Men’s College Basketball: Atlantic 10 Tournament First Round
ESPN+, beginning at 1pm Live
The Atlantic 10 men’s college basketball tournament kicks off today with two back-to-back games.
It’s Season 42 of the historic competition series, and host Jeff Probst has completed shooting two back-to-back seasons, never leaving Fiji. The two-hour premiere promises to be just as fast-paced, dangerous and physically demanding as the prior season, but also promises some new twists. “The great players take every twist and examine how it impacts their game and the game of every other player,” Probst tells. “Then they make their move based on that assessment. The weak players often get lost in whether they think a twist is fair. It’s a waste of time because you can’t change it. That’s part of the test. You must adapt. Over and over and over.” And that just never gets old. Bring on the new players!

Catch a Classic!
This cult-classic 1960 horror film produced in England but set in America is led by the always-terrific Christopher Lee and is filled with a chilling and menacing ambience. When the movie was initially released in Britain, it had the title The City of the Dead, which seems more apt given how much of an ominous character the small (and fictional) Massachusetts town of Whitewood — with its streets filled with a constant, unnerving mist and sinister-looking residents peering around nearly every corner — plays as a backdrop. No matter what it’s called, though, the film is a must-see or re-watch for horror fans. The story follows college student Nan Barlow (Venetia Stevenson), who, under the recommendation of her history professor (Lee), travels to Whitewood to do some research into witchcraft. Unfortunately, she gets to learn all about it firsthand when she discovers too late that Whitewood is occupied by the reincarnation of an infamous witch (Patricia Jessel) who cursed the town before being burned at the stake in 1692, and whose immortality is being sustained by human sacrifices. Following Horror Hotel tonight is another thriller related to witchcraft and devil worship: 1975’s The Devil’s Rain, starring Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, William Shatner, Ida Lupino, Tom Skerritt, Keenan Wynn, a pre-fame John Travolta and Anton LaVey, the real-life founder of the Church of Satan, in a minor role (he is also credited as the film’s technical advisor). — Jeff Pfeiffer

This cult favorite 1985 mystery/comedy is at least as much fun as the classic board game on which it is based. Set in 1954, the plot introduces six strangers who are summoned to a mysterious dinner at a secluded mansion, where they are given pseudonyms familiar to anyone who has played Clue: Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn), Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd), Col. Mustard (Martin Mull), Mr. Green (Michael McKean), Mrs. Peacock (Eileen Brennan) and Miss Scarlett (Lesley Ann Warren). The visitors think they will finally meet the person who has been blackmailing them; instead, murder is on the menu. The hilarious cast is also led by Tim Curry as the butler, Wadsworth, and Collen Camp as maid Yvette. Befitting the whodunit nature of its source, when Clue first hit theaters, it was released with three different endings as to “whodidit.” All three endings have generally been tacked on sequentially in home video releases and television airings.
