There are several channels offering Halloween-esque programming during the month of October, but there is no other that offers the quality and quantity that does Turner Classic Movies; they will be showing a number of my favorite vintage horror themed films, including some from famed Hammer Studios.  This weekend kicks off with one of the best Hammer Studios productions, Horror Of Dracula (check out the trailer here), which is superbly acted by Christopher Lee in the titular role, and Peter Cushing as vampire hunter Dr. Abraham Van Helsing; in fact, this marks the first time Lee and Cushing would be paired together in these roles.  Take a look at the schedule below, set your DVR or grab some popcorn, take a seat and get ready to be entertained.  In the event you do not have access to TCM I still highly recommend all of these films, especially Horror Of Dracula, check out canistream.it or your local video rental store (yes they still exist).
