My Grandfather ...

My grandfather passed away in his sleep yesterday. He was 98 years old. It's hurting me more than I thought it would. No more than seven months ago we all ventured into the middle of Nowhere, Mexico to bury my grandmother and that hurt a lot. And now we all have to do it all over again.

My parents don't really have the $$$ for me to go to the funeral and Wood knows my wife and I are broke. So my wife is on a "work" trip in the Bay area trying to hustle up some cash. That means that the day after I learn that my grandfather's dead I'm all alone in this house with two loud, angry, post-Christmas hyper children.

It's lonely and sad and painful being here all alone. But my wife is doing this for us and for that I am grateful for that. I really am. It shows that she cares for me very much. I've been worried lately that my manic, pill-crazed craziness is grating on her but she must really love me to be doing this for me, right?

I just wish that I could have someone here in the house with me who cared, someone who doesn't still scream and cry and pee their panties all the time, you know?

Since she took the computer with her to work, I'm posting on my blog using our new Nintendo Wii. If that isn't pathetic then I don't know what is.

Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week, Part 2 ...

Arch Hall Jr. gets his due in today's second part. It's two movies of his that no one asked for ...

Yoinked from aintitcool and wikipedia ...

"The Sadist (US release date April 1963) is a 1963 black and white exploitation film written and directed by James Landis. It stars Arch Hall, Jr., son of exploitation impressario, writer, producer, and director Arch Hall, Sr. It’s said The Sadist is “an early progenitor of The Hills Have Eyes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”.[1] This 95 minute horror/thriller contains excellent cinematography, despite being low budget film. The film was distributed by Fairway International Pictures of the United States and Prima Film of Canada.[2] The film is also known as Profile of Terror and Sweet Baby Charlie.

The character of Charlie is loosely based on the life of Charles Raymond Starkweather (November 24, 1938 – June 25, 1959) who murdered eleven people in Nebraska and Wyoming during a two-month road trip in 1958 with his teenage girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate. Thusly, The Sadist may very well be the very first 'Folks break down en route to something and run afoul of a psychotic killer' movie ever made.

Arch Hall, Jr. does a pretty effective job here as the title sadist. He sure isn’t underplaying the lead role of Charlie Tibbs, a psychotic murderer, but this isn't your run of the mill exploitation flick. In fact, the film is quite brutal and shockingly modern in its approach to storytelling. Three high school teachers, Ed, Doris, and Carl (the protagonists) are driving through rural Southern California on their way to a Dodgers game in Los Angeles. The group’s Chevrolet Belair has some trouble and they are forced to pull off to a gas station/junkyard on the side of the road. Doris and Carl search the junkyard looking for the owner, but they cannot find him. Right about now is when our antagonists Charlie Tibbs and his girlfriend Judy show up.

Not only is it one of the few film to take place in real time but it’s also shot by William Zsigmond, a pseudonym for Vilmos Zsigmond, the legendary cinematographer who has gone on to film such movies as Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and Deliverance.

The film star Arch Hall, Jr., an American actor, musician, aviator and author who began his career as a teen actor and musician, appearing in a number of 1960s films that were all produced by his father, Arch Hall, Sr. The senior Arch even got in front of the camera, playing author Robert I. Miller in Eegah. Most of Hall Jr.'s films featured his particular musical abilities, a teenager's tenor voice and guitar riffs played with swamp blues inflection. Hall was also the frontman for the rock n' roll combo Arch Hall, Jr. and the Archers.

For the most part, the films produced by the Halls and their associates, which at one point included cult director Ray Dennis Steckler, are considered B-movies. Hall's roles ranged from dunebuggy-driving teenager to a rock n' roll singing spy in a white dinner jacket. It is perhaps Hall's second movie, Eegah (1962), which has won him the most recognition, due in part to the television show Mystery Science Theater 3000 featuring the movie in a 1993 episode."

Eegah! (also known as Eegah! The Name Written in Blood) is a 1962 horror film starring Arch Hall, Jr., Arch Hall, Sr., Marilyn Manning and Richard Kiel in the titular role. The film's notoriety was enhanced as a result of being featured on episodes of Canned Film Festival and Mystery Science Theater 3000, and was one of the films listed in Michael Medved's book The Fifty Worst Films of All Time.

