TCM Celebrates Horror History!

Back in the old VHS days, years before just about every film was available at your fingertips, like so many other horror fans, I’d be waiting for the latest TV guide or cable guide to come out around this time of year to see what titles were going to be screening, hoping to see some lost classic finally being screened that had eluded me thus far.  I can vividly remembering being so ecstatic when I started to record William Castle’s Mr. Sardonicus that was being broadcast on TNT and seeing the introduction intact. Yes, it really is those little things in life that make it special. So when we came across the huge listing of titles that TCM will be airing throughout the month of October, it brought a little tear of remembrance to my eyes.

Mr. Sardonicus

First of all the fact that these are all airing without commercials is cool enough as it is. But the fact the huge number and variety of titles that are listed here, you really can get a huge horror history lesson throughout the month. There are a ton of iconic titles that will be playing, as well as some that are a little more obscure. None the less, if you have TCM, I would strongly suggest you go through this list and double check to make sure there aren’t any here that you’ve missed. And if so, mark your calendar and make sure you don’t miss out!
