The Cool Ghoul has died at the age of 98. During the 50's and 60's Zacherle hosted horror films on TV in Philadelphia and New York.
Over the years Zach became a legend amongst horror movie loving kids and adults. I have grown up watching the man host films, but mainly on VHS or DVD as I wasn't in the East at the time Zach was popular.
In 1958 he recorded a record called "Dinner With Drac" which made it into the top 40. As a matter of fact it was a top 10 hit.
His DVD called "Horrible Horrors" is something I cherish and will always love.
His death comes as no surprise as he has been ailing for some time. Zacherle will be missed there is no doubt. A true LEGEND has passed on. RIP COOL GHOUL. Long live SHOCK THEATER.