Following the financial success of his first venture into the drive-in/juvenile delinquency genre, The Choppers, Arch Hall Sr. was able to fund Eegah!, a starring vehicle for his son, Arch Hall Jr., who had some success with songwriter Alan O'Day on the rock and roll/blues scene in Los Angeles. Hall, Sr. both co-wrote the film with Bob Wehling, directed the picture under the pseudonym Nicholas Merriweather, and co-starred opposite his son under the name William Watters. Looking to Sr. looked to create an Elvis Presley-style screen persona for his son, and made sure that Eegah! was peppered with various rock and roll songs, most notably the numbers 'Vicky' and 'Valerie'. The film attempts elements of traditional schlock-horror and youth-comedy genres. It also contains echoes of the 1960s 'beach party' genre.

One of the film's more inept moments became a running joke on the show: Hall, Sr.'s line 'Watch out for snakes!' is blurted out randomly in a deep baratone, despite any visual source for the dialog. The line became a running gag, both on other episodes of the show and in a limited fashion as a pop-culture meme, appearing on The Office and as the closing line of The Rick Emerson Show. In the published episode guide to the series, The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, the cast considers the shaving scene in which Eegah lolls his tongue around and laps up shaving cream to be one of the most disgusting things they've witnessed during their time on the show. The writers also speculate that some kind of romantic relationship existed between Arch Hall, Sr. and his on-screen daughter Marilyn Manning, due to the uncomfortably non-familial chemistry in their scenes together."

That brings us to today's cinematic fork in the road, ladies and gentlemen ...

Today, in part two, a first for this blog. YOU the viewer gets a choice in what you get to view! Yes, YOU are the boss today in our second feature.

See, I WAS going to watch The Sadist today as part 2. But my kids aren't going to church today so they're going to be around jackin' my style, so perhaps Arch Hall as a sadistic torture killer shouldn't be playing around them, right?

So then I was going to watch Eegah, but I wanted to do something different, something other than the same MST3K episode I've watched a bajillion times. I mean, don't get me wrong, I LO-O-O-OVE that episode. I really do. One of my favorites. But with this Church-less MOTW thingy I want to do something different.

So that brings us full circle to your choice today ...

You either click here and can watch The Sadist now ...

OR you can stick around and watch this episode of Cinema Insomnia that I boosted off my main man Mr. Lobo's awesome ass webpage.

But BE WARNED ... this episode of C.I. comes RIFF-FREE, meaning that despite a few commercial break jabs at the movie, when the feature rolls there will be nothing around to distract you from the hideousness that is Eegah.

Enjoy ...

Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

Yoinked from Wikipedia, imdb and ...

"The Screaming Skull is a 1958 American horror film directed by Alex Nicol. It is best known for beginning with a spooky voiceover which explains that the film you are about to watch is so frightening that it may actually KILL members of the audience, and that American International Pictures is prepared to pay for any burial services and funeral costs. During the voiceover, the camera pans inside an empty casket containing a note that reads 'Reserved for you'. It is a very cheesy beginning to an entertaining, Hitchcock-ian film.

The Screaming Skull was originally released as the top half of a double feature with Terror from the Year 5000. Also, ahough it is never credited, the film is based on Francis Marion Crawford's classic horror story of the same title, first published around 1906.

Interestingly, Crawford's inspiration for the tale, in turn, came from the folklore surrounding the so-called 'screaming skull' that was kept on display at Bettiscomb Manor in Dorset, England. The actual skull that inspired both the story and the movie is said to be that of a black slave whose request for burial in his native country was denied following his death and was subsequently followed by strange occurrences and unexplainable shrieking noises that emanated from the wooden box in which the skull was kept.

For reasons best known to local TV programmers, the modest shocker The Screaming Skull was telecast on what seemed to be a daily basis in the 1960s. The hero or villain is Eric (played by John Hudson, who later billed himself as William Hudson), the husband of neurotic millionairess Jenni Peggy Webber. Who is out to get Jenny's inheritance? Is it the creepy gardener? Is it Eric the husband? Or is Jenny just batshit crazy? Stay tuned to find out ..."

The Screaming Skull: Main Theme

"What stops the shortcomings of script and direction from ruining The Screaming Skull completely is the cast, which is much better than this movie really deserves. There are no standout performances, exactly, but all of the actors make their characters seem enough like real people to give the film some kind of foundation with which to support the heavy weight of crap pressing down on it from above. The cast can’t make The Screaming Skull into anything worth getting excited about, but they do at least keep it on its feet for the most part."

Christmas Eve BONUS Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

As a special treat this Christmas season, we present to you one of the creepiest movies ever ...

Yoinked from Wikipedia and ...

"The Manster is a 1959 horror film, a coproduction between the US and Japan, starring Peter Dyneley. The film was notable for its creative use of special effects. The film is also known as Doktor Satan, The Two-Headed Monster (双頭の殺人鬼) and The Split. Manster is a favorite among campy horror aficionados and for good reason as it is both unintentionally funny and genuinely creepy. A 'Manster' is half-man, half-monster. To accommodate this set-up, the title character has two heads. Back in his single-domed days, the Manster was an American reporter (Peter Dyneley) assigned to interview a Tokyo-based scientist (Satoshi Nakamura). Alas, the scientist was off his rocker, and while experimenting with mutations, he turned the reporter into a double-header."

Music from The Manster

"Though filmed in Japan, The Manster was based on a script by British producer George Breakston, and acted (if that is the word) entirely in English. Sam Raimi's 'ARMY OF DARKNESS' pays homage to this film. When Ash has swallowed one of his little dopplegangers, he then grows an eye on his right shoulder, which results in him splitting into two beings; Good Ash and Evil Ash."

It's a good, fun, creepy ass film with a few good special effects and a shitload of bad ones. Good times.

Wow, we've been doing the whole Church-less Movie Of The Week thing for over a year! How awesome is that? Happy birthday to us!

Enjoy the show, y'all!

Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

Ladies and gentlemen, today we present to you the worst movie of all time ...

Yoinked from Entertainment Weekly and Wikipedia but with my own extensive bad movie knowledge ...

"Manos: The Hands of Fate is a campy 1966 American horror film written, directed, and produced by Harold P. Warren. It is widely recognized to be one of the worst films ever made. In 1993, television comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), a show based on the premise of mocking B movies, featured Manos: The Hands of Fate, giving the film cult status.

The plot of the film revolves primarily around a vacationing family who lose their way on a road trip. After a long drive in the Texas desert, the family is trapped at a lodge maintained by a polygamous pagan cult, and they attempt to escape as the cult's members decide what to do with them. The film is technically deficient with significant editing flaws; its soundtrack and visuals are not synchronized, and several scenes are inexplicable or unconnected to the overall plot.

Leave it to a fertilizer salesman to make the crappiest film in history. Harold P. Warren (Hal to friends and family) may have sold manure for a living, but he dreamt of leaving a different sort of imprint in the soil. Warren was active in the local El Paso theater scene, wrote books and plays, and was constantly seeking new adventures. (Once, after watching his children Wendy and Joe play with LEGOs in the basement, the aspiring inventor came up with the idea of creating giant cement LEGOs to use for building real houses. He called them Superblocks. Okay, not exactly Edison material, but still. . .)

But it was during a meeting with Oscar-winning screenwriter Stirling Silliphant at a Texas coffee shop that Manos was born. Warren had previously met Silliphant while filming a walk-on as a bus driver in an episode of the TV show Route 66. During the conversation, Warren boasted that making a movie wasn't so hard. Anybody could make a movie. Heck, even he could make one. Warren bet Silliphant that he could take a film all the way from conception to completion. Tellingly, the first outline for his master script was written right then and there on napkins. The story was standard B-grade horror — family (husband Michael, wife Margaret, and daughter Debbie) gets lost en route to a vacation and stumbles upon a horrifying fate. Less standard, however, was a half-man, half-goat character named Torgo, or the mysterious cult leader known simply as the Master who walked around sporting a robe with giant red hands on it. Perhaps the film's first sign of ineptitude was the title itself, Manos: The Hands of Fate, which translates a tad redundantly to Hands: The Hands of Fate.

