About the Show

Since 2001, Mike Ensley, Chip Chism and Lemmie Crews have been presenting B-movie horror films in character as the endearing horror hosts Baron Mondo Von Doren, El Sapo de Tempesto and Mittens the Werewolf.

WSRE began producing their NIGHTMARE THEATRE television show for local broadcast in 2018. Today, the series is airing and live streaming on PBS stations in seven Southeast markets.

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. Each film is introduced in a humorous manner with little respect and a side of intriguing film history.

Ensley, Chism and Crews are part of the Horror Host Underground Network and were inducted into the Horror Host Hall of Fame in 2018.
