HORROR TV CHANNEL?
It was only a matter of time, really. Everything has it's own channel now, from animals to golf to cooking, so why not horror? Variety announced today one of many new upstarts working to get a horror channel up on the air by Halloween of next year, and they've got some good allies on their side.
Nick Psaltos and Kim Bangash, two cable entrepreneurs that have come up with the idea for The Horror Channel, have enlisted the help of directors like Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, and John Carpenter to join an advisory board they will use to determine what should and should not be on the channel.
At their annual, 'secret' Masters of Horror dinner, Hooper brought the idea up to the rest of the group, which consisted of the other two directors now a part of the board.
The channel already has over 1,000 movies to draw from for their proposed round-the-clock schedule, and Kismet Entertainment has purportedly sold the channel the rights to 13 Mario Bava movies, which shows they know the good stuff when they see it.
We'll have more as soon as it's available.
