Bristol Film Festival returns to Redcliffe Caves this Halloween with 13 classic and contemporary horror movies to sink your teeth into. Pass through our military clearance and venture deep into the caves – there have been recent unconfirmed reports of inexplicable, possibly paranormal activity within the site’s many passages and chambers, and we’d like you to go first and check for us…
We’ll be selling a selection of ales onsite from our festival beer partner Wickwar Brewing, so whether you’re a horror aficionado, a thrill-seeker, or looking for something out of the ordinary, it’s the perfect setting… if you’re brave enough to stomach the venue!

THEY SAY: “Paranormal Activity is an ingenious little horror film, so well made it’s truly scary […] It illustrates one of my favourite points, that silence and waiting can be more entertaining than frantic fast-cutting and berserk FX.” – Roger Ebert, 2007
WE SAY: The Blair Witch Project for a digital generation, this movie is simple yet devastatingly effective – and was a critical and commercial success. It’ll terrify you, then you’ll wish you’d come up with the concept first.
