Terror from Beyond the Daves FINAL Horror Host Report!

Greetings, and welcome to the FINAL Horror Host Report featured on “Terror from Beyond the Daves.” Both of us Daves want to thank all the hosts who participated and, of course, everyone who’s faithfully tuned in to read it. It’s been an amazing 2 years but also a lot of work. We will always be grateful for it as it was instrumental in helping us win a Rondo and, even more importantly, forging friendships between us and many of those we featured. While certainly the “labor of love,” both David and I have been pretty busy with other facets of our lives and the hours it takes each week to put a single report together just isn’t there for us anymore. After several weeks of deep discussions, we decided it was time to call it a day. We debated keeping it going through the 1st of the year but, then again, what better finale then the last weekend before Halloween? To save space, our usual practice is to delete our reports after a few weeks but, for novelty’s sake, we will be leaving this one in our archives.

Other than the disappearance of the report, the site will continue going and always remain Horror Host friendly place. There are no plans to stop stalking our childhood horror host, Svengoolie, attending conventions, and partaking in horror host activities. In fact, I’ll be attending THREE of Svengoolie’s four appearances (not bad) this weekend alone. ANYONE who wants to share their pictures and narrative of events that we’re unable to attend are absolutely welcome to submit. Just shoot us a message at terrordaves@ymail.com and we can get that going.

Again, thanks to everyone who assisted us in this weekly post that no blog was ever really designed to support (WordPress, we apologize for all the times we swore at you on Thursday nights).  I guess it would be cliche’ for us to end with “Stay Scary,” so we will simply say, “See you at the next event!”

The Terror Daves

Svengoolie ends his month long tour of appearances with a veritable “Grand Finale!”

Greetings!

This is THE week. The week where mere mortals take on the trappings of various monsters and undead in an effort to satisfy their quest for candy…or sometimes something a bit stronger in liquid form! Yes. this is the week of Halloween!

To help you get into the spirit of things, I bring you another thrilling short film from the warped minds at Bloody Cuts Films. This one is entitled “Dead Man’s Lake” and it is another Halloween treat…just for YOU!  You can watch it in my New Blood Showcase!

My other Halloween treat is still up for it’s final week and I’m talking about our feature film: William Winckler’s “Frankenstein vs. the Creature From Blood Cove.”  You can watch it in The Lab!

The TombKeeper doesn’t normally give out treats….she’s more into tricks.  But she is obviously making an exception this week by bringing you two graphic novels that you won’t want to miss. She starts by reviewing a collection of seasonal scares illustrated in full color by Tom Pomplun entitled “Halloween Classics: Graphic Classics Vol. Twenty Three!”  Then she reviews the new updated version of an original Bram Stoker collection, edited by Tom Pomplun.  This one is called, “Graphic Classics: Bram Stoker: Vol. Seven (Second Edition).”  You’ll find both in The Tomb!

Dita Dirt Nap never fails to please for Halloween and she has another entertaining culty DVD review in Dita’s Den!

And that’s just a sample of Halloween offerings beginning Saturday night at www.countgore.com

ELVIRA, Mistress of the Dark, is excited to announce a new series of Elvira comic books set to debut in 2013.  Working with author R.H. Stavis (“Daniel’s Veil,” Activision’s ” Transformers: War for Cybertron”) and artist Jeff Zarnow (“Godzilla, “68,” “Battle Beasts” ), the stories will focus on the Elvira’s MISS-adventures centered around a backstory about Halloween. The collaboration was teased to audiences at the recent “Stan Lee’s Comikaze” event in September in Los Angeles.   “Unlike a typical licensing deal, we are bringing together the power of the Elvira brand, a top-notch female writer and a rising artist to develop a new line of comic books independently,” says Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. “We will then find a publishing/distribution partner that shares our vision to unleash these stories to the world.”

Not surprisingly, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark has been pretty busy this Halloween Season too with a recent appearance at Knox Berry Farm! Her latest DVD was released late September (click on image below to order) and a new one is on the way!

Well here’s the last report from the Dr….

This weeks show will be filmed at the s.w. libraries zombie homecoming. with video footage shot with classic host, Mr. Mephisto, at the Jerry Smith Pumpkin farm! Its sad news that the Daves are ending the weekly report but I understand the work that goes into it. keeping this going for as long as they did deserves all of our respect. with new hosts popping up all the time one does wonder if its getting a little mundane. I’m not knocking anyone out here but I do get the feeling hosting has become something anyone can do, and although they can, do they do it well??? I guess is doesn’t not matter…

In any case I can only think of the words of My favorite Bozo..( Its nice to be important, but more important to be nice). Thanks again DAVES!!!!  This is sad news out-shined only by  KENOSHA HAVING TRICK OR TREAT ON THE 28th in the day time!!!! UGGGH!!!!

img_4350

FRIDAY OCTOBER 26th – TINEY’S COMICS (516 south 2nd street – Clinton, IA). TRICK OR TREAT TIME!! from 3 to 5 pm. Drop by for free candy, and some special giveaway comics while supplies last. ALSO all comics are 20% off during trick or treat time ! a fun time will be had by all!!

