Doctor Who is back! But also, The Bastard Executioner makes his head-popping debut! And also, the 80s Duran Duran-tastic spoof Moonbeam City premieres! Plus the Triceratons rear their three-pronged heads on Ninja Turtles, and…and there’s just so much. Read about it here, on This Week’s TV!

Tonight

Jug Face (3PM, CHILLER)


This low budget indie film concerns backwoods cultists feeding their own kinfolk to a creature in a pit. It’s kind of like that 80’s movie, The Pit, or that Doctor Who episode, Creature From the Pit— only this time, there’s a “pottery” incentive. It should appeal to many tastes.

Earth vs. The Flying Saucers (11:45AM, TCM)


Trivia from IMDB:

“The scene of a ‘destroyer’ blowing up is actually stock footage of the sinking of HMS Barham which occurred 25 November 1941. To not upset the British public, the Royal Navy decided to withhold an announcement until later; however, in late November 1941 a Scottish medium Helen Duncan, who had heard of the sinking through a friend, disclosed the sinking during a séance. She was eventually tried under the British Witchcraft Act, the last person before it was repealed.”
