There’s a new horror film festival afloat, and this one sounds pretty damn killer. Not to gloat too much, but the UK is a breading ground for horror films, yes we have had a fair few stinkers, but the majority of the time we produce gritty and in your face horror flicks.
So with that, it makes perfect sense that another horror film festival has surfaced and they’re currently seeking feature length horror DVD’s and faux trailers for their upcoming festival, Horror-on-Sea from Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England in January 2013.
The festival is currently open to submissions from all around the world, so if you would like your film or faux trailer to be seen on the big screen in front of a crowd of horror hungry fans, hit up their email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not only will the festival be showing films but they will also be undertaking their first ever zombie walk which will have you staggering along the pier, the perfect setting for an eerie night of zombie mayhem.
Submissions for films and faux trailers are currently open until September 30th, so get those films in and who knows, we may just see your film on the big screen.
Currently the festival will be showcasing Pat Higgins’ Amicus tribute “Nazi Zombie Death Tales”; “INBRED”, from Alex (“Cradle of Fear”/”Pervirella”) Chandon; prolific genre veteran Michael J. Murphy’s “ZK3” and “Bloody Cuts”, Ben Franklin’s anthology, inspired by classic series’ such as “The Twilight Zone”.
We have also just learned that the urban horror film Community (see the trailer below), will be screened at the festival and many more are still to be announced.
