Actually, AMC's Monsterfest has been running all week...it started on 10/23. Personally, I can barely watch scissors-happy AMC anymore, with all the editing and commercials.

A Friday the 13th and Halloween marathon - this thing should be called "AMC Goes to Hell".
Sadly, I believe the verb in this sentence should be replaced with, "went".
Dees anyone here (other than Todd) still watch AMC??
Showing films that are edited, panned and scanned, with commercials????????
TCM all the way!
I also remember "the good old days" of AMC when MonsterFest consisted of old Universal films from the thirties and forties rather than the twenty Jason/Freddie/Michael Myers sequels that get re-run every year.
Personally, I have never cared for the "stab-stab-eek!" movies. When it comes to Halloween, give me the monster movies - Frankenstein, Mummy, Dracula, Godzilla, etc.
I must say I was very upset that they only showed "It Came from Beneath the Sea" only once, yet show the slasher movies over and over and over again. I just wish FMC and TCM would devote a solid-week to these movies.
Thankfully, I have a pretty good collection on DVD and VHS - some actually recorded from Monsterfest a few years ago when it was good.
IMHO, AMC went downhill with Monsterfest a few years ago (I wrote them an e-mail stating such) but for some reason, they ignored my e-mail.
I'd like to complain about them having ignored my e-mail, but they continue to ignore my e-mails.
sigh don't get me wrong, AMC is crap, but hey it's monster movies...take em while you can/ And yea what's with the crap marathon of friday the 13th, BLEH!
Bring back joe bob briggs to TV
I can honestly say that I haven't watched AMC since they made their "pact with the devil". It drives me nuts though when I come home and my wife is watching it, especially when it's something we've got on DVD.
