DISASTER TIME!!! (AKA – JUST ANOTHER DAY WITH UNCLE PETE!)

UNCLE PETE AND MAX KEEP HEALTHY IN THE CRYPT

UNCLE PETE AND MAX KEEP HEALTHY IN THE CRYPT

Have you had your shots?  That’s the only thing that gets many viewers all the way through a DARK VAULT episode sometimes.  But this week, shots might not be a bad idea (you choose what kind) because there’s a nasty contagious bug in the THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN this week and it comes in the form of the 1980 big budget epic Virus. And UNCLE PETE’S bringing it to your house!

The special branch of government that deals with killer viruses (viri?) decides to send one on a plane that winds up crashing.  The extremely contagious, very deadly virus, for which there is no cure, is released.  It was an honest mistake.  Who could’ve foreseen a plane crashing or a virus getting out to end all life on Earth?  But not so fast!  The virus can’t survive in extreme cold (Binghamton and upstate New York are safe!). That means that the eight hundred-some scientists and staff in Antarctica and a submarine crew are still alive.  And now it’s up to them to not get contaminated and to keep the earth going in the midst of a big budget apocalypse.

Directed by Kinji Fukasaku, this was the most expensive Japanese film made at that time.  The all-star cast includes Chuck Connors, Masao Kusakari, Sonny Chiba, Glenn Ford, Robert Vaughn, Henry Silva, George Kennedy, Edward James Olmos, Bo Svenson, and Olivia Hussey.  It was filmed on location in Antarctica, Alaska, Halifax, Machu Pichu and features 2 real submarines and the real ocean.  It also bombed at the box office.  Which is why we have it here in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  This film not only contains more big name international stars than any of the usual DARK VAULT fare but the single film salary of any one of these stars is bigger than the entire budget of most of the movies we air.  Janis Ian wrote the lyrics for and performed the title theme song.  If that doesn’t make it a terrifying disaster movie, I don’t know what does!  Plus, the version we will be bringing you is one you won’t see anywhere else, exclusive to the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN! From 1980, it’s Virus.

CHUCK CONNORS TRIES TO CALL THE DARK VAULT THIS WEEK

CHUCK CONNORS TRIES TO CALL THE DARK VAULT THIS WEEK

UNCLE PETE and Max are exploring the Dark Vault Crypt where no virus would dare survive – although Max does have the sniffles.  And even though this is one of the newest, longest, and by far, the biggest budget movies we’ve shown in the DARK VAULT, UNCLE PETE still manages to dig up a couple of disaster flick trailers as well.  So prepare for a dose of disaster this Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 99 (Corning/Elmira/Hornell and Utica/Rome), channel 17 (Sayre/Montrose), channel 2 for the Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, and Plattsburgh areas and channel 30 (Ogdensburg/Massena/Malone/Champlain and Watertown) with replays at midnight and 2AM.  Check your local VITO SHACK ™ for a supply of the Vito Gold ™ Universal Anti-Virus Vaccine, and get inoculated (or intoxicated) for the 1980 disaster spectacular Virus, the next feature presentation on the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
