More televisual horror/ SF

A quick reminder for tonight and tomorrow - more History of Horror plus Brides of Dracula tonight, plus Mark Gatiss' adaptation of HG Wells' The First Men in the Moon tomorrow. (Given that I am frequently disappointed by his stuff because it's so close to something I'd love, I shall be prepared to watch it anyway. It beats the mind-numbing awfulness of yet another telly talent show.)

Brides... is a Hammer film. I love Hammer films. A lot of people are unable to see beyond the fact that they're old enough to look dated, not quite old enought to look stylish, but many of the early ones were actually very good. There's no Christopher Lee, but Peter Cushing is there contributing restrained elegance as always.
