From writer-directors Michael Holiday and Alexander Churchyard (The Ratman of Southend) comes a new '80s-inspired slasher flick I Scream on the Beach!, a tribute to the home video boom period of horror movies.
In the film set in the small seaside town of Mellow Coast on Halloween; Emily is trying to discover what has happened to her father. As she searches for answers her friends start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown killer.
Hailing from TIS Productions Ltd, I Scream on the Beach! stars Hannah Paterson, Dani Thompson (My Bloody Banjo), Reis Daniel (There’s No Such Thing as Zombies) and the legendary Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger).
"We’ve based the look of the film on our favourite horror movies, from both our childhoods, that we rented from the video shop on VHS, and classics we’ve discovered as adults," said Holiday and Churchyard. "The film uses a lot of practical effects, and even features appearances from some familiar faces to low-budget horror fans, such as Lloyd Kaufman from Troma. This was a real coup for us, and we were really excited to have his support on the film."
They add, "We love the classics, and were inspired by the Friday the 13th series, My Bloody Valentine, The Burning, Bay of Blood and Halloween, but also takes from Evil Dead, Basket Case and The Beyond."
The film will be having its world premiere at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival, in Southend on Sea, on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 at 8 pm.