Halloween is here!

Well, almost here.

Time for trick or treat and we have a real treat for you.

This coming weekend, on Movie Madness with Dr. Praxis, we will be featuring the movie, Horror Hotel starring Sir Christopher Lee.

On the recommendation of her professor (Christopher Lee), a young female student (Venetia Stevenson) travels to the fictional Massachusetts town of Whitewood to do
some research into witchcraft. She finds the town occupied by the reincarnation of an infamous witch (Patricia Jessel) burned at the stake in the 17th century; in order
to sustain her immortality, virgins must be sacrificed to her every year – and this year, the student has been the chosen victim.

This film has been compared to Psycho due to structural similarities. Both films begin by establishing an attractive blonde woman as the viewpoint character, leading
the audience to assume she will be the protagonist through the rest of the story. In both films, the blonde travels to a remote location and checks into a hotel or
motel run by an eccentric manager. In both cases, the audience’s expectations are shattered before the midpoint of the story when the blonde is abruptly stabbed to
death. In both films, the blond’s sibling is involved in the search for her; both films include a “shock” scene in which a corpse is revealed, and both films were
released in the same year (1960).

Horror Hotel for your Halloween viewing pleasure.

Plus, homages to two great programs from the past.  See if you can guess what programs…

All this and more will be available from Movie Madness with Dr. Praxis starting this weekend.

Get ready for Halloween and book a room at “Horror Hotel” starring Christoper Lee as shown on wwwmonstermovienight.com starring Bobby Gammonster – Internet Horror Host , Get on your black robes and lets all do some chants at Gargoyle Manor -the monster museum for some real trick or treating!!!

Look for an upcoming appearance of New England’s Hex-cellent Penny Dreadful at New England Comicsin New Bedford, MA!

Both her and the lovable Garou will then return to the same venue to help  judge a costume contest on Halloween Night!

Greetings, friends!

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already THAT TIME… your friends at the MANOR are gearing up for their annual HALLOWEEN SPECIAL…

…but before WE can think about trick-or-treating, we’ve got a bit of a mess to clean up.

Remember when Zelnak sent us on a wild goose chase to the Crystal Rose Gallery (where we encountered the giant god Chuku, among other things)? Our shenanigans DID cause quite a bit of damage, and proprietor Jorge Rodriguez has finally caught up with us… to make up for the disaster we caused, we’ve got to work at the gallery for Halloween… and every exhibit has a story to tell… and every story is presented uncut and uncensored… will any of us make it out at all?

This is OUR Halloween… what about YOURS? We hope you’ll spend a couple of hours with us this weekend… after all, ’tis the season!

Meanwhile, the MANOR salutes KAT HORDERN and COREY JONES on the occasion of their marriage on Friday, October 26th… ceremony to be performed by… YOURS TRULY!

It’s an extra-special Halloween weekend… and it’s all yours at the MANOR!

Friday 10PM Pacific
Saturday 5AM and 10PM Pacific
Monterey cable channel 24 (AMP)
or on-line at www.ampmedia.org
Choose “Programs” and then “Web Stream” for Channel 24!

All the best,
Remo D.

Saturday at 10 pm EST on RTV: Tune in for our Halloween Special – “Attack of The Monsters!”

Boney Bob has taken over the show and he’s showing movies he wants to see! Gamera the Flying Turtle feels the need to protect a couple of annoying kids on an alien planet, and battles Guiron ñ the ginsu-steak knife monster! Will Gamera save the kids and get back to Earth? Tune in and find out!

Monday at 8 pm EST on The Monster Channel <http://www.100ymm.com> : Tune in for “The Devil’s Hand.”

A man is haunted by visions of a hot blond, so he dumps his frumpy brunette girlfriend and joins a Satanic cult… Yeah, who hasn’t had this happen to them? It stars Neil Hamilton who is probably best remembered for playing Commissioner Gordon on the 1960’s Batman TV show.

STAY MAD Fright Fans!!

This week on “Nightmare Cinema (KTV 14), just in time for Halloween, “Encounter With The Unknown” (1973). Three eerie tales based on actual events are enacted in this film. First, three college students play a prank on a geeky classmate. Next, a ghoulish sound emanates from a mist-shrouded hole in the Earth near where a Missouri boy has lost his dog. Third, a senator returning home from a party finds a lost girl on a bridge. Narrated by Rod Serling. We have unearthed a fine seasonal cartoon in “The Headless Horseman” and we will have the appropriately titled chapter four of “The Green Hornet Strikes Again: ‘A Night of Terror,’” along with a handful of vintage TV ads. “Nightmare Cinema”: TV Old School! (Check local listings)

Welcome to The Vortexx, your home away from home for horror hosts, B-movies, and cult flicks! Our movies run 24/7 and the chat room is open at all times. Join us at 9 (ET) Monday-Wednesday and at 10 (ET) Thursday-Saturday for our featured movie(s) and a moderated chat. And be sure to check out this week’s Halloween specials, including an all-day Halloween marathon on Wednesday! Many of our hosts join us in the chat room on the night of their show, so this is your chance to meet the creative and talented folks who make these movies possible. You can find up-to-date information on our Facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/pages/ARTV/138081346258078

Friday (10/26).  DEMENTED DRIVE-IN with Floyd Cadaverous presents THE WEREWOLF OF WASHINGTON  (1973). Starring Biff McGuire as the Nixonian president, Dean Stockwell as his ill-fated speech writer, Clifton James as the attorney general, and Michael Dunn as Dr. Kiss (a not-so-subtle reference to Dr. Henry Kissinger). Released in the midst of the Watergate scandal, this movie was hastily put together and frankly looks it, but these fine actors make the most out of their material and the werewolf make-up is actually pretty cool.

