"Don't stay up late. It's not worth it."
Of course, it absolutely was worth it. Growing up in Northern California during the early 1970's, "Creature Features" was my introduction to Horror movies and the TV Horror Host. With his trademark cigar, skull candle, dry sense of humor and deadpan delivery as he skewered the less-than-stellar features being presented, he made staying up late Saturday nights and "sneak-watching" that much more satisfying. He was always about the films and the genre rather than glorifying himself as the host. His show was a major influence on my childhood and he will be remembered and missed.
