Halloween on Horror

To celebrate Halloween, AMC Networks and Sky Media are coming together to create a FrightFest Weekend special

The Opportunity

A marathon of cinematic scares featuring sixteen of the best films from previous FrightFest events – including the UK TV premieres of V/H/S, a terrifying anthology pushing the genre in a fresh direction and Vincenzo Natali’s HAUNTER, where ‘Groundhog Day’ meets ‘The Others’ in a chilling reverse-ghost story. Also included are the network premieres of Tomas Alfredison’s remarkably moving and genuinely frightening vampire tale LET THE RIGHT ONE IN and FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY, Richard Raaphorst’s inventive freak show of gore, guts and gunplay.

About the Channel

With an eclectic mix of ground-breaking and genre-defining content including niche, cult and box office smash movies along with fantasy, sci-fi and supernatural series, you’ll be entertained and terrified.
