TCM Underground

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database


TCM Underground was a weekly late-night cult film showcase airing on Turner Classic Movies. It was originally hosted by industrial rock/heavy metal musician and independent filmmaker Rob Zombie. TCM Underground premiered on Friday the 13th, October 2006 with an Ed Wood Double Feature: Plan 9 From Outer Space and Bride of The Monster. The series was initially started to attract more younger viewers to Turner's older-skewing audience. Not every film shown is exploitation cinema, but we'll list them here regardless.

We've added links to all the films shown that are currently in our database. Want to know more about these films? Just click on the posters.

It was announced on February 22, 2023 that TCM is cancelling the show, with the final installment to air on February 24th, with the final films being Plan 9 From Outer Space and the 1967 educational scare short film Narcotics: Pit of Despair.
