31 days of Horror Nerd Indoctrination- Day Twenty Two: USA Up all Night
It was the late eighties and I was up late on a Saturday night and flicking channels and came across something that caught my eye, or my ear. Gilbert Gottfried. That voice I had to know what was going on. Well he was talking about horror movies. I was hooked. Every weekend I had to watch, usually both nights. Friday was hosted by Caroline Schlitt when I fist started watching but she was soon replaced by the insanely sexy Rhonda Shear. Let me tell you when your ten or eleven and this sexy ass woman is talking about Troma films or Return of the Living Dead, lets just say Rhonda taught me what a boner was. I have the fondest memories of this show. I saw Attack of the Killer Tomato's, The Toxic Avenger, Shocker, Cannibal Woman in the Avocado Jungle of Death and so many more. I wish I could get a time machine and go back to this. The feeling I had every weekend in indescribable. I have attempted to find copies of some old episodes of these but it just hasn't been that fruitful. I have a few random ones and you can watch some clips online which are great but God Dammit I want every episode in special edition DVDs. Is that really to much to ask?
