Robert ("Bob") Carter (born 1929) is a television personality who appeared mostly on local television affiliate WTTV in Indianapolis, Indiana, regularly during the 1960s and 1970s, and sporadically after that. Carter was best known for his portrayal of horror host Sammy Terry, which is a play on the word "cemetery." The format of Carter's Nightmare Theater
usually involved the showing of two films. During the commercial
breaks, Carter, as "Sammy Terry," would engage in camp banter with the
audience and his floating rubber spider, "George." This banter often
included some commentary on the films being shown, which included
classic films as well as many less-than-stellar productions common to
the horror film era of the 1930s through the early 1960s.
