Bring out your Silver Shamrocks! It’s “Happy Happy Halloween” Month on Cinema Insomnia!

 

The official countdown to Halloween has begun, Cinsomniacs and Sleepless Knights. Not only that, but it is almost OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL’S 1st birthday! It’s time to break out the candy, costumes, and Jack-o-Lanterns to celebrate both Halloween and this major milestone! Ghosts are beginning their yearly haunt down the street, the zombies are stirring within their graves, and monsters and ghouls from around the world shout for their own spot in this months theme celebration.

mv5bmtg1mtgxmty2mf5bml5banbnxkftztgwodg0ntc1mde-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_We know Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, and other well-known faces in horror. For this month, we take the time to celebrate ALL monsters – both misunderstood and understood, respectively. MR. LOBO always says “They ARE NOT BAD MOVIES–Just Misunderstood” So this month, we’ll take a dive and bring you different varieties of misunderstood monsters and individuals hidden in the dark in mere tales and films who deserve to have their voice heard among the other famous monsters.

Body Snatchers, Headless Horsemen, Apocalyptic beasts, goblins, rabid bats, and much more…If you want to share a monster or horror individual you believe should have it’s voice heard, post or send a picture to our Facebook, Tumblr, or leave it in the comments below!

Also, keep your eyes open for CLASSIC CINEMA INSOMNIA episodes posted throughout the week on our pages and tune into OSI 74 for other Halloween fun!

Love Is In The Air Here At Cinema Insomnia

12654446_1095080167202705_3166004401792349798_nLove is In The Air Here! Monsters have risen, both misunderstood and understood to celebrate this month. There is much to love, regardless of the bond between the living and the undead and monsters alike. We celebrate the “misunderstood pairings” through fan art, archived images, scenes from the past.

12650811_10153892738179660_2942950735456816736_nWe’ve all have fallen in love for our individual or group of monsters. This month is not only about capturing the love between monsters and humans on film, but also our love for them. This is where you come in, Sleepless Knights and CInsomniacs! Over the years, more and more monsters have come onto the scene.

Many of you have collected memorabilia throughout the years. Some of you have posed with your favorite monsters. Others have captured footage such as this one of your monsters and their “loves”. This is your moment to join together this month to also show your “Monster Love”.

Who are your favorite monsters that you’ve come to love over the years? Which specific one captures your heart and will not let it go? This month is all about love. Love is meant to be expressed, shown, and viewed for the world.

It’s time to open up your hearts. Love is in the Air! Love Between Monsters. Love Between Humans and Monsters. Love Between Humans. Love amongst CInsomniacs and Sleepless Knights! And Love Amongst a Horror Host and Knights and CInsomniacs Around the World! Let’s Show It This Month!

Mr. Lobo Put A Spell on You For This Theme of the Month!

Last month, robots roamed the Cinema Insomnia pages. This month things seem a little funny around here. Books are floating, cats are talking, even the movies are strange. Almost as if we were under a spell…..a misunderstood spell. We are under Mr. Lobo’s hypnotic power, but what if it is deeper than that this month? Maybe a witch, perhaps? But which witch?

Witches are one of the most misunderstood characters on film and in life. Sailing through the night on their brooms, theĀ  There have also been interesting misunderstood films about them. For instance the notorious THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED-UP ZOMBIES (1964). 4811.D_210_118

Yes, that one…stop staring at the mole! It may hypnotize you and turn you into a zombie! She is only one in a long line of characters we will explore this month. Who is your favorite misunderstood witch of all time? Is it this mysterious Estrella? Or Is it someone bigger and badder? How about the Sanderson Sisters?

 

Maybe not……

Open your spell books and send us your pictures, WITCHY themed art, tattoo art, collection of your Witch themed films or figures, or pictures/video of anything you think pertains to the theme and it will be shared on our pages to be seen and enjoyed by all!

If you do not have your own piece of art, check out our ETSY shop and pick up a copy of DIXIE DELLAMORTO LOBO’s creation entitled “HAUNTED LEONA”!web res Leota 11x17Get ready for Bubbles, Toils, and Troubles This Month!
