Welcome to the special spooky edition of What to Watch! Just in time for Halloween and TMP’s annual Horror Half-Week feature, I’ve decided to change this week’s WTW up a bit by focusing on horror/sci-fi/thriller films playing over the next week on TCM and by including a fun, spooky playlist to get you in the Halloween spirit.
