Not TCM, but if you have This channel (yes, This is the name), you get to see the 1972 Tales From The Crypt movie. I may have seen it as a kid, but I don't really remember. This is channel 297 on my Comcast, but it may be different where you are.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

That is some good stuff. Illustrated Man is one of the movies I missed a couple of weeks ago. I'm looking forward to Perils of Paulin and the Dr Goldfoot sequel. There's a couple on there I'm not sure I've heard of.

This TV has a scary Friday the 13th schedule today starting at 10am: Frogs, Tower of London, Twice Told Tales, Tales From The Crypt, Addams Family and Addams Family Values.

I looked up a number of those movies on Wikipedia, and apparently The Illustrated Man got lousy reviews. I'm not sure I want to see Bradbury's work screwed up.

I'll check out Bedazzled. I didn't know that the 2000 movie with Liz Hurley was a remake of this or anything for that matter.

I liked Heavy Metal 2000, as I recall. Only saw it once, immediately after my first time seeing the first movie, but I recall it holding up well.

One of these days I need to finish Heavy Metal: Fakk 2.

It's a fun movie and a fun cast with Dudley Moore, Peter Cook and Raquel Welch. I love the mundane shit the devil chooses to screw with people.

Just saw it. Moore and Cook were great and I loved the humor.

It's a shame so few people on this side of the pond have heard of Cook.

I taped Tower of London and Tales From The Crypt. Hopefully I will get a chance to watch today, though I also want to see Abbott and Costello and Tarzan.

I can't resist. Anyway, I don't trust reviews; especially mainstream reviews. I seldom agree with them.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I went ahead and recorded The Illustrated Man anyway, and I kinda wish I hadn't. What a sluggishly directed movie. Everything took much longer than it needed to. And though my memory of the original Bradbury stories is vague ("The Veldt" is the only one I have a strong memory of), I don't think it did them justice. "The Last Night of the World" in particular was badly handled.

Plus I could've done without seeing so much of Rod Steiger's exposed skin. Why couldn't Bradbury have written The Illustrated Sexy Woman instead? (Lydia, oh Lydia...)

Then again, this movie's version of "The Veldt" may deserve credit as the forerunner of the holodeck concept. As I recall, in the original story, the simulations in the "nursery" were just photorealistic animated wallpaper, like a wraparound TV screen. In the movie, they were fully 3-dimensional "electronic projections" that created an immersive environment -- and the bare walls of the deactivated nursery had a vaguely holodeck-like grid structure.
