|Celebrate Christmas with WKNO-TV and horror movie hosts Professor Ghoul (Mike Degnan) and Shotzi the Vampire Cat (puppeteered and voiced by Bard Cole) with the special Professor Ghoul’s Horror School presentation of the 1964 sci-fi “B” movie Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
Professor Ghoul and special guests try to assure Shotzi that real Christmas wishes can come true, while featuring the 1964 film. In the film, which is often featured on “worst movies” lists, Martians kidnap Santa because there is nobody on their planet to give their children presents.
Professor Ghoul and Shotzi are joined by guest stars James Baker, Jim Eikner, Jared Herring, Michael Kline, Montanez Shepherd, and Lola Vee.
In addition, we will offer an encore presentation of Professor Ghoul Presents: I Was a Zombie for the F.B.I., featuring the 1982 made-in-Memphis film, on New Year’s Eve at 12:30 a.m., right after the live broadcast from Beale Street.
The weekly series Professor Ghoul’s Horror School debuted in June, 2012, and airs Fridays at 10:00 p.m. and Saturdays at midnight on WKNO/Channel 10.
