Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Time for October, which unsurprisingly features a whole bunch of horror films:

TUE 10/1
Noon: The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962): George Pal Puppetoons!

WED 10/2
8:00 PM: Doctor Dolittle ('67)

FRI 10/4
8:00 PM: Carnival of Souls ('62): "New Wave" horror picture.
9:30 PM: Night of the Living Dead ('68)

SAT 10/5
1:30 AM: Bride of Frankenstein ('35)
3:00 AM: Frankenstein Created Woman ('67): Hammer horror with Peter Cushing.
4:45 AM: The Wasp Woman ('59): Roger Corman horror film.
6:30 AM: Captain Nemo and the Underwater City ('69, though TCM site says '70): Low-budget British film written by Pip and Jane Baker, who would later do some mediocre Doctor Who serials in the '80s. With Chuck Connors.
10:30 AM: The Gorgon ('64): Another Hammer film with Cushing and Christopher Lee.
Noon: The Devil's Bride ('68): Hammer Satanism film with Lee.

SUN 10/6
2:00 AM: Billy the Kid Vs. Dracula ('66): So, this exists. John Carradine plays Dracula.
3:15 AM: Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter ('66): Annnd... so does this. These two movies were released as a double feature.
4:45 AM: Destination Earth ('56): Less interesting than it sounds -- a promotional cartoon for the oil industry, about a Martian coming to Earth to study American prosperity.
3:45 PM: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang ('68)

TUE 10/8
1:00 AM: Throne of Blood ('57): Akira Kurosawa's Macbeth adaptation. I'm counting it as genre because it has a spirit in it, but mainly because it sounds interesting.

FRI 10/11
3:00 AM: Son of Sinbad ('55): Arabian Nights movie with Vincent Price. Hardly any fantasy elements, judging from the Wikipedia entry, but Sinbad is a fantasy character, and, heck, so is Vincent Price, so I'm counting it.
8:00 PM: Horror of Dracula ('58): The first Lee/Cushing Hammer Dracula film.
9:30 PM: Isle of the Dead ('45): Boris Karloff vampire movie. With Alan Napier.
11:00 PM: Dead of Night ('45): British horror-anthology film with Michael Redgrave. The restored full-length version.

SAT 10/12
1:00 AM: The Haunting ('63): Robert Wise haunted-house classic.
3:00 AM: The House of Seven Corpses ('74): What I suspect is a less classic haunted-house movie.
4:30 AM: Horror Castle ('63): Italian Gothic horror with Christopher Lee. Doesn't seem to have supernatural elements.
Noon: The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll ('61): Hammer takes on Dr. Jekyll. With Lee.
4:30 PM: It Came From Outer Space ('53): Jack Arnold/Ray Bradbury classic.
6:00 PM: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil ('59): Post-apocalyptic tale with Harry Belafonte.

MON 10/14
Midnight: Nosferatu ('22): The silent classic.
2:00 AM: Vampyr ('32): Another German vampire film, this one with sound.
3:15 AM: The Vampire Bat ('33): Sensing a theme here. Fay Wray is in this one.
4:30 AM: The Vampire ('57): I never would've guessed. Mad-science take on vampires, with Kenneth Tobey.

WED 10/16
5:45 PM: The Manchurian Candidate ('62): Borderline genre at best, but what the hey.

THU 10/17
9:45 PM: The Story of Mankind ('57): TCM's shown this before. Irwin Allen "epic" with all-star cast recapping human history.

6:15 PM: Dr. Strangelove ('64)

10:30 PM: The Devil Doll ('36): More Browning, as Barrymore shrinks people. With Maureen O'Sullivan!

SUN 10/20
1:15 AM: London After Midnight ('27): The silent Tod Browning film which he remade as Mark of the Vampire (above). With Lon Chaney.
