The Classic Horror Campaign gains more signatures and supporters every day and top British horror film publication "Shock Horror Magazine" features us in their brand new issue two, now available to buy from their website and selected specialist stores. "Shock Horror" covers horror both old and new and this latest issue includes a retrospective on Hammer Films' Christopher Lee, UK animated horror "Mark Macready", an in-depth look at Arrow Video distibutors, video nasties, horror tattoos, a comic strip, tons of dvd and book reviews and a whole lot more. Well worth a look I reckon!
We have also received some superb coverage in the Halloween edition of spooky magazine "Haunted", which is available to buy in WH Smith newsagents as well as from the Haunted website. This magazine looks at all the latest happenings in the world of the paranormal, alongside coverage of ghosts, scary events, horror films and more.

I think it's time yet again for all us classic horror fans to rejoice as we score another publicity coup! BBC One's popular Sunday afternoon show "Points of View" ran a piece on classic horror film fans and BBC4's excellent "History of Horror" documentary series on Sunday 17th October. The great news is that our Classic Horror Campaign and petition was prominently featured and portrayed in a positive light. For the next few days, the BBC's interview with Cyberschizoid can be viewed on BBC iPlayer
We have also been featured in issue two of brand new UK horror publication "Shock Horror Magazine" and the widely distributed paranormal magazine "Haunted". Not only that, but the amount of blogs, websites and internet forums featuring the classic horror campaign is growing in leaps and bounds every single day!  Check out some of the links below -

Don't forget that BBC4 continues it's horror season over the next couple of weeks with "History of Horror" parts two and three as well as screenings of "Brides of Dracula" (1960), "The Quatermass Xperiment" (1955) and "Dawn of the Dead" (1978).

Looks like the BBC is finally listening to classic horror fans with BBC4's 3-part "History of Horror" series about to air. The documentary is fronted by "League of Gentlemen's" Mark Gatiss and episode one is being screened Monday October 11th at 9pm, with episodes two and three to follow at the same time on 18th and 25th October. Make sure you tune in!
As well as this excellent documentary, BBC4 are also screening some classic horror movies this month! First up is "The Bride of Frankenstein"(1935) which airs straight after episode one of History of Horror at 10pm.
Next is "Cat People" (1942) on October 13th at 10:45pm. A truly atmospheric exercise in suspense, this is still a genuinely frightening motion picture and if you've never seen it, make sure you watch this rare television screening!
"I Walked With a Zombie" (1943) is being shown at midnight on the 14th October so you may need copious amounts of coffee to stay up for this one!
And that's not all! On Monday 11th October, after the "Bride of Frankenstein" screening, there is a documentary called "Transylvania Babylon", which takes a humorous look at movie vampires!
So show your appreciation for these wonderful documentaries and classic movie screenings! The more people who watch these, the bigger chance we have of the BBC bringing back the Horror Double Bill as a regular Saturday night event! Spread the word and email the Beeb to let them know how much we appreciate their dedication to classic horror! Enjoy!
