NYX UK to screen explicit horror anthology series THE HUNGER

NYX UK shows appetite for explicit horror with anthology series THE HUNGER, plus there are channel premieres for SISTERS, DARK TOUCH, GRIMM LOVE and THE DEMONIACS.

Coming to NYX UK on Thursday nights at 11pm is THE HUNGER, the horror anthology series that ran from 1997 to 2000, captivating audiences with its feast of eroticism, horror, and the macabre. The first series features stories that range from a young man’s eerie encounter with a carnival, a tragic love story entangled with disability and dependency, to forbidden love with a vampire, a chef's sinister culinary journey, and a newlywed couple's horrifying discovery at a remote inn. Familiar faces include Timothy Spall, Daniel Craig, Margot Kidder and Amanda De Cadenet. Exec produced by Ridley Scott, the first series is hosted by Terence Stamp.

Fridays nights continues to explore the realm of Euro exploitation  horror and the latest addition is the channel premiere of Jean Rollin’s THE DEMONIACS, a vampiristic mix of sensuality, the supernatural, and psychological torment.

Friday 9th March is International Women’s Day and to mark the occasion NYX UK is streaming the channel premiere of DARK TOUCH, Marina de Van’s harrowing, Ireland-set supernatural tale of haunting trauma and family tragedy.

The UK’s prime destination for horror fans is also celebrating David Cronenberg’s birthday on Friday 15th March with a double bill of two of his classic and much-loved movies – RABID and SHIVERS, both of which explore Cronenberg's signature blend of body horror, surrealism, and sexual exploration.

There are two more channel premieres this month. De Palma's 1973 thriller SISTERS weaves a riveting tale of suspense, identity, and madness, with Margot Kidder in a memorable dual role.  Then there is GRIMM LOVE, directed by Martin Weisz, which delves into the harrowing depths of human depravity and obsession, inspired by the true and unsettling story of Armin Meiwes, the German cannibal.

Wednesday nights continues with ELVIRA’S MOVIE MACABRE, which revives the iconic horror hostess Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, as portrayed by Cassandra Peterson and  FrightFest Saturday Scares with Alan Jones continues, with our genial host introducing and discussing his favourite films, including THE BOOGEY MAN (1980).
