All the best, Mr. Shreek, and may your Mom find peace, and I
know she is proud of your work on the wonders of
. . .
BLACK SKY CINEMA!
Let me know if there is anything I can do.
Shakey, The Shaman
Thanks for the update. I'm sorry to hear that you mother's condition is deteriorating, but
it sounds like you are handling it with strength, compassion, and dignity. I haven't been in the position to lose a
parent yet, but when the day comes, I hope that I can handle it as well as you are.
Looking forward to spending
another season under the Big Black Sky!
I am so sorry to hear about your mom. It must be a difficult time for
are with her.
I got the last batch of shows and will be getting to them next week.
Take care Shreek
(This is from Tammy Faye Baker-Tv evangelist)
your Mom that I am praying for her. My heart aches for her. I have had cancer 3 times & understand what it
is to hurt & be afraid. You see my friend, I KNOW there is a God who loves us all just the way we are. He
cares about your Mom & he sees you there trying your best to take care of her & help her. God wants to help
you BOTH! He knows how tired & drained you are. And He cares! Shreek, why not ask God to help you.
Just try talking to God tonight. You can tell him you don't believe in Him, you can tell him anything -- ask him to
make your Mom feel better. He can do that you know. Hey MAN somebody had to make that grasshopper! How much
harder would it be to make US! Remember that "big black sky" also has a beautiful moon & stars in it!
think it's a harder job not to believe than it is to believe!
I wish I were there to help you with your Mom.
I too have had spinal tumors that cause terrible pain so I understand. Hey Shreek, go over to your Mom & why don't
you & her talk to God together & see what happens!
I've screamed & yelled at God. I've asked
Him WHY God WHY? I've laid on the floor & have cried until I didn't think I had anymore tears. When my little
tirade was all over I could hear His voice whispering to my heart
"fear thou not for I am with thee
be not dismayed for I am thy God
I will strengthen thee, I will help thee
uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness"
Shreek, why don't you
go buy a "Living Bible" for you & your Mom. It's easier to understand then the King James version & just read
1 verse a day for a while -- start with the book of John.
Oh & when those "northern lights" get to flashing
pink, blue, green, lavender -- hey maybe it's God reminding us that He's up there!
From an old gal from Minnesota
- International Falls to be exact, I'm praying for you and your Mom!
Love to you both
a nice note from Tammy Faye, Shreek. Isn't it nice to know others really do know what you are going through. I certainly
I lost both my parents at 23 within six months of each other and then my only living grandparent six months after
that. My mother and grandmeother died suddenly but my dad, like your mom, died of lung cancer.
It is not a
pleasant way to die. I was very angry, especially at God, for letting all this happen to me and them. I had so much
guilt as you do about not being able to make things easier for dad. When he died I felt, well just empty. But
you know, twenty some years later, I now see ALL the wonderful lessons and gifts that came out of the experiences was well.
I KNOW this will happen for you too.
Right now, you need to realize what a gift you have been and are to your mom.
There is nothing you can do to change her health issues. They're hers alone. And as far as health care right now
goes, you're doing the right thing. There is no way you could give her better care. She is out of pain and THAT'S
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! Just be there for her. Even when my dad was mostly gone, he always knew I was there.
Just hold her hand and let her know you love her!!!
That's the one thing I regret the most. I didn't tell my folks
I loved them as much at the end as I should have. Even if it's uncomfortable, TELL YOUR MOM YOU LOVE HER A LOT!
Love has great healing powers!
Take it for what it's worth, but there are a lot of people here at NWCT praying for you
and your mom. When bad things happen to volunteers here, this place becomes a neat little family of sorts. Do
know too how much your show means to your mom. Don't give it up now. We'll just run re-runs until your ready.
What a great tribute to your mom...continuing the show she is so proud of.
Stay in touch, Shreek. Hug your Mom for
all of us and give Princess a big snuggle.
Just wanted to write and tell you how sorry i am to hear about your mother.
bless you and your mom,you both will be in my prayers!!
Best Always, Scary Steve

