A Shiver Show Bonanza!

Howdy, y'all!

Boy oh boy - this has been one WILD month fer yer ol' Uncle Eerie and his creepy cohorts! So much has happened in the past 30 days, it's hard to know where to begin...!

But let's start with May 15th - a day that will truly live in INFAMY (for local PDXers, anyways)!

First off, we had a special live appearance by yours GHOULY, along with Dr. Z, Cousin Beau, Rose City Rudo, School Spirit, and The Monster Cheer Squad, as we entertained all of the Molly Ringworms and John Puss-sacks in attendance for the 3rd Annual "Pretty In Pieces" Portland Zombie Prom!!!

We drank, We danced, we told jokes, we waved giant metal phallic devices at hapless onlookers (don't ask), and all in all it was a glorious, Gore-ious good time for all involved! We're already looking forward to next year...!

Here's some photos...!


And - in a bizarre example of synchronicity - Sunday morning at midnight, the first episode of "UNCLE EERIE'S(MIDNIGHT) SHIVER SHOW" premiered on TVCTV Channel 21!!! The episode, "The Last Man On Earth" hit America (weeell, Washington County, OR), and response (from the 5 people watching Public Access television at midnight on a Sunday) was overwhelmingly positive. Three days later, The Shiver Show made it's Portland Metro debut on Comcast 11 and Verizon 22.

While the whole episode is not yet up online, you can catch clips from the show here:

AND - as a special surprise, this past week we premiered a special promo video for, which also signaled the first appearance by Uncle Eerie's friendly neighbor, Hook-Hand Hank! You can check out the clip here, too:

Tune In, Turn On, DROP DEAD! The Shiver Show PREMIERES!

Howdy, folks! It's yer ol' Uncle Eerie, here.

Hey - guess what time it is?

It's time to lock up yer liquor cabinet, hide your teenage daughters, and bury yer dead! 'Cuz Something Wicked This Way Comes!

...Coming to yer television, that is!!!

That right, fright fiends - the time has come! This Saturday, UNCLE EERIE'S (MIDNIGHT) SHIVER SHOW premieres on TVCTV Channel 21! And a mere four days later, It premieres in the Portland area on both Comcast Channel 11 AND Verizon Channel 22!

For the first time in a very long time, the Portland area will be blessed with their own TV Horror Host!

Hmm? What the hell IS a Horror Host, you ask...? Well, shame on you for not knowing! But if you must know, a Horror Host is longstanding part of Television history, informally starring in 1954 with the premiere of Vampira on "The Vampira Show", and rising in popularity throughout the 60's and 70's with such legendary personalities as Zacherley and Ghoulardi. In recent years there has been a real resurgence of local hosts, with almost every state hosting a slew of hosts on local television. These are young men, women, and otherwise, who combine a wry sense of humor with an UNDYING love of the Schlocky, Bizzare world of B-grade Cinema. They televise from their castles, dungeons, or laboratories, usually with a hunchbacked assistant or sexy Gal Friday, and offer up endless puns and innuendos in between showing some of the worst movies ever made!

Now, Portland has had their share of horror hosts in the past, most notably the original host Tarantula Ghoul (read more about her HERE). And even recent hosts such as Baron Von Goolo and Swinging Scary Larry have done their "Ghoul Thang" locally. But Uncle Eerie promises to be the first Host in over two decades to bring you regular late-night programming, every month!

So, what can you expect to see on Uncle Eerie's Shiver Show?

Well, how about:

*MONSTERS! We've got swamp creatures, mutant apes, werewolves, zombies, and more!

*COMEDY! Bad Puns! Slapstick! Double Entendre! SPLATstick! Topical Humor! Worse Puns! We've got it all!

*DRAMA! Heartbroken gorillas! Boxing mummies! Robot Existentialism!

*Sex! See Uncle Eerie, Portland Most Eligible Butcher!

*MOVIES! Films slated to air soon: "Last Man On Earth", "Curse of Bigfoot", "The Manster", "Robot Vs. Aztec Mummy", and "I Drink Your Blood"!

So if you're the kind of creep that stays up late, looking for something to wile away the empty hours of your lonely existence - then look no further! Uncle Eerie is here to make the pain go away!
