MEXICAN MONSTER PARTY SEPTEMBER 2015

By Roberto "Bobb" Cotter
   
Hola amigos, and welcome to the latest exciting chapter of the Mexican Monster Party! In order to get yinz psyched up for the very special appearance of BLUE DEMON JR. at next month's Bash, we present two more great movies featuring his Famous Father. But before we get to those, just let me mention that I'm still working on my book about Female Horror Hosts, so if anyone has any memories or photos they'd like to share, Ron will forward the emails to me (Thanks, Ron!). The plea has already produced positive results, for which I'm eternally grateful.

But back to the movies: yes, movies, because it's double-feature time again. If they're packaged that way, I review 'em that way! First up is SANTO Y BLUE DEMON CONTRA LOS MONSTRUOS (the translation is pretty obvious). This one's a real sentimental favorite, because a photo from it was used to lead off the article in the late, great Monsters of the Movies from Marvel, titled "Monsters in Foreign Lands," most of which concerned the Mexican films. I'd seen one or two Mexican films on Chiller Theater, but I had no idea that it was part of a much wilder and wonderful sub-genre. Fast forward 40 years; the inspiration that I received from that article turned into a life-long love of Mexican horror films and my first book, THE MEXICAN MASKED WRESTLER AND MONSTER FILMOGRAPHY.



SANTO & BLUE DEMON VS. THE MONSTERS is an all-star Monster Rally of the first order. Not only does it feature four of the "classic" monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, a Wolf Man, and a Mummy), but the Cyclops from Ship of Monsters, assorted vampire women, sinister midgets, and, as a cherry on top, an "evil" Blue Demon. There's some unforgettable scenes; some of the outré variety (the Frankenstein Monster, sporting a moustache and goatee, driving a sports car!) to some genuinely shocking parts, like when the Wolf Man murders an entire family in cold (and copious) blood. The film is briskly paced, never boring, and Manuel Leal, who plays the Frankenstein Monster, later became Tinieblas, the wrestling star.

The bottom half of the bill (or the flip side of the DVD), SANTO CONTRA BLUE DEMON EN ATLANTIDA ("Santo vs. Blue Demon in Atlantis) is a completely whack sci-fi opus. The Commission on World Safety, it seems, is deeply worried about some old geezer named Aquiles who wants to take over the world; literally old, he and his missus are over 100! The CWS calls in Secret Agent X21 and Santo, and they are put through various hoops, including an "evil" Blue Demon (AGAIN with the evil Blue Demon!), death traps and seductions. Santo then meets a female secret agent who leads him to a submerged city called Atlantis (It's never made clear whether this is supposed to be THE Atlantis). Many underwater hi-jinks ensue, there are ferocious battles, and everything ends in a big explosion. Well, except for Santo and Blue and the few survivors, naturally. The End.



And that's the end of this months column. Join us next month for a special preview of the selection for Mexican Movie Night at the October Bash. And Juan Ortiz and I are going to be doing a Q & A with Blue Demon Jr. at some point that weekend, so get your questions ready. And please try to make some of them about him, not all about his father.

(Editor's Note: See all the cool Mexi-Monster events, including the Q&A with Roberto and Blue Demon, Jr. The complete schedule is here: http://www.monsterbashnews.com/scheduleOctober.html)

As always, please remember to give a free click at the Animal Rescue Site to help provide food and care for shelter animals; better yet, adopt one! Until we meet again, Adios and Vaya con Dios, mi compadres. -Uncle Roberto, Cousin Lucky, and Cher.

Roberto "Bob" Cotter is the author of THE MEXICAN MASKED WRESTLER AND MONSTER FILMOGRAPHY published by McFarland Books.

Mexi-Movie fans...please note that Blue Demon, Jr, will make a rare public appearance at the MONSTER BASH OCTOBERFEST all three days - October 16-18, 2015. Don't miss meeting him, getting an autograph! Question and answer session moderated by Roberto "Bobb" Cotter and Juan Ortiz.

 

 

Monster Bashin' Birthdays of Note

And now, the latest birthdays of note from Creepy Classics rovin' reporter, Scott Goettel:

Hi Ron,

The birthday list today is for three fine actors, all born on August 31st.



We'll start with an actor born in Vienna Austria - Herbert Wise, born 8/31/1924, and he recently passed away this past month on August 5th at age 90.  He appeared in the original 1989 version of THE WOMAN IN BLACK, a very effective and chilling made for TV movie.  Ironically, his first screen appearance was in 1957 on a TV show called "Hour of Mystery", and the title of the episode was THE WOMAN IN WHITE.  He also appeared on the TV series "The Edgar Wallace Mystery Theater", "Ruth Rendell Mysteries", "Mystery: Cadfael", and several episodes of "Tales of the Unexpected" (not the American version of that series).

