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!

I'd like the BBC to bring these back as what can be better than having a few beers with your buddies watching these great old films and what better way for a new generation to discover these classics that they would maybe never bother with in this day and age?
