The Grudge
• Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jason Behr star in a remake of a classic Japanese chiller, directed by Takashi Shimizu. “In Japanese culture, stories of Horror come from psychologically scaring people rather than chopping people to pieces. I wanted to make a psychologically terrifying story rather than to use explicit gore and blood to shock the audience.”

HeSeed of Chucky
• We travelled across vast and strange lands to the country well known to Horror fans, Romania, and there we met star Jennifer Tilly on-set in for the fifth Chucky film.

“I’m playing an exaggeration of a myself… Leopard prints and fur coats and stillettos and cleavage everywhere. The film has a cartoon sensibility. It gives you the chance to be as rude as you like to anybody!”

• First-time director Chris Smith leads us down winding stairs to reveal what's underneath the bustling streets in his new shocker set after-hours in the London Tube!

“The movies that scare me the most are about the madness of man, his unhinged mental state. The fact that the killer could be a man is brutal and unsettling.”

Creating the face of BarnabasDark Shadows
• Make-up artists Todd McIntosh and Andrew Clement take us behind the scenes on the remake of the Gothic Soap Opera, with never-before-seen photos and design sketches

Bubba Ho-Tep
• Bruce Campbell and director Don Coscarelli on their new comedy Horror in which a retired Elvis (Campbell) battles a vengeful Egyptian mummy! “I thought the story was fun. The film treats Elvis well – he ends the movie as a hero.”

Nineteen Eighty-Four
• A look back at the groundbreaking BBC production from 1954, directed by Rudolph Cartier and starring Peter Cushing and André Morell, which has been spectacularly restored for DVD

Exorcist: The Begining
• The story behind The Exorcist: The Beginning, the prequel to William Friedkin’s 1973 movie, is almost as complex as the film you will see on the screen. And then there’s the film you won’t see in cinemas…

Frank Darabont
• The acclaimed director of The Shawshank Redemption reveals his plans to film Stephen King's The Mist: “I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to do a great Horror piece and I have it now with The Mist.”

Ginger Snaps
• The Fitzgerald sisters are back in a prequel and a sequel to the genre-busting Ginger Snaps. Says producer Steve Hoban, “We were all adamant about having bigger and badder werewolves, because you didn’t see much of the werewolf in the first film.”
