silence of the lambs

Halloween is three weeks away, and Sky is getting into the spirit of things. Not only is it launching a dedicated Halloween Sky Cinema channel, it's also airing some comedy horror shorts from female directors.

Sky Cinema Halloween will be available from 23rd-31st October, and will feature some of the scariest films of all time. These include the original 'Halloween' – which comes to Sky Cinema for the first time – 'Rosemary's Baby' and 'Silence of the Lambs'.

Other classics include John Carpenter's 'The Thing', 'Carrie' and 'Pet Sematary', as well as the more recent 'Ouija: Origin of Evil' and 'The Girl With All The Gifts'.

It will be available on Sky channel 303.

This year's comedy horror shorts will be directed by an all-female line-up. The "spine-chilling yet hilarious" shows include ghastly ghost tours, a sinister wedding and mysterious strangers harbouring scary secrets. They comprise 'A Deal' directed by Nida Manzoor, 'It Should Have Been Me' directed by Emily Greenwood and 'Twin Thing' directed by Kate Herron.

The collection is curated by the award-winning Merman team of Sharon Horgan and Clelia Mountford ('Catastrophe', 'Bliss').

The shorts will be available on Sky on-demand from 23rd October, and will air on Sky Arts from 31st October.
