Sammy Terry headed for the ceme-tary

Sammy Terry, aka Bob Carter, who hosted Saturday late-night scary movies on WTTV in Bloomington and Indianapolis from 1962 to 1989, died yesterday at American Senior Communities. He was 83.

He opened his show – called Nightmare Theatre an later Shock Theater – dressed in a cape and skull cap as he emerged from a coffin.

In real life, Carter owned and operated the Family Music Center music store on North Shadeland Avenue in Indianapolis.

I thought his act was somewhere between silly and stupid, but I think my sons watched him.
