Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 11

I was happy to see that when IFC aired "The Shining" on Sunday, they did not cut out the naughty bits, as it were. They still air commercials, which is a bummer, but hopefully you've got a DVR, or Betamax, and can just record and skip that nonsense.

Because tonight's movie is something that, were it to be censored, would just be silly. It's David Cronenberg's "Shivers," (or, as it was known in the U.S., "They Came From Within"), and it's basically a horror movie about sex and a killer venereal disease. So. Yeah. With the naughty bits cut out, it would just be a bad 70's movie set in an ugly Canadian highrise. Watch it at 10:30 P.M. on IFC.
