The one and only, Sammy Terry with Steve Pyatte
Godspeed, Sammy Terry (Bob Carter) December 4, 1929- June 30, 2013. You will be missed, but never forgotten.

Steve Pyatte, the owner of this site, became interested in Frankenstein and all of the other classic horror and science fiction films by watching Sammy Terry's Nightmare Theater on WTTV 4 in Indianapolis, Indiana as a young boy. Thanks for the memories Sammy. Watching Sammy Terry inspired Steve to collect classic monster action figures.

Steve had the honor of meeting and knowing Sammy Terry. He even got one of his collectible Frankenstein figures autographed! (see photo left)

Sammy Terry is one of Steve's childhood heroes because Sammy shared the classic horror and science fiction films!
