Description by OLDIES.com:
Shrouded in mystery, Mr. Lobo has hosted the nationally syndicated late-night TV series Cinema Insomnia
for over 18 years. The show has been seen in hundreds of television and cable markets. Mr. Lobo is a regular guest at conventions including Wondercon and Monster Bash, and is currently Master of Ceremonies at Blobfest. Known as an advocate for "Bad Movies", he lives by the motto, "They're not bad movies...just misunderstood."
For those of you who suffer from bee allergies, this one might sting a little! Insults and insects aside, Mr. Lobo hosts this 1959 Roger Corman cult classic full of sharp satire with a little sharp satire of his own. Janice Starling, supermodel turned super-mogul of a 'Mary Kay'-like cosmetics company, avoids the public once her looks - and her sales - start sagging! Hiring a mad beekeeper who experiments with royal wasp jelly to reverse aging, she overdoses on the sticky stuff, becoming the deadly Wasp Woman! This was Susan Cabot's last role, and her mysterious death in 1986 at the hands of her midget son tops anything Roger Corman could have come up with! Beauty may be only skin deep - but this episode is rotten to the core with movie trailers, drive-in surprises, vintage commercials and trashy retro TV thrills!
