Birmingham FearFest announces first GoH: horror director Norman J Warren

It is immense pleasure that the Birmingham Horror Group announces the guest of honour at its first Birmingham FearFest will be Norman J Warren, director of such British horror films as Satan’s Slave, Terror, Prey and Inseminoid. Further details about the event, including additional guests, will follow shortly.

Steve Green interviewed Norman in October 2016, at Manchester’s 27th Festival of Fantastic Films. You can see the video here:

Update 19/1: We’re delighted to confirm horror actress/director Eileen Daly, vampire assassin Lilith Silver in Razor Blade Smile, will be attending on the Saturday to introduce one of her films and meet fans.

UK Horror Calendar

We thought it would be a useful tool for UK horror fans to have a central list of forthcoming conventions, festivals, etc. Further events will be listed as we become aware of them. If you’re involved with one we haven’t included, please drop us a line (steve.green@ghostwords.co.uk) or leave a comment below. There’s no charge, just the hope that everyone has a great time.
