The cool Ghould Needs your support.

Today I recently received some disheartening news from a friend within the horror host community. It was told to me that Zacherley / Roland was recently hospitalize. Zacherley is a legend and a forefather within the community. He will be turning 98 next Monday. The community and this blog is asking that you send him some positive thoughts and prayers during this time to him and his family. This man is inspiration to many with in the community. I know he has become an inspiration to me. He had taken a character that was thrown in his lap and shaped it to the iconic status it is today. He still dresses in costume, sign autographs, and perform on stage. Which is amazing to see at his age. Here is hoping he has a speedy recover.

MST3K has found its home.

As you now as of last year, Joel Hodgson the original series creator of Mystery Science Theater 3,000 has been working towards bring show back with a new cast and a new season. He started a Kickstarter program in November of last year to get 5.5 million in order to gain funding for twelve episodes. At the end of the campaign they were able to get close to 5 million dollars. They are currently selling different types of merchandises in order to gain the rest of the money. Everything seems to be in place with funding almost all there, new cast set, and writers. The only piece of the puzzle missing was where the show will be broadcasted. Would it be syndicated with a big television channel such as Comedy Central or SYFY as it was before?

The answer was recently reveled this pass weekend at San Diego Comic Con by Joel Hodgson that the new season of the show would be put on through Netflix. It seems like they decided to follow the trend that many other horror hosts has done by going through a streaming service. You will be able to get it in United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Now new yet on when the season will start but Netflix has already starting to put out promos for it. It was a short promo basically stating that the show was coming soon.  I am sure more news will be coming soon.

Currently for the merchandise sale for MST3K to get the final funding is currently just take pre-orders.link is below:

Throwback Thursday Horror Host Clip of week



Joe Bob Briggs

This weeks clip is a fun crossover of horror hosts. One host on the rise and another doing his last appearance. Joe Bob Briggs was in his second year of Joe Bob's Drive-In Theater when this clip was filmed. Brigg's show started in 1990 on the cable channel  called, The Movie Channel. The other host is Ghoulardi, which last had his own show in 1966 in Ohio. The name of the show was known as Shock Theater. It is interesting to see how a legend interacts with a future legend at that time. Even to see there characters interact and have them do an interview at the end of the movie between the two out of character. I thought this clip was interesting and educational on Ghoulardi's career. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Comment below what you think.

Joel Hodgson is doing some Kickstarting to bring back the show.

If your a horror host fan, Christmas may have come early for you. Joel Hodgson had made a big announcement that he wants to  bring back Mystery Science Theater 3,0000. And he started a Kickstarter campaign in order to gain enough money for a new season. The main goal is Two million they are hoping to use that in order to make three episodes of the show.  And take those episodes and shop them around to the different networks. The more they get from the Kickstarter campaign the more episodes they can make. (If you look at chart A below it give a break down of the money to episode ratio they can make.)

Some other cool new is that some cast from the original shows will appear in some shape or form on the show. Also new cast members will take over a new host and different voices for the robots I believe plus there will be a new mad scientist to torture the new host and robots. The final item to bring up is there is different rewards that you get for donating money. It varies from being enrolled in Mst3k information club to being in an episode and going to the premier of the first episode as a V.I.P. If you want learn more about the rewards and more about the new show you can click on this link Bring Back MST3K. Also at the link you can donate your money to the cause.

I grew up watching the show and was one of the few introductions I had to a Horror Hosts. There was also Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs in the area I could watch as a kid but MST3K became a main stay in my house. I think it will be great that a new generation will be able to gain that experience as I did. As I am a writing this I know they have met there goal and it is still climbing which is great. So expect three episodes in the future of the show. Below is some pictures and clips to help to explain more of what Joel is planning for the show.

Uncle Ted was a older gentleman with his dopey nephew Nefu Ned hosting horror movies on late nights in Wilkes-Bare, Pennsylvania. He would do some fun magic tricks and funny skits in between the breaks of the movies. He was a fun host and had some interesting characters popping up on show  such as an Elvis impersonator .The shows he hosted were Uncle Ted's Ghoul School (1974- 1982) and Uncle Ted's Monstermania (1984 to unknown date). This week clip includes various clips from his  shows. I hope you enjoy the clips and have some laughs as i did. Comment below what you think. Stay creepy my friends.
