Hammer Horror on TCM in October 2017

If there are two things I love, it is Turner Classic Movies and the old Hammer Horrors. As if it wasn't already special enough as the month of Halloween, every October TCM shows a tonne of classic horror movies, including those produced by Hammer Films. Below I have listed the Hammer movies they are showing this October and the times they are showing. Note that all times are for the Central time zone.

For those new to Hammer Horrors, aside from the obvious Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Dracula (1958), I would recommend checking out The Brides of Dracula (1960), The Devil Rides Out (1968), The Mummy (1959), and The Plague of the Zombies (1966). In my humble opinion, they number among the best films ever made by Hammer. Of course, one should try to watch all of them (even the ones that aren't that good).
