What do Ed Begley Jr. from “Best in Show” and Patrick McNee from “The Avengers” have in common? Besides both being really swell guys they also starred together in our next feature: “Dead of Night” from 1977.
This is a wonderful TV-movie created by Dan Curtis who was the brainchild of the fabulous “Trilogy of Terror” movie. You remember that one – with the doll that comes to life and chases some poor woman around her flat as it slashes at her ankles with a steak knife. Written by the world-famous Richard Matheson, this is a fun film comprised of three stories with the penultimate tale being “Bobby” about some poor dead kid burdened with having to contend with the afterlife following his mother’s dabbling in black magic.
Joining us to watch this fantastic movie will be Joe The Bomb-Builder. We’re not entirely sure what exactly is the background on this guy. But Tangella personally invited him so it should be somewhat rather interesting.
All this while Tangella discovers the joy of skateboarding, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a demonic selection of explosive television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
If you were to spend any amount of time at the Poulter Mansion, you’d soon learn that when Tangella arrives home from an errand with a soiled frock, it is more than likely that there is now yet another disentombed body part in the household and dirt scattered about the floor of the foyer. This is traditionally followed by a telephone call from a perturbed groundskeeper at one of the many cemeteries in the area followed by a bench warrant hastily issued from the local magistrate.
But not this weekend. For we’ll be joined by the wonderful Constance Smith, a graveyard docent from the nearby city of Santa Rosa who will enlighten us, and particularly Tangella, about the appropriate manner in which to visit a cemetery and pay proper respect to its quiet denizens. She’ll also tell us about the tours she conducts at the world-famous Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay, telling us stories about the many escapes that actually happened on The Rock.
Between chatting about prisoner merrymaking we’ll enjoy a film about criminal hijacking, namely “The Hitch-Hiker” from 1953. While not the typical horror film we customarily put forward, this thriller is a tale about two poor men who come across the wrong fellow with his thumb out. Loosely based on the true story of the Billy Cook murder spree, this classic film-noir gem will be a welcome departure from our usual servings of bug-eyed monsters.

Coming July 3rd, 2021: The wonderful Candace Hilligoss from “Carnival of Souls” returns to the Poulter Mansion to watch another one of her famous horror movies, namely “The Curse of The Living Corpse” from 1964. Don’t miss it!
Vince often refers to that large contingency of viewers who understandably fall asleep during our broadcast as “dozers.” Little does he know that this is the short-form version of the word “bulldozer.” The fact that this term has evaded him is particularly curious given that he actually owns one of these pieces of heavy-equipment as part of the arsenal of vehicles used to keep the Poulter Mansion Estate in order.
But were this useful soil-moving tool of Vince’s to become possessed by an alien force or, God forbid, driven by Tangella; it would then become something called a Killdozer, which happens to be the title of our next feature.
Starring Clint Walker, Robert Urich and Carl Betz, “Killdozer!” was one of many films that graced the small screen in the 70’s who’s title included an exclamation mark to clarify that it was a movie name and not simply a single-word statement. It’s based on a 1944 novella by Theodore Stugeon that revolves around an alien who decides to possess a bulldozer and inadvertently goes postal on the poor men trying to build an airstrip on a remote island. We have no doubt the book was better. That said, it’s still a fun movie and we think you’ll enjoy it immensely.
