Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

TCM has a sci-fi/horror marathon on Thursday:

6 AM: The Time Machine (1960)

8 AM: Village of the Damned (1960)

9:30 AM: The Manster (1962): "A mad scientist turns a reporter into a two-headed killer." This was a US/Japanese co-production.

10:45 AM: The Snow Devils (1965): "Aliens plot to freeze the Earth as a replacement for their doomed home planet."

12:30 PM: War of the Planets (1965): "Martians with mind-control powers attempt to take over the earth."

2:15 PM: The Wild, Wild Planet (1965): "Space amazons control the Earth by shrinking its leaders." According to Wikipedia, the above three Italian-made films are parts of a series and are actually being shown in reverse order. So it might be best to DVR them and watch them the other way around. (Also, it's a 4-part series, and part 3 is apparently not included.)

4 PM: Five Million Years To Earth (1968): "Subway excavations unearth a deadly force from beyond space and time." This is more properly known as Quatermass and the Pit, and is the third Quatermass movie from Hammer Films (actually adapting a TV serial, which I suppose is kind of like what Hammer did with the first two Doctor Who Dalek serials).

5:45 PM: The Green Slime (1969): "A mysterious fungus invades a space station and turns the inhabitants into monsters." This is an MGM/Toei co-production and apparently has writers in common with the Italian movie series above -- and was co-scripted by Bill Finger, the uncredited co-creator of Batman!

Also, The Monkees' Head will be on at 12:30 AM Thursday night/Friday morning.
