List Rules
Vote up the host who did the most.

Late night horror hosts of your childhood likely served as one of your first guides into the world of horror. These hosts, who could look like glamorous goth models or decaying corpses, showed you how to embrace fear as a form of entertainment, therefore having a profound influence on your tastes, whether you realized it or not. For many of us, classic figures like Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, provided our first glimpse into the underworld.
