For those of you who posted to the blog comments about what Sci-Fi Saturday night said I have no comment and will not trash talk on the air tonight or on a blog. My rant about Blockbuster bring back late fees, or the fact Legion and Day Breakers started the horror genre on a sucky note for the year are different. Those are thoughts that don’t hurt any one, when you make a movie or do a dum corporate move, than you leave your self open to major thumbs down attitude. I have nothing to say about this matter Again thank you to those who brought this to my attention.
This weekend we have the Director of God of Vampires coming on the show. Rob Fitz also got done working on make up for Ken Foree and Robert Englund recently.
Next week the Author of Transformers War for Cybertron Exodus will be on the show
Then we have the peopel behind The Can’t stop the Serenity——Radio of Horror will be on the Sci -Fi Pod Cast in the next few weeks—–Radio of Horror will also be taking a trip to RI to visit the town of the first American Vampire, then in July we travel to Martha’s Vinyard to see the sights and location settings of the movie Jaws, last in August we visit the home of Gothic cartoon artist Edward Gorey.

Two shows I have followed for many years have at long last come to an end. I have watched every episode and stayed glued to my seat for every twist and turn of events. Now only one of these shows has anything to do with what we cover on Radio of Horror. But I had to say something about these amazing shows one to never return and another with a story yet to tell.
Jack Bauer (played by Keifer Sutherland who has endured more torture than anyone else I know on tv) has saved the USA from terrorists plots over and over and over again. The show started in 2001 after 9/11 was on hiatus thru 2008 with only a made for TV movie. When it returned we got two more seasons. Tonight the show ended, with Jack as a fugitive on the run from the law. He tried to bring to light a conspiracy that took the life of Rene Walker. We do have a 24 movie in the works for 2012, in the mean time we have to wonder what is going to happen next for Bauer. Many great characters, President David Palmer, Bill Bucanon, Chole Sullivan, Tony Almeda, Charles Logan and so many more. 24 changed tv in ways we may never see again. There had never been a show like it before. It will be greatly missed.
There had been shows with mythology type story lines before they came from great tv like the X-Files, this show had everything from great literature references to stuff about Star Wars. It was a show at times was very creepy but still fun to watch for it had humor in the most off beat places. A lot of people tried to follow the flashback flash forward upside-down world of the show. ( SPOILER ALERT The side ways universe was really Heaven.) In the Series finale Jack and the gang now filled with a sence of purpose decide to take down the Smoke Monster who’s been pretending to be John Locke since last season once and for all. We got the origins of Jacob and the Man in Black and Richard this season after much wait and anticipation. It was nice to see who the true choice was to protect the island, it makes sence in away you would have to understand after watching the show. Lost will have many questions to answer for years to come. A big dvd box set is coming out and it may just answer those questions we have been seeking. Check out the Lost unplugged videos on www.abc.com, they are hosted by a Muppet version of Dr. Peire Chang (Miles chang’s father)
After much delay I finally got a chance to watch the Hammer film, Beyond the Rave . It may not be the classic stuff from the 50s and 60s but it is pretty good none the less. It’s about a soldier in the British Air force about to go to Iraq to fight in the war. He decided to go to a rave in search of his girl friend, but finds out the rave is being used to feed Vampires. It originally aired on MySpace as a web show and is now collected on dvd. Hammer made some great films in the classic golden age of Horror. Christopher Lee returns to Hammer this year. He teams with Hilary Swank and Jeffery Dean Morgan. Lee goes together with Horror like Stan Lee and Comic Books. (no relation). We will be having another Hammer tribute show coming up. We hope to get an expert on Hammer on the show next time.
