FEARnet, a multimedia horror movie service, launches appropriately enough this coming Halloween. Called "the first multiplatform horror network," FEARnet will offer more than 1,000 horror movies from the Sony and Lionsgate libraries as video on demand, online and over mobile devices.
Among the network's offerings: Bram Stoker's Dracula, Flatliners, Night of the Living Dead, Swamp Thing, Texas Chainsaw: The Next Generation, Single White Female, Children of the Living Dead and The Blob.
FEARnet On Demand will feature about 200 titles a year, with more than 70 hours of programming a month.
Online, FEARnet.com will offer a video-rich environment packed with free movies, interactive community features and fresh original content. FEARnet.com will also offer nine free feature-length films and 200 shorts for free streaming, as well as more than 50 downloadable movies to buy or rent a month.
On mobile devices, users can visit mobile.FEARnet.com or wap.FEARnet.com, a WAP-enabled Web site for mobile access, which includes news, reviews and real-time polling.
