Chiller Theater - Horror Films from Childhood

When I was growing up, there was a regular feature on early Saturday nights on the local television station (WPIX) in the NY metropolitan area called "Chiller Theater". My siblings and I were glued to the TV, watching old Universal classics, cheesy 1950s sci-fi films and others. They seemed to play the same features over and over, so I got to know them well. I still love watching these today when they show up on TCM, YouTube or other streaming services. I don't know if links show up here but here is the old opening from Chiller Theater: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXjHvhpRQ8U
