We return with our flagship festival celebrating horror in its many glorious forms.

A horrific full day event – 12 midday til 12 midnight!

DAYTIME: panels, guests, videogames, traders marketplace
EVENING: entertainment, performers, music. (18+ only)

DAYTIME: Doors open at 12midday

Our venue for the day is the InvisIble Wind Factory and its basement: Substation.

In the main IWF space, you’ll find a HORRIFIC MARKETPLACE which will be home to 25+ horror traders from Liverpool and beyond. Art, comics, crafts, pins, zines, cushions, posters, t-shirts, jewellery, and much more!
We’ll have a MINI-BOOKSHOP where you’ll be able to browse work from local authors and small press publishers. Guiding you through these literary works will be a storyteller – who will read excerpts from the books and regale you with tales of horror & unnatural happenings.
LIVERPOOL HORROR CLUB will have our own new t-shirt design available at the event. And we shall also have a limited number of 2018 Festival packs available for you guys to buy!

We’re excited to announce that SCAREWOOD will be at our fest. Scarewood is the North West’s newest interactive horror experience coming to you this Halloween. Themed with demonic forest folk, roaming zombies, monsters and creatures of the night… and don’t forget the clowns!
You’ll be able to grab a selfie with the monsters, book your tickets for their Halloween scare attraction, or possibly be recruited into the service of the Darklord’s Army?

Should you venture down into the basement, you’ll discover that we have a FULL DAY OF PANELS lined up for you guys. Our guest panelists will be actors, filmmakers and industry experts who operate in many facets of the horror genre. We’ll unveil the details of these in the coming weeks 😉

Also expect fun & games, and maybe a quiz too (there will definitely be opportunities to win prizes). People attending in costume should be prepared to be dragged onstage to show off how boss you look!

BITLORD GAMES will be filling a room with horror video games for you guys to checkout. Retro consoles, modern Xbox/Playstations, and even some spanking new VR systems! You can play just for fun, or get super competitive and take part in prize tournaments running throughout the day.

There’s a very good chance you can watch the odd movie, play some horror boardgames, or even take part in a workshop. the marketplace and panels will come to a close by 6pm

 Laurence Harvey (Human Centipede 2&3)
