SIR SCOTT BRADLEY has been a monster-sized fan of misunderstood movies since he was a little kid. 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..
