About the Project

This site is an homage, of sorts, to the fondly remembered TV show Horror Incorporated, a late-night creature-feature that was broadcast on KSTP-TV in Saint Paul – Minneapolis throughout the 1970s.

The goal of the Horror Incorporated Project is simple: to natter on about each movie featured on the show until a) the movies run out; b) you get sick of reading about them; or c) I get sick of writing about them. Whichever comes first.

The Project is meant as a peaceful, non-remunerative endeavor and is for entertainment purposes only. Your faithful proprieter Uncle Mike takes full responsibility for any errors in fact that will inevitably creep into the narrative.

LEGALISTIC SOUNDING JIBBER-JABBER: I have no official connection with Horror Incorporated, or with its copyright holder, Hubbard Broadcasting Inc. Any images, logos, quotes or video from the program are understood to fall under the fair use provisions of copyright law.

  1. I always looked forward to this show with my mom on Saturday afternoons. I was definitely a “monster kid” and couldn’t wait to see the coffin opening again. Does anyone remember another intro with four faces rotating around? I grew up in Cold Spring at the time. A town of about 2000 people and my interest in monsters continued to grow. I eventually became a special effects makeup artist working in Los Angeles which I still do to this day. This show was a big influence on me. Cool blog!!

    • I live in Mason City, Iowa. Late at night in the early 70’s I was able to watch some of the movies if the signal came in. I always had to wait until channel 5 in Ames, Iowa went off the air in order to get the channel 5 KSTP signal. It’s a fond memory as a young adult to be able to watch the movies if the signal was strong.

      • Hey Phillip! Mason City is a ways out there, and I’m impressed that you were able to pull in KSTP’s signal at all. You clearly had a lot of patience to be able to wait until the Ames station went off the air. Those of us who watched Horror Incorporated late at night back then were an odd bunch — we all knew that other people who liked the same kind of movies were watching out there, somewhere in the night, but we had no way to make contact with them. The internet has made it possible to hear from a lot of people who watched back then, and I’m glad you’ve stopped by. Hope you’ll stick around.

  2. Hi Mike, on HC in the 70s I used to see a horror movie about a older, rich cripple who was wheelchair bound. He had a servant from India who used magic to restore his arms and legs but they were monstrous reptilian appendages and he went insane, killing people in the household. Very atmospheric scenes, foggy nights, spooky old mansion. It was filmed in b/w during the 40s-50s? Do you know the name of the movie and how I might obtain one? Thanks for what your doing I think it’s very cool.

  3. O.M.G!!!!!! I remember watching Horror Incorporated as a young boy in the mid-late 70s while living with my parents in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. My Dad was a big horror movie/sci-fi buff (Dracula, Werewolf, Godzilla, Mummy, etc, etc) and he would always let me stay up with him late on Saturdays to watch the creature features. Mom didn’t care as long as long as we both got up and made it to church on Sunday. Ah, so many good memories staying up with Dad and talking about the movies until he would eventually fall asleep. I was always a night owl as a teenager and my weekend evenings were spent putting together model planes (or cars) and watching The Midnight Special on Friday nights and Horror Incorporated on Saturday nights. About 4 years ago, I stumbled on the Horror Incorporated intro on YouTube. I haven’t been that excited about finding something since I was a kid at Christmas! OK, I exaggerate just a bit, but wow, was I excited to see that for the first time in almost 40 years. Now gems like this is what makes the Internet great – imho anyway. Very cool project and keep up the good work!

    • Hey Jeff! I remember that Midnight Special show too — also on Channel 5 if I’m not mistaken (the glam-rock show Supersonic was also on at midnights, though on a different channel I believe). Your dad sounds cool, and it’s awesome that he would stay up late watching these movies with you. It’s always great to hear from fellow monster kids, and good to know that Chippewa Falls is represented among Horror Incorporated fans.
