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.

What was YOUR favorite moment at BLOBFEST 2015?

We’ve Prepped the Cinema Insomnia Canvas for This Fan of the Week!

10815853_10152413067037187_2084288932_nSIR STEVEN COURSE first viewed our beloved host on the former MONSTER CHANNEL formerly online. The thing that drew him to the show; however, was actually not a usual story. In fact, the unique piece to the show that truly hooked him to CINEMA INSOMNIA was….THE HYPNOTIC EYE! The moment he saw it, he fell under the entrancing spell and has tuned into the show ever since. Also a few years ago, he attended the annual BLOBFEST held in Phoenixville, Pennsylvannia where he got to meet MR. LOBO.

As a child, Steven was allowed to stay up for CREATURE FEATURES which could be viewed in his hometown of Cambridge, England where him and his family lived. during that time. He still enjoys tuning into misunderstood films along with lower budget genre films which made him who he is today. He demonstrates his love for these films as well as CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO through his art.

Each piece he creates is unique and from his heart as we can see in the art pieces of SLITHER(2006) and THE DEADLY MANTIS(1957) and MR. LOBO, of course.
