Tonight's feature will be William Castle's chilling NIGHT WALKER; its first time on Svengoolie's program. Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor pull out the stops in this surprise filled heart stopper, one of the director's best. If you're among the uninitiated, DO NOT miss this classic melodrama!

Next week is the delightfully silly MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS. Fun!

I'm with ya, R.R. MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS gets such a bad rap but I confess it's one of my favorite U-I sci-fi's. Might even have featured John Agar in the role of the professor-turned-neanderthal had Agar re-signed his Universal contract.

I retract my statement that MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS is silly. This is a fine, Jack Arnold B feature. Played with intelligence (give or take) and drama. The monster, once he finally appears, is terrifying. The fact that we don't see him for over an hour is even better. Suspense, not shock. As most of you know, Mr. Arnold is the "no budget" craftsman responsible for TARANTULA, IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, a couple of Black Lagoon entries, THE TATTERED DRESS. And isn't there one about a guy who gets really small? Laugh all you want at the melodramatic hysterics. This is a filmmaker to reckon with.

If anyone's in the mood, Svengoolie is showing FRANKENSTEIN tonight. We've all seen it many times. Not much to say about this exceptional work that hasn't been said already. But there's not a more perfect choice for Halloween on a Saturday night! Surely, somebody, somewhere, will enjoy this classic.

Oh, no. Poor Leo G. Carroll is doomed...but I will probably watch Tarantula (1955) once again...hoping for a different ending.

It's Creature from the Black Lagoon this Saturday and I'm going to pass it up because I'm pretty much tired of it.
