Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 31

Happy Halloween!

Per usual, I feel like this month went by in a flash, and I can't believe it's already time to put on those costumes, and go toilet paper some houses!

But if you're the type who prefers treats to tricks, there are pleeeeeeenty of movies to choose from today. And, yes, Turner Classic Movies is choice number one, with a nonstop marathon of great flicks to choose from. Here's the line-up, from 9:15AM on:

9:15AM - The Tingler - Vincent Price meets William Castle.

12:15PM  - Dementia 13 - Francis Ford Coppola's second first movie.

1:45 PM - Carnival of Souls - One of the best low-budget horror movies ever, and probably the best movie ever shot in Utah.

3:15 PM - Repulsion - Roman Polanski directs Catherine Deneuve to insanity.

5:00 PM - Night of the Living Dead - The It's a Wonderful Life of Halloween movies.

7:00 PM - Curse of the Demon - British horror from a master of film noir, Jacques Tourner.

8:45 PM - House Of Wax - Vincent Price meets 3D.

10:30 PM - Poltergeist - I saw this 11 times when it came out in 1982.

12:30 AM - Strait-Jacket - Joan Crawford wields an ax and a charm bracelet.

2:15 AM - Eyes Without a Face - The only movie in this list I've never seen!

Phew! That's enough right? What's missing? Oh yeah---HALLOWEEN, the movie! You have two choice: AMC at 3PM--although they tend to edit their movies, and show them in the wrong aspect ratio--or on Sundance at 10PM--a channel that's a little inconsistent with how they present their movies. But, either is better than nothing?

I want to thank everyone for stopping by this month; it's been great fun! I'd like to tip a hat (on top of a severed head) to all the other blogs that participated, and give a big thanks to the guys at Countdown to Halloween for putting it together again this year.

Have a great Halloween, everyone! See you next year!
