Liverpool Horror Club (LHC) and Two-Headed Snake Entertainment presented their second The Dead of Night Film Festival – this time in Liverpool – and like all LHC events there was a great club atmosphere where everyone is friendly, and you can chat to the people involved in the festival and the films.

Hereditary (2018, USA)

Hereditary (2018)

There isn’t much I haven’t already seen when it comes to horror films. I’ve been watching them ever since I was old enough to get away with it, or even before (on one occasion I got in to see The Exorcist while underage because I was accompanied by a priest!). I’ve seen all the regular horror tropes play out in scores of films, with varying degrees of success.

Although the overriding premise of Ari Aster’s first feature, Hereditary, isn’t a particularly original one, the unfolding and execution of that premise is exceptional.

“Every family tree hides a secret.”

The Dead of Night Film Festival (Saturday 21st October 2017)

The Dead of Night Film Festival

The Dead of Night Film Festival took place at The Atkinson, Southport, UK between 20th-21st October 2017. Overall this was a brilliant festival with two films – Sequence Break and The Corpse Series – which I would put in the top 10 films I’ve saw this year. I’d definitely go again next year.

“Made for horror fans by horror fans.”
