Mike Ensley, Chip Chism and Lemmie Crews have been presenting horror genre films for Pensacola audiences and beyond for almost 20 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 2018.

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 and scifi films in a humorous manner with little respect and a side of intriguing film history. They are joined each week by the mysterious Curator, played by Julio Diaz, (himself the curator of the Merrill Movie Museum in real life), who brings authentic movie and television props and memorabilia from the Merrill collection and gives insight into the magic of modern motion picture production.
