MYSTERIES, MUSIC, MEDICINE, AND A TASTE OF SPOOKY SCARY MONTH ON THE FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

Sightings of strange beasts, a rock and roll romp, ghosts, a warning, and kick-off of October’s vampire party are the treats in this week’s Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!

October is Spooky Scary Month at  Beta Max TV and this also just happens to be the Year Of The Vampire (with Nosferatu’s anniversary and all).  So we’re kicking off the vampire celebration with SAGA OF THE VAMPIRE DEBLOOD – PT. 1. on The Horror Of It All’s Silent Screams.  The Marquis DeBlood brings you the first of a five part saga from the early days of the Marquis and his presentations, this week featuring the tale of a girl and her vampire – Into The Arms Of Death

And with Spooky Scary Month starting this weekend, how about a ghost or two.  Oliver the Caretaker has them in THE GHOST WALKS on Spine Chilling Cinema. In this 1934 mystery, 3 people are forced to spend the night in a doctor’s creepy house after and accident on the anniversary of a murder and soon ghost sightings and other strange things start up.

Ever think you saw a strange creature in the woods or maybe a lake?  Dive into the world of creature sightings on The Midnight Movie presentation of THE MYSTERIOUS MONSTERS.  Triv and the gang go monster hunting with this 1976 film narrated by Peter Graves about the sighting and signs of several famous monsters including Yeti, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster.

Rock and roll legends take the stage in CATCH US IF YOU CAN on The Cinema Snob. The Snob reviews the 1965 Dave Clark 5 music/comedy/romance film also known as Having A Wild Weekend with the boys playing stuntmen and one falls for a runaway model.

And finally, there’s a scare in the air from Dwain Esper, the granddaddy of exploitation, on Mondopiece Theatre with SEX MADNESS!  It’s a review of the 1938 scare film warning about the dangers of venereal diseases – especially syphilis – that results from promiscuousness and quack medical treatments.

Getting all sorts of monsters out and sneaking into Spooky Scary Month with a vampire in the FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies… and more gore in store!  Beta Max TV!!!  NOW AVAILABLE IN CANADA!!!

BETA MAX TV WELCOMES AUTUMN WITH A WHIRLWIND OF ACTION AND HORROR ON THE FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

Mad doctors, mad mercenaries, and mad voodoo welcome the Fall on the Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!

Dave and Mike find a woman whose past catches up with her in a deadly way in The Weirdness Really Bad Movie presentation of CREATURE OF DESTRUCTION.  A hypnotist reverts a woman to the prehistoric monster she was in a previous life and uses her to kill and help him gain power. (1967) Dave and Mike host from Lake Muck-A-Muck.

Triv and the gang take to the hills of Turkey for action with RAMPAGE on The Midnight Movie. It’s a classically cheezy Turkish version of Rambo where a commando must capture a group of terrorists hiding in the mountains (1986)

There’s a cellar full of wine and a pan full of Jan in the Mistress Peace Theatre presentation of THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE.  A doctor experimenting with transplants keeps his girlfriend’s head alive in a pan after an accident while he searches for a new body. Damonica tries to restock the wine cellar – but at a cost – and Cordelia’s snooping incurs Mistress’ maliciousness!

Freezer Mortis goes ape for KONG ISLAND on Formerly Crappics.  In this 1968 film a man kidnaps a woman by controlling apes with brain implants. A mercenary sent to rescue her enlists the aid of a legendary jungle girl.

And that ain’t no Barbie doll with that knife in CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE on Tennessee Macabre.  A voodoo priest captures the souls of his victims in devil dolls and uses them to seek revenge on the people that stole a relic from his temple (1960)

Even as the seasons change, the great movies just keep on comin’ in the FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on you home for B-movies… and movies for any time of the year!  Beta Max TV!!!

WE LOVE CRITTERS AND FOOD – THIS WEEK IN THE FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

Cuddly – and not so cuddly – critters and some fancy cookin’ fill the features in this week’s Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!

Uncle Pete and El Vato discuss lots of moon things while a weird lizard man roams the screen in The Dark Vault Of Public Domain presentation of TRACK OF THE MOON BEAST.  A young man, struck by a meteorite while rock hunting in the desert,  is transformed into a hideous “moon beast” due to a fragment of the rock lodged in his body

Something smells good in this weeks episode of Beaucoup Askew’s Fashion TrashinTHE SASSY CHEF.  Sassy Silassy, The Sassy Chef, stops by the studio to cook up some succulent snacks with Cinnamon and Diamond! And the girls take a look at the reboot of kids show Vanilla Villa.

There’s a big, furry critter in The Midnight Movie, maybe a little too big – at 36 feet tall!  THE APE is a 1976 Korean movie about a giant ape that escapes from a freighter and rampages through Korea while kidnapping an American actress filming there.

The Cinema Snob has a furry critter too – and this one IS cuddly!  The Snob reviews MRS. BROWN YOU’VE GOT A LOVELY DAUGHTER, a 1968 love story movie starring Peter Noone and Hermans Hermits about a man and his racing greyhound.

And the critter in Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Theatre is not cuddly at all.  ZONTAR, THE THING FROM VENUS is a 1967 science fiction tale of a scientist who contacts an alien and helps it land on Earth but soon finds its plans are to control all humans. (John Agar)

Cuddly or not, we’ve got critters and food this week in the FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies… and weird dinner companions!  Beta Max TV!!!
