Bring classic horror films back to the BBC!

Television has become so bland in the last decade that it has become impossible to find any of the classic old horror films being screened anywhere, even on the BBC. Years ago, BBC2 would screen regular horror double bills on Saturday nights which featured cult movies from Universal, RKO, Hammer Films and beyond. If you'd like to see these films back on the box, please sign this petition and tell your friends to do the same!

    1 week ago Comments: I agree I'm totally fed up that both BBC & ITV no longer show classic horror, SCI-FI, film noir etc. All we get are fork out your money shows, News etc. Use to enjoy a weekend horror and classic films at Xmas. BBC now show them at 6:00am in the morning and ITV has just given up providing entertainment after 11:00pm. Rare treat to see a b/w classic Night of the Demon on 4. Even ITV4 won't show b/w episodes of the Saint, the Avengers etc. We need to get the horror channel on Freeview TV and Film 4 etc to show old movies at night, not just in the afternoon!
