What no mention of Sir Hitchcock? 😱


Does he really qualify as a host though?

I'm quite partial to his movies.

Join the hunt.
Ask around your town and circle of friends if anyone has some old movie reels.

Hitchcock’s very first movie titled “The Mountain Eagle” is missing.

Many copies of this movie were mailed from theatre to theatre in the USA.
In those days if a movie was not a hit,
the last movie house to show it was told “It is not worth the shipping cost to send it back to Hollywood CA so you can keep it or throw it away.”

I forgot about Count Scary! This was a character made up by Detroit area
radio disc jockey (WOMC) Tom Ryan. He hosted horror movies from the early 80's until the 1990's.
Him and the Ghoul teamed up in the mid 90's for a TV show special.
"OOOoohhh That's SCARY!!!!!". laugh2 Loved his campy comedy!

I forgot about Count Scary too. I actually have the Count Scary/Ghoul show featuring Night of the Living Dead recorded on VHS. I don't think I've watched it since I recorded it.

I remember him well. After Detroit, he moved and became Morgus the Magnificent at the New Orleans local station. He and his side kicks, Chopsley and Eric the skull, hosts the “B” Sci-Fy movies on Saturday nights. The actor’s name was Sid Noel. Chopsley was a motorcycle cop and always wore a hood with his outfit. In between the movie, they were always cooking up some scientific tomfoolery, which would always go south by the end of the show. Fond memories from my childhood.

And speaking of Alfred Hitchcock I used to think of him as a horror genius until I heard of Tipi Hedrin God bless her still alive at 93 yo.And her own harrowing experience where Alfred Hitchcock made her shoot for 5 days in a upstairs filled with real seagulls ,crows etc..She was attacked by these birds that all wound up and tossed in the room so some of the blood scene's in those shots may have been real!

Svengoolie.... I see him and think.... "buck buck buck buuuuuck! Chicken Maaaan! He's everywhere! He's everywhere!" Hence the rubber chickens, of course. His trivia is fun.

Indianapolis viewing area had a legend for decades. Whenever we traveled and caufsome local channel scary movie host, they were always lame and could be.

None of these hacks could hold a candle to Sammy Terry. ( a play on cemetery).

Wasn't "Peter Vincent" a character played by Roddy McDowell, from the Fright Night film?

Vincent? There's only one Vincent for horror movies.

Masque of the RedDeath, Hound of the Baskerville, abominable Dr Phibes and the list goes on. Heck even the Scooby-Doo episode was fun. Not to mention his voice over in Thriller.
