Description by

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.” Each episode begins with Mr. Lobo promising to screen a bonafide horror classic, only to have the rug pulled out from under him when he is told that a cheap public domain movie has to be shown instead. Various and sundry wacky characters have appeared over the show's two-decade run – including Lobo’s houseplant sidekick, Miss Mittens. There are even satirical commercials, like ‘Rad Adams: Skateboard Attorney’ and ‘Hörsenmilken Hörsenbutteren.’ Cinema Insomnia has been seen on local and cable TV, and Lobo continues to be a regular guest at conventions like Monster Bash and Retro Con. Beloved as an authority on "Bad Movies", Mr. Lobo lives by the motto, "They're not bad movies...just...misunderstood."

In this bizarrely premised film directed by Albert Band (father of Full Moon impresario Charles) Have Gun Will Travel’s Richard Boone becomes manager of a cemetery, only to discover that whenever he places black pushpins instead of white on the cemetery’s map…the owner of the plot dies! Is he losing his mind, or has Paladin somehow gained control over life and death? Some viewers say I Bury the Living reminds them of The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits, but it’s more like a third season Night Gallery…or maybe one of those “lost” episodes of One Step Beyond. And just like in the film, Mr. Lobo inherits a cemetery, except that when he puts a black pin on the map, it’s a cheesy TV personality that dies - meaning horror hosts from all over the world like Bunny Galore from London, Nigel Honeybone from Sydney, and Roxsy Tyler from Philadelphia! Lobo’s in trouble this time! Plus the usual grindhouse trailers, corny commercials, mouth-watering drive-in snackbar ads, and cutie pie Jessie Seeherman as the UNLucky Reel 7 Girl!
