Rob Carter, aka Sammy Terry, passes away



Robert Carter, known by many Hoosiers as SAMMY TERRY, passed away yesterday. I used to watch his show on WTTV-4 in the late 80s/early 90s. I remember seeing Godzilla Vs Smog Monster and the original Evil Dead, among many others. Sammy Terry's intro, where he slowly crept out of the coffin, terrified me as a child. I loved it!!! I heard he had made appearance in the past few years, even resurrecting the character (which has been passed onto another actor).

Very sad news - I used to watch him all the time as a kid - for some reason I thought it was on WGN but he was actually out of Indy I guess - so it must have been one of our local channels in Fort Wayne picking it up.
RIP.

Wow I didnt realize he worked in my hometown for a while too:

"After receiving a master's degree from Syracuse University, Carter worked as a disc jockey at a Fort Wayne, Indiana radio station owned by Sarkes Tarzian."

The reason I got into Horror right there, watched his show first then sought out the uncut versions.
