MORE ALIEN TROUBLE (AND WOODCRAFT)
Just like at Summer Camp, UNCLE PETE will show you some handicrafts and how to save the Earth this Saturday in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN. Join UNCLE PETE and EL VATO as they discuss the never-ending reconstruction of the DARK VAULT and bring you the feature presentation – Killers From Space! Peter Graves, before starring in Mission Impossible, starred here as Dr. Douglas Martin (yeah, Doc Martin), an atomic scientist. After his plane crashes during a flight over a recent atomic test site, he’s found wandering dazed (we know how that is) with no recollection of what happened (we know how that is too) and with a mysterious scar on his chest. The FBI, suspicious of atomic scientists with memory loss and strange scars, takes him off his project. Angered, Martin steals some data sheets, takes off and crashes his car (an obvious bad insurance risk kinda guy). While drugged in the hospital, he recalls being captured by aliens who plan to take over the Earth using huge bugs and lizards created from atomic energy gathered from the tests. There are gigantic crawly things and bug-eyed aliens a-plenty in this 1954 release (re-released in 1956). Directed by W. Lee Wilder and written by his son Miles (who also had a hand in many classic TV shows including McHale’s Navy and CPO Sharkey), it’s Killers From Space!
Meanwhile, back at the Vault, UNCLE PETE and El Vato discuss the rebuilding plans of the Dark Vault and bring you a short created by the Air Force called Wings for Roger Windstar. And then it’s out to the Dark Vault Transmitter storage-shack/woodshop/woodshed/smokehouse for a little woodcraft and power saw fun. Who knows what will emerge from that combination!
It’s sawdust, sharp objects, egg-shell eyed aliens and giant reptiles this Saturday, July 30, 2016, at from 10PM to midnight on Binghamton’s channel 4, Sayre’s channel 17, and Elmira/Corning/Hornell’s and Utica/Rome’s channel 99 (with rebroadcasts at midnight and 2AM) as UNCLE PETE presents Killers From Space on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!! (And for all you Roku users who watch us on the BetaMax TV channel – this Saturday night at 10PM it’s Tomas Milian and Jack Palance in the action packed crime drama Cop In Blue Jeans!)
