    Glad I snuck in Billy the Kid vs Dracula before the server crash on the 28th; hopefully some of you got the heads up while we waited for the whole month's schedule. I hate how they wait until the first of the month. Seems to always literally be Saturday this past year.

    June
    6/01 Billy the Kid vs Dracula (1966)
    6/08 The Car (1977)
    6/15 Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958)
    6/22 The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953)
    6/29 The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll (1960)

    Love me some Allison Hayes and it's a foregone conclusion then that Warner will be releasing 50 Ft Woman on Blu-ray soon. We've got a slow drip of Warners and I hope to see some oldies in HD like:
    Doctor X (1932)
    The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932)
    The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933)
    Mad Love (1935)
    Mark of the Vampire (1935)
    The Devil-Doll, The (1936)
    The Return of Doctor X (1939)

    Yeah I could just pull out my DVD set but it's way the hell over there! o_O

    August
    8/3 The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
    8/10 House of Wax (1953)
    8/17 Village of the Damned (1960)
    8/24 Strait-Jacket (1964)
    8/31 The Giant Claw (1957)

    I never did get to see Village of the Damned so that'll be a treat.

    September
    9/07 The Werewolf (1956)
    9/14 4D Man (1959)
    9/21 13 Ghosts (1960)
    9/28 Dracula 1931 [w/ added stock score]

    This would seem to be the first month of repeats all year.

    4D Man is really enjoyable so I'd recommend that. And for those of you who consider Dracula a little slow check out this version which has a score through out which can help the pacing for some.

    The Werewolf is a lost classic

    Wow talk about dereliction of duties, I didn't post October's schedule of all months!
