About this item

Okuda and Yurkiw present readers with a comprehensive examination of horror movie programs produced by local Chicago television stations from their inception in 1957 to the present. Following an introduction and a chapter recovering the repackaging of old horror movies by Hollywood studios with the help of regional distributors and local television stations, the authors devote a chapter to each of the horror programs in Chicago television history. They begin with the 1950s program Mad Marvin’s Monster Movie Mania and finish up with a profile of the programs Svengoolie and Son of Svengoolie.
