We are horror fans dedicated to organising brilliant events in Liverpool, UK
In October 2013, we held Liverpool’s first EVER horror festival: movies, demos, entertainment spread across the weekend of halloween.
As a result of that event, our team grew and we returned with Liverpool Horror Fest in August 2015 – a one-day event with guests/ panels/ entertainment & music. Our venue for the event was the awesome Kazimier nightclub.
At the end of 2017, we began running regular events based around the many facets of the horror genre. In the 13 months which followed we hosted 21 horror events, including the screening of some amazing movies, held a horror boardgame night, hosted art exhibitions, organised two xmas markets, ran a mini-horror con, screened horror shorts, played horror bingo, we even held a Freddy vs Jason Cabaret show! We also returned with our flagship event: LIVERPOOL HORROR FESTIVAL 2018. Check out our boss flyer!
Oh, we also opened up a horror shop in Liverpool, showcasing and selling the work of 20+ artists based in Liverpool and the NorthWest.
2019 saw us streamlining our event calander with 1 event per month. Highlights were February gathering to celebrate Women In Horror Month and our beloved Splatter Cabaret show, where we drenched the audience in gore & slime. Liverpool Horror Festival was a great success as was The Dead Of Night Film Festival showcasing new and unreleased indie movies from around the world.
You can check out a full breakdown of our event history here [link]. This also showcases poster artwork by Uncle Frank Productions, who created every single piece of artwork we’re used between our inception and the end of 2019.
2020 started strong with a full year planned out. However, when C-19 arrived, the decision was made to cancel all events until we felt it was safe to resume. During the first lockdown we maintained connection to our community through weekly watchparties & chat on our Discord server. When it became clear that physical events were not returning anytime soon, we took the decision to transition The Dead Of Night Film Festival into an online event in October 2020 too.
Since then we’ve continued to host occasional online events to stave off the lockdown fatigue. Now in early 2021, it appears that an end may be in sight. Fingers crossed we can get up close and personal with you all in the 2nd half of the year!
We welcome newcomers to our local community, and have friends and associates around the world who enjoy our events and participate where possible. Please come and join usssssssssssss!
