14 Nov Southend’s very own Horror-on-Sea Film Festival to return with a bang
The seventh edition of Southend’s very own Horror-on-Sea Film Festival returns in January 2019 and promises to be the biggest and, arguably, best yet.
Since its inception in 2012, Horror-On-Sea has grown to become the UK’s largest independent festival devoted to the genre and for the first time, will now be spread across two weekends – starting Friday 11 January and running through Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 and then again from Friday 18 to Sunday 20 January 2019.
“We’re all grown up now,” says Horror-on-Sea’s Director and creator, Paul Cotgrove. “We’ve had to spread the festival across two weekends, as we have had so many submissions from up-and-coming film makers and there are just so many good quality, independent films to show. In fact, across the six days of the festival, we’ll be screening from 10am to midnight.”
From vampires to hookers with hacksaws, murderous hillbillies selling strange ‘beef’ to hellacious cats named ‘Angel’, Horror-on-Sea promises full-length features and shorts from across the whole horror spectrum – including killer donuts.
