FEARnet: A Call to Arms

FEARnet: A Call to ArmsThose of you who are aware of our history understand that we know a thing or two thousand about televised horror. So now the question beckons – how much longer must we get jerked around before we have a channel on TV for horror fans to call their own?

From the FEARnet website:

“To all FEARnet fans who subscribe to Time Warner or Bright House Cable —

Time Warner and Bright House have dropped FEARnet from your cable line-up. They have eliminated your on-demand access to horror, thriller and suspense movies 24/7. If you want to once again see FEARnet on your cable system, your cable operator needs to hear from you. Call 1-877-FEAR-247, we’ll connect you with your cable operator and you can let them know you want FEARnet. (And be aware that for some customers, FEARnet is available on AT&T U-Verse and Verizon Fios). We hope you will be able to enjoy the premier on-demand destination for horror, thriller and suspense films, uncut and unedited. Don’t miss out. Call 1-877-FEAR-247 now.”

You know what? I don’t have either of the above providers, but I’m calling anyway, if only to fly my fuckin’ freak flag for spite! Enough is enough already! If you have a moment, please do your part. Crom will be pleased.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  1. What we all need is an HBO like cable channel that could show uncut and commercial free horror movies (and maybe sci fi). I’d pay more for such a thing. Especially if they had round-tables and/or a host to give some details and history on some of the movies.

    • I agree with rjschwarz wholeheartedly. Chiller’s programming (a channel starting out on the East Coast and moving South) seems to be really awesome, but the edits and commercials are still an issue.

      There’s enough of an audience that “Horror Box Office” would do really well and I, too, would pay for something like that, especially if there were interesting original programming like interviews with directors and horror stars or a fun Elvira-esque midnight movie show.
