Oh, that's right, it's October again

So I was looking at the TCM schedule to see if there was anything interesting worth blogging about. There don't seem to be too many shorts on the schedule right now, which was the first thing that struck my eye. The second was tonight's prime time lineup: Haunted Houses.

And that's when it hit me. Now that we're in October, we've got Halloween rapidly approaching, which means that all sorts of channels are going to be bringing out their horror-themed stuff. Why should TCM be any different? Indeed, it looks as though every Friday in prime time this October is going to be given over to nights chock full of horror films. In addition to this first Friday's theme of haunted houses, the other themes as best I can tell:

October 9: Disfigurement
October 16: Children playing a large part
October 23: Literary adaptations
October 30: Val Lewton

Also, much of the morning and afternoon schedule will be horror films on the 29th and 30th, with all day Halloween also being given over to horror.

A few of the Friday night selections might not be traditional horror, especially The Hunchback of Notre Dame on the 23d, but there's still some moderately frightening visuals or characters in these films, I think.

I just hope you all like horror films or female directors since those are taking up so much of this month's TCM schedule.

I haven't had TMC in quite some time (don't have cable). Times like this is when it sucks.
