Wonder Twin Powers Activate!


Ah back to Saturday morning cartoons and Zan and Jayna as the Wonder Twins. The super friends where a big part of my life growing up. And I seemed to like the underdog superheroes the best.

The Wonder Twins were two alien siblings from the planet Exxor. Arriving on Earth, they soon endeared themselves to the heroic team, the Super Friends and acted as the team's official sidekick/mascots for a brief duration. Originally, the Wonder Twins were exclusive to the continuity of theSuper Friends animated series and the Super Friends comic book adaptation, but they were later re-imagined for the modern Post-Crisis environment and introduced in the pages of Extreme Justice.

He's Back!!! The World's Most Evil Man with a Fiendish Plan of Conquest

The Castle Of Fu Manchu 
1969 | Color | 92 Min. | 1.85.1 | PG | Action | Mono | Blue Underground

Source: Full Moon Streaming

Director:  Jess Franco

Writers: Manfred Barthel

Stars: 
Christopher Lee
Richard Greene
Howard Marion-Crawford 

The evil mastermind Fu Manchu plots his latest scheme to basically freeze over the Earth's oceans with his diabolical new device. Opposing him is his arch-nemesis, Interpol's very British Dr. Nayland Smith.

Ugh, not the movie I should have started with. I always hear about these Fu Manchu movies and sold a bunch when I worked at a video store. Today I was looking for something different and stopped on Jess Franco's vision with Castle of Fu Manchu. I don't know what I was thinking I should have read up on it first I guess. But I like to go into things not knowing so I can make my own opinion open minded. Slow burn's are ok if they end well but not this movie. In fact, fast forwarding became the norm. This movie was so bad I could not stand it. Yet I went to the end even if I did other things like laundry.

eBay Horror Tiles

I have been cleaning up my Horror Collection this week and decide it's time to move a few of these tiles. I have been a big fan of Swap a DVD for many years, but some of my tiles don't move very fast. So I'm going to give eBay a try. Here is what I  started with.

 Hellbound Hellraiser 2 VHS

For some goofy reason, I had two copies of this one. The last one I bought the other day is a rare copy so I'm going to keep that one and try and dump this one. Feel Free to Bid on it here.

Archie Vs Sharknado coming soon.

Is it wrong that I already pre-ordered this book? I know that the whole Archie comic line has gone off the deep end but I'm a sucker for anything Sharknado.

This summer, just in time for Syfy’s SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO!, fans will see an unexpected, jaw-dropping twist to the Sharknado saga - in Riverdale USA! Just when Archie and the gang think they can kick back and enjoy a few months of beaches, naps and sun, they’re faced with a storm of sharknados - heading straight for their hometown of Riverdale. Archie and his friends have to battle the incoming pop culture storm as it creeps up the “Feast” coast to Riverdale - and then try to save what’s left of their hometown. Who lives? Who dies? Read the book!

The most Kick ASS Villain ever.


Back in 1988 I was pretty much over the comic book thing and had moved on to more important things like...girls. I was a huge Spiderman fan growing up so when all the buzz came about with the Venom character my curiosity was peaked. So without telling my buddies I snuck down to the comic book store to pick up my copy! I was hooked right away.

I would buy them from time to time but it was not until I was working at a production studio that I found myself reading comic books again. All the guy's I worked with helped me get caught up in the Marvel Universe.

And who could forget those hard Venom video games on the NES or Saga that took many hours of my day. Still to this day Venom has to be one of the coolest villains ever!

The A to Z Challenge is almost over I can not believe I have made it this far. If you like what you have seen please feel free to follow me. I'm not always posting about Horror movies I promise.

Underdog is here!


There's no need to fear! Underdog is here!

when criminals in this world appear
and break the laws that they should fear
and frighten all who see or hear
the cry goes up both far and near
for Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

speed of lightning, roar of thunder
fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog. Underdog!

when in this world the headlines read
of those whose hearts are filled with greed
who rob and steal from those who need
to right this wrong with blinding speed
goes Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

speed of lightning, roar of thunder
fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog. Underdog!

Know try and get that theme song out of your head. Loved watching Underdog as a child. Was not a fan of the live action movie tho. That was kind of lame.

T for Tick. Spoon!!!!


Next to Aquaman there is one more superhero that takes up some space in the Man Cave. That would be the crazy and quotable Tick. Not sure why I love this character but I do.

It's easy to say the Cave has Comic Books, TV Shows, Cartoons and even a few Action figure's laying around.

Crazy to think an 18-year-old kid started this hero back in 1986 as a mascot for a comic book store.

If you are interested in reading the adventures of The Tick and his sidekick Arthur Free Comic Book Day is coming May 2nd where you can pick up an issue for yourself. Or just head HERE for a free download preview.

S is for Sven...Goolie that is.


It should not come as a surprise for those of you that lurk around my blog that Sven would show up in this countdown. My fascination with Horror Host's will go all the way back to Yellow Screaming Theatre hosted by Gerry G Bishop. And then followed by current host Rich Koz.

In this day and age, I wish everybody still had a Horror Host to call they're own. Even when Sven was not on TV we still had Up all night and Billy Bob but nothing is better than Chicago's very own Ghoul.

If Horror Host's ever went away it will be a sad, sad day. This year is something special on the show as they plan on not showing any reruns. And they still have a ton of Universal Horror to show. My girls new his name when they were baby's and know it is on TV just by hearing the theme song. Sadly tho today Rich tweeted that his dad has passed so I send out my thoughts and prayers to his family. I invite you all to check out his website for more details. www.svengoolie.com  and always stop by on Saturdays as I gladly post what is on that night.

The Bong Is Back!

Evil Bong 420!
2015 | Color | 53 Min. | 1.85.1 | R | Horror | Dolby Digital | Full Moon Features

Source: Full Moon Streaming 

Directed by Charles Band

Cast:   
Amy Paffrath 
Robin Sydney 
John Patrick Jordan 
Sonny Carl Davis

Plot:
Polish your balls and head to the lanes. Rabbit has escaped the Evil Bong’s World of Weed and has opened a topless bowling alley. It’s the Grand Opening and the balls are rolling, the boobs are bouncing and the weed is plentiful. When his old friends, Larnell and Sarah Leigh stop by to help him celebrate his wacky new business venture, things are finally looking up for Rabbit, right? Wrong! Evil Bong is hot on Rabbit’s trail. With the help of the murderous Gingerdead Man, they crash the most balls-out party of the century. But Gingerdead Man has plans of his own when he learns that the secret to becoming a real man is getting his cookies off.


Beep Beep!


Beep Beep or was it Meep Meep? Well According to animation historian Michael Barrier, Paul Julian's preferred spelling of the sound effect was "hmeep hmeep".

Who did not love the road runner and Wile E. Coyote? I could not wait for this part of the Bug's Bunny show. I would sit and wait and wait for that 7 minutes of violence. Growing up we were not allowed to watch shows like Tom and Jerry, Speed Racer or the 3 Stooges due to the violent content. But somehow we could sneak this show past mom.

This dynamic duo have teamed up for 48 wonderful cartoons.
