The Halloween Horror Festival is a screening event of short films based upon the following horror themes:
- Theme of Environmental Horror.
By "Environmental Horror" we mean any short, horror movie (up to 15 minutes in length) that features environmental issues.
- The Zombie Horror
I don’t think this genre type needs any explanation. The apocalypse has struck and the world is in chaos. ..
- The Suspense/Thriller Horror
This type of horror film may or may not have a ghost or another worldy being. Maybe, it’s all happening inside your head.
The One that Spooks!
Probably one of the most popular kind of horror, the spooky ones will generally involve a family moving to a suburban location, a haunted house.
The Spiritual Horror
It’s the age-old idea of good vs evil that gives birth to this type of horror in our list of different types of horror movies. You have forces of evil vs the forces of good engaged in a battle which either involves possession of a human being or a thing.
(up to 15 minutes in length)
The screening will take place at the Whirled Cinema in Brixton, London UK.
Please refer to the "rules" section of our website for further details.
