CINEMA INSOMNIA is a showcase for Misunderstood Movies hosted by MR. LOBO with humor and irreverence but also with heart and humility. October is time for Halloween–arguably the most community driven of all holidays where we invite strangers to come to our homes and attend parties that celebrate diversity. With our Halloween Special we are also recognizing October as Disability History, Employment and and Awareness Month. All people with or without disabilities are deserving of respect. We all have the ability to help each other and learn from each other in different ways. Over the years we have had many exceptional fans who happen to be disabled–including MR. LOBO’s #1 fan who will never be replaced, KATIE FLUKE who passed away in 2009. Our appreciation for Katie was not defined by her disability but rather for her many strengths and for her love of the show. We are honored that we were able to be a part of her life and her family life and to be something she looked forward to. A little silliness on a Saturday night can be very important to those who have limited mobility due to temporary or permanent circumstances.
Many of the Jokes in CINEMA INSOMNIA HAUNTED HOUSE SPECIAL were written by staff gag writer ROB McCARTHY, author of the hilarious semi-autobiographical comic strip HELL ON WHEELS–about life in a wheelchair. Rob has written jokes for many CINEMA INSOMNIA epiosdes that do not have disability themes but for the Halloween Special he got to create some situational humor for a wheelchair bound character PROFESSOR EX-EXORCIST played by JOHN DIMES and add commentary from his particular point of view and with his delightfully twisted sense of humor.
Since, October IS Disability Awareness Month. Please join us at CINEMA INSOMNIA to increase public awareness and respect for individuals with disabilities. During our lifetimes each of us is likely to come into contact with someone who has a disability or we, as individuals, may become disabled ourselves. In truth, all of us are only “temporarily abled.”

LOBO in a REAL HAUNTED HOUSE with his own hilarious group of “Paranoid Investigators” comprised entirely of fellow TV HORROR HOSTS.
