    Sir Graves?

    He was a host of scary movies. I lived in Michigan and as a boy I watched him every saturday afternoon.

    He was kinda like Elvira.

    Anyone remember him?

    Absolutely, Sean. Sir Graves Ghastly was actually Lawson Deming. He's still kicking at age 87, living in Ohio with his wife of 61 years.

    Nyeeeehhhhhaaaaaaaaaa!!

    I don't recall him. The only guy I remember introducing horror films around here was Ned the Dead on Friday nights.

    Sir Graves Ghastly Ruled! I remember watching his show on channel 7 from detroit. Came in kinda fuzzy in Lansing but I loved his show. I remember his casket, his hunchbacked assistant, and he always had a glass of something with dry ice in it so it made the fog come out of the glass. I wish you could get stuff like his show or the hundreds of others from local stations all over the country on DVD, They made those cheesy 50's horror movies fun.
