Horror channel NYX UK reveals a Simon Rumley Season for December


Indie film enthusiasts and fans of acclaimed filmmaker Simon Rumley are in for a treat this December with NYX UK premiering three of Rumley’s exceptional works. Screen International hails Rumley as one of the great British cinematic outsiders. The lineup includes Rumley’s intense and disturbing feature debut, "THE LIVING AND THE DEAD," featuring Roger Lloyd-Pack, the brutal slack revenge thriller "RED, WHITE & BLUE," starring Amanda Fuller, Noah Taylor, and Marc Senter, and the shocking short film ‘Bitch,’ part of the acclaimed Brit-horror anthology "LITTLE DEATHS." The screening will be followed by a special presentation of one of Rumley's early short films, "THE HANDY MAN," starring Greta Scacchi.

These three films are set to screen on Friday nights at 9 pm throughout the month. In January, NYX UK will continue the Rumley celebration by showcasing "FASHIONISTA."

NYX UK's December premieres also include Axelle Carolyn’s haunting feature film debut, "SOULMATE," starring the riveting Anna Walton. There's also the WW2 vampire horror "RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE" with Bela Lugosi, Roger Corman’s B-movie sci-fi adventure "ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTER," and two superior Brit sci-fi fantasies: "THE HYBRID" and "THE CRAWLING EYE." Silent Sundays at 6 pm feature Paul Leni’s classic silent movie "THE MAN WHO LAUGHS" and the remarkable 1911 version of "DANTE’S INFERNO."

On Christmas Day, viewers can enjoy a classic seasonal genre film, BLACK CHRISTMAS, directed by Bob Clark in 1974.

To celebrate Barbara Steele’s birthday on December 29, NYX UK will be screening "BLACK SUNDAY" at 9 pm, followed by Cronenberg’s "SHIVERS" at 11 pm.

Giallo fans can indulge in Dario Argento’s "THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS," Umberto Lenzi’s "SEVEN BLOOD-STAINED ORCHIDS," and Chris Alexander’s neo-giallo slasher "GIRL WITH A STRAIGHT RAZOR."
