Sky Satellite to deliver The Bad Movie Channel


Man, if only I had the ultimate satellite hook-up the deadman would be a very happy camper.  So until that day come (which will be never), the good folks over in the UK will be enjoying the hell out of the "Bad Movie Channel."

Now this is what every lover of "B-rated" movies needs, read on to read what Reuters had to say:

"Late-night TV watchers in search of hilariously terrible movies like "Plan 9 From Outer Place" can put down their remote controls as a new channel promises to gather them in one place. The Bad Movies channel is set to debut in April on the Sky satellite service with a screening of Ed Wood's 1959 science fiction flop "Plan 9", which is widely considered one of the worst movies ever made.

The channel initially will run from 9 p.m. through 9 a.m. and feature other such classics as the 1953 mystery "Death Goes to School" and the 1962 drama "Dangerous Charter."

Camp horror and other low-budget films have become something of a global cult obsession, inspiring modern remakes like Daryl Hannah's 1993 turn in "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman", TV shows like "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" and books on the subject, including "Bad Movies We Love".

"We haven't analysed it too deeply," said Ashley Faull, founder director of Sit-Up, the TV company behind the channel. "We just think there's a gap for ad-funded channels on Sky and you have to do something relatively different when competing for late-night viewers," he said on Friday.

Film and TV critic Paul Ross, the brother of comedian and broadcaster Jonathan Ross, will introduce the movies."

AHHHHHHHH! This would be an awesome channel to have you lucky bastards!
