May 2024 Horror Film Line Up Revealed For Genre TV Channel NYX UK

NYX UK May 2024

May springs into action on NYX UK with a dazzling selection of the savage, the surreal, and the shocking, headed up on 22nd May 2024 at 9pm, with the Channel premiere of Simon Rumley’s harrowingly evocative FASHIONISTA (2016), which boasts a fiercely dedicated performance from Amanda Fuller. And to celebrate the leading indie filmmaker’s birthday, this is followed by a special screening of his debut feature THE LIVING AND THE DEAD (2006), alongside an exclusive interview hosted by FrightFest’s Alan Jones.

Friday night 9pm channel premieres include STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS, a visually striking, erotically charged surreal giallo, directed by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, which steams on Friday 17th May 2024. On May 10th 2024 there is UZUMAK (2000), a Japanese horror film directed by Higuchinsky, based on the manga of the same name by Junji Ito. The film has earned a cult following for its distinctive approach to the genre, standing out as a testament to the potential of adapting manga into film. This is followed by the channel premiere of boundary-pushing Spanish vampire spectacle VAMPYRES (1974) at 11.15pm.

Another cult Spanish horror receiving its Channel premiere is DR JEKYLL AND THE WEREWOLF (1971), which streams on Thursday 7th May 2024 at 9pm.

The UK’s prime destination for horror fans is celebrating the birthdays of three grandmasters of British horror. On Sunday 26th May 2024, Peter Cushing’s birthday is celebrated with a diabolical double-bill – DR TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS (1965), at 9pm and the channel premiere of THE LEGEND OF THE SEVEN GOLDEN VAMPIRES (1974), at 11.15pm.

Then on Monday 27th May 2024, NYX UK honours the birthdays of Vincent Price and Christopher Lee. First, we have welcome showings of two Price classics – the campy, captivating RETURN OF THE FLY (1958) at 5pm and SHOCK (1946), at 7pm, which, because of Price’s chilling performance, is considered among the most memorable psychological thrillers of the 1940s. Then, at 9pm, comes a hoard of mad monks, primitive humanoids and bloodthirsty zombies and the wonderfully mesmerising Christopher Lee in Eugenio Martín HORROR EXPRESS (1972).

FrightFest Saturday Scares with Alan Jones continues, with our genial host introducing and discussing his favourite films.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love 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. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
