Our guest host for Episode 101, David Dastmalchian is having a special streaming event tomorrow night! Or… tonight, depending on when you see this. If you are a fan of late-night horror hosts, you’ll want to catch this panel and a watch party for the Karloff Classic The Old Dark House.
Did you grow up watching late-night horror movie hosts? Shows like Creature Feature, Fright Night, The Vampira Show, Shock-Theater, USA Up All Night, Midnite Mausoleum, Elvira’s Movie Macabre, or Midnight Shadow? I sure did. For Eric, it was Bob Wilkins on Creature Feature on KTVU Channel 2 out of Oakland. On July 5th there will be a streaming event just for you! Here is David’s press release:
THIS SUNDAY JULY 5th at 5 PM PST (8 pm EST)
A first-of-its-kind virtual gathering of Horror Hosts from around
the US is taking place this Sunday! Discussing Horror Host
History, love of hosting, and engaging with fans around the world
will be David Dastmalchian (as Dr. Fearless), Ormon Grimsby.
Marlena Midnite, Professor Griffin, and several special surprise
appearances from the world of late-night horror. The 30-minute
panel will be directly followed by a “Creature Feature Quarantine
Watch Party” where all are welcome to Live Tweet along to the Boris
Karloff Classic! The event is FREE and will be broadcast on the

“I grew up sneaking downstairs to watch the legendary Crematia Mortem’s Creature Feature and have been hooked on Horror Hosts ever since. Creating Count Crowley, getting to know legends like Svengoolie and now hosting this special evening celebrating hosts and our collective love for Horror Host culture has filled my cold, dead heart with MONSTROUS joy.”David Dastmalchian
