In the fine tradition of late night local horror hosts like Dr. Creep and A. Ghastlee Ghoul, a new show called Baron Von Porkchop’s Terrifying Tales of the Macabre is debuting on DATV Saturday, January 8th. Hosted by Baron Von Porkchop, the show will feature a film introduced by the cast and accompanied by skits throughout the evening.
“We are so happy to bring the viewers a show that is very much in the classic style of a horror host program, filled with bad movies and funny segments. We are honored to follow in the big footsteps of Dr. Creep and A. Ghastlee Ghoul in the Dayton area,” says writer, producer, director Matt Brassfield.
Brassfield is a local filmmaker who has worked with both Dr. Creep and A. Ghastlee Ghoul and helps organize Horrorama. Brassfield’s company, Bloodline Video recently co-produced a series of DVD reissues of Dr. Creep’s New Shock Theatre series.
The first episode of Baron VonPorkchop’s Terrifying Tales of the Macabre will air Saturday, January 8th at 12:00am on DATV Channel 5 and can be streamed live at www.datv.org. The episode will air again on Monday, January 10th at 1am. For more information, visit the show’s Facebook page.
