This weekend on Creature Features:

Celebrate yuletide cheer with your friends at the Poulter Mansion. We couldn’t secure a guest so close to the holidays, so you’ll just have to contend with our dour faces for 7 segments of mirth and merriment. And what denotes Christmas more than an appropriate film? Certainly not the one we’ll be running. We’ll feature 1920’s “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” We agree. Not a great choice, but it was Tangella’s idea and she’ll be wearing her special new pajamas for the entire broadcast. Saturday night at 10PM PST on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku and FireTV channels and on a mind-numbing network of breathtaking television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

This weekend on Creature Features:

Carnival of Souls. You’ve probably seen this movie before. And we’ve certainly shown it previously. But you should watch it the way it was meant to be seen – with your friends at Creature Features and more importantly, with the star of the film herself, Ms. Candace Hilligoss. That’s right, our guest for the evening will be one of the few remaining cast and crew members from that seminal film. She’ll tell us how she came by the part, what it was like during filming and describe in detail how she almost died during its creation. If you love this film as much as we do, be sure to catch this unique episode. Saturday night at 10PM PST on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku and FireTV channels and on a wonderful network of fabulous television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

This weekend on Creature Features:

Long before Francis Ford Coppola filmed The Godfather movies and Apocalypse Now, he created a rather obscure little horror film in 1963 entitled “Dementia 13.” Not a bad directorial debut for a man who went on to create a laundry list of iconic motion pictures. We’ll be watching that film in the presence of the lovely actress Eliza Roberts. You might remember her from Animal House, the Doctor Who movie, Lois & Clark, Shlock and a number of other productions. She’ll tell us all about her storied acting career and how she has transformed into one of Hollywood’s top casting directors. Saturday night at 10PM PST on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku and FireTV channels and on a complex network of dynamic television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!

Here’s last Saturday’s episode…

…via Vimeo, in case you missed it.

Our friends at home who watch the show over the air by broadcast may not be aware that:

* Our online episodes don’t have the broadcast commercials (other than our short sponsor bumpers).

* They tend to have the full movie and full interview.

* The video and audio quality is far superior to broadcast.

Originally, we were showing the same episodes online as the ones we broadcast, commercials, cuts and all. This was something of a simulcast of our broadcast. A few months ago, we began splitting the episodes during edit. One for broadcast, one for online. The online version is the full episode. The broadcast version has to be cut to fit a 2-hour time slot with room for commercials. Another difference you might notice is quality. Television, particularly those receiving satellite, compress the program mercilessly. That’s how they manage to get 1000 channels through one wire. This makes the program look and sound inferior. Our online versions have only the light compression added by the hosting site. While both YouTube and Vimeo compress the programs, they both look far better than broadcast. Vimeo actually does a much better job and generally our shows look better on that service than they do on YouTube. That’s why we use the Vimeo feed for our Roku and FireTV apps and always make sure we share the Vimeo link after broadcast.

Thank you taking the time to learn more about the broadcast process at Creature Features. We hope this information will enrich your life for years to come.
