    Hehe-The Creep was one heck of a guy wan't he?

    Always a mystery to the end. His sunglasses never left his face, and many
    of us wondered just who he really was-he just seemed to come out of nowhere, host the show, and go back to whereever he came from.

    And that worked just great.

    WNEW was able to create a very effective show with a minimum of
    FX and budget, because they were more intent on creating their own personality thru mystery than getting a known name to host the show. Little did they know what a great icon they left us with.

    "Chiller" Update ... Oct 8, 2009 Hey Shawn! This has been verified by PiX as of today. "CHILLLLLLER THEATRE RETURNS! Chiller Theatre is back on PIX with the presentation of the 1964 classic "The Evil of Frankenstein" airing from 8-10 pm on Saturday, October 31st. Chiller Theatre will be hosted by Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and will feature the original Chiller Theatre opens: "The Six-Fingered Hand" and the "Monster Montage." Chiller Theatre originally aired on WPIX from 1961-1978 and again from 1980-1982. After PIX resurrected Chiller Theatre in 2008 (with a broadcast of "Tarantula" hosted by Zacherley) the station received hundreds of requests from viewers demanding the return of Chiller Theatre to the air. This year, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark will host PIX's Chiller Theatre presentation. Elvira, who began her reign as "Queen of Halloween" in 1981, was the first horror host ever to be syndicated nationally and has emerged as one of the most original and outrageous characters in popular culture today. Her spooktacular career includes two feature films, an IMAX film and 2 motion control rides. She has recorded 5 music CDs, published 4 books and licensed over 400 products. Elvira also boasts the best selling female costume of all time. Played by actress-writer Cassandra Peterson, Elvira the legendary Mistress of the Dark will be hosting the interstitials throughout the 8-10pm PIX broadcast of "The Evil of Frankenstein" The 1964 campy chiller "The Evil of Frankenstein" -from Hammer Film Productions, one of the most famous names in horror- Peter Cushing stars as Baron Frankenstein who resurrects his monster only to have him come under the spell of Zoltan, a svengali-like carnival hypnotist who mesmerizes the creature into doing his evil bidding. The bloody mayhem will ensue from 8-10 pm on Saturday, October 31st. Visit wpix.com for exclusive web-only content including: a photo gallery and outtakes from the shoot, Elvira's Top 10 List of Horror Movies, 11 Things You Always Wanted to Know About Elvira But Were AFRAID to Ask and the Ghoultown's new video "Mistress of the Dark!"" Whatcha think? S8pm

    I remember Lou Steele getting to "the business at hand" for the night, as well as sitting under those studio lights and hamming it up with his jokes ands quotes and all that. I also remember when he hosted the all-nighter that had the movies from 12 midnight to 6AM. Always under the studio lights with that slightly reverberated voice, and those sunglasses. I remember he used to say, "Don't be afraid, it's only your old pal, the Creep!".

    Minimalistic to a fault, I think! The reverb was the defining character there ... forgot about that. The whole thing had a perverse film noir look to it, and it was unique in that FOR ONCE you saw what the announcer looked like. Didn't hold a strobe light to the original opening though.

    I would say that's a possibility because like I said before..the same frown is present in the face of Steele as it is the Glenn Strange pic. I spoke to Tap' today and he's considering joining up at the site to give us some fun :)

    I saw CF in both B&W and color, and of the color sequences, I mostly remember the reddish aspect of the face, and not the other colors. In any way we look at this, this is one of the greatest TV horror mysteries of all time!

    It's been only a few short months, but I can't recall how I got here. iMDb? Dunno. Tap would be a GREAT asset here, he'd love the many threads made by artists inside and outside the very industries, particularly that guy who sculpts in latex. Absolutely incredibly lifelike work, down to the last hair. As far as CF, I invited Joe to be our official critic. He's got the best recall of all of us; he posted in "The Creep" thread on how our image not only pulsed, but moved also, and may have contained other ghosted images melting and morphing in the background. But the face was the lead graphic and came to the fore the most. That he recalled there being other images in the "lava lamp" animation was news to me. That was a direct response to Creeping Bride's query as to whether or not there were other images incorporated into the intro. I'm sure she's confusing another intro completely, unless the later installments of CF from the late '70s, post-hostless intro, had a montage, but I don't recall that at all. By then, Steele would sit under the hot lamps on a stool and discuss the night's business at hand. Dunno exactly what year WNEW introduced the on-air quiz, could've been as early as '74, but again, I dunno, I was all of 10 at the time!
