Having a tagline that goes “The Maddest Story Ever Told”, you’d think it was a film about an insane asylum. And perhaps it actually is. But we call it “The Funnest Horror Film Ever Made” and we’ll be screening it this weekend. With creator Jack Hill’s blessing, no less. Starring Lon Chaney Jr., Carol Ohmart, Sid Haig, Jill Banner, Mantan Moreland and Quinn Redeker; this is a fabulously fun film about a psychotic family living in a creepy house. Sound familiar?
Oh…and we forgot to mention one of the main stars in the list above: Ms. Beverly Washburn. That’s because not only does she have a primary role in Spider Baby but she will also be our special guest for the evening. She’ll tell us how the film was made, how she won the part of Elizabeth and what Lon Chaney and Sid Haig are really like in person.
All this while Tangella casts a canned spell on Handrew, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time at the YouTube link above, 10PM on KOFY TV20 and on-demand at our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels. Don’t miss it!

Wikipedia describes David Skal as an American cultural historian, critic, writer, and on-camera commentator known for his research and analysis of horror films and horror literature. Vincent simply describes him as, “…a very pleasant bloke who knows a good deal more about horror movies than I.” David will join us to chat about the history of horror and how our favorite genre really got its start. He’ll tell us about the many projects he’s been involved with, what it’s like to create the commentary tracks for the video disks for some of the most famous horror films ever made and he’ll tell us the significance of our movie presentation, which happens to be:
“The Ghoul” from 1933, starring Boris Karloff. This film, which was Britain’s answer to the USA’s “The Mummy” revolves around an Egyptologist who thinks that an ancient jewel, which he has managed to possess, will give him the power of rejuvenation before he dies. A classic film served in the style we’ve all come to know and love.
All this while Tangella turns up the heat, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time at the YouTube link above, 10PM on KOFY TV20 and on-demand at our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels. Don’t miss it!
