The Slaughtered Bird is the brainchild of cousins Chris Barnes and Stephen Harper, and was founded in late 2013. There were thousands of other film and horror websites across the UK, but nothing connected to the city in which they reside – Liverpool.
After a lot of research, late nights and advice from industry insiders, The Slaughtered Bird was born. Starting out briefly as a blog, it quickly became a fully-fledged website.
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 – which will be released later in the year. For more details, give the project a follow on Twitter: @BurnShortFilm!
The Slaughtered Bird is going from strength to strength and has not only become the biggest indie-horror website in Liverpool, UK, but also one of the biggest in the country.
