Horror-On-Sea Film Festival 2020: I Scream on the Beach!

I Scream on the Beach! is a horror comedy written and directed by Alexander Churchyard and Michael Holiday. It stars Hannah Paterson, Dani Thompson, Reis Daniel, Jamie Evans, Lloyd Kaufman, Leigh Trifari, Martin W. Payne, Rob Shaw, Tess Gustard, Mark Keegan, Andrea Sandell, Will Jones, Swaylee Loughnane and Michael Fausti. A psychotic killer stalks a small seaside town as a young woman investigates the disappearance of her father. 

Coming into this, I had no idea what to expect, aside from it being a slasher film of sorts. To my surprise, it was exceedingly engaging and entertaining. The lighting and coloring worked great, playing like a classic throwback slasher film, and the music was fantastic. There were some awesome performances from a truly talented cast, with some terrific costumes and makeup.

This film was a little light on the horror and gore, and leaned more towards the comedy aspect. The killer was badass and probably the best part about the film, overall. However, the ending is definitely noteworthy and something fans will not expect. When it comes to the most bizarre endings of all time, this is certainly up there. It’s so insane, you’ll either love it or hate it.

I Scream on the Beach! is dark and humorous. It’s super campy and will leave everyone screaming for more. It’s ridiculous and fun as hell. Everyone is going to be talking about this one, you don’t want to miss it.
