Musty TV's Maniacal Halloween Countdown - Day 12

Come to mommy!
Now that I've kissed cable goodbye, I'm paying more attention to the weird broadcast channels that exist out there, and their offerings. Of course a lot of them are either shopping channels or foreign language, but there are also things like Decades, GetTV, Laff, and, of course Movies! (Yes, the exclamation point is included in the channel's name.)

Tonight at 7:30pm Movies! is airing Full Circle, a 1977 horror movie starring Mia Farrow as a bereaved mother living in a haunted house in Kensington, England. It's also known as The Haunting of Julia, and was based on the novel Julia by Peter Straub. (And it's clear the programmers at Movies! know this, since they're airing the unrelated but identically titled Julia, starring Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave afterwards.)

It's also available on YouTube, and you can watch that version below. And if nothing else the film serves as an excellent PSA about the value of learning the Heimlich maneuver...

I had the Movies! Channel, then my cable company dropped it and Chiller. I was not amused.
