It’s October and many of our Cinema Insomnia viewers are scanning Cable TV looking for Halloween shows and movies. Even the Travel Channel has many reality shows with a horror flavor. Making Monsters is a fascinating look at the world of animatronics and mask makers. Haunt industry legend Ed Edmunds and his small staff at Distortions Unlimited work tirelessly in Greeley, CO, to create some of the scariest animations and innovative prop and creature designs.
Not where you might think! Although, the main thrust of the episode is about Ed and Jordu making a giant B-Movie Centipede for Ben Armstrong who Horror Hosts and Creature Features fans know as DR. SPECULO, who now owns the NETHERWORLD haunt in Atlanta.
But the side story revolves around Ed and Jordu donating sculptures they made to a charity auction at the National Haunters Convention 65-dollars-a-plate “gala” dinner in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Mr. Lobo and Dixie where both guests of the convention and were caught by the Travel Channel cameras. This caused many “cable-ready” CInsomniacs to have seizures and heart attacks. Even spooky KDVS radio DJ Ophelia Necro caught us on her TV with her camera!
Special thanks to CInsomniac super knight Mike MacArthur for buying us dinner…Our whole group later sneaked away from out table and played with abandoned attractions and arcade games! Mr. Lobo wishes that was on the Travel Channel!
