Summer is coming to a close for teenagers and college students, but it doesn’t end for these Summer monsters and terrors! Slimy fingers, creeping over the sand, are in search for beach goers. Summer campers are being chased by mysterious killers, lurking in the shadows of the camp. Bands with their “birth control” glasses are jamming while lovers are being hunted by hideous creatures who lurk underneath the dark waters of the deep.

 

 

All this month, we are doing everything Summer Style! Join us in sharing your favorite Misunderstood Summer Monster and Horror films! So load up on sunscreen, put on your sandals, and be ready to celebrate a month of Misunderstood Summer Horror from the past to the present!

Time For a Celebration this Month for CINEMA INSOMNIA!

Mr. Lobo "Rocker" Autographed 8x10 Print

On July 28/29th, 2001, a unknown, misunderstood Horror Host stepped out of the darkness and appeared on the airwaves with his own show entitled CINEMA INSOMNIA. At his side, his longtime companion Miss Mittens emerged from her flower pot to add her two sense about the late night feature shown to the audience.

Now almost 15 years have passed and MR. LOBO is still here, reminding us that “They’re NOT BAD MOVIES-Just Misunderstood”. Sci-fi, horror, mystery, thrillers, and more, he continues to bring us joy through our televisions, tablets, and computers for many years to come!

This month is a continuous celebration of our host and CINEMA INSOMNIA! Every day, there will be an episode shared on our pages for you to reminisce, share, and enjoy with your family. There will also be fun photos, fan art, and many other goodies! If you have any photos or video of you and MR. LOBO, do not hesitate to share them! We will re-post them on our pages throughout the month!

We also want to give a HUGE shout out to you CInsomniacs and Sleepless Knights! If it wasn’t for you, MR. LOBO would not be here today. Thank you all for your continuous support of CINEMA INSOMNIA, MR. LOBO, and all things misunderstood!

 

Enjoy the Classic CINEMA INSOMNIA episode BIGFOOT MYSTERIOUS MONSTER!

HAPPY 15TH ANNIVERSARY, CINEMA INSOMNIA!

We Honor The Legendary Actors of Horror This Month at Cinema Insomnia!

a1cf5de4ec4296f23dca3dba714d956a   Actors, they can come from anywhere, be anyone, and portray a variety of characters. But it takes a true legend to portray a character in the horror genre. When we speak about legendary horror actors, who first comes to mind? Vincent Price, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Boris Karloff – these names barely scratch the surface of those who have haunted our dreams and televisions for decades. 

vincent_priceHorror has been portrayed not only through the magic of film or television, it was also brought to life through the air waves in the days of radio. Horror Legends, Dear CInsomniacs and Sleepless Knights, are not limited to images or masks. Those who play upon your deepest fears of the corner of your imagination through their voice, now those, are where monsters truly begin to come to life.

This month, we’ll be saluting these legends, one at a time in various forms including radio broadcasts bits from horror radio actors. Also this month, Mr. Lobo will be hosting BRIDE OF THE MONSTER starring legend Bela Lugosi at the Anthony Wayne Theatre in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Mark your calendars and join in on the fun!

Salute to Our Lady Sleepless Knight and Her Sidekick into the Sleepless Knight Hall of Fame!

12825120_10154002204430850_2104321182_n

12375280_803889809722525_9039020640675502330_oEvery Sleepless Knight has a tale to tell…Lady Desiree told us her Sleepless Knight superhero origin. In a way, we are all superheroes in our own lives. Imagine the Sleepless Knights of Insomnia is not only a collective of fans of MR. LOBO and CINEMA INSOMNIA, but a gathering of heroes who together create a “misunderstood” community of individuals and families who make the universe a better place.

Today, we explore the origin of Sleepless Knight Hall of Fame Inductee, Lady Desiree Clary along with her Sidekick/Partner in crime: Philip Rostonovich!

c802ca95ededdd063ec6ea3279f3d522“In the early 1970s, a little girl defied her bedtime hour and crept stealthily along the hallway of her suburban home. Unable to venture further and risk parental ire, yet unwilling to retreat from the spooky glow of the TV, she closed her eyes and stood transfixed by the sounds of ‘Tarantula’ on Creature Features, hosted by venerable (and mega-stogiefied) Bob Wilkins on KTVU.

At roughly the same moment, a few hundred miles to the south, a young boy bravely watched the strangely fuzzy ‘Brain Eaters’ on KHJ’s Fright Night, hosted by gaunt-faced, darkly be-hatted Larry “Seymour” Vincent…from behind the demonstrable safety of the family’s living room sofa.

12784440_10154002204150850_1195764929_nDrawn together, in the fullness of time, by their mutual love for dinosaurs, monster movies and Beat poets, Desiree and Philip settled down in the suburban hinterlands of the SF Bay Area. They became Sleepless Knights at a KFJC Psychotronix evening, when they took the Insomniacs’ Oath together. Thereafter they commenced a program of ‘passively stalking’ Lobo and Dixie online and during subsequent events at the historic Bal Theater in San Leandro. They are proud owners of Horror Hosts magazine Issue #1.

 Today, Desiree is an actual, for-reals cyborg pursuing her lifelong fascination with all things historically spookidee into the Halls of Academia. Philip is a VFX artist, happily toiling away in the pixel mines of Burbank, and tends toward the more spaceship-heavy fare of classic Sci-Fi” Desiree finished her story with a grin upon her face. 

Desiree, and Phillip, thank you for your support for CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO and your undying love for misunderstood films of the past, present, and future. Give a warm hand to the newest Inductees into The Sleepless Knight Hall of Fame!
