Saturday nights in August just got scarier as Horror Channel ushers in four UK premieres plus there’s a network premiere for Anthony DiBlasi’s CASSADAGA.
There are first TV showings for Josh C. Waller’s all-female fight-to-the death thriller RAZE, Paul Soter’s house-haunted DARK CIRCLES, Jason Cuadrado’s shock-ridden DEVIL MAY CALL and the well-reviewed supernatural chiller THE TORMENT, from Andrew Cull & Steve Isles.
Plus, from Anthony DiBlasi, the writer/producer/director of Clive Barker’s Dread and the up-and-coming FrightFest presentation Most Likely To Die comes CASSADAGA, a uniquely twisted disturbing nightmare, which will have audiences riveted and repulsed at the same time.
