Television in the 1950’s created a unique cultural phenomenon: a late-night show that played horror movies…aimed at kids!
The Creature Feature show and the Horror Host tradition are kept alive by a new wave of horror hosts. They do their shows by any means necessary, even without any corporate backing.
In this episode, I talk to Horror Host Mister Lobo, whose nationally syndicated show, “Cinema Insomnia” is entering its 16th season.
Join us as we talk about how B-movies “aren’t bad movies…they’re just misunderstood,” and the DIY spirit needed to keep the show going!
