AFI Silver Theatre: Every Other Day Is Halloween
AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center
Silver Spring, MD
Hosted by: Midsummer Night’s Scream II
Every Other Day Is Halloween is director C.W. Prather‘s documentary about Count Gore De Vol, the beloved Washington, D.C. TV horror movie host. Portrayed by Dick Dyszel, De Vol was a major cult celebrity in the nation’s capital during the ’70s who fell victim to ’80s media consolidation.
After being tossed off the air, De Vol turned to the Internet where he has led a renaissance of horror movie hosting. Also, the “Other” of the title refers to other characters Dyszel portrayed on TV, including Bozo the Clown and the sci-fi themed kids show host Captain 20.
