A Trip Down Memory Lane

How I wish that some smart executive in film and television would have the good sense to bring back the fright show to tv. You know what I mean...the Friday or Saturday late night show where a horror host would introduce a horror or science fiction movie and add jokes and just general fun to the proceedings. Those days are gone and unfortunately..with the exception of Elvira...were gone before my time. I read about all these cool horror hosts and their shows, but have never been able to see them...well that is till I found the Zacherley Archives. One of the first and certainly greatest horror hosts was John Zacherle, first out of Philadelphia and then New York City. Zacherle was known...and still is...as the Cool Ghoul for his make-up and ever resplendent wit. He was famous for introducing horror films and adding funny jokes(usually horrendously corny and campy) and little stories about his tomb or crypt and its inhabitants. In this tape, we are treated to a few of those old shows that somehow were saved from someone filming the television screen I believe. These shows are priceless as they show what it was like to grow up in the era...even keeping the commercials as well. Sure some of the humour is a bit dated, but boy I cannot tell you how much fun I had taking this trip down memory lane...a lane I would never have been able to travel otherwise. John Zacherle also does an introduction to each show in the present and I must say he still has his wit intact. For all the monster lovers out there...this one is for you.
