Interview with Alex Churchyard

Published by


For July’s London Horror Movie Club Chris and I interviewed indie horror director Alex Churchyard, best known for his award-winning summer slasher “I Scream On the Beach”. If you have missed any of his recent appearances on radio, or the article on the BBC, Alex is one of Britain’s talented and beloved indie horror directors, who are also putting Essex on the horror map.


We talk about a huge range of things: his recent appearance on the BBC, the best upcoming indie horrors, how to terrify your neighbors, and his amazing array of films including “Videoshop Tales of Terror” with Dani Thompson and “Mosaic” with Simon Bamford. You even get a chance to see his adorable dachshund Mash!

Perhaps my favourite moment, though, was when Alex was talking about having to make all his own special effects for “I Scream”. Practicing including his wife taking a shovel to a mannequin in the garden… in full view of the neighbours!
