Close Encounters of Horror Hosts

This is a companion piece to Episode 6, which was about the creation and history of Shock Theater and Horror Hosts.

Sometimes, though, there’s just more story to tell.

Join me as I dig a little deeper into the world of Modern Horror Hosts.


I make a confession about my own childhood Horror Host, “Uncle Ted.”

This “Addendum of Doom” is called, “Close Encounters of the Horror Host Kind!”

Enter “The Addendum of Doom!”
