UNCLE PETE SEARCHES THE CRYPT FOR MORE "THINGS"

UNCLE PETE SEARCHES THE CRYPT FOR MORE “THINGS”

UNCLE PETE will be keeping an “eye” on things this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  And maybe even both eyes on the feature presentation, from 1961, it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops.  Mitchel Gordon (aka Gordon Mitchel) stars as Atlas (aka – Maciste), a strongman hero-type who comes to the aid of a villagers getting regularly chomped by a giant, one-eyed meanie in a nearby cave.  There’s also a lion, a bunch of guys with swords and an evil queen to round out our honest-to-goodness sword and sandal action picture.     From director Leonviola (all one word) and featuring Chelo Alonso, Vira Silenti, Aldo Bufi Landi and Little Fabio (who would grow up to be on the covers of many romance novels and in margarine commercials) and with music from the Rome Philharmonic Orchestra it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops.

UNCLE PETE VISITS THE CLONE FACTORY THIS WEEK

UNCLE PETE VISITS THE CLONE FACTORY THIS WEEK

Ride the rails and dodge the slasher this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  Join UNCLE PETE and El Vato for some surveying, re-cloning and a trip to a happening night spot with The Phantom Of Soho.  You may know the Phantom who sang the classic Love Me, and you may know the Phantom from the comics who fights evil-doers in the jungle and around the world, and you may even know the Funky Phantom who helps solve mysteries, but you probably don’t want to know this Phantom Of Soho.  Chief Inspector Patton (Dieter Borsche) has been called in to investigate some nasty murders taking place near a seedy nightclub.  The Zanzibar Club is filled with knife throwers, exotical type dancers and ladies who work the night shift and tend to be very friendly and maybe even a murderer.  A German-made film directed by F.J. Gotlieb and also starring Barbara Rutting as Claudia and Stanislav Ledinek as Gilyard, the club manager, it’s the 1964 feature – Phantom Of Soho.

UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO SURVEY THE DARK VAULT REMAINS

UNCLE PETE and El Vato take a walk to the site of the yet again destroyed DARK VAULT.  Then, it’s off to the Clone Factory to start re-building the DARK VAULT labor force for another reconstruction.  So join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 for the southern NY area (Binghamton and eastward, and westward to Corning and beyond!) and channel 1301 for all of northern PA too! Channel 99 for the Utica/Rome area, channel 30 in Champlain/Ogdensburg/Massena/Malone/Watertown (The North Country) and channel 2 for Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, and Plattsburgh and the surrounding areas.  With replays at midnight and 2AM.  For Ithaca, showtimes are 9PM and midnight on channel 13.  A favorite movie of Cramps lead singer Lux Interior, it’s our feature presentation – Phantom Of Soho.  Clones, murder, suspense, and UNCLE PETE layin’ down a little ditty on the harmonica, on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

A BLOOD MOON, A BLOODY MOVIE, AND UNCLE PETE IN A WAREHOUSE – PASS THE NIGHT TRAIN!!!

UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO FIND THE OLD TIME MACHINE

UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO FIND THE OLD TIME MACHINE

The longest lunar eclipse of the century is happening and it no doubt means the end of the world.  So let’s hope the end doesn’t come until after Saturday night so you have a chance to watch one more episode of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN! And UNCLE PETE has an appropriate movie all about the end of humanity.  Get on board the Night Train To Terror!  It’s a free trip for all viewers this week as God and Satan ride the train (in first class, of course) and discuss the redeeming and unredeemimg qualities of man.  What follows is a compilation of three films whittled down to three short stories of terror, horror, and general nastiness.  First up is The Case Of Harry Billings, a gory tale of organ harvesting in an insane asylum.  Next is The Case Of Gretta Connors about an exclusive club for death fanciers.  Then finally there’s The Case Of Claire Hanson which pits an apprentice of Satan against some nicer immortal types out to stop the destruction of  mankind.  Some of the featured players include Cameron Mitchell, John Phillip Law and a man billed as Charles Moll, known better as Richard Moll, who played the lovable, clueless court bailiff Bull in TV’s Night Court (although he’s anything but lovable in this film).  And according to the credits there’s also God – played by Himself, and Satan – played by Lu Sifer.

Perhaps the most terrifying part of the film is the party going on in another car on the train featuring 80’s style pop dance music and some actual 80’s dance culture hairstyles and clothes (I shudder just thinking of it).

UNCLE PETE AND MAX ENJOY A MUSICAL INTERLUDE

UNCLE PETE AND MAX ENJOY A MUSICAL INTERLUDE

UNCLE PETE is rummaging through a warehouse behind one of the VITOSHACK (tm) Outlets and has discovered a treasure trove of many wonderful things including the old time machine he built back in Mad Scientist Junior High.  Max is there, and El Vato pops in during the reading of some viewer mail.  There’s also a Scopitone music video of Della Reese singing If I Never Get To Heaven.

