Friday Night Fright Flix.

I remember waiting, wide-eyed and awake, beneath my blankets for the sounds of the adults crawling into their beds so that I could sneak out of my room and venture into the living room where sat a huge floor model Zenith television. This was a repeated ritual on any given Friday night as a kid growing up during the 1970's in America. I would creep into the kitchen and put together a banquet of all of the forbidden foods. Doritos with French Onion dip, chocolate bars, Hostess snacks, Mixed Nuts and 16 ounces of fizzing Pepsi-Cola from a glass bottle. Then I would sit down in front of that big, wood encased window of wonders and pull the power knob quietly. There in the darkness and silence I sat amongs my forbidden feast as the picture tube powered up and the night came alive with creepy crawlies and menacing monsters! It was time for Friday Night Fright Flix!

Gamera the Invincible!Gamera, a.k.a.

I was four years old back in 1972, when GARGOYLES, a TV movie, premiered on ABC’s Movie of the Week. Let me tell you folk's, this movie scared the crap out of me! Even now, over three decades later, when the King Gargoyle  comes onto the screen I recall that terror and fear from my childhood.
