Sweet. All I have to do now is check if I have TCM.

This was a pleasant surprise last night! Christopher Lee was the BESTEST Dracula. And I :heart: Peter Cushing as Van Helsing. I own many Hammer Horror DVDs, and I never tire of watching them.

Saw them playing Quatermass a few weeks ago. It was the first time I had seen it and I LOVED it.

It's my favorite Hammer film. It's so cheesy at points yet it has great acting and a plot that makes perfect sense.

I don't have TCM. Therefore I hate you all.

You know, I was going to switch cable providers to something cheaper. Then I realized they didn't have TCM, so I made the decision to keep paying a bit more just to have that channel.

Well worth it.

I was so tired yesterday because I stayed up on Friday night and got hooked into the Dracula movies. I think I turned the TV off at 3am. I haven't watched Christopher Lee as Dracula in a long time. It made me remember why I loved the Hammer movies so much as a kid. I love the little tid bits of info TCM gives on the movie. I didn't realize Christopher Lee refused to speak like Bella Lugosi in the movies and said he wouldn't speak at all if that was on the menu.

Quatermass and the Pit aka Five Million Years to Earth*

Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. I caught it on tv as a child and it scared me silly. I have never forgotten it and watch it whenever I can catch it. I think it holds up pretty well.
