To save you getting lockdown blues, we’re going to be giving you our picks of what to watch on Horror Channel each week. Here’s some of our favourites this week:
Tuesday November 10th, 2.40am - 100 Bloody Acres (2012)
One for the night owls, this Australian horror-comedy should be better known than it is. It revolves around brothers Reg and Lindsay, who run blood and bone fertiliser company. No prizes for guessing what eventually goes into their mixture. It’s a little like an Antipodean Tucker & Dale vs. Evil at times, and is plenty of fun.
Thursday November 12th, 9pm - Tremors (1990)
Ron Underwood’s comedic monster film has become a classic amongst film fans, and rightfully so. Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward fight giant subterranean, sharp-toothed worms that have started terrorising their small town of Perfection, Nevada. It spawned plenty of sequels, but the original is the best and always worth a watch.
Friday November 13th, 10.35pm - Hollow Man (2000)
Celebrated action director Paul Verhoeven’s updating of The Invisible Man stars that man Kevin Bacon again, as Sebastian, the test subject of a new formula that renders the subject invisible. It does go to horrendous level at times but Sebastian’s descent into madness is both exciting and terrifying.
Saturday November 14th, 9pm - The Exorcist III (1990)
The original writer of The Exorcist, William Peter Blatty, goes behind the camera to direct this sequel to his tale of possession. Part police procedural and part demon-fighting, as the evil spirit of a serial killer has taken over the body of Damien Karras (Jason Miller), the priest from the first film. Overblown it may be, but it does contain one of the best scares in modern cinema.
Sunday November 15th, 6.50pm - The Blob (1958)
The original icky terror starring a pre-fame Steve McQueen and a creeping, gloopy mess from outer space that consumes everything in its path. It also includes one of the grooviest theme tunes to come out of the ‘50s sci-fi boom. The famous sequence in the cinema is not to be missed!
