The Creature Double Feature Movie Guide

CDF1 (2)

The Creature Double Feature, on WLVI channel 56 out of Boston, was one of my favorite shows growing up (see my original post HERE). It ran from 1975 until 1984, offering some of the greatest monster movies of all time to the children and adults living in New England. While working on this movie guide, showing each week’s double feature, I noticed two very interesting things. First off, the program director was very good at pairing movies up that were similar, either in title or in subject matter. Second, the classic Universal monster movies did not start to be shown until 1980, six years into the show’s run! Also in 1980 saw a wider variety of Godzilla movies and other films that had not been shown in previous years.

In addition to the weekly double features, channel 56 would also often show a monster movie on Saturday night, calling it Creature Feature. It ran for five seasons and changed time slots a few times. On occasion the station would also run a Creature Week, showing a monster movie each night, Monday through Friday, at 8 PM. Then in 1983, from January 22 until June 18, channel 56 went to a single movie starting at 12 PM before returning to the double feature format at the end of June. Then it ran as a double feature until September 24 when it again went back to a single weekly film for the remainder of the year. Though most of these showings were at noon, there were some weeks when it ran at 2 PM and even 4 PM. For the remainder of the show in 1984, the format stayed as a single movie per week.

Lastly, the Creature Double Feature was resurrected in 2006 and 2007 thanks to car dealership owner Ernie Boch, JR, who was a huge fan of the show growing up. Boch dressed up as The Ghoul, bringing back the horror hosted format of the Creature Double Feature as done originally by the Son of Svengoolie. The first program of the new series aired on June 24, 2006. The two films shown on this occasion were Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster and The Giant Gila Monster. A second episode aired on October 28, 2006, featuring 1973’s Horror Express followed by the original 1968 film Night of the Living Dead. The final showing to date was on October 27, 2007 with the American International Pictures’ (A.I.P.) movies Gammera the Invincible (a.k.a. Gamera) and Attack of the Monsters.

This list has been quite exhaustive putting together and if there are any corrections to be made, please let me know. Like for instance, I remember the movie Squirm (1976) being shown more than this list says and I thought the movie They Saved Hitler’s Brain (1968) and THEM! (1955) showed multiple times. This blog is definitely a work in progress and if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to get ahold of me via the contact page. Thanks for reading!
