Does anyone recall KTUL's "Beyond Control Theater?" I believe it ran during the mid 60's and was 8's answer to 2's "Fantastic Theater."

The opening was a camera's POV as it dollied through the gate of a rickety picket fence (sound efx included shuffling feet), climbed the front porch steps of a dilapidated old house and entered the front door. Inside, a disembodied head (appearing underlit by a flashlight) introduced the featured horror film. I remember one of the films being "The Brain That Wouldn't Die."

I don't recall BCT remaining on the schedule for more than a year, but for a kid sitting in the dark and watching a small b/w TV, the show had a very creepy opening.
