Old school horror flicks on TCM this month, starting... TONIGHT!

DVR free space be damned! - TCM is showing some AWESOME old school horror flicks, every friday night this month (Oct).

Included in the deal are some of my favorite films from Hammer. Those Brits picked up the American Universal's torch and ran with it - after they formed an angry mob with the rest of the villagers and chased the monster to the old mill and burned it to the ground using said torch, that is.

Anyway, here's tonight's offerings (EST):

.8:00 PM....Horror of Dracula (1958)
.9:30 PM....The Brides Of Dracula (1960)

11:00 PM....Dracula, Prince of Darkness (1966)

12:45 AM....Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (1969)

.2:30 AM....Psychomania (1973)

.4:00 AM....Daughters of Satan (1972)

Anyway, if you dig the old horror, especially Hammer flicks with Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and the usual bevy of babes...

...then you'll wanna tune in or at least DVR/Tivo them (possibly never to actually watch them via those recordings, like me... sometimes ;^]).

Oh, BTW, I have quite a few of these already on DVD, especially most of tonight's selections, but some of them coming later this month are not very easy to find on DVD, or so it seems. The Reptile, for one, is up next week, and I have NEVER seen it. I'm totally GEEKED to finally get the chance.

Same deal with Plague of the Zombies.

OK, put a stake in me... I'm done.

"Aw, cripe!"

Psychomania is a very fun film. The cheese of the skulls painted on The Undead's helmets slays me.

Shadwell, the butler, is awesome. Some parts are very funny in a grim way. The soundtrack is my favourite part, though. If you dig British psychedelic rock (Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, Camel, et cetera), Psychomania is a must see.
I put the movie on audio cassette just so I could groove on the music.

Don't pass it up! :D

Well I did DVR *Psychomania*, but skipped *Daughters* as I saw that online recently. The Drac films I have already on DVD - not like that ever stops me from recording them again anyway - ha!

Anyway, hope you guys got to see some of them. The rest of the month is chock-full of them... many that I will be watching for sure!
