The Son of Madblood: New Spring Season Line-Up OF TERROR!

The Son of Madblood is poised and ready - coiled and eager to POUNCE! Yes - we're springing forward with our all-new line-up of horrific shows.. Wait, no - the shows aren't horrific - they're going to be great.. the movies, however - will chill and tremble you to a pulp!
In like a lion, out like a lamb - they say. But that's not us here at Madblood Manorette - we ALWAYS roar! April showers bring May flowers? At The Son of Madblood - April showers you with EVIL and brings MAY-HEM!
So - stay glued to your sets; riveted to your seats; bound to your barf-bags and clutch your popcorn tight: The Son of Madblood's Spring Season will shake you to your CORE!

Sunday, April 19th: Tobe Hooper's: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
The brutality of this so-called-Spring is a cake-walk compared to the brutality of this Texas-Summer sweat-drenched HORROR! With a capital "H", a capital "O", a capital "RROR"! If you haven't seen this classic - there is no way to prepare yourself for it.. You have been warned. Who will survive? And what will be left of them? (And we're referring to YOU - the audience!)
The Son of Madblood gang starts out the new season with a dedicatory show to the late, larger than life, Austin, TX legend - actor and raconteur Lou Perryman. He may have stolen the show in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 but he also helped get this first one made.. And, yes, we're buildin' him a little fry house...

(We choose NOT to run a trailer here for this one until AFTER the show - this should suffice)

For you followers of The Son of Madblood shows - this one's going to have a few changes to our normal way of running things (into the ground?).. How will it be different, you ask? You'll just have to come and see.. if you DARE!

Sunday, May 10th: Lucio Fulci's: Murderock! (aka: Dancing Death; aka Slashdance! - take your pick)
It's a dance-school of DEATH with spandex, headbands and a Keith Emerson soundtrack as relentless as the hat-pin wielding killer in this infectious Italian horror-giallo.. Just when you thought it was safe to listen to Eighties-disco-pop!

(can you Son of Madblood regulars guess what cast members will be featured in this episode?)

It's The Son of Madblood meets Santa's Party House at Madblood Manorette tonight! Bring your dancin' shoes! DARE to DISCO!

Sunday, May 24th: The Son of Madblood's Special 3D Event! With: Friday the 13th - Part 3 - 3D!

We provide the glasses - you provide the screams! Dare you go camping in the 3rd Dimension with The Son of Madblood gang? There just may be someone - or something - in those woods...
We've been talking about this one for a while - don't DARE miss it!

The Son of Madblood has not forgotten you, Marilyn Chambers. Our thoughts and love are with you..

(Rip Torn, Nicholas Ray, and Marilyn Chambers - HOLY MOLY!)

and Rabid is on the way...

(this film contains, possibly, one of the best outfits EVER)

Stay tuned for MORE Son of Madblood mayhem!

The "Lost" Episode...

Yes - this was the Episode where The Son of Madblood almost lost his show to marauding Revolutionaries! Secessionists in the Laboratory! Anarchy all around! Turncoats! Spies in my soup!
What started as an innocent, amiable Dead-Presidents'-Day Celebration quickly devolved into debauchery on all sides... et tu, Igor? Stabbed in the back by the most trusted of Hunchbacks...
It's hard to fault him, however - the Lab was ripe with the noxiously nefarious emissions emanating from a particular Brain in a bowl claiming Eminent Domain! His blood lust overtook allies and swayed our happy home to frenzy and panic... The result: B.A.R.F. - Brain's Armed Revolutionary Faction.. A coup disguised as a bid for Independence!
In the end:
One Dead President, dead again - Lincoln assassinated! Left dying in The Son of Madblood's arms - loving the Theater till the very End...
A second Dead President, barely escaping with his dignified Death intact as a would-be-assassin's bullet just misses Andrew Jackson's dead heart. His valiant efforts to quell the Revolution did not go unrewarded as...
A third Dead President stepped triumphantly in: the Rough Rider, himself - Teddy Roosevelt! He and his big stick put the miscreants in their place.. The Son of Madblood show was saved!
And all through this turmoil the audience feasted: on Herschell Gordon Lewis's Two Thousand Maniacs and Kentucky Fried Chicken!
All was not lost.... The Son of Madblood goes on!

Yeeeeeeeee Haw!

Y'all come back, now, ya hear? The Son of Madblood returns with an all-new Spring Season Terror-filled lineup!
