    We had a really fabulous time at Dead All Day this year - one of the most fun festivals we've been lucky enough to attend! Communication was excellent right from the start - they gave good notice of inclusion which meant we were able to pre-book hotels etc to save money which is always appreciated. Great screening venue and the hospitality was brilliant, as was the networking. A very valuable event for horror filmmakers and the community in general - the icing on the cake was winning one of the amazing Quacky Slasher statuettes! Thanks for selecting "Nefarious"!
