The objective of our festival is to bring new independent horror short and feature films to the genre loving public of the seaside town of Southport, England. The festival is brought to you from the creative team behind the award winning festive horror movie ‘Good Tidings’ and will be apart of this years Spookport festivities this HALLOWEEN. Making this festival truly special is our venue, the beautiful The Atkinson Theatre. So rest assured this festival is made for horror fans by horror fans.

We want audiences to have the same experience they get when watching their favourite larger budget movies, an experience in our eyes that every movie should have, screened on the big screen.
