The Horror Channel's initial offerings on Joost include the entire first season of the original series Shadow Falls; episodes from the original series Heartland Horrors; and music videos from the industrial rock bands "Android Lust" and "Mortiis." Additional music videos, as well as full-length feature films, will be available on Joost in the near future.