After raising $19,000 from neighbors and friends, Warren went about assembling his dream cast. He started with. . . himself. In addition to writing, directing, and producing, Hal would also play the husband. The rest of the cast came mostly from either local theater (including Tom Neyman as the Master and John Reynolds as satyr Torgo) or the Mannequin Manor modeling school (from which Warren plucked women to play the Master's multiple wives who would spend the majority of their screen time catfighting in oversize girdles.

Under the working title The Lodge of Sins, the movie was filmed in mid 1966. Filming mainly took place on the ranch of Colbert Coldwell, a former judge of El Paso County. Most of the equipment used for production was rented, therefore Warren had to rush through as many shots as possible to complete filming before the deadline for returning the equipment. Footage was shot with a 16 mm Bell & Howell camera which had to be wound by hand and filmed for only 32 seconds. This has been suggested as a possible explanation for the many editing problems present in the final cut. The Bell & Howell camera was incapable of double-system recording, and thus all sound effects and dialogue were dubbed later in post-production, reportedly by only three or four people including Warren.

To portray his character Torgo as a satyr, John Reynolds constructed what is described as a metallic rigging worn under his trousers. The effect conveyed by his work was to leave his character with oversized knees and difficulty in walking. Fake cloven hooves may have been made by Reynolds for his costume, but they were not worn during filming, as he is clearly shown wearing boots in several scenes, which can even be seen in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version which superimposes the silhouettes of theater seats and three of the show's characters over the bottom of all the films they feature. Seemingly operating in his own special universe, Reynolds bumbled, stumbled, and very slowly convulsed his way throughout Manos, with an awkwardness that for viewers is equally engaging and enraging. 'When you watch the film,' says Jackey Neyman (now Jones), who played Hal's on-screen daughter, Debbie, 'you gotta figure he was stoned the whole time.' On Oct. 16, a few months after production ended, the troubled thespian/shipping clerk, the son of a military officer at nearby Fort Bliss, put a gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. He was only 25.

The film premiered at the Capri Theater in Warren's hometown of El Paso, Texas on November 15, 1966. Warren arranged for a searchlight to be used at the cinema, and for the cast to be brought to the premiere by a limousine, in order to enhance the Hollywood feel of the event. Warren could afford only a single limousine, however, and so the driver had to drop off one group, then drive around the block and pick up another. The premiere was attended by numerous local dignitaries, including the mayor and local sheriff. But soon after the film started, the crowd in attendancxe started giggling quietly, then laughing loudly, at the film. Perhaps the crowd had never witnessed entire scenes out of focus before. Perhaps they had never seen such things as a marking slate or an insect bumping into the camera lens actually make a final cut. Or perhaps they were trying to figure out why every single voice in the movie was dubbed — badly. Since the camera used for Manos could not capture sound, all the dialogue was recorded in a studio by Warren, his wife, Neyman, and Diane Mahree, as well as two others who did all of the other voices.

Humiliated, Warren and the rest of his cast made a hasty exit. The film ended with a mixture of laughter and applause. The following day, a review of film was featured in the El Paso Herald-Post, which described the film as a 'brave experiment', although it criticized some elements such as the attempted murder of Torgo by being 'massaged to death' by The Master's wives, and Margaret's claim of 'It's getting dark', while she stands in front of a glowing sun. Following the premiere, Warren claimed that he felt Manos was the worst film ever made even though he was proud of it, and he suggested that it might make a passable comedy if it were to be redubbed. The film was briefly distributed by the Emerson Releasing Corporation. Following its debut, the film had a brief theatrical run at the Capri Theater, as well as a few screenings at various drive-in theaters in West Texas and New Mexico towns, including Las Cruces. Reports that the only crew members who were compensated for their work in the film were Jackey Neyman and her family's dog, who received a bicycle and a large quantity of dog food, respectively, would seem to indicate that the film failed to break even financially. Official box office figures for the film are unknown, if indeed they ever existed. Although the film received poor reception, Warren did win his bet against Stirling Silliphant, proving that he was capable of creating an entire film on his own."

