Today the Classic Horror Campaign puts a call out to all horror film fans across the world! We are trying to persuade the BBC in the UK to bring back their iconic seasons of Friday and Saturday night T.V. horror double bills which thrilled more than one generation of monster movie fans through the seventies, the early eighties and then again in the nineties (this time hosted by Dr Terror)!
Our double challenge is to bring back classic horror double bills on free-to-air network television and to introduce these fangtastic films to a whole new generation of monster kids!
We are asking you ALL to sign our petition and spread the word amongst horror fans everywhere! Even if you don’t live in the UK we are asking all horror fans to unite and support this great cause! Once you’ve signed the petition tweet about us on Twitter using the hashtags #classichorrorcampaign and #HorrorFansUnite ! Write about us and these classic movies on your blogs! Spread the word throughout the worldwide horror community and help us celebrate the wonderful world of classic horror, sci-fi and fantasy movies!
Join our growing band of international followers and supporters including Eileen Daly, Emily Booth, Shane Briant, Caroline Munro, Shock Horror Magazine, Rue Morgue, Scream Horror Magazine, Penny Dreadful (from SFX magazine), Freaky Monsters, Diabolique, Billy Chainsaw, Bedabbled!, Exquisite Terror, Shadowland Magazine, Cinema Retro, Hemlock Books and so many more!
