"We are here to aid and extend the already strong horror community and horror film-making community too. This festival is for creatives, horror fans and other storytellers to harness the darkness and send in their creepiest, gut churning and terrifying short films" - Alex & Nadia

Founder/Director

ALEXANDER BLACKBURN

"I have been a massive horror fan for many years now. Thanks to my eldest brother Michael, I was terrified at an early age because he would show me horror films like Childs Play, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I was only 5 or 6! Favourite horror film has to be JAWS."

Community Content Producer

MICHAEL CHAN

"I was raised on Chinese horror films and fell in love with North American horror after watching the 2004 remake of 'Dawn of the Dead'. These days, I'm an avid fan of all things zombies and Lovecraft. You can also find me as an NPC in the video game 'Slasher VR' and as a character in the board game 'Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs'."

Communications Adviser/Prop Maker

Matthew Atherton

"I was inducted into the world of horror like most people, at a rather young age by that one older cooler friend who thought it would be funny to terrify an unsuspecting child, little did they know I would enjoy it! I love how horror has many facets and can appeal to different tastes, you can go from laughing at charming low budget practical effects to screaming and clutching the nearest pillow. The first film that really got under my skin and thoroughly creeped my younger self out was The Silence of The Lambs and to this day it remains my favourite."

Original Music Composer/Producer

Chris Forsey

"I love horror - my favourite film is the original Suspiria, and the soundtrack by Goblin has been so influential to me when writing for the genre.  I’m also hugely inspired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, who used innovative recording techniques to create unique, unnerving sounds for television in the 60s and 70s."
