FEARnet announces July programming

Want a slice of what’s in store on FEARnet for July? World premieres, marathons and even a contest
splatter their schedule as the temps heat up.

The month is headlined on Saturday, July 20 by the world premiere of the Israeli thriller, Blood Clan (a.k.a. Rabies) at 10 p.m. ET. The celebrated film, which is part of the network’s “Tour De La Terror,” “weaves a twisted web around a group of young tennis players, a ranger and his dog, and a troop of policemen, whose lives become entangled with a brother and sister, after the girl falls in to a psychopath’s trap.”

Following Blood Clan at midnight is the French shocker Frontiere(s) in which a family of cannibalistic Nazis terrorize a gang of thieves. Can you handle even more terror? Then check out the J-Horror classic about the mystery of a cursed video tape that inspired The Ring, Ringu airs at 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 21.

So we’ve been to Israel, France, Japan ... how about a quick jaunt to Uruguay where a young girl is seeing and hearing some crazy things during the repair of daddy’s cottage?
