About Dave

Thanks for stopping by “Terror from Beyond the Dave!” I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and, being a ’70s kid, was a big fan of the horror host, “Son of Svengoolie” – now simply Svengoolie. I couldn’t get enough of his mad-capped parodies and schtick along with the monster movies he faithfully doled out on Saturday nights. I’ve never outgrown Godzilla, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and all those wonderful 50’s sci-fi films but also enjoy horror in all its forms – be it slasher, supernatural, or even some ‘found footage.’ I’m a regular at midwest conventions and horror-themed events and love sharing those experiences with readers. This site began in 2010 and won the Rondo Award for “Best Blog” 2011. During that time I’ve also written articles for Horrorhound, G-FAN, and currently have a regular WEIRD USA column in Scary Monsters Magazine. I wrote an essay on Dark Night of the Scarecrow in the wonderful book Hidden Horror: A Celebration of 101 Underrated and Overlooked Fright Flicks and co-wrote the Introduction for the 2nd Printing of Creatures of the Night We Loved So Well: TV Horror Hosts of Southern California. I enjoy doing reviews and sharing fan stories so please feel free to contact me at terrordaves@gmail.com if you’ve got something you’d like to share! Svengoolie fans can subscribe to my Sven-related YouTube Channel HERE. You can “Like” my Facebook Page and follow me on Twitter @DaveFuentes5 & Instagram terrordave1. Dinosaur fans can also check out my other site, Dave’s Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Pit Stops too!

  1. Greetings, Dave…and welcome…very nice site you have, I’m sure I’ll be making regular stops there…I would like to bring to your attention my horror host show, perhaps you’ll find it entertaining enough to include in your site…

    My show is entitled “The Midnight Massacre Theatre” and It is aired weekly on “Tuff TV” a sister station to “Retro TV”.You can visit the Tuff site to see if there is an affiliate in your area or you can pay a visit to our official grave-site as well.

    Thank you,
    Darkest Regards,
    The Sinister Minister

      • You are correct, Suh…I am quite a fan of King Diamond/Mercyful Fate…(since around 1985/86 in fact)The look of my “Minister” character was indeed partially inspired by the look of the “Black Metal” persona…Please do let me know how you enjoyed my show and if there’s any cross advertising we can do…I am always looking for new ways to promote my show.

        thanks,
        darkest regards,
        SM

  4. Greeting!

    Please add Horror Haven and The Fright Channel to your list!

    The Fright Channel has been up and running 24/7 on a better system since 10/18, and it’s been gathering a HUGE audience on TVUnetworks! You can either visit it here: http://www.tvunetworks.com/watchTV/index.html#c=91241

    Or on our website: http://www.horrorhaven.com

    Sunday, October 31st: Join us for ‘Uncle Death’s Court-Ordered Halloween Safety Special and Film Festival’!!! We’re showing 3 classics: The Screaming Skull, The Brain that Wouldn’t Die, and House on Haunted Hill. Within and in between the films, Uncle Death imparts wisdom with Halloween safety tips (yeah, I can see it going badly already)! 8pm on The Fright Channel and Saugus Community TV, Channel 8!!

    Also, join us for the premiere of the all-new, all-different The Uncle Death Show starting Friday, November 5th at 8pm on The Fright Channel and 10pm on SCTV locally!!

    We’re still working out the kinks with TFC, and (unfortunately) it requires a SUPER quick download of the TVU player plug-in, but it’s a much better set-up than Livestream was. We agonized long and hard over it, and this is just a step up from where we started, but not the end of the tech road by any means! Stay tuned for further developments!

    We are NOT to be confused with someone who took the name of TFC, started a “dot net” site and then failed miserably at it! We’ve always been at http://www.horrorhaven.com from the beginning!

    Thanks, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!

    Uncle Death

  5. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  6. Cool site !!! I learned about it from the Crimson Executioner he sends you the weekly vortexx shedule. I’m an up and coming horror host plus i do graphic for the Vortexx. I will be making a point to check here every week.
