    1:45AM-Cat People
    3:00AM-I Walked With A Zombie
    4:15AM-Isle of the Dead

    Which all leads into an all day film tribute of Murder Mystery movies(10/23). Top notch programming by TCM all month long.

    Just saw all of these on DVD (some I'd seen many times before). These are beautiful films. Highly recommended.

      And I second that - bought the box set when they came out, and have watched them a few times. They really build suspense and dread.

            I saw Cat People and I Walked With a Zombie in two seperate film courses. The first was a Topics inf Film Genre course that focused on horror (where we watched and analyzed films like Psycho, NOTLD, Halloween, Suspiria, The Shining, Henry: Portrain of a Serial Killer, Nosferatu, Gojira...I loved that class) and the second was an Introduction to Film Theory course. I had never heard of Val Lewton prior to these courses and now I occasionally seek out his films.

            Oh, and my appreciation for George Romero, John Carpenter, and Alfred Hitchock was amplified.

                TCM ran a documentary on him featuring Marty Scorsese. See if you can find this; it's well worth watching.

                    I've always been a sucker for Horror marathons during the Halloween season.

                    AMC'S FEAR FEST is also kicking off this weekend.
