has written a very special message to CREATURE FEATURE fans below...

"It's been so long since last we met
Our creatures wait with baited breath.
The Wolf Man calls across the night,
And monsters rise with full moon bright.
Come with us now down murky lane,
For Creature Features is our name."


and her BRAND NEW POEM for our 2014 show...

There was a young man named Larry
So handsome if just a bit hairy.
With full moon so bright,
His wolf stalks the night,
And Larry is frightfully scary.

Frankenstein was a doctor of note,
Whose creature was once heard to quote,
I'll come thru the night,
With eyes gleaming bright
From my grave in this ice cold moat.


Karen Verwolf - October 2014





UPDATED OCTOBER 2014
Chicago's WGN television 9 introduced CREATURE FEATURES in the fall of 1970. Classic clips from universal horror movies along with a haunting Henry Mancini theme called "Experiment in Terror" starting every show. Announcers Carl Greyson, and Marty McNeely read a creepy poem in a scary falsetto voice over the intro and set the stage for each weeks movie. It was this show that introduced thousands of "Monster Kids" to the great Universal classics like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man and The Mummy! CREATURE FEATURES captivated Chicagoland audiences and soon became a Saturday night Tradition and part of Chicago culture. CREATURE FEATURES went off regular airings in 1976, and based upon a newly disocvered 1978 "off-air" find aquired by the MUSEUM OF CLASSIC CHICAGO TELEVISION , the show may have run sporadically as late as 1980! How cool that we are finding out new info all the time to complete the shows history thanks to fans like you...
