Following the enormous success of last year's Cruel Britannia season, Horror Channel presents Heritage Of Horror, which continues to showcase and celebrate British horror, past and present, at its very finest.
The Heritage Of Horror season contains two stunning classics from the vaults and two startling brand new films, yet to be shown on UK television.
March 9th – Death Line
Gary Sherman's 1973 gruesome feature Death Line kicks off the season. Set on the London Underground, this moody shocker features celebrated horror icon Donald Pleasance in the lead role as a cockney copper. Hammer star Christopher Lee also shows up in a small cameo. This is one of Guillermo del Toro's all-time favourites.
March 16th – 13 HRS
We jump forward four decades to bring you the UK TV premiere of Jonathan Glendening's 2010 sexy werewolf chaser 13 HRS - which sees hot Hollyoaks star Gemma Atkinson turn her hand to horror for the first time. The film, which won 'Best British Horror' at the Grimm Up North Festival, also stars Tom Felton, Isabella Calthorpe and Simon MacCorkindale.
March 23rd – Blood On Satan's Claw
Claimed by many to be one of the finest British horror movies of all time Blood On Satan's Claw was originally released in 1971. Featuring an all-star cast of great British thespians this is a gritty and at times gruelling and grisly slice of prime genre product. A truly disturbing and shocking slice of 17th century horror mayhem featuring devilish and demonic behaviour and eroticism - this film is certainly not for the squeamish.
March 30th – Psychosis
We bring the season bang up to date with the UK TV premiere the psychological thriller Psychosis from 2010. Directed by first-time horror filmmaker Reg Traviss the film stars Charisma Carpenter, who found mega fame in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Here she takes on the role of a novelist who finds herself mentally unravelling.
