Good Tidings – UK, 2016 – reviews



‘Just when you thought it was safe to look at the calendar again’

Good Tidings is a 2016 British horror film directed by Stuart W. Bedford (Apocalypse) from a screenplay co-written with Giovanni Gentile and Stu Jopia. It is produced by Two-Headed Snake Entertainment and Blue Fox Entertainment.

Director-writer Stuart W. Bedford explained the ethos behind the production: “We’ve always been fascinated by exploitation movies. Good Tidings is our love-letter to those phenomenal slashers from the 70’s and 80’s, tied together by a festive satire: Christmas is cruel to the poor.”

The film had a micro budget of £15,000 and was shot on location in a disused courthouse in Southport, Merseyside.

“Stuart W. Bedford directs with a keen eye, and together with a witty script makes damn well sure that every scene is either filled with Christmas spirit or buckets of blood. Aided ably by cinematographer Shane de Almeida, he creates some truly iconic frames, and he a great handle on the atmosphere and tension.” Elliott Maguire, UK Horror Scene
