Rhyller Thriller 2

Rhyl’s Horror Film Festival returns, this May, for one day only.

Following on from last year’s hit event, Rhyller Thriller returns to the North Wales seaside town on 18th May, with more blood, gore, thrills, and chills than you can shake a chainsaw at.

The full line up is still being finalised but exclusive screenings include Tom Lee Rutter’s The Pocket Film of Superstitions, Episode One of The Three Trials, The Descent, and Dog Soldiers. Dog Soldiers’ and The Descent’s Director, Neil Marshall, along with actor Craig Conway, and writer Janine Pipe, will be hand to talk about their own experiences of creating these indie horror classics. 

Budding moviemakers with a film under 13 minutes, created with budget of less than £1000, are invited to enter the Festivals’ Bloody Seagull Award.

The fun runs from 10 am to late, with a Fringe Market, and all the usual shenanigans lined up to keep festival-goers hungry for horror.

Tickets priced at £13 and available from

Venue:  Town Hall, Rhyl, UK Rhyl LL18