Our next August 31st birthday is the legendary Frederic March (real name: Ernest Frederick McIntyre Bickel), born 8/31/1897, and died at age 77 on 4/14/1975.  Of course we all know his terrific performance in the 1931 version of DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE...a Monster Kid favorite.  Other great film roles include I MARRIED A WITCH (1942 - co-starring Veronica Lake), and classics such as A STAR IS BORN (1937), THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES, AN ACT OF MURDER, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, and he appeared in a TV series called "Shower of Stars", in which he played Ebenezer Scrooge two different times...once in 1954, and again in 1956.  Plus, he was host and narrator for a 1958 version of "A Christmas Carol" on a TV series called "FREDERIC MARCH PRESENT TALES FROM DICKENS."

And last but certainly not least is the birthday of Richard Basehart, born 8/31/1914, and died at age 70 on 9/17/1984.  I assume most if not all of us immediately think of his role as Admiral Nelson on the long running TV series VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, a great show!  His other roles include a wide variety of genres, but the ones that stand out for me include great crime thrillers and film noirs such as HE WALKED BY NIGHT, TENSION, SIDE STREET (Basehart was uncredited in his role as a bank teller), FOURTEEN HOURS, and THE HOUSE ON TELEGRAPH HILL.  He also appeared in THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, THE SATAN BUG, LOST IN SPACE (an episode titled "The Derelict"...an uncredited Basehart's voice is heard reading Shakespeare), CITY BENEATH THE SEA, TIME TRAVELERS (a 1976 made for TV movie), MANSION OF THE DOOMED, and TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED (the American version of that TV series).

There are a lot of candles to blow out for these August 31st birthdays, and we Monster Bashers shout out Happy Bashin' Birthday!

~Scott

New! Vintage Monster Story Book

When I was eight years old my parents moved us from Grove City, PA to State College, PA. I attended Park Forest Elementary School and was in the third grade. The library was newer and bigger than the one from Grove City....and I found books I had never seen before. One of them was THIS book. It was called MONSTER MUSEUM, edited by Alfred Hitchcock. It was an over-sized book with fascinating painting, wash illustrations with collage photos that were really creepy. So were the stories! Great stories by Ray Bradbury, Guy Endore and others. Classic horror tales from the 19th century and many from the 20th century from Weird Tales magazine. I loved these stories and this book. I took it out many times.

Here are some of the interior illustrations:

Creepy....

One of the stories, called "Slime" had to be an influence to the screenwriter of THE BLOB movie.

Am amazing collection that I oroginally found for myself in that Park Forest Elementary School library. It was near the beginning of school, autumn was in the air and this book was under my arm. Little did I realize it was more of my professional education that the other school books that were also under my arm.

One of these used books is in stock now, if you want to enjoy it, like I do! Get it from our Creepy Bookstore, here at Creepy Classics.

Happy Birthday To New Generation MONSTER KID, Paisley Adams

Above clockwise from top left: Home made robot costume for a Halloween a few years ago, face monster painting Tod Spidle's face at MONSTER BASH, fencing with Tom Savini on stage at MONSTER BASH, John Adams (friend in skull mask) and Paisley at MONSTER BASH!

Paisley is as old as the MONSTER BASH CONFERENCE. She was 11 months old at the first one back in 1997. She's now 19 and it's her first day at college. Where did THAT time go? Yesterday we had a nice conversation about a haunted mine, two days ago I asked her if she had seen THE THING WITH TWO HEADS (Ray Milland movie) and she replied, twice! She's working at a local grocery store and came home yesterday to tell me that she met a dad wearing a Frankenstein shirt and the kids had Marvel super heroes in their shirts. She got into a monster/super hero discission with them. It ended with the dad saying, ehen you boys get older, you need to meet and marry a girl as cool as this! He had asked her if she had seen a Frankenstein movie....HA! If he only knew....the whole story.

Paisley, daughter of the MONSTER BASH CONFERENCE....Happy Birthday!

 

 

Tales of The MoleMan

By M. Oleman

Special Edition!

Here it is, unedited and revealed to the public...this was found in my e-mail from M. Oleman and I've alerted the proper authorities -Ron Adams. Here is the e-mail from Oleman:

The following is a true story. More or less.

