American Scary

2006 NR

Nothing to fear here. More silly than scary, this documentary pays homage to the flamboyant local hosts who introduced horror and science-fiction movies to the masses and helped them gain cult status on the airwaves. Between vintage television clips and reflective interviews with horror hosts and aficionados, you'll hear from the likes of Svengoolie (Ernie Anderson), Joan E. Cleaver (Jeanne Dietrick), Sir Cecil Creepe (Russ McCown) and many more.
