Fausti_Films @ Horror-OnSea – Weekend 2.

After the first fabulous weekend at Horror-On-Sea, the Fausti_Films team set off on Saturday 28th January, for the second weekend of the festival. A smaller event than the previous weekend, the screenings were held in the ’boutique’ screening room, at the Park Inn Hotel. This was a change from the normal venue of the TAP.

Proceedings began in ernest with a selection of short films that were free to all. My personal favourite of these were Thanatopraxy from Spain which they told the story of two women and an autopsy gone wrong.
This was followed by Jason Wilcox’s Dead Perfect. This film had hypnotic properties and features a lot of kettles boiling in seemingly real time!

At 2.30 pm came one of the highlights of the festival, ‘Circus of the Dead’, with a brilliantly intense performance by Bill Oberst Jr. and a set of homicidal clowns … Pure horror magic!!

After this came ‘The Barn’ a homage to 80s horror. Set on Halloween, the protagonists have to follow a set of trick or treat rules to protect themselves and save the town. Great fun stuff!!  

‘First Bite’ was the second film of the festival from Eileen Daly. Following the ghost hunting team on a trip to Northampton to meet an elusive count. Some laugh out loud moments in this comedy horror, made it a firm audience favourite. 

The final film of the evening was ‘Be my Cat: A Film for Anne’. This follows an obsessive director as he ‘convinces’ his actresses to create the perfect performance in order to convince Anne Hathaway to star in his film. Disturbing and gritty.

Day two saw the return of the free shorts. There were some really great shorts here. ‘Ikal’ was another great short from Spain, telling the story of a coven of witches. Followed by the atmospheric ‘Visor’ from Iran and the fab looking ‘B is for Bath’. 

After the shorts was ‘Consumption’, a tale of friends battling evil in the Utah mountains. Then came ‘Video Killer’ where a haunted video tape forces a victim to seek out other victims for help… Or can they?!?! 

Finally -for Fausti_Films anyway… Came ‘Creeper’ -A sleazy serial killer movie in the vein of William Lustig’s Maniac.

Well, sadly that’s all from Horror-On-Sea this year… just one question remains… Same time next year?! 

Forthcoming Productions From @Fausti_Films

Whilst we promote the zombie short ‘ZAF’ and London crime thriller ‘The Pyramid’ we haven’t stopped working here at Fausti_Films as we bring you the best in contemporary horror and thriller films.

We have many new projects in development.

First is ‘Steinadler’,  shot on location in Austria which tells the sort of a man’s journey down a mountain as he contemplates murder…

Steinadler is in post production and editing and should be ready for release soon.

Next on the agenda is ‘Dead Celebrities’. Footage is still being shot for this short; but it’s shaping up to be an interesting project as it’s shot almost entirely in a bathroom!!

Finally, additional footage has been shot for ‘The Ingress Tapes’, an experimental horror shot entirely on Super 8, which eaves drops on a killer’s interview whilst he confesses to his crimes.

This is shaping up to be a creepy favourite amongst the Fausti_Films crew. Watch out for this at a Film festival near you soon.

Fausti_Films @Horror-on-Sea -Weekend One

It’s January 20th 2017, and that can only mean one thing…. set off to Southend-on-Sea for the annual ‘Horror-on-Sea’ film festival.

Unfortunately, due to  work commitments and illness some of the team missed the first day (😢). Despite this, those team members in attendance really enjoyed the first day.

Day One had an amazing line up of the best of contemporary, new horror from around the world. Beginning with Ebola Zombies… with a title like that, who’d want to miss it!! This film was preceeded by some excellent short films, the touching Robot animation ‘GoldenShot’ and the highly entertaining ‘Mother’-certainly one of the highlights of the shorts (alongside ‘The Pyramid’ of course!)

Due to a last minute technical issue ‘Chimeres’ was replaced by ‘The Millenium Bug’ which was great fun and highly entertaining. By far the highlight of day one was ‘Savageland’ a ‘mockumentary’ about strange goings-on in a border town. The cinematography and impeccable acting makes this a must see film if you get the chance.

Whilst all the films were highly enjoyable, the other noticeable highlights from day one were the two shorts ‘Judas’ and the Zombie short ‘A Father’s Day’ … fab stuff!

Day 2 began with the fascinating ‘Hell state’- the story of a real life possession, followed by ‘Exorcist: The Fallen’. Next came the highly funny shorts by Molly Brown with some entertaining and hilarious takes on dieting fads and the safe way to eat Japanese food!! This was followed by Eileen Daly’s ‘Hollywood Betrayed’ which was a hilarious exploration of ghost hunting in middle England.

Of course, the highlight for Fausti_Films (now recovered and all re-united at the festival) was ‘The Pyramid’. Screened to a packed audience at 5.30 before Jonathan Straiton’s entertaining  ‘Night Of Something Strange’. The Pyramid received excellent feedback from the audience -thanks to all those who came to support us.

The final film of day 2 brought down the house with the hilarious ‘Killer Rack’ some of us waited a year for this and it didn’t disappoint!

Day three continued the horror highlights with some more from Molly Brown in collaboration with Cy Henty. The following feature ‘Ex from Hell’ featured a witty script and some great acting.
The undisputed Fausti_Films favourite of the day was ‘Slayers’ which had some genuine belly laughs and some excellent performances by the leads.  Unfortunately, the team had to leave after ‘Nazi Vengeance’… but don’t worry… the fun is back next week as the festival continues…. stay posted for more updates!

So… less than a week to go until the Horror-On-Sea film festival starts in Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

As regular attendees to this festival we are delighted that ‘The Pyramid’ will be showing alongside Jonathan Straiton’s ‘Night Of Something Strange’.

The horror on sea festival brings the best of new horror to a genre loving audience and is one of the friendliest festivals you can hope to attend. If you are free, pop along to catch The Pyramid at 5.30 on Saturday, or better still, buy yourself a day or weekend pass. Details available at

What next for Fausti_Films? 

As well as showing ZAF and The Pyramid on the festival circuit, the Team at Fausti_Films have been busy working to bring you new material.

We have been filming footage for two new shorts. The first, Dead Celebrities, has been filmed on location in Belgium and Portugal with further footage being filmed in London in December.

The second  SteinAdler was filmed in Austria in August and will have final scenes filmed shortly. 

Fausti_films are thrilled with the footage and hope to go into post-production and editing soon. 
In addition, Matt and Michael are working on a feature film script. Exciting times… Watch this space! 

Exciting News Regarding The Pyramid

Fausti_films are delighted to report that, already, ‘The Pyramid’ is receiving a very positive reception on the festival circuit. 

It will shortly be playing at the ‘Things to Fear’ festival In Virginia, USA. The team can’t wait to hear what our friends across the pond think of our short!

Closer to home, in January, The Pyramid will show at the ‘Horror-on-Sea’ festival in Southend, Essex in the UK. This is especially thrilling for the team as we are longtime attenders of this festival! Details are still to be finalised, but we look forward to seeing the film on the big screen and hearing the audience reaction!
