Mayhem Film Festival (Shorts) and Overview!! (October 2016)

Enjoying some down-time with horror film-maker: John @ Mayhem Film Festival 2016.
Broadway Cinema in Nottingham, was the setting this past weekend of the infamous Mayhem Film Festival for 2016. I admit, I only watched the shorts and enjoyed Liam Banks' "Sandman" (2016) and "Nasty" (2015) by Prano Bailey-Bond. The total of the shorts lasted two hours and were held upstairs to a packed audience and full-house of ticket buyers. All the shorts were well put together for the Saturday evening, but the following stuck with myself...

Sandman: A simple story of a claustrophobic tale of a woman at night, afraid to go to sleep and based upon a Creepy Pasta short story. Jump cuts and uneasy effects were the order of the day in this film. A low budget, but others seemed to mention this film afterwards, too.

Nasty: A young boy is obsessed with old VHS/video tapes of the horror of yesterday-year! It was told with video grain and was quite original and disturbing. One for fans of The Evil Dead (1981) - See, REVIEW - and general video-nasty fans!

Also, about selling on stores were Arrow Video and Shudder UK, a premiere online horror streaming website. For the FULL Saturday Line-Up, see, HERE via Jonny T's Cult Film Blog.
