Description by OLDIES.com:
From 1973 to 1987, "Fright Night" was a fixture of the late Saturday evening schedule on independent New York television station WOR-TV. A genre fan's nightmare come true, the modestly produced showcase featured horror films both classic and obscure, from Universal's Frankenstein series to such lesser-known delights as Beast of Blood and The Living Coffin. "Fright Nigh" suffered no delusions of grandeur, and never claimed to be anything more than what it was: great entertainment on a Saturday night. This affectionate tribute to "Fright Night's" glory days includes a complete listing of all films shown on the series, as well as discussion of WOR-TV's other horror movie programs from the 1970s and 1980s. Also featured are interviews with the major surviving players, including series creator Lawrence P. Casey, who were responsible for the "Fright Night" experience.
