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 are some of our favourites this week:
Tuesday February 16th, 10.45pm - Hostel (2005)
Eli Roth’s gruelling modern classic that became synonymous with the term torture porn. A group of tourists in Slovakia are kidnapped and become the victims of a secret society that tortures and kills its victims.
Wednesday February 17th, 1pm - Sharknado: The Second One (2014)
The second of the wonderfully ridiculous films came with the strapline “Shark Happens!” The action moves to New York, with Tara Reid’s character planning to promote a book she wrote about the first airborne attack of sharks. Among the amusing in-joke are characters named after those in Jaws, such as Martin and Ellen Brody, Doctor Quint, Vaughn (the mayor), and Chrissie (the first shark victim).
Thursday February 18th, 9pm - Splice (2009)
Creepy and even more prescient, a pair of scientists experimenting in genetic engineering add human DNA with one of their animals creating a monstrous hybrid.
Saturday February 20th, 10.40pm - Redcon-1 (2018)
A zombie apocalypse is order of the day in this impressive British film, getting its first UK TV screening. Mark Strange, Katarina Waters, and Carlos Gallardo star, as a Special Forces team attempt to save a scientist.
Sunday February 21st, 10.55pm - It Came From the Desert (2017)
Based on the lo-fi video game of the same name, this is a fun monster movie that harkens back to the atomic chillers of the ‘50s. A group of motocross riders hold a celebration in the desert but stumble upon a secret underground military base where giant ants have become weaponised. Because that can’t possibly go wrong, can it?
