Svengoolie

20 posts in this topic

On MeTv, there is a horror host from chicago, his name is Svengoolie, also known as Rich Koz. He was part of the WCIU television station in the area known as Berwyn. He first started as the Son of Svengoolie in 1979 after Joey G. Bishop retired the character in 1973. Then, after the cancellation of the Son of Svengoolie in 1986, Rich Koz kept on going with the Koz Zone from 1986 to 1995. In 1995, Koz finally attributed the title of Svengoolie. He is currently one of the last remaining horror hosts from the golden age of television to continue his stance on television. He currently screens horror movies from Universal as well as monster movies from Toho Studios. To learn more about Svengoolie, visit svengoolie.com.

One of the movies that Svengoolie screened last year was a Steven Spielberg film that had not played on television for years, Duel (1971) starring Dennis Weaver. I haven't seen the film, but I heard it was a ratings grabber.

I love this movie.  It's very suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat.  Dennis Weaver is very believable.  I hope you get to see this sometime.  I'm fortuante enough to have a DVD of it.
