If you’ve been planning to watch any movies reviewed on Monster Madness, I highly recommend setting your TV to Turner Classic Movies all month. They’re the only channel I know that plays classic movies all around the clock, with none of that “paid programming” shit. The movies are all COMMERCIAL FREE and HD!
Other channels may be having their own horror marathons and showing more contemporary films, but they’re usually censored. How can you watch a slasher film censored?! But with Turner Classic Movies, you can’t go wrong. Keep the classics alive!
Here’s some of the listings for only movies reviewed or partially mentioned on Monster Madness, this year or any previous year. They’re showing A LOT more than what I have selected here. They’re still running their regular classic movie programming, but Friday nights are all horror marathons. Thursday nights are Vincent Price movies. And Saturday the 19th is a Tod Browning marathon (the director of Dracula).
I think these are all EASTERN times. Check your local listings and the TCM site for more info. I’ve also included a link to the Monster Madness reviews whenever applicable.
