Hammer Films on TCM in October 2019

Every October is a treat for fans of both classic horror and Turner Classic Movies. This is particularly true of fans of Hammer Films, as TCM shows several movies from the legendary studio every Halloween season. This year is no different. Among the highlights for me this year are The Nanny, in which Bette Davis plays a nanny about as far from Fran Fine as one can get; the classic Dracula, known as The Horror of Dracula here in the Colonies; and The Plague of the Zombies, one of the best zombie movies ever made (it features real zombies, not the living dead of George Romero and his imitators).

Without further ado, here are the Hammer Films airing on TCM in the coming weeks. All times are Central.
