In an episode of Chiller Theater: Strike of the Living Dead
Margali Morwentari, A.K.A Niels Ericson is up to tricks and treats again, just in time for the Halloween season. He has posted an old episode of Thriller Theater on YouTube, which was a late night show syndicated in the 1990s in the deep, deep south (about six feet). Niels and his co-conspirator Tim Hess put together this bit of late night camp for a number of years. Their patter made the B and C grade movies watchable and they are in the same vein as other horror hosts of yesteryear.
This is the complete Thriller Theater episode and movie from YouTube, sans period commercials and runs nearly an hour and a half. This is an ultra-rare unaired episode of Thriller Theater.
Niels Ericson has also published a number of books over the years with commentary on rare horror texts, often giving enlightening background on how the obscure book was made and remade into films that we all know and love. You can find his website here: http://www.margali-online.com/