So join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301for all of southern NY from way past Corning westward to way past Binghamton eastward and also all over northern PA, channel 99 in and around Utica/Rome, channel 30 for the North Country (Watertown, Champlain, Massena, Malone, Ogdensburg are around those places), and channel 2 for the Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake areas.  Don;t forget the replays at midnight and 2AM too.  And rumor has it that we may be coming soon to another upstate/central NY area where a well-known state university resides (stay tuned for more on this good news!).  It’s the generally forgotten (and maybe with good reason) 1985 feature Night Train To Terror on the next THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And meanwhile on Beta Max TV on Roku, it’s It Can Be Done, Amigo!  on all Roku devices and Roku TVs!)

CRIME AND UNCLE PETE – PRACTICALLY TWINS!!!

•July 21, 2018 • Leave a Comment

UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO DISCUSS THE WHO’S WHO OF CRIME

THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN gets criminal and UNCLE PETE gets a lollipop this week for the showing of the 1972 Italian Mob Thriller – Crime Boss.  It stars Telly Savalas as Don Vincenzo, the tough, ruthless, cultured head of The Family, and Antonio Sabato as Antonio Mancuso, a somewhat successful hood from Sicily with ambitions of criming it up in the big time.  Antonio makes the trek from Sicily to mainland Italy where he teams up with his cousin Nicola (Giuliano Persico), a gainfully employed small time pimp.  Antonio makes a big enough splash that he gets to meet the Don and is given a chance in the organization as an entry-level member.  But Antonio has his sights set  on Don Vincenzo’s job and his daughter Monica (Paolo Tedesco).  Will Telly stand for this?  Find out this week in the DARK VAULT!  From director Alberto DeMartino with a killer score from Francesco DeNasi, it’s Crime Boss.

UNCLE PETE DOES A KOJAK

Back at the vault, UNCLE PETE and El Vato have a discussion about the lineages and fine points of the world of crime.  And UNCLE PETE channels Kojak with an eyeball pop while finding time to bring you a load of trailers and Popeye meeting with some ghosts and stuff in 1954’s Fright To The Finish.

So grab your spinach and your Tootsie Roll pops and join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 in Binghamton, Montrose/Sayre, Corning/Elmira/Hornell and all of southern NY and northern PA, channel 99 in Utica/Rome, channel 30 in the North Country, and channel 2 in the Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake areas.  And as always, replays at midnight and 2AM.  For Ithaca, NY, show times are 9pm and midnight on channel 13.  Who loves ya Telly?  We Do!!! It’s Crime Boss, the feature presentation on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

UNCLE PETE GETS UNDOMESTICATED – IT’S WILD RIDE WEEK!!!

UNCLE PETE DOES AN UN-BUILD OF THE DARK VAULT HOT ROD

UNCLE PETE DOES SOME INVESTIGATIN’ AND RESTORATIN’ ON THE DARK VAULT HOT ROD

Saturday the 14th – a scary, mysterious day!  SO LET’S GET WILD!!!  And go for a ride.  Join UNCLE PETE for a little bit of all that kinda stuff as he presents the 1960 counterculture hot rod film – The Wild Ride.  It stars Georgianna Carter, Robert Bean, and Carol Bigby.  And a guy named Jack Nicholson as a hard-nosed anti-society dirt track racer who loves partying and rebelling and being number one – no matter what the cost to others. There’s drinkin’, fightin’, playin’ chicken (and I’m not talkin’ about Charlotte), and all sorts of mayhem in director Harvey Berman’ s The Wild Ride.

     Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE hits the Dark Vault Garage to do some fine tuning on The Dark Vault Hot Rod and try to find out what the heck that funny noise is in the engine. Along the way he finds time to bring you the 1954 Popeye car-toon Taxi Turvy and our favorite cartoon cutie – Betty Boop – hoppin’ in her race car (with a cold) in Ker Choo. Plus, we’ve got some good advice for all you JD Hot Rodders out there in Road Runners.

CHICKEN SOUP AND CARBURETORS DON’T MIX

The Dark Vault Hot Rod has been tearin’ up the pavement this summer and with a little tweakin’, she’ll be rumblin’ by the end of the show.  But in the meantime, join UNCLE PETE and the DVHR this Saturday night, July 14, 2018 from 10PM to midnight (and again at midnight and 2AM) on channel 1301 for Binghamton, northern PA, and the Corning/Elmira/Hornell areas, channel 99 for the Utica/Rome area, channel 30 for the North Country and channel 2 for the Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake areas.  And channel 13 is the place to be for the Ithaca, NY area at 9PM and midnight.  It’s the remastered version of The Wild Ride, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And for you ROKU runners watching us on Beta Max TV, tune in for War Of The Robots.   See more details at http://www.betamaxtv.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/BetaMaxTV/)

TOP FUEL DRAGSTERS IN HEELS – UNCLE PETE’S IN TROUBLE AGAIN!!!

