We are absolutely delighted to announce that The London Horror Society is back once again with our own night of terror at the upcoming Unrestricted View Horror Film Festival 2017.
This will take place on Wednesday, 1st November at the Hen and Chickens Theatre in Highbury. The festival itself will run from the 30th October – 5th November.
Our evening will be a celebration of all things we love about the UK’s burgeoning independent horror scene, and will feature a massive bundle of our favourite short films from a collection of some of this country’s brightest film makers.
The evening will be topped off by the screening of Cannibals & Carpet Fitters. This feature film is the follow up to the short of the same name that we screened last year at this very festival — and ended up winning the ‘best short film’ award!
Take a look for yourself at what we have in store:
