AMC's Monsterfest celebrates 10th anniversary

MonsterfestMy question to AMC is: how many times can a person watch The Fly in one week? Looking at your schedule, I see it's on at least three times. And it's not even the classic original, it's the 1986 remake (and it's sequel, The Fly II).

It's time for AMC's annual Monsterfest. This year (October 22-31) is the 10th Anniversary of the horror and monster marathon. There are certainly some great movies here, such as the Universal Dracula, Wolf Man, Mummy, and Frankenstein flicks, but even those can get a little boring when you're showing them 9000 times during the week. Do you not have enough great horror/monster movies in your library? Am I really going to have to sit through Gothika, Rodan, Island Of The Burning Doomed(!), and Pinata: Survival Island?

You're showing Them!, one of the great monster flicks of the 50s, but why are you showing it only once (October 24 at 7:30am) when you're showing Children of the Corn four times? Gah.

AMC is dead to me. Long live TCM! They have Rob Zombie programming The Underground starting 10/13. Real cult classics and horror films. Without commercials. Granted they're on at 2 AM, but we all have DV-R. Right? Damn, this sounds like a commercial.

This used to be a must-watch event. Now, not so much.

When they started replacing classic movies with movies like Pinata:Survival Island and Halloween III: Season of the Witch, I gave up. These hardly qualify as classics.

There are still some gems in the schedule, but where have the classics gone?

This channel should really change it's name. The only good thing on there, besides the occasional quality old movie, is Hustle.
