LOBO dawned her MISS BLOB sash and MR. LOBO had the honor of hosting the annual terror of THE BLOB during BLOBFEST at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA! The Blob held back during the day outside the theatre where attendees enjoyed a fire extinguisher parade, costume contest, and all things BLOB! Later, they could view the screenings of THE BLOB(1955), THE CREATURE OF THE BLACK LAGOON 3-D(1954), and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN(1948). On Sunday, they rounded up the festivities with a screening of THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY X(2012) followed by a Q&A with the director PAUL BUNNELL. 

If you have pictures from this past weekend, send them in and we’ll share them on our pages!

–by MR. LOBO of CINEMA INSOMNIA

SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE arrived in the kingdom of infinity looking well. He is obviously enjoying his vacation after a lifetime of intense work entertaining us fans of Fantastika in classic Hammer Horror films like THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN(1957), HORROR OF DRACULA(1958),  and THE MUMMY(1959) and Summer block-busters from the STAR WARS and LORD OF THE RINGS film franchises. He even played WILLY WONKA‘s father in the TIM BURTON film, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY(2005). And Misunderstood Movie fans will remember his roles in POLICE ACADEMY 7: MISSION TO MOSCOW(1994) and the big budget comedy bomb 1941(1979).
http://www.bobwilkins.net/photo/bob_lee3d.jpg
Whithout a doubt, LEE is best loved as DRACULA, as he played the dark vampire prince in a number of sequels up into the early 1970s. However, he played many other iconic characters, co-starring in THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES(1959), and made numerous “non-PC” appearances as FU MANCHU before that was a thing. And who could forget THE PRIVATE LIFE OF SHERLOCK HOMES(1970), THE THREE MUSKETEERS(1973), and Bond film MAN WITH THE GOLDEN

 

GUN(1974). Lee appeared on the San Francisco Bay Area TV show CREATURE FEATURES to promote that film and was first interviewed by the host of that show, MR. LOBO’s mentor, BOB WILKINS.

“SIR” BOB and SIR CHRISTOPHER  met again today on a cloud of star-stuff that quickly formed itself into a facsimile of a TV Studio.

 

Bob puffed his cigar and told him how much he would be missed down on earth by us Creature Feature fans and movie fans in general. Mr. Lee was tickled when Bob informed him that CINEMA INSOMNIA is celebrating Mummy month and that we have been sharing many images of him as KHARIS THE MUMMY all over the internet. MR. LOBO will even be presenting HORROR HOTEL AKA CITY OF THE DEAD as part of the new CINEMA INSOMNIA season coming this fall on OSI 74. Bob presented Lee with an original tribute Count Dracula drawing by CI fan and artist DAVID HARDY. He smiled at all the praise and gracefully shook his head.  countLee

He then reminded Bob that he would never play DRACULA again.  But of course, he doesn’t have to…DRACULA IS FOREVER. CREATURE FEATURES ARE FOREVER.  Thank you, SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE for all your fine work. We miss you already! We still miss you, too, Bob!

Classic Fan of the Week! http://www.cinemainsomnia.com/classic-fan-of-the-week/ http://www.cinemainsomnia.com/classic-fan-of-the-week/#comments Fri, 05 Jun 2015 22:23:25 +0000 http://www.cinemainsomnia.com/?p=5016 Continue reading ]]> For the next couple weeks, we will be re-honoring some of the FAN’S OF THE WEEK! All of you and any of you may be picked for future FAN’S OF THE WEEK! If you have a story and would like to share it; you can send your pictures and story about how you found out about Cinema Insomnia, favorite episode, favorite misunderstood movie, etc to mrlobo@cinemainsomnia.com!

This we are re-honoring SIR LAWRENCE LANEY LOFTIN, the very first SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK who paved the way for this to continue:

LobofanSir Lawrence Laney Loftin is a MR. LOBO fan from way back and is in fact the poster child in our Fan of the Week graphic above.  Ever since he discovered CINEMA INSOMNIA on KEJB UPN 43 in Monroe, Louisiana, back in 2003-2004, our staff has been getting weird things in the mail from Laney–Christmas cards, postcards, magnets, books, kitsch, pulp-fiction, VHS tapes, and scandalous photos of himself with uninitiated pizza delivery girls.

