It Can't Be Worse Than FearNet

NBC Universal announced that they'll launch Chiller, a new horror-centric cable channel, on March 1. According to an article in Broadcasting & Cable, the channel will repurpose old Universal properties like TALES FROM THE CRYPT and such Hitchcock films as PSYCHO, THE SHINING and THE BIRDS. Unfortunately, the inclusion of the decidedly non-horror TWIN PEAKS (a great show, but horror?) makes me wonder if they have any idea what horror fans want in such a channel. Oh well, it can't be much worse than the lineup on Comcast's FearNet which recently included such titles as LEPRECHAUN 4, CANDYMAN 2 and the almost instantly forgettable IDLE HANDS.
