Following the recent announcement of three future releases, VIPCO have now been confirmed as official sponsors of Horror-on- Sea in 2021. This seems a fitting match for VIPCO, who in addition to announcing the release of the bloody slasher Harvest of the Dead: Halloween Night the other two releases include the British Acid Western ‘Day of the Stranger’ and 80’s throwback horror ‘I Scream on the Beach!’ which both had world premieres at Horror-on-Sea in 2020.
Horror-on-Sea Festival director Paul Cotgrove had the following to say about the VIPCO sponsoring the event – The Horror-on-Sea Film Festival are delighted to have VlPCO as a major sponsor and with them on board we really are the Home of independent Horror films here in the UK. The Horror-on-Sea 2021 has been moved to the middle of May due to the Covid 19 pandemic and we look forward to announcing our full line up of films in January.
With the ongoing restrictions of the corona pandemic Horror-on-Sea will be returning to Southend later than expected, but you can still expect a unique blood-soaked line up as they celebrate their 9th Year. Hosted again at the Park Inn Palace Hotel (Southend-on-Sea) the festival will be running over two weekends from Friday 14th May to Sunday 23rd May.
