BBC AMERICA HAUNTS THIS HALLOWEEN WITH NEW THRILLER "THE SECRET OF CRICKLEY HALL," A NEW SEASON OF "BEDLAM" AND A "HEX" ENCORE

The Secret of Crickley Hall premieres October 28 and Supernatural Saturday's Bedlam and Hex are set for October 6

New York - Tuesday, September 25, 2012 - BBC AMERICA brings fright and fear to primetime in October with the premiere of the bone-chilling haunted house thriller The Secret of Crickley Hall on Sunday, October 28 and two Supernatural Saturday series - the second season premiere of horror series Bedlam and an encore presentation of Hex, the acclaimed drama featuring Michael Fassbender (Prometheus), starting on Saturday, October 6.

THE SECRET OF CRICKLEY HALL

Based on the novel by best-selling British scribe James Herbert, the thriller begins a year after the disappearance of Cam, the son of Gabe Caliegh (Tom Ellis, The Fades) and Eve Caleigh (Suranne Jones, Doctor Who). As the couple and their two daughters attempt to start anew, they head to Crickley Hall - a seemingly perfect countryside house. But when cellar doors start to open on their own, phantom children's cries are heard through the night and a frenzied cane-wielding specter rears its head - the Caleigh's realize the house comes with a lot more than they bargained for. Just as they're ready to move out, Eve Caleigh hears Cam's cries and all bets are off. Three-hour event The Secret of Crickley Hall premieres Sunday, October 28, 8:00pm ET/PT.

Shifting between 1943 and present day, the Caleigh's are desperate to find the source of the crying and the connection the haunted house has to their son. Will they find him before the evil that stalks Crickley Hall finds their other children? Written and directed by Joe Ahearne (Doctor Who), this classic haunted house spine chiller is full of scares, yet underpinned by the heartbreaking story of a family needing to heal and ghosts who need to be laid to rest.

The Secret of Crickley Hall is a BBC production.

The curse continues at Bedlam Heights - the stylish apartment building with a sordid past - as the residence's restless spirits continue to wreak havoc on unsuspecting new inhabitants. This season, the place tainted by abuse, suffering and death has a new medium. Ellie (Lacey Turner, EastEnders, Being Human) is on the brink of losing her home, fianc� and career as an EMT. After months of seeing haunting visions of the dead walking among the living, she heads to Bedlam Heights to seek out a former hospital patient who was treated for similar visions. But Ellie has no idea the unimaginable horrors buried under the luxury apartments with beautiful decor and seemingly blissful tenants. Bedlam season two premieres Saturday, October 6, 9:00pm ET/PT as part of Supernatural Saturday.

After arriving at Bedlam Heights - newly renamed Brightmoor - Ellie meets resident bartender, Max (Jack Roth, Great Expectations), who reveals the patient she's seeking died six months prior - exactly the time her visions began. Max, an amateur ghost-hunting blogger, is thrilled to discover Ellie can see spirits and soon becomes the only person she can turn to for help in figuring out just what is happening to her. Meanwhile, as the owner of Bedlam Heights, Warren (Hugo Speer, The Full Monty), attempts to gloss over the complex's past troubles with sexy and self-assured new sales manager Dan (Nikesh Patel), his daughter Kate (Charlotte Salt, The Tudors) decides she can't stand by and watch any longer. She knows all too well the horrors that fester beneath the surface after discovering the building's demons first-hand. As the asylum's dark past continues to terrorize residents, they soon realize whatever is waiting for them in the depths of Bedlam Heights, is worse than anything they could have ever imagined.
