More horror wanted
I found this blog through a thread on Digitalspy. I did not sign the petition yet, I find these exercises to be often pointless. That said, I would love to see the BBC bringing back this tradition of showing classic horror movies on Saturday night. I think we need to create a new generation of horror fans and also have forgotten classics discovered. I came to horror as a movie genre somewhat late in my life, first through horror literature. (I think I did not see them earlier on my life, even though I was morbidly attracted to horror icons such as Dracula, because my parents wanted to protect me from getting nightmares). In any case, Halloween is coming relatively soon and I would love to get some good old classic Hammer or Universal movies to get my teeth on (ouch, the pun!) and to keep myself entertained on Saturday night. There is nothing like a good chill.
