015-AstronautsWe hope all of you enjoyed the Solar Eclipse yesterday, no matter how short it may have been in your area. This week, we are heading back into space IN SEARCH FOR ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS! We are again asking that deep, plaguing question….”Are We Alone?”

Join us this week as we head to the stars with MR. LOBO as we explore the galaxies to learn the truth behind the stars. We will feature other forms of astronautical delights with clips, trailers, toys, and posters from space-themed features throughout the ages.

For this week’s CINEMA INSOMNIA EPISODE OF THE WEEK, we join other party guests and enter into Vincent Price’s HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959)!

Line Them Up For The New Addition to the Sleepless Knight Hall of Fame!

9a684c7e71d5bdff9c56ae9a5297528bFrom the city of Baltamore, SIR DANIEL MYERS started his entry into the world of Horror Hosts back n the days before cable television where households around the globe had only a mere 5 or 6 channels to choose from verses what is available today. There were occasions where he would tune into the smaller television stations who would show old black and white horror or science fiction films. On one particular night as he was flipping through the channels, he ran across an odd program broadcasting out of Washington D.C.  hosted by in his mind was an equally odd vampire, the one and only Count Gore De Vol! 

Later down the road, Count Gore de Vol bid farewell to his former channel due to it being sold. It was a very sad day for Sir Daniel. But his sadness was soon ended when he rediscovered his childhood Horror host along with discovering some new faces including MR. LOBO. He reflects on his new discovery,

“Years passed and then one day while browsing the Internet, a familiar face appeared!  The Count was back with his very own website showing movies once more!  Not only was he back, he had friends! Fellow horror hosts from around the country who I had never seen before!  I looked them up and found many of them online too, including the amazing Mr. Lobo and Cinema Insomnia!  It was amazing seeing all the fun programs being created by everyone all around the country!  I could tell these were labors of love that likely involved a lot of hard work, time, imagination and likely expense…..

My thoughts on Cinema Insomnia…I just love the retro feel, look and surreal (and clever) sense of humor found on Cinema Insomnia.  I sometimes wonder if Mr. Lobo is a distant, if slightly unhinged, offspring of Twilight Zone creator, Rod Serling, making keen observations of both the featured films and the mysterious world they inhabit.  But wait!  There’s more!  I also love all of the well chosen cartoon shorts, the vintage commercials and, of course, the always entertaining, lovely and never wilting Miss Mittens.”

download () Sir Daniel was kind enough to give us a peek into his personal DVD collection of Horror Hosts DVDs including the latest addition to the CINEMA INSOMNIA DVuD Family: HORROR HOTEL.

“As you can see, I have built up a nice collection representing some of the best “misunderstood” films and the great horror hosts who care for them. To you Mr. Lobo – and to all of our great horror hosts – I salute you as a fellow Sleepless Knight and thank you for all that you do!”

download (2)Today, we salute YOU Sir Daniel Myers! Thank you for your support of not only CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO but for the other Horror Hosts who are hosting their shows for both young and old. Welcome into the Sleepless Knight Hall of Fame!

Come back next week to see who else may join SIR DANIEL and the other long line of honorary Sleepless Knights! Who Knows, it may just be YOU!

LOBO.

When asked about his introduction to the show, here gave us his story in his own words:

“I was Introduced to Cinema Insomnia when I found a copy of VOYAGE TO THE PREHISTORIC PLANET(1965) at a local used book store. The DVD looked interesting so I bought it and went home and looked up Cinema Insomnia online and I have been a fan ever since.”

He followed his statement with a picture of his current collection of his 14 episodes of CINEMA INSOMNIA on DVD–with one more, HORROR HOTEL, pre-ordered and soon to join it’s plastic brethren. 12825341_843008289144010_1301116099_n
