Turner Classic Movies Slash-A-Thon Sat. Oct. 25th

Get those VCRs ready.  TCM is going to have an all night slasher orgy Saturday, October 25th.  Here’s a list of the classic slashers in the line-up (all times Eastern Standard):

Psycho 8:00 P.M.

Peeping Tom 10:00 P.M.

Strait-Jacket 12:00 A.M.

Honeymoon Killers 1:45 A.M.

Homicidal 3:45 A.M.

I highly recommend Strait-Jacket and Homicidal, two William Castle slashers with killer twist endings.  You can check out an excellent review for Strait-Jacket at http://finalgirl.blogspot.com and I have a review of Homicidal floating around somewhere on Horror Yearbook.

Peeping Tom is a slasher I’ve read about but never seen, so I’m excited to see if the film lives up to it’s notorious reputation.  Don’t know much about Honeymoon Killers other than it’s based on a real couple of cut-ups.

  1. Here’s the link to Thomas’ review:

    Enjoy!

    TCM kind of way rules over AMC, dontcha think?

  2. That is a great lineup. It’s about time they put some classic horror on TV. Of those movies Peeping Tom and Homicidal are the two I am most excited about. One, they are both great movies and two, neither is on TV often. I’ll be watching them.

  3. Thanks for posting that link, Amanda. I can remember when AMC was a great station, but that was about a decade ago. I’m glad TCM is showing more horror and cult films (The Apple) of late.

  4. Psycho 8:00 P.M.

    Peeping Tom 10:00 P.M.

    Two of the best films ever made. I have them on DVD so I won’t be watching.
