12:30 AM: The Day of the Dolphin ('73): Mike Nichols film with George C. Scott and Paul Sorvino, scripted by Buck Henry.
2:30 AM: Black Moon ('75): Some kind of weird surrealist French thing directed by Louis Malle.
4:30 AM: The Raven ('63): Roger Corman's horror-comedy take on the Poe poem, with Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, and Boris Karloff.

THU 7/3

SAT 7/12

TUE 7/15
11:15 PM: Sinbad the Sailor ('47): With Douglas Fairbanks. Not really any genre elements, aside from Sinbad being a mythological character.

SAT 7/19
Noon: The Wasp Woman ('59)

SUN 7/20
2:00 AM: The Visitor ('79): Arty film about cosmic forces of good and evil battling over a telekinetic girl. WIth Mel Ferrer, Glenn Ford, John Huston, and a young Lance Henriksen -- plus Sam Peckinpah and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?
3:45 AM: Tentacles ('77): John Huston, Shelley Winters, and Henry Fonda vs. a man-eating giant octopus.

MON 7/21
2:00 AM: World on a Wire ('73): Originally Welt am Draht, an obscure early VR-themed film made for television by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Sounds a bit Matrix-y in concept.

SAT 7/26

SUN 7/27
12:45 AM: The Mummy ('32): Karloff!

MON 7/28
11:45 PM: The Seventh Seal ('57): Ingmar Bergman movie about chess or something...
