Full Line Up For Turner Classic Movies’ Halloween Programming in October!

October TV programming is nothing to fool around with. Go big or go home is the way to go without several hundred repeats of the same movie the entire month. We need variety and with respect, Turner Classic Movies never seems to fail when it comes to classic horror for their October Halloween programming and they never go overkill on the same franchise or flick; and I appreciate the hell out of that.

From classic horror like Hammer and Universal to 80s Carpenter classics, TCM is bringing the good starting October 1. 2022 straight through Halloween along with Creepy Cinema every Monday, co-hosted by TCM Host Ben Mankiewicz and actor/comedian Mario Cantone.

Certain days focus on such gems as 60s Sci-Fi films, women in horror, and the star of the month goes to ROBOTS- which highlights such movies as Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) and Deadly Fiend (1986).

So let us all thank the trusty TCM for giving us a full month of non-repetitive classic horror that is like that old friend you can rely on.