We dropped in on Laney during a cross country tour and witnessed his mind boggling collection of Fantasy, Horror, Sci-fi, and Comic Book memorabilia.
It was then, in person, when Laney gave MR. LOBO the strangest gift of them all–a taxidermy piece of Cryptozoic-crypto-zoology–called a Hootenanny! This kin of the Jack-a-lope and the Swamp Booger was stuffed by his father after a close encounter.

hootenanyThe Hootenany briefly appeared in our 2013 Haunted House Special and resembles a deer’s behind with bobcat teeth. Semi-retired, Laney works at the Society for the Prevention of Meanness to Laney, when he is not lobbying for his local tavern or Pizza place to show Cinema Insomnia episodes on the big screen instead of Svengoolie. 

He spends countless hours making crude memes of MR. LOBO for the internet and has crashed MST3k screenings while wearing his CINEMA INSOMNIA T-shirt. Each month, he sends us different pictures that complement our THEME OF THE MONTH! Whether it’s a hilarious meme, film poster, or picture edit-SIR LAWRENCE never stops showing his support for CINEMA INSOMNIA and his other CInsomniac and Sleepless Knight Family.

laneythrowbackThank You, Lawrence Laney Loftin, valued Sleepless Knight, for all your support over the years and for watching all those misunderstood movies!

Today, we re-honor you and open the doors for the future FAN’S OF THE WEEK! Send in your stories TODAY!

As more news arises from OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL and CINEMA INSOMNIA, this month’s THEME OF THE MONTH shall bring it’s own sort of terror! For years, the mysteries of the Egyptian kings have baffled archeologists, historians, and scientists. Some have said the tombs hidden in the masses of sand and earth contain evil curses who rack the bodies of searchers who stumble upon them. For years, Universal and Hammer along with many independent films have told many different adaptions of the tale of THE MUMMY!

image2sIt all began with BORIS KARLOFF’s 1932 classic, THE MUMMY. His monster wreaked havoc, conquering anyone who was in his path. From there, a legend was born and from there did many films follow. 

We’ve seen infinitely many different adaptions of this tale. THE MUMMY’S HAND (1940), THE MUMMY’S CURSE (1944), THE MUMMY’S GHOST, and many more. Then HAMMER FILMS began it’s own reign of terror.

This month, we will dive deep into the adaptions of THE MUMMY and maybe even discover a few surprises along the way. What is your favorite adaption of THE MUMMY? Do you prefer BORIS KARLOFF, LON CHANEY JR., or CHRISTOPHER LEE as the monster?

What is your favorite MUMMY franchise film? Do you prefer HAMMER or UNIVERSAL? Mummy-CurseSend us your pictures, MUMMY themed art, tattoo art, collection of your Mummy films or figures, or pictures/video of anything you think pertains to the theme and it will be shared on our pages to be seen and enjoyed by all!

Help us celebrate the “uncovering” of THE MUMMY as well as the more news to come from OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL. Keep Your Eyes Open, Your Curiosity in Check, and BEWARE OF THE MUMMY!

Today, he tells us his story about how Mr. Lobo got him started in the hosting biz without even knowing it…

MeandCam  “I’ve always loved movies. Probably because I was born during a broadcast of the movie Yellow Submarine. Most of my happiest memories growing up involved going to the old Ferguson Hills Drive-In or the Mount Healthy Drive-in (Both were in Cincinnati, Ohio). My mom tells me that I used to make her read all of the credits in the movies and tv shows that were on tv. In fact, that’s how I learned to read because she got tired of reading every credit that she told me to. Even at a very young age, while most of my friends were watching the new shows and movies, I was watching films by The Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the new stuff too. But when any movie was on, I would definitely watch it.
