Time to get the garlic out as Horror Channel presents VAMPIRE WEEK, a bitefest of vampire movies from 13 19 of March, led by the channel premiere of 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, David Slades savage riff on the vampire myth, starring Josh Hartnet and Melissa George.
There are also classics and cult favourites to sink your teeth in to, including Matt Reeves critically-acclaimed vampire fantasy LET ME IN, and Tom Hollands voracious teen vampire hit FRIGHT NIGHT, JOHN CARPENTERS VAMPIRES, a horror Western starring James Woods, as a vengeful, stake-wielding bloodsucker hunter, and Francis Ford Cappolas powerful BRAM STOKERS DRACULA, starring Gary Oldman as the immortal Count. Also, Paul Bettany is in fine vampire-killing form in PRIEST, and a vampire-diseased Milla Jovovich fights for her life in martial-arts futurist thriller ULTRAVIOLE.
Plus, the Brits sharpen their stakes with Tom Patons nerve-shredding REDWOOD, a fresh spin on the creature-in-the-woods mythology, and EAT LOCALS in which actor Jason Flemying makes his directorial debut with a bloodsucking comedy chiller featuring Mackenzie Crook, Dexter Fletcher and Annette Crosbie.
Full film details in transmission order:

As more people are infected, the government sets out to destroy them, but one woman stands in the way: ultra-beautiful, ultra-lethal Violet (Milla Jovovich). With eye-popping martial arts skills and chameleon-like abilities, Violet becomes a rogue warrior bent on protecting her new race and seeking revenge on those who created it.
Saturday 13 March @ 22:45 30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007) *Channel PremiereA remote, isolated town in Alaska is plunged into a state of complete darkness for 30 days every winter.

Starring Nicholas Brendon, Tatjana Nardone, Mike Beckingham, Muzz Khan, Jessica Jane Stafford.
Monday 15 March @ 21:00 FRIGHT NIGHT (1985)Everything is normal about Charley except for one thing: he's pretty sure a vampire has moved into the house next door. But Charley is having a hard time getting anyone to believe him. Even Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), the former horror-film star to whom Charley turns for help, sees his assignment as a way to make easy money. Only his suave and sinister neighbour, Jerry Dandrige (Chris Sarandon), takes Charley seriously. And Jerry's out to make sure Charley stops telling stories. Permanently.
Tuesday 16 March @ 21:00 JOHN CARPENTERS VAMPIRES (1998)James Woods is Jack Crow, leader of a team of vampire hunters hired by the Vatican. After wiping out a vampire nest in rural New Mexico, "Team Crow" is savagely ambushed by the unholy Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith), a vicious 600-year-old vampire.

Others will be joining them too, including a detachment of Special Forces vampire killers who have bitten off more than they can chew. This is certainly going to be a night to remember... and for some of them it will be their last. With Anette Crosbie, Freema Agyeman, Charlie Cox, Mackenzie Crook, Eve Myles, and Vincent Regan
Friday 19 March @ 21:00 BRAM STOKERS DRACULA (1992)Count Dracula (Gary Oldman) is condemned to live off the blood of the living for eternity. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) is sent to Dracula's castle to finalise a land deal, but when the Count sees a photo of Harker's fiance, Mina (Wynona Ryder), the spitting image of his dead wife, he imprisons him and sets off for London to track her down.