Saturday (10/27). 10:00 P.M. THE LATE DR LADY SHOW presents ASYLUM (1972) starring Peter Cushing, Herbert Lom, Britt Ekland, and Charlotte Rampling.  A young psychiatrist interviews four inmates in a mental asylum and hears four stories of murder, revenge, and the macabre. Written by Robert Bloch and directed by Hammer veteran Roy Ward Baker. Followed at Midnight by Chapter 6 of THE MONSTER AND THE APE on Saturday Night Serials with Mortimer Van Creep.

Monday (10/29). 9:00 P.M.  ALTERNATIVE REALITIES with Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo presents their Halloween special — WHITE ZOMBIE (1932) starring Bela Lugosi. Sure you’ve probably seen it before, but have you ever seen it in 3-D? Well, tonight is your chance! It’s the first zombie movie ever — and still arguably one of the best.

Tuesday (10/30). 9:00 P.M.  BORDELLO OF HORROR with Freakshow and Sin-D Vicious presents their Halloween special — THE GHOST (1963). Not just any ghost, mind you, but the ghost of Dr. Hitchcock of “Horrible Dr. Hitchcock” fame. Starring Barbara Steele as the doctor’s unfaithful wife and directed by Riccardo Freda, who had a great influence on both Mario Bava and Dario Argento. This movie has lots of atmosphere, lots of Babs, and a terrific twist ending, so don’t miss it!

Tuesday (10/30). 11:00 P.M. LENNY’S INFERNO starring MR. MEPHISTO presents THE MONSTER MAKER (1944) starring J. Carrol Naish, Glenn Strange, Ray “Crash” Corrigan, and Ace the Wonder Dog. A mad scientist injects his enemies with acromegaly virus, causing them to become hideously deformed. Albert Glasser, who composed the score for tonight’s movie for a fee of $250, would go on to score a staggering 170 movies between 1944-1962, as well as 300 television shows and 450 radio programs.

Wednesday (10/31). What better place to spend Halloween then at The Vortexx Halloween Marathon! We will be presenting an around-the-clock showing of the George Romero classic, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968), hosted by some of the finest horror hosts in the business, including Dr. Sigmund Zoid and Sluggo from Alternative Realities, Freakshow & Sin-D Vicious from Bordello of Horror, Floyd Cadaverous from Demented Drive-In, Sebastian Hexx & the gang from Frightmare Alley, PumpkinMan from  Fright Night Theater, Dr. David Lady from The Late Dr Lady Show, Riggor & Nyte from Riggor Mortiss Presents, and The Host from Screaming Horror Theater. This one is gonna be special, folks, so don’t miss it!

Thursday (11/1). 10:00 P.M. DEADGAR’S DARK COFFIN CLASSICS with Deadgar Winter, Cap’n Gray Skull, and Countess Kevorkian present ATOM AGE VAMPIRE (1963). A singer (Susanne Loret) is horribly disfigured in a car accident, and a mad scientist (Alberto Lupo) is determined to restore her beauty, regardless of how many women he must kill. For some unexplained reason, the scientist occasionally turns into a horrible reptile-faced creature.

You can find us at http://www.livestream.com/thevortexx and at our new-and-improved website, http://www.horrorhost.net . You can also find us at our sister channels:  http://www.past-tv-network.comhttp://www.madisonhorror.net – and http://www.hocfocprod.com/hfp_free_network

    Gosh guys – I am SO sorry to hear that your weekly Horror Host Report is coming to an end! I only discovered this blog about 6 or 7 months ago, and I try to check it out pretty much every day. But the ONE feature I would never, ever miss was your weekly HHR. As I mentioned before, it was really the only way I could keep up with something that is near and dear to my heart. I’m so very disappointed – but I do understand. It was obviously a major effort each week, and I can’t even begin to imagine how much time and work went into it. But it was and is GREATLY appreciated, and will be sorely missed. Gosh, if I had anywhere near the contacts and the resources that must be available to you, I’d even offer to take it over on your behalf – well, at least until I found out how much work it was!

    Thank you both for what you do here. I will still be coming by most every day to check things out. It’s just that now I’m afraid my Friday mornings will be a bit less fun. But then, who knows what else you guys might cook up? Again, THANK YOU from an avid and most appreciative reader. No one does it better than The Daves…!!!

    Daves,

    The horror host shall never die and in fact thrives thanks to efforts of the individuals behind the fright masks and makeup, the Internet and your (and fandom’s) tireless devotion.

    Thanks for curating all these creeps for as long as you did!
