TCM Horror

Oh, The Horror! Fridays get more than a little spooky on TCM this month with a collection of classic fright films sure to get you into a shivery Halloween spirit. Each week, viewers will be treated to a different theme, with a full evening of scary movies on Halloween itself.

Themes begin with Haunted Houses, which include two of the most sinister dwellings ever seen on film: Hill House, the New England mansion that horrified Julie Harris and others in The Haunting (1963); and the creepy estate where millionaire Vincent Price throws a gruesome "party" in House on Haunted Hill (1959). Among Rogue Body Parts are the murderous hands transplanted by crazy doctor Peter Lorre in Mad Love (1935), and that stubborn organ in The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) that causes headaches for mad surgeon Jason Evers.

Scary Kids include the child murderess chillingly played by Patty McCormack in The Bad Seed (1956), and the British youngsters with the "eyes that paralyze" in Village of the Damned (1960). Literary Horror boasts such classics as the Spencer Tracy film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), the Charles Laughton film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939) and the Hurd Hatfield film, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945). The final theme is Val Lewton Horror, featuring no less than seven of the famed writer-producer's celebrated low-budget thrillers for RKO, along with the documentary Martin Scorsese Presents, Val Lewton: The Man in the Shadows (2007).
