Cathedrals will fall, the river will run red... and THE BIRD will be SLAUGHTERED!

About Us

The Slaughtered Bird was founded in late 2013 and is owned/edited by Chris Barnes.

With a wealth of knowledge on horror, comic books and film in general, the site has come a long way in such a short time – forever learning the complex ropes and expanding at a rapid speed!

In the past few years, The Slaughtered Bird has sponsored and attended some of the UK’s biggest and best conventions and festivals, interviewed and hung out with some of the biggest names in the genre, and established itself as one of the leading independent websites in the UK.

In 2016, we produced our first film – short psychological horror BURN, written by Chris. For more details, give the project a follow on Twitter: @BurnShortFilm!

The Slaughtered Bird is going from strength to strength and is now recognised as a leading promoter of independent cinema across the world.

  • Really awesome thing you have here. I love movies, horror in particular. We follow each other on Twitter so you can take a look at my horror themed paintings. I would love to do something with your kick ass site.

  • Sick site. The attitude and kick ass film reviews make it original and raw. And as for the artwork, some of the best shit I’ve seen to date.

  • My name is Vishal Rajput. I’m an inde filmmaker and I have recently started my own production company that is dedicated to making Live Anime style feature films, ranging from all genres. I’m in Post-Production of my first feature, The Berzerk Death Dealer, which is a Gothic/horror/action film. I wanted to know if you guys can help me promote my trailer and company by featuring an article upon it?

    All my info can be found on this link, which is my facebook production company page.

  • A great site , enjoyed reading the interviews. Well done !

  • Hey! Great site, this is what’s needed to give independent film makers a place to discuss ideas and perhaps collaborate with others. Maybe even organise a meet up in a pub in the Liverpool area, this is where ideas can take form and people can meet other like minded (deranged or otherwise 😉 film lovers and makers. Great stuff, keep up the good work! Beep Beep!

  • The Slaughtered Bird is my go to horror website. When I’m looking for news, great reviews, Folklore, The Blue Took and The Viking Lord has it all!

    Tom Slick says Thumbs up!

  • Hi guys
    It was a pleasure meeting you at the convention in Liverpool last weekend. You’ve got a really cool site here guys and I’d love to help support you in any way I can so please feel free to get in touch and we’ll see what kind of work we can do together.

    All the best.

  • Hey mates it’s been quite a bit since we last spoke. Wanted to let you know I’m still alive and kicking. The site looks awesome! Y’all have really grown in the last two years. Congrats! I’m finally getting serious with my art, retired my flooring business and am chasing the dream. If you get the chance take a look at what I’ve been up to.


  • Hi guys, me and the Enigmatic Productions team have a horror comedy campaign live on Indiegogo at the moment. A film about a killer garden gnome so could be something that’ll interest you guys 😉 should be pretty fun to make too if we can raise the funds. If you could help us out at all that would be great, here’s the link:

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...
