Five Films to Check Out on Horror Channel This Week – 070621

Despite the weather getting better, we still love sitting in front of the box with the great films and TV shows on Horror Channel each week. Here are some of our picks for the next seven days:

Tuesday June 8th, 9pm - Resident Evil (2002)

The adaptation of the hugely successful video game made an icon out of Milla Jovovich, solidifying her success from The Fifth Element. Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, it brought the Umbrella Corporation and T-virus into the cinematic world and spawned five sequels.

Wednesday June 9th, 12.50am - 100 Bloody Acres (2012)

The Australians really know how to make off-beat horror comedies. This one has fertiliser manufacturers finding a new ingredient for their mix: human remains. As funny as it is gory, it’s well worth staying up for.

Thursday June 10th, 9pm - A Good Marriage (2014)

Based on a novella by Stephen King, a woman finds out the secret her husband has been keeping for 25 years and must do whatever it takes to keep her children from finding out. Directed by Peter Askin (Trumbo).

Saturday June 12th, 9pm - Rabid (2019)

Jen and Sylvia Soska - the Twisted Twins - take on fellow Canadian David Cronenberg’s classic tale of body horror. A young fashion designer finds her luck change when she undertakes an experimental stem-cell procedure following a horrific accident. Full of fun and gore, keep your eyes peeled for some more nods to Cronenberg. Read our interview with the Soska Sisters here.

Sunday June 13th, 8am - Tremors (1990)

A perfect reason to get up early (or watch hungover from the bed), this fun creature feature has Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward fighting underground monsters who threaten to wipe out Perfection, their small desert town. A true cult classic that is eminently re-watchable.

Tune into Horror Channel on Sky 317, Virgin 149, Freeview 68, Freesat 138.
