The last of a dying breed.
CLASSIC HORROR - MONDAYS IN OCTOBER
Throughout the month leading up to Halloween, TCM presents a festival of shiver-inducing fright films highlighted by the premiere of the latest entry in our A night at the Movies documentary series, A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King (2011). Unlike previous entries that featured the view- point of various industry insiders, this one focuses exclusively on the one- and-only master of horror storytelling, Stephen King.
Taking viewers through their darkest hours are five full nights of horror classics, arranged roughly by decade and ranging from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) to Repulsion (1965). Also raising goosebumps will be such masterworks of the genre as Nosferatu (1922), Frankenstein(1931), Cat People (1942), House of Wax (1953) and Night of the Living Dead (1968).
Maybe I should skip Raw tonight for this.
I didn’t even know TCM had a podcast. Anyway, she talks about two of her favorite films; Rocky and The Champ.
“Boxing movies and the thematic idea that you are the one that everything is riding on and you’re in the ring and it’s there and it’s that moment and it’s all a matter of will power, you know? It’s not about violence, it’s not about fighting, it’s about everything has come to this moment and you’re gonna take the chance and go for it. That is what I love and watching those stories and… it gets me every time. I don’t know, I just have a soft spot for it.”
