Lived with Grandparents in Greenfield Ctr. near Saratoga Springs from 1961 till grandmother died in 1964. At this point Grandfather and uncle moved into different house in Greenfield till 1969 then Saratoga lake till 1972.
It was during these years my tastes in creepy Horror/Fantasy/Sci-fi movies developed. My tasted haven't changed much since. Was in the Army from '72 till '83 Developed tastes in music that also had an odd "fantasy" like feel too. Tangeringe Dream, Yes, ELP, early Floyd, King Crimson, Mike Oldfield. I do like other kinds of music as well, mostly prior to late 70's.
I now live in Central North Carolina.
'Way Out (1961)
Excellent & hard to find
This is a sadly overlooked anthology series which only ran from March to July 1961 (14 episodes). Although it had the low budget look of the early drama anthologies, it was quite unique and twisted. It often contained dialog that was both creepy and amusing. The series was hosted by Roald Dahl and he did an excellent job of setting up the mood for the stories. His monologues were clever, somewhat like Alfred Hitchcock. The stories themselves included such diverse plots as a man who has a chemical that can change facial features by touching up photos, an actor who can't remove his Quasimoto make-up, a new neighbor who can turn people into frogs, a married man who falls in love with a decapitated woman kept alive by electricity (with a light bulb for a head!), a woman who keeps waking up from nightmares only to find she is still dreaming, an undertaker who seems willing to help murderers "dispose of the body", an actress who discovers that during night rehearsals actors are really murdered & a dying old professor who is given an offer by a doctor to keep his brain alive in a tank after his body is dead. This show aired the 1/2 hour before The Twilight Zone on Friday nights. Seeing them as a child was quite frightening. Now seeing the only 5 stories that I could find as an adult, I can see how well written they were. I am really hoping this series shows up on DVD. At only 14 episodes, the whole series would make a great set.
