Be on the Lookout for Upcoming Horror Programs for November and December
Just in time to soothe your tummies after Thanksgiving, Chiller TV will air, The Future of Fear, on Friday, November 25. The two hour special, narrated by Linda Hamilton(Children of the Corn, The Terminator), delves into the history of horror, rehashing how the genre made its way into the mainstream and what the future holds for it. The program looks back at horror classics such as, John Carpenter’s Halloween, and also discusses the newest faces of the genre. Also featured are interviews with some of horror’s biggest names, including: George A. Romero, Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Allan Ball, and John Landis.
Unfortunately, I don’t have Chiller and I would love to hear how this special is from one of my readers!
A&E will air part one of the two part mini series, Stephen King’s Bag of Bones, on Sunday December 11, followed by the conclusion on Monday, December 12 at 9pm. The made-for-TV movie stars Pierce Brosnan, Melissa George, Annabeth Gish, and my personal favorite, Jason Priestly.
The movie is based on the Stephen King bestseller of the same name that follows novelist, Mike Noonan (played by Brosnan),on his journey as he tries learning how to cope with the death of his wife, Jo (Gish), while simultaneously trying to overcome writer’s block. He soon relocates to the lake that he and his wife once shared and discovers that there are many mysteries lurking there.
Santa comes early this year with the oh-so-merry DVD release of Hostel 3 on December 23. Sadly, Eli Roth isn’t behind the torturous fright-fest; Scott Speigel (From Dusk til Dawn 2) takes over as director, this time bringing the money-for-murder fun to the city of sin: Las Vegas! This time around, the Elite Hunting club finds its victims from a group of dudes, played by Kip Pardue, Thomas Kretschmann, and John Hensley, who were just trying to have fun at a Bachelor party. I guess what happens in Vegas not only stays there…it kills you too.
