As I mentioned yesterday, the month of September came and went so quickly that it was the last day of that month before I realized that I hadn’t cobbled together a look at what’s in store for us on The Greatest Cable Channel Known to Mankind™ for October. I think this may be the first time I’ve forgotten to do a “Coming Distractions,” and when I realized my mistake I knew I wouldn’t have time to get it done yesterday (more on this in a bit).
Thursday nights in October—and I do regret not being able to go into more detail on this one—the channel’s Star of the Month will be longtime TDOY fave Vincent Price. To coincide with the Blu-ray release of The Vincent Price Collection on October 22, methinks—originally, there were seven films announced in the set (Pit and the Pendulum, The Masque of the Red Death, The Haunted Palace, House of Usher, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Witchfinder General and the American version, Conqueror Worm) but apparently sticky copyright issues are keeping Worm out of the collection, according to Facebook compadre Cliff “Laughing Gravy” Weimer (and he wouldn’t lie to me, unless money was involved). And because it’s the Halloween season, Friday nights are horror movie nights (yay!). There—all you need to know summed up in one paragraph. (I ought to do this more often…)
All seriousness aside, I really do regret the oversight—it’s just that things have really been frightfully busy around Rancho Yesteryear of late: a few outside projects plus Project eBay (which reminds me—I have another auction starting at noon). I’m really hoping to get some substantial pieces up on the blog this month—some movie reviews and a book report or two—but until that time I ask that you only be patient and…hey! Someone made us a snack!
