Horror-On-Sea Film Festival Beware people of Essex: This coming January, 2017, werewolves, killer clowns, and zombies will be prowling through your city streets, terrorizing everyone they meet with their gruesome ways and obnoxious attitudes. So no change there then, Ha! Only joking. Seriously though, folks, if you love watching a good horror film and fancy a mega fright, why don't you come on down to the prestigious Horror-On-Sea Film Festival, 2017, which is running across the last two consecutive weekends in January.

Over these two weekends the festival will be screening over 80 feature films and cinematic shorts, showcasing genres such as zombie, slasher, and topically, killer clowns. Now when it comes down to deciding on which movie to see, quite often the choice is determined by the pithy one-line plot summaries that tantalize the prospective viewer. For instance, who can miss out on, “When Marylou is killed by a boob-eating shark, besotted Victoria Frankenstein creates a new best friend” (Beach Blanket Frankenstein)? Or for that matter, how about, 'You won’t believe your eyes! A terrifying giant bird causes worldwide panic' (The Giant Claw)?

Horror-On-Sea Film Festival
In an interview he recently gave to the press, Paul Cotgrove, the brrrrraaaaaiiiiinnnns behind Horror-on-Sea, said, “Once again we’ve curated a fabulous programme of new movies for hardcore horror fans. We have two world premieres, one for ‘Good Tidings’, in which a homeless war veteran is targeted by three vicious psychopaths wearing Santa suits on Christmas Day, where as the other is ‘Slasher House 2’. Both the director and producer of the latter film are getting married the week before the festival and then spending their honeymoon in Southend, at Horror-on-Sea”.

He then added, “The increasing international reputation of the festival means that we've had films entered from twelve different countries, including Iran, Romania, and Finland, and as you'd expect, even though the United Kingdom and America have provided the main bulk of the films, Spain is also becoming a major producer of great horror flicks” .

Horror-On-Sea Film Festival
Unlike the final fate of many of the characters seen in these films, tickets for Horror-on-Sea won’t cost moviegoers an arm and a leg. Ouch! Pun alert! Prices start at £5 for one film, £15 for a Day Pass, and £50 for a Weekend Pass -- which means you get to see everything over the two weekends. Tickets are available at eventbrite.com, or by contacting Horror-On-Sea via their website, facebook, or twitter pages.

Like last year's festival the Park Inn Palace on Southend seafront provides the venue for all the movies. And do you know what? It's a great place to make the most of the festival’s seaside location! In fact, you could say, it's a great place for a weekend to dismember -- don't groan, as it sounded good in my head.
