A partire dal 6 settembre arriva finalmente anche in Italia Horror Channel. Ad ospitare il nuovo canale sarà la piattaforma Sky(sul canale 134): la programmazione di Horror Channel, che sarà 24 ore su 24, dedicherà spazio ai classici e alle produzioni indipendenti, dirette e speciali sui festival internazionali dedicati al genere, interviste ai grandi maestri e agli esordienti e molto altro ancora.

Adam Robinson, direttore della versione inglese, ha dichiarato: “Siamo felici che Horror Channel arrivi in Italia, patria di numerosi talenti della grande tradizione horror come Dario Argento e Lamberto Bava e di quelli più giovani come Michele Soavi e Federico Zampaglione. La forza del canale è coinvolgere coloro che fanno film e coloro che li amano.”
