    Guest Blog: Horror Blogger Wight Blood Talks The Blair Witch Project
    The Blair Witch Project was released 17 years ago and is one of my all-time favourite films. It managed to be a truly frightening film without a reliance on easy 'jump scares' or lots of blood and gore. On top of that, it had one of the cleverest, most profitable marketing campaigns in the history of cinema and is the film every fan of the big screen thinks of when they hear the words 'found footage'. Of course, as with every film that is successful, a sequel was always going to be made. It

    Review A Day: Little Shop of Horrors
    This week we review one of the Mini Screening's each day, getting you as excited as we are about the third Eastleigh Film Festival, coming to the Borough this Monday 26th September to Saturday 1st October. It’s possible that only Frank Oz could direct a movie about a singing flesh-eating plant and that it be undeniably loveable. Little Shop of Horrors is a work of B-movie magic, bringing together an electric ensemble cast for 94 minutes of rambunctious film fun. Adapted from the off-Broadway

    Review A Day: 127 Hours
    This week we review one of the Mini Screening's each day, getting you as excited as we are about the third Eastleigh Film Festival, coming to the Borough this Monday 26th September to Saturday 1st October.   Danny Boyle shows his diversity as a filmmaker in all of his memorable contributions to cinema and 127 Hours is no different. Brutal and effecting, Boyle uses his aesthetic eye to put Aron Ralston’s story on screen in an unforgiving yet wholeheartedly moving adaptation. Making his

    The Blair Witch Project takes to the big screen this autumn
    This year The Blair Witch Project makes its cinematic comeback with a sequel in the shape of director Adam Wingard’s titular Blair Witch. We here at Eastleigh Film Festival HQ (a la The Point) are seriously excited to see what the (swiftly) emerging director can do with the franchise, while thinking – well that’s good timing – as we invite you to watch the original genre-bending horror flick in the midst of the woods at Itchen Valley Country Park. A game-changing development in the genre, the

    Lost Legends: Eastleigh Film Festival pays tribute to two classic British actors
    At this year’s Eastleigh Film Festival we are paying our respects to two iconic British actors whose contributions were not just seen on screen, but across T.V. and the stage. These two thespians were diverse in their selection of roles and both possessed some of the most unique talents that the big screen has ever seen.
