Total Cults release a book!

Posted: December 4, 2014 in Uncategorized

Our friends over at Total Cults have released a rather awesome book just in time for Christmas.

Entitled ‘Total Cults: How To Love Movies You Probably Shouldn’t’ – it’s packed with weird stuff about cult movies, discussions of films you’ve never heard of… And HOW cool is that cover?

Go and pick up a copy.


Total Cults Book

The heroine of TrashHouse returns for the first time in a decade in this insane short, completely filmed in a mere ten hours by an incredibly dedicated cast and crew!


The long-awaited UK release of the Director’s Cut of The Devil’s Music is almost upon us.

The good folk at Cine du Monde will be unleashing this fantastic disc over the summer (exact date to follow shortly!) and we’re sure you’ll agree that it’s worth the wait. It’s an award-winning, critically acclaimed rock and roll nightmare.

The Devil's Music

Pat Higgins’ live show from the 2013 Horror-on-Sea festival is still FREE to watch online for a limited time only. This hour long, NSFW special features clips, tricks, advice and guidance for how YOU can make your own micro-budget horror classic. Empire called Pat the ‘Essex Auteur’, Fangoria called him one of the ‘most promising British horror directors’ and Total Film simply called him a ‘funny guy’. The director of four internationally released feature films and the creator of Strippers vs Werewolves, there’s loads of useful stuff here. Just don’t ask about his attic…

Horror on Sea Tickets

Horror on Sea Tickets

Attention fans of the macabre and the horrific! Southend’s very own Horror-on-Sea Film Festival returns this year, bringing chaos and disorder to the big screen at the Park Inn Palace Hotel. Whether it’s nerve-shredding blood and gore, monsters on the loose or something eerie and creepy that you crave, Horror-on-Sea is the place to be!
There are 18 films, with supporting shorts, over the three days of mayhem. Excellent value Day Passes will save you money, but the ‘Big News’ is the Weekend Passes, which will save you a massive £40 off the total ticket price. These are on sale now. But hurry: there are only 100 available!
The full programme (including Pat Higgins’ Masterclass) and ticket details can be found at
Look if you dare, and we’ll see you in January!

Fake Blood, Real Guts!

Hey folks

Sorry for the extended period of radio silence since our movie The Devil’s Music hit VOD (if you haven’t seen it yet, what the hell are you waiting for? Check it out RIGHT HERE). We’ve been plotting and scheming our next wave of cool stuff for you all. Still, if you’re suffering withdrawal from my ramblings about various stuff besides horror, you can check out my articles for Huffington Post.

A couple of announcements, both relating to the Horror-on-Sea festival in my hometown of Southend-on-Sea in January. First of all, this will be the venue for the first performance of my 2014 live show/masterclass/thing where I talk about making horror movies, which is called Fake Blood, Real Guts! It’s at 3pm on Saturday 18th January.

Fake Blood, Real Guts

Elsewhere on the packed festival programme, you can catch the first ever screening of the Special Edition of KillerKiller, our twist on the slasher movie. The movie has been long unavailable in the UK for long and boring reasons, and this will be the first festival screening of the flick since 2007. It’s also the VERY FIRST SCREENING ANYWHERE of the new version, with dozens of little alterations along the way. That’s happening on the Sunday.

KillerKiller Special Edition

It’s going to be a brilliant festival, and I really hope to meet you there.

Incidentally, if you didn’t see LAST year’s live show, you can still check it out for free (although it probably won’t be free forever) by checking out the player at the foot of this post.

Rock on,

I’ve started regularly blogging for Huffington Post.

You can check out my stuff via the profile page and please be sure to Fan/Follow/Like so you’ll get the updates.

New blog entries are likely to hit on Mondays/Tuesdays. I’ll be covering a wider range of topics than I do here, but it’s largely gonna be Entertainment and Media stuff, so you’ll hopefully find something of interest.

Since the Evil Apps campaign closed, we’ve been planning some awesome new Jinx stuff for the rest of 2013.

Stay tuned…
