Overview

Join filmmaker C.W. Prather as he takes TV lovers on a nostalgic trip back to when horror hosts haunted the UHF dial and regional television held a treasure trove of localized surprises. For generations of Washingtonians, the name Dick Dyszel will forever be synonymous with three names: Bozo the Clown, Captain 20, and Count Gore De Vol. Through the 1970s and '80s, Dyszel's colorful television characters entertained adults and children alike. Later, when the millennium was about to turn and skeptics cited horror hosts as a relic of the past, Dyszel revolutionized the concept of on-demand entertainment by launching "Creature Feature: The Weekly Web Program." Interviews with critic Arch Campbell, 30 Days of Night writer Steve Niles, Heavy Metal Parking Lot director Jeff Krulik, scream queens Leanna Chamish and Eleanor Herman, next-generation horror hosts John Dimes (Dr. Sarcofiguy) and Jerry Moore II, and, of course, Dyszel himself, explore the fun times of a bygone era while proving that even when we're reminiscing about the good old days, the best times are often yet to come.
