Five Films to Check Out on Horror Channel This Week – 170521

As we enter another stage of opening up following the lockdown, there are still plenty of great films and TV shows on Horror Channel each week. Here are some of our picks for the next seven days:

Tuesday May 18th, 9pm - Flatliners (1990)

Often overlooked, this is a great piece of psychological terror. Directed by the late Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys) and starring Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, and Julia Roberts, it follows a group of medical students who try to discover the answer to the question: what do we feel when we’re dead?

Wednesday May 19th, 9pm - The Quiet Ones (2014)

There’s an interesting premise to this entry into Horror Channel’s Supernatural Week; a professor (Jared Harris) attempts to prove that poltergeists and other entities are caused by the person’s psyche rather than genuine ghosts.

Thursday May 20th, 9pm - The Devil’s Candy (2015)

A fun heavy metal horror directed by Sean Byrne (The Lovely Ones). You can read more about this movie in our feature here.

Saturday May 22nd, 9pm - It Follows (2014)

One of the most successful horror films of the past decade starring the brilliant Maika Monroe. A young woman finds herself being stalked by a shapeshifting entity after her first sexual encounter.

Sunday May 23rd, 10.55pm - Eat Locals (2007)

A fun, star-studded affair directed by Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ Jason Flemyng. An ancient group of vampires meet up like they do every fifty years, and the villagers will be on the menu. With Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Mackensie Crook (Worzel Gummidge), and a gun-toting Annette Crosbie (One Foot in the Grave). You can check out our interview with Jason Flemyng here.
