VAL LEWTON HORROR FESTIVAL
October 30, 2015  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
’Twas the night before Halloween, and all through the house, TVs are all tuned to… well, they’re tuned to lots of things, because many, many networks are filling their Friday schedules with spooky televised treats. TCM, for example, has a night devoted to horror filmmaker Val Lewton, beginning at 8 p.m. ET with his 1942 classic, Cat People (starring Simone Simon, pictured), a sort of film noir monster movie. Next, at 9:30 p.m. ET, comes a repeat of an excellent perspective-providing documentary, Martin Scorsese Presents: Val Lewton: The Man in the Shadows, followed by several of the producer’s many moody movies, starting with three released in the same year, 1943:  The Seventh Victim at 11 p.m. ET, The Leopard Man at 12:15 a.m. ET, and The Ghost Ship at 1:30 a.m. ET. And there’s more, so stay tuned…
