"The Legend of Count Sockula, Vampire Sock!"
I created this show at a local public access station for a Halloween
I think that it ranks up there with the efforts of Ed Wood
-- but who
It first ran on United Cable on October 31st, 1986 and annually,
thereafter, for the next decade.
Like Count Sockula
, it had a
life of its own.
The Count Sockula
soon became host of a children's show entitled
The Count's Castle
It ran on public access for twice a week for over a year.
This video was shot on a combination of BETA and VHS equipment. It was
then edited on a BETA system
before being transferred to 3/4" and then to VHS. Obviously, it is many
generations down, but I've tried
to enhance it a bit with IMovie '09's video tools and some non-buzzing
It may have been a lost cause, but it was just too hokey to let it die.
In the tradition of "B-Movies", I present the original "Sockula."
