Virginia Creepers: The Horror Host Tradition of the Old Dominion 2009 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
For more than 50 years, the airwaves of the Commonwealth have been pleasantly haunted by some of the most creative, hilarious and enduring horror hosts in the country.
Since 1958, kids in Virginia have been staying up late to catch characters like The Bowman Body, Dr. Madblood, Count Gore De Vol, Sir Graves Ghastly and Dr. Gruesome in the act of comic relief. And to this day, on TV and on the internet, horror hosting is still going strong in the Old Dominion.
This documentary explores one of the nation’s richest traditions with extensive interviews with dozens of hosts, actors and producers. It also features audio and video thought lost to time and even uncovers the history of four shows that were previously undocumented!
The film is a full 120 minutes feature with a music video, mini-documentary and lots of additional footage in the deleted scenes.
If you are tired of spending another weekend with no horror host to look forward to, this film is for you no matter where you grew up!
