This weekend on Creature Features:

We haven’t many swamps in California. That would require a decent amount of precipitation which we have little of as well. Not too many lagoons here either, let alone black ones. However what we lack in swamps and rain, we make up for in beaches and ocean. So while a creature from a lagoon that is black wouldn’t survive long here, likely succumbing to a really bad case of chapped lips, a monster suitably adapted to the state’s arid climate could do rather well. And that’s what we’ll be serving up this weekend:

The Monster of Piedras Blancas.

If you have not yet seen this movie, you might be raising your eyebrows a bit at the title. We understand as we did as well. However, this is a really a nice picture. Beautifully filmed, competently acted and a nice departure from the other low-budget disasters that came out in 1959. We think you’ll like this one. If not, we’re sure you’ll enjoy seeing more of Tangella, Livingston and Handrew as we forgot to book a guest for the evening.

All this while Tangella steals Maurice’s kitchen utensils, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a monstrous selection of seafaring television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

This weekend on Creature Features:

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve shown this one, so here we go again: The Manster from 1959. This is the sad tale of a man who is unwittingly injected with a mad scientist’s concoction that causes him to grow a twin bother off of his right shoulder. We know – weird. But it’s a good movie, has that fifties monster-vibe and also has that Godzilla-movie spirit since it is set in Japan.

Joining us to watch this one will be our friends from the Planet 8 podcast: Bob Johnson and Larry Kakos. They’ll chat us up about this film and others and tell us about some fun events they have coming up for the summer.

All this while Tangella gets in over her head with octopi, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a gruesome selection of monstrous television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

This weekend on Creature Features:

Another cold war/space race film from the 50’s. Only this one stars Dick Miller and Richard Devon and isn’t half bad. “War of the Satellites” from 1958 will be our glorious movie this weekend. The fact that Roger Corman directed it should give you some inkling as to the dedication and craftsmanship that went into building this film.

And joining us from one of the dankest cemeteries in Vallejo, California will be our old friend, The Undertaker. Despite being in a somewhat grim profession, this grave-digging gentleman will bring both mirth and merriment to our film and tell us about upcoming spooky events in which he’ll be appearing.

All this while Tangella goes all Freddy Krueger, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on an orbiting selection of space-age television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
