Caturday’s Astrophenia | Tonight: Doctor Madblood’s Halloween Scream 2016


Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 21.10.01

This evening at 10:00 p.m. EDT airs the annual Doctor Madblood’s Halloween Scream at whro.org/madblood. This year’s movie will be the director’s cut of the original Night of the Living Dead.

Zombies! The Shambling Dead! How cool is that??

*braiinsss…*

Ahem.

To me, the skits involving the Madblood gang are the best part, but the movie is okay as well if you like the quintessential film by George Romero! The skits take place at Madblood Manor, the home of retired mad scientist Doctor Maximillian Madblood and his monsters.

Pungo Virginia’s resident vampire, Count Lacudra (Dracula spelled sideways 🙂 ) makes an appearance, as Madblood characters lighten the movie segments with humor.

A certain Ninth Doctor impersonator does not appear in the skits, only during the costume party scenes, which are very brief. There are Daleks though, thankfully not encountered by said Ninth Doctor impersonator, as being exterminated by an angry Dalek with only the Sonic as a defense would have been unpleasant. They were made of wood, and the Sonic doesn’t work on wood!

The other cosplayers, though, were brilliant, funny, and very nice people who made the early evening of September 25 enormously fun and memorable.

Enjoy the movie!

I’ll be minimalist on the text this fortnight, as #Snowzilla dumps ice crystals on the American northeast while I type this. I’m hoping that you are all comfortable and doing well wherever you are in the world, and whatever the weather. From my end, may you have a good morning and a happy Caturday. I’ll try the same, though still missing my fluffy old Rockykins terribly…
