I can still remember my first two monster movies: King Kong vs. Godzilla and Dracula (the Frank Langella version). I think Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster came next, followed by Fright Night...

I remember watching a lot of that old Channel 29 horror movie series, Theatre Bizarre, when I was a kid - back before Channel 29 was Fox. It scared the hell out of me most of the time, particularly the original Thirteen Ghosts.

Don't mean to hijack, but am I the only person who's never been scared the teensiest bit by Legend of Boggy Creek?  And I've spent some nights in the woods and I've had to walk out of the deep woods in the middle of the night in an emergency.  Almost everyone on the internet claims to have been scared witless by this movie but the only thing it ever made me do was fall asleep.

Yea, the original 13 GHOST was a good scary film when I was a kid. Still a good little film. THE CRAWLING EYE was also a good one. Shown at the right time of night at the right age.

How old were you when you first saw LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK Akiratubo?

Seven or eight, I think.  (That would have been 1986 or 1987.)

Definitely King Kong and Godzilla (1956), with Frankenstein, Wolf Man, Dracula and the Mummy all around the same time.

I was recently telling my wife that I remember in elementary school (first or second grade) it was a big deal when King Kong came on TV; this would have been around 1971 or so.  We all were talking about it.

I also grew up watching Creature Feature and later a show called Shock Theatre that aired on Saturday afternoon.  When I was younger, I watched shows like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, UFO, Star Trek, any 50's era movie, etc with my Dad.

The first monster that scared me was The Mummy (Karloff is creepy).  I still get a chill when I see stills from that film.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
