Turning the Dial to Monster Kid Radio

By Ghastly | July 18, 2022

The Haunted Cinema (THC) – I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, watched not one, but three different horror hosts and had a steady diet of classic monsters, Kaiju films, Sci-Fi T.V. etc… You have mentioned on your show that this was not your experience growing up. In fact, you call yourself a 2nd…

The existence of these horror films reflects a shadow side of the post-war prosperity and simple, apple-pie values so often attributed to this time period in our country’s…

About The Haunted Cinema

The Haunted Cinema started out as a hobby website to display vintage cinema posters, but has grown into a review and interview hub for enthusiasts of the Horror/Sci-fi movie genres. Our content is in the same vein as old-school horror host greats such as Elvira & The Ghoul.

Our Undead, rather, Head Usher. He keeps things running smoothly (mostly) in the cinema and makes sure that our guests are creepy and comfy.



Part Mad Scientist, part Mad Projectionist. He is responsible for the scares on the screen. He puts the “Haunted” in The Haunted Cinema.



From dusk till dawn (she’s allergic to sunlight), she handles all of our patron’s snack needs at our candy counter. She’s always looking for someone to stop by for a “bite”.
