IT’S A RED, WHITE, BLUE, AND CLASSIC HORROR FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE THIS WEEK ON BETA MAX TV!!!

It’s Independence Day weekend!  So the Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE is celebrating with a red, white, and blue special and classic horror!

It’s a tri-color walk down memory lane with THE RED, THE WHITE, AND THE BLUE FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF TELEVISION special!  A celebration of red, white, and blue in commercials and cartoons including the animated treats The Lady In Red, Betty Boop in Snow White, and Susie the Little Blue Coupe and assorted classic ads for beer, detergent, shampoo, and more!

The classic horror legend continues as Ritch, Triv and the rest of the bearded gang feature the big guy with the big feet in BOGGY CREEK 2 – THE LEGEND CONTINUES on The Midnight Movie.  It’s the official sequel to the story of a huge harry man-like creature in the wilds of Arkansas. A scientist and crew set up camp near the sightings and relate stories while searching for the beast (1984)

Marquis DeBlood presents a legend of classic horror in HE WHO GETS SLAPPED on The Horror Of It All’s Silent Screams.  Lon Chaney stars in this 1924 tale of an inventor, betrayed by a scheming man, who becomes a circus clown and finds he must save the woman he loves, a fellow circus performer,  from the clutches of his betrayer.

It’s more classic horror from Mistress Malicious with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL on Mistress Peace Theatre.  An eccentric man tells 5 guests they will each earn $10,000 if they spend the night in his haunted house (Vincent Price, 1959) Mistress Malicious investigates to find who has drained her wine cellar dry!

And it’s classic horror – with a musical twist – in the Mansion Of Mystery presentation of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE.  It’s a 1973 musical TV version of the story of a doctor who develops a drug to release man’s inner evil.   CJ the werewolf falls in love and tries to become human and a strange cousin of Scarlett’s visits from England.

Red, white and blue fun and classic horror!  Celebrate your independence from boring TV with your home for B-movies… and fun!  Beta Max TV!!!

CELEBRATE THE START OF SUMMER WITH THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

Summer’s here!  And so is a whole bunch of summer fun on this week’s Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!

Uncle Pete presents a super serving of summer themed cinema on UNCLE PETE’S DARK VAULT SUMMERTIME SPECIAL.  First, there’s The Summer Trailer Spectacular then Betty Boop and Bosko at the beach, the Little Rascals’ Olympic Games, Ozzie and Harriet’s Big Plans For Summer and lots of music and summer themed shorts.

It’s a hot day in Hawlywood for Beaucoup Askew’s Fashion Trashin THIS SUMMER’S NEWEST TV SHOWS. So Diamond and Cinnamon preview the newestest summer TV shows. Plus the hottest music video – Summer Sux by Party Bulb and an ad for the latest ride sharing service – Dump!

Next, it’s a swingin’ time in A SWINGIN’ SUMMER (1965).  College kids attempt to rescue a lakeside dance pavilion by staging a concert. This musical was the first major film outing for Raquel Welch.

And it may not be a surfin’ hearse  but is is THE HEARSE on The Midnight Movie.  Take a ride with Triv and the gang for this 1980 thriller about a woman who, after a nervous breakdown, moves to her late aunt’s country house where she’s plagued by apparitions and a disappearing hearse.

And finally, it’s back to the beach for THE FAT SPY (1966).  In this beach movie spoof, a group of teenagers heads to an island rumored to hold the Fountain Of Youth while some sinister types have their own plans.  Starring Phyllis Diller, Brian Donlevy, Jack E. Leonard, Jayne Mansfield and The Wild Ones.

It’s a non-stop party – with some creepy thrown in for good measure – in this week’s FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies… and S-U-M-M-E-R!!!  Beta Max TV!!!

A BUNCH OF NOT-VERY-NICE PEOPLE BEING BAD ON THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!

Killers, creeps, and convicts abound – and cause a lot of trouble – in this week’s Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!

Uncle Pete hits the uncharted weirdness of Lake Dark Vault for a Dark Vault Of Public Domain double feature with THE CHEYENNE KID and TORTURE SHIP.  Uncle Pete sets row in the SS PETE to hunt for the monster of Lake Dark Vault to bring you western action about a cowboy framed for murder by a shifty ranch hand and terror on the high seas with a crazed doctor and his bizarre experiments to cure crime through surgery..

There’s a world of bad dudes on The Midnight Movie with the 1983 film STRYKER.  Triv and Ritch and the gang feature a post-apocalyptic film from the Philippines about rival tribes clashing while searching for the last sources of drinkable water.

A bad guy gets even badder after a signing a satanic sales contract in THE DEVIL’S PARTNER on After Hours Cinema.  It’s some devilish horror from Lee as he presents this 1958 film about an old man who sells his soul to the devil to become young. He then uses black magic to try destroy those in his way and woo the woman he desires.

It’s wholesale destruction meets luchador fashion in the review of the 1991 Mexican action film LA VENGANZA DE LOS PUNKS on Mondopiece Theatre.  Members of a violent and flamboyant gang break out of jail to destroy the family of the cop who caught them. But he survives to exact a special vengeance!

And it’s a bad guy to rent to in the Mansion Of Mystery presentation of MAN IN THE ATTIC. A strange man rents an old attic room but the landlady soon begins to suspect he might be Jack the Ripper. Mrs. O’Brien, selling catnip bath crystals door-to-door, gets invited to dinner by a flesh eating ghoul not knowing she’s on the menu.

Bad people being bad – it’s all here this week in the FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies… and some not-very-nice people from time to time!  Beta Max TV!!!
