''Gelliant Gutfright''': Between imagination and desire, between reality and ambition, between what is known and what is feared, between purpose and despair, between sense and [[SophisticatedAsHell shite]], between the visible world and the inner world that straddles the curtain hung between what we know and what we think we suspect is a dark veil that waves gently between the beckoning finger drawing us into the world of what could be and [[ConfusingMultipleNegatives what never couldn't be impossible to dread]].

* ''Series/TheHunger'' had two of these, one for each season. Terence Stamp did the honors for Season One. Season Two went further by casting Music/DavidBowie (who had a key role in [[Film/TheHunger the movie]] that inspired the show) as an original character: MadArtist Julian Priest. Unusually for a Horror Host, his backstory is complicated enough that the first episode of the season ("Sanctuary") is devoted to telling it, so he doesn't address the viewer until the final sequence. Subsequent episodes use traditional bookends as he muses over the themes of the stories in question, with touches of BlackHumor here and there. He's rather elegant and melancholy for a horror host too, but that only makes his sadistic (and sometimes ''masochistic'') moments all the more unnerving.
