    Don't think anyone has mentioned this but...

    MGMHD, channel 255 on DirecTV, is having a pretty nice horror/sci-fi movie line-up for this weekend.

    Among them are a few Hammer classics that I have not seen on this channel before. On Sunday, November 1, Twins of Evil and Vampire Circus will be shown, with The Vampire Lovers (I think this has been on MGMHD before) sandwiched in between. I'm really looking forward to them. Never have had the chance to see Twins of Evil.

    Also a debut on this channel, from what I recall, later in the evening is The Video Dead.

    Other HD horror they'll be showing this weekend includes:

    The Burning
    Company of Wolves
    Troll 2
    Beyond the Door III
    Panga
    Last House on the Left (1972)
    Crawlspace
    Grave of the Vampire
    Raw Meat

    ...and many more.

    Not trying to be a shill for the channel. I'm just excited to be seeing some of these in HD for the first time.

    I saw the Burning On Demand and I've never seen it look so nice.

    Oh, you ain't shillin'

    I'm on a pretty basic plan with AT&T. No pay channels. The only movie channel I have is HDNet Movies. Well, AT&T decided to move that to their "HD premium tier", meaning an extra $5/month. I looked at the other channels on the premium tier, and MGM HD was one of them. Saw that Halloween line-up, and needless to say, I'm a premium tier subscriber now.
