fiends to the official website for the 2012 Shock & Gore festival, the twisted, blood-splattered spawn of Birmingham's Electric Cinema.

This year we have all kinds of creepy happenings for you, whether it be sneak previews, live comedy, exclusive Q&As, videogaming on the big screen, a gathering of horror authors, a series of unique events celebrating the video nasty and even a Hammer Horror wine tasting. Because why not?

So have a browse through our programme and see what tantalises you. And remember to keep saying to yourself –
it's only a movie, it's only a movie...

Festival Programmer
