    Just started on Horror
    19:55 Horror +1 - The Devil Rides Out
    Satanic scares from Hammer starring Christopher Lee. Two men discover that their deceased friend's son is involved in the occult and must battle the evil forces of darkness to save him. (1968) Classic Hammer.


    21:00 Sony Action - Seraphim Falls
    At the end of the (American) Civil War, a colonel hunts down a man with whom he had a grudge. Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan star.


    23:40 Spike - John Carpenter's: Ghosts of Mars
    Guilty pleasure. YMMV


    2340 Forces TV - V: The Original Miniseries , not a film but they are showing both parts back to back. (1983)


    So nothing much

    Monday

    12:30 Film 4 - Support Your Local Sheriff! 1969 Western spoof staring James Garner. It's worth watching for Jack Elam alone.

    14:30 Talking Pictures - The Devil & Daniel Webster 1941 haven't heard of it and don't like looking up spoilers , has good ratings though.

    21:00 Film 4 - Terminator Genisys - with the Mother of Dragons
    22:10 ITV4 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day - this is the better one of these two

    22:00 Sony Action - Starship Troopers 3
    Not a patch on the original but way better than the second one.

    Nice one, Corkie

    I also spotted a classic disaster film shown in an odd slot:

    The Poseidon Adventure (1972) on RTE2 on Saturday at 11.40am (or possibly later or not at all if the Rugby World Cup final goes to extra time)

    It starts off well but isn't worth watching once Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson head off leaving the other guys.

    This one might be a better bet

    Sunday

    14:15 Paramount Paper Moon

    22:00 TalkingPics TV Mackenna's Gold , it's a western


    Wednesday
    15:00 Film 4 Robinson Crusoe on Mars . very dated sci-fi

    Thursday
    15:10 Film 4 Sherlock Holmes: Terror by Night. not great but Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce make a great duo.

    18:15 Sony Seven Years In Tibet. Brad Pitt is a Nazi in Tibet.

    Friday
    01:50 Film 4 Ivan's Childhood In Russian/subs (1962)

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    Film 4 and +1

    Wed 13 Nov 2019 00:40 GMT

    Mon 18 Nov 2019 01:10 GMT , 02:10 GMT

    There were three movies about Abraham Lincoln released in 2012
    This one wasn't directed by Steven Spielberg and wasn't nominated for 12 Oscars.


    But if you really want to know what they won't tell you in the official histories this is the film to watch.
