Hi there, horror movie fans!
Welcome to the official site
of the Bowman Body and the documentary film, HI THERE HORROR MOVIE FANS.
Back in 1970, producer Bill Bowman was conscripted by WXEX . . . The BIG
8! . . . to host horror movies for boils and ghouls in central Virginia.
It was the first exposure many impressionable young people in the area had
to Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and The
Mummy, as well as many less than classic "classics."
The Bowman Body hosted
Shock Theatre from 1970-1976 in the Richmond - Petersburg market on
Friday and Saturday nights, and was so popular his program beat out Johnny
Carson in the time slot! Later, Bill went on to host Cobweb
Theater in Charlottesville (1977-1979) and Monsterpiece Theatre
in Fairfax, VA (1982-1987).
