Heh heh heh.  This has probably been posted before.  But, if you were a ten year old monster kid  growing up in Chicago, on a Saturday night, this was the place to be.

I had it hard. My P's were pushing mid 40's when I was born and I am the baby of the family. So I had to beg and plead just to watch Creature Features on WGN Chicago because it was past my bed time. No Creepy's Eeries or anything else. I tried to sneak in a copy of Weird when we went shopping. When we got home mom found it before I did , went ballistic and made me tear it up. At least I got to watch classic stuff like King Kong and the 50's B monster stuff on Saturdays. It wasn't until I was in my early teens with the D.C and Marvel horror comics that I was FINALLY able to enjoy monster stuff.
 Then I got into hard rock and heavy metal and that too was yet another battle.

I was complete opposite with my kid. I explained that if this movie me and mom are going to watch is too scary you can leave at anytime. At age 10 she was watching NOTLD/Hell Raiser/Freddy/ Evil Dead etc. By the time she was 13-14 I was turning her on to Goth and Death Metal. Her friends thought that was so cool. "Your dad listens to F'in death metal? ,No Way". Way! >:D


This one's for you Lester.......

My Mom is 89 and lives just up the road from me.  When I go see her she asks me what I've been doing and I tell her, "I've been painting monster pictures" or "I've been building monster models."  She'll always laugh and say, "When are you ever going to grow up?"  I tell her "I'm 55 years old and I hope I never grow up."  I'm sure my wife wonders the same thing!  Both are wonderful women...I've been blessed.

My precocious 6 year old is concerned about growing up and losing the benefits of being a kid.  I told her she doesn't have to let that happen.  She doesn't quite understand that yet.

Facto ,that is the S###. Any Chicago grade school kid crapped their jammies with that intro.
And newscaster Marty Mc Nealy's voice and intro. Jiffypop/ cold cokes and THIS,especially during a rainy  night. GOOD TIMES and several sleepless nights in 5th grade.

Creature features intro 71

My Grandmother lived across the street from my parents, so I watched a lot of monster movies over there. My mom and dad were indifferent, but when I got old (my teens), the male relatives didn't understand why I didn't like hunting, and liked art and music and monsters!

Seems to be working now.  Wish we'd gotten Chiller Theater in Chicago.  Oh well.  At least we also had Svengali.  Couldn't find a vid for him.

Chiller was a big part of my life, growing up in New York.
