Description by OLDIES.com:

Mister Lobo celebrates 20 years of hosting his show Cinema Insomnia. In the tradition of those classic horror shows like Chiller Theatre and Creature Features, host Lobo appears in brief vignettes between segments of the "late late night movie." Various and sundry wacky characters have appeared over the show's two-decade run – including houseplant sidekick Miss Mittens. There are even satirical commercials, like the ever-popular 'Rad Adams: Skateboard Attorney.' Cinema Insomnia has been seen on hundreds of local television and cable channels, and Lobo continues to be a regular guest at conventions like Wondercon and Monster Bash. He was even parodied in an episode of Scooby-Doo. Known as an advocate for "Bad Movies", Mr. Lobo lives by the motto, "They're not bad movies...just...misunderstood."

Do you need a frontal LOBO-tomy? Mr. Lobo presents The Brain That Wouldn't Die, the drive-in cult classic featuring that iconic talking head – dubbed "Jan in The Pan" by the MST3K gang! An arrogant young surgeon scours strip clubs to find the perfect body for his wife's severed head - kept alive in a roasting pan! Now bitter and telepathic, the brain (or is it head?) that wouldn't die communicates with the gruesome mutant behind the laboratory door to plot revenge! This classic 2002 episode (newly remastered) features internet horror host "Ghoulguy" as the voice of a mad doctor, model-actress Amber Kloss as a "naughty" nurse, and the world's first ever trans-plant using an actual house plant! Plus, Lobo interviews B-movie legend Bruce Campbell – "Ash" of Evil Dead fame! It's over 2 hours of zany skits, retro trailers, vintage commercials and slumber party fun brought to you through the miracle of BLOOD-O-VISION!
