The only two horror movies they're showing on TV in my area are The Grudge and Psycho. This sucks. They used to show tons of cool movies just a few years ago. I don't know what happened. Wish I had a dish. Sigh.

Do you have AMC?

They've been showing a bunch for like, 2 weeks.

I watched The Invisible Ray last night, that was quite good.  Started watching the Body Snatcher, but it was so sad when he killed the little dog  Bluesad  Anyhow, I went to bed.

I really liked the window with night mountain image outside during one scene in the film THE INVISIBLE RAY.

Rabbit ears, & I slept right through "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"

On the upside, yesterday Jeff Schultes preempted WRIR's news & talk from 10:a-2:p with Halloween specials.
I managed to catch a remake of "The War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, performed by former Star Trek actors.
Pretty haunting, even for a cloudless day @ 1 in the afternoon in my car.

One of the local "hard rock" stations played the original last night.  It was VERY surreal and chilling and would have been fantastic if they hadn't separated it with crap neo-metal-emo-mess.  I would have loved to hear the whole thing uninterrupted.

RC,

IFC made me a big fan of Coffin Joe.  I caught all three of the films earlier in the year on the channel.  I loved them, with the exception of the third which didn't remotely work for me.

I'll bet your thinking of the AWAKINING of the BEAST...which was really off beat...and a little too artsy for my tastes.

That's the one RC.  It is a bit too artsy and it doesn't have enough Coffin Joe for me to recommend it.  The thing that was so good about the first two films is Joe.  They are black and white gothic films but Joe is much more sadistic and violent than most of the antagonists of other films from the period.

AMC was showing all kinds of horror films for Halloween, albeit with cuts and commercial breaks.

I didn't mind though.  Kinda reminded me of the good old days of watching TV up here in New York, when the now-defunct WPIX would go into "Shocktober" mode.    TeddyR

TCM and Chiller play a lot of horrors and they are in regular station line up on DirectTV if you have it.

TCM not a ton but some on weekends
Chiller a lot of campy stuff.
