This Halloween, World Movies summons the underworld to your TV with Video Nasties. Starting October 28, we’ve resurrected the morally corrupt 80’s horror films that have gone largely unseen. That is, until now.

So sit back, relax and enjoy our freakish mix of Count Draculas, crazy scientists, serial killers, psychco-sisters and hermit murderers, as they terrorise your screens.
