Butter up the popcorn for this weekend’s flick, namely 1932’s “White Zombie” with Bela Lugosi and a whole slew of other monochromatic actors. It’s not Dracula, but it has that look and feel. And the zombies aren’t very scary either, but neither is Seinfeld airing 18 channels below us. Joining us to analyze the film and avoid angering Tangella and her Nunchakus will be illustrator and toymaker, Ryan Snapp. He’s published some impressive children’s books but he’ll blow your mind with his bootleg action figure creations. You’ll want to check them out. Saturday night at 10PM PST on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku and FireTV channels and a magnificent selection of outstanding television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

What does one acquire when one crosses a Wild West outlaw with the only living descendent of the world’s most diabolical scientist?
L: I imagine a low-budget 1966 film that was produced in 8 days.
V: You mean you’ve already seen Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter?
L: Of course I have. As did you, when we ran it two years ago.
V: Funny. I don’t recall this this particular film…
<Tangella whispers to Vince>
V: You don’t say? Tangella informs me that besides surveying this film on this very programme on September 9th, 2017 I also viewed it on Amazon Prime in 2016, on Hulu in 2015, on HBO in 2012, and saw half of it at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood boulevard in 2010. Why only half that time?
<Tangella whispers to Vince>
V: Ah, yes. I do indeed recall that evening. This was the night that Tangella decided she’d seen enough of the film and proceeded to remove all of the flush valves from the urinals in the gentlemen’s lavatory on the mezzanine of that particular playhouse. Needless to say, chaos ensued and I was motivated to forgo the remainder of the film. But enough about the movie. Welcome to Creature Features! You’ve previously met my stalwart butler, Mr. Livingston. You’ve likely bared witness to the bundle of chaos we call Tangella. And you most certainly recall yours truly, Vincent Van Dahl, far better than I remember tonight’s film. But let us instead chat about tonight’s guest, because we have yet another Star Trek alumni-member joining us to watch tonight’s film. For we are both pleased and honored to welcome Michael Aron to the show. You might remember Michael from when he portrayed a young Jack London on the next generation episode “Times Arrow.” This is the one where Commander Data loses his head. Literally. Michael will tell us what it was like working in Hollywood with an android, why Lieutenant Worf is always in such a foul mood and he’ll also enlighten us as to whether the young Wesley Crusher is just as irritating off-screen as he was on. So don’t go away! Because it’s going to be another night of Star Trek western fright, right here on Creature Features!
