Horror Channel will be broadcasting eight premieres during May, including the UK TV premiere of THE VATICAN TAPES, a dynamic, unusual and thrilling exorcism shocker by Crank director Mark Neveldine, which will broadcast on Friday 13th May at 9pm.

Screened at FrightFest Halloween 2015, the story centres on the battle to save a young girl’s her soul after she expresses increasingly erratic and strange behaviour. It soon becomes clear that Angela (Olivia Taylor Dudley) has been taken over by an ancient satanic force and that she must be quickly purged of evil. But what nobody knows is that the spiritual crusade is not just for Angela – it’s for the entire world as humanity knows it. Also atarring are Michael Peña, Dougray Scott, Djimon Hounsou and Peter Andersson

Receiving their first appearances on the Horror Channel are the grotesque Irish comedy horror STITCHES, starring Ross Noble and Tom Shankland’s chilling and taboo-shattering THE CHILDREN. There is also a UK TV premiere of Ian Clark’s stark & scary THE FACILITY.

Other premieres this month are: the UK Network premiere of Hank Braxton’s creature feature chiller MANEATER, the UK TV premiere of Mac Carter’s frightening and powerful HAUNT, the network premiere of Norman J. Warren’s sadistic cult classic TERROR and the network premiere of Vernon Sewell’s strange and sinister CURSE OF THE CRIMSON ALTAR, starring Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