"The majority of the cast and crew never appeared in another movie after Manos. Harold P. Warren attempted to pitch another script he had written called Wild Desert Bikers, but with the failure of Manos, no one he approached showed any interest in producing it. Attempts to turn the screenplay into a novel were equally unsuccessful. But more than 25 years later, writers for a Minneapolis-based television show called Mystery Science Theater 3000 were sifting through a box of tapes sent from Comedy Central headquarters in New York City. 'We started watching it, and had never seen anything like that,' says Mike Nelson, head writer at the time. 'We kept saying to ourselves, There is no way we can do this movie, it is just too bizarre. But we finally decided, No, we must bring this to the world.' On January 30, 1993, Manos was not only back from the dead but playing to a nationwide TV audience. A new generation of fans — okay, a first generation of fans — was born.

The book Hollywood's Most Wanted lists Manos as the #2 in the list of The Worst Movies Ever Made, closely following Plan 9 from Outer Space. However, the June 10, 2005 issue of Entertainment Weekly contained an in-depth article which officially proclaimed Manos 'The Worst Movie Ever Made.' The scene in which Debbie is dressed as one of the Master's wives has also attracted the attention of observers due to the implications of pedophilia. The crew of Mystery Science Theater 3000 later included the scene in a list of the most disgusting things they had seen.

Two comedy stage adaptations of the film have been made. The first, by Last Rites Productions, was given in Portland, Oregon in early 2006. The second, a musical titled Manos: Rock Opera of Fate by the New Millennium Theatre Company, was launched in Chicago in October 2007. In March 2008, the 'Ten Sessions' episode of How I Met Your Mother featured the main character arguing Manos to be the worst movie ever made even when compared to Plan 9 from Outer Space. The show featured a brief discussion of the film, and an ultra-condensed twelve-second screening of the film as part of a two-minute date."

EO, Throat, And A Cancellation ...

Guess what's coming back to Disneyland this February?

"Back in 1986, everybody wanted a piece of the hottest pop star in the world. So it was with much fanfare that Disneyland introduced 'Captain EO,' starring Michael Jackson. The 17-minute 'Captain EO' cost an estimated $30 million and featured a star-studded list of credits, including executive producer George Lucas, director Francis Ford Coppola and Anjelica Huston as the evil Supreme Leader. EO used music — specifically the original Jackson song 'We Are Here to Change the World' — to defeat the queen and her whip-wielding henchmen. Captain EO opened in Disneyland’s Magic Eye Theater in 1986 and ran for more than a decade, quietly closing in 1997."

-L.A. Times


On the outside I don't give a rat's ass about a crazed, idiotic, vain, pedophile manchild and his death and sudden idolization after death despite being predominantly HATED BY ALL mere seconds before his death.

But the kid in me? I'm totally geeking my brown ass out over this.

Jesus, my damn throat hurts like hell. I may be getting sick again. Or I just might be losing my voice from the dangerous, crazy ass storytime I did today. Did my semi-controversial Christmas storytime jeopardize my current job standing? I don't think so. Who knows. All I know is that my throat hurts like a mother.

By the way, tomorrow morning's Church-less Movie of the Week will NOT be seen. It's the yearly X-mas service at my daughter's church. The girls are doing a play. Emerald has a big part. Bela has lines. It's going to be super sweet.

This play is going to ge good, too. It's going to be so good that Jesus is gonna be all like "Holy shit, man, that shit's fucking awesome as ass, nigga, that's fucking sweet, bitch! Thanks!" and Bela will give a nod and be all like cool and shit. Totally truth, man, it'll be pretty fucking bitchin' how much worship we'll be throwing up His way. Jesus will cream his robe at how much the fucking Galindo family'll be fucking worshiping his long haired hippie fucking ass.

Anyway, I'll try to post a make-up movie later this week, maybe X-mas Eve, so be sure to check back.
