Ghouls on Film – Celebrating Independent Horror Films made by Women

Posted by LiveFor on January 31, 2010

On February 20th the first ever ‘Ghouls on Film’ festival comes to The Mixing Bowl theatre in Birmingham, to celebrate horror films made by women. As part of Women in Horror Recognition Month, the event will include short films, two feature-length films and very special guest, cult star Emily Booth.

Ghouls on Film will play host to the UK premiere of the acclaimed Soska Sisters’ debut feature film, ‘Dead Hooker in a Trunk’, as well as a screening of Kate Glover’s outback slasher ‘Slaughtered’. The short films include a brand new short by Maude Michaud and the award-winning film ‘Pop Art’ by Amanda Boyle. Emily Booth, best known for her TV presenting and roles in films such as Evil Aliens and Doghouse will be talking about her career in horror, as well as leading a discussion on the role of women in the horror industry.

The event begins at 3pm. Entry costs only £6, which can be paid on the day or beforehand. This is a not-for-profit event: if any profit is
made, it will be donated to charity. For full details, please visit
