It’s Halloween and you know what that means! What? You don’t? Sheesh. Yeah, I should have expected that. Anyway, it is time for a long overdue appearance from The Tepid Zombie. For those of you who don’t know, and the many more who don’t care, Mr. Blog’s Tepid Zombie is what this blog would be (or will be) like after the zombie apocalypse and this blog is taken over by a zombie. (A slightly lazy, middle-aged zombie accountant, to be specific.)

Late Night Movie House: Monster Movie Ads and Trailers

17 Apr

Local TV used to be so cool. Now there is barely any local TV. I’m talking about the independent stations that had no network affiliation. The last one in NY was bought last year by CBS, so instead of cool classic TV reruns and old movies, we get CBS news anchors hosting cooking shows.

Progress. PFFFFFT!

Used to be channel 5 would show Kung-Fu movie double features on Sunday afternoons. Channel 11 used to do Abbott and Costello double features on Saturdays. Every Thanksgiving would bring 3 King Kong movies on Thursday and 3 Godzilla movies on Friday. On weekday afternoons you could find a week of Planet of the Apes films and anytime was a likely time to find a Dracula or Frankenstein film.

Almost as good were the TV Guide ads for those movies. TV Guide is now a slick magazine but it used to be a black and white digest full of ads like these:
