Classic Horror - Wednesdays in October

Once again, in the month culminating with Halloween, TCM offers up a spooktacular scarefest of fright films, showcasing some of the genre's great actors, themes and studios-including Universal, the film company most closely associated with classic horror.

Each Wednesday features a different theme. We begin with a salute to Lionel Atwill, the English actor who was a stalwart of horror movies of the 1930s and '40s, including Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) and Doctor X (1932), co-starring Fay Wray, one of the great "scream queens" of Hollywood horror.

Hauntings would be incomplete without The Innocents (1961), with Deborah Kerr in a brilliant turn as a turn-of-the-century governess who is either haunted or deluded--you be the judge! Hammer Horror celebrates the deliciously macabre offerings of the 1950s and '60s from Hammer Films including Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Horror of Dracula (1958) and The Devil's Bride (1968, aka The Devil Rides Out).

Scare specialist Edgar Allen Poe gets his own day of darkness with such signature titles as The Raven (1963), Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), and the TCM premiere of the 1949 film The Fall of the House of Usher.

Our fright festival ends with such incomparable classics of Universal Horror as Frankenstein (1931) and The Wolf Man (1941), along with the TCM premiere of The Mummy's Hand (1940), which mixes comedy with its chills.
