“Nightmare Theater” ran on KIRO-TV (channel 7) in Seattle from 1965 – 1978. It was shown every Friday night at 11:30. It was hosted by “The Count” who introduced classic horror movies. If you were a kid and lived in the Seattle area during this period, you would have been well aquainted with The Count, who was a beloved local television fixture.
The Count was played by Joe Towey, who passed away in 1989.
This clip (from KIRO’s archives) appears to be the last episode of Nightmare Theater that was aired in 1978 – the movie feature is “Frankenstein: The True Story”, which was shown in the last episode, according to thetrashcollector.com:
