in the early 90's there was a show on cable -- maybe USA or TNN or one of those. I don't know how long it last, probably not long. But the idea wa this: they took a shitty movie, and condensed it down into a half-hour. They just showed you the good parts (though edited for TV) and narrated any plot points you'd need to know. The only movies I remember them airing were Troll and Pumpkinhead. I've been trying to find the name of this show for YEARS.

I've looked up any reference to it with a version of Pumpkinhead but can't find anything. The fact there's added narration makes it look like an official re-cut so I'm surprised neither IMDB or Wiki mentioned it.

nope and nope.

Saturday Nightmares were just jull horror movies played during a certain timeslot. There was no host or anything.

MonsterVision was Joe Bob Briggs' show. Again, mostly full movies, but with bumpers.

This shit drives me crazy.

I know what show you are talking about, but I can't remember the name of it. I was looking online to see if I could find what it was but came up blank on the name. Yet, I do know the show, and used to watch it. I'm not even sure I can remember what network they showed it on. Its a show where they featured like three movies each episode, allowing about 10 minutes or so showing a handful of scenes. The name is driving me crazy and I just can't recall it or find it online but I know it existed.

yeah I was starting to think it was 2 movies per episode, with each movie cut to 15 mins...

So it's not Mystery Science Theatre? Probably not, as they would heckle the film and you didn't mention that. But it was an awesome show, so I am mentioning it.

Someday I'll find it. I hope.
