Yay AMC! I hope my DVR has enough space!

There's a ton of great stuff on Tcm this month too. Showing a lot of classic Hammer, Corman, William Castle, delicious and trashy.

Also some real quality horror too. If you haven't seen "The Haunting", "Curse of the Demon", "I Walked With a Zombie", "Mad Love" they are all viscerally affecting.

Arsenic and Old Lace, heh heh, so classic.

Awesome line up. Thanks for posting the info.

TCM ran a great F.W. Murnau silent this past Sunday night- "Phantom." So creepy & atmospheric for this Halloweeniac.

Really looking forward to watching "Arsenic & Old Lace" again. Peter Lorre plus Raymond Massey doing his best Boris Karloff impression- what's not to love?

I miss the "MonsterFest" days,when they would show a lot of the Universal Monsters and Godzilla movies. They do have a pretty strong lineup this year though.

I'm offended that AMC is showing House of Wax on my birthday--LAAAAME. House of Wax SUUUUUUCKS.

lol. That is all.

No it isn't. I love the other shows they are offering and can't wait to see the Wes Craven stuff.

Also, sort of off topic, I'm totally excited for Scream 4. I wish they'd do some Scream 4 Behind the Scenes stuff on AMC,but I guess it is still too early...

Anyway, I'm excited for most of these movies. :) Yay.

Oooooh, and Arsenic!!!! I love that movie. Cary Grant is hilarious. Such a great film. Great Halloween icons throughout the beginning of it.
