Night Sky (Dir.Jacob Gentry)
AJ Bowen in Nightsky (2022)
Big fans of indie horror star AJ Bowen (You’re Next, The Signal). This film takes Roger Croman tropes, mixed with Starman and 1970’s road movies to create Indie science fiction fantasy as a man and woman attempt to escape a ruthless killer.

Something In The Dirt (Dir. Aaron Moorhead, Justin Benson)
From Something In The Dirt
Dreamweavers, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, conjuring a very personal film. Mixing up DIY science fiction, character drama That’s dark comedic , full of pre-apocalyptic vibes and overwhelming paranoia. As ever they direct and star as neighbour who witness a paranormal event in Los Angeles which sees them slide into a cathartic rabbit hole of hell (The filmmakers recently stepped into mainstream tv and film with Disney+ Moon Knight starring Oscar Issac).

Midnight Peepshow (Dir.Jake West, Airell Anthony Hayles, Andy Edwards, Ludovica Musumeci)
From Midnight Peepshow
a Soho Peep Show with a difference – the sights on offer are tailor made to its customers’ deepest sinful fears. A twisted portmanteau horror threesome exploring the nightmare side of psychosexual fantasy. With three individuals pay  the ultimate price for dabbling in the dark side of desire.

Lola (Dir.Andrew Legge)

Making it’s UK premiere at Edinburgh a couple of weeks before. A 1940’s set sci-fi thriller with sisters who create a machine that can intercept broadcasts from the future. This delightful apparatus allows them to explore their inner punk a generation before the movement comes into existence.

Mastemah (Dir.Didier D. Daarwin )
From Mastemah
A stylish and erudite chiller that smartly oscillates between schizophrenia, possession and pure psychological horror. A young psychiatrist who moves into countryside in hope the traumatic events she faced won’t follow her. However when a dark and mysterious man, she starts to examine her life slides into a downward spiral , is he the devil?

Terrifier 2 (Dir.Damien Leone)
From Terrifier 2
We weren’t the biggest fans of Terrifier but we appreciated gory misadventures of Art the Clown. The festival hosted the world premiere of the first film in 2018 and once again the much anticipated sequel. What made Art possibly one of the scariest clowns in film is the fact he does not speak not forgetting unhinged, merciless unrelenting blood and guts as Art returns to Miles County targeting a bereaved family and teen girl and her brother at Halloween!

Barbarian (Dir. Zach Cregger)
From Barbarian (2022)
We love those horrors we know very little about and creep up on us, like this one starring Bill Skarsgard (IT aka Pennywise The Clown) and Georgina Campbell. Campbell plays a young woman who heads to a rainy Detroit to rental home before a job interview. Only to find that a mysterious man (Skarsgard) already there. He offers for her to stay there which she accepts only to find that not all what it seems at this rental.

Pussycake (Dir. Pablo Parés )
From Pussycake (2022)
Described as a ‘new dimension of horror’, A struggling all girl rock band in need to resurrect their careers. Things don’t start well forgotten about their old fanbase, discovered by things beyond reality! An ode to 1980’s horrors, monsters, inter-dimensional journeys, kickass music and gore galore.
