With it being one of the staples of the horror film genre, it was only a matter of time before Horror Channel dedicated a month to the slasher film.
Their ‘Slasher Season’, running each Friday night at 10.50pm, starts this week, 7th April, with the UK TV premiere of See No Evil 2 (2014), following the misfortunes of a group of kids who get holed up in the local morgue, along with a mass murderer. Each successive Friday night will see such gruesome delights as Sorority Row (2009) – 14th April, Girlhouse (2014) – 21st April and Prom Night (2008) – 28th April.
These Friday night frights will be complimented on Saturdays by various delights, including the fantastically over-the-top Stung (2015) – 29th April, 10.55pm, recent remake of The Fog (2005) – 15th April, 9.00pm, the chilling Exam (2009) – 22nd April, 9.00pm and wild animal thriller Into the Grizzly Maze (2015) – 8th April, 9.00pm. It looks like horror fans will be glued to their TVs every weekend during April.
