For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Full line up for the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival 2022 announced

Following a hiatus in 2021 due to the pandemic, Horror-on-Sea will be making a welcome return to Southend in 2022 with what promises to be its biggest yet. Horror-on-Sea is recognised by many as the true home of independent horror and remains one of the UK’s biggest independent film festivals.

Horror-on-Sea was originally formed to promote independent horror films and will continue to uphold that tradition, giving the horror fans an opportunity to see independent titles which would not normally be played on the big screen.

Hosted once again at The Park Inn Palace Hotel (Southend-on-Sea) the festival will be running over two weekends from Friday 14th January to Sunday 16th January and Friday 21st January to Sunday 23rd January.

Festival organiser Paul Cotgrove had the following to say about the festival returning: We are delighted to finally be back in action next January after the disappointment of having to cancel the festival in January 2021 due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Horror fans can expect to see a very strong line up of Independently made Horror films from the UK and the rest of the world, many of which will be introduced by the filmmakers and actors themselves.

You can find the full festival listing for both weekends below.

Tickets and exclusive Horror-on-Sea merchandise is now available on the website and can be collected at the festival:
