to be afflicted with a rare disorder called "Shortfilxia",
which was caused by his being struck by lightning at a drive-in
when he was a small lad. Because of this "disorder",
Gunther can only
stay awake for movies lasting one hour or less. This works out
well since the show is only an hour, Gunther condenses each film
down to around 40 minutes, then inter-cuts various odd public
domain film bits, cartoons or newsreels in to spice things up.

The Show & Producer
Basement Sublet of Horror is the creation of the show's producer
Joel Sanderson who's been working with old films his whole life.
Their were several incarnations of this movie show presented in
different live formats, years before the production on BSOH began.
"M.T. Pockets Budget Film Fest" was a live stage show
that played at the Wichita Center for the Arts in Wichita, Kansas
for six years from 1996 to 2002. Preceded by "The Escape' Drive-in"
an outdoor drive-in movie theme party that was held in Vinland,
Kansas from 1989 to 1994.
BSOH is based on Joel's nostalgia for
vintage horror hosts from the past, especially "The Host and
Rodney" show from Wichita's television history. The basic concepts
of BSOH are a loving parody of "The Host and Rodney",
BSOH includes a lonely house on the hill in the shows opening segment
as a homage to the host's original TV program which was also known as "Nightmare".
The show has run for seventeen seasons (which are based on DVD collection sets, not actual years of broadcast) with over two hundred episodes on it's broadcast roster that have been broadcast on television, cable stations, and internet broadcast channels across the world.
