Cinsomniacs! Mr. Lobo and the Lady Dellamorto will be going back East for another tour of duty. Our first stop is the NATIONAL HAUNTER’S CONVENTION in Oaks, Pennsylvania on May 4rd, 5st, and 6nd…er, that is, May 4th, 5th, and 6th! Calanderology was never Mr. Lobo’s best subject. There you will see attractive attractions, amazing props, haulin’ hearses, amazing masks and make ups and even horror hosts like myself and the shows founder Gravesly Macabre from Midnight Monster Hop! Mr. Lobo will have a table and will also be performing on the Main Stage. If you’re not there, you better be dead…and even death is a poor excuse.
The ballots have been counted, the votes have been rocked, the dangling chads have been kicked out of their moms basements but most importantly the results have been announced in the 10TH ANNUAL RONDO HATTON CLASSIC HORROR AWARDS! Congratulations on All the winners! Mr. Lobo’s best pals Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson (Host), Daniel Griffith( DVD Extra), Terror From Beyond The Daves(Blog), August Ragone(Interview), Midnight Syndicate(CD) took top honors and went home with the coveted CREEPER statuette! Even closer to home, MR. LOBO himself and the film he hosted HI THERE HORROR MOVIE FANS swept the HONORABLE MENTION category…I think we get a ribbon or a rainbow pencil or maybe a gold star sticker on our foreheads.
Be sure to cast your vote next year if you’d like to see Mr. Lobo finally take the RONDO for FAVORITE HORROR HOST…

Please contact us with any feedback and let us know how we can make this site more useful and enjoyable…and please share with your closest 4000 friends!
Big changes looming for Cinema Insomnia. Mr. Lobo is working on a few backdoor deals to premiere some NEW Movies and will be working with exciting special guests. Shooting has halted due to the holidays, unforeseen production woes, and some family health issues but have no fearâ€¦many new shows are in the can and are being edited by busy elves.
Weâ€™re going completely independent with his distribution for CI shows in 2012–although DVDs will continue to be available on TheGrindhouse.net and MrLoboshop.com until a new store can be built. DVDs are becoming less and less viable and new outlets and packaging for the shows will be a focus for 2012. While the dust settles, enjoy our youtube channel :
Mr. Lobo will be hosting another Crappy Christmas LIVE at the Crocker Museum on December 22 at 7pmâ€¦the film will be that terrifying import â€œSANTA Vs. SATANâ€ presented by Movies On A Big Screen. For info, go to Hâ€”er, here:
The winner of our â€œWho wants to Marry A Horror Hostâ€ and editor of Horror Hosts and Creature Features, Dixie Dellamorto will be tying the noose with Mr. Lobo in a private ceremony on Friday, The 13th of Januaryâ€”with a 2 public receptions later in the year–on the west coast on Friday the 13th in April and on the east coast on that same fateful date in July. We are currently raising funds for a ring and such–Any fans of this unholy union can purchase Art by Dixie and Mr. Lobo, magazines, and autographed 8X10â€™s found on their etsy site.
