Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to Marty Krofft.   Marty Krofft was born on April 9, 1937.  Marty and his brother Sid are responsible for some of my greatest memories as a kid.  The Kroffts produced such classics as Banana Splits, H.R. Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Land of the Lost and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.  My Saturday mornings were mainly spent in front of the television watching these shows.  Happy Birthday Marty!!

 

 

 

Cinema Wasteland Spring 2012!

Another Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo has come and gone and it was not a disappointment.  The Trio and I had a great time hob knobbing with the creep loving public.  As always, I spent way too much money on things that I don’t need but have to have.    I mean who doesn’t need a bar of soap in the shape of Michael Myers head?  I know I need it.  The wonderful ladies at Spellboundsoapworks.com have a wide variety of interesting soaps with a sinister twist.

I also ran into the wonderful people at Headsville Roll.  They have a lot of nifty stuff.  I bought a small Zombie Acrylic that I will treasure forever by an artist named Jack Larson.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got a very nice surprise when I ran into John.  He is the person who sold me Little Jason and Little Michael originally.  I guess you could say he’s like their dad.  I bought a couple pins from him and he was kind enough to pose with the guys.  Look for him at a horror convention near you.  tell him that you are a fan of the Trio and thank him!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you want some laughs and some scares then check out “The Puppet Monster Massacre”.  Of course the Trio loves the idea of murderous dolls so they wanted a picture with Dustin Mills and Erica Kisseberth.  Thanks guys and good luck.  We will be watching for you in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Trio ran into one of their biggest crushes, Terra Incognita.  She is in the film “She Devils A Go Go”.  Make sure that you check it out.

The biggest surprise of the day was running into the iconic “Zombie Girl” from “Night of the Living Dead”.  She was very gracious and thought the Trio was hilarious.  Nice to meet you Kyra Schon.

 

 

Let’s be honest though, there wa only one big reason why we spent the day amongst the scary.  We wanted to meet John Saxon.  He is a legend and has a close personal relationship with Freddy Krueger.  He was so nice and so patient with the fans.  His wife was very impressed when she found about the Trio’s fan base.  She asked that we give a shoutout.  Go to his site to purchase a photo or better yet, send him a note or an email and tell him how much you admire him.  Tell him that the Trio and Jenny Bendis sent you.  Visit his site at Johnsaxonsite.com or drop him a note:

All in all, it was a fabulous day at Cinema Wasteland.  The Trio and I can’t wait until the Fall Expo.  Have a great Summer and keep watching those Horror Movies!!

 

 

How Amazing is This??

I wrote about a remake of “The Munsters” in December. The television series is headed for NBC in the Fall and will be retitled “Mockingbird Lane”. Bryan Singer is directing the pilot which is said to be a much darker version of the beloved television series. The story is set to start with the relocation of “The Munsters” to Mockingbird Lane after an animal attack brought on by Eddie Munster’s puberty-driven transformations. Best news of all……Eddie Izzard has been cast as Grandpa Munster. Yippee!!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday To Fred Rogers otherwise known as Mister Rogers.  He hosted “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” for 33 years. Fred Rogers was born in 1928 and passed away in 2003.  I watched him when I was a kid and I have to admit sometimes it was pretty scary.  LOL  Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers!!

“You start to play it and it’s like somebody’s nightmare. And then this woman comes on, smiling at you, right? Seeing you through the screen. Then when it’s over, your phone rings, someone knows you watched the tape and what they say is, ‘You will die in seven days.’”

Best Horror Movie Quotes

“There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But, there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.”

 

Patrick Bateman

“American Psycho”, 2000