•July 7, 2018 • Leave a Comment

UNCLE PETE PLUNKS A FEW BANJO LICKS FOR THE ITALIAN POLICE

The nice weather brings out the nice cars and drag racing will happen from time to time.  But cars in gowns and heels?  Well…not exactly.  But on the next episode of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN, UNCLE PETE will have some drags.  It’s the 1984 Italian comedy-action-thriller Cop In Drag.  It stars our old buddy Tomas Milian once again as Inspector Nico Giraldi – the very unorthodox but very effective major crime investigator.  Now, most cop-type movies feature a lot of men in blue.  And there are a lot of men here.  And they’re in blue, except it’s a club called The Blue Gay.  The star singer/female impersonator at the club is murdered and Nico is called in on the case.  It’s decided that he’ll go undercover, so he and friend Venticello (played by Bombolo) set up house keeping with Venticello in drag as Nico’s wife (despite the title, Nico never does go in drag).  Along the way they find that there’s a lot more than just murder going on.  It’s songs and big production dance numbers and as much comedy as action!  With Olimpia DiNardo as Nico’s wife Angela, Cop In Drag is the eleventh film for Milan and director Bruno Corbucci.

HOMING ROBOT SPEEDS TO THE RESCUE!

     Meanwhile, the missing UNCLE PETE has surfaced in Italy and run afoul of the Italian police.  After winding up in Rome, Italy instead of Rome, NY again (someday they’ll get this right), he’s being held in the investigation of one of the many destructions of THE DARK VAULT – a truly international incident if ever there was one.  Emptying out his pockets for the police, he manages to send Homing Robot off to find El Vato so the emergency DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN show can air.  In addition to a few choice trailers, there’s a very informative piece from the St. Paul (Minnesota) law enforcement gang (and others) all about crimes and what to do with them.  Be sure to look for UNCLE PETE’S wood handled screwdriver in one of the scenes.

A PERPLEXED EL VATO AND THE HOMING ROBOT

So join us this Saturday, July 7, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 for Binghamton, southern NY from way east of Binghamton to way west of Corning, and northern Pennsylvania, channel 99 around Utica and Rome, channel 30 for the North Country (Watertown, Champlain, Massena, Malone, Ogdensburg), and channel 2 for the Plattsburgh, Saranac and Tupper Lake areas.  And don’t forget we now have encore presentations at midnight and 2AM.  And for the Ithaca, NY area, watch us on channel 13 from 9PM – 11PM and again from midnight  to 2AM.  (There’s still a rumor of us coming to a new area in central NY – stay tuned for more on that).  Be there this Saturday as UNCLE PETE, Homing Robot and El Vato bring you Cop In Drag, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And don’t forget you can also watch THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN on Beta Max TV on the ROKU streaming devices.  This week’s new addition is Destroy All Planets with everybody’s favorite turtle, Gamera.  More info at http://www.betamaxtv.com/)

SUMMER – THE PERFECT TIME FOR UNCLE PETE AND AN ALIEN INVASION!!!

•June 30, 2018 • Leave a Comment

UNCLE PETE RETURNS TO AN ALIEN INVADED DARK VAULT

What better way to celebrate summer than with an alien invasion!  Well, maybe there may be better ways, but it doesn’t matter.  An alien invasion it is!  Join UNCLE PETE as he brings you the Man Of Strongest Steel (no, not El Vato), that flying fighter from the Emerald Planet – Starman in the 1965 Sci-Fi Thriller – Attack From Space.  Renowned scientist Dr. Yamanaka has been kidnapped by the Sappherions and they’re forcing him to use his new spaceship for their plan to conquer Earth.  The people of the Emerald Planet know that a plan like that ain’t no good, so they send Starman (Ken Utsui) to defend the Earth.  Originally shown as two episodes of the Starman series and also starring Minoru Takada, Chisako Hara, and Minako Yamada, it’s Attack From Space.

THE HIGH COUNCIL OF THE EMERALD PLANET

Alien evil is also afoot in The Dark Vault too.  Returning home, UNCLE PETE finds the Vault emptied except for rat buddy Dino, Milton the Tiki Mask, and Stone Dog.  With faithful Stone Dog’s help, he tracks down the problem – an invasion by those outer space troublemakers, the Radonians.  They’ve even disrupted our hi-priced color camera!  So UNCLE PETE and Stone Dog team up to vaporize some alien butt.  But battling aliens doesn’t stop UNCLE PETE from digging up some great music videos from the 50’s Highteens, Telepathys, Hikeshu, and Rockin’ Enocky as well as some groovy trailers.

UNCLE PETE AND STONE DOG DISCOVER PROOF OF ALIEN NASTINESS

So tune in for Attack From Space and the battle for humanity (or at least UNCLE PETE’S place) this Saturday, June 30, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 for Binghamton’s viewing area eastward, westward past Corning/Hornell/Elmira and for all of northern Pennsylvania, on Utica/Rome’s channel 99., the North COuntry’s channel 30, and Plattsburgh, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake’s channel 2.  Don’t forget, we have encore showings at midnight and 2AM.  And in Ithaca, NY it’s channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  So it’s all night TV and aliens in the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  (And watch for more new episodes – they all shot, just awaiting final puttin’ together!)
