Here is Sleepless Knight Hall of famer Newt Wallen!

He is a Writer, Actor. Producer for the popular web series underbellyshow.tv and the upcoming cult film Midnight Show. His birth into the Sleepless Knight family can be traced to being a long time fan of Cinema Insomnia and Mr. Lobo all the way back to the Church of Ed Wood website in the early 2000’s. 

Newt followed and admired Mr. Lobo as a personality from viewing the American Scary documentary, speaking about the various legendary Hrror Hosts from the past to the present. He also admired our Host’s presentation of the Ed Wood Jr. character, “Criswell”, in the Criswell predicts web series as the PLAN 9 remake began to take shape.


imageAfter years of following Cinema Insomnia, a chance meeting occurred at the National Haunters convention in Oaks, PA where Newt and Mr Lobo met and a friendship quickly formed. The two have worked together on several segments of Newt’s love letter to grindhouse films entitled MIDNIGHT SHOW, created videos for Arcana Comics and Underbelly, and presented LIVE Cult film nights at the Anthony Wayne Theater in Wayne, PA.

Newt hopes for many many more cult collaborations for years to come…and we look forward to be seeing more  from you

This Month We Remember Legendary Director Wes Craven!

Directors come from all over the world to create their masterpieces: misunderstood and understood. Throughout the years, we have seen directors rise then turn into the great beyond. A couple weeks ago, we lost one of the most remembered horror directors of all time. That director was the legendary Wes Craven.

11988499_862880197158597_9142582958466751279_n(1)Wesley Earl “Wes” Craven did not begin his directing career right away. At first, he worked in the education field as an English professor at Westminster College then a Humanities professor at Clarkson University. During his teaching career, he purchased a 16mm camera and began working on short films.

In 1972, he released his first full-length horror feature entitled, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. The film told the story of two teenage girls on their way to a rock concert. While on their way, they are kidnapped by four psychotic killers. Later, the killers stumble upon one of the girls’ home where her parents obtain their revenge on them.

11227524_10153683708029430_3309093586970181323_nHe continued his reign of film terror through taking you on a “family trip” into the desert to visit a family of cannibals in his 1977 hit, THE HILLS HAVE EYES! It has received a continuous cult following to this day along with receiving a sequel in 1985 and remake in 2006. With another hit under his belt, this did not stop Craven from his creative streak! Wes Craven continued transforming his films from various dreams he had. One of which we know today through it’s series and it’s iconic serial killer who haunts you in your dreams. It spawned many sequels, kick started several well-known actors careers, and brought terror to the silver screen and beyond.

This month, we remember the legend Wes Craven was and commemorate his works, both the misunderstood films and accepted ones. What are your favorite Wes Craven films? Which one do you believe is the most misunderstood?

Do you have any vintage collectables, posters, or memorabilia pictures you’d like to share? You can post them on our page and they will be shared on our pages! Artists, this includes your brilliant art!

RIP Wes Craven, you will never be forgotten!

Let’s make this month memorable and discover all things “Craven”!

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

11825996_1000935806617142_6184060637867013462_n

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, the  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!

Are You Ready To “Un-Wrap” The Theme of the Month?

11393363_812873012159316_5366032138803836295_o

As more news arises from OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL and CINEMA INSOMNIA, this month’s THEME OF THE MONTH shall bring it’s own sort of terror! For years, the mysteries of the Egyptian kings have baffled archeologists, historians, and scientists. Some have said the tombs hidden in the masses of sand and earth contain evil curses who rack the bodies of searchers who stumble upon them. For years, Universal and Hammer along with many independent films have told many different adaptions of the tale of THE MUMMY!

image2sIt all began with BORIS KARLOFF’s 1932 classic, THE MUMMY. His monster wreaked havoc, conquering anyone who was in his path. From there, a legend was born and from there did many films follow. 

We’ve seen infinitely many different adaptions of this tale. THE MUMMY’S HAND (1940), THE MUMMY’S CURSE (1944), THE MUMMY’S GHOST, and many more. Then HAMMER FILMS began it’s own reign of terror.

This month, we will dive deep into the adaptions of THE MUMMY and maybe even discover a few surprises along the way. What is your favorite adaption of THE MUMMY? Do you prefer BORIS KARLOFF, LON CHANEY JR., or CHRISTOPHER LEE as the monster?

What is your favorite MUMMY franchise film? Do you prefer HAMMER or UNIVERSAL? Mummy-CurseSend us your pictures, MUMMY themed art, tattoo art, collection of your Mummy 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!

Help us celebrate the “uncovering” of THE MUMMY as well as the more news to come from OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL. Keep Your Eyes Open, Your Curiosity in Check, and BEWARE OF THE MUMMY!

Our SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK is Kooky, Spooky, and All together Ooky!

11012284_1405605769745021_1829812384_nHORROR HOST SIR ORMON GRIMSBY’s origins began in Detroit, Michigan, where he grew up watching the classic horror host SIR GRAVES GHASTLY. Since then, he has established himself and his own show MONSTER CREATURE FEATURE where he brings his own thrills to audiences.

SIR GRIMSBY considers MR. LOBO one of his influences and originally found CINEMA INSOMNIA around 2002/03 on the internet,

“I was searching to find out if there were still any hosts around and that is when I found Mr. Lobo. I immediately connected with his humor sci-fiBobmagazineand style and loved his show from the first time I saw it…I have since loved all things Lobo, including his Horror Hosts publication and Halloween CD. I am always looking forward to what he and Dixie Delamorto come up with next. They are an amazing duo.”

When asked why he keeps coming back to watch the show, he replied,

 IMG_4744“I think I connect with what they do because (Mr. Lobo comes) comes from the same era growing up (we have) the same influences. Back in time when there wasn’t as much choice, you treasured some of those gold nuggets that came your way on a Saturday afternoon.”

Here is a video of a short interview between MR. LOBO and SIR GRIMSBY:

When it comes to his favorite CINEMA INSOMNIA episode, SIR GRIMSBY explained that it would be the classic CINEMA INSOMNIA Sci-Fi episode featuring INVASION OF THE NEPTUNE MEN! Here is the episode for you to “Tune In” and Enjoy!

 

Now a legendary host in his own right and a trusted colleague, SIR GRIMSBY has joined MR. LOBO and DIXIE DELLAMORTO in their new venture and are working with them to develop a new half-hour “kids show” featuring his charcter in the spirit of HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN and PEE-WEE’s PLAYHOUSE.  This program and his original show, MONSTER CREATURE FEATURE, will air along side CINEMA INSOMNIA  any many other off-beat programs on their new production collective OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL and new internet based TV channel OSI 74. The channel is scheduled to launch this fall. More details to come…
