We’ve been receiving requests for this movie for some time. Admittedly, we were confused because we thought it was only a short-lived TV series, which it was, but there was also a movie and sequel created long before the series. Our bad. In any case, we’ll be kicking-off the Christmas season this weekend by showing “The Night Stalker” from 1972. Starring Darren McGavin, Carol Lynley, Simon Oakland, Claude Akins and an entire town full of Hollywood faces you’ll certainly remember. Many of you have likely seen this one. But some of you, like us, have not.
Joining us to watch this trip down memory lane will be our old friend and former show host, John Stanley. He knows everything there is to know about this movie and more. He’ll give us some insights into some of the people both behind and in front of the camera and he’ll show us his new book “The Career that Dripped Blood.”

It will be a night of “the birds and the bees” when we broadcast our show from our home in Bodega Bay about some killer bees. But there will be no love and childbearing lessons because we shall instead serve a film from 1976 called “The Savage Bees.” While many of you won’t remember this one, it was one of the first films (that we can ascertain) which covered the rather-new topic at that time of Africanized or “killer” bees. And you can imagine this one put off quite a few Independence Day picnickers simply trying to enjoy the country’s bicentennial. Starring Michael Parks, Paul Hecht and Gretchen Corbett, this a fun film which, unlike most of the movies we show here, takes place primarily outside on sunny days. A bit of a departure from the “dark and stormy night” slop we typically serve.
Joining us, somewhat reluctantly, to watch this buzzingly good film will be our old friend and neighbor, actor Jon Provost. He’s the one that played Timmy on Lassie when he was a kid. He also did a bunch of other cool movies and television appearances, but no one ever wants to talk about that. They just want to know the story about how he was dumb enough to fall into a well.

Hollywood of the 1970s seemed obsessed with two topics: satan and animals on the attack. Our film this weekend covers both: “Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell” from 1978. Yet another film where the wonderful German Shepherd breed gets an undeserved bad rap and the satanists aren’t made to look very good either. There’s some familiar faces in this one – you’ll recognize Richard Crenna before he became Rambo’s commander. You’ll also spot a young Kim Richards after she left Nanny and The Professor but before she became a Beverly Hills socialite who punches out cops after she’s had a few too many.
Joining us to watch this devilish dog-film will be our old friend, comic artist Tom Beland. He’ll have a lot to say about the film. Most of it will be hilarious.

“The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini” from 1966. We probably should have saved this one for summer instead of rainy November, but most of it takes place indoors, so it’s probably OK. Originally titled “The Girl in the Glass Bikini” and slated to star Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, this film soon morphed into “Pajama Party in a Haunted House” until it was renamed to its final title. We’d have to say the two biggest stars in this one are Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone, but they didn’t receive much prominence on the credits compared to Tommy Kirk, Deborah Walley, Nancy Sinatra and Aron Kincaid. Even Susan Hart, who plays the titular ghost doesn’t get much love in the credits. In any case, it’s a fun film we think you’ll like and it won’t frighten even the smallest kids. But don’t force your teenagers to watch it because they’ll think it’s stupid.
No guest scheduled, so you can expect the usual slop we serve on those shows where we have no company.

Last week we presented “The Creeping Flesh” – an absolutely wonderful film for which we are still receiving accolades. This week we are showing “The Creeping Terror.” Instead of compliments, we expect to to receive hate-mail laced with cursing. But that’s ok…you have to show a few duds to make the good movies look even better. And as far as bad movies go, this one is good. It’s really bad, so if you like bad movies you’ll find it to be really good. Or something like that.
Joining us to watch this cinematic train-wreck will be our old friend, Lance Ozanix. Front man for the band Skitzo, though he’s actually better known for his frequent appearances on the Jerry Springer Show and on Judge Judy. We’ll explain why when we get there.
