MST Club Presents: "30" Nights of Horror
October 1, 2022 8:49 PM - Subscribe

valkane had an idea: showing a horror movie in the MST Club room every night in October, AT 8 PM Eastern! We use that room for other things on Thursday and Sunday nights, but the other nights should work out! valk's doing this by the seats of his pant, and we're worried by sudden Youtube takedowns (where we're getting our films, we've been stung before), so we're not announcing movies ahead of time. Drop by if you want to!

Our first movie was Michael Landon in I Was A Teenage Werewolf!
