We told you about this show and this movie recently, and now we have the air dates. We had a great time with their first original movie, Steve Niles‘ Remains, and are hoping for a similar bag o’ fun with their second, Brian Keene’s Ghoul. Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies also looks particularly worthy. Here’s the press release:

Real Fear Premieres Sunday, March 11 @ 8pm

New York, NY – January 24, 2012 – Chiller kicks off a packed year of original programming with the announcement of airdates for the first two all-new projects of 2012. The original special Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies will premiere Sunday, March 11 @ 8pm, while Chiller’s second original movie, Brian Keene’s Ghoul, will premiere Friday, April 13 @ 9pm. Ghoul’s airdate announcement comes hot on the heels of its successful screening at Slamdance headquarters in Park City, UT this past weekend.
Based on the acclaimed novel by horror maven Brian Keene, Ghoul is a coming-of-age story exploring the darkness that lurks inside small-town life. It is the summer of 1984 when a teenage couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery. Twelve-year-old Timmy (Modern Family’s Nolan Gould) and his best friends, Barry and Doug, have grown up hearing stories about a sinister ghoul that haunts the cemetery and they begin to wonder if the horrific legend might actually be real. Timmy and his friends are forced to put their friendship to the ultimate test when they dig up long-buried secrets, facing their personal demons as well as the one hiding underground. Ghoul is written by William M. Miller and directed by Gregory M. Wilson. Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino (The Woman) will serve as producers for MODERNCINÉ.
In Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies, Chiller investigates the terrifying factual stories that inspired some of the scariest horror movies of all time, including Silent Hill, The Amityville Horror, The Mothman Prophecies and Poltergeist, through exclusive eyewitness interviews and reenactments of actual events. Paranormal investigator Katrina Weidman (Paranormal State) travels with three of her friends into the dark recesses of the unknown to uncover the buried secrets behind these four iconic films. Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies is executive produced by Larry Landsman and John D’Auria for AEP Media.
