FEARnet Presents the Unedited World Television Premiere of the Acclaimed "Battle Royale" on Saturday, May 18, Along with Many Other Thrilling Offerings

Don't Miss Your Last Chance to Watch Classic "Tales from the Crypt" Episodes on FEARnet, Before the Series Heads Back to the Grave Until 2014

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 22, 2013 -- FEARnet starts the summer off right, serving up a slew of premieres, stunts and marathons headlined by the World Television Premiere of BATTLE ROYALE, the way it was meant to be seen - completely unedited, in all its gory glory - on Saturday, May 18, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Never before seen on television, the international blockbuster centers around the students of class 3-B, on their way to a field trip. After being gassed, they awaken to find themselves on a remote island where they are instructed to kill each other as part of a government law to deal with out of control students. And only one can survive. Banned in several countries for its violent content, the controversial film is a favorite of Quentin Tarantino , and has been dubbed as one of Japan's most famous films.

Additionally, the Vault of Horror is closing on Friday, May 17, as TALES FROM THE CRYPT heads back to the grave until 2014. Throughout the month of May, don't miss your last chance to catch such classic TALES as "Easel Kill Ya," starring Tim Roth as a painter who makes murder his art form; "Top Billing," with Jon Lovitz as a desperate actor offing his competition to secure a role in a macabre production of Hamlet; "Split Personality," starring Joe Pesci as a swindler looking to separate a pair of twins from their inheritance; and many more.
