Sammy Terry to look for new nightmares in Rushville Saturday

Famous Hoosier horror legend will be part of Corner Restaurant Halloween Street Fest

It’s October and Sammy Terry time. Terry, that spooktacular entertainer who captivated Hoosier television viewers every weekend in the 60s,70s and 80s, is getting restless. He’s ready for some new “frightmares” – and his search is bringing him to Rushville Saturday for The Corner Restaurant Halloween Street Fest.

The event – scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. – will be deliciously frightful and delightful, according to organizers, who say that they may even have a hamburger named after Sammy. Vendors, a hayride and bounce house will be part of the fun as well. Sammy will conclude his night meeting and greet fans at Eaton’s Old Orchard Haunted Trail in Spiceland from 9 to 11 p.m.

The history of the corner restaurant is as delicious as the food itself. It was once a jewelry store, then it was called Sandy’s Sandwich Shop and later the Frosty Corner. In 1972 it became The Corner Restaurant.

The Corner Restaurant is a family oriented place with home-style cooking. On “Crazy Fridays” they serve delicatessen-like novelty items along with their traditional steak and shrimp.

“The Corner Restaurant has been a popular ‘haunt’ and worn many different faces over the years,” Sammy said. “I’m looking forward to their deliciously frightful and delightful menu that features such unique menu choices as frog legs, lobster oysters and alligator turkey nuts. As I understand, they’re even going to feature the web in their decorations, just for me – the good old-fashioned kind that has nothing to do with computers.”

The Hoosier horror legend will revive chills and thrills from a bygone era as he meets and greets those who attend and invite them to get his autograph, pose for pictures or check out his latest merchandise.

Long before Freddie Krueger made living on Elm Street a nightmare and Jason Vorhees donned hockey masks in Friday the 13th movies, Sammy created screams and made his fans jump in a purer way, without the graphic effects common into today’s horror films.
