Last year about this time, I was recalling our Saturday night fright time. Friday might have been The Midnight Special, but Saturday at 10:30 PM was Creature Features, and now that I have high speed and can figure out how to find files on YouTube, I'm sending along the intro, which always scared the crap out of me as a kid, between the panning shots of Bela behind the tree, that creepy Renfield crawling across the floor dressed like F. Scott Fitzgerald and the music which I later learned to be Henry Mancini's EXPERIMENT IN TERROR. Like TELSTAR and even HARLEM NOCTURNE (which I've never mentioned before), I have to admit that there are more than a few Where Did That Come From instrumentals out there. Enjoy the music and the good old Universal Monsters, the best kind of monster pals anyone could ever hope for.
