Hello, everybody, this is Frankie Franken and the MonsterGrrls reporting for Tales From The Monster Shop, and today's Attack Of The Horror Hosts post features the very unusual Pumpkin Man, who hosts classic horror movies on his own show, Fright Night Theater. FNT also features classic hard rock and metal songs along with lots of horror-host goofiness, and even though he's really busy around Halloween time, Pumpkin Man graciously sat down for a quick interview with us!
Frankie: Welcome to The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween! Please tell us about yourself and what you do.
Pumpkin Man: I'm The Pumpkin Man! I'm over 2000 years old and I don't look a day over 25. (laughs) Anyway, I love horror movies and the classic Universal Monsters. I love them so much I host a show called FRIGHT NIGHT THEATER!
Bethany: What is the origin of the Pumpkin Man? What inspired you to be a horror host?
Pumpkin Man: I come from long ago when pagans worshipped All Hallows Eve! My inspiration is scaring everyone I can.
Bethany: Hmm. What's your favorite horror movie?
Pumpkin Man: Well, I guess if I have to pick just one, it would be Halloween!
Harriet: Cool! That's just about the only modern horror movie we like, although Mad Doc has pretty good taste sometimes.
Frankie: How do you create your show?
Pumpkin Man: I create my show by ad-libbing every damn thing... (laughs)
Punkin: What do you think about all them new remade horror films, Mr. Punkin Man?
Pumpkin Man: Don't get me started on that! I HATE THE REMAKE MACHINE!! Why can't people with original ideas and stories get onscreen? Because Hollywood is a bunch of IDIOTS!
Bethany: Don't hold back, darling.
Frankie: What was your favorite Halloween costume?
Pumpkin Man: My favorite costume is mine! (laughs)
Punkin: What was your best Halloween?
Pumpkin Man: Every Halloween is best to me.
Frankie: What does Halloween mean to you?
Pumpkin Man: Halloween means everything to me. It's the only time of the year where the victims come to see me... Wait!!! I mean visitors. Yeah, that's it, visitors come to see me.
And that is our interview with the Pumpkin Man, who can be seen on his own channel at Youtube and at the Horror Host Graveyard! Be back with us for our next installment of The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween, and get ready because the Ghost Wonderful Time Of The Year will soon be here!
