Oy Vey!


Can you believe it? It's almost PURIM!

What does that mean to The Son of Madblood, you ask? Just listen:


And The Son of Madblood still doesn't have a costume! Lucky for him - help is around the corner....

Shtick, however - is the ONE thing The Son of Madblood has plenty of...

The other ONE thing The Son of Madblood has plenty of is: CHOICES. Well... choices for What To Watch On The Next Episode, at least. Yes - The Son of Madblood can pick his friends (and still have none), he can pick his nose (he does plenty of that - which is probably why he hasn't any friends) - but he can't pick his friends' noses because he hasn't got any. Friends, that is... So, c'mon - be a friend to The Son of Madblood and help us pick: What To Watch On The Next Episode! No noses need be picked in the process. It is as easy as picking your own nose, however. Just ask The Son of Madblood.. Wait - that's why The Son of Madblood is asking YOU - because it wasn't as easy as picking his nose! Oh nooooooose.....

Take yer pick... outta my nose!

For you - we make it easy... As easy as 1, 2, 3... 4, 5....6..? For you - we give choices... For you.. For Purim. Our gift to you... It's our Mitzvah... And it's right there in the side-bar under the Tinnitus Treats - The Son of Madblood's: What Do YOU Want To See On The Next Episode? Poll... Choose away... Or send us a comment with a choice of your own - we're open-minded! We're open-minded 24/7 (minus 1 hour per day for cleaning - and from sundown Fridays to Saturday nights when we aren't allowed to turn our minds on unless we can get a shabbos goy to do it for us)...


click your clicker on theses for some worth-framin' kicks...

These are the round one choices and they're all pretty choice: John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness (aka John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness), HG Lewis' The Wizard of Gore (in honor of the recent showing of The Godfather of Gore documentary), Lucio Fulci's City of the Living Dead (aka The Gates of Hell - not to be confused with the entrance to Madblood Manorette), John Carpenter's The Fog (ok - so we've rolled out the red carpe(n)t-er...) and Fred Walton's (?) 1979 When A Stranger Calls (in honor of.... telephone calls!) In case you think this list is a little loaded towards a particular director - just remember: Jesus was a Carpenter... Oh - if I had a hammer... But - if you have trouble deciding - vote more than once! It's the American Way! And if you have trouble deciding on your Purim costume - get some tips from The Nicest Guy The Son of Madblood Knows - The Nicest Guy knows best because he's also The Bestest!

The Nicest Guy's Bestest Purim costume... heeb - I mean heed - his advice!

Depending on how the voting goes and what we happen to see or not see in the meantime - there just may be a round 2 of What Do YOU Want To See On The Next Episode? before The Son Of Madblood Purim Special - coming soon! (This Episode has not yet been rated - or scheduled - but WILL happen towards the end of THIS MONTH! After all - it is the month of The Son of Madblood March Madness...)

Tomorrow Is TODAY!

Forget The Past - The Son of Madblood Brings Presents!

for you.. with love from The Son of Madblood...

Yes, kids - this time The Son of Madblood is not late to the party. Did I say "party"? I meant "par-tay"... Or did I mean "butter"? No - this par-tay is better than butter! And it's happening TODAY. Unless today is not Friday March 11th. Because today - Friday March 11th (hopefully, for your sake, still today) is the day that - here in the town The Son of Madblood calls hell - I mean home - Anthology Film Archives is screening the new documentary: Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore at 7pm. That, in itself, isn't so much of a party - considering it is playing a whopping 3 days (no offense meant to The Son of Madblood's Italian-American friends) along with such HGL greats as Blood Feast, Something Weird and Scum of the Earth. But what makes today's showing - Friday March 11th at 7pm - is that director Frank Henenlotter and the Drive-In demon of the Double-D's - Joe Bob Briggs - will both be in attendance! Heroes in da house! Needless to say - I've gotta make this Madblog post a short one so Igor and I can take our portable hammocks and some ham-hocks over to Anthology and camp out for tickets...

You willlll go... you willlll.... Ishtar wills you!

But not before I, the Son of Madblood, bring a little something to the par-tay for you to enjoy (besides my ham-hocks - Igor's busy enjoying those) - an all-new Tinnitus Treats chosen especially for this party-riffic occasion: The Eye Popping Sounds of Herschell Gordon Lewis! Yes, kids - it's a party for you... with love from The Son of Madblood... It's all here: all the tragic kettledrums of Blood Feast - remember - they warned you; all the Yeeeeeee-Ha!'s of 2000 Maniacs! - you'll hear how Robert E. Lee broke his musket on his knee and that the South's gonna rise again... You get all the wife-swapping sounds of Suburban Roulette - but don't worry, baby - I'll love your sister tomorrow night... And you'd better Get Off The Road for those She-Devils on Wheels - bug off or you'll find that you have blown your mind! And the party really kicks in as they'll huff and they'll puff then they'll blow your house up - Just For The Hell Of It - it's Destruction! You're better off dead... if you don't click on the cover of this Tinnitus Treats gift from The Son of Madblood and get your party started. Just be sure to bring that party over to Anthology Film Archives at 7pm tonight - Friday March 11th and show HGL, Frank and Joe Bob how much you care... The Son of Madblood will be there - in a raincoat... No, really - it's a stormy night to be hammocking it with a hunch-back...

these and a hunch-back in your hammock would keep anyone warm..

