Commander USA's Groovie Movies is a movie showcase that was hosted by Jim Hendricks as "Commander USA" and ran weekend afternoons on the USA Network from 1985 to 1989. The Commander was a great horror movie host in the tradition of Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs, my other two favorite horror hosts. I remember many great Saturday's watching the USA Network. I really wasn't interested in the movies, I just loved the Commander's comedy bits before/after the commercial breaks.
In the first (and only actually) Halloween special, the Commander hosts the 1959 science fiction horror film The Alligator People starring Lon Chaney Jr. You can watch the full Halloween movie/special below:
