UNCLE PETE TALKS TO SHERMAN IN VITO-SAT 1 FROM THE DARK VAULT TRANSMITTER SITE

It’s week 2 of Spooky Scary month and if you’re headin’ up to the local make-out spot this weekend – beware!  You never know who might be watching – and with what size eyes!  Join UNCLE PETE, OXNARD, and MAX  as they broadcast from the DARK VAULT Transmitter Site this week to bring you the low-budget sci-fi thriller – The Eye Creatures.  A flying saucer is cruisin’ earth and the military is keeping an eye on it.  However, the first regular folks who spot it are some teenagers who frequent a favorite secluded area (where they no doubt discuss world affairs and school and like that).  It’s always good for a plot when teenagers spot the alien first, and these teenagers not only spot it first, but a couple of them wham into one with their car.  And guess what – nobody believes them (at least not for a while).

Directed by Larry Buchanan and starring John Ashley and Cynthia Hull – this 1965 release is a color remake of the 1957 film Invasion Of The Saucer Men and was never released to theaters but as part of a package of American International Pictures television releases.  Be sure to listen for the voice of Peter Graves as the uncredited narrator.

Meanwhile, back at The Dark Vault, UNCLE PETE and OXNARD enjoy some Barbecue sauce, read some viewer mail and have a few frosty cold beverages as they bring you a Bobby Vee video, a special on barbecuing and a whole bucket of trailers from the Dark Vault Transmitter located high above Lake Dark Vault.

So grab your leftover BBQ sauce and join UNCLE PETE for The Eye Creatures, this Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 10PM (with replays at midnight and 2AM) on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 99 in Corning/Hornell/Elmira and Utica/Rome, channel 17 in Sayre/Montrose, channel 30 in the North Country and channel 2 around the Saranac and Tupper Lake areas.  Someone (or something) will be watching for you this week on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And the new show this week at Beta Max TV (on the Roku system) is Killers From Space.)

VITO GOLD TAKES THE CONTROLS FOR A SOLID GOLD SALUTE THIS WEEK

VITO GOLD TAKES THE CONTROLS FOR A SOLID GOLD SALUTE THIS WEEK

October is here!  Spooky Scary Month!  That month with the sort-of holiday that causes stores to stock their shelves with black and orange candy in July.   A time for family (especially if your family is made up of ghouls and monsters).  So, to kick off the month, UNCLE PETE has decided to pull out one of our favorite zombie-family-vampire-kung fu-comedy-action movies on this week’s DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  It’s the 1982 gem – Kung Fu Zombie starring Billy Chong.

A shifty businessman has a grudge with our hero’s father and hires an evil magician to zombify a gang to settle the score.  But things go awry and our bad guy gets croaked and accidentally re-animated as a zombie himself.  Along the way, a vampire with a grudge makes the scene as well.  It’s good guys versus bad guys and zombies and a vampire versus everybody in a non-stop kung fu battle royale with a good dose of fun thrown in for good measure.  Directed by Hua I Hung and also starring Chan Lau and Chiang Tao, it’s Kung Fu Zombie.

UNCLE PETE HAS AN UNEXPECTED VISITOR

UNCLE PETE HAS AN UNEXPECTED VISITOR

Since Saturday is the last day of September, we in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN figure it must be some sort of special day.  We don’t know what (October Eve?), and probably never will.  But whatever Saturday is, join UNCLE PETE for a double feature of The Monster Walks and Broadway To Cheyenne.  In our first feature, The Monster Walks, Ruth Earlton (Vera Reynolds) learns her scientist father has died – or maybe been killed – so she heads to his spooky mansion with fiance Dr. Ted Clayton (Rex Lease).  Among those living in the house are Ruth’s Uncle Robert (Sheldon Lewis), a housekeeper, and her odd son Harris Crug (Mischa Auer).  There’s also the ape-type thing in the basement left over from Dad’s experiments.  Ruth inherited everything, but old Uncle Robert gets it all should Ruth expire.  A hairy monster hand trying to kill Ruth really gets things going.  But is it the primitive primate or is there another monster afoot?  From 1932 and also starring one of the busiest and most credited side-character actors ever, Willie “Sleep n’ Eat” Best, it’s The Monster Walks.

In Broadway to Cheyenne, NYC policeman “Breezy” Kildare (Rex Bell) is shot during a confrontation with bad guy Butch Owens (Robert Ellis).  While recuperating on his father’s ranch in Wyoming, Breezy finds the dirty rats from New York hiding out nearby and running a protection racket on the local ranchers.  It’s up to Breezy to show the thugs some western justice.  Also starring Marceline Day and legendary sidekick Gabby Hayes (as Walrus), likewise from 1932, it’s Broadway To Cheyenne.

Back at the Dark Vault, UNCLE PETE is plunked down in front of the viewing device.  While being accosted by a mysterious hand and having a little snort of a bar-b-cue cocktail, he digs up a Three Stooges commercial too.  So tune in this Saturday, September 30, 2017, from 10PM to midnight (with replays at midnight and 2AM) on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Sayre, PA), channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell and Utica/Rome), our new place, channel 2 in the Saranac and Tupper Lake areas, and channel 30 in the North Country (Champlain/Watertown/Ogdensburg/Massena/Malone).  It’s an October Eve double feature spectacular with The Monster Walks and Broadway To Cheyenne on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

(And for all you Beta Max TV viewers (on your Roku systems), this week you’ll see the car crashing DARK VAULT episode of Double Nickels newly arrived this Friday night!)
