This week brought the rather sad news that British screen legend Sir Christopher Lee had passed away aged 93, and now the Horror Channel has announced that it is set to pay tribute to the iconic actor by clearing its post-9pm schedule on Thursday July 2nd for a special Christopher Lee night.
9pm – THE DEVIL RIDES OUT (1968)
10.55pm – DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS (1966)
12.45am – SCARS OF DRACULA (1970)
2.35am – TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER (1976)
“We feel the movies chosen for the night represent some of his most iconic characters and performances during his time with Hammer Films and in the horror genre,” said Stewart Bridle, manager of the Horror Channel. “Watching these you realise why he was so highly respected as a fantastic character actor who could both be a stoic hero and also a terrifying villain. He will be greatly missed but he lives on through his amazing legacy of movies”.
