Glasgow Horror Festival: BITE SIZE Roundup & Winners

by Popcorn Horror

Popcorn Horror is the new home of independent horror. Created by Horror fans for Horror fans!

We had an amazing night on Sunday hosting Glasgow Horror Festival: BITE SIZE and showcasing amazing examples of indie horror to fans in our home city. A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for the event, coming out to support indie filmmaking!

The audience enjoys the line-up of independent horror films.

We kicked off the evening with Adventures With The Dead, a show from the fantastic Ash Pryce – Psychic Conman. The show included readings, levitation, and a spooky seance vibe; leaving the audience amazed.

Ash Pryce drives a nail into his face.

Then we kicked off the film programs; two features and two categories of short horror films. A varied range of horror was on the menu – including folk-horror documentary Bella in the Wych Elm, the brutal true-crime inspired Cruel Summer as the night’s feature films.

In the Breakout Shorts selection, our audience enjoyed original, ground-breaking films including Another Game, Lunch LadiesEchoSonCarnivoresInappetence, Abandoned  and Policy

Our Classic Shorts line-up included In This EconomyLimit and the hilarious The Corpse Series.
