Sammy Terry to celebrate 50 years tonight (10/5//12)

RUSHVILLE — Sammy Terry, that spooktacular entertainer who captivated Hoosier television viewers every weekend in the 1960’s,1970’s and 1980’s, is ready for some new “frightmares” – and his search is taking him to the Old Orchard Trail in Spiceland tonight and more. The Hoosier Horror legend will revive chills and thrills from the last 50 years as he meets and greets those who visit Eaton’s Orchard, located at 7209 S. Road 325W, just two miles south of I-70. The fun starts at dusk.

Sammy Terry will be greeting those who are brave enough to traverse the trail. They will be rewarded for their courage as he invites them to get his autograph, pose for pictures and check out his latest merchandise.

Sammy Terry started frightening Hoosiers in 1962. Last year Sammy was inducted into the Horror Host Hall of Fame as being the longest running Horror Host in American history. “One of the things that made Sammy so unique was that when he was speaking, you felt as if he could be in the very same room or just outside your window,” said Indianapolis-area resident Melodie Donovan, who is from Henry County. “You almost wet your pants and you end up laughing. That is when horror is fun.” After rising from his crypt following a long slumber, Sammy Terry seems energized by a fan base that won’t let his legacy die. Recently, he performed a sold-out stage show in Muncie where enthusiastic crowds greeted him. Sammy’s return to live events last year has been met with broad smiles from thousands of happily horrified people and fans who have stood patiently in line for over an hour to get a picture with him or an autograph. Many in these crowds were graying 50-somethings who brought their children, creating perhaps a new generation of fans for the memorable character who became must-see TV every weekend, particularly in the1960s and 1970s. Spiceland fans can revisit the chills from their earlier years by watching Sammy Terry-hosted digital shorts on the Sammy Terry link at www.Indianas4.com.
