On Halloween, something called FearNet is set to make its debut, offering scary movies and other horror programming on demand.

Starting with niche programming sounds like a great idea but is there enough of an audience to justify the new infrastructure?
Are they really that afraid that putting popular content will cannabilize their current viewership?