Hi Shreek--I just want to let you know that I got the
tape (Thanks!) and I would like to profile you guys in
of the next couple issues.
I have another one lined up first, but I don't know if
it will be in the summer or fall issue. When I do, I
get back to you.
Might I suggest an intervention for Me Zombie? Might
go well with House on Haunted Hill!
Just wanted to compliment you on the new shows. I love the new bits and
characters. The skull heads were
I really like seeing Mr Shreek and his friends more often.
The movies are great too! I love Gorgo...
up the great work...

history in horror hosting.
My name is Dave and I recently became aware of your shows and am now a huge fan.
I wish I'd of known about
these old-time movies years ago!! As I said, I just recently started watching.......
you send me something
that lists your October shows? You see, I mark off all that I do see from your list of hundreds.....
have heard froma VERY reliable source that you have an extremely cool show! I'm located in Gurnee,
Ill, and wondered
if your show could be seen anywhere near here. I'm a fan of horror hosts-my first
was Marvin on Chi-towns Shock Theater
back in '58.
Is it possible to order any copies of some of your shows?
thank you for the show tape! I really enjoyed
watching one of your shows. I am looking forward to
the other episode tomorrow!
I will be sending out that GYT episode tonight, and
wanted to tell you that I am promoting you in the
Features Group! Your picture is on the
homepage right now!
Hello Mr. Shreek,
I have serveral movie
request please. I'm very interested in seeing Beast from Haunted Cave,
Bloody Pit of Horror and, The Hideous Sun
Demon. Are these movies coming up soon?
Keep up the great work!
I enjoy watching Black Sky Cinema very much. It reminds me of the campy horror shows that came on
when I was a kid. You do a wonderful hosting job also.
Well anyways, the only problem I have with the show is
the time slot. Why is the show on Mondays and Tuesdays for crying out loud? Many of us have to get up early and go to work
those days. How about Thursday or Friday night? Lord knows TV is boring on Friday nights!!! What possessed them to put the
show on Monday and Tuesday anyway? Please have them rectify this situation very soon!
to hearing from you soon.
I saw on the MNTalent website that you have a show called "Black Sky
Cinema." Does your show do interviews
with actors? I just complete a
horror movie in Hollywood and would like to be a guest on your show.
The film I just did is a supernatural thriller called "El Intermedio"
which is coming to Blockbuster Video Stores
this October for Halloween.
The star studded cast included Edward Furlong (T2, Crow 4) Amber Benson
Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever) Steve Railsback (Ed Gein)
and me- Paul Cram.
Dear Mr. Shreek,
Would you please send me a VHS copy of your show containing the following movies:
"Attack of the Giant Leeches"
I love your show, I am in Michigan and do not receive you or any horror host here.
Hello Mr. Shreek!
I recieved the video you sent! I can't tell you how much I appreciate
it! I'll be watching later tonight!
I love it.
Again, thanks and hope you have great success!
I want to be a guest on your show.
How do I enter to win a copy of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde? I saw the promotion
but dont know what to do to enter. I love the old classics. In fact, at 56 years of age I am an old classic. Id sure like
to have a copy of that movie. Even if I dont win, I love the show!
...miss being up there- stupid South Florida! Nothing good down here...
I would like to get a signed pic if it wouldn't be too much trouble. I really appreciate SOMETHING to un-dull my cubicle walls...
Keep rockin' on, and thanks!
Myself with a group of friends are trying to start
up a local horror
show in AZ and were warned about the copywrites for showing movie laws.
What dies it take
to get going?
I'll write a letter to your show as well..would be cool to have you read it on the air.
As for being a wrestler, that
I am not. LOL I got the nickname back in the 9th grade in 1991 in high school cuz I could impersonate The Undertaker
and I'm a huge fan...still am today.
Thanks again for the reply, and I'll be looking forward to seeing
some of your shows. Did you want me to send you some cash for postage or anything? Let me know.
Take care my
friend, and it's good to know that there are still hosts out there who still want to be pals with their fans! Good luck
Your friend and fan,
Chris "The Undertaker" Adams
Thanks again for the tapes. I'll get the cassettes back to you once
they are copied.
currently editing together the program mentioned in
previous emails requesting a copy of your program.
To give the
viewer some background on Black Sky Cinema would you mind
telling me a little about yourself and what inspired your public
production. Any bits of information concerning budgets, talent,
production, trivia, etc. would also be
Thanks again for your assistance and generosity.
Sorry for this late reply.
Thank you for the tapes. The program will work perfectly for
my project. Do I have
your permission to use an excerpt and to later
cablecast the entire programs locally? (I'd like to use your plea for
horror host programs as a lead-in to a segment.)
I've always been a big fan of the old late night
horror shows. They
were popular in this area from the late
50s to the early 80s -- right up until the big corporations eliminated
Halloween Candy from Mr Shreek!!!
I was so happy to see these, I had to get Werewolf in a Girls Dorm
Planet in the Marathon lineup. My thanks to you...

