Creature feature crematia mortem show open

Crematia Mortem was the horror host of KSHB 41's late night television show Creature Features in Kansas City from 1981 to 1988. She was the creation of Roberta Solomon, a local television and vocal talent. Usually sitting in a large wicker chair on a set consisting of little more than a dark backdrop, she presided over the evening's entertainment (B movies), commenting and participating in gags sometimes related to the film. Wearing a long black wig and pale make-up, a black dress with a purple, red, or blue satin corset, the emphasis here was camp.


On October 9, 1986, KSHB became a charter affiliate of the Fox Broadcasting Company. As Fox began to provide more content to the station, the show's time slot was pushed back from 10:30 pm to midnight, or even later. As a result, viewership lagged and the show was cancelled.

The opening theme was written by Iris Byrd, Fort Scott, Kansas.
