Five Films to Check Out on Horror Channel This Week – 300821

Here are five great reasons to tune into Horror Channel this week….

Wednesday September 1st, 10.50pm - Sleepwalkers (1992)

Written exclusively for the big screen by Stephen King and directed by Mick Garris (Psycho IV: The Beginning), this story follows the final two shapeshifting energy vampires in existence. Brian Krause and Alice Krige play the son and mother vampires. Keep an eye open for a host of famous genre directors - as well as King and Mark Hamill - in cameos.

Thursday September 2nd, 11pm - Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994)

Sure, it’s not in the same league as Tobe Hooper’s movies, but where else would you see Renée Zellweger being a victim of Leatherface and Matthew McConaughey?  

Friday September 3rd, 9pm - Howl (2015)

Director Paul Hyett turns his attentions to the werewolf genre in this cracking British horror. There are plenty of familiar faces on board the derailed train stranded near a forest who are set to become a buffet car for a group of lycanthropes.

Saturday September 4th, 10am - 3pm - The 4400

A chance to catch up with the midweek episodes from Season Two of the hit show with back-to-back episodes.

Sunday September 5th, 9pm - The Exorcist III (1990)

Hollywood legend George C. Scott stars in this sequel directed by the writer of the original novel William Peter Blatty. He plays a police lieutenant investigating a series of murders that bear a striking resemblance to those committed by a dead serial killer. We’re not even going to mention that scare. Damn.
