Pre-Code.Com Site News for October 2017
It’s time to bust out the pumpkins and plastic ghosts! TCM this month has a line-up of almost all the great pre-Code horror films. (Sadly, no Murders in the Zoo or Murders in the Rue Morgue — it’s just a bad month for murders I guess.) However, the biggies– your Draculas and Frankensteins– are all near the beginning of the month, so keep your DVRs ready.
There’s also a number of Buster Keaton’s MGM works showing (The Passionate Plumber being the only one probably worth the time it takes to watch) and even a few respectable pre-Codes, like Grand Hotel and Morning Glory.
I’m trying to think of anything else interesting going on… uh, next month is more Wheeler & Woolsey reviews from me, as well as a few other oddball things that are definitely not stuff that’s just playing on TCM. I’m excited that Warner Archive is soon releasing She Had to Say Yes to DVD finally so I can check it out. My daughter has a cold. She just sneezed on me. And, uh, life is great.
Patreon Bonuses for October
After some soul searching, I changed the Patreon down to one tier for the time being. With a promotion possibly in the pipeline at work and most of my spare time spent trying to get a book together, my ability to manage rewards has gone out the window. I will still try to make monthly posts, and anyone who pledges $1 will automatically get to see them. Also, I’m still reviewing Freaks this month for Christina, I just, you know, need to be in the right frame of mind for it. 😉
