It's October, so it's time for all things creepy and spooky! Come with us as we go back and explore the history of horror hosts with our good friend, the knowledgeable and witty Lord Blood-Rah. For many of us, our memories of classic horror and monster movies are inseparably bound with the unique characters who presented these films to us, late on a Saturday night. Bob Wilkins, Count Gore De Vol, Svengoolie, Elvira, Seymour - the list goes on and on. We reminisce about these classic hosts, as well as talk about some of the newer ones, the ins and outs of procuring films to show, and how many hosts have transitioned to the internet. If there's anything you wanted to know about horror hosts, you need to listen to this episode!

Lord Blood-Rah has a couple of big shows coming up that are not to be missed. First, on October 13th, is Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre Halloween Horror Show at the Landmark Cinema in Peoria, Illinois! Our Lordship will be showing a bunch of scary short subjects followed with the cult favorite, Horror Express! You haven't lived til you've seen Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Telly Savalas(!) together in a film.

Then on October 27th, Lord Blood-Rah brings the chills to Moraga, California and the Rheem Theater for his Halloween Psycho Show, where he'll screen selected shorts and the classic Dementia 13! For more details on both shows, and also info on how to catch Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre, go to his site: http://www.lordbloodrah.com/
Our closing song for this episode is from the talented Mr. Lobo of Cinema Insomnia (http://www.cinemainsomnia.com/). Many thanks to him for allowing us to use it. We hope you enjoy "Halloween Candy."