You are doing great work! I must say the segments are getting more and

Of coarse we love the movies but we really watch to see the host and

It has to be the host who keeps us watching!
I still have not seen Mr. Shreek actually

Thanks for all you do for us and your fans. I am proud to have you as

I will definitely look forward to gettign your 2 year anniversary show! I am especially intrigued by one of the new
characters on your show, THE ATOMIC MONSTER? I saw pics of him on your site, and he looks very cool!
Glad to hear all is well. We have seen our group grow more over the last year, and we now have over 513 members
currently. Do you want me to send a message to our group from your show, or make an announcement about your 2 year anniversary?
Also, do you want me to mention your free show offer to the new members? I don't want to overstep my bounds and obligate
you to sending out too many tapes if you don't want to....
I am glad to see you are showing classic horror movies. I grew up with Horror, Inc. back in the 70's
and was happy to see your show!
Keep up the good work!
Greetings, Let me first say that I am a huge fan . I am a 30 something guy who grew up with the horror show hosts
in the 70's.
Your show and the thirst for 'the good old days' has so inspired me that I am trying to get a similar
concept off the ground in my area. I have been piecing together elements and content for a show that would be hosted by a
ghoul type character and feature public domain content, but have run into some major questions concerning legalities that
I was hoping you might be able to shed some light on and fill me in on your basic procedure.
The concept for my show is much more in line with Sir Graves Ghastly, who is the host I grew
up with out of Detroit, I do not want to give the impression that I am ripping you guys off in any way just really inspired
by the work you have done
I am currently producing a public access program aimed at showcasing
examples of the diverse range of PEG programming
the country. The purpose of the program is to inspire potential producers
in the area to create their
own original public access programming.
The local access channel in my area (Huntington, WV) has recently
been made accessable for the first time, and (with
the exception of a few
of my own insignificant productions) has yet to be utilized to its potential.
examples of other PEG productions will motivate others to
take advantage of the medium.
My purpose in writing to you is to request a tape of your program to
use in part (or in its entirety) -- with your
permission, of course. I promise
to utilize it in the best manner possible to serve as one of many examples
productions from around the country.
If you agree, I will gladly cover copy and shipping expenses.
Please consider my request.

Hey there Mr. Shreek. You had sent me a tape of your show to me this
week, i was the one from Canada
that inquired about your show a while
On the weekend i had a chance to check it out and i must say i laughed
ass off!!! very funny material. So far from what i've seen you and Me
are classic. I can't
believe you got with some of that material but i
your on public access so that must be why you can get away
also love how you through in old school commercials as well, i don't
want to know
where you dug those up, but it does add originality to
show. Is Me Zombie some kind of inside joke with
you since there
an I Zombie? All you need now is a Myself Zombie. keep up the good
and if i lived closer i tune into your show for sure.
Thanks for everything
