This week we are talking a little about one of the films that will be shown at the Bridgslaughter Horror Film Festival, at The Cobblestones, 15th June 2pm until 8pm.

Banshee, is a nice little horror short about a little girl and her big sister. While she was under the supervision of her big sister, Olivia got lost into the woods overnight and got back with something different. She didn’t come back alone.

Banshee stars, Janice Kingsley and Sienna Mazzone. Janice Kingsley was born in London, Ontario, Canada. She is an actress, known for Murdoch Mysteries (2008), Dirty Singles (2014) and Double Crossed (2015).

Sienna Mazzone is known for her work on Sweeping Forward (2014) and Assassin’s Creed: Origins (2017).

Director and Producer, Adam O’Brien, evolved in the movie business almost 15 years ago. He started as a technician on a multiple of productions and moved his way up to being a director.

He has worked on commercials, music videos and finally ended up with films and TV shows.

He has also worked on a multiple of short films which have been very well received in over 30 film festivals around the world, these include Loss (2009), Bloodbath (2011) and A Little Off the Top (2012). In 2013, Adam had the opportunity to direct 26 episodes of a 3D animation TV show named “Jerry and the Raiders” where he had the chance to use motion capture, game engines and a new technology created by Fake Studio. However, he has always been into the horror and sci-Fi genre.

In 2014, he directed and produced Insane, a horror short film exploring a true event which occurred in 1925 in an old sanatorium. The film started the festival tour and has already received nominations for Best Horror short, Best Sound and Best Actress.


BRIDGSLAUGHTER is a small horror film festival, taking place over 6 hours at The Cobblestones on June 15th.

We have scoured the world of indie horror to bring you a collection of great short horror films from the UK and several other countries.

This is the first of our film festivals, which we are hosting in Bridgwater, aimed at bringing the films to you here, so that you don’t have to go to the bigger cities where they are usually found in film festivals, such as London, Manchester and overseas.

We are not only going to be showing horror at these festivals, as they will range from family films to general genre.

With this, our first festival, we are looking at the attendance and will be seeing if there is a call for more films.
