The Count Gore De Vol Television Filmography . . .

"Greetings!  I am the Count Gore De Vol!"

It is 11:00 on a random Saturday night in the Washington D. C. area and you are a horror junkie.  These words of welcome (and invitation) emanate over the airwaves from WDCA Channel 20 and you are tucked in tight for a night of fright, innuendo and hometown satire.  The light from the TV throws a blue-white glow into your darkened room.  As you munch a handful of Joe Namath Air Popped Popcorn, a suave vampire sips a dubious concoction from a Redskins mug between political jabs and attempts to pick up centerfolds . . .

But what year is it?  1973?  78?  84?  87?

For those trying to trace that particular memory, I offer the following:  This list of films shown on WDCA's Creature Feature hosted by Count Gore De Vol from 1973-79 and later from 1984-1987 as archived from the Washington Post.  No guarantees are made for the veracity of these entries, but they are made in good faith.  In other words, if you find errors, let me know at editor@creaturescape.com and we will try to take care of it.  Until then . . . may all your blood be warm!

1973

What an exciting time to live in DC!  Watergate, Deep Throat (both of them), Vietnam, the Skins losing the most boring Superbowl of all time and the arrival of a vampire exiled from Paducah.  It began in the dead of winter . . .
