Count Scary was a character created and played by Detroit-area disc jockey Tom Ryan. Count Scary would host monthly specials presenting B movie horror films on WDIV TV from 1982 until the 1990s. Eventually he would move stations as the horror host tv show format lost popularity and tv stations switched format. Even after he went off of TV, Ryan would use the character on his radio show until 2007.
This Halloween special is from the Count’s inaugural season. Let’s go Count!
