I SCREAM ON THE BEACH! (2020) Review of low-budget British horror


‘Wave goodbye to your life’

I Scream on the Beach! is a 2020 British horror feature film about a gas-masked maniac stalking a small seaside town.

Written and directed by Alexander Churchyard and Michael Holiday, based on a story by Max Davenport, the TIS Productions movie stars Hannah Paterson, Dani Thompson (My Bloody Banjo), Reis Daniel (There’s No Such Thing as Zombies) and Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman.


In the small seaside town of Mellow Coast, Emily (Hannah Paterson) is trying to discover what has happened to her father, but as she searches for answers her friends start getting picked off one-by-one by an unknown killer…


“We’ve based the look of the film on our favourite horror movies, from both our childhoods, that we rented from the video shop on VHS, and classics we’ve discovered as adults,” said Holiday and Churchyard. “The film uses a lot of practical effects, and even features appearances from some familiar faces to low-budget horror fans, such as Lloyd Kaufman from Troma. This was a real coup for us and we were really excited to have his support on the film.”


I Scream on the Beach! will have its world premiere at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival, in Southend on Sea, on January 12th, 2020.
