“I’ll Scream! You’ll Scream! We’ll all Scream! I Scream on the Beach!“The gas mask will see you soon as you watch the Trailer for a new 80’s inspired horror I Scream on the Beach!
From Writer-directors Michael Holiday and Alexander Churchyard making an horror flick inspired by their love for the genre and films from the 1980’s. Being a kid from that decade I can easily relate with these guys!
I Scream On The Beach! we find ourselves in The 1980s, in the small seaside town of Mellow Coast. Emily is trying to discover what has happened to her father. As she searches for answers her friends start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown killer. A tribute to the home video boom period of horror movies.
Check out the Trailer…
The directors commented on their film and what inspired them – “I SCREAM ON THE BEACH! is an 80’s set horror/comedy, and takes place in a small seaside town, and like all good horror is set at Halloween.
We’ve based the look of the film on our favourite horror movies, from both our childhoods, that we rented from the video shop on VHS, and classics we’ve discovered as adults. The film uses a lot of practical effects, and even features appearances from some familiar faces to low-budget horror fans, such as Lloyd Kaufman from Troma. This was a real coup for us, and we were really excited to have his support on the film.
We love the classics, and were inspired by the Friday the 13th series, My Bloody Valentine, The Burning, Bay of Blood and Halloween, but also takes from Evil Dead, Basket Case and The Beyond.
Although we took a lot of inspiration from both American and European horror movies, it was really important to us to have it take place somewhere that we could recognise, thus the seaside town, a British institution.”
I Scream on the Beach stars Hannah Paterson, Dani Thompson, Reis Daniel and Troma Legend Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger).
The film will be having its world premiere at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival, in Southend on Sea, on Sunday January 12th, 2020 . Ironically the film was shot in entirely in Southend and lots of the cast and crew are local to the area.
