Oh, man, this really is a sad day for horror. The genre’s longest-running provider of high definition horror, Monsters HD, will be officially shutting its doors later this month. We knew this was coming when Dish Network stopped carrying Voom, which Monsters was part of, on its network but held out hope that something might save them. Alas, it was not to be.
Still working out the final details of your Thanksgiving Day menu? Trying to find the perfect appetizer and dessert? Look no further than the recipes listed in Monster HD's "Thanksgiving Day of the Dead" widget!
We previously told you about Monsters HD's "Thanksgiving Day of the Dead", which features the online debuts of George A. Romero's classic Day of the Dead along with Robert Kurtzman's fun ride known as The Rage. To help celebrate the holiday, the network, in conjunction with Amok Time, is sponsoring a very badass contest.
Even though Dish Network is no longer home to Monsters HD, it's still alive and well on the Net (and Cablevision), as evidenced by the press release we received today. This Thanksgiving Monsters HD invites you to celebrate with a zombie marathon!
What is it about horror themed channels? This idea just seems to be doomed. Monsters HD was and is the only true channel out there dedicated to our genre. Unfortunately their main platform has just pulled the rug out from under them.
