It’s “Horror Host Appreciation Month” Here!

FotorCreatedRemember, Remember, Remember November. October was quite a month! The launch of OSI 74 was a bit bumpy but a success nonetheless. With Wild Fridays, Saturday Morning Fun and Sleepovers, and Secret Sundays, how can you not want to delve into all of the fun? Now of course we are all suffering from Post Halloween Depression Disorder, but November is here. Every November is laid out with the autumn filled days leading up to Thanksgiving.

This year, there is much to be thankful for here at CINEMA INSOMNIA.

DevilDollThe ole grand misunderstood films we have been given from the past, present, and future! Miss Mittens, in all of her green glory, always bringing joy to plants everywhere through our television and computer screens. For the long line of Reel 7 girls who have come to attempt to boost our ratings with males from 18-25, we salute you! To you loyal SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS and CINSOMNIACS for continuing to support us and our mission to spread the news that, “THEY’RE NOT BAD MOVIES–JUST MISUNDERSTOOD!” But out of all these major components that make the show great, we are forever thankful for our legendary host….MR. LOBO!

Classic horror hosts, UNCLE TED from his GHOUL SCHOOL in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and Philly legend DOCTOR SHOCK along with their own personal bags of tricks and fantastic films could be found enjoyed in his family home. When it comes to Horror Hosts, he believes it’s a uniquely bizarre art form and at the time they along with the films were frightening, but today he has found a love for them. His favorites are films created by the beloved cult or “campy” masterminds like ED WOOD, JOHN WATERS, and RUSSEL MEYER, because they celebrate the average person in today’s world and open the eyes of people from all walks of life.

 SIR SCOTT discovered MR. LOBO back in the mid-2000’s when CINEMA INSOMNIA aired on KTEH PBS channel 54 out of San Jose, California. At that time, SCOTT attended a live LOBOTRONIC film show at the BAL THEATER in SAN LEANDRO. He recalled his first thoughts and impressions of our host MR. LOBO on stage and screen.

“I loved his patter with the audience and his persona. I loved the minimalist approach and the knowing, self-deprecating humor, and became a steady viewer–What I love about MR. LOBO is his ability to take the limitations of a budget and resources and make them part of his art. He flaunted it and transcended it, allowing a knowing wink at himself as well as the movies. And I LOVED the commercial breaks and the taped mini-movie around ‘LAST MAN ON EARTH(1964)’ Great Stuff!”

SIR SCOTT has helped advertise as well as “random vandalism”, as he called it, for MR. LOBO’S many live shows at the Bal Theater. He recalled the highest point of his fandom was when he was able to supply some tombstones and decorative props for MR. LOBO’s Halloween show at the Theater.

“Sleepless Knight Scott Bradley is the real deal. We need more like him. He really gets what we are doing and knows what we are up against to do this kind of show in this day and age. He provided much appreciated support when we were doing shows in the bay area. He is now part of our nation-wide CInsomniac family and helps make this world safe for Misunderstood Movies.” –says Mr. Lobo.

Scott also donated to CINEMA INSOMNIA’S 10th ANNIVERSARY KICKSTARTER and proudly displays his “thank you” certificate and screen used LOBO TIE..
