The weather is slowly heating up probably thanks to gates of Hell been on Horror Channel in May. All thanks to Next month’s line up at the UK’s most popular genre fan TV destination which will host a foray of films including chilling Chinese legends, sinister sorcery, deadly zombies and a rampaging Arnold Schwarzenegger.
There are four prime-time UK TV premieres this month, which will be headlined by Caroline Labrèche & Steeve Léonard’s unusual and compelling sci-fi thriller Radius (TX: Friday 25 May, 9 pm)
Premiered at FrightFest in 2017, it weaves an ingenious plot from the moment Liam (Diego Klattenhoff) wakes from a car crash with no memory of who he is. As he makes his way into town to look for help, he finds only dead bodies, all with strange pale eyes. Liam’s first assessment is that a virus is present in the air. However, he soon discovers the terrible truth: that anyone who comes within a 50-foot radius of him dies instantly. Then he meets Jane (Charlotte Sullivan) with whom he seems to have some sort of bizarre connection. However, neither is prepared for the terrifying and appalling truth that binds them together…
There will also be first outings on British television for The Blair Witch Project co-director/writer Eduardo Sánchez’s devilish spell-binder Seventh Moon starring Amy Smart, (TX: Saturday 5 May, 9pm), Matt Eskandari’s tense, underground adventure The Gauntlet (TX: Friday 11 May. 9 pm).
