Thank God It’s Satan!

This Friday, March 28th, TCM has sold their souls and lined up a diabolical double feature for you with Blood on Satan’s Claw and The Brotherhood of Satan! Two great flicks that go great together!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Also scheduled for Friday on TCM: Spider Baby, It Came From Beneath the Sea, Below the Sea (starring Fay Wray) and finally a screwball horror / comedy rarity from 1937 called Sh! The Octopus about daffy detectives fighting off a giant octopus in a haunted lighthouse.

Hahaha, great headline! Actually I just had a Satan-fest triple-feature, for which I'll be posting reviews next week (after I get back from the WHC). And two of them I know you'll recognize!

ANY IDEA IF BLOOD ON SATANS CLAW WILL BE SHOWN UNCUT?

THE OCTOPUS MOVIE SOUNDS LIKE FUN, NEVER HEARD OF IT......... THERES SO MANY OLD HORROR FILMS STILL TO SEE.

Vicar - Looking forward to any and all reviews by you... your blog is one of the absolute best and most articulate and funny. For anyone who still hasn't visited the Vicar's vile vault of voracious villainy here's the link, again:

>ANY IDEA IF BLOOD ON SATANS CLAW WILL BE SHOWN UNCUT?

Good question. TCM generally shows everything uncut but we'll just have to wait and see. I've watched versions of this film that claimed to be "uncut" and they are always anything but. Linda Hayden is meant to be seen fully nude, not just partially.

>THE OCTOPUS MOVIE SOUNDS LIKE FUN

It's a harmless little film, and though it's a bit silly and creaky and old fashioned, it's still a load of fun and has one particularly frightening transformation scene that has to be seen to be believed.

Karswell -
I notice the name ALLEN JENKINS on the SH! THE OCTOPUS poster. Perhaps that's the same ALLEN JENKINS who voiced OFFICER DIBBLE in the 1962 Hanna-Barbera TOP CAT cartoon series.

I checked IMDb and he is indeed one in the same! Jenkins had quite a career as a regular film actor for a good 30 years before he voiced Officer Dibble!

Thank's a lot Karswell!would you reccomend taping SH,THE OCTOPUS? i have my tivo programmed to record anything with Karloff,Lugosi etc.,this has no one like that in it,so should i go out of my way?. also,THE 7th VICTIM was on recently too.

Hell HP, if it's a movie you've never seen what's the harm in just taping the thing anyway? It might not turn out to be your favorite film of all time but you may find something about it to make you glad you at least saw it once in your life. Let me know what you think.

Spider Baby, really? Hot damn! Thanks for the heads up.

I finally found an mp3 of the theme online, and am beyond delighted. God, I love that movie.

Any chance of getting a link to the Spider Baby mp3?
