If you grew up in Chicago in the 70s, you'll probably remember this intro segment from WGN's Saturday-night horror-movie program Creature Features. I stumbled across this re-creation of it on YouTube, and I thought I'd share it with you for Halloween. The actual sequence was only a minute long, fading out before the still photos pick up here; I don't recall the whispered narration, and I believe there were slightly more clips from Frankenstein (1931). But otherwise this is pretty close. For years I wondered what the music was: it's Henry Mancini's theme music for the Blake Edwards thriller Experiment in Terror (1963). Happy haunting.
