Hosted by writer/director Peter Michaels that appeared sporadically across the US. Forrest J Ackerman appeared every Friday evening with Michaels giving insights on the Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy films broadcast as well as showing off many of the Fantasy Artifacts from his home that Peter Michaels tried so hard and valiantly to place in a permanent and proper museum. The museum, of course and forever tragically, never happened even with the best of efforts -- but Michaels' Movie Madness has entered a kind of cult status with rumors of a modern revamp today with Peter Michaels himself returning along with the late Forrest J Ackerman via Michaels' back catalog of video and audio tape on Turner Classic Movies (TCM).

Every time I think of Peter Michael's Movie Madness it gives me a tingly feeling of nostalgia all over. Michael's Movie Madness is an oddity of a TV show. The show was aired on public access in 1988 and the success of the show even surprised Mr. Michael's, especially when celebrities such as Vincent Price, Roddy McDowall, and Forrest J Ackerman appeared either on the show or on the phone for an interview or to participate in the fun. If you are wondering what this show is like, think kinda similar in style to Joe Bob, Grandpa, or other cheesy B, campy, cult, horror cinema show hosts, but being that his show was on public access, he could do whatever he wanted to do, and I mean whatever. All in all, this show is worth checking it out if you can find it. Say hello to Oliver the dog while you check in to watch.
