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!

Hammer, Amicus, Tigon, RKO, Universal and the independents old and new.

    2 weeks ago Comments: These old classics provided the most enjoyable and memorable nights of my childhood years. Watching the double film monster films with my older brother was like heaven on earth to a kid. No kid should be deprived of this healthy,inexpensive venue. Add to that some advertisements for monster model kits and you have happy campers out of mom and dad, and the kids.
