Not to be outdone by Syfy’s “31 Days of Halloween,” IFC has its own October gimmick in the works: “Wake Up and Smell the Evil,” which unleashes B-movie horrors every weekend morning this month.

The programming stunt isn’t just a tie-in for Halloween—it’s also a chance to promote IFC’s new horror comedy, Stan Against Evil, which looks like it’ll have some midnight-monster-movie leanings itself. (It previews October 31, then officially starts November 2.)

Any of the above films would make for enjoyable viewing—The Hills Have Eyes 2 may be one of few moments in cinema history that features a flashback remembered from a dog’s POV—but a really fun one is 1964's Horror of Party Beach, which got the MST3K treatment back in 1997. Here’s the trailer:
