Wednesday December 23th, 10.50pm - Scanners (1981)
David Cronenberg - the king of body horror - had his mainstream breakthrough with this head-exploding classic. Michael Ironside as one of the telekinetic few who wants to take down a company who look to weaponise the ‘scanners’.
Thursday December 24th, 4pm - This Island Earth (1955)
A genuine sci-fi classic in which aliens contact a group of scientists to help them on their home planet, which is at war with a neighbouring race. Featuring the memorable Metaluna Mutant, this is a Christmas treat you won’t want to miss.
Friday December 25th, 10.55pm - Dr Terror’s House of Horrors (1965)
An Amicus anthology that’s perfect for Christmas night. Starring horror stalwarts Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, as well as less likely actors such as Alan Freeman, Roy Castle, Kenny Lynch, and Donald Sutherland, it’s one of the best of the portmanteau films from Hammer’s closest rival.
