The March 2014 Horror Host Report!
As this horrendous winter from Hell winds its way down (or so we tell ourselves) we not only look forward to better weather but also some horror host appearances! Since Terror Dave Fuentes is an unapologetic Svengoolie stalker that alone makes him happy but, best of all, he’ll be joined by Terror Dave Albaugh at his next appearance! The last time we Terror Daves (one from Chicago & the other Rhode Island) communed was the Fall of 2012 and it’s been long overdue. There’s also another Horror Host gathering at The Horrorhound Weekend in Cincinnati complete with another round of Horror Host Hall of Fame inductees. You can read more about that event down in our “Horror Host News” section!
The Daves would like to wish the following hosts a very Happy Birthday during the month of March:
March 12: Svengoolie (Rich Koz), March 19: Bill Bowman, March 20: Count Gore de Vol (Dick Dyszel), March 31st: Justin Thomas Ord
As mentioned in the intro, national commercial TV host, Svengoolie, will be making his first 2014 public appearance THIS month at Brookfield Zoo! He’ll be assisting my AAZK (American Association of Zookeepers) Chapter’s “Vital Grounds Spaghetti Dinner!” Vital Grounds is an amazing organization that buys land for sale out west and converts it back to its natural state so that bears, wolves, and other wildlife can travel without passing through human settlements.
If you’d like to see Svengoolie, enjoy a nice spaghetti dinner, and support a great cause, please go HERE to order your tickets! If you show up that evening you will NOT have to pay to get into the zoo itself nor parking fees. It’s $9 for adults and $4 children 5-12 (under 5 are FREE).
MeTV is available in over 90% of the US so check your local cable provider to make sure you don’t miss out on Svengoolie!This month’s theme is “March Badness! Special thanks to Morbo Kif for these Sven-sational posters! You can check out their fun photos HERE!

I also invite you to enter my current movie trivia contest in The Game Room.
If you find that your cell phone has become a permanent attachment to your hand, you MUST watch the short film, “Cam Closer” by David Sandberg in my New Blood Showcase beginning March 8.
On this show Stefanie Von Guest reviews the Anime “Crimson Climax” in The Loft plus the usual mix of new book and movie reviews along with a list of upcoming horror conventions in The Parlor.
Faces become very important on the 15th. After seeing the success of the SyFy show, “Face Off” I’ve decided to show the classic film, “The Face At The Window” in The Lab and add a few of my own.
In The Screaming Room, Lady Pam De Graff tells you all about another overlooked DVD release.
Dita Dirt Nap is always entertaining with her unique movie reviews in Dita’s Den and for the best suggestions in horror literature, you can’t beat the TombKeeper and her reviews in The Tomb!
On March 22nd, budding film makers and those who’ve dreamt of making a horror movie just have to watch this week’s featured short film from DC Dogs entitled “Implement of Death.” You’ll die laughing in my New Blood Showcase.
“Mission of Darkness” is the Anime reviewed by Stefanie Von Guest in The Loft to compliment the other book and movie reviews updated on this show.
We end the month on March 29th celebrating the arrival of Spring with an orgy! OK, it’s not a real orgy, but the film “Vampire’s Night Orgy,” which you can watch naked if you want in The Lab!
When you put your clothes back on, head to The Tomb for some book reviews, The Game Room for a NEW movie trivia contest and the dozens of other scary places within Castle De Vol and remember it changes every Saturday night at countgore.com.
Also, a quick reminder that Count Gore De Vol will be a guest at AwesomeCon, April 19 & 20 at the DC Convention Center. The guest list is truly awesome, including, Billie Piper, Steve Niles, Kevin Sorbo, JewelStaite, J. August Richards and too many others to mention. You can get more details HERE!
From Wolfman Mac:
Hi Daves!This werewolf is set to howl again this year, as TWO different werewolves in two different productions!
1. Wolfman Mac and Boney Bob, of course. and 2. as Jack (not Wolfman Jack, just Jack), the Scottish red headed, cocky, sloppy cousin of Wolfman Mac!
As an actor, I’m really going to enjoy playing this character, he’s very much my opposite.
Unlike before, there are two different production companies doing all the work, contracts, sales, legal stuff, casting, merchandising, distribution, etc… My only job will be to smile for the camera, the end. This will save me an enormous amount of stress. More news coming soon!!!

Speaking of which… the Great Detective just might have the answer to the questions that have been on our mind for weeks… just who is Ms. Atoz? What does she want with us? Who hired her? And does she really expect us to not be familiar with storylines ripped straight out of DARK SHADOWS?
Good grief… anyway, it’s all yours at the MANOR!

Hello from Gunther Dedmund, WRCT in York, PA asked me to so some promo spots for their horror host marathon. The newly produced spots have been approved and will become active in the next several weeks. They also have a new service where you can watch the entire horror host programming slot online with many other hosts from around the country, it begins at 10pm on Fridays on channel 18 schedule here for the line up: I’m also creating a series of promo spots for CATS public channel in Bloomington, IN. So, look for those.
The 2nd issue of the BSOH Comic Book is coming along nicely and production on the BSOH magazine is really getting interesting. Here’s the first layout rough of the cover, the magazine is a behind the scenes look at BSOH and while it does feature articles on horror hosts, it isn’t a horror host magazine. Look for these to be published sometime later this year.
Our spin off show “Junkyard & The Rabbit” is now showing on the Bloomington, IN CATS channel. They requested more episodes, so we’ve just started production on the second season. It shows at 8pm on Tuesdays.
Thanks for watching my show…
The Daughter of the Ghoul will be attending Horrorhound Weekend in Cincinnati!
Penny Dreadful will be appearing at Horrorhound Weekend in Cincinnati