My mind was in a fog, and my skull ached as if one of those parasites from THE BRAIN EATERS had attached itself to me. I looked around and everything was flat as far as the eye could see. Strange black lines and blocks were everywhere on the ground. In the distance I could see what appeared to be two smallish mountains that were exactly rectangular in shape. I could not move and found myself rooted to the spot. There was weird writing at my feet that said New Vasaria Railroad $300 and the space ahead of me said Karloff Way $750. Suddenly I heard a loud rumbling and two enormous blocks tumbled off across the way. A loud voice yelled "AHA!" and a large hand reached down and moved something past me. It was a small pot metal figure that looked exactly like the little kid Ichiro from GODZILLA'S REVENGE. I looked down at myself and realized that I was a small metal figure too. Straining my eyes I looked to the side into what appeared to be an enormous drinking glass, and saw my reflection. I was a one inch tall statue of Dr. Roger Bentley as played by John Agar in the movie THE MOLE PEOPLE. I even had a tiny flashlight to keep the monstrous Mole People at bay. Little plastic haunted houses and castles were spread about everywhere, and I could see other metal figures. There was Shaggy from Scooby Doo, the Frankenstein Monster and the SS Rita.

Somehow, someway I had been imprisoned in a Monster Bash Monopoly Game. I was a playing piece. The mountains were decks of Chance and Community Chest cards. Was I dreaming? Or was this reality and my other life a dream? How could this be? What fiendish level of Hades was I in where this was possible and what could I have done to deserve such a fate? Was is because I cut the the Marvel Value Stamps out of my comic books when I was a kid, thus ruining their collectible value for future generations? That was an awful long time ago. But then it occurred to me that if I had to be tortured in this manner at least I looked like a tiny John Agar. And then once again the great thundering sound as the two huge blocks, which I now knew were dice, tumbled across the landscape and I found myself gripped by a giant hand and moved forward. The space I landed on said Wrath Of Ursula Lose A Turn. "NO FAIR!" a voice rumbled with the sound of a thousand trumpets. More dice were rolled and other players moved their pieces around the board. A hearse moved past me and on the other side of the board I noticed a tiny Inspector Krogh and little plastic ramshackle houses. I felt myself moved again and landed on a spot that said David "the Rock" Nelson Movie Marathon-Lose 2 Turns.

"NOOO FAIRRR!!" the voice roared again, evidently angry at the capricious results of the roll of the dice. At this point even though I could not move I was able to strain my eyes upward, and to my utter horror found myself looking upon the enormous Mount Rushmore-sized head of Monster Bash Staffer Ted Lewcyk. You who attend the Monster Bash Conference are perhaps familiar with Ted's gregarious personality and smiling face, often at registration or in the Creepy Classics room. But he wasn't smiling now. His eyes were flaming red and spittle was flying from his lips. "NOOO FAIRRR!!" he yelled again, and at that point I knew what was coming next. With both hands he gripped the edges of the game board and flipped it into the air. I tried to brace myself but my puny, cast metal arms hung uselessly at my side. Dice and cards flew by my head. One card read Monster Bash Dealer Room Infested with Bats-Exterminator Fee $100 and another read Bail Igor Out Of Jail $50. I tumbled over and over as plastic haunted houses and New Vasaria Dollars swirled around me. The last thing I remember was seeing Monster Bash Staff members locked in a death struggle with their hands around each other's throats while a fire burned out of control in the background.

Then I woke up. I was tangled in my BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS bed sheets and found that in my thrashing I had knocked off my nightstand the replica of the laboratory from BEGINNING OF THE END that I had built out of macaroni. To calm myself down I went to the kitchen and followed my usual routine of chugging a large glass of Great Bluedini Kool-Aid and reading a chapter from The Mothman Prophecies. Monster Bash 2015 was great as usual, but it always leaves me with nightmares.

October Bash 2015 in less than two months. In my head I'm already there.

Jim Davis Birthday Remembered

This just in from Creepy Classics ace reporter with his thumb on birthday histories of our favorite actors:

August 26th is the birthday of actor Jim Davis (born Marlin Davis).  Born 8/26/1909, he passed away at age 71 on April 26th, 1981. 

Of course we all remember his role as the family patriarch Jock Ewing on the long running TV series DALLAS, but his career goes back to his first film called CAIRO (1942), and Jim was uncredited in his role as a sergeant. 

For us Monster Kids, Jim Davis appeared in several roles that we find appealing, such as BORIS KARLOFF'S THRILLER, THE TIME TUNNEL, NIGHT GALLERY, THE SIXTH SENSE (TV series), PROJECT U.F.O., THE DAY TIME ENDED, and...DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN (yes, the one with Forry Ackerman)!

Bash Birthday Wishes,

~Scott
