This weekend on Creature Features:

We’ve always like Russian space movies and maybe you have too. And if you did, you might just really like this one: The Grand Space Journey from 1975. It’s a kid’s movie. But not like a little-kid movie. More like a Soviet sci-fi version of Harry Potter, if you can pardon poorly-structured and off-the-mark analogies. In any case, we have a great copy of this fun movie and if you can handle reading a few subtitles, you’ll like it. And if you understand Russian, you’ll probably love it.

Joining us for this Soviet-era treat will be our old friend, C. Andrew Nelson. You might not recognize his face because it’s usually covered with a Darth Vader mask. When he was with LucasFilm, he appeared as our favorite space villain more times than David Prowse did. He’ll tell us what it’s like simulating bronchitis from inside a heavy costume and share with us some tales from his days working under the iron fist of George himself.

All this while Tangella again dabbles in voodoo, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on an interstellar-sized selection of cosmic television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

For all the things your mama did for you…

…do something special for her: watch last night’s episode of Creature Features with your dear old mother. It features The Monster of Piedras Blancas. And you know your mom loves monsters because you were probably a little one yourself at one time. Creature Features on Mother’s Day – It’s better than the Sunday Breakfast Soufflé at Denny’s and will incite only half of the heartburn.

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!
