"Nightmare Theater" was a hosted horror movie show with John Willett as "Jonathan" on Saturday nights at 11:05pm on WSLS Channel 10 Roanoke, Virginia from 6 February 1958.

The character "was created in conjunction with the set, which borrowed heavily from the 'Addams Family' cartoons that appeared in the New Yorker magazine. He was rather straight laced and held himself with a little overextended dignity, but in the end it was a little self mocking as well." Airing for approximately one year, the show left the air in February 1959, with westerns taking its place.

There are no known clips from the show.
