This year's Horror-on-Sea festival has a packed programme mixing new shorts and independent features with some of 2015's most impressive genre discoveries. There will also be special guests and a screenwriting workshop. Events are centred around the Park Inn Palace Hotel overlooking the pier and the White Bus Cinema at the TAP Gallery on North Road.

The festival runs from 22 to 31 January.
