Save the Date: Launch Event at the WSRE Amos Studio November 9

Starting Oct. 27, new episodes of NIGHTMARE THEATRE will be part of WSRE’s Saturday late-night program lineup, airing at 10 p.m. before DOCTOR WHO.

Mike Ensley, Chip Chism and Lemmie Crews have been presenting horror genre films for Pensacola audiences and beyond for 17 years. Their NIGHTMARE THEATRE television show first found a home on Cox Media Channel 39 in 2001. Since then, there have been film festivals, other cable access broadcasts and even a national appearance on SpikeTV’s “Ghouls Gone Wild” in 2006.

Ensley, Chism and Crews have gained renown beyond the local viewing area as NIGHTMARE THEATRE hosts: the Baron Mondo Von Doren, El Sapo de Tempesto and Mittens the Werewolf. They are part of the Horror Host Underground Network and were inducted into the Horror Host Hall of Fame at the HorrorHound Weekend convention and film festival in Cincinnati, Ohio in March.

In the series plot, the Baron is a minor demon assigned to the physical plane to inflict misery upon mankind by way of “bad” movies. With his sidekicks—the masked wrestler El Sapo and pet werewolf Mittens—the Baron introduces old horror films in a humorous manner with little respect and a side of intriguing film history.

Production of 13 episodes is scheduled to begin on Aug. 6. The following films will be featured in this inaugural season produced by WSRE:

  • The Killer Shrews
  • A Bucket of Blood
  • Little Shop of Horrors
  • Mesa of Lost Women
  • The Long Hair of Death
  • Moon of the WolF
  • Horror ExpresS
  • The Wasp Woman
  • Warning from Space
  • They Came from Beyond Space
  • Track of the Moon Beast
  • The House on Haunted Hill
  • The Brain That Wouldn’t Die
