There will be Horror Channel Hell this August and a treat for science fiction fans
According to the Horror Channel, August promises to be a wicked month for fans of horror and science fiction as well. If you want all the gory (and we mean gory) details, check out their blog. If you’re in a rush, we spotlight some highlights.

All were presumed dead or reported missing over several decades, and many return to their former lives on Earth – but with startling powers.
