The London Horror Society has been dedicated to supporting grassroots horror cinema for over 7 years, and we're so proud to have well over 1,300 committed horror fans and filmmakers in our ranks.

We have launched the Indie Film Showcase to do what we love best -- bringing incredible short genre films from hugely talented filmmakers, to the wonderful UK horror community.

So join us at the historic Hen and Chickens Theatre in Highbury and Islington for an evening of fun, meeting new friends, networking, and of course -- over 2 solid hours of incredible short films.

Long live indie horror!

    A fantastic event, small but enthusiastic and welcoming.
    A great venue and a wonderful audience.

  • A great selection of films playing and there was a really warm and excited atmosphere you only seem to get at horror festivals. Lots of really crowd-pleasing films. Well run, and well worth being a part of.

    We were honoured to be awarded the very first Skully's Choice Award for our film 'Last Orders'. Massive thanks to everyone at The London Horror Society!
