“Oh! The candy-striper vampire one in Are You Afraid Of The Dark? And the clown, The Ghastly Grinner!”

“The magician one in Amazing Stories. Definitely.”

“There’s one about a pool and this horrible, fleshy skeleton came out of it and grabbed these kids. Still now, if you Google it, it’s one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever seen, I can’t believe it was ever on telly.”

“The Never-Ending Story had something called The Nothing, that was really nothing, literally and figuratively. It stuck with me and freaked me out as a kid, the idea that things were disappearing and nothing was in its place.

Hereford to Unleash Supernatural Horror Film ‘Tormented’ (Exclusive)

Hereford to Unleash Supernatural Horror Film ‘Tormented’ (Exclusive)
U.K. production company Hereford Films has added supernatural horror film “Tormented” to its slate, the first in a series of America-set genre movies from the company.

Written and directed by Adam Stephen Kelly (“Done In,” “Kill Kane”), “Tormented” centers “on teenager Ashley Loren, who — in the aftermath of a tragic car accident — is haunted by nightmares of her dead sister, and must uncover her town’s dark past in the hope of vanquishing the malevolent spirit that terrorizes her from beyond the grave,” according to a statement.

Hereford Films CEO Jonathan Sothcott commented: “The glut of horror films released weekly to home entertainment platforms makes standing out from the crowd a particular challenge, and over-saturation of inferior product is going to be an increasing problem but our model for these genre films at Hereford mixes the best elements of Hammer and Blumhouse: unashamedly populist, high-concept and modestly budgeted horror

Wolfblood series 4: new setting, same brilliant show




Wolfblood series 4 has changed everything and nothing. Underneath what's new, it's the same ace show with the same positive message…

Wolfblood series 4 hits the ground running... literally. First episode Captivity introduces its new urban setting and action-spy genre with a slickly directed nocturnal street chase that’s more Alias than Eolas. No longer a stranger to technology, formerly wild Wolfblood Jana has a headset and a mission. She’s the best agent in the business, and her prey doesn’t stand a chance.

In a fun twist, said prey turns out not to be a villain but Tj, the errant teenage son of Jana’s boss at swish multinational Segolia. He’s soon sniffed out and found mucking about in Katrina’s newly opened Kafe (a franchise don’t-you-know).

On their way home to mum, Jana and Tj cross paths with a couple of young Wolfbloods in

Watch Award Winning Short Beneath Water

Having completed a very lengthy festival run, Charlie Manton's award winning short film Beneath Water is now available for viewing online and is very much worth your time. Starring Call The Widwife and Wolfblood's Louisa Connolly-Burnham, this is one of those cases where you feel almost obligated to bring up the director's age as part of the story - Manton was only 19 when he made it - while also being somewhat reluctant to do so because, well, a good film's a good film and this is a good film no matter the age of its creator.On the first year anniversary of a traumatic life changing event, 16 year old Daisy attempts to get through to her increasingly withdrawn mother.

All 27 stars of Skins: Whatever happened to E4's teen tearaways?

Here's one of those 'This'll make you feel old' factoids - it's two years since the last ever episode of Skins aired.

E4's groundbreaking hormone-fest wrapped up on August 5, 2013 - with an older Cook (Jack O'Connell) heading off into an uncertain future at the close of 'Rise (Part Two)'.

Cook was but one of 27 major characters featured on Skins across three 'Generations' - in a total of 61 episodes, split into seven series. But where are the teen tearaways of Roundview College now?

Generation One

1. Nicholas Hoult

Hoult played Tony Stonem - the pre-eminent bad boy of Skins - across its first two series. Later badly hurt in a traffic accident and forced to rely on others, Tony had mellowed by his final episodes.

Now aged 25, Hoult has become a bona-fide Hollywood star with roles in this year's Mad Max: Fury Road and the much-anticipated book adaptations Dark Places and Kill Your Friends.
