As a child, KTVX Channel 4 had a television show on every Friday night at 11:20 pm. It was called Nightmare Theatre. I stayed up late to watch it every weekend. My dad had been a scary movie fan, so I was allowed to stay up as late as I could.
I usually fell asleep fifteen minutes into the program.
We had a host, but I remember NOTHING about him or her. I literally can’t remember if the host was male or female. All I remember is the scary movies. It seems that I was missing out.
The other channels had hosts with charisma who loved the movies or hated the movies. They dressed up in costume. Their exploits are going to be the focus of this new documentary called American Scary.
After watching the footage from their trailers, I said to myself, “Man, I was missing out!”
If you ever watched a television show like Nightmare Theatre as a child, then you probably had a horror host that you loved. Me? I was just trying to stay awake past the first commercial break.
