HORROR film fans will be treated to thrills, chills and plenty of gore at this year’s Sheffield Horror Film Festival.

Celluloid Screams has announced its highly anticipated programme of events as it returns for its fourth annual festival next month. 
The festival will cram in almost 30 horror films across three days, including sci-fi and teen horrors, to ensure guests get the ultimate viewing experience.

A secret film, hand-picked by the director is also on the programme, but the title will only be revealed at the last minute.

Festival director, Robert Nevitt said: “Myself and some volunteers have spent endless hours watching films.

“We always look for something that brings a new perspective to horror films.

“Year on year we try and develop to bring a diverse range of films. We like to think they are a breath of fresh air compared to traditional horror films.”

The festival, held at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, gives movie lovers a chance to watch a mixture of short, feature and 3D films before some of them have hit the cinema.

Opening the festival on Friday, October 26 at 7pm, is the UK premier of Sightseers, a black comedy depicting the story of a young couples dream holiday gone wrong.

It was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Afterwards directo Ben Wheatley will be holding a question-and-answer session.

Robert said: “It’s a celebration of horror in all its forms and there’s something for everyone no matter what kind of horror fan you are.”
