February 2014 Horror Host Report!
Welcome to the February Horror Host Report! As I’m sure many of you can attest, weather-wise it’s been one rough winter. At the time our last report was published who even knew what a “Polar Vortex” was? Truth be told this may not be the most favored time of year for frolicking outside but it is actually tailor-made for snuggling inside and enjoying your favorite monster movies and horror hosted shows! Some of the hosted shows we Daves have been enjoying during winter’s chill is Svengoolie, Zomboo’s House of Horror Movies, Ormon Grimsby, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Elvira’s Midnight Madness collection, and Penny Dreadful’s Shilling Shockers! This month we’ll be digging out many more hosted shows (haven’t decided which ones until we read over this month’s update)! And speaking of said report…let’s get started!
The Daves would like to wish the following hosts a very Happy Birthday during the month of February:
February 16: Karlos Borloff, February 18: The Bone Jangler, February 20: John Stanley
On Saturday February 1st at 9pm Central/10 Eastern it’s Tarantula!
On Saturday February 8th it’s an ALL NEW airing of King Kong vs Godzilla!
On Saturday February 15 it’s another new show with his presentation of She Wolf of London!
On Saturday February 22nd it’s House of Dracula (and in case you’re scratching your head regarding how this fits with the “Hairy” theme, Sven would like to point out that Larry Talbot a.k.a. The Wolf Man is also in this movie)!
Chicagoans who miss the MeTV airings can catch a repeat of the show the following Saturdays at 11am on WCIU Chicago! This weekend will be The Invisible Ray!

As we mentioned before, ZOM-BEE TV has asked Lobo to produce a talk show and supply 5 complete episodes for the channel. Shooting has been rescheduled for February do to an illness in Mr. Lobo’s family. The working title is SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS WITH MR.

From the makers of “Vampira and Me”…
Hi Dave –
VAMPIRA AND ME is a labor of love documentary made by a friend of Maila’s who is also a documentary filmmaker. It’s noteworthy in that it contains two kinescopes of Vampira discovered by the filmmakers which have not been seen anywhere since they first aired 60 years ago.
You can hear a great deal about the making of the film by listening to the tumblr interview director R. H. Greene gave to a fan named Sam Fullerton, available on the vampira and me tumblr site (part one is all the way at the bottom of the current page, and you can scroll up and find the other three segments–it is an hour long and has ben posted in four parts).
You can also pick up Horrible Horrors Special Edition which not only features 5 hours of good/bad movies but lots of cut-ins and appearances from the great Zacherley (Roland) himself!
