Horror Channel's Classic Sci-fi Weekend 2

We here at Uphill Both Ways love good classic science fiction movies, and our U.K. listeners and readers are in for a good dose of them next month, thanks to Horror Channel’s Classic Sci-Fi Weekend 2! From oversized insects to things that come from beneath the sea and from outer space, this line-up is fantastic! Following is the official press information.

It’s back to terrify once more! Horror Channel once again celebrates the Sci-fi B-movie world of strange creatures, alien invaders and weird science with CLASSIC SCI-FI WEEKEND 2, a follow-up TV special to the popular Classic Sci-fi weekend broadcast in April 2020. The fifties are acknowledged as the Golden Age for Sci-fi movies and Horror Channel has picked ten of the most iconic, which will be broadcast on Saturday16th April and Sunday 17th April.
 
The season includes five channel premieres: the heart-pounding Alien invasion classic IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, pulp-horror favourite TARANTULA, featuring an uncredited Clint Eastwood, subterranean monster thriller THE MOLE PEOPLE, the beastly mutant classic THE DEADLY MANTIS and THE MONOLITH MONSTERS, in which the world is attacked by thirsty giant crystals!
 
The season also embraces returning favourites such as mutant octopus-rampaging IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, Fred F. Sears’ saucer-invading caper EARTH VS THE FLYING SAUCERS, Sears’ rampaging alien bird yarn THE GIANT CLAW, Nathan Juran’s Ray Harryhausen inspired 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH and drive-in favourite THE BLOB, starring Steve McQueen.

It's Aliiive!

IT'S ALIVE!

After over a month of... nothing, we're back. Sort of.
Mike is almost back to what passes for normal when it comes to him and he and Joseph are working on some behind-the-scenes changes for the return of the titular Uphill Both Ways podcast.  Our fifth anniversary is coming up pretty soon, so we think it would be a safe bet to expect something right around then.
Until that time...
