What’s on TCM: October 2016

Christopher Lee Dracula

Happy October, everyone! Hope you have lots of space on the DVR, because there is a lot to look forward to in the upcoming month.

Naturally, since it’s October, there are a whole lot of horror movies on the schedule. Since I’m really digging horror movies at the moment, I’m totally excited about this. Every Friday night this month will be dedicated to classic horror films. Christopher Lee is the Star of the Month, so although not all of his films were horror, his work in those films are very well represented. And, as if that weren’t enough, they’re also doing a Monster of the Month tribute to Frankenstein every Sunday night.

Last October, TCM did an amazing spotlight on trailblazing women in the film industry, focusing on women who worked as directors. They’re doing another trailblazing women spotlight this month, but this time, they’ll be focusing on highlighting actresses who were more than just actresses. These are actresses who became moguls, fought against prejudice, made significant contributions during WWII, fought for social change, and so much more. Don’t miss this year’s trailblazing women spotlight every Tuesday and Thursday night, the lineup looks fantastic.

Without further ado, let’s get a better look at the schedule.

Happy Halloween!  Before we get to the TCM schedule for October, it’s time for a little site news.  To celebrate Halloween, I’ll be reviewing a different horror film every Wednesday this month.  I promise it will be a mix between some typical Halloween favorites and some more unusual choices, so be sure to check that out.

Now, back to the TCM schedule.  Since it’s October, I’m sure it’s not at all surprising that there will be tons of horror movies this month.  Every Friday night is a night of horror classics from Hammer Film Productions.  Fredric March is the star of the month, which I’m pretty geeked up for.  Every Monday and Wednesday night is Critic’s Choice night, where two notable film critics pick two of their favorite movies to play.  Some of the critics include Leonard Maltin, Roger Ebert and Mick LaSalle and they’ve made some pretty great choices.