And stay tuned, kids - for the next edition of The Son of Madblood "What Do You Want To See On The Next Show?" poll... The choices are really piling up over here at the Manorette... The Son of Madblood has piles! Of choices for you, that is.... Coming up for The Son of Madblood March Madness!

We Mean Bid'ness!

And We Got Cards To Prove It!

That's right, kids; we've been hard at work printing these up the old-fashioned way - missionary style - here at the Madblood Manorette. So take a gander - a sneak-peak - at our all-new business-type cards (in 'real life' the type is Blood Red and the card is not pink.. really):

this is the front....


and this is the 'b' side....


You read it right, attentive Madblood fan(s)! The Son of Madblood is getting Out Of The Lab! After all these years - all these long and lonely, lonely years - we've finally gotten up the gumption to venture beyond the comfort-filled confines of the 3 hallowed walls of Madblood Manorette (we broke the 4th wall sometime during our first show)... We're steppin' out! Ok, baby steppin' out, maybe - but out we go, nonetheless: from the stale and, mostly, dead-air echo chamber-of-horrors that we call "home" - to the wondrous, glistening clean (as opposed to the kind of glistening usually found in the Manorette) and non rat-infested playland of Manhattan Neighborhood Network, Studio 2! Live! In Color! And ON TV! And that's real TV.. really. No - really. You see, all these years that we've been telling you we were on TV.. well, we were.. wrong about that. Well, we weren't really wrong - we just.. kinda.. well.. we were lying... Or, let's just say - we thought if we believed - you'd believe.. Ok - it was a con game.. But it's over! No more lies! The truth will be televised! Witness to the truth!

The Son of Madblood on MNN... AMEN!

Oh - don't worry too much, die-hard fans of The Son of Madblood. And you do die-hard if you're still fans... No, we won't be giving up our lie of a life that easily - we'll still continue to pretend to be on pretend TV at the humble Madblood Manorette - bringing you the finest in Horror-Film entertainment and the not-so-finest of our own brand of "Entertainment" - as regularly as we regularly do... Does The Pope shit in the woods? If he's regular he does... And we're as regular around here as the next guy - or the next Pope - and Igor is even more regular than that.. He goes like goin' was goin' out of style! And if you know Igor then you know he's got style to burn.. It's just lucky for the rest of us that he's also got plenty of matches to burn...

Two of Igor's regular "styles": digging for matches in his pocket (l.) and choking the chicken (r.)

That's right, kids - our un-regularly scheduled "show" will go on... and on and on and on and on... If you've ever seen it then you know what I mean... Right here in the same old dilapidated digs where you're all so fond of wondering just what it is you're sitting in that's so sticky... Yes, The Son of Madblood and his Gang will still be up to their old schtick - showing you their favorite Horror Movies and making a mess of the, already non-too-clean, Manorette. Our new and improved actual televised television show - The Son of Madblood: Out of the Lab! - will be flogging a dead horse of a different color... even if that color is still BLOOD RED! We'll be coming to you live from the spacious and well-equipped MNN Studio 2 - straight to your television or streaming web! I said "streaming" not "steaming"! It's a talk show with your Host, The Son of Madblood; his co-host, Brain; and trusty Igor manning the telephone call-in lines! And our new (and improved) in-studio Announcer - Don Pardonemoi! There will be Special Guests to be interviewed, live bands performing in the studio, acts of all persuasions and plenty of our regular Gang dropping by to lend a hand or have one removed. And we'll be talking about Horror Movies instead of showing them... And did we say - live telephone call-ins? There will be those. Please. Somebody's gotta call in. You will, won't you? Somebody's bound to... And that's just part of all the excitement! You won't want to miss it - just as soon as we get it running. And we're getting it running. Stay tuned to this station for more news as it becomes less available... Live, from New York, it's..... The Son of Madblood: Out of the Lab!

Home is where the heart-transplant is....

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.....

Yes, kids - the Seasons change.. But The Son of Madblood stays the same: cold, bitter, arduous, wearing and goes on way too long... If you don't like the weather, stick around a while... And we apologize in advance for the sticky seats - there hasn't been a lot to do around here lately. Yep - it's time once again for The Son of Madblood March Madness! We'll be marching it out to you, for your pleasure, this Month. It is March and that's what we do. Albeit to a different drummer. And what will this March Madness bring? April showers bring May flowers and what does Madblood bring in March? Whatever it is - it'll be golden.

Siwwy Wabbit.. Tricks are for pros...

Shall it be something St. Patrick's-y? Sorry, but the Leprechaun movies have already been voted down. Q: The Winged Serpent and Maniac Cop both involve the St. Patrick's Day Parade... Are there any scary Easter Bunny movies out there? Night of the Lepus doesn't count as scary - although there are plenty of giant rabbits involved. Friend of The Son of Madblood, Benny, sent in his Top 10 Horror Movie List with just one title: Blue Chips. It works for March Madness, maybe - but it don't work for The Son of Madblood. We have standards around here. We also like Jazz Standards. But what will we show? The Gang here at the Manorette has been up til the wee hours watching movies to try to find the right one for our next Big Episode - although Igor spends most of the wee hours in the wee-wee room for some reason... We work hard so that you don't have to and we hardly work so you don't even have to do that. You can rest easy - you can sleep. Most of you sleep through the show, anyway!

The glasses make it easier to sleep...
