never-before-seen shows and brand new shows are slated to drop over the next 5 weeks with more shooting planned for July! This victory is a tad bittersweet. We’ve had our ups and downs preparing this season for you. Our BIG BIG CREATURE FEATURES crossover episode that we originally had planned for tonight fell apart due to time, technical, and budgetary constraints–but with your help will to be completed later in the season. We did not want to postpone the launch or let you down so, for now, we literally pulled a show out of our behinds to fill the #1 slot. It’s a coming home episode in all respects.

This next bit might contain SPOILERS…

MR. LOBO and MISS MITTENS get back to basics and get their groove back as they try to rebuild their Misunderstood Empire in this very cathartic, experimental, and improvisational episode directed by PAUL SANDERS of BESTOW TV and edited by AARON LANE. MIDNIGHT FRIGHTS creator ERIK MILLER(MARK OF THE DAMNED) is our special guest, and ORMON GRIMSBY of MONSTER CREATURE FEATURE provides some excellent opening animation scored by CREATURE FEATURES producer/archivist/Webmaster SCOTT MOON to commemorate or 16th Season.

We feel it has some great surprises for fans and some of the funniest moments ever on the show. “The Movie” is sort of of irrelevant this time but parallels the wrap around story–in many ways. The film is spiritually connected to the heritage of the first KXTV season of CINEMA INSOMNIA…

We hope you get under the covers with some root beer floats and enjoy tonight’s “homecoming” show on OSI 74 for ROKU…we’re glad to be back with you!

“1970’s Mr. Lobo” is FAR OUT….watch a “lost” space episode from our archives…

Cinema Insomnia – S2E01 – BATTLE OF THE WORLDS from OSI 74 on Vimeo.

While we’re on the subject of “lost” episodes. Long time Cinema Insomnia fans: Do any of you happen to have the following episodes taped off TV?

Casablanca Express
A Christmas Carol
Crawling Eye
Day Time Ended
Giant Gila Monster
Killers From Space
The She Creature
The Visitor

These are the only episodes remaining that we know of that are currently lost from the entire 16 year run of CINEMA INSOMNIA WITH MR. LOBO. A few of them, I know I’ve seen tapes lying around Casa de Lobo, but who the hell knows where they are. Some of the others, are currently lost to the ages, but I figure it couldn’t hurt to see if some OCD fan out there may have taped them.

It’s Intermission Time!!! Time to check out the Top Movie Themed Online Slots

Going to the movies is always a unique experience, regardless whether you loved or hated the movie you’ve just watched. Any movie addict knows that catching up with latest releases and having an opinion on Oscar nominees is a crucial part of everyone that enjoys spending weekends in front of the TV.
However, what not many fans of blockbusters and indie releases know is the fact that lots of all-time favorite movies boast with their own online slots. Namely, online slot developers have discovered that movie-themed slot machines are quite popular among players and therefore new such releases are launched pretty often. It seems that among the hundreds of different Slot themes, movies are high on the list of fan-favorite ones. Thus, here is a list of three top online slots based on popular movies.

Ace Ventura
Ace Ventura is a classic Hollywood movie, perfect for spending the night laughing your head off. A popular company in the online gambling industry Playtech has therefore created a 243-ways to win video slot with five reels. Probably the most entertaining part of the game, aside the Ace Ventura hilarious symbols, is the free spins feature that can earn players lots of cash. Also, there are in-reel features that are randomly triggered and show Ace summoning jungle friends, doing the recognizable sneaky walk or respining losing spins.

Jurassic World
Microgaming is a company that develops online slots and that holds the rights to releasing titles based on the Jurassic Park franchise. Several years ago, the company launched the Jurassic Park slot, which was a huge hit among players, and very recently it presented fans with the brand-new Jurassic World slot. On the reels players will notice four main characters, including Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) as well as lots of scary dinosaur symbols. Moreover, Jurassic World offers a free spin feature that takes players either to the gyrosphere valley, the creation lap or the raptor den. Cherry on top is the indominus feature, during which the indominus Rex can appear in front of the reels and boost your winnings.

Planet of the Apes
Planet of the Apes is a franchise that doesn’t need any introduction, considering it’s been a huge hit among viewers for 50 years now. Well, in 2017 the gambling company NetEnt has released an impressive Planet of the Apes video slot, which boasts with catchy soundtrack and lots of innovative features. For example, the playing screen seems separated into two parts, Rise and Dawn, something uncommon for slots. This game features characters from both the Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; thus, prepare to see Freida Pinto, Tom Felton, John Lithgow on the reels as well as Gary Oldman, Jason Clark and Keri Russel.

Final Thoughts
Even though these three picks seem the most attractive in the past few months, there are a lot of other movie themed video slots to have in mind. For example, fans adore Basic Instinct, Rocky and Terminator 2 both for their themes as well as top-class design and special features. Other popular picks fitting here include A Nightmare on Elm Street, Austin Powers and Bridesmaids.
