The latest set of films to be screened at the STARBURST International Film Festival have been announced. Taking place on Friday March 13th and Saturday March 14th, the festival will screen 15 independent features (with some retro classics still to be announced) and no fewer than 30 shorts.
Newly announced are:
An English Haunting - we’re delighted to be hosting the world premiere of Charlie Steed’s new film. This is a gloriously creepy Gothic horror tale.
I Scream on the Beach! - a fun, retro-looking shocker that features a cameo from last year’s festival guest Lloyd Kaufman and stars genre star Dani Thompson. Written and directed by Alex Churchyard and Michael Holiday, it’ll delight fans of old VHS horror flicks.
Nefarious - directed and co-written by Richard Rowntree, this is a Tarrantino-esque horror thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The film is due for US release soon, so this is a great chance to see it before the buzz starts.
The Good Neighbour - Jonathan Reid-Edwards' enigmatic sci-fi tinged emotional drama will enthral everyone.
Those Who Deserve To Die - Bret Wood’s gripping neo-giallo based on Thomas de Quincey’s Confessions of an Opium Eater.
Surprise - a creepy anthology that takes place at a writers’ group meeting. Written and directed by David Green and Dan McGee, it’s one for Amicus fans.
These films join the already packed schedule that includes the world premieres of A Little More Flesh, Chestersberg and the English Premiere of Sea Fever. Many of the filmmakers and actors will be attending, alongside our guests Laurence R. Harvey and Graham Humphreys.
Watch this space as we’ll be announcing the retro strand feature films and news about the STARBURST Fantasy Awards soon.
