A nostalgic homage to the glory days of the late night horror shows, 'AMERICAN SCARY,' features interviews and archival footage of the most famous hosts from the 1950s to present day. John E. Hudgens and Sandy Clark offer an affectionate tribute to horror show hosting.
Across the nation, people remember their local hosts fondly: from Bob Wilkins and John Stanley in the San Francisco Bay area, Chicago’s Svengoolie, to Sir Cecil Creepe in Nashville. Follow this American art form from its glamorous beginnings, through repeated waves of popularity and get re-acquainted with those who are a part of television history, featuring interviews with the most notable, including:
ZACHERLEY (John Zacherle) began his horror hosting career in the late 1950’s in Philadelphia as "Roland" and became one of the most iconic nationally recognized figures in the genre.
GHOULARDI (Ernie Anderson) - anarchic hipster creation exploded on Cleveland television in the winter of 1962, and proceeded to excite and warp the minds of his fanatic followers until 1966.
VAMPIRA (Maila Nurmi) and her record small waist, was created from elements of Charles Addams cartoons, screen glamour queens and bondage magazines. Vampira was featured in many national magazines, including Life and Newsweek.
If you would like to win your own copy, just answer this easy question: Maila Nurmi ('Vampira') claimed to be the niece of the Finnish athlete Paavo Nurmi, who began setting long-distance running world records in 1921, the year before her birth.) But, in all truth, what was her actual (entire) birth name?!
