Triple Six Horror Fest announces its 2017 award winners!

Triple Six Horror Film Festival, co-created by me (Chris Barnes) and UK Horror Scene’s Andy Deen, debuted last month (May 27th and 28th) at the AMC Cinema, Manchester, UK.

The full lineup – which can be found here – of 9 features and 13 shorts (with Burn added at the last minute) was a diverse selection and included UK, European and World Premieres, as well as a brilliant 35mm screening of Hardware – with director Richard Stanley in attendance for the entire weekend!

It was a great turnout by fans and filmmakers alike, and we’re delighted to finally announce the festival award winners – voted for by a panel of judges, with 2 special Audience Awards voted for by the lovely horror public who attended.

Here goes:

Audience Award Best Short Film – The Cleansing Hour

Audience Award Best Feature Film – The Forest of Lost Souls

Judges’ Award Best Short Film – Pigskin

Judges’ Award Best Feature Film – Tone Death

Judges’ Award Best Director – José Pedro Lopes for The Forest of Lost Souls

Both myself and Andy would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the filmmakers who submitted films, Colin Ellis and the rest of AMC Cinema’s staff, and, of course, all you wonderful horror folk who paid to support a brand new festival. We’d love to make Triple Six a huge celebration of our favourite genre for years to come… hopefully we’ll see you all there 😉

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
