Birmingham baker Annabel de Vetten is famous for her horror-themed cakes, whilst Victoria Price’s father Vincent was both a legend of horror cinema and a renowned gourmet. When they joined forces in May 2017 to present an event of creepy confections and macabre memories at the historic Electric Cinema, our own Steve Green dropped by […]
The Black Country Horror Shorts Film Festival has invited our own Steve Green to join horror author Adam Nevill as a judge for its inaugural event in Kinver next January. The suggestion came from Adam, whom Steve interviewed for a Birmingham tv channel back in 2017 (you can see the two parts here and here). […]
We heard today our short film Monsters has made it through to the final round of this year’s Las Vegas Global Film Fest. A total of 3285 entries have been whittled down to just 140, so we have our fingers (and toes) crossed it will make the programme. More news soon!
Steve met with Birmingham actors Jake Fitzpatrick and Valentina Tesi tonight, to discuss their participating in our short film Terror at Bell’s End. Thanks to Chiltern Railways’ inept staffing levels, the meeting was shorter than planned, but it’s always great to meet people with energy and enthusiasm for their craft.
Today is the 130th anniversary of the birth of legendary film-maker James Whale, director of such horror classics as Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and The Invisible Man — as well as mainstream hits such as Journey’s End and Show Boat. To mark the occasion, we went to his former home town, Dudley, where a large […]
More location scouting for our retro horror Terror at Bells End yesterday, including this fantastic wooded area in south Solihull which we’re hoping to use as the setting for two of the more grisly murders.
Rural villages love to show off their most attractive aspects in picture-postcards, and the community featured in our forthcoming horror short Terror at Bell’s End is no exception. (Any similarity between Bell’s End and the considerably more tranquil Tanworth-in-Arden is purely coincidental.)
We were very sorry to hear of the recent death of French actress Edith Scob, whose stature as a horror movie icon was forever assured by her appearance in the 1960 classic Eyes Without a Face. Steve met her at the 2016 Festival of Fantastic Films, for an interview broadcast on regional channel Made in […]
Caught up with our friend Sham Zaman tonight. We first worked with actor-comedian Sham on our film All Bad Things… and he plays a disturbed villager in Terror at Bell’s End. Good job he didn’t try his “psycho stare” on the bar staff at the Square Peg in Birmingham — they’d probably have thrown us […]
