If you were asleep during the wee hours of the morning, you missed out on a fun dialogue that took place on Twitter during the Turner Classic Movies broadcast of NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS. The film aired this morning at 2 a.m., and the #TCMParty gathered on Twitter to share their thoughts on the film.

A few of us (cough cough) actually gathered at 2 a.m. the previous morning, though, thanks to the confusing scheduling format of TCM's website. Even though the film has long been slated to air at 2 a.m. Oct. 23, TCM counts the early morning hours as part of the previous day's cycle. In other words: 2 a.m. Oct. 23 is actually 2 a.m. Oct. 24. Patrick McCray and I found this out the hard way on Thursday morning. We spent about half an hour chatting about NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS, while the regularly scheduled #TCMParty was discussing John Carpenter's THE FOG. Oops

When the film began at it's allotted (if cryptic) time this morning, though, fans turned out in solid numbers, despite the punishing viewing hour. It was my first of these kind of "live" events and I had a blast. Below are some of the highlights from the NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS #TCMParty.
