Rippa and I are old men and watch too much TCM.  And we both thought there was a thread for TCM but we could not find one so...HERE YA IZ!!!!

In July TCM is showing Hitchcock movies every Wednesday and Friday.

The full Hitchcock schedule is HERE

I am glad this thread exists now.  TCM has the awesome and extremely frustrating tendency to show really great and unedited old school horror movies at an hour that no reasonable person is awake to watch them.

House (Hausu) and Eyes Without a Face (Les Yeux Sans Visage) came on at some ungodly time but I had the forethought to DVR them and they've been sitting there waiting to be watched for months.

I hope to knock out at least one of them over the July 4th holiday.

Also if you look at the schedule and go to August - it will show you who is being featured each day for Summer Under the Stars (I don't the separate easily quotable list made yet)

So like since JT brought up Horror - Lon Chaney is August 3

I actually hate 'Summer Under the Stars' because it busts up my two favourite nights: the Saturday weird underground stuff night with bizarro 70s horror films or blaxploitation flicks and Sunday night foreign films.

Throne of Blood might be the best horror film that nobody ever calls a horror film. If you want to put it on your list for October, I will throw no shade. 

Didn't I suggest that in the horror thread? 

I mean, the Scottish play as Noh Drama is pretty scary just as a pitch.

I woke up early Sunday morning to use the bathroom and TCM was showing the unedited version of Black Mama, White Mama.

WHAT~!

After that, I got into the habit of just DVRing TCM for the entire Saturday late night block and seeing what I got. 

That's why I have House (Hausu) on my DVR waiting to be watched.

Five Million Years To Earth comes on this Saturday at 8PM and William Peter Blatty's unheralded gem, The Ninth Configuration, comes on early this Sunday morning at 2:30 AM.

Set DVRs or schedule your evenings accordingly.

There's also lots of good stuff coming on during the Summer Under The Stars run.

Tomorrow is Natalie Wood Day.  Splendor In the Grass will be on while I am at work, but I should be able to catch the so bad it's awesome Brainscan tomorrow evening.

Brainstorm, not Brainscan. I had to look that up because I freaked thinking it was the Eddie Furlong joint. 

Eh.  All I remember in my old man haze is that Dreamscape was the better dreams as weapons movie because it had a snakeman monster and a Bruce Lee reference in it.

September 9th is apparently crazy ass adult animation night on TCM Underground.

2:00AM - Belladonna of Sadness

3:30AM - Fantastic Planet.

I also received an advanced e-mail that Dracula will be the MONSTER OF THE MONTH~!  in October, so I suspect that there will be lots and lots of vampire movies in store.
