Bela Lugosi wasn’t in too many color films. This is one of them. We’ll be showing 1947’s “Scared to Death.” The movie starts with a dead woman. Who was apparently scared to death. The rest of the film flashes back to how she found herself in this unenviable position. Think of it as a post-war episode of Columbo. But instead of Peter Falk, we have Bela Lugosi. And a dwarf.
Joining us for this tall tale with a short person will be the wonderful Rubén Valtierra. Besides being both a fun and funny guy, he also plays keys for Weird Al. He’s also played with a wide variety of other famous groups and we’ll hear some great stories from the road. He’ll also tell us how he was inducted into the world of animation as an actual cartoon character on The Simpsons.

We can’t count the number of requests we’ve had for this movie. People would ask for it without even knowing the title of the film, i.e “Show the one with the doll attacking the woman in her apartment…” And while many might mock TV horror movies from the 1970’s, most people hold “Trilogy of Terror” in very high regard. While the first two tales are worthy of merit, it is the third story “Ameila” that you don’t want to miss. Unless, of course, you have small children watching.
All this while Tangella gets into her usual trouble, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a triple-good selection of threefold-awesome television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
Typically we associate ants with summertime and picnics. But get enough of these little troublemakers together and you have all the ingredients needed for a good horror film. Join us on Saturday as we watch “Ants!” from 1977. This movie came out the same year as Star Wars did and we can pretty much assure you that the former is in no way better than the latter. But Star Wars had no ants, so at least it had that. It also had Robert Foxworth, Lynda Day George, Myrna Loy, Brian Dennehy and Suzanne Somers. A boast that the much-ballyhooed Star Wars is unable to make.
And in our guest chair for this carnival of Formicidae will be the skilled and daring Mark Colp. You might have seen him on the TV shows “Saw Dogs” or “Carver Kings.” He’s one of those guys who can carve anything with a chainsaw. He’ll show us some of his work, talk about his time on those shows and help us ascertain exactly how bad the night’s film just so happens to be.
All this while Tangella attempts to “William Tell” our poor Handrew, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link above, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a colonial selection of mandible-laden television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
