Get Ready for a Frightful February on NYX UK


Starting February 7th, NYX UK invites viewers into the dark and captivating world of "Elvira’s Movie Macabre," resurrecting the beloved horror hostess Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, portrayed by Cassandra Peterson. Prepare for a thrilling journey through a myriad of classic and cult horror films, as each episode showcases Elvira's unique perspective on everything from low-budget slashers to monstrous flicks, promising entertainment that transcends the screen.

But the terror doesn't end there! Throughout the month, prepare to be immersed in the realm of horror royalty. Chris Alexander, former Fangoria editor, takes center stage on Monday nights with "The Original NYX TV Series," offering a deep exploration into Canadian horror cinema. From the chilling depths of SHIVERS to the unnerving intrigue of TERROR TRAIN, Alexander's curated selection promises to captivate and terrify.

Meanwhile, Saturday nights belong to Alan Jones and "FrightFest Saturday Scares," where audiences are treated to discussions on Jones' favorite films, including the spine-tingling mysteries of TENEBRAE and ALICE SWEET ALICE.

Mark your calendars for February 4th as horror enthusiasts unite to celebrate the birthday of the visionary director George A. Romero. NYX UK pays homage to his legacy with a special double feature, showcasing Romero's groundbreaking works: THE CRAZIES and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. These films not only showcase Romero's directorial genius but also his knack for infusing horror with thought-provoking social commentary.

And the thrills continue with this month's premieres. The Soska Sisters' 2019 remake of RABID offers a fresh take on David Cronenberg's classic, while Peter Duffell's British horror anthology, "THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD," weaves a tapestry of chilling tales linked by an ominous house. Lastly, prepare for the whimsical and unique experience of "PUPPET SHARK," featuring an all-puppet cast that adds a delightful twist to the horror genre.
