“Open your mind to the possibility that they’re not bad movies… just misunderstood.”
Retro Con is pleased to add to our guest list the spellbinding Mr Lobo! Shrouded in mystique, this innovative horror host has presided over the nationally syndicated TV program CINEMA INSOMNIA for over 10 years. The show is parody of and homage to late night B-movie hosts of the 70′s and 80′s, with a touch of The Twilight Zone thrown in. A less-than-classic horror/sci-fi movie is featured each episode and Mr Lobo appears between segments to give his thoughts and ideas on it, and of course talk to his unresponsive houseplant Miss Mittens (and occasional other guests). Retro and fake commercials are also routinely shown, along with vintage movie trailers, convention footage, and anything else Mr. Lobo chooses to show you. It is a true multimedia experience!
