Welcome to Beware Theater

     Pull up a couch.  Take a load off.  Fasten your seat belt and join Arachna of the Spider People and her friend Deadly as they host Beware Theater - Classic  horror movies from the golden age of black and white - that are in the public domain.   Bad Acting, Bad directing.  Cheezy special effects and lame plots -  You'll see  vampires, monsters, werewolves, aliens and, of course, the un-dead.  They're weird, charming, scary, or just plain stupid movies. What's not to like?

​ As strange a pair as you're ever gonna see, Arachna and her dead, but still animated, skeleton friend Deadly sit on their old couch and show us how these monochromatic movie marvels are so bad, they're good. They hope you learn to appreciate how weird and charming they are and come back for more. 


Oh, and don't forget to stay tuned after the movie credits for a bonus  short, quirky after-movie skit of the adventures of Arachna and Deadly.

Join us.  It's lots of creepy fun! 


Movie of the Month

  Each month, we'll feature one of the Beware Theater Shows right here.  Click on photo below for link to watch.

Our featured movie this month is 1934 - Chandu on the Magic Island.

It was pieced together from the action serials about Chandu the Magician and stars Bela Lugosi as the hero, for once.


White Magician Chandu must rescue his girlfriend from evil black magic sorcerers who want to kill her and steal her soul to resurrect their goddess. Lots of cliff hanging action and very early special effects.



       Be sure to watch after the credits for a bonus Arachna and Deadly adventure
