I am so excited, humbled and honored to be nominated again for a Rondo Hatton Award again as Favorite Horror Host of 2022 


You can vote here - Deadline is April 23, 2023

Deadly is still miffed, however, for not making the cut - again. He'll get over it - but if you like Beware Theater please vote for Arachna of the Spider People in Category #21 - that will make him, and me, very grateful to be acknowledged for our work.

Thank you all for your continued support of Beware Theater.

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 is a 1942 skid row crime thriller horror movie - Bowery at Midnight

Bela Lugosi stars in two different roles - a kindly psychology professor by day and murdering psychopath by night. There's a prison break, a soup kitchen with lots of hidden doors and passageways, a naive socialite do-gooder nurse and her wealthy psychology student boyfriend, double crossing crooks with guns, a hidden cemetery with a trap door, and a really weird ending.



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