12273091_10153737264273428_322218449_nFor over 10 years, you have worked endless hours, written countless script pages, spent numerous hours watering and keeping Miss Mittens satisfied, edited multiple takes and outtakes of footage (understood and misunderstood, respectively), endured trials and curve-balls life has thrown at you. Despite all of this, you keep coming back doing what you love by creating colorful art in an a gray world. This last year you created a new platform for hosts, talented artists, filmmakers, and other talented individuals to come show the world their gifts.

11228905_10208085593722765_2663900640256994906_nMrs. Lobo, you are a valuable asset and beloved companion who brings an extra spice to the show and overall community. We are all indeed thankful for you and everything you do to make OSI 74 and Cinema Insomnia possible. You are Mr. Lobo’s partner, soulmate, and partner in crime. Much like Batman, Ted Theodore Logan (Bill and Ted), and many other super teams and Wild Stallions-they are stronger together than apart.

We bring you numerous gifts, Mr. Lobo. In letters, small words, and videos. Enjoy!

A Letter From Sleepless Knight Marjorie Chardem:

Dear Mr. Lobo,

Here’s a lot of gratitude for all the good times. You’ve added only joy to my life. The first time I saw you was at the showing of The Undertaker. My friends threw me up on stage and I climbed through the ranks to become Reel 7 girl. I accomplished this only after offering a suggestion of how to dispose of a deceased baby mittens and giving one good ol’ fashioned horror gal scream! It was one of those perfect moments in life that was devoid of flaw. Just one amazing ride that didn’t have that ‘but then this happened’ downside. Also, I had never seen The Undertaker and it opened a whole new world of cinematic history and the belly of the horror hosting world to my virgin eyes. Lastly, I am still friends with the women I met onstage that night. So thank you. Yes, the letter goes on. Filming with you, Dixie and Larry was another untainted memory. I remember getting to hunt down the usher costume from All About Evil. I recall squeezing myself into the jacket and becoming a tiny piece of horror host history. Believe me when I tell you and Dixie that it was an honor to step on set and that my favorite part of the evening was when Dixie painted on my eye liner (a treat for a fan girl like me). It was also the moment that I broke Servo (face palm), realized how naughty your jokes are and you taught me the PROPER way to point to myself. I’ll never forget the moment you said to me, “Imagine I’m your harmless uncle, completely smooth from the waist down.” I was forever touched. Lastly, I just want to thank you for all you do for us. You are very kind to your fans and it’s the details that count. A handwritten note, an autograph and a sense of grace are more important than you know. Your love of cinema and your comic timing are your staples but your generosity to those who support you will be your legacy. Here’s to you and Dixie!

All of us Sleepless Knights and CInsomniacs are extremely thankful for you, Mr. Lobo. Today, we would be not where we are at without your inspiration, drive, and passion. Ok and a little bit of swing to it.12283301_10153737234408428_100695574_n We can continue to go on and on with this article but I think we’ve shown you the past three days and will continue to show you how much we appreciate you!

On a personal note, I’d like to thank you for allowing me to come on board to the Cinema Insomnia family. I’ve never felt so welcome anywhere else in my life. You have allowed me to come on board as your intern when I was in college to help and learn the ropes. For almost two years, you still keep me on and I am completely thankful for all I’ve learned and continue to learn. This community, show, and family has grown so much since then and I can’t wait to see what is to come in the future.

We love you Mr. Lobo and Mrs. Lobo and continue to believe that “THEY’RE NOT BAD MOVIES, JUST MISUNDERSTOOD!”

This Month We Remember Legendary Director Wes Craven! Mon, 07 Sep 2015 15:43:56 +0000 Continue reading ]]> Directors come from all over the world to create their masterpieces: misunderstood and understood. Throughout the years, we have seen directors rise then turn into the great beyond. A couple weeks ago, we lost one of the most remembered horror directors of all time. That director was the legendary Wes Craven.

11988499_862880197158597_9142582958466751279_n(1)Wesley Earl “Wes” Craven did not begin his directing career right away. At first, he worked in the education field as an English professor at Westminster College then a Humanities professor at Clarkson University. During his teaching career, he purchased a 16mm camera and began working on short films.

In 1972, he released his first full-length horror feature entitled, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. The film told the story of two teenage girls on their way to a rock concert. While on their way, they are kidnapped by four psychotic killers. Later, the killers stumble upon one of the girls’ home where her parents obtain their revenge on them.

11227524_10153683708029430_3309093586970181323_nHe continued his reign of film terror through taking you on a “family trip” into the desert to visit a family of cannibals in his 1977 hit, THE HILLS HAVE EYES! It has received a continuous cult following to this day along with receiving a sequel in 1985 and remake in 2006. With another hit under his belt, this did not stop Craven from his creative streak! Wes Craven continued transforming his films from various dreams he had. One of which we know today through it’s series and it’s iconic serial killer who haunts you in your dreams. It spawned many sequels, kick started several well-known actors careers, and brought terror to the silver screen and beyond.

This month, we remember the legend Wes Craven was and commemorate his works, both the misunderstood films and accepted ones. What are your favorite Wes Craven films? Which one do you believe is the most misunderstood?

Do you have any vintage collectables, posters, or memorabilia pictures you’d like to share? You can post them on our page and they will be shared on our pages! Artists, this includes your brilliant art!

RIP Wes Craven, you will never be forgotten!

Let’s make this month memorable and discover all things “Craven”!
