“ Sky Movies. „
SKY MOVIES SCI-FI & HORROR is a movie channel available as part of the 'Movies Mix' on the Sky Digital satellite television platform in the UK. The channel is not available as a standalone, and the cost of the 'Movies Mix' is dependent on the other channels the viewer subscribes to. Personally I pay £34 per month for both the 'Variety Mix' and the 'Movies Mix' whereas the 'Variety Mix' alone would cost me £16 per month. I am therefore paying £18 each month the privilege of receiving all of the Sky Movies channels.
I really like science fiction and horror movies and so this is a channel that I particularly like to view. Some of the treats coming up in the near future include:
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING
This is a prequel to the relatively recent remake of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. I have seen that remake and although it was not a patch on the original I did enjoy it so I am looking forward to seeing the prequel. The film stars Jordana Brewster and Taylor Handley and was directed by Jonathan Liebesman.
STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE
As those of you who read my reviews will know, I already have this, the first Star Trek movie, on DVD. I do love it though so I am sure that I will catch it again when it comes around on this channel. The film was directed by Robert Wise and features all of the regular crew of the starship Enterprise.
A disaster movie about an asteroid heading for the Earth. I haven't seen this one before (or I don't remember it at least) so am looking forward to seeing it. The film stars Morgan Freeman as the President of the USA, and was directed by Mimi Leder. Also appearing is Robert Duvall, one of my favourite actors of all time.
If you like science fiction and horror movies then this is definitely a channel you should subscribe to.
