HOT SPOT: UK's Horror Channel Kicks Off Slasher Season

by Brief Staff  |  04.14.2017

In this campaign for AMC’s UK channel, Horror, the viewer is put in the position of hunter, chasing down potential victims.

Instead of highlighting the blood and gore, the spot takes a page from Alfred Hitchcock’s playbook and instead focuses on the suspense. 

Horror launched its Slasher season on April 7, airing See No Evil 2, Girlhouse, Prom Night and Sorority Row. Actress Jessie Jane Knowles stars in the spot, reflecting that all of the movies’ central character is an American high-schooler and usually a young woman.
