Hellraiser's Doug Bradley makes a cameo in this terror treat. There are also network premiere for Irish hit Shrooms on March 10th.

Jacob Vaughan's laugh-out-loud comedy horror Bad Milo! gets its UK TV premiere on March 31st and is a wonderful blending sharp social satire with copious amounts of slimy gore. Bad Milo! stars Ken Marino as normal nice guy Duncan, who discovers that a cute bloodthirsty creature is living in his lower intestines. Every time he gets stressed, it crawls out of his rectum to feed on the flesh of those riling him up. This was a huge hit at FrightFest in 2014 and not to be watched when eating!
