SCHEDULE: Tune in to Classic Horror Movies all October with Turner Classic Movies!

October is approaching, which means it’s horror’s time to shine! Film fans already know Turner Classic Movies as TV’s best destination for golden age treasures. If you’re a classic horror fan, TCM’s October showings are always a highlight of the season. And their October 2017 horror lineup does not disappoint! There are chances to catch horror from the 20’s through the 80’s, some silly and fun, others downright terrifying.

Standouts include a two-day Val Lewton fest, October 9th-10th. The excellent documentary, Martin Scorsese presents: Val Lewton – The Man In The Shadows (2007), is included among a marathon of Lewton’s best films.

   

Our standouts for silent horror are The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari (1920) on October 9th, Nosferatu (1922) on October 2nd, and Häxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages (1922) on October 30thTokaido Yotsuya Kaidan (1959) Jigoku (1960), and Onibaba (1964) are among the after midnight lineup on October 9th and 30th, and are great early examples of J-horror. On Halloween itself, don’t miss Poltergeist (1982), and the influential The Old Dark House (1932).
