Horror Channel launch “Sci-Fear” season

by Phil Wheat


No one will hear you scream on Saturday nights this February as Horror Channel launches a Sci-Fear Season with four ultimate science-fiction shockers, including the UK TV premiere of William Eubank’s The Signal starring Laurence Fishburne.

There are also network premieres for Christian Alvart’s Lovecraftian survival thriller Pandorum, starring Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster, and John Bruno’s visually stunning chiller (and underrated classic) Virus, based on the comic book by Chuck Pfarrer, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland. Plus there’s another showing of eXistenZ, David Cronenberg’s enigmatic body horror, starring Jude Law, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Willem Dafoe and Ian Holm.

The Sci-Fear Season runs from Sat 4th Feb to 25th Feb at 9pm.

There are also five further network premieres this month including Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Eli Craig’s endearingly cheeky tribute to suspense and slasher classics; Saw IV, Darren Lynn Bousman’s bloodiest of the popular franchise; Peter Hyams’s museum monster-chaser The Relic, starring Tom Sizemore; John Erick Dowdle’s REC-inspired Quarantine; and Marcos Efron’s 2010 gripping remake of And Soon The Darkness, starring Amber Heard.
