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.

Chart A: The breakdown of the ratio of how much money need and how many shows can be produced for that amount.

Throwback Thursday Horror Host Clip of week

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.

Throwback Thursday Horror Host Clip of week

Crazy to see how young Joel is and the early look of the robots.

The Horror Host community is a buzz with Joel's mission to bring back Mystery Science Theater 3,000 for new season. Who wouldn't want see those wise cracking funny man and robots sitting in the front saying what we all wish we could say. I always enjoyed the format of there show. And checking out Joel's kick start campaign last it looked like they were way on their way to the goal amount. This weeks clip will take you all the way to the start of Mystery Science Theater 3,000. Before it was on major nation television stations. It home was on small station called KTMA in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Joel built the Robots and the set over night with things he had laying around. The show premiered on November 24, 1988. The show would run it's course until it would be canceled due to financial restraints at the station. But the show would be picked up by Comedy Central and the rest is history. Which will be looked at another time. Below is the clip of the first show opening intro of the original show. Check out the clip below and be amazed how much the show had evolved once it was national syndicated.

Bonus clip some clips from the original show pilot:

November Netflix Monthly Horror Pick: Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil

This months pick is a funny comedy/ horror movie. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is a movie that is all about misunderstanding and judging a book by its cover. Tucker and Dale are two blue blood Americans that buy a cabin to be their new vacation home in a remote section of the woods. On there
 journey to their vacation home they bump into a bunch of preppy college kids. Who see them as creepy hillbillies. Through out the movie as Dale and Tucker are fixing up their vacation home the college kids keep on bumping into them. As every horror movie goes the college kids starts dying one by one and who to blame of course the hillbillies Tucker and Dale. This movie got mix-ups, random killings, crazy mountain men, and so much more. I enjoy this one, it really made me laugh. Hopefully you will enjoy it to.

Godzilla Turned 61 this week.

In 1954, a radioactive terror would rise from the sea. The terror would leave a trail of destruction through out Japan. All the military's weapons were defenseless against the terror. Even Raymond Burr was defenseless against him. The Terror would gain the name of Godzilla. Godzilla would go on to reign as the King of the Monsters for 61 years now. He had many contenders that tried to dethrone the king but he continues wear the crown. He has been seen as hero, terror, and just hilarious at times. Who knew a man in suit could bring joy to people around the world and help to spawn one of the longest franchises in history. It looks like his legend will continue thanks to TOHO and Legendary continuing to make the movies. Happy Birthday Big G. Looking forward for him to stomp to the theaters again.
