Today we have "Who Slew Auntie Roo?"
(which is airing as "Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?"). Alas, it actually aired early, early this morning at 12:20am on Retroplex, but it will be repeated on October 8th at 2:05am. Set those TiVos! This is a horror movie take on the "Hansel and Gretel" fairytale, starring Shelley Winters as a crazy widow living with the mummified remains of her dead daughter. She soon lures a similar looking girl into her lair, but the similarities to "Hansel and Gretel" are not lost on the girl's brother...
This falls into the genre of "crazy lady" pictures starring aging actresses, such as "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" and "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte." It's not as good as those, but Winters always plays insane exceedingly well.
