The Lyrics

Before computers there was television and not many stations to choose from. When I was growing up, the best time of the week was Saturday night when we all got together to watch the great old Universal Monster movies of the thirties and forties. Nothing else need be said, except that it was pure Heaven for an imaginative and innocent little kid who somehow turned out to be me. I bid you welcome. ;-)
MONSTER SATURDAY NIGHT

Huddlin' up next to each other
In the dark of night
Weird flashing horrors before us
Monster Saturday Night

Karloff, Lugosi and Chaney
Glorious black’n’white
Eatin’ popcorn, watchin’ thrillas
Monster Saturday Night

Bats and wolves made us jump (yeah)
My siblings and me
Sounds in the night went bump (bump)
Yipe's - It's Christopher Lee! (howls)

Imagination’s all we had (yeah)
Gave us quite a fright
Creepy sounds from my mom and dad!
Monster Saturday Night!

After a coupl’a hours watching creatures
Were so ready for a double feature
Ran to the bathroom to catch our breath
Midnight struck we screamed at the ticking clock of death

(Spooky Music Instrumental interlude)

Nightmarish visions ’neath the Moon
We thought that guy Renfield quite a loon!

Children of the Night what music we made
Shrieking when the light was turned down real low

(Spoken)
“Don’t be frightened my child
“There’s no such things as monsters, vampires, and werewolves don’t you know?
"Pleasant dreams, now comes the Sandman (hah)
"Ghosts’ll haunt you no more!"

Computer games didn’t need them
We made out all right
Watchin’ Kong and Frankenstein
Monster Saturday Night!
Did you have your own "House of Shock?" And did you recover? :-D

Atmos-fearic, Forsby! Five blobs of fives!

Never much cared for horror movies -- seems the real world has far more than enough horrors.... and fairy tales are horror stories, too -- get thrown in the oven, eaten by a wolf.... 555 for your very descriptive Monster Smash.

Some great films (and some not so great ones as well). First horror film that scared me as a kid was the 'house for the blind' story in Tales from the Crypt in the 70's. Dread to think how corny it would look today!

The classic horror movies are still wonderfully fun-- maybe it's the black and white (and all the shadows) :D

Great job on an early Halloween parody! Makes a great promo for a Halloween movie marathon on Saturday night during a Halloween season! My fave movie is Freddy vs. Jason! 555!

Timmy100 - Thanks for the v/c.

JMasta - Glad you enjoyed the movie!

blackjack21 - Glad to help bring back those memories.

TJC - When I was a kid, just the thought of The Blob scared me - I saw the original film a few years ago and couldn't believe how cheesy it was.

TT - You know, after the initial fear, I learned to see how all those monsters, the Frankenstein monster, Dracula, the Wolfman, The Invisible Man were all sympathetic figures, as much victims as their victims ... and more so. The newer movies have almost totally lost that element and have suffered because of it.

Andy - Yeah, I remember that. The old EC comics were pretty gruesome. I have quite a collection of reprints. Even the lesser horror films have a whimsical quality that keeps drawing back to them though. Can't say the same to too many more "modern" horror movies although I go back to The Shining every so often.

Fiddlegirl - You are so right. The best of the best are still timeless and, after growing up on B&W movies on TV I've never really gotten used to the use of color in horror movies ... hence my reference to "glorious black and white." I love it.

Christine Marie - Thanks girl! You should plan your own fright nights next month. I'll have to pull out my copy of Friday the 13th and watch it in your honor.
