ZOMBIES FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!!

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

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

With Thanksgiving just a week away, we here in THE DARK VAULT – being of a family oriented, sentimental kind of bent (or some kind of bent) – thought it would be appropriate to show a movie with families spending time together and throw in a sentimental walk down memory lane all about the mark (or perhaps blot) that UNCLE PETE has put on the television landscape over his long and legendary career.  So 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.

And since we’re in a festive celebratory kinda mood, we’ve got VITO GOLD himself to host the show and present a VITO GOLD Salute To UNCLE PETE:  50 Years Of Television Magic.  It’s a look at the (now) 50 plus years of UNCLE PETE’s television career spotlighting some of his pre-DVOPD shows including UNCLE PETE’s Cartoon Treats featuring a Croatian cartoon called Once Upon A Time; Public Perceptions with UNCLE PETE – a public affairs show highlighting an instructional ditty called A Snort History, and Uncle Pete’s Rock-O-Rama, a rock and roll extravaganza with an appearance from The Thirteenth Floor Elevators performing their hit You’re Gonna Miss MeVITO GOLD also has an episode of Kung Fu Alley starring UNCLE PETE and featuring 42nd Street Jimmy as they present our feature.

Plus we’ve remastered all this stuff to give you even better stuff like sound you can see and pictures you can taste (depending on your television).

So tune in this Saturday night, November 21, 2015, from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in Montrose/Sayre (PA), and channel 99 in Elmira/Hornell/Corning with replays at midnight and 2AM.  It’s Kung Fu Zombie, and a salute to 5 decades (or if you prefer, 50 years) of UNCLE PETE on TV, on the next installment of THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
