Svengoolie is sharing his picks of horror movies for May on MeTV. Each Saturday night at 8 p.m. Eastern, he brings you his curated movie choices with some extra laughs in between. The Land That Time Forgot is first up on May 4th (which also happens to be Star Wars Day… May the 4th be with you, get it?). The Land That Time Forgot is a 1975 film about World War I, where a submarine gets lost in the unknown land of Caprona, filled with dinosaurs, and seems stuck in time.

The next weekend on May 11, fans can watch House of Frankenstein. The 1944 Boris Karloff classic has all of the monsters you love including Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula and Wolf Man as a deranged scientist recruits them after he escapes from prison. On May 18, Svengoolie is serving up Scream Blacula Scream, a 1973 film about The vampire Mamuwalde (a.k.a. Blacula) featuring Pam Grier. Finally, on May 25, check out Destroy All Monsters. The 1968 film focuses on monsters sent to Monsterland for scientific study. Things go awry when aliens unleash the monsters on the world.
