Putting the CULT into culture.

Welcome to the Fear in the Fens Film Festival 2017

We've got so much classic horror, and so many great talks for you - we couldn't fit it into one day!  

Fear in the Fens 2017 will open on the evening of 
Saturday September 30,  when Nunkie Theatre Company will be performing Casting the Runes - the MR James story that inspired Night of the Demon (this event is now sold out).

On Sunday October 1, a full day of films and talks will begin with Nunkie's Robert Lloyd Parry describing MR James' relationship with the East Anglian landscape.
This will preface our screening of Night of the Demon - simply one of the best British horror films ever made and this year celebrating its 60th anniversary.

We'll then be taking in a fascinating talk on Jewish Folk Magick and the Qabalah from Michael Clarke before screening our second film, the silent classic The Golem.

We're also pleased to announce that Gavin Baddeley, whose talk on Dracula so memorably closed last year's event, has also agreed to close this year's event, with a talk that will introduce a neglected masterpiece of 70s folk-horror, Psychomania (1973).


This year we will also be featuring the Frightful Things marketplace - stand by for details of the artist, craftspeople and traders taking part.

Tickets are now on sale, and start from just £7. Some tickets are limited, so act fast!
